WarpIN and XWorkplace version 0.9.9 released

October 05, 2001 by Ulrich Moeller

WarpIN and XWorkplace version 0.9.9 released

WarpIN and XWorkplace have both been updated to V0.9.9.

1. WarpIN V0.9.9 has been released.

WarpIN is intended to become the new universal OS/2 installer. It is becoming more and more popular among
OS/2 developers because of its flexibility and ease of
use. It has full system configuration (CONFIG.SYS, WPS classes, WPS objects) and can fully undo all the
changes to your system again.

V0.9.9 fixes a considerable number of bugs. WarpIN should be more stable in general now; some new features
have also been added.

You will need this new version to install the new

2. XWorkplace V0.9.9 is out also.

XWorkplace is the most feature-rich freeware Workplace
Shell enhancer on the planet, and even better, it is OpenSource. XWorkplace is the successor to my popular
XFolder utility and has become a Netlabs project.

Among many other things, XWorkplace gives you the
following features:

-- Tons of folder enhancements, such as status bars, freely configurable context menus, global sort options, and much more.

-- Extended file associations, which replace the illogical WPS associations by type and filter separately.

-- Easy CONFIG.SYS management thru a WPS object.

-- A trash can which supports all WPS delete operations.

-- Replacement default icons.

-- Improvements to startup and shutdown: boot logos, a replacement startup folder, a complete rewrite of the OS/2 shutdown sequence (including automatic reboot, APM power-off, and a shutdown folder).

-- Mouse and keyboard enhancements, including sliding focus, sliding menus, global object hotkeys, folder hotkeys, mouse-button-3 scrolling.

-- Enhanced multimedia, such as more system sounds.

V0.9.9 fixes another pack of bugs and adds new features, among them new XCenter widgets.

To install XWorkplace, you also need the latest WarpIN.

3. My homepage has moved. To get the new WarpIN and
XWorkplace, please go to:

WarpIN and XWorkplace are Netlabs projects, released under the GNU General Public Licence. The source code is available on the Netlabs CVS server. See and my homepage for details.

We have created four mailing lists at

-- warpin-user
-- warpin-dev
-- xworkplace-user
-- xworkplace-dev

for WarpIn and XWorkplace users and developers,

We are grateful for feedback on these mailing lists.

Have fun!
