Rene release of XCOPY 1.0
I have posted a suggested replacement of the XCOPY program, which has been submitted by René Ableidinger. You'll find it here on the FreeDOS archive at ibiblio. This version of XCOPY is *not* the official version by Joe (which is part of the latest FreeDOS distribution.) This is a new version written by René Ableidinger <firstname.lastname@example.org> and is an unofficial version. Discussion about the two versions of XCOPY should be posted to the FreeDOS mailing list.
FreeDOS web site redesign
Yes, the FreeDOS web site redesign has finally started to happen!
I've updated all the index.html files, plus a few other pages that get
hit a lot. The CGI-generated pages have not yet been updated, but
that is coming soon. In the meantime, if you find that any of the
redesigned pages have bad links, please email me. Also: the new design
should allow mirror sites to put the mirror anywhere in their doc
root, not just on '/freedos'. So if you have problems posting the
redesigned site elsewhere in your doc root, let me know.
ESSoft-GUI for DOS
A new GUI for DOS has hit the scene. From their web site: Welcome to the official web site of ESSoft. We currently offer many free applications for DOS, including our graphical user interface for DOS ESSoft-GUI . As well as our DOS software, ESSoft is also currently working on some Microsoft Windows software which could be released soon, and perhaps in the near future we may release some software for GNU/Linux. Looks like screenshots aren't available yet, but should be soon. ESSoft-GUI is also soon to be under the GNU GPL software licence.
Using DR-DOS FAT32 in FreeDOS?
Recently, a user sent me this note about adding FAT32 support to FreeDOS using the drfat32 program from DR-DOS. Although the FreeDOS kernel is adding FAT32 support directly, I thought I would make this note available as a technote, anyway. So if you already own a copy of DR-DOS in addition to FreeDOS, this may be something you could look at to read your FAT32 partitions from within FreeDOS. Technote146

FreeDOS web site redesign (update)
Thanks, everyone, for the great feedback on the FreeDOS web site. Unfortunately, this wasn't the best week to work on the redesign, as it turns out. However, I am trying to keep things moving. I am trying to tweak one or two final things before I put this live. Expect the redesign to go up within a few days. If things seem a little broken on the redesign in the meantime, it probably means I'm working on something.
FreeDOS Help - updated

FreeDOS success story
Sven wrote to tell me about his recent success with FreeDOS:
thank you for starting and keeping alive the FreeDOS project. The OS
works great on a 486 beside FreeBSD and I even got it booted on my Nokia
9110i cell-phone! :)
Unfortunately there's no useful ax.25 software for Linux, so I
remembered one I used under M$-DOS 10 yrs ago. Thanks to bad luck, my
old M$-DOS disk were broken. Then google guided me to FreeDOS.

Watcom C/C++ is available
It's been reported from several places: an unofficial version of Watcom C/C++ version 11 (and Fortran) is available! Go to www.openwatcom.org, Download, Browse FTP Site and voila in the folder ZIP's is all!! [...] Judging from the openwatcom newsgroup: - this is a pre-BETA 11.0c binary patch release. - it is assumed that you already have Watcom 11.0/a/b. - that said, it you don't have such an earlier version, you can still download this and use it to produce 16-bit DOS applications. You can also produce 32-bit DPMI applications if you get DOS4GW.EXE 1.97 or Causeway seperately.
