Out Now! LiteXL 2.1.0r1 by Walkero 

Hope you are all ready for one more release of LiteXL editor, for both AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS. This release is one of the best I made because there are a lot of new features and fixes.

This release brings the code more up-to-date with the official repository and closer to the v2.1 release, which is still in development. This means that we have the latest code as it is created by the original team, which will make future releases easier to be ported unless a huge change will happen.

Help needed for the Krueger family to pay for funeral expenses.

One of our Amiga Developers (Jamie Krueger -BitbyBit Software) lost his younger brother….

On the 27th of November 2021 we lost our little brother Greg Krueger.
The loss of Greg has been a very tragic for our family, Greg was very loving Father, Son, and Brother. He enjoyed helping others in need. He helped care for our Grandmother and others in the community as a personal care giver for senior services.
Greg also helped improve homes as a very talented window and door installer and worked on many homes in Southern Wisconsin.
We ask for help paying unexpected funeral expenses as we lost Greg way too soon.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
