Gus Mueller et al at Flying Meat Software are good people. Service matters and Acorn 4.0.5, with its score and more bug fixes, is a case in point.

There are gods among men and just plain cool people — Gus Mueller et al at Flying Meat Software number among the latter, though I have my suspicions about the former. Service matters and Acorn 4.0.5, with its score and more bug fixes, is a case in point.

— Fixed a bug where the Save panel would sometimes show a checkbox in the middle of the file listing when you had versions turned on.
— Fixed a bug where the tools palette color well wouldn’t update its color if you changed the color of a text box via the font palette.
