Office 2010 Starter Beta

Posted in Beta, Business Software, Web Apps, Windows

Microsoft Office 2010Well, news have been spreading around in the Internet world that even before Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Beta is officially released for testing, there were already torrents found online. Personally, I won’t really recommend any one to try downloading these unauthorised software, fearing that there could be bugs, of even viruses that come along with the setup.

On the other hand, if you truly want to be an official beta tester, why not do it the right way – via the Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Program Nomination Form [Microsoft via Digital Inspiration]. The new version, known as Office 2010 Starter Edition, will include Word and Excel applications but with limited functionality.

Here is a comment provided by the official:

All you need to do is use Office Starter 2010 Beta at home over the next few months, and let us know what you think. Office Starter 2010 includes Microsoft Word Starter 2010 and Microsoft Excel Starter 2010, which are great for basic tasks like writing letters, editing your resume, or creating a family budget.

The public beta of Office 2010 will start later this year though you can try Office Web Apps now itself.

Google Chrome 4.0.223.16 Beta

Posted in Beta, Fun Stuff, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

Google ChromeI have to apologise for my delay in reporting the latest software release on this site. Now that I am back, I hope to write up more reports here. Google Chrome 4.0.223.16 Beta is now released.

It is probably not a surprise to you when most of Google’s applications are labelled “beta“, but not for Google Chrome. Its stable version is at version 3.x, whereas this release is the next version of 4.x.

This new beta comes with many speed improvements. Google Chrome is becoming dynamic, with the ability to construct and change elements on web pages as fast as possible. Performance scores have improved by 30% since our current stable release, measured by Mozilla’s Dromeao DOM Core Tests!

Posted in Beta, Development Software, Fun Stuff, Linux, Site News, Software Companies

Ubuntu 9.10Ubuntu 9.10 will be released in 4 days’ time. So, be patient! The Release Candidate versions are, however, currently available for download if you wish to test them out. In this version, there is a host of new features.

Firstly, in terms of boot up, the performance has shown in some tests, that it took much shorter time. Thanks for the enhanced Upstart script written by Scott James Remnant.

With UbuntuOne integration, Ubuntu users can use the service as a storage server and share files with fellow Ubuntu users. 2GB of storage is given as a default. The service allows synchronisation of files, contacts and Tomboy notes across all Ubuntu computers and the Ubuntu Cloud. If you require more space, additional storage is available at a monthly subscription charge.

TMonitor 1.01 Beta – from CPUID

Posted in Beta, Fun Stuff, Utilities, Windows

CPUID has just rolled out a new product – TMonitor 1.01 Beta. This application is aimed to display the active clock of each individual thread of a multi-core, multi-threaded processor.

The software has a very high refresh rate (~20Hz) that allows users to visualize the smallest clock variation in real time. TMonitor is able to detect mechanism such as Intel Turbo boost, and therefore allows to clearly visualize its effect as the processor is working.

Check out the image on the right to view the effect of Turbo Technology on an Intel Core i7 870 based on a Lynnfield core. Unfortunately, it only works on Intel Core 2 and Core i3/i5/i7 processors.

Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99

Posted in Beta, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

I have just received notification to upgrade my Firefox browser to the latest version of Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99. The code “b99″ sounds a little interesting, as this is probably the first time I have seen Mozilla come up with this codename.

This version is a preview of Firefox 3.5, the upcoming version of the Firefox web browser. It has not yet gone through a full set of quality assurance tests, and should not be considered as a release candidate. Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate is expected to be issued shortly. At that time users will be automatically upgraded to that version.

Mozilla Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 – Finally Another Beta

Posted in Beta, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Web Apps, Windows

I thought Mozilla Firefox 3.1.x will never release the next beta version any more; but as I was unsuspecting this outcome, Mozilla Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 has finally been released by Mozilla.

Below are some of the changes in this version:

  • * Beta is now available in 64 languages.
  • * Improved the new Private Browsing Mode.
  • * Improvements to web worker thread support.
  • * Improved performance and stability with the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine.
  • * New native JSON support.
  • * Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
  • * Support for new web technologies such as the and elements, the W3C Geolocation API, JavaScript query selectors, CSS 2.1 and 3 properties, SVG transforms and offline applications.

As this is still currently under development stage, it is strongly advised not to deploy this version on your production machine. The official stable version of Mozilla Firefox 3.0.7 should be used instead.
