Reorganization of RR Software, Inc's Website
January 4, 2017
You've probably noticed that some things have changed around here. We've
reorganized this website to make it easier to use for you and easier to update
for us. Some highlights follow.
First, we've expanded the old newsletter section into a more flexible
RR's Ramblings section. This expands the scope
of the section beyond pure product news to commentary and technical discussions
on our products and beyond. In particular, we intend to let our president (who
is the editor of the Ada Standard) tell us about interesting topics in the
evolution of Ada (in general, and about Ada 202x in particular), and how those
issues could affect our products in the future. (Anyone who knows him and
his writing style will know why this section has the name it does. ☺)
The older news articles are still available in
the Ramblings archive.
Second, we're created a pair of Support Centers for
Janus/Ada and Claw.
This will simplify finding information about a specific product. It will also
make the support information easier to maintain; there is only a single version
of each page which is intended to be printable but still not be a dead-end after
reading. The support centers also make it easier to skim the information available
to see if something similar to your question is covered. The old FAQs were mainly
designed to be read from top to bottom, but that is too unwieldy if enough topics
Finally, we've also cleaned up many pages, freshening the information
(particularly adding Windows 10 information) and eliminating references to
dead products (particularly the DOS Extender product line, which will not
run on any current operating system - the most modern that we know worked was
We expect the site to continue to evolve. We're considering updates to
page navigation to both modernize it and make the pages more mobile friendly.
We'd also be interested in your feedback on the changes that we've already made
and any that we could consider in the future. Send your comments to
