Recent releases

    Release Notes: This upgrade fixes the arrow keys, which stopped working in newer Linux versions. It adds some higher screen resolutions. The Glade version, which is the nice looking GTK version of RAPID, is broken on the author's machine. The file is still available for others to try, in case it still works for some individuals. That version is 6.02.

            If I shut down the website, look in for Rapid.

            RAPID colours fixed with version 5.10
            All colour depths now work with v 5.10. Available on Feb 15/99.

            Faint screen colours due to colour depth problem with xrapid
            Versions 5.09 and less of Rapid only work with a colour depth of 8.
            Higher colour depths cause Rapid to display faint colours
            such that the menus do not appear or the graphs are faint.

            You can change your colour depth of X-windows by setting
            all the /etc/XF86Config, 'section "Screen"' areas to contain a line
            that says : DefaultColorDepth 8
            and then Rapid will work.

            The next version of Rapid (version 5.10) will fix this problem.
            I hope to release it before the end of February 1999.
