Site news The Register has teamed up with Betanews.com, the US online tech publication, to launch our very own software downloads channel at http://downloads.theregister.co.uk. We trust you will find it useful.

Readers with long memories may recall that we had a downloads channel once before. This was popular at first, but the guys behind the scenes — good in every other respect — had other day jobs. And this meant that content was updated less frequently than it could have been.

Our lesson from this is to hook up with a company with software downloads in its DNA. Betanews has years of experience in the field, with its very successful Fileforum website, Fileforum's dedicated team will look after quality control and ensure that Reg Downloads is kept up to date with daily refreshes.

You can find the link to Reg Downloads on the navigation bar of the front page and also at Reg Hardware and Channel Register. ®
