I tried to downlaod RIOT Radical Image Optimization Tool 0.5.2, but got the message 'The remote server returned an error (404) Not Found. Please retry'.
I notice on the website http://luci.criosweb.ro/riot/ there is a new version 0.6.

Apologies for my newbie ignorance, but I have no idea if SyMenu should pick this up automatically or if human intervention is required.

Just a thought. This is obviously a rewrite/big upgrade. Is there a way that SyMenu can have more than one version of a program available to download. I note there is already often 86 and 64 versions. I also note that RIOT (and many other programs) offer more than one release.

You are right.
I've just updated the RIOT definition.
Update the SyMenu suite definitions and you will get the new RIOT version available in SyMenu.

Yes a human intervention is required. Me and other editors are scanning the web daily to find if new versions are available. Sometimes our scanning rules are not perfect so a major version, like the RIOT one, can be ignore. So thank you for your report, I changed my scanning rule so it should be always updated from now on.

If you are interested in becoming an editor for the SyMenu suite you can read these URLs and eventually send me private message for further details:
http://www.ugmfree.it/SyMenuSPSBuilder.aspx (SPS Builder is the tool to build the program definitions)
http://www.ugmfree.it/Forum/messages.aspx?TopicID=450 (PAT is the tool to scan the web for new program versions)

Regarding multiple versions the RIOT case is quite unique. If I'm not wrong we have only another program available in multiple flavors (DesktopOK x86, x64 and Unicode x86).
Since this program is under my control I can assure you that is a pain to maintain the same software three times..... I give it up willingly.
