Euro 2008

What’s Euro 2008 and why it exists?
It's a simple application for managing the UEFA Euro 2008 Austria-Switzerland championship. With this program you can view the match schedule, save the final score, show both groups and second stage table, build and export simple statistics and, optionally, you can also update the results on-line.

Software license
Euro 2008 is donation ware: freeware with optional contribution.
What’s this means?
Euro 2006 is freeware because you can use it for free. Unlike shareware application that are limited in trial period and functions, with Euro 2008 you get a fully functional and free application (with online update service included).
Ok, but what’s about the optional contribution?
Euro 2008 exists in four version (MacOS8/9, Mac OS X, Windows, Linux), each version is available in two languages (IT,EN), it has icons and “Read Me” files customized for the various platform. This means that software development has required much time and resources.
Thus, if you like this software, feel free to send a little contribution, a comment and the version you’re using at the postal address showed at the end of this document or by using the "Donate..." button inside the application. I’ll really appreciate this. Thank you very much.

Main features

- The statistics data are exportable in both text and HTML format.
- Proxy support (even with basic authentication method)

Euro 2008 FAQ
Q: This software don’t calculate automatically the teams rank in each groups. Why?
A: The automatic computation, besides being complex to handle for the drawing method applied in case of complete parity, could limit the software usage for the “try to modify results and look what happened on 2° stage table” approach.
