Omega ethernet shipsBy Chris Williams. Published: 17th May 2004, 19:56:31 | Permalink | Printable
Another tick on the features listMicroDigital have officially confirmed, and publicly no less, that Omega ethernet support is in the post to UK based punters.
"We today shipped out the first batch of ethernet cards with version 4.34 of our driver software to UK Omega users and we should finish supplying all back orders by the middle of this week," reads the MD website, as updated this evening.
MicroDigital admitted that the Omega ethernet sub-system suffers from stability issues ("odd niggling problems that show up from time to time") when using RISC OS 4.03, however, the problems ("obscure bugs") have been addressed in later versions of RISC OS 4.
An Omega with a network card fitted was on display at last weekend's Wakefield show, and Mark Rowan took some photos - the Omega in the interesting case was on the Liquid Silicon stand.
According to MicroDigital's priority list, XScale support and USB are next, after ethernet support.
