RiscCAD returns to authorBy Chris Williams. Published: 3rd Nov 2004, 12:18:03 | Permalink | Printable
Welcome backSoftware developer David Buck has taken back control of development, sales and marketing of RiscCAD from dealer APDL.
Dave commented in his announcement: "May I take this opportunity to thank APDL for their efforts in the last few years in promoting RiscCAD. I am not yet sure what I will do with the software, but I will support existing users who have any queries."
David began writing computer aided design (CAD) software in the 1980s, for his Master Compact, and then later for his Arthur powered A310 Archimedes.
"RiscCAD does not have as much assembler in it as people may think, probably about 20K, so it should not be difficult to make it 32bit. It may already run on the 32 bit OS, as the code if fairly simple and does not do anything 'naughty'," Dave told drobe.co.uk. "However, I have been out of the RISC OS scene for about 4 years, so I can't say for certain, and I will need to do some research.
"As for what is planned for it. I'm not sure. I may decide not to market and sell it, so I may just release it as PD."
If you have any questions, you can drop David an email at david [dot] buck [at] freeuk [dot] com.
