ROL extends Select offer through JanuaryBy Chris Williams. Published: 18th Jan 2005, 13:44:25 | Permalink | Printable
Another January saleRISCOS Ltd. have extended their Christmas special offer on Select to the end of January. While joining other RISC OS companies in launching January sales of sorts, ROL cite "excellent demand for RISC OS 4.39 ROMs" as the reason behind the offer.
Provided you're not already a subscriber to the RISC OS Select scheme, you can pick up a set of RISC OS Adjust ROMs (4.39) and a year of Select updates for 165 quid, or 150 quid if you're upgrading from RISC OS 4.
RISCOS Ltd. recently informed one Select subscriber: "It is very likely that we will be offering non-Select subscribers a special offer on Select 4 when it is released in a few months, so please keep an eye out for that announcement."
As far as we understand, Select32 (a 32bit Iyonix compatible form of Select) is separate to Select 4, which is the next installment in the ongoing Select scheme. According to an earlier chat with RISCOS Ltd., Select32 will essentially be a 32bit build of Select 4, that's released after the 26bit Select 4 is finished. Also, Kinetic card users suffering from boot problems with Select 3 have found that the fault can be cured if both memory banks in a RiscPC are populated with SIMMs of at least 8M capacity. It's not known if this will help all users, though.

Google to fund another round of NetSurf development
Development work on the open source NetSurf web browser project will once again be funded by Google as part of the internet giant's Summer of Code scheme. NetSurf has been accepted into this year's GSoC, which pays students to develop open source software during their holiday, under the guidance of a mentor. Last year the NetSurf project mentored four students in the development of various improvements including a new HTML parser and PDF export functionality. This year it's hoped budding engineers, who must first successfully apply for a place to work on the browser, will work on keyboard shortcut support, improvements to the way the software displays web pages, a Windows and Apple port and more.
