ROL to launch Adjust on CDBy Chris Williams. Published: 17th Feb 2005, 18:32:25 | Permalink | Printable
Foundation magazine compilation on DVDRISCOS Ltd. is set to launch a softloadable version of RISC OS Adjust. The 26bit RISC OS 4.39 will be released on CD to enable users to "experience the Select experience without subscribing to the Select scheme", according to the OS developers. RISC OS Adjust is near identical to Select release 3i4.
The Adjust CD will cost £95 and will allow punters to later upgrade to a full Select subscription, for the difference in price between the CD version and the relevant subscription rate, within 90 days of the Select 4 release. RISCOS Ltd. inform us that a Select 4 launch is pencilled in for sometime later this year.
RISCOS Ltd. say they will launch the Adjust CD at this month's South West show, along with a DVD compilation of all 16 issues of Foundation Risc User magazine.
RISCOS Ltd.'s Paul Middleton told us: "This will be available on a sliding scale for current Foundation members and Select subscribers, as well as non-Subscribers and new subscribers. There will also be special bundles of Adjust ROMs with the DVD, a Lite-On DVD drive with the DVD, new Foundation membership and DVD, Select and DVD."
We're told that RISC OS Select and Adjust can read DVD discs, and the compilation disc's content is stored in HTML format for those with PC and Apple computers.

RISC OS 5 pictured running on ARM Cortex-A8 kit
Picture exclusive - This grainy photograph shows a port of RISC OS 5, sourced from the RISC OS Open project, running on a Beagleboard - a device powered by a 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor with a built-in graphics chip. The port, developed by Jeffrey Lee with help from Uwe Kall and ROOL staff, is seen as a major breakthrough for the shared-source project as it proves the OS can be ported to new hardware without the need for a large team of engineers.
