Oregano 3 future relying on user demandBy Chris Williams. Published: 12th Mar 2005, 13:10:06 | Permalink | Printable
Email firstname.lastname@example.orgOregano 3 could soon be a reality provided the userbase shows sufficient interest, says OreganoUK. According to boss Richard Brown, the company is ready to "commit a significant amount of money to bring out Oregano 3", and has appealed for punters to email in to show support.
"You may make comments if you wish but please no questions, I am just interested in seeing the response. As you will have gathered from this group O3 development has been moving faster recently," said Richard earlier today on the Oregano mailing list. His call comes just a day after a similar web broswer appeal from another developer.
He added: "The full specification is not known at this moment in time we will elaborate further nearer the release time."
If you want to show support or interest, give Richard a pep talk or otherwise let your feelings known, drop an email to
yes [at] oreganouk [dot] net.
What we'd call Oregano 3 is otherwise known as the rather blandly named 'TV Browser', which is currently being employed in various pieces of kit, including Sony's PlayStation 2, as an embedded web browser (pictured above). Oregano is developed by Oregan, and the RISC OS port is distributed by OreganoUK. OreganoUK and Oregan were due to engage in talks over an updated RISC OS port around Christmas 2004.
