Affordable engineeringRiscCAD version 9 is now officially available, after briefly going on sale at last month's Wakefield show. The 2D design software returned to life after author David Buck returned to RISC OS scene late last year.
The package now supports up to 8 views per drawing, with automatic switching between windows using the mouse pointer. There's also "on-the-fly" snapping, with a secondary cursor to show where the snap point will be; isometric and oblique grids with configurable grid angle; ability to search for text in a drawing; improved and faster pattern filling and various other updates.
The software is also now, according to David, compatible with Richard Halls' SpecialFX application, so that lines are now drawn to the screen with smoother anti-aliasing.

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.

Castle publish 100MBit details
Yes, that's right. 100MBit is a typo, innit?
