South East show, 32bit Impression, and moreIt's all quiet on the RISC OS front at the moment. Here's a round up of things that have been happening in our sleepy platform.
The exhibitor list for the South East show has been confirmed. The usual suspects are listed, including RISCOS Ltd., Castle, Spellings, MW Software, CJE Micros, but no Advantage Six.
Work on 32 bit Impression is apparently "well under way", according to Xample. And you'd think so too, given that it's nearly two years since they picked up the DTP software from Computer Concepts, whose RiscPC has allegedly packed up and unable to produce any more Impression copies. Turning down offers to advertise for extra hands to help out in the porting, Xample's Paul Reuvers said, "Although I haven't been able to spend as much time on [Impression] during the past year as I hoped, provisions are being taken to ensure that more time can be dedicated to it."
Castle have updated their Iyonix FAQ, although it's lacking questions like 'Why does shutdown no longer work?', which crops up from time to time on the Iyonix mailing list. Castle say they have tweaked their site so that it's now easier for them to add answers to the list. Castle's Jack Lillingston was also speaking at ROUGOL tonight, running through this year's press releases to punters and teasing them with details of their ARM9 embedded projects.
Qercus is celebrating the opening of its new office at editor John Cartmell's house, which was apparently up for sale in March. Drop the magazine team an email, if their email is working in time, to get a party invite for the 21st. On a related note, the online publication RISC OS Cybervillage apologises for a lack of updates due to the editor losing the site's FTP password.
RiScript, we notice, has released version 5.01 to its users. Martin Avison is preparing a new version of debugging aid Reporter, with updates to the user interface, configuration system, the BASIC BackTrace feature, and the log-to-disc feature.
