A new version of RISC OS 5 is today available via Castle's Internet based update distribution software. RISC OS 5.11 contains bug fixes to the Iyonix's ethernet networking driver, EtherK, to address a fault with stalling connections - as seen occasionally in ShareFS. The USB stack has been tweaked to support USB radio projects and similar software. The RISC OS Flash ROM image was also built using optimisations included in the latest publically available version of the Norcroft C/C++ compiler, as sold by Castle.
RISC OS 5.11 is a stable release, unlike its earlier cousin 5.10, which saw the introduction of improved Nvidia card handling during the start up of the computer.

A third version of RISC OS 5.11 has been issued within days of the initial release. The updates fix a Window Manager bug and a fault with USB scanners, as reported by users who upgraded to 5.11.
With the Iyonix mailing list in trouble because of a Smartgroups problem, feedback on 5.11 is a bit difficult. However, a number of us are suffering from scanner freezing after the upgrade; interestingly, this is exactly the same problem that a fellow ROUGOL member gets with 5.10. I've had to revert to 5.10.
D'oh! Had I read the article again instead of just jumping in to the comments, I would have seen that it has been edited to reflect the release of version 3. However, because of the SmartGroups problems, no-one appears to have commented on my problem with the upgrade to 5.11 - when setting the mouse speed using configure, the pointer freezes on clicking on "Set".
I've not seen your post on SmartGroups yet. Are you using HID though? I get the same problem here, but hitting F12 and then *RMReinit USBHID sets the mouse pointer free again, so it could be an incompatibility (I think HID has suffered from problems with new ROM upgrades in the past, but a new version was always been released very quickly to resolve it).
I've got !HID version 0.36 , RISCOS5.11 Rlse3 and ROL's Toolbox items installed and I've just changed the mouse speed and it works OK. I have Mouse type set to Alternative as suggested when I had previous problems.
