Developers to discuss new Style GuidePublished: 22nd Dec 2006, 13:22:10 | Permalink | Printable
Darling, that desktop is so 1993A new mailing list and wiki page have been set up in a bid to update the RISC OS Style Guide. The book, originally published by Acorn, shows developers how to design their applications so that they fit in with the rest of the RISC OS desktop - although some now say the guide is stuck in the 1990s, and a more modern reference should be drawn up. It's hoped a later revision will take into account desktop enhancements and updates provided by RISC OS Select and RISC OS 5.
The discussion list was created by Vince Hudd, and the wiki page is presently empty, although anyone can login and edit it. The project is unofficial, and separate to Castle and RISCOS Ltd's efforts to document the operating system.
Vince said: "This mailing list is open for everyone, users and developers, for discussion relating to the RISC OS Style Guide, pros and cons, suggestions for improvement, and so on.
"The wiki page only contains an introductory paragraph at present, but I hope that in time, and following discussions on the above mailing list, it will evolve into an up to date Style Guide."
