The RISC OS Projects Initiative: The list growsBy Chris Williams. Published: 16th Apr 00:38:19 | Permalink | Printable
Peter Naulls, the man behind RISC OS guavac, various unix ports and the RISC OS Slang Dictionary, has announced the start of the RISC OS Projects Initiative. According to the project's site, "the basic idea is to highlight programs or projects which RISC OS really could do with, or those that might need a helping hand."
"The projects span a broad range of effort and ability required - from a few hours to many months", explains Peter in an email to drobe. "Some are even non-programming, so perhaps there's something for everyone. All these projects I believe are possible, and if you need help getting started I can suggest solutions."
Various open-source projects are listed, ranging from applications such as a network monitor all the way to the gnumeric spreadsheet package.
17th April Update: New items making their way into the project list include !Paint 2, an internet Chat Client and a configuration utility for !Director. Whether you're a programmer or a user with ideas, the RISC OS Projects Initiative is very interesting to say the least.
