Popular Internet software to be developed by RISCOS Ltd.Published: 2nd May 09:38:25 | Permalink | Printable
RISCOS Ltd. has announced that it has reached an agreement with ANT Limited to take over sales, development and support of the company's popular RISC OS Internet Suite.
The software, which was once regarded as one of the flagship applications for RISC OS computers, has not been supported by ANT in recent years. It is thought that the web browser, Fresco, is the only part of the software being actively developed for the interactive television market.
As reported on Drobe, Paul Vigay took over support of the software as a personal enterprise last December when its previous retailers, ArgoNet, left RISC OS users without customer support.
RISCOS Ltd.'s new software will be renamed the RISC OS Internet Suite and further developments of the software will be included in RISC OS itself. Interestingly ANT have remained the sole developers of Fresco and so RISC OS users will have to be reliant on ANT for updates. Fresco may have been developed for other customers but so far improvements in the desktop version have been scarce.

Richard Ashbery, who used ArtWorks and Photodesk to create his images, showed off patterns and colourful illustrations to punters, who told him his work made a change from the oils and watercolour masterpieces usually exhibited.
