South West show newsBy Chris Williams. Published: 28th Feb 2004, 20:08:46 | Permalink | Printable
RISC OS goings on in the West CountryThe RISC OS South West show has been and gone and while we wait for our spies to return to base with their completed show report assignments, here's a concise round up of news that emerged in time for today's event.
The Aemulor team have unveiled their 26bit emulator package Aemulor Pro, demonstrating it for the first time at today's show. Over Aemulor, Aemulor Pro supports 26bit sound code and filing systems amongst other goodies. Future versions of Aemulor Pro should hopefully include VIDC emulation and JIT compilation.
Peter Naulls, of the Unix Porting Project has been working with LibSDL port meister Alan Buckley on the ChoX11 library, bringing X11 based software closer to RISC OS - for an example, see the RDesktop port. Peter, a drobe.co.uk editor, demonstrated his work at today's show.
Whilst nursing a stinging hangover, I had the pleasure of speaking to show organiser John Stonier via mobile phone. He admitted he was in a great mood as the show had proven to be a success. The show apparently got off to a slow start, but as the afternoon arrived, the event began to fill with punters - John estimated that around 200 to 300 visitors had been through the doors by about 2pm.
Also, not at all related to this weekend's show but worth a mention anyway: we've been hearing good things about NetSurf recently, such as the drawfile export and fancy website history GUI.
Went to the show? Tell us about it.
