I have had my Iyonix for nearly 2 years, during which time I have received over 40 upgrades from Castle (excluding betas). If I don't subscribe to Select32, will I stop getting updates to RISC OS 5? When?
I have suscribed to Select(26) since it started and received 3 releases and 1 set of ROMs which I had to buy on top of my subscriptions. OK, the Select releases contained a lot more change that 1 of Castle's upgrades, but you have to wait a long time between releases for bugs to be fixed. besides my RPC is now shut down most of the time so I am not sure I need Select26 any longer.
If very few of us subscribe to Select32, does that mean no more development of RISCOS 5? Does it mean no more development of 32bit RISC OS in any form?
Given that in the past ROD have said a lot of the changes are under the bonnet in Select26 and that prevented providing the visible bits (Paint, Daw, Edit etc) for RISC OS 5, just how easy is to provide partial upgrades vias softloaded modules before a softloaded Select32 for Iyonix is available?
I would relly like to see a roadmap from ROD for RISC OS, the 26 bit and 32 bit5 select streams and RISC OS 5, what comes together when, what new developments are expected and what releases are planned. I am not asking for an exact list of developments for each release with exact shipment dates, rather a prioritised list of planned developments and which quater/year they are penciled in for. Other companies do this, why can't ROD?
