Chris wrote>"Castle recently sneaked out a quick note about its GraphicsV API. The text describes Castle's approach to abstracting its video drivers from the RISC OS 5 kernel, allowing the innards to remain ignorant of exactly how the display works just as long as the driver module sorts it all out. Expect the RISC OS 4 graphics abstraction API to be different."

When ROL get around to this yes, but in what ways will it differ from Castle's who knows? After all Castle do *publically publish* their API's but ROL don't(*). Pity really all this sort of stuff makes it difficult to support the various flavours of RISC OS that are extent.

(*) ROL generally only make API details available to Select subscribers
