Great news that RISC OS 5.12 is out!

I'm a bit surprised (and unhappy) that there is no discount at all (not even a small one) for the users who paid 30 UKP for USB2 - and be it a discount available for a short period of time only.

Since I never had any problems with my nVidia card and have no plans to upgrade it and have USB2 I do wonder what benefits RISC OS 5.12 offers apart from an a bit shorter boot time due to USB2 now being in ROM. Thus some more info about the benefits in 5.12 and the ones on the list for future free ROM upgrades would make it easier for me and probably others too to part with 69 UKP now instead of waiting what Castle has on the list.

Gee, why am I not surprised that you can't buy online with an IYONIX pc considereing what we have as http-viewers (most of them I'd not really want to call a web browser) for RISC OS. Well perhaps NetSurf might be capable - anybody try yet?

    Didn't make to the South East 2008 show in Guildford this year? Not to worry, because on top of the usual Drobe coverage, you can now watch videos of the presentations made by RISC OS Open and RISC OS Ltd staff at the event. Recorded live at the show, the videos, in which products and projects are talked up by developers to punters, also include question and answer sessions from the floor.
