I haven't had chance to evaluate this version yet, but there is considerable scope for improvement of the SCL in an open source version, which would immediately benefit a huge number of applications. For example the UnixLib implementation of some of the stdio functions such as sprintf are far more efficient than either RISC OS SCL, and recent work on utilising the XScale's Application Accelerator engine could be used to drastically speed up large memcpy and memset operations.
