This is shaping up to be an exciting development. It could still fail due to an unworkable license or a refusal to release the most important components but if this project can deliver what it promises, this could push RISCOS forward.
I'm glad that Castle are working on a restrictive license; it's a workable strategy as opposed to 'let's just give our products away'. Any commentary is purely speculative until we get a finished license and an actual release of code.
I agree with JohnB that Castle's proposed strategy offers benefits for all parties involved.
The ARM Club disbands after 18 years The ARM Club, which has organised shows and provided support and products to RISC OS users since 1990, has closed its doors and stopped publishing its Eureka magazine. Its committee members agreed to stop taking on new club members after membership figures went into free fall and no one was willing to help run the organisation. Archive has agreed to take on Eureka subscribers and their first issue, edition 21:11, is due to arrive in the post by Monday. 4 comments, latest by bucksboy on 9/12/08 6:32PM. Published: 6 Dec 2008
