Well I don't know what happened to my post but here goes again.
Well just as I was starting to feel positive along comes a dose of reality courtesy of ROL. No well this is positive news and we look forward to looking at the options to join forces and move RISC OS foward instead we get this an attributed comment along the lines of this changes nothing.
Where is the vision to say we look forward to jointly developing code to expand the ability of Unicode aand to add to Select. Well I'm within a whisker of saying forget it. I've purchased RISCOS4 more than once, been a Select subscriber and Foundation subscriber and even though I've had an Iyonix for 3 + years I've still subscribed to support the market for nil return. I might as well have saved the £250 and got an A9 because at least then I would have had something. No doubt I can expect a mention in the next ROL newsletter but sometimes you just have to say what you believe in and at this moment my belief in ROL and Select is at an all time low.
What should be NetSurf's priority? Development work on the open source NetSurf web browser project will once again be funded by Google as part of the internet giant's Summer of Code scheme. NetSurf has been accepted into this year's GSoC, which pays students to develop open source software during their holiday, under the guidance of a mentor. This year it's hoped budding engineers, who must first successfully apply for a place to work on the browser, will work on various improvements. What do you think the NetSurf team should be focusing development on? 29 comments, latest by adh1003 on 29/4/09 6:40PM. Published: 22 Mar 2009
