This is excellent news.

The fact that RO 5 is a significant downgrade from select (mostly) is not important.

What is important is that new RISC OS kit is possible.

Hopefully the way things will develop is that ROL will make RO6 use the same HAL as RO5. This would then give the potential for any suitable hardware to run RISC OS 5 for free or upgrade to RISC OS 6 for a fee.
