"The company [ROL] appears to have abandoned plans to maintain two versions of RISC OS 4, namely a 26bit version for RiscPC class machines and a 32bit version for future platforms, and instead focused on a 32bit only stream."

This is pretty significant and I believe the right step forward, as I have expressed a couple of times before. It also puts more pressure on (active) users of legacy (Acorn, etc.) hardware to upgrade to modern 32 bit machines. Neil Spellings has also stated a few times that a version of Aemulor can (or will) be developed for users needing 26 bit compatibility.
