Compared to the various major new features in Select 1 (DHCP, Joliet in CDFS, Multi User Boot), Select 2 (mouse wheel support, CMYK sprites, Image File Renderer) and Select 3 (global text Cut&Paste, filer keyboard control, alpha sprites, filter thumbnailing with the IFR, ZeroConf networking, trashcan), progress seems to be very slow. HALing and 32bitting the OS was certainly a lot of work, but why the many RiscPC and emulator RISC OS owning people had to pay for it, I don't know. Having read through all the available material regarding RISC OS Six, I am still not sure which major feature was added between Select 3/Adjust and the latest 6.12 (Select 5) apart from upping the version number. ROLs website is really a bad joke.
