Keeping you informed [Updated 22nd February - Kaffe for RISC OS]

More updates for you to peruse. http://www.chocky.org/ and http://www.riscos.info/ have been updated with information and downloads. Here are the highlights:

New version of lcc

lcc, the easy to use lightweight C compiler has been upated to the latest version, 4.2. It's also been upgraded to 32-bit (and to produce 32-bit code) and throwback support has been added.

You can download it on the new lcc page.

The RISC OS Browser Issue

The Browser Issue document has been updated to keep track of browser status in the RISC OS world.

RISC OS and 32-bit

This document too, has been updated with current information in case you were still confused about the change to 32-bit.


DeskLib continues to receive regular updates, and there are various test versions you can download to try new features and bug fixes.

Finally, don't forget to regularly check the Unix Porting Project ChangeLog to see what's been newly ported or updated. There may be a few surprises in the near future.

[22nd February 2002]

Following the ChangeLog link above, you can now download a test version of Kaffe for RISC OS, a free Java Virtual Machine. This has a long way to go, but will run simple programs.

If Chocky could get ICQ2Go ([link]) to run, my hero worshipping would double (and after FreeCiv it's already sky high)... -- Gavin Smith, Carrickfergus

Peter, do you have plans to make more of your software run natively? (ie: Double click on the icon and away it goes) Most of it seems to require RiscX or something. Cheers!

That's a rather pointless question. There's 50 programs you get from my site right NOW. No deposit is needed.
