On Is there a way out of RISC OS version number hell?:

Why not just use 3 extra bits in the 32 bit compatibility flag. eg bit 1234 0000=ROL 0001=ROL 32 bit 0010=CTL 0011=CTL 32 bit 0100=ANOTHER 0101=ANOTHER 32 bit ETC. This gives 8 possible company slots. Or even use more and include target platform/hardware.

On RISC OS 5 source code release revealed:

Would this not mean ROL could release the same components (as they tried with !Printers) and the bug fixes/improvements could be itegrated into a combined source ?

On Microdigital boss turns makeover gardener:


The main reason to find David/David is to see if the design files for the programmable parts of the Omega would be released. These are needed if any further development/bug fixes are to take place. One component in particular is totaly "uncrackable". Also it would make the process of reflashing dead motherboards simpler to achive, as there are people who have systems that are unusable at present.
