  • NEW! [27th Oct 2008] Latest Intel chips still can't match ARM for power saving - Intel issued a "correction" Thursday regarding comments one of its executives made earlier this week slamming the iPhone as incapable of working correctly with the internet.
    Among other things, the executives accused ARM chips of being unable to "handle the internet" and singled out the iPhone as an example of a smart phone that could be really great if it used one of Intel's low-power x86 architecture processors, known as Atom.

With a development version to be demonstrated at the forthcoming RISC OS SE Show, WebAnim8r is a powerful and comprehensive application for creating animations and graphics suitable for including on websites and presentations.

Archive 24:6 reviewed
Archive 24:6 has now been sent out to subscribers (in a nice biodegradable poly bag). This is a landmark issue in a number of ways. With the sad death of Jim Nagel earlier this year, the edition has been finished off by Jim's sons as a tribute to Jim. So this is the last Nagel edited edition and the last magazine in Volume 24.
RISC OS interview with Gavin Smith
Archive magazine has a new editor. We tracked down Gavin Smith to find out more about him and his plans...
Archive 24:6 is 'in the post' and free to read online
Archive 24:6 is now on its way to subscribers. It looks like a great last issue from the Nagel team, with 60 packed pages in colour!

RISC OS Open

Charting our way
As countries around the world grapple with the COVID-19, many people will currently be required to stay indoors, or to change their work patterns and switch to video conferencing. Drinking more? Exercising less? It certainly feels like an interesting time to see what the data says about what’s happening in our community.Take a look with us at various metrics from ROOL’s data banks for the period January to April, to see how things looked heading into the “new normal”.
COVID-19 update
As I’m sure you are all aware, RISC OS Open places our user and developer community at the very top of our list of priorities. In the light of the current pandemic and the very latest advice from the UK Government, we find ourselves in a position of seeing no alternative but to withdraw from all face-to-face social engagements, such as user group meetings and shows, including the up-coming Wakefield Show.
Three interesting topics for our march towards April
With the added productivity of our bonus leap day behind us, there is still a lot to look forward to in the next couple of months. For example:Setting off towards our new RISC OS 5.28 stable releaseJourneying to Wakefield, UK for the 25th WROCC show on 18th AprilReaching new heights of bounty goodness
New Desktop Development Environment reaches out
Last year’s London show saw the snappily titled DDE29 becoming generally available.Packing in some 300 changes, the main highlights are:Latest Norcroft C compilerCode generation now tailored to use ARMv6/v7/v8 extended instructions where possibleOptimisations to substitute selected code sequences with ARMv6/v7/v8 media instructions where possibleInline assembler updated to accept ARMv6/v7/v8 mnemonicsLiteral pool reductions where available and enabled through use of MOVW+MOVTNew intrinsic functions to get access to operations not normally accessible from CABC (the BASIC compiler) now supports hexadecimal entered in mixed caseRevised User Interface Toolbox and ABC manuals plus detailed change logs for all the provided toolsLibrary improvements to the TCP/IP library adds RFC2553 supporting functions, part of the TCP/IP bounty work getting ready for IPv6, and stronger type checking for all functions in the Toolbox libraryDDT (the desktop debugger) now uses the same disassembly engine as other tools, and can step the new instructions which the compiler emitsTechnical enhancements to AMU, CMHG, and ABC’s command line processing
ROOL at the RISC OS South West Show
After a (relatively) mild winter of hibernation, we’re pleased to announce that some of the ROOL team will be making our annual pilgrimage to Bristol for the RISC OS South West Show.
