    Following the opening of Zure Open ( http://www.zurenet.co.uk ) I felt the next best thing to do to tie in with the site is to create a news site reporting on the latest developments of open source projects in the RISC OS community.

    This may or may not be moved to Zure Net to tie in with the site that is currently in development.

    If you would like to contribute to RISC OS Open Source News (ROOSN) please contact at the following address: zure [at] carter dot mihopa dot net.

    Best Regards
    Michael Carter, Zure Open

    I am pleased to announced the launch of a new web portal to support and enhance the RISC OS community.

    The portal is named RONews and is aimed at keeping RISC OS users up to date with the goings on in the RISC OS world.

    We also do recommend you check other portals such as Drobe, MyRISCOS, PlanetRISCOS and a whole host of others as we might have missed a bit of news or don't have time to write about it.

    The site will soon have a downloads section with all of the latest free software available from here.

    Old site - http://www.ronews.co.nr

    The much anticipated 277 Issue of Qercus Magazine has been released and is now being sent out to subscribers.

    We at myriscos have received the following details from John Cartmell:

    Issue 277 of Qercus has been much delayed and we apologise for the long gap in production of the magazine. Reasons for the break in publication have been production and personal problems (illness). We will be making use of our experience of the former in future articles about publishing from RISC OS. A new organisation here will ensure that future personal problems won't leave readers waiting for their copies of Qercus.

    A new version of GCCSDK is now ready for download from: http://www.riscos.info/index.php/GCCSDK_Releases#GCCSDK_GCC_3.4.6_Release_2

    In this new version:
    * Correction of Release 1 filename handling regression with GCC.
    * Enabling of throwback for C preprocessor.
    * Pass gcc include paths through to 'as' assembler. There are known limitations on the current assembler include path support concerning Unix and RISC OS style pathname syntax so we recommend using path variables when you want to specify assembler include directories.
    * Allow suffix swapping in its include filenames and adding hdr/Hdr suffixes to its default suffix swap list. This allows RISC OS and cross compilation of same assembler sources which include OSLib headers.
    * No longer supporting GCC @ comments. This is no longer needed for the GCCSDK build procedure and allows the @ as built-in variable by default i.e. without having to resort to the -objasm option.
    * Assembler now supports all ARMv5E (XScale) instructions (i.e. not including the Thumb instructions).
    * Fixed several miss-assemblings or unsupported corner cases: LFMFD, LDC/STC, PLD, LDR/STR(H,SH,SB), etc.
    * Added testcases for future regression tests.
    * Replacing AOF object in ALF file didn't work.
    * Several code fixes improving its stability.
    * Fix for C++ using SharedCLibrary. Examples Makefile updated to build hello world examples in different ways.
    * Various documentation updates.
    And lots more!

    Weave 2.0 Update 4622 Reads worldwideweb
    Gavin Wraith has updated his great application, Weave.

    What is weave?
    Taken from Gavin's homepage "Weave is a language for describing tagged text and, in particular, webpages. Why not use HTML? Because it has no provision for variables or functions. It has no abstraction facilities. By contrast Weave can be used as simply as HTML, but gives you a lot more descriptive power. You can create a whole website with a single Weave script. Alternatively you can split a website description up among various Weave scripts, each specialised for different aspects, e.g. content versus page furniture, site structure from the visual aspects of the navigation furniture, and so on. Objects common to more than one page need never be duplicated. In a word, Weave is a lot more powerful and abstract than HTML."
