    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.
