    Whilst reading various forums recently I noticed that people are still thirsty for news and articles on the various RISC OS outlets. There also seems to be some concern that with Drobe closing that there's no alternative to post your own articles or news items.


    Following on from our earlier article about myriscos, we'd like to highlight one of the features that's easy for everyone to use and provides a useful service back to the community...

    Due to the apparent dry spell with regard to RISC OS news, this short article is here to encourage any one whom produces RISC OS products, free or commercial, or any budding reporters / writers who've got something relevant to the RISC OS community to get involved.


    Midlands show debrief 5831 Reads collaboration

    Having returned from the Midlands show, I thought I'd just put up a very short rundown of what I saw and did.  I didn't go prepared to write a report and didn't even take a camera, as I had rather a lot of other stuff with me upon arrival, although less upon leaving - I know that doesn't sound right, but it was for good reason.

    Although dated a few days ago, today saw the publication of a Joint Press Release from RISCOS Ltd. and RISC OS Open Ltd. on the Comp.Sys.Acorn.Announce usenet group.  This press release talks about co-operaton between the two companies and sounds positive for the future of RISC OS development.


    RISC OS VNC Server 6610 Reads collaboration

    Whilst trawling the net for something else recently, I stumbled accross a newer version of Henrik Bjerregaard Pedersen's VNC server than I had not found before. Although Hernik originally produced it, others have taken the source code and improved things over time. For those not aware, VNC stands for Virtual Network Computer and is a technology available for remotely viewing another computer's screen and also optionally taking over its mouse and keyboard to perform tasks remotely as if you were actualy sat at the machine in question. VNC is truly multi-platform and is available for many operating systems, including RISC OS. The RISC OS version of the VNC server is not as polished as those for other platforms, but it is certainly functional. My main use for the server is to remotely control my Risc PC from my Windows laptop, from other rooms in the house.

    The RISC OS open source web browser has recently reached version 1.1 stable release.


    With the Wakefield show very nearly upon us, the usual pre-show announcements have begun to start flowing.

    Posted by StevePotts on Tuesday, May 15, 2007 Read full article: 'Wakefield Show approaches'   

    During a recent newsgroup discussion on comp.sys.acorn.apps entitled "Future of Risc OS" (sic), Theo Markettos suggested that people would probably already have information that they could share with the community via the WIKI which lives at and he posted a couple of links to the discussion.


    It's nearly that time of year again when we are treated to a RISC OS Show in the South West of England. John Stonier, supported by the Bristol Acorn Risc User Group and Wessex ARM User Groups, have again organised a show at the now familiar venue of the The Webbington Hotel in Loxton.


    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 -

    ICQ Update planned 4991 Reads collaboration
    From CSA.Announce:

    Maybe some people haven't noticed, but AcornICQ doesn't function well anymore. ICQ has been taken over by AOL and now they have changed the protocol drasticly. They don't support the old protocols fully. It's only possble to login and to send messages. All other functions won't work.

    So we (aICQ developers) have decided to recreate aICQ from scratch...

    Since we upgraded a couple of weeks back, the multi-lingual features of the site were temporarily disabled.

    We're now back running multi-lingually so far with the following languages:

  • English (default)
  • Dutch
  • French
  • German


    There's a new starter article in the Sections about experiences of Online Banking with RISC OS.

    Please post your experiences to help develop updates to the article.

    (My) RISC OS Glossary 4890 Reads collaboration
    The time has come to get the definitive RISC OS Glossary moving...

    • Heard a term that relates to RISC OS but you're not sure what it means?
    • Used a RISC OS term and had to explain it to someone else?
    • Invented a RISC OS term and want to give the definitive explanation?

    Then submit your terms/comments/interpretations with this article and we'll see how far it grows.

    FAQ help required 3336 Reads collaboration
    My RISC OS needs to develop to serve a wide range of RISC OS users, with that in mind, your help is needed to start writing a RISC OS Frequently Asked Questions list for users new to, or considering a move to, RISC OS.

    There is a new forum section started for this called 'RISC OS Newbies FAQ' so if you have ideas for the FAQ or questions/answers to post then head on over and contribute. In time, I would envisage the forum forming the core of the FAQ.

    My RISC OS needs a logo, it's well overdue!

    Here's the chance for you to get involved. The first submission is included here, thanks Ronny.

    We'd like you to comment and submit your own efforts. The winning logo will be used as the main logo for the default theme, other logos may be used in other themes (so there can be many winners!).

    What's the prize? Oh you mean apart form the smug satisfaction that you won and can gloat for years to come? Well, a mention on the site!

    The logos will probably also be used for link banners for use on your own sites.
