The Icon Bar Message Updates Technology news and views Lua and RISC OS http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12520&page=1#124303 RiscLua has been available for RISC OS since 2002. You can get two versions from my website http://www.wra1th.plus.com/riscos.html :RiscLua 5 for earlier platforms that do not have VFP and RiscLua 7 for those that do. I only have an Rpi3, so I need feeedback on how they perform elsewhere. State of RISC OS software http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12518&page=1#124301 I fear the answer is "nothing really changed". ArtWorks, TechWriter and Ovation Pro are still developed. Zap and StrongEd both alive and well. FTPc still the only FTP client. NetSurf still the only (native) browser. If you need to print, use PostScript or PDF. If you need to scan...good luck finding a driver. RiscOSM continues to expand its horizons http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12516&page=1#124300 RiscOSM is excellent and I cannot recommend it highly enough, whether for plotting distances, working out routes for walks or cycle rides or just getting map info on not-yet-visited places. The contour lines are invaluable too. State of RISC OS software http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12518&page=1#124299 It's mixed bag I think, I found the pCloud client by Elesar to be a massive boon for me, it really makes using RISC OS alongside Windows and Mac much more viable. State of RISC OS software http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12518&page=1#124298 Greetings all. Getting started with Bash on RISC OS http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12481&page=1#124297 On RO 5.24 on an Rpi3, running Bash just locks everything up. Geminus http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12508&page=1#124296 I never told this. In fact, I would prefer to have a commercial solution for my acceleration / dual head needs. I use RISC OS as my main OS, so I can't really wait for RISC OS 5.38 . A new monitor for my RISC OS and Mac systems http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12491&page=1#124295 I would (and have here http://riscosblog.huber-net.de/2018/03/raspberry-pi-3-b-4k-und-risc-os/) recommend the iiyama G-MASTER GB2888UHSU-B1, which is a 4K 28" screen with a lot of inputs and a very low price, currently less than 400. Geminus http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12508&page=1#124294 Maybe those secretive RISC OS lovers at RISC OS Developments could fund you to do that work. A rising tide floating all boats, etc. Geminus http://iconbar.com/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12508&page=1#124293 Absolutely agree. We would have missed out in all these goodies you have served up for us.
