RPCEmu reaches release 0.9.4

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:27, 4/1/2022 | ,
 
RPCEmu is a really important piece of software to me because it allows me to turn my laptop into a RISC OS machine when I am away from home. It provides an almost complete RISC OS machine under emulation for Linux, Mac and Windows. It can run the latest RISC OS 5.28 as well as 'classic' versions. There are several Easy-Start bundles with all you need to setup RPCEmu for RISC OS. The website states the software is alpha quality, but I have found it very stable in daily use.

Posted by Mark Stephens on 19:30, 10/12/2021 | ,
 
RISCOSbits have decided we need a special weekend day for RISC OS computers which we will call 'Stonking Saturday' (quite a conservative choice of name from them) and they have a special deal for just this day.
