Moving to RPCEmu for RISC OS on my Mac

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:44, 13/3/2020 | ,
 
In a previous article I wrote about how the new version of MacOS would no longer run my current emulator. While there are some hacky work arounds for Virtual RISCPC, there is no indication of an update which will allow it to run on the new MacOS release.

NetFetch updated to 5.50

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:31, 21/6/2019 | ,
 
Continuing with our theme of recent updates, NetFetch has been updated by R-CompInfo.
 
The main new feature fo this release is to move unto the new AcornSSL module which allows for support for 'modern' SSL/TLS support. This has require a lot of internal changes to the way the software works. It is really nice to see examples of developers making use of the Bounty enhancements and encouraging for the future.
 
NetFetch also gets the ability to quick-fetch individual mailboxes.
 
The update is 15 pounds and available from R-Comp directly.

David Pilling Treasure Trove

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:02, 18/1/2019 | ,
 
If you are looking to learn about software, there is a treasure trove of source code and resources available on the Internet.
 
One of the more interesting resources is from David Pilling. He is something of a RISC OS legend (being behind OvationPro and many critical tools for RISC OS). His website lists his software and also includes several free utilities.
 
There is also an interesting section for 'retired' software here. Rather than just let the packages disappear, the source code is now available for all the ArcFax, Panorama, SparkFS and many other former commercial applications. Enjoy digging....
 
[Updated 18 January] Thanks to Sprow for pointing out SparkFS does not include source code
