Three RISC OS Show dates for your 2022 diary http://www.iconbar.co.uk/comments/rss/news1749.html We are lucky enough to have 3 RISC OS Shows to look forward to in 2022.

RPCEmu reaches release 0.9.4 http://www.iconbar.co.uk/comments/rss/news1742.html 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.
