    Articles: RISC OS 5.18 released

    Friday, March 02, 2012 - 01:03 PM, (7356 Reads)

    RISC OS Open have announced the release of their latest stable release of RISC OS, version 5.18 to be exact. This shiny new update features no less than 340 improvements since the last official release and has been vetted by Castle Technology for the Iyonix PC and RComp for their ARMini. The new ROM image should be able to upgrade all versions of RISC OS from version 5.07 or later and is provided with a flash programming tool (which also takes a backup of the previous version just incase you wish to go back).

    The operating system now supports hardware CMOS memory fitted on a carrier board plugged into one of the headers on the motherboard, this permits saving of common configuration settings which will be retained when the power is off. CMOS memory carrier boards are available now from the ROOL store and are suitable for use on the original Beagleboard, Beagleboard xM, and Pandaboard. As the ROM now includes the SharedSound mixing software, some of the module location numbers have changed. Because the *UNPLUG settings only remember the module location numbers you may need to review any unplugged modules after the upgrade to ensure the desired ones are unplugged, and that crucial modules are not left unplugged by mistake. Steve Revill of RISC OS Open discussed the update in a press release, “This software is subject to continual improvement and work has already commenced on RISC OS 5.19! Using the convention of even numbers for stable editions and odd numbers for development editions, users can feedback any issues seen to make it into the next version.” You can download RISC OS 5.18 free of charge from RISC OS Open's website. Information regarding installing the new release on the ARMini, Iyonix and BeagleBoard can also be found on their website.
