    We've just learned the news that the much anticipated Postscript 3 Printer Driver being worked on by star coders John Tytgat & Martin W√ľrthner is currently in beta testing and close to release.


    Whilst reading various forums recently I noticed that people are still thirsty for news and articles on the various RISC OS outlets. There also seems to be some concern that with Drobe closing that there's no alternative to post your own articles or news items.


    A few hours after Draw Print version 1.15, the next update in the series was up and available for free download for anyone who may wish to use it. It can be downloaded from

    Over the years of the RISC OS Ltd. Select scheme, I've generally been impressed by the various improvements and speedups along the way and although I don't use every single feature, long gone are the days when I could just sit down and use older versions of RISC OS.

    The show did go on 6903 Reads news

    This is just a brief summary of the recent RISC OS show in Guildford for those who didn't make it in person but are thirsty for news.

    Posted by StevePotts on Sunday, October 19, 2008 Read full article: 'The show did go on'   

    Next Saturday is the RISC OS South East Show, having become a regular slot in the RISC OS callendar, the show is at the usual venue of Guildford College and we can look forward to a packed event. The opening times are 18th October 10am - 4pm. Despite the recent news about Castle / Iyonix Ltd withdrawing from the market, there is still much to be positive about. This is a chance for RISC OS users, past and present, to re-unite with one common goal - the progression of RISC OS and its applications and accessories.


    We've heard that in a recent email, Jack Lillingston of Iyonix Ltd and Castle Technologies Ltd. has announced that the Iyonix PC is to be no longer available for ordering from 30th September 2008 (only a few days from time of writing).  Iyonix Ltd (formed as a separate division by Castle to sell the hardware) will cease trading once existing stocks of hardware and accessories are exhausted.  There are apparently very limited stocks available, that can be supplied on a first come, first served basis until the 30th.
