NEXT MEETING                

DATE:   Monday 18th June 2018
(ROUGOL meets on the third monday of each month)
SUBJECT:   RPCemu
PRESENTER:   Matthew and Peter Howkins
TIME:   7:45pm (although lots of ROUGOL members are usually there - eating curry - from about 6pm!)
VENUE:   Upstairs in the restaurant at The Blue Eyed Maid public house, 173 Borough High St, SE1 1HR.

RPCemu is the free, open source, RiscPC emulator available for use on Windows and Linux systems. Originally developed by Sarah Walker, it has been maintained by brothers Matthew and Peter Howkins for almost 10 years now.

This year saw the release of version 0.9.0. Despite the small change in version number, this is a very significant release that has seen some major "under the hood" changes. Chief among those is the move away from using the old unsupported Allegro4 graphics/sound library to using Qt5. This enables the Windows and Linux versions to share a common and much improved user interface, reducing the support overhead.

Matthew and Peter will be talking about those changes, as well as the other improvements to the ARM and hardware emulation that have enabled RPCemu to support all versions of RISC OS from 3.50 to 6.20, and even the unreleased Phoebe version 3.80!

The usual arrangements

Admittance is free and everyone is welcome. All meetings benefit from video projection, so everyone should have a great view.

The Blue Eyed Maid is easily accessible by public transport from in and around London and the south east, and serves a wide range of hot and cold food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

To be informed about future meetings, please join the mailing list. Everyone on the mailing list will be kept informed of these and other ROUGOL initiatives.
