RISC OS Open Update
Rob Sprowson
Monday 16th September 2019, 7:45pm

In a slight change to the advertised programme(*), Rob Sprowson will be talking on behalf of ROOL to update us on what they have been up to in the past year.

Since the successful bounty matching scheme at the end of last year, a number of bounties have been worked on and new ones opened, including important steps to bring the network stack into the 21st century.

The recent arrival of the Raspberry Pi 4 has also caused a number of issues, as its new USB and network controllers are not supported by RISC OS. Rob will give more details and report on progress to update RO to fully support the Pi4.

(*) Rob had hoped to be talking about a new Elesar product, but a flaw in one of the chips used has delayed it. If a fix/workaround can be found then he may still be able to tell us some info.
