A new version of RPCEmu was pushed out early last month, featuring two significant changes leading to its version number jumping from 0.8.15 to 0.9.0. Those changes – for which test versions have been available for a while – are the shift from the Allegro 4 library to the Qt5 library (which enabled Chris Gransden to build a version that runs on RISC OS), and the threading model now sees the GUI on a different thread to the actual machine emulation.

RPCEmu can be run on a number of platforms, and its aim is to emulate the hardware of a RiscPC, allowing suitable versions of RISC OS to be used on those platforms.
