R-Comp will be bringing a new version of PiFi to the London Show, which takes place tomorrow. The software allows you to re-purpose a spare WiFi-enabled Raspberry Pi as an adapter for a RISC OS computer – or, if connected to a hub, a number of systems. The headline feature of version 3 of the software is that it now includes software that runs in the RISC OS desktop to configure the Pi, rather than having to do it via NetSurf.

Available for £29.99 at the show, PiFi 3 is supplied as a micro-SD card ready for use in a Pi – all you need to find is a spare one to use for the purpose!

R-Comp have put out a press release about what they’ll have at tomorrow’s Wakefield Show – and they say there will be the usual array of software releases, such as the newly announced Genealogy 1.80, and Fireworkz 2.20 (a fiver and your disc for the old version gets you the new), the latest updates to SafeStore, and more.

They will also have PiFi v2. PiFi is the product that allows you to use a handy spare Raspberry Pi (running Linux) into a WiFi bridge of sorts for another RISC OS computer. One of the benefits of version 2 is that instead of configuring it with your web browser, you’ll actually be able to configure it with a RISC OS application designed for the purpose – and it sounds as if it can now use the built-in WiFi of the Raspbery Pi 3 if that’s the version of Pi you use it with.

There was a lot more in the press release, but being sent late last night, there’s not enough time spare here in the RISCOSitory bunker to do it justice – just come to the show!

It has been a massive seven weeks since this year’s Wakefield Show – so if you’ve turned a rather unsightly colour as a result of holding your breath waiting for the RISCOSitory show report, it’s now time to breathe normally again and let your normal colour return! Continue reading »
