If you need more detailed information about a small selection of Wakefield Show exhibitors and their wares than is provided in Mark Stephens’ show report and pictures on the Icon Bar website, but can’t wait for the usual RISCOSitory show report and videos, Ruth Gunstone has stepped in to fill in the gap. Ruth is a member of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club and, along with Peter Richmond, looks after the show theatre – and has now uploaded her recordings of the various talks to Youtube:
And it has found a new home… in Bristol!
With the most recent Southwest Show having taken place in February, the organisers revealed the date of the 2019 event at the time of the even more recent Wakefield Show last weekend. The date of the next Southwest show will be on 16th February, 2019, so please mark that date in your diaries now.
The date of the next show isn’t the only thing to be revealed, though. The RISC OS Southwest Show 2019 will be taking place in a different venue – the Arnos Manor Hotel in Bristol – with much better links for people coming by both public and private transport alike.
And you thought I was slow putting my videos online!
Ruth Gunstone is one of the duo that handles the theatre at the annual Wakefield Show, along with Peter Richmond, and she has also made video recordings of the talks for the last couple of years. Her recordings from last year’s show are now online for your viewing pleasure – just in time for this year’s show! The videos in question are:
- Steve Revill, RISC OS Open Ltd
- Andrew Rawnsley, R-Comp
- Chris Evans, CJE Micro’s and 4D
- Mystery announcement (aka Richard Brown, RISC OS Developments Ltd)
- Matthew Phillips, Sine Nomine
Communication sometimes leaves links incomplete – but this new version should help!
This year’s Wakefield Show, which takes place on Saturday, 21st April – a couple of days time – will see the release of a brand new version of Messenger Pro, which now gains a big, shiny ‘8’ on the end of its name to replace the old, dusty ‘7’.
R-Comp released version 7 of the email and news client some three years ago, and – building on the work done to NetFetch, bringing that up to version 5 – with this major release an emphasis has been placed on both security, and compatibility with other platforms.
With the last couple of months having been somewhat busy here in the bunker, I’ve not yet had time to write a Southwest Show report – indeed, it is only just over a week ago that I was finally able to sit down and watch the four talks given at the show, which I was able to capture with my video camera on the day.
Following that, I was able to devote some time over the Easter weekend to doing a little editing work on them, before uploading the results to YouTube – and that’s now done, so here they are:

We’re pleased to announce the release of ARMX6 OS Update 7. It is now available for download by ARMX6 owners from the usual ARMX6 users’ download site.
This release combines several strands of development, and we hope there’s something for everyone in OS update 7:
