Meanwhile, I have yet to get the final Wakefield Show video finished and uploaded!

ROUGOL member Leo White, who records the theatre talks at the London Show, has now uploaded the recordings of this year’s talks to YouTube. In alphabetical order:

There is now less than a week to go until this year’s London Show – it takes place next Saturday, 28th October – and as well as the extensive line up of exhibitors, there is now a very full theatre programme.

When he emailed exhibitors a week ago, ROUGOL‘s Bryan Hogan listed the main five talks, and asked if anyone would care to give short snappy talks of five to ten minutes – and it looks like that request has been answered. In alphabetical order, that line-up in full is: BBC Media Preservation, CJE Micro’s, MW Software, R-Comp, RISC OS Developments Ltd, RISC OS Open Ltd, Sine Nomine Software with RISCOSbits, and VideoNuLA.

Because while no news is good news, some news is better. Or something.

Keen eyed readers of RISCOSitory will no doubt have noticed that for the last couple of months they have in fact not been keen eyed readers of RISCOSitory at all. As is sometimes the case, the workload here at the Soft Rock Software office became somewhat hectic for a while – moreso, I think, than it’s ever been before – leaving no time for any updates to the site.

And to cap that, a nasty bout of flu has meant most of the Christmas holiday so far has been spent wrapped up in bed with either the TV on, or a good book open – but now I feel I can sit at the computer long enough to compile the news that has been missed into a final snippets post for 2014!

Bridge? What bridge?

Sine Nomine Software’s Hilary Phillips has announced a new version of RiscOSM. Version 1.07 allows the user to save the location under the mouse pointer, whereas previously the saved position was the middle of the map, and also fixes a few issues that could previously cause RiscOSM to either crash, or omit features from the map.

Announcement from Hilary Phillips, 11th July, 2014.

Firstly, just to say that Sine Nomine Software will unfortunately not be attending the MUG Show this year: the previous information circulated was the result of a misunderstanding.

We are pleased to announce a new release of RiscOSM, the vector mapping software based on OpenStreetMap data. Continue reading »

The previous release of the software, version 1.06, was to remove two puzzles that were subject to a complaint of trademark infringement, and to add a new one in the form of TetraCross, in which the player is presented with four interlocking crosses of four cells each, with nine cells in total, into which the digits from 1 to 9 need to be placed, with the sum of the four cells for each cross totalling the value presented in its centre.
