A new version of multi-platform emulator RPCEmu has been released.

Version 0.9.1 of the software, which allows classic Acorn hardware such as the RiscPC and A7000 to be emulated on Windows and Linux, amongst others, includes a number of changes – from new features, such as the ability to take screenshots from a menu, to networking improvements (leading to fewer steps needed from within RISC OS to configure networking).

CJE Micro’s and 4D will once again be exhibiting at the London Show and expect to have plenty of goodies on display, such as small HDMI monitors, the pi-topRO 2 Pi-based laptop, the 4D/Simon Inns Econet Clock, and a new IDE Podule (details of which to be announced RSN), and much more.

Having first demonstrated it at this year’s Southwest Show, R-Comp Interactive has now released an upgrade to allow computers based around the i.MX6 CPU/GPU to benefit from hardware graphics acceleration. With it running, scrolling through documents is much faster, redraw is greatly improved when moving windows around, and so on.

Priced at £29.99, the upgrade is available via !Store (look for “ARMX6 Turbo Graphics”) or, if you’d prefer, get in touch with R-Comp on 01925 755 043 to  purchase it over the phone, in which case the (quite small) module will be sent to you by email.
