[News] RISC OS Ponders Proper Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| "If this were to happen, it would open up the possibility of
| either community-based or commercial groups moving the OS to other

| and even phones are ubiquitous and many of these could, in theory,
| serve as a platform for running RISC OS..."



RISC OS 5.12 released with price tag

,----[ Quote ]
| A fortnight after announcing plans to share the RISC OS 5 source
| code, developers Castle have slapped a 69 quid price tag on their
| latest OS upgrade. The news has lead to some confusion over the
| future direction of the operating system, and fuelled concern
| that crucial components of RISC OS 5 will remain closed source
| as chargeable updates.


RISC OS 5 source code release revealed

,----[ Quote ]
| Castle and RISC OS Open Ltd have revealed their ambitious plan to release
| the source code of various RISC OS 5 components. Under a so-called
| 'shared source initiative', a phased release of RISC OS is promised to
| take place over the next few months - starting with applications
| including Paint, Edit, Draw, Configure, Unicode, the web browser Browse,
| and the printer manager. The Shared C Library and RISC OS build scripts
| will also be released, according to CTL and ROS Open.
