The Icon Bar: News and features: Acorn port of Acorn imminent
 

Acorn port of Acorn imminent

Posted by Trevor Johnson on 00:10, 1/4/2014 | ,
 
RISC OS 5 users seeking alternatives to Paint may be wondering how the enhancements to GraphicsV will affect them.
 
In May 2013 Acorn v.4 for the Mac was released (this one slipped under the radar last year). This popular package supports alpha masking and has been "available for all" since August 2013.
 
We've recently been contacted by a long-time user who is "on the verge" of releasing a port of the bitmap Acorn application to the former-Acorn platform. The user says that outstanding matters are now purely administrative, and that an announcement can be made at the forthcoming Wakefield Acorn & RISC OS Show 2014.
 
We are witnessing exciting times in the RISC OS marketplace, although it is not clear whether the Acorn port of Acorn will benefit from quite the same level of developer attention as another well-established vector graphics package.
 
Some of those loose ends which are being tidied up:
  1. Sprites11
  2. PlingStore integration (demo version)
  3. SDFS compatibility testing
  4. Filing system improvements (step 2)
  5. Filing system improvements (various)
So, what will you do with your Acorn?
