I happen to have been caught out by this. I tried the earliest alphas but they were not very usable on 5:4 monitors. A few days ago I looked again and found that all alpha distros were withdrawn with the implication that they may not have been lawful.sassquad wrote:Just thought I'd update you (if you didn't already know) from the thread on RISC OS Open (link below), that the RISC OS distro for the Raspberry Pi has now been frozen, ready for distribution.

Slightly unrelated, but: Now that the OpenGL ES glue code is published, I wonder if someone *could* implement an OpenGL 2 or OpenGL ES library on RISC OS with reasonable effort. I know there's Mesa, so it's only about a driver for the GPU, right?AlArenal wrote:The graphics acceleration could be done by using OpenGL ES which is fully accelerated by the GPU using one of the Pi's Linux releases. I'm not sure if it is / can be accelerated for RISC OS, too.
