I will not be doing anything related to touch screens. RISC OS is a desktop OS, and I wish to keep it that way.
I have been delayed by life in getting much done. Though now I again have more time to play, so we will see where things go.
The multi core stuff is more of a chalenge than expected do to the way RISC OS does things with memory (in many areas, more than expected).
Though I am still playing with splitting up the RISC OS module in RISC OS, aka the Kernel. That is something I feel is way behind the curve.
I am thinking that RISC OS 3.8 may be a better starting point in some ways, though I have not yet gotten around to checking out the oldest sources from ROOL to see how much would be needed to get RISC OS 3.8 to run native on the RPi.
I have also added a project for the developers out there. I am working on a simple Recursive decent C compiler that is intended to be source compatible with Norcroft C on RISC OS, thus allowing people to compile the old sources without worrying about the commercial compiler (please still buy norcroft C from ROOL, it is worth it), something is needed for those that can not afford the high price of 40 pounds.
To this I am also adding a Pascal compiler, Assembler, BASIC V compiler, linker, librarian, and a few other tools.
All of the tools I am working on creating will only deal with AOF, ALF, AIF, Module, and Raw Binary formats. RISC OS is NOT a n*x, so has no place for ELF (we already have a good linking format, and a better executable format).
I do not know how long it will take me to do this, though it is my primary hobby time until done. Other than finnishing up the Assembly tutorials, and tripple checking all for errors (all 255 of them).
