BBC BASIC for Raspbian minor update

Sun Sep 03, 2017 10:45 am

I have updated BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 (Raspberry Pi edition) to v0.18b to address concerns about the speed of the 'insert line' and 'delete line' operations in the SDLIDE editor. At the same time I have revised the installation instructions to reflect the fact that enabling the 'experimental' (VC4) GL driver is now essential, because of the dramatically reduced performance of the Mesa software driver in Raspbian Stretch compared with Jessie. I have also added instructions for creating a desktop shortcut to BBC BASIC.
