VirtualAcorn are delighted to announce that two new VirtualAcorn products will be launched at the Wakefield 2006 Show. VirtualRPC-SA builds on the success of VirtualRPC-SE, it includes the industry standard RISC OS 4.02 operating system but includes StrongArm and Arm7500 processors, in addition to the Arm710 processor supplied with VirtualRPC-SE.
A StrongArm version of VirtualRPC-Adjust, which comes with RISC OS 4.39, will also be launched at the Wakefield show. These new StrongArm VirtualAcorns include a number of new features including:
StrongARM, ARM710 and ARM7500 processor cores.
HostFS2 allowing on the fly creation and deletion of mounts from within RISC OS.
DrivePop HostFS Mount manager allows one click setup of cameras and pen drives.
Faster screen update with support for a greater range of resolutions.
AutoMode configuration plugin to generate correct mode sets for non standard display sizes.
Mappings for files generated by the Windows version of OvationPro.
Includes WinClip, allowing RISC OS to read and write to the Windows clipboard.
Includes CallWin32 podule to allow communication between RISC OS and Windows.
Autolaunch files under Windows from inside RISC OS with the VirtualAcorn Windows Controller.
Improved battery manager with user configurable delay between battery checks.
Includes complete version of First Steps with RISC OS 4, as published by Alligata Media.
Improved version of the RISC OS user guide.
Updated applications including new versions of NetSurf, KinoAmp and WebsterLT.
Updated !System folder with the latest modules included.
RISCOS side VirtualAcorn user guide now split into separate chapters for ease of printing.
Upgrades for existing users will be available both at the show and my mail order. The following upgrades are available:
Upgrade from VirtualRPC-SE to VirtualRPC-SA (StrongArm) - ??30 (plus postage and packing of ??1.50 UK ??3.50 overseas).
