28/8/2013 - New RISCOS.com website goes public

3QD Developments Ltd are pleased to announce that the new RISCOS.com website is now publicly available. The new site is not yet 100% complete, but the vast majority of the work has been completed. The new website has been re-designed from the ground up, a process that's taken a lot longer than we had hoped, but the job wasn't trivial.

There have been various versions of riscos.com over the last 15 years, in total there are over 18,000 files occupying 9.04GB. That's a lot of content. We needed to go through every single one by hand to ensure that we didn't lose anything valuable in the re-design.

As part of the re-design process we wanted to ensure that the new site would display correctly on RISC OS browsers. as well as on other platforms. We would like to thank all those who helped with the testing of the site across so many platforms.

After 5 months, and many hundreds of hours, the site is complete enough that it can now be made publicly available.

The following sections of riscos.com are almost complete:

  • FTP area
  • User support
  • Developer support
  • Acorn Computers Ltd archives
  • RISCOS Ltd archives
  • News, FAQ, Contact details etc

The following sections are nearly complete:

  • RISC OS version pages (3.1, 3.5, 3.6, 4.02, 4.39)

The following are still in the process of development/testing (and are not publicly available):

  • Shopping system

We hope that the new RISCOS.com will be completed in the next couple of months.
