RISC OS Developments Ltd will be at this year's South-West show. Formed in 2016, we aim to secure the future of RISC OS and its applications through investment and development, and by introducing the system to new markets. In 2018, we were able to release RISC OS as fully open source software, and we have some exciting projects underway for 2019. Come and have a chat to us. We look forward to seeing you and seeing RISC OS in action on various stands throughout the day.

- Chris Hall
New for the South West show is a data monitor running RISC OS 5.26 on a Raspberry Pi designed to monitor the health of signalling circuits to provide useful data for fault finding. The unit has been extensively tested on a heritage railway logging each change of state of selected signalling relays controlling an Automatic Open Crossing Locally Monitored (AOCL). The results were boring as the crossing operated faultlessly. Also on show is my Family Tree software and a GPS tracker.

Matthew will be selling our popular map software, RiscOSM, and hopes to have a new related product to demonstrate at the show. Also available will be the database software Impact and, for puzzlers, SuperDoku and Wrangler, and House of Cards for those who like patience games but can't be bothered to do their own shuffling.
