Aaron Timbrell rounds up the software directory
In the last few issues of Foundation RISCWorld we've published quite a few entertainment related applications as part of our "free commercial software title every issue" pledge. So this time we are going to get serious. As such we are delighted to announce that free with this issue is a full copy of Locus by Richard Sharpe.
Locus - a mathematical graph plotter
Locus is a mathematical graph plotter and data analysis tool written to provide ease of use with sophistication. It is sophisticated enough for use with 'A' level and post 'A' level students and straightforward enough to be used at late primary or early secondary level.
It has the following features:
Locus is StrongARM compatible and is suited for all 26bit versions of RISC OS.
The complete DiscWorld line up
As per usual we have our collections of the latest RISC OS applications, as well as support files for this issues articles:
Support materials for our article on second processors.
Software featured in the Iyonix column.
Software covered in the letters column.
Our full free commercial title for this issue.
All the latest PD, shareware and freeware releases from the PD column.

Programming examples from our latest book serialisation.
This contains two sets of Toolbox Modules. The Castle archive contains the latest 26/32 bit neutral system components, required if you want to run a lot of new software releases on 26bit machines. The RISCOS Ltd archive contains later and improved versions of a number of modules and is suitable for all versions of RISC OS from 3.1 onwards. We have also included copies of SharedUnixLib and UnixHome as these are needed by some programs.
