It’s been long anticipated after the record success of our previous hit (RC14) in February 2015, but the wait is over.
Right up to date support for the latest ARMv8 in the main OS ROM, bundled with hundreds of fixes and improvements to the OS. The previous release was based on RISC OS 5.21 which was current at the time.
There are new and updated applications on the disc too, as well significant improvements completed thanks to donations in the form of updated JPEG support, EDID monitor detection and the first few pieces of USB work.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation have been busy creating new models at an astonishing rate, so the list of different Pi boards supported has grown too. RC15 now supports:
- Pi Zero (new)
- Pi 1 models A, A+, B, B+
- Pi 2 with BCM2836 processor
- Pi 2 with BCM2837 processor (new)
- Pi 3 (new)
- Compute Module
- Compute Module 3 (new)
Thanks to Chris Hall for helping testing all the variants alongside ROOL. That’s a pretty epic list, even more than the 6 different machine types that the Risc PC and ARM7500 ROMs do.
We’ll be selling this new version pre-pressed onto ROOL branded discs for £10 + VAT at the Wakefield show this weekend on stand 15. If you can’t make it to the show they can also be ordered by post from our store instead.
