RISC OS software to download from !Store

The Iconbar - Fri, 09/22/2017 - 06:47
In previous articles, we looked at package managers and some of the software available on !PackMan. In this article we are going to highlight some of the software available in !Store and ask for your suggestions.

When you run !Store, it offers you a long list of files and includes both free and commercial software (which you can buy via !Store). As with !Packman it gives you a front end to make it easy to search, provide more details and you can select categories.

If you are looking to run old software on a new machine, our old friend Aemulor is available as free download. There is also in interesting Atari ST emulator called Hatari if you want a real ‘GEM’ environment on your machine.

!Store is also the home for the latest version of !Impression. (although I would criticise the broken link which goes nowhere and looks bad. The pages like PMS Music scribe also include broken links).

Some very high quality software originally written by David Pilling is now freely available and you can find this on !Store.

!Store offers more than software, and you will also find fonts and copies of DraG’N’Drop (which we reviewed here).

What are you downloading from !Store?

First look at updates coming to Remote Desktop Services

Terminal Services team blog - Wed, 09/20/2017 - 22:30

Remote Desktop Services (RDS) allows you to access a remotely-hosted Windows desktop environment or application from almost any device. Were extending the capabilities of RDS to offer more security, flexibility to run Windows apps on any device, and cloud-readiness with upcoming additions to the RDS platform.

This week, I join Simon May to explain and demonstrate the updates to RDS architecture and services. The RDS team has innovated in three key areas:

  1. Security:RDS-hosted environments can use authentication with Azure Active Directory see how you get advantages like Conditional Access policies, Multifactor Authentication, Integrated authentication with other SaaS Apps using Azure AD, and the ability to get security signals from the Intelligent Security Graph. Moreover, by isolating the infrastructure roles (Gateway, Web, connection broker and others) from the desktop and app deployment hosts, we add another layer to separation for higher security of your virtualized environments.
  2. Cloud readiness: There are updates coming to infrastructure roles with innovations in the existing RD infrastructure roles Web, Gateway, Connection Broker, Licensing see how to take advantage of the elasticity and scale capabilities of Azure. Get a first look at the new Diagnostics role that helps you monitor your deployment effectively.
  3. Windows apps on ANY device: RDS has long had the flexibility to run on cross-platform desktop and mobile operating systems using apps, but we are now building support for HTML5 browser-delivered experiences. Of course, RDS works with Windows even Windows 10 S offering even more flexibility for how your apps and desktops are accessed.

To see these new capabilities for yourself, along with new cloud-integrated architectural options explained, check out the show.
