ACCU Conference 2018
Friday, April 27, 2018

We had an absolute blast at this year's ACCU Conference, and if you were there we imagine you did too.

For us the highlight had to be the launch of #include <C++>, a new global, inclusive, and diverse community for developers interested in C++.

This is an initiative that has been brewing for a while, and we're very happy to be a part of. Above all else #include <C++> is designed to be a safe place for developers irrespective of their background, ethnicity, gender identity or sexuality. The group runs a Discord server which is moderated to ensure that it remains a safe space and which you are welcome to join.

On the technical front, one unexpected highlight of the conference was Benjamin Missel's wonderful short talk on writing a C compiler for a BBC Micro, during which he demonstrated SSHing into a BBC Model B through the serial port!

Most conference sessions were recorded so even if you weren't there you can still watch them.

See you at ACCU 2019!

ResOrg has been released

ResOrg has just been released. This is a maintenance update for ResOrg 2.0, and is compatible with all ResOrg 2.0 licence keys.

The following changes are included:

  • Fixed a bug in the Symbols Display which could cause some "OK" symbols to be incorrectly shown in the "Problem Symbols Only" view.
  • Corrected the upper range limit for control symbols from 28671 (0x6FFF) to 57343 (0xDFFF).
  • ResOrg binaries are now dual signed with both SHA1 and SHA256.
  • Added support for Visual Studio 2017.
  • Corrected the File Save Dialog filters used by the ResOrgApp "File | Export" command.
  • The ResOrgApp "File | Export", "File | Save", "File | Save As" and "File | Properties" commands (which apply only to symbol file views) are now disabled when the active view is a report.
  • Fixed a crash in the Symbol File Properties Dialog.
  • Fixed a typo on the Symbol File "Next Values" page.
  • Various minor improvements to the installer.
