Maybe I should look into that :-D


Althoigh the uQlx license is troublesome from a code integration point of view!

Does it still contain that "maximum commercial copying fee must not exceed DM 10" clause? :?

Anyway, I don't think SMSQ/E for UQLX would have to be part of the UQLX code covered by that license. Minerva and QDOS also don't.

It wasnt the SMSq/e license that's the issue, its just with it being a slightly odd license I am loath to put in time for major new features especially if I was to cheat and use libraries to supply some/all of them!

It does and or doesnt contain that clause depending how you read subsequent item!

Anyway, Pi5 will be basically indistinguishable from a PC for running JAVA so SMSQmulator is the sensible choice!

What's odd about the BSD licence?

Edit: OK, I now think this is about the uQLx license. It wasn't really clear there.

Nothing wrong with BSD license, I do a lot of work under that with my paying job.

Yes was about uQlx license.

Hi Derek,

the Pi5 is coming, Eben Upton said so recently. He's not giving much else away though.


Cheers,
Norm.

The major complaint about Pi4 is even though it has PCIe it doesn't support NVMe storage, so that is my prediction. Plus faster 64bit cores.

The Rockchip devices I have which use NVMe as storage are really useful for software development.
