Gossamer 1.0 Released
Posted by Ryan on 15 June 2011, 23:17 GMT

Some very cool news has cropped up that I am thrilled to share with everyone. Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell, the author of such other featured software as Doors CS 7.1, has both announced and released Gossamer 1.0, described as "a fledging web browser for TI graphing calculators", in less than one week.

The project page features a few screenshots in addition to a video of an earlier version of the software in action. The browser is said to work in conjunction with CALCnet, globalCALCnet, and the Doors CS 7 shell (more on that in a minute). When it was announced that a full version would be on the way, other features were hinted at being added down the road. An extremely exciting potential feature includes the handling of .zip files in such a manner that allows for the download and extraction of software directly to calcs.

In addition to Gossamer 1.0, Kerm has released Doors CS 7.2 Beta 2, which is required in order to run the web browsing software. Remember this moment, such that you will be able to pass the story to your grandchildren about the day that the internet found its way to your calc.

Update: Kerm has uploaded a video of the current release of Gossamer in action, located here.

Thanks, superluigi! Be sure to stop by Cemetech if you have any bugs you'd like to share, and this goes for everyone else as well. The reason Doors CS 7.2 Beta 2 is a beta, and not just Doors CS 7.2, is I'm trying to get very thorough testing of the Direct USB globalCALCnet support done before I release it to the public.

Does this work for ti-89 titaniums? I would definitely want to download if it does, but I think it is only currently supported on ti-84s. Would be very awesome if you could start on an 89 version. Thanks in advance

It's 83+/84+ only, to my knowledge, I'm afraid.
