Ndless v3.1 beta Released
Posted by Ryan on 23 January 2012, 19:59 GMT

A lot of us in calc community have been waiting with baited breath for months now as Ndless v3.1 beta has loomed around the corner. After much speculation about the release date, a huge (largely) synchronized release was planned for this, and our archives are now in possessorship of this outstanding release. The official statement that we received from Oliver "ExtendeD" Armand is quoted below, with a link added:

  • v3.1 of Ndless now allows to develop and run third-party C and assembly programs on the protected TI-Nspire OS v3.1. This is the first version of Ndless compatible with the TI-Nspire CX and its bright and clear color display
  • The TI-Nspire emulator nspire_emu is now compatible with the CX
  • PolyDumper is a universal dumper for the TI-Nspire, required for CX emulation by nspire_emu
  • nRGBlib is a color graphics library that eases development of GUIs
  • The NESpire and gbc4nspire emulators have been updated with color display on the CX
  • The overclocker Nover is now compatible with the CX and can overclock it to nearly 220MHz
  • nDOOM, the port of the original Open Source Doom by Id Software has been enhanced and made compatible with the CX. It now brings a impressive gaming experience to the calculator world.

Oh, Armand, you never cease to amaze us!

around the corned, huh? :p

Anyways, the youtube video of the nDoom game looks great. Awesome job to those involved getting the cracks and such to work. Hopefully TI doesn't kill it off too quickly.

The only way they can kill it is if you willingly upgrade your calculator's software. Just stick with 3.1; it's not like the rules of mathematics change with each update!

Actually, currently, the Nspire's rules of mathematics /do/ change with each update: TI adds, or fixes, bugs in the CAS ;-)
See, for instance, [URL below poster name] (in French). IIRC, there's an English-speaking page on an official TI site, but I can't find it in a 1-minute search.

And TI does have ways to force people to upgrade the OS, such as:
* backwards-incompatible documents: make teachers use the newest OS version, which adds features in the document system, and then, in order to be able to read documents used for classes, their students are forced to upgrade their calculators;
* months after the release of an OS, in some stores, brand-new calculators are sold with the new OS.
