Shells, Puzzles, and Contests, Oh My!

7.2A lot of big things have been dropping from Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell and Cemetech recently, but where do we start? Action? Romance? Werewolves?! Better than all of those, let's dish on calc shells!

Many people know Doors CS as the shell that keeps on giving, the shell that has evolved into one that does it all. The reputation is upheld by its recent update to version 7.2, a now hulking beast that has come a long way, baby. This is said to be the last release of the shell, and it's certainly feature-rich enough to stay on top of any forseeable future software developments for its platform(s), but we'll still hold out a glimmer of hope for the addition of multitouch support for an eventual port to iOS. It's really been a joy watching this project unfold over the years.

In order to assuage the sting of a bittersweet "goodbye" to Doors CS updates, Kerm has released a soon-to-be fan favorite for the TI-84+ CSE: Tetric A: Color Tetris. Let's face it, everyone loves a good Tetris game, and Tetric A looks great. Plus, we love seeing such a quality software library for the 84+ CSE expanding so rapidly.

Thank you so much for giving the wirkd a shell that is so much more than a 'click the icon to run it' gimmick. It has that, INTERNET, Multi-calc gaming, Axe functionality, ION and MOS compatibility (for the nonbelievers), and xlib, Celtic, omnicalc, and Doors CS Basic libraries for the programmer in all! Renounce your vows to MOS and ION now!

Thanks for your loyalty to Doors CS! It means a lot to me that so many people are passionate about the shell, and while Doors CS 7.2 is indeed the end of the line for the TI-83+/TI-84+ Doors CS, I remain hopeful that I'll get time to make a TI-84+ C Silver Edition Doors CS one of these days.
