newRPL: Official release: 0.8Alpha
The newRPL team presents the first official ROM release (0.8Alpha). Up to now it was only released for early testing in this forum. Now it's being offered as an official release on SourceForge (go into the "Browse All Files" and into the proper folder to find the latest ROM).
While still in Alpha stage and far from completion, the project is quite usable and has a lot of commands and new features for users to explore and test.

The "usual" download location (here) has been updated to 0.8Alpha as well.

For those who already tried newRPL, a full memory wipe is required when installing this version (and from now on updates will go smoothly, no more memory wipes, ever).

This ROM release marks the 3rd birthday celebration of the newRPL project (see this thread for a trip down memory lane on how things started. It's been 3 full years of work into newRPL, and the project is coming up very nicely.

Thanks to all for 3 years of support and encouragement, and as usual, keep finding issues and reporting back!

RE: newRPL: Official release: 0.8Alpha
Hello,

Great job!

For demo version, you can please better simulate the real LCD (hp50), the background of another color (clearer), the indicators are always visible a ligh gray color (off), a gray color (on) and black color (hold ).

Ideas

For the virtual keyboard, this is my idea

1: each key subdivided into 4 regions, to activate each key, independent of pressing the keys change.

2: use newRPL pixelated font on each key.

3: virtual LCD 393x240 pxls (zoom 3x)

4: Option to separate keyboard and screen

A skin (image sketch).

Another idea for skin is to show on each key, the text of the change key, as does a ti89 emulator
