Arca Noae, LLC, a Delaware-based Limited Liability Company, is excited to announce that they have reached an agreement with Alt Richmond, Inc. to license the source code for SNAP Graphics for OS/2.
Coupled with the amazing talent associated with the Company, this puts Arca Noae in a unique position to bring SNAP to the next level of capability to support modern chipsets with full graphics hardware acceleration.
“We have a team in place and ready to begin work,” said Lewis Rosenthal, Managing Member of Arca Noae. “There is a hot list of items needing attention – fixes – and a growing list of chipsets to add to SNAP’s repertoire.”
It is Arca Noae’s intention to release an updated version of SNAP Graphics for OS/2 in the near future.
Arca Noae, LLC, a Delaware-based Limited Liability Company, is pleased to announce their membership in the UEFI Forum.
The UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) specification defines a new model for the interface between personal-computer operating systems and platform firmware. The interface consists of data tables that contain platform-related information, plus boot and runtime service calls that are available to the operating system and its loader. Together, these provide a standard environment for booting an operating system and running pre-boot applications. Essentially, this layer provides a replacement for the traditional BIOS, and is the future of small computing architecture.
The UEFI Forum is a clearinghouse for all current, related documents pertaining to UEFI, the UEFI specification, and its adoption by manufacturers and software developers.
In addition, the UEFI Forum performs a similar function for ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface). Arca Noae develops and maintains the current ACPI implementation for the OS/2 and eComStation platform.
Arca Noae is committed to running OS/2 on current hardware. UEFI, like ACPI, is a continuation of the trend to move more functions from the BIOS to the operating system. Arca Noae is looking into how this new technology can be supported under OS/2 in the future.
Arca Noae is pleased to announce the immediate availability of InJoy Firewall, the premier firewall and VPN solution for OS/2, eComStation, Windows, and Linux in our online store. All three licensing options (Personal, Professional, and Enterprise) are available, in all user counts.
In addition, sponsoring bww bitwise works GmbH has never been easier. bww bitwise works is responsible for the ongoing work on the Firefox port for OS/2, Qt, Java, and so many more bits and pieces which make it possible for others to build great software for the platform. 100% of the net proceeds of your sponsoring go to funding this important work.
If you are already a registered licensee of Keith Merrington’s SearchPlus, SigmaMD5, or EasySync, there is no need to purchase any of those packages again from us in order to obtain the latest version(s).
Interested upgraders should go to Hobbes and search for the program name(s) and download them there. As of this writing, your existing registration entitles you to free updates. Just download and install.
While you are visiting Hobbes, we encourage you to donate. The Hobbes OS/2 Archive is an all-volunteer effort, and not a university-sponsored project. Thus, Hobbes exists solely from the appreciation of the OS/2 community. Arca Noae fondly acknowledges this longstanding and valuable resource.
