Palm OS handhelds are unique for their capability to compile applications right on them. This feature is made possible by an opensource product called OnBoardC….which unfortunately had some issues in the past.

Fortunately, it looks like the bad times are over – Ryan Rix (who seems to be the new maintainer of the product) has just sent me the following release:

OnBoardC 2.60 has been released here: http://p.sf.net/onboard-ng/downloads

This release is the first official release in the OnBoardC fork OnBoard-NG.

Interested in helping?

Most wiki pages are still under construction…

This release contains a MUCH UPGRADED SrcEdit, now officially version
2.60 (though the About dialog still references it as 2.51+),
containing, among many other bugfixes, 90% implemented VFS support.
The VFS support is strictly untested!!! All bugs should be submitted
to OnBoard-NG mantis bugtracker: http://p.sf.net/onboard-ng/bugtrack

Please talk back.

P.S. OnBoardC can really be used for developing commercial applications. Consider Tamoggemon Daily Quote a prime example of what can be done…
