HP Calculator Forum Section; HP Prime "DummyOS"
Published by tifreak8x on July 13, 2014 at 8:46:03 PM CST | Discuss this article (9)
After having need of it for some time, we have finally made ourselves a spot on the Cemetech forum index specific to HP calculator news, projects and programming support. I've looked through some of the subforums, like the Technology and Calculator open topic, and moved what topics I could find over to the new section. If you happen to find any other topics I might have missed that are specific to HP calculators, or maybe something about Casio not in the Casio section, let us know, and we'll see if it's something that needs to be moved. We look forward to continuing to drive discussion and exploration of HP's calculators old and new here at Cemetech.
On that note, Lionel Debrouxl, an administrator of French-language TI site TI-Planet, mentioned on an HP enthusiast forum that he succeeded in making a small replacement firmware image for the HP Prime. He describes it as a "DummyOS", a proof-of-concept that it's possible to put third-party OSes on the device, but it's a nice reminder that the platform is relatively accessible for developers. While it's not yet clear how to write ASM/C programs for the Prime's built-in operating system, the Prime's S3C2416 ARM processor is supported by Linux, and building a Linux image for the device with some driver work is in the realm of possibility with a few weeks of work by community members. We look forward to watching or perhaps participating in this research.
Doors CSE 8.1 Released

Back in November 2013, I released Doors CSE 8.0, the first shell for the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition. Although the shell code was the product of my work, and many of the powerful hybrid BASIC routines included were the direct work of Patrick "tr1p1ea" Prendergast or more indirectly "Iambian" Zenith, much of the community had a hand in its creation. I initially did not plan to create a TI-84+CSE shell, and I thought my days of actively developing code in the Doors CS lineage were behind me. However, the community made its voice heard, the need for a TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition shell was heard, and Doors CSE 8 came into being. After listening to the pulse of feedback from developers and users, we are proud to present the next iteration of Doors CSE.
Doors CSE 8.1 builds even more stability, more features, and more tools for programmers into Doors CSE. Doors CSE lists and can run all of your TI-BASIC and Assembly games and programs. It lets you organize your programs into folders, and archive, lock, copy, rename, delete, and hide them. It gives you extra features like an enhanced TI-BASIC editor, a clock, lowercase letters, and much more. Doors CSE 8 also contains the powerful xLIBC library by Patrick Prendergast and Celtic 2 CSE, which will make color TI-BASIC programs and games more powerful, useful, and fun. Doors CSE 8.1 now also includes fixes to the Celtic 2 CSE libraries and the xLIBC functions, more xLIBC tools for hybrid BASIC programmers, and the ability to list and run Apps (Applications) from within Doors CSE 8. Here's what's new:

Five days ago, I published Doors CSE 8.1 Release Candidate 1, the first public test of the newest iteration of Doors CSE 8. Doors CSE 8.1 adds new features, new optimizations, and better stability to the popular Doors CSE 8.0. It fixes a few subtle but frustrating bugs, including some related to the Celtic 2 CSE hybrid BASIC libraries and others subtle issues with how Doors CSE interacts with the OS. The biggest new feature is the frequently-requested ability to list and run Applications (Apps), along with a host of smaller features and new xLIBC library functions. Thanks to Cemetech's members' tireless work, a number of bugs in Release Candidate 1 have been identified that I was able to track down and repair:

Cemetech Contest #12: Educational Shenanigans Starts Today
Published by KermMartian on July 2, 2014 at 9:34:01 AM CST | Discuss this article (8)
Cemetech has a long history of hosting programming contests for the community. Most recently, we held a Lightning Contest (our eleventh contest), and last summer, we hosted Contest #10: Physics. We have had generous sponsors who have provided prizes for these past contests, and now that we have all prizes and a topic for a new contest, we are ready to announce Contest #12: Educational Shenanigans. Since we unoficially announced the topic over a week ago, we are thrilled to see that some Cemetech members have already started their entries, but now it's your turn to brainstorm a contest entry. Cemetech Contest #12 challenges you to create an educational program for the TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus. While we will allow games in this contest, our primary challenge to you is to create a program that teaches something, be it geography, geometry, history, literature, foreign language, engineering, physics, music, or any other subject. The rules are simple:
So what are you waiting for? Getting coding, inspire students to use calculator for more than math, and win some calculators!
Contest #12 Rubric
Contest #12 Rules
Two of these six generously-donated calculators will be awarded as prizes, with the remainder awarded for one or two contests in Fall 2014. A special thanks to our anonymous donor for making this contest possible!
