Due to unanimous public opinion, Doors CS 6, the next generation of the revolutionary Doors CS ASM shell for z80 graphing calculators, will be in the form of a Flash Application. While this will mean that the TI-83 calculator will no longer be supported after the last DCS 5.x release, it will allow for a far wider range of features in DCS6. There will be about two or three releases of the Doors CS 5 series before hard work begins on DCS6, however:

Doors CS 5.2: Corrected associated program support
Doors CS 5.3: Archiving bugfixes
Doors CS 5.5: Folder support added

After Doors CS 5.5 is released, work will begin on Doors CS 6. In the past I have elected to work on nearly all of my projects alone; while I will be writing the majority of the Doors CS 6 code, I will be selecting volunteers to help with programming, design, and debugging. The positions that will be available are as follows:

Beta Testers: A group of people with 83+, 83+SE, 84+, or 84+SE graphing calculators who are willing to test beta releases. Do not have to have programming knowledge, but it helps.

gCn Director: Skilled Windows programmer to make the globalCALCnet interface host program for computers

Library Team: Skilled z80 ASM programmers to work on the built-in libraries

CALCnet2 Head: Programmer skilled in z80 ASM to help create and test the CALCnet2 routines

Debug Team: Skilled z80 ASM programmers to help find and root out problems reported by the Beta Testers team.

And finally, how could I possibly leave out some cool eye candy. The following are simulated monochrome screenies, along with how they will look with the 4-bit grayscale interface DCS6 will sport.
