Special Announcement for Registered Charities

May 2023 - DSX Framework 5.2.3 Interim Release

We have released an interim version of our development framework - an earlier than planned upgrade for all

As we plan ahead for our next major versions, it was decided that customers should not have to wait for some of the latest features

By taking features and improvements planned for the next major version, we have backported the code into our stable 5.2.x framework, providing additional security, performance and 3rd party improvements

5.2.3 lays the groundwork for breaking apart the framework into more modular and dependency-free components - allowing smaller hosting environments and easier to deploy lifecycles for applications, and a migration path for what comes next

All customers will receive 5.2.3 as an in place upgrade - including the recently released improvements to Managed Apps

As always, free to our active customers

Keeping customers up to date

Sometimes, improvments are too good to wait for

By backporting valuable improvements, we keep customers up to date faster

A good roadmap is a flexible one - and like our customer solutions, our framework and processes evolve all the time

We are always planning ahead - with 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 6 and 7 on the horizon - but sometimes, we just have to fast track and deliver new tools now

And the story doesn't end there! - Managed Apps 2.3 and 2.4 are already on the way!

December 2021 - Simulation Software, just because we can

Turning a developers hobby into a piece of software wasn't really the plan.  But perhaps, it could actually be useful!

CodeStep's SimMachine 0.2 was developed to test a virtual machine environment - but rather differently to the usual ones.

This one wasn't designed to run your favourite OS - it was designed to build a software modelled environment to test hardware designs, new software designs and create a fully programmable "machine" - from scratch

The SimMachine framework allows software definitions of hardware components, software, BIOS routines and Operating System prototypes without endless wires or electrical nightmares associated with testing new designs

You can read more about the SimMachine Prototype here

Perhaps one day, this will turn into a fully fledged system development platform!
