The RISC OS Packaging Project

RiscPkg is no longer being developed, and has largely been superseded by PackMan.

The purpose of RiscPkg is to allow downloading, installing and updating of a variety of RISC OS software packages with ease. The user manual is available at this link. There is also a RiscPkg support mailing list. To subscribe, send a blank email to riscpkg-request@lists.riscpkg.org with a subject of 'subscribe'.

Amongst others, Cretin, DeskLib, NetSurf and WinEd are all available through RiscPkg.

RiscPkg is released under version 2 of the GPL.
