Ndless 3.9 is out! by Sorunome
February 24, 2015, 03:22:38 pm

This must be great news for all you Ndless users: Ndless 3.9 is out!
This new Ndless version allows you to install it on OS 3.9.0 and 3.9.1, so that even the Nspires that came with OS 3.9.1 (HW-S) can use it!

OS 3.9.0/3.9.1 users go and grab your ndless here: http://ndless.me/

TI Connect CE 5.0 Released by pimathbrainiac
February 24, 2015, 02:19:21 pm

With the success of Project Periodical, I will be starting on some other news articles and the like. This isn't extremely new, but it has yet to be discussed here on Omni.

As is tradition with TI in recent years, every time they have released a new calc, they have released either an update for existing connectivity software (such as the TI Connect update that arrived with the CSE) or completely new software (such as the Nspire-specific link software). With the upcoming arrival of the TI 84 Plus CE, a new color calculator built to be better, faster, and stronger, TI has released TI Connect CE 5.0. This software brings back some of the functionality of Graph Link with a program editor, but stops support for the 68k calcs and all non-USB z80 calcs. So while this is an update of sorts, TI Connect 4.0 is still available.

As far as performance, I have not yet been able to test the connectivity part of the software, but as stated on CodeWalrus, the software is much faster in both transfer speed and loading times than TI Connect 4.0. The device explorer and screen capture features also feature easy switching between multiple connected calculators. The programming editor interface reminds one of TokenIDE and SourceCoder with the tokens list and reference on the side, but with a more sleek and modern feel. The downsides are that Axe syntax and extended basic syntax are not currently supported due to this being TI's program, and not the community's.

More information on the TI-84 Plus CE by Sorunome
January 13, 2015, 04:43:18 pm

TI-84+CEAs TIs official page about the new TI-84+CE states it will be released in Spring 2015!
Features that are officially mentioned include:
  • Lighter and thinner than the other TI-8x models
  • Backlit color display
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Different colored cases
  • Same key layout as previous models / same use of OS


Other features found on various sources online:
  • Use of EasyData 5.0 --> possibly OS numbering of 5.x? (as pointed out here)
  • Use seems "very fast", as pointed out in a deleted Reddit comment --> maybe TI decided to use a ez80? Or, maybe to save production costs, they are using an ARM and are merely emulating the z80?
  • The model doesn't seem to have a 2.5mm I/O port anymore
  • 150KB of user RAM and 3.0MB of archive, according to Vernier
