CDOS v2.0 is coming...sleep tight
The next version of one of the best QBASIC operating shells to ever bless this earth is coming...and soon. I've gotten inside information directly from the author, Collin Donnell.
CDOS v2.0 will be an improved version of CDOS v1.4 with a simplified (but in my opinion, better) version of the menuing system, plus many new features.
CDOS II is going to be pretty much completely changed from the ground up, while keeping it's past features. CDOS II is going to act as more of a web browser for viewing CDOS Scripter programs which will be multitasked... The core program serves to run a lot of cool scripter programs. The scripting language is going to resemble a version of QBASIC with some windowing statements,
keeping many QBASIC commands, but also having special CDOS commands. According to CollinD, any QBASIC programmer can learn CDOS in a few minutes.
Uncle Pennybags coming to QB?
That's right, Uncle Pennybags (or is it Moneybags?), the black and white Monopoly patriarch is coming to QBASIC. Secret Weapon Software is making a Monopoly game called Qnopoly using QBasic companies as
the property. They need more people to sign up, and it's free
advertising for your site/company. There will be two boards, the standard Monopoly board, and the
QBASIC company board. Also, Secret Weapon Soft will be rating the sites in order from best to worst,
like the Monopoly properties. This can't happen unless people sign up, so even if
you don't have a site or company, spread the news. This game is very original, and everyone
likes free advertising. :)
