Re: Wax your DM12,15,16 etc.

Just for the avoidance of any doubt, this procedure of waxing the case of your calculator is neither suggested nor endorsed by SwissMicros. Should the wax product damage the calculator's casing in any way, this is not covered by the warranty.

Re: DM42 Firmware Update Policy

One qiestion: if Thomas includes a paid version vould we get this paid version also (wuickly) on DM42? Wouldn't mind a yearly or monthly contribution (both to Thomas and Swissmicro's).

Is the memory leak that was fixed in 3.0.3 considered an unscheduled-update-worthy bug?
The plan is to release an update for the DM42 including Free42 3.0.3 next week. This will kick off the quarterly update schedule.

DM42 Firmware Update Policy

As you all know, the DM42's firmware is split into the proprietary operating system, DMCP, and the open source Free42 by Thomas Okken. DMCP has now matured to the point where we don't anticipate any further development of new features. If bugs are found then of course they will be fixed. Development...

Re: DM 41L missing * char.

When you press [alpha] [shift] × (multiplication) it's the multiplication sign × that you get, not an 'X'.

Re: prompt

There isn't really a need for such a book for the '41 because it doesn't sport menus to access the commands. On the '41, if it isn't in plain sight on the keyboard then you either have to type it in manually using the XEQ [a] .... [a] technique or you have to assign it to a USER key. I do, however, ...
