Re: DM42 versions and shipping question

Hi there. To answer your questions: 1) Yes. The unsold DM42 units with the older keyboard were removed from sale in September 2020 when the DM41X was released. From that point onwards, only DM42 units made with the same, improved keyboard as the new DM41X were sold and shipped. 2) Again, yes. Even i...

Re: DM15L - origin of firmware routines ?

All of the DM1x and DM41/L/X machines are in fact emulators running the original HP ROMs, sometimes lightly patched to accomodate the hardware and any extensions provided by SwissMicros.

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). The paid version of Free42 is a premium product that Thomas Okken will be licensing to individuals. This product w...

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...
