Picasso96 sold to Hyperion and Individual Computers

What is probably the defacto RTG standard, Picasso96 (which I believe edged out CyberGraphX years ago because of WinUAE’s support of P96), has been sold by the owners to Hyperion (makers of OS4.x) and Individual Computers (makers of many Amiga Hardware products).

I’m guessing Hyperion wanted greater control of this RTG system.  CyberGraphX, the main competitor, was owned by some of the authors of MorphOS, and it is the default RTG system on the MorphOS system.

I’m guessing this is a good thing as I would think it would get more updated support for OS4.  However, Hyperion have their hands full so I’m not sure if they’d have the resources to dedicate to P96 support.

We’ll keep an eye out for this.
