"The BBC has confirmed that long running rumours of a new BBC Micro are in fact true. The project, tentatively named BBC Micro 2, is not a new hardware platform like the original. Instead, it?s a cross-platform IDE based on Eclipse, the popular open source software development environment.

"The BBC plans to release the software on Linux, OS X, and Windows, as well having support for the upcoming Raspberry Pi.

This new project is designed to do the same, but clearly as part of the user interfaces people associate with and use in their day-to-day lives."
