HistoryEdit

The first issue was announced in September 1987[1][2] and came out in October 1987, a month before the launch of RISC User.[3] In August 2007, the current editor-in-chief, Jim Nagel, took over from the founding editor Paul Beverley.[4] Members of The ARM Club were offered discounted subscriptions in 1999, around the time of the discontinuation of Archimedes World and announced closure of RISC User.[5]
