> Free Oberon is a cross-platform IDE for development in Oberon, made in the classical pseudo-graphic style (like Free Pascal). The IDE is also written in Oberon. One of its ideas is to popularize Oberon among people who use Free Pascal (there are many Free Pascal users in the former USSR) and among programming teachers. It is part of a bigger project, including programs, websites and books.
> Internally, it uses a modified Vishap Oberon Compiler (which is based on Ofront and which translates Oberon to C). The syntax is Oberon-2, but with 4-byte integers and additional built-in procedure FLOOR that converts REAL and LONGREAL to INTEGER (and not to LONGINT).
> The product is available on GNU/Linux and Windows, it includes a built-in module Graph that you can use "out of the box" to write cross-platform graphics programs (internally it uses SDL2). The project includes documentation in Russian and English languages. The English documentation can be found here: http://freeoberon.su/files/FreeOberon_v0.1.0_en.pdf
