Probably a better source is the original Linz repository. There is lots of stuff there besides Dialogs.

Dialogs need an Oberon-2 compiler for RISC5, which is probably even more advanced than reworking Texts. On the other hand, if Oberon-2 for RISC5 existed, then the most straightforward way of enhancing the FPGA Oberon System would be a recompilation of Linz Oberon V4 on top of the current video subsystem.

Looking at the Linz Oberon V4, which I just launched under Windows 7, I can see a lot of highly useful software. It could all be reused if the Oberon-2 compiler for RISC5 was available.

Thank you,
