Editor's Thoughts and Introduction:

 It's been a quiet end of April for the Amiga scene. That doesn't mean
nothing is happening, just that there weren't a lot of news releases.
However, even in a quiet month the Amiga community is always doing
something, so there are many things to read in this issue.
 There are always things that have happened for which we don't have
press releases or posted stories. This month, a number of Amigans have
wondered what has happened to SoftLogik, publishers of the excellent
"PageStream" publishing package. As nearly as we can determine, the
company is in transition to a new location somewhere in Wisconsin. Who
knows, they might even wind up near "Amiga Update".
 The following quote from the SoftLogik mailing list was sent along to
us:
 "As reported online earlier, Soft-Logik is moving. The building in
St. Louis was closed February 24th, 1999. We expect to finalize the
purchase of the new location in Wisconsin on Tuesday, March 9th,
1999."
 As we obtain information, we'll pass it along.
 Meantime, please enjoy this latest issue.
 Brad Webb,
 Editor

E-mail to the E-ditor:

Date: Sun, 11 Apr 1999
Subject: IBrowse

 Can't seem to find them. Their site is not available and this right
after they announce a new upcoming release. What do you think?

 How many of us Amigans do you think are left out there?

 Do you think they started too late developing the Amiga at Gateway or
is there still hope?

 With the PC prices at all time lows, it seems almost ludicrous for
someone to dump thousands into a machine that is still using 10 year
old technology and software, speaking for myself, of course. Just got
through getting an A4KT up and running that has been sitting in my
office for 15 months. Talk about trying to get information, I still
haven't found the right 32 meg simm modules to plug into the card. I
have purchased 8 already. Ouch!!!!!


Kind regards
Ed

~~~~~~
Hello Ed,
 The IBrowse web site has returned, though it could use some updating.
We'd certainly have a great loss if anything happened to Omnipresence.
 Not sure of the answers to your other questions. There are more
Amigans than many might think, and in unusual places. Everyday I walk
into my "day job"'s building in one of the most powerful corporations
anywhere in the world and see the work of anonymous Amigas all around
me. Our headquarters building has large TV monitors scattered
throughout for announcements, corporate news and programs related to
our products. The system is Amiga based even though most people in the
IT organization have never heard of it. (Those who work near me have!)
 As for Gateway, their innovative plans should be able to make up for
any late start. There's always room for a good product, especially in
a niche market. The key is to advertise, and know your market. If
anyone can handle that, Gateway can.
 Finally, I can't help on the simm question, but I'll bet our readers
can!
 Regards,
 Brad

 Joint Amiga Developers (JAD) have announced that they are now active,
and ready to begin the construction of an Internet-based development
system which will gather Amiga-developers from all over the world to
develop major applications.

 This should be of interest to anyone who wants to see some more major
applications for the Amiga, as well as make sure that the next
generation of Amigas will have a solid base of applications to grow
with.

 It is a theory which is yet untested. The success of this theory
depends on YOU!

 Take a look at our homepage at: http://jad.amiga-software.com

 Or mail us at: amiganetwork@usa.net

 Please note that JAD is currently a non-profit organization, which
means that there is no money to earn from this. But if you just help a
little, you can make a difference too.

Voyager 3 Notes
===============

 Ok, here's a short summary of what has been done, is being done and
(eventually) will be done for Voyager 3. This focusses on "major"
changes, and I've written it offhand, so I may have forgot something.

Document revision: 1, 16.4.99

Javascript
----------

 Of course, the thing everyone wants (esspecially the ones asking for
"Java" :)

 I've implemented the Javascript 1.2 core language with a nicely-done
bytecode interpreter. Voyager first compiles the code down into a
special P-Code (or "Bytecode", as it's nowadays called, although it
really consists of 16 bit instructions) which is then executed by a
special interpreter. This should give the fastest JS implementation
available in the industry, and should esspecially help with the
otherwise massive impact of event handler code or looping operations.

 The Document Object Model I'm implementing is closely based on the
one of the Microsoft Internet Explorer, because it is much more
flexible than that of NS (that's what M$ calls "Dynamic HTML").

 Status: mostly done, in testing stage, gathering real-world feedback
now

HTML
----

 Numerous major and minor updates. Support for CSS 1 is being worked
on and will most likely be ready in time. Note that "Dynamic HTML" is
actually a JS-related issue.

Status: done, in testing stage, gathering real-world feedback now

GUI
---

 Main GUI is now completely customziable with the well-known "coolbar"
technology borrowed from the Windows world. Bookmarks are replaced
with the new embedded version of the Contact Manager. New IE4-alike
history allows finding

Status: mostly done

Networking
----------

 Cache system has been reworked to require less maintaince. Optional
"blacklisting" for image fetching based on URLs allows one to get rid
of banners and based tracking services. The same will probably be
added for cookies.

Status: mostly done

Java
----

 The "Merapi" JavaVM seems to have died. Holger Kruse of Nordicglobal
recently announced the Daytona JavaVM, and has invited all browser
authors to participate in a design discussion about a potential plugin
API for Daytona. If this project has a future (and given hkr's track
record, it surely will), I'm definitvly going to support it.

Status: time will tell

Flash/Shockwave
---------------

 David "Zapek" Gerber is working on integrating the free flash 3
player as an V plugin.

Status: being worked on. It's either finished in time or someone in
Switzerland will have his buttock prodded :^)

Image decoders
--------------

 Updated to current versions of libjpeg and libpng. Speed improvements
in the rendering code, and will now also deal fine with CGFX4
in-buffer bitmaps. Fixed tons of low-memory issues. Modularized and
loaded on demand based on the system architecture for maximum
efficiency with easy upgrading to PPC. Special support for FBlit on
AGA systems to totally eliminate the need to use chipmem.

Status: done, in testing stage

Plugins
-------

 Nothing really done yet, but the Flash player is being designed as an
plugin and will stirr up some required changes.

Status: erm

{Found this on the net recently. Must regard as a rumor. In any event,
we weren't invited. ;-) Brad}

 Event: Amiga Inc. Press conference

 Date: Fri Apr 30, 1999

 Description: All the dealers and important developers are being
gathered at a secret location near Heathrow {that's in England, for
the geographically challenged ;-)} for a conference with Jim Collas
and Petro Tyschtschenko. We don't know what will be discussed yet, but
assume that there will be demos of OS3.5 and OS5.

                 OS3.5 Details from AUGS User Group Meeting

Posted by Martin Heine in comp.sys.amiga.misc:

 Here are some more details regarding OS 3.5 as revealed by
Haage&Partner at the AUGS-Meeting - as usual aimed as a piece of first
info in Germenglish until someone tells you all this in an official
statement in correct English. =)

Internet:

 A special version of AWeb will be the Browser (like I said) and the
TCP/IP-stack will be Miami (unlike I said :-). Integrated
Network-support. The E-Mail-API and the simple E-Mail-Client will be
from the author of Voodoo and New York.

Workbench:

 Regarding our topic "Moving of the Icons" was said that it wouldn't
be necessary anymore to use the Shift-Key when moving more than one
icon. An "Unselect" will be possible when more than one icon is
selected. All Preferences-Programs will get the new Reaction-surface.
The Submenus of the WB will be optimized for a better handling.

Icon Library:

 When selecting, the icons will start to "glow"; when dragging them
they'll get semi-transparent. Via the "Info"-Option it will now also
be possible to set the process-priority. The current and the New Icons
will be supported. The AppIcons will now be able to be animated.

Reaction:

 The Tool Reactor will enable software-authors to use the new
Reaction-surface with their own software. One of the highlights of
Reaction is the possibility to have a color-gradient in the background
of a window. Also bugs in the asl.library will be removed.

PowerPC:

 WarpUp will be integrated in it's latest version. An important part
will be the Preferences-settings which will complement the
integration.

Installer:

 The installer will be able to be opened on an own screen. This screen
can have a color-gradient (where did I see this before...)-: New will
be the possibility to go steps backward during installation.

Printers:

 The printer-support will be redesigned completely, so that
24-bit-printing will be possible on the WB. CyberGraphX and Picasso96
will be supported. There will be only one Printer-Setting in the
future, which will also have a preview-window showing immediately the
changed settings.

Datatypes:

 Reworked and improved, now also 24-bit-capable. New are datatypes for
AIFF, JPG and GIF. Complete rework of the Amigaguide-Datatype. The
documentation will be in HTML in German and English. Release date is
still August. First Beta-Tests will start in ca. 3 weeks. AmigaOS 3.5
will be delivered on CD-ROM for 99,50 DM.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

    B E T A   T E S T E R S   S O U G H T   F O R   O S   3 . 5


 In May the beta testing phase for the new AmigaOS 3.5 starts.

 To be considered as a beta-tester, you would have to match the
following criteria:

 o Internet connection
 o sufficient knowledge of the English language
 o enough time for the testing
 o PGP-key
 o Amiga-System with the following minimum specifications: MC68020, 6
MB RAM, hard drive, CD-ROM-Drive, AGA Chipset or Graphics card, OS 3.1
ROMs


 Every beta-tester will have to sign a contract, and is not allowed to
pass on any information or data, which he will be receiving during the
tests, to third parties.

 Communication will only be through a closed mailing list, in the
English language.

 Every beta-tester is expected to send in a report in regular
intervals.

 Should you feel you are capable for this task, please fill out the
form at http://www.amiga.com. Application is only possible via the
Internet. Should Amiga accept you for testing, you will receive
confirmation from shortly. Amiga regrets it is most likely they will
not be able to take all those who are interested for beta-testing and
hope for the understanding of applicants.

World of Amiga '99 -it's going ahead!

 PBA Events in association with AmigaSoc UK (http://uk.amigasoc.org)
are pleased to announce that the most eagerly awaited Amiga event on
everyone's calendar is going ahead. The show will be on the weekend of
24th and 25th July.

 Many people have expressed the need to host the UK's premier Amiga
event at an alternative venue. Although the Novotel was selected for
reasons of tradition in the past, the time has come to break with
tradition and go for something new. This year, we'll be holding the
event in a prestigious Kensington venue which we're sure you'll agree
is a huge improvement over the Novotel!

 In addition to the usual things people have come to expect from the
show, we are aiming to run a number of other events within the show.
These will be organised with the help of UK user groups, so you can
guarantee that the place will be brimming with Amiga experts with
brains just waiting to be picked!

 * Games competitions: Amiga multi-player games are getting better all
the time. Now's your chance to play them with loads of other people...
and you might even win a prize!

 * An Amiga cybercafe: If you're not on the Internet already, see how
easy it is to get your Amiga connected!

 * Seminars: Following on from last year's hugely successful series of
seminars, we'll be getting leading Amiga people to make presentations
on various subjects (if you'd like to hold a seminar, get in touch
with Andrew Elia (E-Mail: andrew@uk.amigasoc.org) now)

 * How-to sessions: If you're in any doubt as to the best way to go
about towering your A1200, or getting on the Internet, Amiga experts
from around the UK will show you how (if you've got any ideas for
potential workshops, then contact Andrew Elia (E-Mail:
andrew@uk.amigasoc.org)or use the forms soon to be available on our
website).

 * Shareware registration: Your chance to register some top quality
Amiga software without all the hassle of sending money to far off
places.

 * A user group hospitality area: Those that are members of registered
user groups can relax in a private and informal atmosphere while
getting the chance to hobnob with Amiga celebrities from around the
world.

 * Stands for user groups: If you're not a member of a user group,
then you can come along and meet representatives from your nearest
group. On the other hand, if you're a user group and you'd like to
take the opportunity to recruit some more members, then the WOA show
is the perfect place to start. If your user group wants a piece of the
action, E-Mail Chris Livermore (E-Mail: chrisl@uk.amigasoc.org).

 * The inimitable Annex: Get autographs and kisses from Amiga's own
pop group!

 Undoubtedly, one of the most exciting things happening at the show
will be the launch of OS 3.5. All being well, this product should be
launched at the show and will be on sale. You won't get another chance
to try before you buy! Additionally, the next generation Amigas are
just around the corner, so you never know what else you might see!

 The 1998 AAA awards (http://www.aaa-awards.org) will also be
presented at the show, so you can see first hand who will be
collecting this year's international award as well as the first ever
UK AAA award.

 The official World Of Amiga website (http://www.worldofamiga.com) is
already on-line. All the latest news will be posted here. We are
currently in the process of updating it to include all the information
visitors to the show could possibly need, including details of hotels,
a map of the venue, our growing list of exhibitors, and any news
relating to the show as it becomes available to us. We also hope to
offer an on-line ticket ordering system courtesy of IMM Studios
(http://www.immstudios.com). If there's something else you feel we
should provide through the site then drop us an E-Mail
(andrew@uk.amigasoc.org)!

 Be in no doubt, this show has got the full backing of Amiga.

 Tickets will be priced at £7.50 for adults, and £5.00 for under 14s.
This year we will also be offering special rates for families. Two
adults and two children (under 14) enter for only £15.00!
Additionally, for people wishing to attend on both days of the show,
there will be a special booth on Saturday that will sell tickets to
existing ticket holders for Sunday's show for a mere £2.00 (£1.00 for
under 14s). There will also be a number of tempting door prizes.
Details will be made available on our website.

 As far as exhibitors are concerned, we are aiming to provide a
competitive rate this year, and will also be offering special low-cost
tables to companies/organisations who are on a tight budget. In short,
we want to please everyone!

 You won't want to miss it!

By Chris Seward

For Immediate Release

 Amiga Information Online has now moved its web site to a registered
web domain in the UK. You can find this new site by visiting
www.aio.co.uk

 The old site (www.amiga1.demon.co.uk/aio) will act as a forwarding
service to people who have the old address.

 I hope you all try this new site and see the speed improvements it
brings. It is now also alot easier to remember and will of course
attract alot more readers.

 The latest issue has just been released today (24.4.99) and is
already online for downloading. Our last issue featured an interview
with Petro Tyschtschenko which was very successful and is still online
to be read. You can download the latest issue (issue 23) from our site
by following the links online.

 Now that we have a proper website the site will be used to let the
readers get more involved with the site instead of just using it as
the latest issue downloading point. Some of the new features online
include ALL the interviews to ever feature in AIO, all the latest
readers letters we receive online, a global Amiga survey soon to be
launched plus lots lots more like lists of all the product reviews we
have done with issues numbers and scores to make it easier to find the
issue with a review of something you want to know about.

 I would like to thank some people who without, this registered site
would not be possible and people who have helped in the process of
getting to this stage. Firstly I'd like to thank all the editorial
team of AIO, past and present who have helped me bring a publication
to many readers all over the world. I would like to thank Chris Brown
for hosting the current site, even though he did slow on updates a bit
to the end and also to Andrew Crowe who created the web site which I
have hacked to bits and added various areas. I would like to thank
Conor Kerr who will be getting the registered domain for me and the
work he has done to bring it to life. Last but not least I would like
to give great thanks to the people who believed in AIO enough to
donate which without again we would not be seeing the domain today,
these great people are, Malcolm Harnden, Ian Urie, Stuart Walker,
Andrew Cashmore, Paul Steadman, Gerald Hobbs and Raynald Le Moing.

From Andreas R. Kleinert:
Hi,

 this is just a small press information on my PPC programs.

 Recent tests have shown, that the latest versions of
 nearly all of my PPC programs - including SView/PPC and
 the akDatatypes - do perfectly work together with
 Frank Wille's ppc.library emulation for WarpOS,
 starting with V0.6b.

 Unfortunately, WarpOS V4.0 only does include V0.6 - however,
 the newest version always can be found on Frank's homepage
 under http://home.owl.de/~frank/

 Using the ppc.library emulation yet is the recommended
 way of running my programs under WarpOS - although a few
 programs/modules already do exist as WOS versions (which
 mainly still are under development and not yet complete).

 SView/PPC and the akDatatypes do offer preferences options
 for switching between the two possible selections under
 WOS: the emulation will be utilized when auto-detection
 and the respective "ppclib emu" option are enabled.

 As a matter of fact, the "ppc kernel controversy" now
 is solved, at least regarding PerSuaSiVe SoftWorX products.

 Thanks for listening.

Genesis Odyssey PPC II - System Update - April 28, 1999

 We are pleased to announce that we have improved the Floppy Disk
handling capapabilities of our systems. Systems now ordered with High
Density Disk Drives will be using the Catweasel from Individual
Computers making them able to not only read and write Low and High
Density Amiga and PC disks, but will also be able to read and write
the XTRA-HD Format (2380 KB) as well as the ability to set up your own
drivers for Atari, Commodore 1581 and Mac DD Formats.

 We will also be offering the Catweasel ZII which includes all the
functionality of the Catweasel plus the Buddah providing 3 IDE
interfaces capable of 6 IDE/ATAPI devices (12 by putting IDE-Fix 1200
on each of the 3 IDE ports). The Catweasel ZII requires a ZorroII
busboard to be present in the system.

 We have also improved the IDE interface performance by including the
IDE-Fix 1200 adapter by Individual Computers. IDE-Fix 1200 allows for
the conenction of 4 IDE / ATAPI devices to the A1200, improves
performance and allows for compatibiltiy of ATAPI Zip drives and LS
120 Drives. You can increase the IDE Preformance with the IDE-Fix
Express allowing for transfer rates up to 5 MB/sec. and better
multitasking. IDE-Fix Express can easily be added to the IDE-Fix 1200
already part of the Genesis System.

-------------

 We do feel it appropriate to respond to comparisons made of our
Genesis Towerhawk vs. the AlienBoxer.

 It should be noted that we have dropped the Genesis Towerhawk from
our product line due to the confusion between it and our Odyssey PPC
system. In revamping our product line, we have moved to a
"Build-Your-Own" paridym letting users build their system exactly as
they'd like it. We have kept some pre-made systems for those that are
not familiar enough with the Amiga to build their own and systems that
are built as solutions.

 Let us state that we think the idea of a new Amiga motherboard is a
great idea and long overdue and that we support this effort for their
development on this motherboard. We are even interested in adding a
system to our Genesis line that would be based on this motherboard and
will seriously consider that possiblity when we can get our hands on a
Boxer motherboard.

 This has always been our company policy re. the Boxer board. Like
wise, it has been our policy to only adversise and market those
products that we can actually deliver. Using this as a basis, we are
designing systems using the A1200 as a motherboard. We think that this
offers some substantial advantages:

 o PPC Standard on our systems, 060 and 030 downgrades as an option
 o "No questions asked" compatibility
 o complete expandibility and modularity - add on only those parts and
 features you want
 o access to a huge and growing amount of A1200 expansion products
 o access to an established base of Zorro Card via our Zorro card
module
 o access to new and exiting CPU options as them become available,
 including the new G3 boards
 o access to PCI boards that will be connected to G3 accelerators
 o cost effective 24 Bit Graphics (8MB Permedia 2) with local bus to
CPU
 o Video Toaster Flyer compatiblity via Video Slot and Zorro card
modules
 o Amiga Magic Bundle included plus Personal Paint 7.1 and a full
suite of other applications
 o OS 3.5 like features built into pre-installed OS including
NewIcons,
 Internet Support, etc.
 o all drivers for hardware pre-installed in OS
 o huge amount of storage space - 6 x 5.25" bays, 4 x 3.5" bay, 1 x
2.5" bay

Regarding Price

Genesis Odyssey PPC II incl.

 o 060 50Mhz and PPC 160Mhz (we'll soon have the 060 clocked at 66Mhz
soon)
 o 16 MB, 3.2 GB HD, 40x CD

 All this for $1699.95 US .. thats more speed and Hard Drive space
than the Alien Boxer.

 To match the Boxer, we'd need to add a Zorro bus and a modem

 o Zorro Bus - $210 US
 o USRobitic v.90 Modem - $225 US

 You'll see that this makes the price of the Odyssey PPC II system
more than the Alien Boxer at $1795 US, but you've got PPC, a larger
Hard Drive and Faster CD including ASIMCDFS software. And the modem is
a high quality USRobotics, basically the best you can buy! Also, there
is really no need for the Zorro Slot card as in this configuration it
is not being used for anything so lets take it out.

 The Total Odyssey PPC II is now 1924.95. Just slightly more than the
Alien Boxer but with PPC, larger Hard Drive, a great modem and
everything else mentioned above.

 We haven't even yet talked about our experience and expertise doing
systems. Your Genesis system comes backed up by Randomize, Inc. will
long experience with all the manufactures involved plus our one year
parts warrentee.

 We're not saying that we have all the solutions and that the Alien
Boxer isn't appropriate in some situation, we simply suggest you
compare carefully.

 Having said that, we are always open to system suggestions. Please
email us at sales@randomize.com with your suggestions, comments,
questions, and orders.

The Amiga RC5 Team Effort ist durch PowerPC stärker geworden
Bereits 500 PPC-User helfen mit, bei The Amiga RC5 Team Effort den Code zu knacken! Jeder weitere User, der seinen Computer für das Amiga-RC5-Team mitrechnen lassen möchte, ist willkommen. Lesen Sie dazu auch die Pressemitteilung von Thomas Tavoly:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 29th 1999

The Amiga RC5 Team effort strengthened by PowerPC

As of today over 500 PowerPC equipped Amigas are participating in the
Amiga RC5 Team effort, or over one quarter of all Amigas participating.
This is a clear indication of where Amiga users go when they need more
power.

Combined with the announcements from Amiga Inc./International promising
PowerPC support in the upcoming update(s) to AmigaOS our path is clear: new
clients supporting WarpOS are already in development.

Naturally 68k users are not left out in the cold, a new 68k client with
a faster core is also being worked on. While this has run into some
difficulty due to a hardware failure, the situation is expected to be
remedied soon.

The RC5-64 effort is proceeding along well, the Amiga team is third largest
out of thousands (with over 1800 members and 3300 machines), and
consistently scores in the top five daily. We are currently ranked sixth
overall, and steadily moving towards the fifth spot. This gives the Amiga
some well deserved exposure, and hopefully in the coming months that will
only increase as Amiga is relaunched with an updated OS and major industry
support.

Future plans involve moving to open source development and more efforts,
starting with the addition of Optimal Golomb Rulers (or OGR) to the currently
running RC5-64 challenge, later anything you like on a plug-in basis. That
could entail anything from distributed rendering to research in the field
of diseases etc.

Everyone is cordially invited to join, with any kind of machine, though
one Amiga at least is appreciated. For a full explanation of what the
effort is about, where we are heading, how to participate and everything
from statistics to member listings, please visit the Amiga RC5 Team effort
homepage at http://distributed.amiga.org.

The Amiga RC5 Team effort is also providing a mailinglist as a forum for
the discussion on above topics and the effort in general.


Sincerely,

Amiga RC5 Team effort coordinator
Thomas Tavoly - rc5@amiga.cistron.nl

A.C.T.-Umfrage wird am 20.05.99 auslaufen
Die Existenz der Umfrage von A.C.T. auf http://www.act-net.com/news.html wurde den meisten Print- und Onlinemedien vor ausreichend langer Zeit bekannt gegeben. Jede Umfrage muß eines Tages beendet werden - Entscheidungen müssen fallen.
     Projekte, die bis zum Stichtag nicht genügend Stimmen erhalten haben, werden fallen gelassen. Sollte kein Projekt ausreichend Resonanz erfahren und sollte Amiga Inc nach wie vor jeden Kontakt vermeiden, wird A.C.T. ab Ende Mai 1999 keine Amiga Produkte mehr entwickeln, unterstützen oder vertreiben.
     Die existierenden Produkte stünden dann für dritte Parteien zum Kauf zur Verfügung (Rechte-Übernahme). (ps)

Thomas Raukamp: Erklärung zur Übernahme der Fever
Wie schon vor einigen Tagen auf der Homepage der Amiga Fever bekannt gegeben, haben wir mit sofortiger Wirkung dieses Magazin übernommen. Beide Zeitschriften sind mit sehr viel Engagement und Enthusiasmus in den Markt gestartet. Umso schöner ist es also, daß durch die Integration der Fever unter Leitung der amigaOS ein noch größerer Wirkungskreis erreicht wird und wir unsere Position am Markt im Sinne aller Amiga-Fans weiter ausbauen werden, um hier endgültig das tragende Medium dazustellen.
     Abonnenten der Amiga Fever erhalten in diesen Tagen die amigaOS automatisch per Post. Bitte haben Sie Verständnis dafür, daß die Abwicklung der Übernahme der Abodaten einige Tage in Anspruch nehmen kann, schließlich wollen wir vermeiden, daß die Leser, die bisher beide Magazine abonniert hatten, eine Doppellieferung erhalten.
     Sollten Sie weitere Fragen zu Ihrem Abo haben, schreiben Sie bitte an unseren Abovertrieb abo@amigaos.de, für allgemeine Fragen stehen wir unter unserer gewohnten eMail info@amigaos.de für Sie bereit.

Thomas Raukamp (ps)

Ich hab meine neues CD-ALBUM jetzt fertig. Es nennt sich "uNDEFINABLE TUNEs" und beinhaltet hauptsächlich selbstgemachte Trance-, House- und Hardcore-tracks. Alle Tracks sind ausschließlich auf dem AMIGA enstanden, und wurden mit OctaMED Soundstudio abgemischt. Auf meiner Homepage http://deltaray.webjump.com/ kann man sich von jedem Track einen Beispielsound runterladen, und selbst urteilen ;-)! (ps)

Der Gewinner der Hypercom 4+ ist Frank Paries aus Hattingen :-)
Herzlichen Glückwunsch Frank! Frank hat den entscheidenden Klick um genau 8.41 Uhr gemacht, hat einen Screenshot eingeschickt, der das dokumentiert und auf diesem Screenshot stimmt auch die Klickzahl des rechten Zählers mit dem seinerzeitigen Wert überein.
     Natürlich habe ich mich gefragt, wie es sein kann, daß insgesamt sieben Leute Screenshot eingeschickt haben, aber auch dafür gibt es eine Erklärung: WebHits hat eine Reloadsperre im Zähler eingebaut. Aus diesem Grund ist es möglich, daß jemand, der innerhalb einer bestimmten Frist mehrmals auf der Seite war, einen Zählerstand zu sehen bekommt, der von jemand anderem erzeugt wurde. (ps)

Der 100.000ste Besucher (maßgeblich ist der Zähler links unten) von amiga-news.de bekommt von VMC Kommunikation eine superschnelle Hypercom 4+ spendiert :). Es ist eine Schnittstellenkarte, die sich am A2/3/4000 betreiben läßt, 4 serielle Ports und 2 PC/AT Druckerports hat.

Eine tolle Idee von VMC, wie ich finde :-). Als Beweis muß der 100.000ste Besucher per eMail einen Screenshot mit Uhrzeit an petra.struck@online-club.de schicken. Bitte auch die komplette Adresse mit angeben. (ps)

Pressemitteilung: DCE lizensiert Phase5-Produkte
Frankfurt, 27.04.1999

Gute Nachrichten für alle Amiga-Anwender, die ihrem Rechner zu mehr Leistung verhelfen wollen: Die DCE GmbH aus Oberhausen, langjähriger Hersteller einer umfangreichen Palette von Hardware-Zubehör für AMIGA Computersysteme, und phase 5 digital products aus Oberursel, Entwickler und Hersteller leistungsstarker Prozessor-, Grafik- und SCSI- Karten für AMIGA-Rechner, geben hiermit den Abschluß eines Lizenzvertrages bekannt, der es der DCE GmbH ermöglicht, ab sofort eine Reihe von phase 5-Produkten, die aufgrund der Fokussierung auf PPC-Upgrades aus dem Programm von phase 5 genommen wurden, unter Lizenz zu fertigen und zu vertreiben. Es handelt sich dabei im einzelnen um die folgenden bekannten Produkte:
  • Blizzard 1220/4
  • Blizzard 1230-IV
  • Blizzard 1240 T/ERC
  • Blizzard 1260
  • Blizzard SCSI-Kit IV für Blizzard 1230-IV, 1240 und 1260
  • Blizzard 2040 und Blizzard 2060
  • CyberVision64/3D sowie Scandoubler dazu
  • Cyberstorm Mklll
Mit Abschluß dieser Lizenzvereinbarung wird die kontinuierliche Verfügbarkeit der 68k-basierten Prozessorkarten von phase 5 digital products, sowie der diversen o.g. Zubehörkarten, auf Dauer gesichert; damit wollen die beiden Hersteller auch ein Zeichen des fortgesetzten Supports fur den Amiga-Markt setzen. "Wir sind sehr froh, daß wir in der DCE GmbH einen Partner gefunden haben, der die Produkte fortführt, die wir aufgrund unserer Fokussierung auf die PPC-Linie aus dem Portfolio genommen haben, und der die technische Kompetenz sowie die langjährige Amiga- Erfahrung mitbringt, die Produkte auf dem gewohnt hohen Qualitätsniveau zu fertigen, den flächendeckenden Vertrieb zu gewährleisten und die Kunden optimal zufriedenzustellen" sagt dazu Wolf Dietrich, Geschäftsführer von phase 5 digital products. Thomas Dellert, Geschätsführer der DCE GmbH, ergänzt: "Durch diese Kooperation können viele Anwender jetzt wieder die leistungsstarken Produkte, die in den vergangenen Monaten nicht verfügbar werden, zu attraktiven Preisen beziehen, und ihre bestehenden Systeme so optimal aufrüsten und Up-to-date halten".

Die künftig von DCE unter Lizenz hergestellten Produkte sind im internationalen Testvergleich als vielfache Testsieger prämiert, und repräsentieren auch heute noch eine führende 68k- Beschleunigertechnologie für AMIGA 1200 und 3000/4000 sowie kompatible Systeme.

Meeting mit Jim Collas
Gestern fand in Frankfurt ein Meeting zwischen Jim Collas und Händlern, Entwicklern, Presse und Usergruppen statt. Jim Collas stellte sich der Amigaszene vor, informierte die Anwesenden ausführlich über die Strategie und Pläne zur Realisierung des AmigaNG, stand allen Rede und Antwort und konnte sich gleichzeitig ein Bild von der Szene in Deutschland machen. Er hat Anregungen und Vorschläge aufmerksam verfolgt und ist intensiv auf Statements einzelner eingegangen.

Ich habe Jim Collas als einen Mann erlebt, der sehr charismatisch ist und wirklich in der Lage ist, etwas zu bewegen. In seiner langen Rede spürte ich, daß er vom "Spirit of Amiga" 'infiziert' ist.

Mit KnowHow und Power geht er an die Verwirklichung seiner terminlich festgelegten Ziele, die klar strukturiert, aber auch revolutionär sind. Ein Mann mit Visionen, Weitblick und vor allem Kompetenz.

Ich hatte nach all den vielen Versprechungen der letzten Jahre das erste Mal das Gefühl, nun passiert wirklich was, es kommt Bewegung in den fast zum Stillstand gekommenen Zug Amiga. Ich glaube nicht zu übertreiben, wenn ich sage, daß wir uns auf eine phantastische Amiga-Zukunft freuen können. (ps)

Amiga Fever wird in die amigaOS integriert
+++ AMIGA-aktuell-Special +++
Amiga Fever wird in die amigaOS integriert. Hier noch das offizielle Statement von Malte Mundt auf der Amiga Fever Website:

Im Schlusswort von AMIGA aktuell 12/98 haben wir gewarnt, dass die scheinbar wieder stabilisierte Situation des Amiga-Zeitschriftenmarktes nicht unbedingt von langer Dauer sein muss. Jetzt scheint sich dies zu bewahrheiten:

Amiga Fever wird in die amigaOS integriert (27.04.99)

»Lieber Amiga Fever-Leser!

Im November 1998 gingen wir mit unserem neuen Magazin an den Start. Unsere Zielsetzung war klar: Eine neue Amiga-Zeitschrift sollte den muede gewordenen Markt beleben. Mit aktuellen News, objektiven Tests und lesenswerten Berichten konnten wir von Anfang an unsere Leser begeistern.

Zeitgleich mit der Amiga Fever hatte man beim Falke-Verlag ebenfalls die Zeichen der Zeit und die Notwendigkeit fuer ein neues Amiga-Magazin erkannt und so entstand die amigaOS, die sich ebenfalls immer groesserer Beliebtheit erfreut hat, seit sie erschienen ist.

Seit dem wurde viel Arbeit doppelt geleistet: Soft- und Hardware wurde hier und dort getestet, beide Hefte mussten layoutet, dann gedruckt und schliesslich ueber den Vertrieb in den Handel gebracht werden. Deshalb ist jetzt der Zeitpunkt gekommen, zusammen fuer unsere gemeinsamen Ziele einzutreten. Unter der professionellen Leitung des Falke-Verlags integrieren wir die Amiga Fever in die amigaOS.

So ist es moeglich, eine bessere Marktposition einzunehmen und effizienter fuer den Amiga und seine User einzutreten. Ich bin mir sicher, dass wir damit die beste Loesung fuer eine gesicherte Zukunft im Amiga-Zeitschriftenmarkt gewaehlt haben.

Ihr
Malte Mundt
Chefredakteur
