Abschied
In seiner eMail faßt Marc Albrecht von A.C.T. die Ereignisse der letzten Jahre zusammen und erklärt anschaulich, warum er sich vom Amiga-Markt verabschiedet.

Subject: "Abschied"

Moin,

wenn ich gewusst hätte, wie verhasst wir sind... hätte ich schon früher
meinen Hut genommen :-)

Kurze Zusammenfassung:

Ende März haben wir einen detailierten, geschäftsmäßigen Brief an Herrn
Collas gesendet, da wir in der gegenwärtigen Situation des Amiga keine
Chancen mehr für zukünftige Projekte, geschweige denn aktuellen Support
sahen. Nach mehreren Wochen antwortete Collas zumindest, daß er die Mail
erhalten und bald persönlich beantworten wollte. Als Mitte Mai noch
immer nichts passiert war - obwohl wir eindeutig um eine Stellungnahme
bis Ende April gebeten hatten - haben wir nochmals eine Mail
abgeschickt, deren Erhalt Collas uns wiederum bestätigt hat.

Es ist bis heute nichts geschehen.

1997 hat Herr Tyschtschenko auf der Computer97 Support für zukunftsoffene
Projekte auf dem Amiga versprochen - auch in finanzieller Form, in
erster Linie aber Information, Kooperation und technischer Support. Auch
1998 wurde diese Zusage nochmal wiederholt. Bis heute hat - meines
Wissens - niemand solchen Support erhalten (vielleicht bis auf Haage und
Partner), obwohl NACHFRAGEN danach aufgetreten sind.

1997 wurde ein neuer Amiga mit neuer Hardware und komplett neuem OS
angekündigt. Um Applikationen für dieses System schreiben zu können
brauchen Entwickler neben einigen Jahren Zeit detailierte Informationen
- nicht nur über die APIs (die oft nicht im Vorfeld definierbar sind)
sondern gerade Aussagen über Art des Systems (Kernel), voraussichtliche
Hardware-Fähigkeiten etc.

Es ist nichts geschehen.

1998 war dann irgendwann die neue Hardware kein Thema mehr, es ging nur
noch um ein auf Neutrino (von der Firma QNX) aufgesetztes OS. Dieses OS
sollte NICHT kompatibel zu Neutrino sein - was wiederum Entwicklungen im
Vorfeld unmöglich machte, denn solange man nicht weiß, welche Parameter
für eine Portierung zu ändern sind, kann man nicht sinnvoll für den
zugrunde liegenden Kernel entwickeln. Anfragen nach genaueren
Spezifikationen wie z.B. verwendete Standards (MSFC oder andere) wurden
nicht beantwortet. Ende 1998 sollten Entwicklungsplattformen zur
Verfügung stehen.

Es ist nichts passiert.

Anfang 1999 gab es dann zum wiederholten Male einen Wechsel an der
Führungsspitze von Amiga Inc. Der neue Mann (Collas) versprach endlich
den Entwickler-Support, den man von einer serösen Firma erwartete.
Gleichzeitig reagierte er auf Anfragen jedoch mit der Ausflucht, er habe
so viel zu tun, da er so viele Anfragen bekäme, daß er nicht jede
einzeln beantworten könne. Das ist wohl kaum nachvollziehbar, da es auch
in Amerika arbeitslose, jedoch sehr fähige PR Leute gibt. Amiga selbst
hat für die Entlassung eines der fähigsten Köpfe im Bereich
"Evangelismus" bzw. Öffentlichkeitsarbeit vor die Tür gesetzt: Fleecy
Moss. Jeder darf erwarten, daß, wenn fähige Leute entfernt werden, die
verbleibenden die Aufgaben mit übernehmen.

Es ist nichts geschehen.

A.C.T. hat seit Mitte der 80er Jahre für Kunden Hard- und Software -
auch für den Amiga - entwickelt. Wir haben stets großen Wert auf die
Zusammenarbeit mit unseren Kunden gelegt, waren und sind aber
selbstverständlich auch auf normale Kooperation mit den Herstellern bzw.
Zulieferern von Produktkomponenten angewiesen. Wenn wir eine neue
Hardware entwickeln, brauchen wir normalen Support seitens der
Hersteller der verwendeten Chips. Diesen Support gibt es von vielen
Firmen - von manchen nicht. Also können wir nur Chips von denen
verwenden, die einen Support für kleine Entwickler zur Verfügung stellen
- die Produkte anderer Hersteller, die uns für unwichtig halten, können
wir entsprechend nicht verwenden. So konnten wir 1997 z.B. nicht unsere
geplante Soundkarte auf YAMAHA Chipsätzen realisieren.

Wie oben beschrieben war und ist es uns also unmöglich, eventuell eine
fernen Tages erscheinende zukünftige Amiga Systeme zu unterstützen.
Anders als Amiga Inc haben wir keine "Bank" (O-Ton Tyschtschenko) namens
Gateway im Rücken, die uns über Jahre hinweg die Gehälter zahlt, bis wir
endlich mit Entwicklungen loslegen dürfen. Wir müssen jetzt und heute
arbeiten und Geld verdienen.

Was bliebe übrig, um die Zeit bis zum Erscheinen eines neuen Amiga
Systems zu überbrücken (und bis auf diesem System die ersten
Applikationen verkaufsreif wären bzw. der Markt groß genug ist, daß er
Firmen tragen kann)? Die "Classic-Plattform".

Wie einigen bekannt ist, sind wir im letzten Jahr von einigen
Amiga-Händlern ziemlich im Stich gelassen worden. Die dabei entstandenen
finanziellen Verluste haben sich leider im Laufe der Zeit zu sehr
summiert, so daß wir nur noch auf feste Vorbestellung hin, teilweise mit
Vorauskassen-Unterstützung produzieren wollten. Dies ist LEIDER von den
Händlern nicht angenommen worden.

Eine seltsame Situation, da manche der selben Händler, die uns
Vorauskasse für Produkte NICHT zahlen wollten, eben diese Vorauskasse
von ihren Kunden für UNSERE Produkte verlangt haben.

Mit anderen Worten: die Produktion (und auch die Weiterentwicklung)
unserer Produkte kostete und kostet monatlich nennenswerte Beträge.
Durch die Verluste und die - verhältnismäßig - minimale Gewinnspanne
(die von den Händlern natürlich noch gedrückt wird) hat sich
mittelfristig ergeben, daß Vollzeitproduktionen nicht mehr finanzierbar
sind. Hinzu kam, daß wir mit Zulieferern erhebliche Qualitätsprobleme
hatten und haben, so daß zu viele Hardwareprodukte in Nachbesserungen
lange Zeit brach liegen. Rechnungsmäßig hat sich der Verkauf eigener
Amiga Produkte also als "Hobby" herausgestellt, das nicht geeignet war
und ist, allein eine Firma tragen zu können. Diese Erfahrung dürften
mittlerweile alle Amiga-Hersteller bestätigen können. Wir haben jedoch
weder die Resourcen noch den Ehrgeiz, auf MacIntosh oder PC
Hardware-Produkte anzubieten, zumal in unserem Fachbereich die
Konkurrenz global und sehr hart ist.

Für Amiga-Verhältnisse waren wir in der Lage, unsere Produkte akzeptabel
auf dem Markt zu plazieren. Wie wir mehrfach zugesagt haben, werden wir
sowohl unsere Hardware als auch unsere Software Produkte weiterhin
supporten. Das heißt: wir arbeiten PRIVAT weiter an unseren Amigas und
werden - soweit unsere FREIZEIT dies zuläßt - an den meisten Produkten
weiter entwickeln. So wird z.B. demnächst das Digital-IO Modul für die
Prelude erscheinen und es sind noch weitere Samplitude Releases geplant.

Wir müssen aber, auch, um Zeit für neue Produkte zu haben, einen
"offiziellen" Schlusstrich ziehen. Wir können nicht jahrelang behaupten,
weiterhin jederzeit Produkte zur Verfügung stellen zu können, wenn
tatsächlich solches Vorgehen mit finanziellen Verlusten verbunden ist.

Wir waren Amiga-Fans. Die Erfahrungen mit Amiga in den letzten drei
Jahren haben uns das meiste unserer Begeisterung für diese Plattform
genommen. Daß wir dennoch privat an unseren Amiga weiter arbeiten,
sollte eindeutig genug zeigen, daß der "echte" Amiga eine
Begeisterungskraft erzeugt hat, die sogar die Katastrophen der letzten
Zeit - und den "offiziellen" Abschied vom System überlebt.

Auch unsere Sponsoring-Aktionen, die Jobbörse und die bestehenden
Kooperationen führen wir auf kleinerer Basis fort.

Abschließend sei mir die Bitte an diejenigen gestattet, die mir ihren
Hass und Frust so brutal per EMail ins Gesicht schleudern müssen: ich
finde es peinlich zu sehen, daß Ihr euch nicht einmal traut, eure EMail
Adresse als Absender einzutragen. Ich habe allein in den letzten 24
Stunden über 40 Flames ohne korrekten Absender erhalten - wenn all
diejenigen statt dessen an der Umfrage teilgenommen hätten: was für ein
Ergebnis wäre dabei herausgekommen!

Wir mussten in der Vergangenheit mehrere Sofwareprojekte vor
Fertigstellung abblasen, da die Raubkopierer-Situation auf dem Amiga ein
Release zum finanziellen Fiasko hätte werden lassen (denn ein Release
bringt Support-Anforderungen mit sich und verlangt weitere
Entwicklungen). Das Beispiel des MPEG Layer3 Encoders zeigt IMHO, daß
heute mehr als je zuvor die vielen EHRLICHEN Amiga-Anwender unter den
(wenigen) schwarzen Schafen zu leiden haben, die mit Raubkopien oder
illegalen Ports besser zu leben glauben als mit offiziellen, legal
erworbenen Lizenzen. Diese Situation besteht auf jeder Plattform. Aber
auf dem Amiga ist sie tödlich.

Marc Albrecht, am 21.05.1999

AmigaScene Mai-Ausgabe online
Die englische Ausgabe wird auch schon langsam fertig. Bisher haben wir leider nur 2 Übersetzer, die sich allerdings mächtig ins Zeug legen (danke Steve und Tom).

Unser Aufruf, um Übersetzer zu bekommen ist ungehört verhallt. Könntest Du ihn vielleicht nochmals veröffentlichen? Mache ich, siehe unten. Und gibt es noch andere Leute, die diesen Aufruf auf ihre Seite stellen wollen?

!!WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
I'm working together with 8 other people on an Amiga online magazine in Austria, called "AmigaScene" http://www.amigascene.com
After one very successful year (magazine is only in German for now), we are going multilingual :-)
Our first goal is to produce parallel to the German issue an English one, other languages might follow. The magazine is non-profit of course, we do it because we like the Amiga and want to share knowledge with the community.
My task is to find people who are willing and able to translate articles from German to English, or write articles of their own in English or German. Also if you want to support any other language, we would be interested.
So please, if you are interested in joining us, or know someone who might help us, please contact me:
robert.niessner@vexcel.co.at SUBJECT: Translator or SUBJECT: Writer. (ps)

Ronny schreibt:
bei Eternity gibt es seit 17.5.99 die Amiga Format CD Nr.40. Als Highlight dieser CD kann man wohl das Linux-APUS für PPC mit Installation (!) ansehen. Für 15,- DM habe ich mir das Teil gleich bestellt - da kann man eigentlich nichts falsch machen. (ps)

Wo ist AmigaOS.com geblieben?

Ich wollte mal wieder so durch net surfen. Aber... wo ist AMIGAOS.com geblieben? Die besten Ideen und Bilder einfach weg? "this Server is forbidden" (T-online).
Ich weiß es leider auch nicht, aber vielleicht weiß es ja einer der Leser?

Nachtrag vom 21.05.1999:
Marc Albrecht schreibt dazu:
Das ist ein Server Problem. Der Webmaster dort hat offenbar kein korrektes index.html erstellt oder ein falsch eingestelltes ".htaccess" im Hauptverzeichnis. Einfach mal den Webmaster anschreiben!
Danke, habe ich gemacht, schaumermal, was dabei rauskommt.
Die eMail habe ich an webmaster@amigaos.com geschickt, kam aber soeben als unzustellbar zurück :(. Eine andere eMail-Adresse ist mir nicht bekannt.

Editor's Thoughts and Introduction:

 Interesting things this time, and we're even going to talk about
ourselves for a bit in this Introduction. First, please look below for
answers to all those nagging questions about SoftLogic and PageStream,
which simply has to be one of the all time hottest Amiga programs.
Good news ... and a pleasant surprise or two!!
 Amiga is making good on its promise to keep the community better
informed. Below you will find a huge amount of information from Amiga
covering activities during the month of May. This was sent directly to
"Amiga Update" as part of Amiga's increasing outreach effort. This is
one of the best signs we've seen in some time and we applaud it!
 We also have a surprise of our own this time, about "Amiga Update".
In the early days, when this publication was nothing more than a
private mailing for a small group, we didn't make a big thing of
archiving issues. As a result, many of the early issues/notes were not
available to us when we started our archive web site. Well, thanks to
a longtime reader and his careful preservation of old files, we've now
added 13 old issues, never seen before by most readers, to the web
site. These include the first "issue" - really just a group mailing -
announcing the death of Commodore, and the first mailing which used
the "Amiga Update" name and an actual header. Take a look on our site
- we think Amiga history buffs especially will enjoy these.
 We believe there are no copyright concerns with these issues, but
since they were originally intended for private distribution only,
we'll be very open to any concerns anyone may have.
 We have also received a copy of the one missing issue from 1996,
number 960503, from the same source. That one will require a bit of
cleaning up to remove it from the message in which it's embedded, but
it should be on the site with a few days.
 We hope you enjoy the old messages in those issues, and the new
information in this one.

 What has become of SoftLogik. I have tried for weeks to contact them
by phone. All I get is a tape recording. E-mail messages are returned.

Alex,
 Almost nothing we've ever seen has produced the kind of mail the
seeming disapearance of SoftLogic has! This should please them very
much. The answer is below, our lead story this issue.

Dear Brad,

 I wanted to let you know that your e-mail..update has been a very
important aspect for me in keeping up my enthusiam for the amiga. I
live in an area (probably like many) that has no close or even
relatively close dealers. I am the only one of about 7 people left in
my immediate area using the amiga at this time and it certainly gets
quiet when you "don't know what to do". Like many... I'm forced to do
my own hardware changes etc. and that is pretty scary.

 I haven't written before now but I wanted you to know how much your
efforts and others involved is appreciated!!

Sincerely,
Nelson :-)

~~~~~~
Nelson,
 ... and we certainly appreciate your kind words. We'll keep "Amiga
Update" coming as long as there's a reason for it to exist.

Dear Brad,

 Now that I've had my second pint of tea, and I'm a bit more awake :)
here is some more gen which might help fellow Amigans.


 I bought an external ZIP drive about 3 years ago and it suffered the
click of death (and trashed 2 of my ZIP disks in the process).


 So I contacted the Iomega helpline (for the UK it's in Dublin) who
after checking my drives ser no and symptoms immediately organised a
replacement ZIP drive which will be here within 15 days, FREE !!!!!
not even any postage, also included is free return postage for the
faulty drive wia UPS.


 They also confirmed with me how many disks had been trashed by the
faulty drive, so, I suspect they may also replace those as well.

Regards

mikdom

~~~~~~
Mikdom,
 We're familiar with this problem on Zip drives, and suspect many
Amigans are also - maybe to their horror. Your information should help
a lot.
 Thanks,
 Brad

Dear. Mr. Webb,

 I found it very disheartening to compare Mr. Collas claims to want to
prove himself to the Amiga community with his list of community
activities. From the absence of any reference to AmiWest99, it would
appear there is no interest in west coast US market by the new chief
executive. I haven't seen since his open letter which would indicate
anyone from Aimga will be present or that there is any support for the
only west coast Amiga show this year. It will be interesting to see if
the European market is big enough to support the operation since it
would appear parts of the US market already have been written off.

Sincerely,
John

~~~~~~
John,
 Interesting observations and understandable, especially given the new
Amiga's history so far. We'll be watching closely to see if Amiga does
attend AmiWest99 and any other North American shows. At this point, I
find it hard to believe Amiga would write off any large market.
However, stranger things have happened ...
 Brad

19 May, 1999
Dear Amigans,

 April was a very busy month for Amiga with much activity and good
progress. I received over 1200 emails from people around the world, I
met with key representatives of the Amiga community in Germany and the
U.K, we added to our executive staff, we established relationships
with key technology partners, and we finalized our 1999 product plans.

 The amount of emails I received from the Amiga community has been
overwhelming. Most of them were emails of support and encouragement
while many others gave me suggestions and input on technology and
products. These emails have been wonderful. They are uplifting,
insightful, interesting, and fun to read. People in this community
have a great personality. Many were short emails of encouragement but
just as many went on for several pages listing insights, suggestions,
and opinions. Thank you very much for your emails of support. They
have been tremendously encouraging to the Amiga executive team and me.
There were, of course, also some emails sent by Amigans who are
frustrated by the situation. These emails were also valuable in giving
me insight into the mistakes of the past so that I could avoid them as
we press toward the future. Please keep the emails coming.

 I apologize for not responding to all of the email sent to me. I have
personally responded to over 600 emails but was unable to keep up with
the volumes. I want to assure you that I read every email sent to me
and that they play an important role in defining our future plans. I
will continue to respond to as many emails as possible on a personal
basis. This brings me to the main subject of this month's letter:
communication. It is important that we set up an effective process for
communicating with the Amiga community. Emails and requests for
meetings are overwhelming Amiga executives at this time. This volume
of communication is very encouraging but I am concerned that we can't
personally respond to every one of them and it will become frustrating
to the community.

 We are working on plans to improve communications between Amiga and
the community. These plans will consist of multiple programs
including: the current executive update, an email response team, a new
Amiga Advisory Council, polls on future product features, better
monthly user group communication, and improved communication to the
Amiga press. Detailed information on all of these programs will be
posted on our web site in the next several weeks. In addition to
keeping the community up to date on Amiga activities, the main goal of
these programs is to involve the community in setting future Amiga
plans. All of us need to work on this together to make sure we are
setting plans that will help the community and allow Amiga to drive
the next computing revolution.

 One of the planned communications programs is a new "Amiga Advisory
Council" or AAC. The idea for this program came from my discussions
with people in the Amiga community. It is difficult to get thousands
of people involved in our planning process so we need to establish a
more manageable forum. The plan is to set up an advisory council
consisting of people that are viewed as leaders in the Amiga
community. Members of this council will be "elected" by the Amiga
community. We are currently working on the details of the "election"
process. This council must represent all major constituencies of the
Amiga community so that we can get a full set of concerns and inputs
regarding future Amiga plans. We will set-up special message boards,
email lists, and meetings allowing the AAC to communicate effectively.
Information on AAC meetings and decisions will be communicated to the
Amiga community. Keep watching our web site for updates on this
program. We will also make sure information gets published to Amiga
magazines and user groups.

 In late April I traveled to Germany and the U.K. to meet with
representatives and leaders of the Amiga community to discuss Amiga's
future plans and get the community's help in setting these plans. I
apologize to the people that did not have the opportunity to
participate in these meetings but I had to keep the meetings to a
manageable size. There were about 30 to 40 people in each country
representing developers, dealers, distributors, user groups, and
press. I think that these meetings were very informative and
productive. They will allow me to optimize our future plans while
taking the requirements of the Amiga community into account. To give
you an example, we spent a considerable amount of time talking about
how to bridge the community from the current Amiga platform to the
next generation. The current Amiga platform has several years of
useful life remaining but people are not investing in it because it is
dated and the next generation is around the corner. One suggestion is
to port the next generation AmigaSoftTM Operating Environment (OE) so
that it runs on a current Amiga configured with a Power PC expansion
card. This would not be an optimum configuration but it would extend
the life of current PowerPC Amigas. We are looking into this
possibility and will keep you updated.

 On a personal note, I had a wonderful time in Germany and the U.K.
The trip was both productive and very enjoyable. The trip was packed
with excellent food and good people. I really enjoyed meeting with
people from the Amiga community. After six years of working with
executives in the PC industry, it is a breath of fresh air to work
with people that have so much passion and enthusiasm about what they
believe in. I especially enjoyed the extended conversations in the
bars and pubs. These tended to get even more passionate and creative.
To those of you who participated in the events, I thank you for making
my trip both productive and enjoyable. In case you are curious, the
most challenging part of my trip was sitting still while Petro drove
me on the autobahn at 240 km/hour. I thank god for solid and stable
German automobiles and good German beer.

 Before I end this letter I would like to cover a few more topics that
came up frequently in emails sent to me. First, I would like to
clarify our hardware product plans. Amiga is planning to come out with
a next generation multimedia computer in late Q4 of the year. This
computer will have a unique architecture, a great operating system,
awesome 3D gaming performance, and advanced multimedia features. I am
confident that this computer will meet your expectations for a great
next generation Amiga. Unfortunately, we can't disclose details of the
new computer yet since we are under non-disclosure agreements with our
technology partners. We also need to be careful about alerting our
competition to our plans. One thing I can say is that the technology
partners we are working with are extremely excited about our direction
and technology. There are Amigans in all major technology companies
and they are eager to support us in driving a new computer revolution.
These partners include some major technology and component companies
in the computer industry. We should be ready to disclose more at the
World of Amiga and AmiWest shows in July.

 The new Amiga multimedia computer will also support a home networked
"information appliance" environment that will allow networked devices
throughout the house access to the power and features of this
computer. I need to clarify the term "information appliances" which is
becoming a popular term in the computer industry. "Information
appliances" are not digital toasters, refrigerators, and ovens with
LCD displays. They are devices such as wireless LCD tablets, Internet
terminals, game machines, and digital set-top boxes. These devices
will all be connected together through a single network and will be
integrated into a single comprehensive operating environment. This is
the reason why we use the term "operating environment", or OE, to
describe our new software rather than operating system. Our software
is much more than the underlying operating system.

 In addition to the full multimedia computer described above, Amiga
will also develop reference desigs for a variety of "information
appliance" companion devices such as wireless LCD tablets. Our goal is
to enable a full home computing environment rather than just a
computer. We will encourage others to develop and ship
Amiga-compatible computers and information appliances. To help clarify
our plans to the Amiga community, we are releasing our initial product
concept to the Amiga press to publish in the next issues. I hope this
helps clarify our product plans. We will continue to disclose details
as they become available and as is appropriate.

 The second topic that I would like to cover is Amiga support for
developers. The Amiga development community is important to us and we
will be taking an active role in support Amiga developers. We are
evaluating plans for financial support as well as in-depth technical
support. We will communicate more about this plan within 60 to 90 days
when we also start releasing more technical information for
developers.

 I have also updated the "major activities" sub-section under the
"executive update" section on our web site. This will give you some
more detail on the status of Amiga programs so I encourage you to read
it. We have also added a top 10 questions web page to the "executive
update" section. This page will answer the top questions asked in
emails sent to me.

 In closing I would like to say that I am more excited then ever about
the opportunities for Amiga and the Amiga community. It has been a
long wait but the Amiga community is still the greatest community in
the computer industry and the time is ideal for a new revolutionary
architecture and platform. I will keep you posted on our progress and
promise to disclose as more details as soon as possible and
appropriate.

Sincerely,
Jim Collas
President, Amiga

SoftLogik on the move!

 As reported online earlier, SoftLogik is moving. The building in St.
Louis was closed February 24th, 1999. I finalized the purchase of a
new location in Wisconsin on Tuesday, March 9th, 1999.

 SoftLogik's new home will be located on the same piece of ground that
I will be living on. The only problem is that this new building is not
complete. This is expected to take a few more months, and then we can
get the permits, and then the phone lines and address. (Don't ask,
long story about local red tape will result).

 Until then, we now have cellular phone service, and we are going to
try running the customer database off of a generator between the hours
of noon and 4pm central time. We will try and answer the phones at
other times than that, but if you leave a voice mail message we will
get back to you by the next business day.

 During our down time, evidently our ISP failed to maintain our web
site. It was entirely my fault, but that doesn't make it any less
disastrous. While in the process of doing everything else, I managed
to track down a new ISP with a good reputation and a fair price. For
those who saw SoftLogik disappear from the radar, we are sorry, but
reports of our demise are untrue!

 What about the development schedule? Good news actually. Without
phones, mail and email to answer, I've been getting a lot of
PageStream4 and Windows code fixed. I took all the source code and
dumped it to my new laptop. I've been working on the kitchen table of
my friends house where I had been living the first month. It took me a
couple days to get familiar with the new stuff, but I'm back at it
now. And the nice thing is this machine is _fast_. I used to be able
to take a Coke break (don't really drink much coffee) during a
compile. Now a full compile only take about 10 minutes, and an
incremental compile is done before I can catch my breath. Now I can
work in my truck, on a lawn chair, at McDonald's, the real estate
office, where ever life takes me while I get SoftLogik settled

 Thanks for your understanding, and thanks for being a customer!

PageStream 4.0

 With all the work that has gone on internally for the PageStream
Windows final release, we realize that getting 4.0 finished is a top
priority. PageStream4.0 is the first major update to PageStream in
over 3 years. We have been saving your feature requests, looking at
the current industry "leaders" (we use that term loosely around
here!), and thinking of ways to improve an already great product.
Obviously, the trick has been to try and deliver the features needed
and still keep the same easy of use that puts us heads above the rest.

 Features such as indexing, table of contents, complex page numbers,
and figure numbering and figure tables make long documents a snap.
Editable kerning pairs, tracking tables, and hanging punctuation make
PageStream's typographic capabilities even more outstanding. Doing
color work? Than you will impressed with the color trapping of objects
and text. Trying to generate both print and online materials? Let PDF
and HTML export help you. PageStream4 has something new to offer in
every step creating anything from color pages to technical drawings to
newsletters to books.

When will it be available?

 We have already passed our initial target release date due to
personal circumstances. However, since the end of February progress
has been steady and rapid. We are now expecting to ship PageStream4.0
by August. This is a conservative date, but we figure no one will get
upset if we release the program early. The feature set is final, the
interface is frozen, and the manual is well underway. Any customer who
purchases an upgrade or full copy of PageStream 4.0 before it is
released will be able to download an advance copy of the program from
the Internet, and will receive a copy of xxx along with the final
version of PageStream4.0. Not to mention our endless gratitude for
supporting and participating in the development of the best desktop
publishing program!

 What makes you so sure it won't take 2 years, like 3.0 did, to get it
"right"?

 Unlike PageStream3.0, we are building upon the core code.
PageStream3.0 was a complete rewrite from the ground up. Every line of
code was rewritten. On the other hand, PageStream4.0 is built on top
of the PageStream3 code. We laid a solid foundation in PageStream3. We
are building on to it. In fact, PageStream3.4 had greater impact on
feature reliability with the change to the entire undo function than
the features added in PageStream4.0.

OK, I'm sold. How much?

 For existing owners of PageStream3.3, the upgrade price to 4.0 is
$75. PageStream3.1 and 3.2 registered owners can upgrade to 4.0 for
$95. This includes the program on CD-Rom, full online help, and a new
manual. When ordering, please include your name, address, email
address, registration number, method of payment and a daytime number
where you can be reached. Place your order today!

PageStream 4.0 new features include:

   o Native Indexing
   o PDF export
   o Multilevel chapter/page numbering/names (ie 6.8.1)
   o Hilight Page Number/Data/Time etc to edit
   o Defined styletags & variables at chapter level
   o Native signature printing (many pages on 1)
   o Business card/label printing (many copies of a page on 1)
   o Configurable FPO size
   o HTML text import/export
   o Definable default text attributes
   o Fonts/Styles in use toggle
   o Local page guides
   o Layers
   o Drag & Drop text
   o Find & Replace improvements
     - insert special characters
     - wildcards
     - attributes
   o Trapping
   o Automatic before and after paragraph rules
   o True smallcaps
   o Table of contents generation
   o Figure numbering
   o Table of figure generation
   o Paragraph numbering
   o Definable Kerning Pairs
   o Definable Tracking Tables
   o Optical alignment/Hanging punctuation
   o Edit mask in place
   o Page Setup for spreads/range of pages
   o Bookmarks
   o Collect for output
   o Lasso select
   o Distributed on CD-Rom
   o and much, much more!

PageStream 3.4

 This will be the last minor update for PageStream3 Amiga. Now don't
take this as the last version of PageStream as some magazines have
reported, since we are announcing PageStream4 as well. PageStream3.4
fixes a few obscure but difficult to fix bugs, and adds a couple much
needed features. Early versions will be available to all 3.3 owners
and the final release will be posted in the PageStream3 Amiga secure
ftp site. Updates will be made available as we go. This version will
be available for free to all registered 3.3 users as our way of saying
thanks for being so patient.

The 3.4 features include:

 A special recreation area called "Olympic Town" is to set up at Emory
University in Atlanta on Saturday, May 22nd. This is being done in
conjunction with the Special Olympics-Georgia Summer Games.

 In 1997, Amiga Atlanta, Inc.(AAi) filled the multimedia void at
Olympic Town left behind by IBM some time earlier. It did not take
long for AAi to become one of the most popular exhibits there. In
fact, last year, at the request of a representative for the Special
Olympics Committee, AAi's exhibit remained open three hours after all
other exhibits in the area were closed. This year, AAi will become the
first computer user group ever to honored by the Special Olympics. At
a reception usually reserved for honoring major corporate sponsors,
AAi will be presented with a special plaque by the organization's
executive director for its outstanding contribution to the success of
Olympic Town.

 AAi's Olympic Town responsibility is to provide Amiga computers for
computer games and multimedia fun for the special athletes, their
families and friends. I invite Amiga user groups, developers and
retailers to join with AAi in making a tremendous impact on the crowds
that visit our exhibit. You see, we want to pass out "goodie bags" to
our visitors as well. Please help us to fill these bags with
Amiga-related promotional items - key chains, balloons, refrigerator
magnets, T-shirts, caps, mugs, etc. We would like to pass out at least
100 goodie bags. Whatever you can send will be greatly appreciated.
Send your contributions to:

Amiga Atlanta, Inc.
Attn: Olympic Town
P.O. Box 49103
Atlanta, GA 30359-1103

If you have any questions, pleaase email your questions to

 Bill McEwen, "Marketing and Software Evangelist" from the Pacific
Northwest Amiga office in the USA, visited our computer club (Pacific
Northwest Amiga Association - PaNorAmA) general meeting on Tuesday,
May 4, 1999 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He had seen my
meeting announcement on the User Group Network (UGN) mailing list, and
decided to make an unannounced visit. After distributing a few Amiga
souvenirs (Boing beach balls, two types of key-chains, flashlights,
Amiga music CDs, and an Amiga mug for the certain club president), he
gave a discussion about the direction and goals of Amiga. There was
also a question and answer period. Our club is grateful for having
Bill McEwen visit, since special club events are sometimes difficult
to create.

 By the way, he mentioned that the audited number of Amiga clubs is
significantly less than those in the club databases. Are these
databases out of date, or is there a difference of opinion as to what
constitutes a "true" Amiga club?

Regards,
Chris Sterne

 Now there are rumors claiming that Jim Collas is postponing the

better to hear it from the official voice, here it is:

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.

1 May 99

 GVP - once famous for really nice hardware - have been very quiet
lately to say the least. But they are obviously not as dead as one
might have thought. A look at the last page of the latest issue of
AmigaOS (rather young German print magazine) shows a GVP ad that does
not only feature some 68k based accelerators, genlocks, GSS+ sampler
etc. but also an amazing announcement...

 Apparently they are developing a PPC board! It reads:

         Attention !!!!!!!!!
         We are developing a PPC accelerator for the Amiga.
         Planned are cards for A1200, A2000 and A3/4000.
         CPU: G3 (PPC 750 512/1MB)
         Peripherals: In discussion are
                      UWSCSI and graphics
                      Decision will be made
                      2nd Q 99
         Memory:      Synchronous DRAM
         Available:   4. quarter 1999
         Further details in the next issue

Now that's what I call news. :)

FYI: - It's on the back of the May issue, not that of April...
     - Yes, that's 9 Plings in the headline.
     - No, there is no confirmation on the GVP(-M) website yet.

PowerStation for ImageFX now Shipping

 Nova Design, Inc., producers of the award winning and best selling
ImageFX package are proud to announce that PowerStation, volume one,
the first package of PowerPC modules for ImageFX is now shipping.

 PowerStation is a package of ImageFX modules designed to work
directly with the PowerPC as a coprocessor. This speeds up the
specific modules up to ten times the speed of the same module running
on a native 68060 processor. In many cases the effects become nearly
real-time!

 PowerStation premiered to record crowds at the Amiga '99 show in St.
Louis and became the 'must-have' item of the show with preorders
greatly exceeding expectations!


PowerStation Specifics

 The PowerPC effects are for use with ImageFX 3.2 or higher only. This
first volume of modules includes the following effects, which have all
received the PowerPC treatment. The first five modules were originally
announced and premiered at the show - by release we have now added
three more!

 Bubble - creates multiple bubbles over your selected image. You can
control the animation and optional color of the bubbles easily. Create
an undersea effect or psychedelic champagne bubbles!

 Fire - one of ImageFX's most popular effects. Fire can create
flickering candle flames, gas-stove flames, raging forest fires and
more. All parameters can be animated or controlled through a single
slider.

 Clouds - recently added to ImageFX, the Clouds effect can create
amazing multi-layered fractal clouds. It can also be used to create
fog or smoke over images, simulated explosions, or even seamless
textures of landscapes with cloud patterns animating across them.

 Liquid - this is an endlessly fascinating effect that distorts your
image as if it were on water. You can create funhouse mirror
distortions or unique video transitions with this effect.

 FXForge - based on the same formulas used in Adobe Photoshop's Filter
Factory™ package, FXForge can create an infinite number of custom
special effects using mathematical formulas. Color effects, distorting
effects, lighting effects are all possible with this amazing engine.
It remains fully compatible with the thousands of effects available on
the Internet for Adobe's Filter Factory™.

 Gaussian Blur - the cornerstone of many image processing tricks and
depth of field effects for videographers, this PowerPC version of
Gaussian Blur will now allow incredibly fast optical blurring.

 JPEG Loader/Save - one of the most popular graphics formats to ever
come along, JPEG images are often a fraction of the original image's
size, and are used commonly on the Internet. In the past this size
savings was at the cost of slow loading and saving times. Now these
versions load and save so fast you may have saved in the time it took
you to click your mouse!


Special Preorder Pricing

 'PowerStation' is available on diskette for $99.95 and is available
from your favorite Amiga dealer. Outside the US contact Oberland in
Germany or Wizard/Compute in the UK.

 If you wish to order directly at full retail you can also fax your
order to (804) 282-3768 or mail it to Nova Design, Inc., 1910 Byrd
Avenue, Suite 204, Richmond, VA 23230

 'PowerStation' works on any Amiga equipped with a PowerUP supported
PPC accelerator with ImageFX 3.2 or higher installed. WarpUP with the
new PowerUP compatibility should also work as well.

       N E W T E K :   C O N V E N I E N C E   U P G R A D E

 NewTek is pleased to announce a new install version of our 4.2 and
3.5 software. The new install consists of one CD and one floppy
diskette. For the first time, LightWave 3D 5.0 for the Amiga will be
included in the 4.2 software suite. To distinguish the release from
previous editions, we have designated the release as the "4.3
Convenience Upgrade." This release is available beginning April 2,
1999.

The Best of Both Worlds

 The 4.3 Convenience Upgrade puts our best Toaster/Flyer software on
one CD and Floppy. Users will need a CD-ROM drive with driver software
in order to use the new install set. If you have a Flyer and have the
CD-ROM hooked up to the Flyer, you will need controlling software such
as AsimWare 3.9.

 The 4.3 Convenience Upgrade consists of the following:

 o 3.1 Toaster Software with LightWave 3D 3.2 and LightWave 3D 3.5

 o 4.2 Toaster/Flyer Software with LightWave 3D 4.0 and LightWave 3D
   5.0

 o BigFoot PC FlyerDrive Utility

BigFoot

 BigFoot is a PC based program (It DOES NOT INSTALL on an Amiga) that
will allow you to hook a Flyer drive directly to a SCSI controller on
a PC and copy a Flyer Clip to the System Drive of the PC. Lightwave 3D
and Aura can access the clip and process the clip to the system drive.
The processed clip can then be copied back onto the Flyer Drive.
BigFoot is downloadable for free from our FTP site, but since this is
a Convenience Upgrade, it seemed appropriate.

 Before the release of the 4.3 Convenience Upgrade, the cost to
upgrade from 3.1 Toaster software to the current 4.2 Toaster/Flyer
software was $350. Lightwave 3D 5.0 was priced at $295. Now, you can
get all these on one CD and one floppy, that will install in all
situations, at a much lower price.

Minimum System Requirements

 o For 3.1 software: Workbench 2.1 or higher, 120 MB of free hard
drive space for the Video Toaster software, 9 MB of RAM.

 o For 4.2 software: FPU, Workbench 2.1 or higher, 350 MB of hard
drive space (we recommend more), 2 MB graphics RAM (also referred to
as "Chip RAM"), 16 megs of system RAM.

 This is a Convenience Upgrade, meaning that the software itself has
no changes, but is simply now more conveniently packaged, and with a
few additions that make running both versions on one system easier for
the user. In particular, the icons which run the software have been
modified to set the proper libraries in place when the software is
run. This is because the 3.1 and 4.2 software versions use different
support libraries for the CG.

 Benefits of the 4.3 Convenience Upgrade The complete contents of our
two best versions of the Video Toaster software are now on one CD. A
Video Toaster owner can now have both the linear-editing wizardry and
compatibility of 3.1, as well as advanced versions of LightWave 3D,
ToasterPaint, CG, and the storyboard "slideshow" playback capability
of 4.2.

 LightWave 3D 5.0 is included as standard with the Video Toaster
Software for the first time.

 Users with 1.0 and 2.0 software can now upgrade their software at the
least expensive price ever offered by NewTek on an upgrade from those
early versions.

 Users of 3.1/3.5 can now have their software available on one
conveniently installable CD. When needed, they may even copy just one
or two files at need, instead of having to perform a complete 45+9
disk install anytime one file develops a problem.

 3.1/3.5 users also get 4.2 at the lowest price it has ever been
offered to 3.1/3.5 owners, with LW 5.0 included as well.

 4.2 software owners get the latest version of their software on a new
CD, with the 3.5 software included, and the lowest cost upgrade to
LightWave 3D 5.0 that we have ever offered 4.2 owners.

Pricing

 We are offering the 4.3 Convenience Upgrade at the following price
structure:

 o Registered 4.x owners may purchase CD and Floppy only for $ 99 (No
 Manuals).

 o Registered 3.x owners may purchase CD, Floppy and the 4.x Manual
for $159.

 o Registered owners of 1.0 or 2.0 may purchase the 4.3 CD, Floppy,
4.x manual and 3.x Manual for $ 199.

 Video Toaster Manuals are available individually for $ 99.95 each.

 LightWave 3D 5.0 manuals are not included with the above, but may be
purchased with the above packages at half price, for $ 49. If
purchased separately, they are $ 99.

 Shipping and handling will be added to the above prices.

 Customers who wish to order may call NewTek Customer Service at
1-800-TOASTER, or send email with your phone number to
43upgrade@newtek.com.

VMC


HyperCOM goes UNIX
In wenigen Wochen ist es soweit, endlich wurde ein Kunde gefunden, der auf seinem Amiga ein stabiles Linux (APUS) System laufen hat und sich zutraut, die für die HyperCOM-Karte benötigten Treiber zu schreiben.

Was wir nun brauchen, sind fleißige Betatester, die entweder unter APUS oder unter LinuxM68k mit Ihrer HyperCOM neue Treiber testen wollen. Wenn Sie daran Interresse haben sollten schreiben Sie uns bitte direkt eine eMail.

Was den meisten bisher nicht aufgefallen ist, fast alle HyperCOM's werden schon von NetBSD für Amiga unterstützt. Selbst in einem Draco funktionieren alle Karten und Treiber ohne Probleme. Wenn Sie sich für dieses äusserst stabile und amigafreundliche Unix interessieren sollten, schauen Sie doch einfach mal hier nach.. NetBSD Amiga.

Mit diesen Treibern werden die HyperCOM-Karten in allen wichtigen Amiga Umgebungen wie keine andere Karte nahtlos unterstützt. (ps)

RC5-Team vom Amiga-Club im BTX & Internet
Schon seit Dezember 1997 rechnet das Amiga-Club RC5-Team fleißig mit, um den 64-Bit-Schlüssel zu knacken. Es werden immer noch Mitstreiter gesucht. Wer sich bisher noch nicht dazu entschließen konnte, mitzurechnen, weil alles zu kompliziert in englisch erklärt wird, sollte sich die Hilfe zur Installation von Myzar in Deutsch ansehen. Dort wird genau erklärt, worum es geht, wo Sie die nötige Software bekommen und wie sie konfiguriert werden muß. Wer beim AC-RC5-Team mitrechnen möchte, kann sich bei Wolfgang Czepan anmelden. Fragen zum RC5-Team-Effort werden im Amiga-Club Forum gerne beantwortet. (ps)

MAY LETTER FROM JIM COLLAS

19 May, 1999
Dear Amigans,

April was a very busy month for Amiga with much activity and good progress. I received over 1200 emails from people around the world, I met with key representatives of the Amiga community in Germany and the U.K, we added to our executive staff, we established relationships with key technology partners, and we finalized our 1999 product plans.

The amount of emails I received from the Amiga community has been overwhelming. Most of them were emails of support and encouragement while many others gave me suggestions and input on technology and products. These emails have been wonderful. They are uplifting, insightful, interesting, and fun to read. People in this community have a great personality. Many were short emails of encouragement but just as many went on for several pages listing insights, suggestions, and opinions. Thank you very much for your emails of support. They have been tremendously encouraging to the Amiga executive team and me. There were, of course, also some emails sent by Amigans who are frustrated by the situation. These emails were also valuable in giving me insight into the mistakes of the past so that I could avoid them as we press toward the future. Please keep the emails coming.

I apologize for not responding to all of the email sent to me. I have personally responded to over 600 emails but was unable to keep up with the volumes. I want to assure you that I read every email sent to me and that they play an important role in defining our future plans. I will continue to respond to as many emails as possible on a personal basis. This brings me to the main subject of this month's letter: communication. It is important that we set up an effective process for communicating with the Amiga community. Emails and requests for meetings are overwhelming Amiga executives at this time. This volume of communication is very encouraging but I am concerned that we can't personally respond to every one of them and it will become frustrating to the community.

We are working on plans to improve communications between Amiga and the community. These plans will consist of multiple programs including: the current executive update, an email response team, a new Amiga Advisory Council, polls on future product features, better monthly user group communication, and improved communication to the Amiga press. Detailed information on all of these programs will be posted on our web site in the next several weeks. In addition to keeping the community up to date on Amiga activities, the main goal of these programs is to involve the community in setting future Amiga plans. All of us need to work on this together to make sure we are setting plans that will help the community and allow Amiga to drive the next computing revolution.

One of the planned communications programs is a new "Amiga Advisory Council" or AAC. The idea for this program came from my discussions with people in the Amiga community. It is difficult to get thousands of people involved in our planning process so we need to establish a more manageable forum. The plan is to set up an advisory council consisting of people that are viewed as leaders in the Amiga community. Members of this council will be "elected" by the Amiga community. We are currently working on the details of the "election" process. This council must represent all major constituencies of the Amiga community so that we can get a full set of concerns and inputs regarding future Amiga plans. We will set-up special message boards, email lists, and meetings allowing the AAC to communicate effectively. Information on AAC meetings and decisions will be communicated to the Amiga community. Keep watching our web site for updates on this program. We will also make sure information gets published to Amiga magazines and user groups.

In late April I traveled to Germany and the U.K. to meet with representatives and leaders of the Amiga community to discuss Amiga's future plans and get the community's help in setting these plans. I apologize to the people that did not have the opportunity to participate in these meetings but I had to keep the meetings to a manageable size. There were about 30 to 40 people in each country representing developers, dealers, distributors, user groups, and press. I think that these meetings were very informative and productive. They will allow me to optimize our future plans while taking the requirements of the Amiga community into account. To give you an example, we spent a considerable amount of time talking about how to bridge the community from the current Amiga platform to the next generation. The current Amiga platform has several years of useful life remaining but people are not investing in it because it is dated and the next generation is around the corner. One suggestion is to port the next generation AmigaSoftTM Operating Environment (OE) so that it runs on a current Amiga configured with a Power PC expansion card. This would not be an optimum configuration but it would extend the life of current PowerPC Amigas. We are looking into this possibility and will keep you updated.

On a personal note, I had a wonderful time in Germany and the U.K. The trip was both productive and very enjoyable. The trip was packed with excellent food and good people. I really enjoyed meeting with people from the Amiga community. After six years of working with executives in the PC industry, it is a breath of fresh air to work with people that have so much passion and enthusiasm about what they believe in. I especially enjoyed the extended conversations in the bars and pubs. These tended to get even more passionate and creative. To those of you who participated in the events, I thank you for making my trip both productive and enjoyable. In case you are curious, the most challenging part of my trip was sitting still while Petro drove me on the autobahn at 240 km/hour. I thank god for solid and stable German automobiles and good German beer.

Before I end this letter I would like to cover a few more topics that came up frequently in emails sent to me. First, I would like to clarify our hardware product plans. Amiga is planning to come out with a next generation multimedia computer in late Q4 of the year. This computer will have a unique architecture, a great operating system, awesome 3D gaming performance, and advanced multimedia features. I am confident that this computer will meet your expectations for a great next generation Amiga. Unfortunately, we can't disclose details of the new computer yet since we are under non-disclosure agreements with our technology partners. We also need to be careful about alerting our competition to our plans. One thing I can say is that the technology partners we are working with are extremely excited about our direction and technology. There are Amigans in all major technology companies and they are eager to support us in driving a new computer revolution. These partners include some major technology and component companies in the computer industry. We should be ready to disclose more at the World of Amiga and AmiWest shows in July.

The new Amiga multimedia computer will also support a home networked "information appliance" environment that will allow networked devices throughout the house access to the power and features of this computer. I need to clarify the term "information appliances" which is becoming a popular term in the computer industry. "Information appliances" are not digital toasters, refrigerators, and ovens with LCD displays. They are devices such as wireless LCD tablets, Internet terminals, game machines, and digital set-top boxes. These devices will all be connected together through a single network and will be integrated into a single comprehensive operating environment. This is the reason why we use the term "operating environment", or OE, to describe our new software rather than operating system. Our software is much more than the underlying operating system.

In addition to the full multimedia computer described above, Amiga will also develop reference desigs for a variety of "information appliance" companion devices such as wireless LCD tablets. Our goal is to enable a full home computing environment rather than just a computer. We will encourage others to develop and ship Amiga-compatible computers and information appliances. To help clarify our plans to the Amiga community, we are releasing our initial product concept to the Amiga press to publish in the next issues. I hope this helps clarify our product plans. We will continue to disclose details as they become available and as is appropriate.

The second topic that I would like to cover is Amiga support for developers. The Amiga development community is important to us and we will be taking an active role in support Amiga developers. We are evaluating plans for financial support as well as in-depth technical support. We will communicate more about this plan within 60 to 90 days when we also start releasing more technical information for developers.

I have also updated the "major activities" sub-section under the "executive update" section on our web site. This will give you some more detail on the status of Amiga programs so I encourage you to read it. We have also added a top 10 questions web page to the "executive update" section. This page will answer the top questions asked in emails sent to me.

In closing I would like to say that I am more excited then ever about the opportunities for Amiga and the Amiga community. It has been a long wait but the Amiga community is still the greatest community in the computer industry and the time is ideal for a new revolutionary architecture and platform. I will keep you posted on our progress and promise to disclose as more details as soon as possible and appropriate.

Sincerely,
Jim Collas
President, Amiga
