Compiler: vbcc 0.9f, sponsored by Individual Computers
vbcc ist ein C-compiler written by Volker Barthelmann (compiler core) and Frank Wille (Amiga specific adaptions). The compiler supports AmigaOS 3.x, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, PowerUp as well as WarpOS. "It supports ISO C according to ISO/IEC 9899:1989 and a subset of the new standard ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (C99)." Frank Wille gave thank to Jens Schönfeld (Individual Computers), who now sponsors the m68k-AmigaOS port of the compiler. He wrote: "This does not only help us to continue supporting and improving this port but it also allows us to relax the terms of use for the Amiga-68k community. Everyone may now freely use vbcc to develop 68k-AmigaOS code for commercial as well as non-commercial usage."

News in vbcc 0.9f:
  • Changed licenses concerning commercial usage for AmigaOS/68k
  • Power-of-two optimizations
  • Warn when truncating constants
  • Warn on hexadecimal escape sequence overflow
  • Fixed some shortcut-optimzations that were calculating an expression in the target type even if that was larger due to casts
  • Fixed -deps dependency generation for including local header files
  • New option -no-cpp-warn to turn off all preprocessor warnings
  • Fixed gcc-compatibility of #pragma pack() and documented it
  • Fixed bug with CSE trying on non-scalars
  • New config files for residentable programs and minimal startup codes (e.g. aos68kr and aos68km)
  • m68k: Struct copy was using byte-copy also for aligned data
  • m68k: Some addressing mode fixes with Dn.W displacement
  • m68k: Constants in -sd mode are put into the code section by default and into the small data section when -const-in-data is specified
  • vclib/atari: Fixed problem with receiving a trash-character on stdin
  • vclib/amiga: Include missing cia protos and inlines
  • vclib/amiga: New startup code and linker support for residentable programs
  • vclib/amiga: More C99 math functions
  • vclib: New target m68k-kick13 (Kickstart 1.x with 1.x OS headers)
  • vclib: New target m68k-jaguar (Atari Jaguar)

Hyperion attacking Cloanto's Amiga trademarks on a broad front (update 2)
It looks as if Cloanto's registration of the 'Amiga' mark filed in January in the USA will be contested by Hyperion: After the Belgium based company's attempts to register its own trademarks 'AmigaOS' and 'AmigaOne' failed, Hyperion now filed a request for extension of time to file opposition against Cloanto's mark. This is usually the initial step when trying to file opposition, so the United States Patent and Trademark Office is now listing Hyperion as a potential opposer. more... (cg/dr)
