FriendUP: Franšois Lionet is working on an AMOS port
FriendUP is an Amiga inspired operating system which runs in the web browser (amiga-news.de reported). In a statement on Facebook, one of the developers, the French programmer Franšois Lionet, has told that in his spare time he is working on a port for AMOS of FriendUP.

He wrote: "AMOS code (or ascii AMOS code) will be converted into Javascript calls to AMOS library, that will render the display in a Canvas. You will also be able to program directly in Javascript and call the AMOS library. It will accept real AMOS files, and convert images into PNGs, sounds into MPG or WAV etc. opening the door to the immense collection of AMOS PD games and apps." (snx) (Translation: dr)

SDL support for Hollywood: RebelSDL 1.0
Press release: Summer's over and Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are back on your screen with a brand-new plugin for Hollywood: RebelSDL. RebelSDL is a plugin for Hollywood that allows you to use SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) from Hollywood. This makes it possible to write scripts that utilize the host system's graphics hardware to create high-performance, butter-smooth 2D animation that is produced completely in hardware by the GPU of your graphics board. This leads to a huge performance boost over the classic Hollywood graphics API which is mostly implemented in software for maximum portability and compatibility. Especially systems with slower CPUs (like the Raspberry Pi) will benefit greatly from hardware-accelerated drawing, scaling, and transformation offered by SDL. more... (cg/dr)

Trademark disputes: yet another party wants to own "Amiga" (Update)
In the US and Germany, the registration for the "Amiga" trademark already expired. It's still a registered mark in the EU until May next year, but nobody really expects the current owner to ever do something with that registration again. As a result, Hyperion Entertainment (AmigaOS 4) and Cloanto (Amiga Forever) started fighting for various Amiga marks earlier this year. more... (cg/cg)

Workbench history: Why was "Disk doctor" so spectacularly bad at its job?
In an article at auf amiga.org, Olaf 'Olsen' Barthel has explained, why "DiskDoctor" - known from the first generation of the Workbench - worked so bad and could not successfully repair disks. Since the middle of the 90ies Barthel has been working with the source codes of AmigaOS and was involved developing AmigaOS 3.5, 3.9 4.0 and 4.1. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Emulation of Sam 460 using QEMU in development
According to a mail on the QEMU-PPC mailing list Zoltan Balaton is working on an emulation of a Sam-460 using QEMU. In the first status report (middle of August) he described that AROS as well as MorphOS could boot, but finally failed due to different problems. Balaton could not test AmigaOS, because he does not own a copy of AmigaOS 4.1 besitzt.

The emulator QEMU emulates or virtualizes alot of computers or processors. If the host system has a suitable processor, QEMU does not have to emulate it - so Balaton's project could succeed in emulating Sam 460 operating systems under different PPC hardware - e.g. Apple-Hardware .

On a common Windows-PC, QEMU would have to emulate the PPC-CPU, but would not have to emulate the complex custom chip emulation, which is currently required to run AmigaOS 4 "Classic" under WinUAE. (cg) (Translation: dr)
