SN-ListDatei V1.0 available
Today a new Amiga tool by Steffen Nitz has been released: SN-ListDatei V1.0. It shows a list of all files from one directory including all subdirectories in a single window.

This tool is very handy for e.g. HTML designers who work with several subdirectories. The file list might be saved as text file or send to the printer. There are also overview statics available which show the numer of files and directories and their sizes.

Download page:

Furthermore The Altdeutschland coins page has been maintained. The Pommern Stralsund page became the most extensive page because it will be the Author's favorite. The page contains pictures of six differnt coins from the middle age from the city of Stralsund (located at the coast near the isle Rügen in today's Mecklenburg-Vorpommern). (nba) (Translation: ub)

22.Jun.2005 renews menu structures
On Tuesday, June the 21st 2005 a minor structural update has been made to website to provide a more intuitive navigation and a better page overview.

The upper and lower menu bars as well as the right menu bar are affected from these changes. Now at the upper menu there are only links related to contentual areas which enrich the daily news. Among thme there are the links for the ANF, the Amiga Link Directory, the bulletin board, comments and the glossar. At the lower menu the internal subpages were bundled, such as the netiquette, the news archive, the guest book, the masthead or the contakt page. At the right, temporary menu at the start page important Amiga related links are located as well as links to our sponsors and in future there will be an expanded article search section added.

Links which were removedfrom the old menu structures were merged into "other sources" and "sub pages".

During the next months the team will concentrate to the English section and is aimig to establish the service at a new domain with not only the news service but also a mostly interactive knowledge and test data base

If you have any suggestions or comments regarding these changes the team is always pleased to get to know your ideas. (nba) (Translation: ub)

Risc OS: Firefox port released
Risc OS teh operating system which was formerly delivered with Acorn's Archimedes RiscPC homecomputers and is - just like the AmigaOS and alikes - on it's long and stoney way to a new hardware.

Risc OS suffered to a problem which should be well knwon to all Amiga folks: Decent websites were only limited usable with the available browsers (at least six deiffernt ones!) due to lack of proper Javascript or CSS support.

Since yesterday Risc OS users may use a beta version of Firefox. In a recent thread at the author Peter "chocky" Naulls describes some of the occuring problems and tehir solution while doing the port. (cg) (Translation: ub)

The 7448 is the first ppc using Freescale'e new e600 core which has a 1 MB 2nd level cache (doubled in comparision to the 7447), an improved Altivec unit (out of order sequences) and a faster external bus (up to 200 Mhz) (Out-of-Order-Befehlsfolge), but it keeps pin and binary compatible with it's predecessor (MPC7447).

Due to the newly introduced 90 nanometer process and other detail improvements the MPC7448 will not only consume less energy than the 7447 but also allow to go for higher clock rates. Production from October on will reach 1.7 Ghz. (cg) (Translation: ub)
