Microsoft (E-mail)

10 years Windows 95
On August the 24th, 1995 Windows 95 replaced MS-DOS with a simple to use graphical user interface and a fast system kernel. Contemporaneous Office 95 had been released and the Microsoft Network service (MSN) has been lauched.

Windows 95 was based on 32 bit technolgy and replaced the MS-DOS extension Windows 3.x. Thus, the PC evolved to an universal work tool and conquered the digital household. This version became the most successfull software of its time for business and private customers. The new features included the start button with its embedded menu, long file names and internet connectivity usind TCP/IP of the integrated MSN client. Thus, Windows 95 was anticipating many imortant developments. A similar big step for the IT will be the coming release of Windows Vista.

Today Windows, as a former concurrent system to the Amiga, plays an important role for the Amiga scene providing a base for the Amiga emulator WinUAE. (nba) (Translation: ub)

MorphOS 1.4.5 Free Edition for PowerUP Amigas

Five Year Anniversary - MorphOS 1.4.5 Free Edition for PowerUP Available

24th August, 2005 - The MorphOS development team would like to celebrate the five year anniversary of the first ever publically available MorphOS release by announcing the immediate availability of MorphOS 1.4.5 Free Edition for PowerUP accelerators by phase5 & DCE.

By releasing the latest end user version of MorphOS for PowerPC-equipped Commodore A1200, A3000 and A4000 computers, the OS is brought back to its origins. Prior to creating versions for the bPlan PEGASOS and various embedded hardware platforms, development started out on the forementioned computers by Commodore Business Machines and resulted in a first beta version to be released in August 2000.

For information about supported hardware configurations, installation instructions and the actual download location, please visit

Please note that the MorphOS Development Team is unable to provide direct end user support for this specific version of MorphOS. If you encounter any problems, please use the PowerUP forum on MorphZone to ask for help and support.

We sincerely hope you enjoy the Free Edition of MorphOS 1.4.5 and would like to welcome you soon as regulars on a MorphOS community website.

Thank you for your interest,
The MorphOS Development Team (cr)

AmigaOS 4: Drum-Computer RockBEAT 1.1
RockBEAT is a simple software drum machine (Screenshot) for AmigaOS 4. It is a tool for musicians that allows you to create drumming tracks. It can create multiple tracks, each one being 4x 4/4 measures with 16th notes. You can save individual tracks as wav files, or the whole thing as one big song. You can drop in your own 16bit 44100Hz PCM WAV samples in the drumsamples/ folder if you like. The new version 1.1 is out now including several fixes.

Changes in detail:
  • No more grim reaper alerts when starting then stopping playback quickly I removed an AbortIO() call that wasnt really needed.
  • Theres no more excess silence at the end of wav files for individually saved tracks.
  • Button graphics are freed up when quitting now.
  • All message ports are emptied and deleted when quitting. No more "unfreed signals" error messages now, and I think it has brought up stability a little.
  • Drum samples limit changed to 20. It used to crash after more than 10 samples were loaded due to a silly programming error. i.e. looping up to 20 times when there were only 10 available spaces in the array.
  • Adding new samples to the drumsamples/ folder will no longer make old projects invalid.
  • Better compatibility with some WAVs. RockBEAT used to assume a certain WAV header value was a always certain size, but I've found out it can be different.
  • I have included a cool cymbal sample to the default drumsamples/set.
The demo is restricted to 10 minutes. If you like it, you can purchase a keyfile from the author for $15 USD. (nba)

PBEM game: Tamar needs new land! (VI)
The Massive Multiplayer PBEM game 'Tales of Tamar' will be extended by another area of land. The following announcement is taken from the game's forum:

For the sixth time, we start our event 'Tamar needs new land!'. - Once again, all of Tamar has been settled, and new land has to be found for new realms.

Don't miss that opportunity! It will take place on September 1st, only 10 days from now. Start with other players under equal conditions, and show that your a contender for the rank of emperor!

Explore regions of Tamar that no man has set foot on before. Meet unique challanges like dragons, undead and other creatures, and prove yourself in the contest with other human players.

Hint 1:
Our price of 500 Euro for the first emperor among the realms created after January 1st 2005 has still not been claimed. (You'll find the detailed rules in the ToT forum).

Hint 2:
If you enter the keyword "Shareware" in the field for the serial number while registering, you can start playing for free. A turn fee will only apply once you got deeper into the game. Also please add the remark that you want to start on September 1st.

Hint 3:
Since the clients for Mac OS and Linux are also playable on the same world, we need some beta testers for these systems.

Wishing you a lot of fun,
with best regards,
Your ToT-Team & Wolfen (snx)

Genesi: Support for the AMCC 440EP Yosemite board (Update)
Press release Genesi is pleased to announce that it will provide under license the Pegasos hardware abstraction layer and IEEE 1275 compliant Open Firmware (HAL/OF) for the recently released AMCC 440EP Yosemite Board.

The Pegasos HAL/OF approach brings with it immediate GNU/Linux kernel support as well as support from a growing number Linux distributions, including Debian, Gentoo, YDL, Ubuntu, CruxPPC, Montavista and Fedora. An OpenSolaris PowerPC port is also underway. The Pegasos HAL/OF has been used and is being used to support PowerPC-based platforms from Freescale, IBM and now AMCC.

Genesi recently participated in the first European meeting of held at the Barcelona Super Computer Center. At the Event the Pegasos HAL/OF approach was discussed as a potential standard for PowerPC based boards to speed system enablement.

"Already, companies like Genesi USA Inc. are building PowerPC processor-based systems using the IEEE 1275 Open Firmware model to bring PowerPC technology, flexibility, and efficiency to the desktop, low-end server, home entertainment, and pervasive computing markets at an affordable price. The hardware abstraction layer of the PegasosPPC has been integrated into the mainline GNU/Linux kernel and includes an x86 emulation extension which allows generic PC-based components to be used."

The Pegasos HAL/OF approach enables the vast software resources currently available on the Open Desktop Workstation to be shared with other PowerPC-based platforms. The Open Desktop Workstation is a CHRP compliant platform based on the Pegasos and composed of standard PC components. The Pegasos HAL/OF provides a logical successor to the CHRP standard replacing hardware dependent code with API callbacks to an abstraction layer that provides a common interface to operating systems and/or applications as required.

Update: (18:51, 23.08.05, snx)
At you can find a photo and an article about the Yosemite board. (snx)
