Firefox-Port: Timberwolf Status-Update
Thomas Frieden has given an overview about the latest status of the Firefox port: The code which puts the results of the rendering engine to the screen now correctly works (screenshot) but mouse and keyboard inputs does not.

The completely new written routines are supposed to be more effective and 40% smaller than the previous version.

A new public trial version could be published soon. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Retro-Gaming: WHDLoad 17.0
With WHDLoad you can install games and scene demos on your harddrive which were published on disks. Additionally several incompatibilities with newer Amiga models were fixed. Changes since the last version:
  • chg: documentation about Snoop feature now explains in detail which cia registers are checked in which way (StingRay)
  • chg: the install script template function P_AskDisk is additional able to check for disks which contain a named file instead only by volume name
  • chg: the joypad emulation in kickemu 3.1 now supports a force option to disable the auto sensing of lowlevel.library
  • fix: kickfs.s now properly supports reading and writing to the same file handle if IOCACHE is used
  • new: support/detection of special HRTmon builtin WinUAE added (monitor must be entered one time before WHDLoad can see it!)
  • fix: when file for PreLoad was larger than the largest free memory block this could lead to an DOS error #205 after all remaining files have been preloaded, this bug has been introduced in version 16.9, issue #2154
  • chg: on option NoResInt/S WHDLoad checks and terminates if blitter is active on entering via a resload function
  • chg: trap hook now checks if vector is odd and aborts then
  • chg: if option NoMMU/S is active WHDLoad now more correctly checks the actual MMU setup and warns about translations of 0..3000
  • chg: amount of disassembled code lines increased (Psygore)
  • fix: output for disassembling of some instructions were corrected by Psygore, (moveq #-x; cmp/add/and/move/bset/bchg/... #$nnxx; bitfield with offset 0)
  • fix: crashes on M-Tec 630 boards without FPU fitted caused by the FPU detection inside WHDLoad fixed, board causes 'coprocessor protocol violation's instead of 'line-f emulator', thanks to Die BORG for lending the hardware
  • chg: there are separate Resload versions for 00-20/30/40/60 now, which enlarges the WHDLoad executable but saves memory at runtime (overlayed)
  • new: progress bar for Preload operation added, WHDLoad will remember PreloadSize itself as ToolType if started from the Workbench
  • fix: cache clear in MMU configuration routine added, should fix problems with issue #2094 and issue #2182 (Psygore)
  • new: dutch translation of documentation, thanks to Harold van der Waaij
  • chg: resload_Relocate now accepts upto 512 hunks (Don Adan)
  • chg: emulation of 'move sr,ea' in usermode on 68010+ is now also working if flag WHDLF_EmulPriv is active, this fixes problems with RoadwarsArcadia and FastBreakArcadia
  • chg: support for Cloantos AmigaForever 2011 kickstart 1.2 and 3.1-a500/a1200 roms added (Jan Zahurancik)
  • new: WHDLoad supports the compression file formats of CrunchMania with the resload functions resload_Decrunch and resload_Load- FileDecrunch (Psygore)
  • chg: the way WHDLoad checks for keyboard strokes (QuitKey, FreezeKey, ...) has been slightly modified, in earlier versions it has checked for keydown strokes, now it only reacts on keyup events; if the Slave checks itself for keyboard events the installed program may still quit on keydowns
  • chg: the ws_keydebug entry in the Slave structure is now ignored, the debug key must be explictly set via arguments
  • fix: it's now possible to use QuitKey/DebugKey=0 (Psygore)
  • chg: as long as the splash window is open pressing Esc will break the Preload process and quit WHDLoad
  • chg: pressing Space/Return/Enter will close the splash window and start the installed program immediate after completion of Preload
  • new: in Expert/S mode the splash window now contains some buttons to switch debugging related options of WHDLoad which gets saved/deleted in the icon if started from the Workbench
  • new: the Slave structure has been extended to allow configuration of buttons to be displayed on the splash window to control the ButtonWait/S and Custom1-5/K/N options to be able to configure existing Slaves the option Config/K has been added
  • new: using the option ConfigDelay/K/N the time can be specified howlong the splash window is displayed if there are buttons on it (Config/Expert)
  • chg: if SplashDelay/K/N is -1 a start button is added to the splash window and the window remains open until pressed
  • chg: the kickstart images will be searched also in the alternative path WHDCOMMON: (M.C.Battilana)

The code for the support of the MMU of a 68040 does not completely work in this version because it is reworked to support all MMU-features. THe function "resload_Protect" should work but "Snoop" will crash the computer. (cg) (Translation: dr)
