MorphOS 3.2: Panel-Objects / No Warp3D-support for R300-boards
By reworking the Ambient pictogramm menus for MorphOS 3.2 by Stefan 'Kronos' Kleinheinrich, now so called panel-objects can be used. Three of such objects have been made available in the MorphZone (Screenshot): from the left to the right you can see a time display, an animated Elephant and a monster.

Nicolas 'Henes' Sallin confirmed a bad news: The warp3d.library and therefore all Amiga games which access it, cannot benefit from the TinyGL-R300-driver since the rave3d.library is not developed further any longer. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Trevor Dickinson explaining the failure of the AmigaOS 4 Netbook
In October 2011, Steven Solie from the OS4 team announced a netbook for AmigaOS 4 for a price "between 230 and 300 Euro". That same day Ben Hermans and Hans-J÷rg Frieden from Hyperion delivered some additional information, but there were no official statements since then.

In April the British computer magazine Micro Mart published an interview with Trevor Dickinson from A-EON (PDF), during which the possibility of an AmigaOS 4 Laptop or Netbook was adressed:

Dickinson explains that they had a closer look at the LimeBook - the very same hardware many people assumed to be the base for the announced AmigaOS Netbook back in 2011. After a detailed cost analysis - hardware engineering, porting the OS, driver development, licence fees for AmigaOS and branding, importing the hardware - they realised that even when producing batches of 1000 units they wouldn't have been able to get the end user price below 580 Euro.

This, in combination with the very weak CPU, prompted A-EON to abandon the project and to look for other solutions. When the interview was discussed on amigaworld.net, Solie finally posted another statement about the project, apparently without having read the article in question: "official word from Hyperion is that the original Netbook project is on hold. Nothing has changed yet". (cg) (Translation: dr)

Internet over parallel port: plipbox 0.3
With Christian 'lallafa' Vogelgsang's plipbox Amigas without many extensions can go online. The Arduino-based adapter can be connected to the parallel port and provides a connection to the Ethernet-port of the Arduino board. The magPLIP-protocol is used.

Version 0.3 includes updates of the firmware and of the Amiga driver which introduces a MAC-Bridge. (snx) (Translation: dr)

AmigaOS 4: WLAN-driver atheros5000.device 1.4
With the atheros5000.device a network board driver for AmigaOS 4 is available for WLAN-PCI-boards (54 Mbps, 802.11g). The WPA/WPA2-encryption as well as WEP are supported. PCI-Express-boards may also work but have not been tested.

For AROS and MorphOS this driver which was written by Neil Cafferkey is already available. A port for AmigaOS 3.x probably will not succeed due to the DMA-requirements.
