Guru Meditation accquires right of the Amiga version of Directory Opus Magellan
Press release: Gothenburg, Sweden, October 20th, 2004
Guru Meditation and GPSoftware are proud to announce that they have reached agreement on the acquisition of the exclusive, worldwide rights to Directory Opus Magellan for the Amiga platform from GPSoftware. This legendary file manager that started on the Amiga will finally be coming back in a new version in 2005!

Dr Greg Perry of GPSoftware said, "We have been searching for a reliable company to continue the development of Directory Opus Magellan for the Amiga for some years now. After some false starts, we are pleased to have licensed the Amiga product to Guru Meditation, where the ongoing development of the product is now assured. Guru Meditation and partners have some exciting plans. We look forward to seeing their new product and extend to them our wholehearted support for their efforts."

Andreas Loong of Guru Meditation said, "This is an invigorating new venture for us. We are very pleased to acquire the rights to this brilliant program, which for so long has been an essential for any Amiga user. Directory Opus Magellan is a file manager unlike all others. It is the essence, the very spirit of how computers should be used. From the very first release of DOpus in 1995, many Amiga users have seen the raw power provided by DOpus with its unique concept integrating Workbench Replacement Mode, File Management and custom functions in one package. All of these functions have been refined and polished into perfection and now is the time to bring this masterpiece back to the Amiga."

Guru Meditation has entered into a contract with a UK based specialist software firm which will be providing the porting work and implementing new features. Work has already begun to bring the sources up to date for the new AmigaOS 4 operating system.

Guru Meditation & GPSoftware Guru Meditation was formed late 2003 and started off very modestly as a reseller of Amiga equipment and AmigaOne hardware. In mid 2004 the decision was made to acquire the rights for Directory Opus to bring it back to the Amiga platform as the start of a new program of expansion to help kickstart the Amiga market back into life.
