amiga-news.de: our policy regarding app stores
With Amigakit's Amistore and Pascal Papara's indieGO!, app stores have entered the Amiga scene. As news items about new or updated titles exclusively available in an app store always equal advertisement for the actual store, it is in the vendors' interest to generate many small updates to achieve as much coverage on news sites as possible - which would result in software from app stores getting more coverage on amiga-news.de than applications distributed through other means.

This is why amiga-news.de staff decided to use a more conservative approach for app store titles than we do when covering software distributed through traditional websites. While we usually try to cover any and all software updates or new releases in a timely manner, in case of software from app stores we will try to evaluate if the actual improvements or the usefulness of an application are newsworthy.

To help with that process, we tried to formulate a set of guidelines for our approach to app stores. For transparency's sake, these guidelines will be published here as well. The staff would appreciate feedback and further suggestions - after all, this is a first for the team as well.
  1. The app store itself will only be covered in case of updates of the client software, or - depending on the amount of such updates - in case of major updates. Just like traditional stores, internal changes to the shop system, special offers, competitions and the like will be ignored.
  2. Commercial titles added to an app store's inventory will only be covered if they're exclusively available through said app store.
  3. Free software added to an app store's inventory will only be covered if (a) the software in question is exclusively available through said store (b) can be downloaded by new customers without any financial commitments and (c) is deemed useful and/or important enough be the staff (see below).
  4. Updates for free or commercial software exclusively available in an app store will only be covered if the team considers them useful and/or important enough.
Usefulness of an application/importance of a particular update:

If updates for app store software get released, customers should be automatically notified via the app store's client software, which means it is no longer necessary to cover every single bugfix update in a news item. To prevent app store owners from trying to increase coverage by releasing lots of smaller exclusive titles or updates, amiga-news.de might ignore smaller releases that would have usually been covered as part of a weekly news item about Aminet uploads or something like that.

Retro-Gaming: WHDLoad 18.1
Using WHDLoad you can install games, scene demos and intros from cracking groups on your harddisk that were not compatible with anything but floppy disks. In version 18.1 an update check was added:
  • New: update check added: when a network connection is available WHDLoad will check via a HTTP request if a newer version exists on the WHDLoad webpage for the used Slave and WHDLoad, supports a proxy with optional basic authentication via option Proxy/K, to disable any network access the option NoNetwork/S can be used uses sha256 implementation by Robert Leffmann, thanks!
  • Changed: dumping loaded files using bit #31 set in the disk number via resload_DiskLoad will now use the offset in ExpMem in the created file name, also the written files will go through the file cache to avoid recurring switches to the operating system
