Amiga-Emulator: FS-UAE 2.5.16dev
Frode Solheim's FS-UAE for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and BSD is based on WinUAE and can be completely controlled with a joypad. Since the last stable version released in March (2.4.1), so far only developer versions have been released.

Changes in FS-UAE 2.5.16dev:
  • Fixed legacy uaegfx_card option
  • Make sure early configuration warning messages are displayed in GUI
  • Fixed parsing of memory options
  • Fixed infinite loop when more than one HDF/CD was used with UAE controller
  • Fix for A1000 boot issue with full kickstart ROM
  • Fixed patching of Cloanto A500/A4000 roms (broke in an earlier dev ver)
  • Specify rpath for OS X executable (so plugins can find libs from fs-uae)
Known bugs:
  • The PearPC fallback may not work properly. Please make sure you are using the qemu-uae plugin (check in fs-uae.log.txt that it is loaded properly) if you’re having problems
  • AmigaOS 4.1 w/Picasso IV => sometimes weird frame rate (~36 FPS)
  • When starting FS-UAE from FS-UAE Launcher, accelerator flashs ROM writes are not persistent because the launcher uses a new copy every time
  • Booting CD32 with CD inserted works, but inserting later, or eject + re-insert does not seem to work right now

Workbench enhancement: BetterWB 3.8
Similar to AIAB, AmiKit or AmigaSYS, BetterWB is a collection of Workbench enhancements for AmigaOS 3.1, which are useful but rather simple and therefore require low hardware configuration. Changes in version 3.8:

  • Charmap is a tool that helps dealing with all the characters of a given font
  • Prepcard+ helps the user in managing other hardware on the PCMCIA port (Wifi, ethernet, modems and card readers)
  • Ned is a commodity that lets you close the active window by pressing the "Esc" key
  • Freewheel is a commodity that helps you in using the mouse wheel comfortably
  • Updated HardWiz: phase5 68060.library to latest v46.15
  • Updated icon.library to 46.4.385
  • Updated pfs3aio to v2.3 (28-05-2014)
  • HDToolBox is back (some users reported incompatibilities with HDinstTools)
  • WhichAmiga now properly works with ACA accelerators (modrobert´s fix)
  • EnvHandler is now offered as an option, and a warning message is displayed upon first install of BetterWB
  • Tweaked Magic Menu Prefs: Pull-Down and Pop-Up menu usage is better than Smart Select (Thanks Retrofan)
  • A few more minor fixes and tweaks

AROS: Port of version 1.23 of Odyssey web browser in progress
Currently Krzysztof 'Deadwood' Śmiechowicz is porting version 1.23 of the Webkit-based browser Odyssey developed by Fabien 'Fab' Coeurjoly to AROS. Version 1.16 was ported over two years ago but porting the latest version did not succeed due to missing support of certain MUI4-functionality of the AROS-reimplementation of MUI, called Zune.

The goal of the developer is to be able playing html-videos under AROS. An updated HTML-/JavaScript-engine has been already implemented. A first public version will be released together with version 2.0 of the AROS-distribution Icaros Desktop which is announced for mid-October/November. Users who support the this project are asked to donate money for the bounty project of Zune enhancement. (snx) (Translation: dr)
