Emulation of Sam 460 using QEMU in development
According to a mail on the QEMU-PPC mailing list Zoltan Balaton is working on an emulation of a Sam-460 using QEMU. In the first status report (middle of August) he described that AROS as well as MorphOS could boot, but finally failed due to different problems. Balaton could not test AmigaOS, because he does not own a copy of AmigaOS 4.1 besitzt.

The emulator QEMU emulates or virtualizes alot of computers or processors. If the host system has a suitable processor, QEMU does not have to emulate it - so Balaton's project could succeed in emulating Sam 460 operating systems under different PPC hardware - e.g. Apple-Hardware .

On a common Windows-PC, QEMU would have to emulate the PPC-CPU, but would not have to emulate the complex custom chip emulation, which is currently required to run AmigaOS 4 "Classic" under WinUAE. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Zorro 2 extension: IDE controller "IDE4"
THe French online shop Ameedia offers a new IDE-controller for Zorro-2 Amigas: To the "IDE4" up to four IDE/ATA-devices can be connected. Besides, a CompactFlash slot is on the card. The controller is compatible to Gayle, which in an A600 and A1200 controls the IDE-ports. If only one of the two IDE-ports is used, Kickstart 2.05 is required but no additional drivers. IDEfix is required for accessing the second port. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Javascript: TAWS - The Amiga Workbench Simulation 0.28
TAWS ("The Amiga Workbench Simulation") is a Javascript simulation of the Amiga-Workbench 1.0 - 4.1 for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and Apple-WebKit-Browser (including Odyssey).

Any kind of feedback the author Michael Rupp would very appreciate. He still is searching for support for the French translation. His work can be supported by a little donation from inside TAWS.

Changes of version 0.28:

  • Tribute to AmiKit X: New preset "OS 3.9 AmiKitX" incl. boot animation. Accordingly there is a new window layout "3.9 AmiKitX" in "Preferences", a new iconset "AmiKit X", a new cursor "AmiKit X" and the new patterns "AmiKit X Backdrop". Many thanks to Jan Zahurancik (AmiKit) for granting the use of the graphics. Direct call using the url parameter "preset"
  • Complete polish localisation - many thanks to 'Piana' Pianka
  • Support for browser "SeaMonkey", even with about:config setting "general.useragent.compatmode.firefox" set to "false".
  • ListBox:
    • new look with the styles "Thin" and "Thin XEN"
    • new look in "Amiga Early Startup Control / Boot Options" for OS 4.x
    • scrollbar grabber with the OS4-style
    • new look of arrow buttons for the "OS 3.9"-layout
  • Chrome / Opera: improvement when determining the user language: it's no longer the browser language that is recognized but the actual prefered-by-user language.
  • Bugfixes:
    • Timberwolf stopped working since v0.25 ("Uncaught Exception" when trying to set the attribute "transform" on a CSS style). Implemented a workaround for that.
    • Palette: setting the text color for inactive widows only worked once.
    • Window gadgets where set to "active" on a mouse-up event issued by a drag'n'drop operation even when the window itself was inactive.
    • Firefox: correction of the text padding to the color boxes in the listbox of the "Palette"
    • Chrome / Opera in "Amiga Early Startup Control": correction of the border in "Expansion Board Diagnostic" and the buttons height
    • Odyssey Web Browser: the boot image for OS 4.1 FE was not shown.
