Emulator: FS-UAE Wrapper simplifies access to archives
The FS-UAE Wrapper, written in Python, is supposed to simplify the access to archives, so for example you can compress ISO-images together with configuration files into an archive. (cg) (Translation: dr)

AEROS for indieGO! available
Purchasers of Pascal Papara's "indieGO!", which is an ARM-based system combining several games consoles by using different emulators, now also can use his Linux-hosted AROS-distribution AEROS. Using the online update function, AEROS can be added at the start of indieGO!. A video shows AEROS starting on the system and later the game AmigaRacer.

According to Pascal Papara "it is the first time AROS hosted on ARM runs with a 32bit color depth and so hand in hand with the 3D accelerated drivers or the console." AROS itself includes al system files which recently were back ported by Krzysztof Śmiechowicz for the ABIv0 and are also used in the distribution Icaros Desktop.

Additional to AEROS, version 1.7.0 of the Linux-based operating system "indieGO! OS" also offers FS-UAE as well as the latest version of the Amiga emulator uae4arm, compiled on and for the Odroid-XU4, supporting JIT, full screen mode and sound (actually uae4arm is optimized for Raspberry Pi2/3).

Pascal Papara also wrote: "Besides this preparations are made to allow the execution of IcAROS desktop utilizing the commercial i386 to ARM wrapper ExaGear. Performance wise it feels similar to my macbook pro late 2009 and running it in Virtualbox. This is possible because it used the wrapper only for the CPU translation and else it relies on native ARM API's.

There are much more updates like a new launcher menu done by Fabio and fixes to other system emulation but since they are not Amiga Related I would like to invite you to have an eye on the AMC-Support-Forum." (snx) (Translation: dr)

Dave Haynie: Entire "Deathbed Vigil" video at Youtube
In spring 1994 with his own camera hardware developer Dave Haynie recorded the almost deserted Commodore production facility in West Chester, a mass dismissal as well as a party of former employees ("wake") on the day after the announcement of the companys bankrupt.

The video which resulted from that was sold as "The Deathbed Vigil and other tales of digital angst": First of all by Haynie himself, finally as part of the premium edition of the emulator distribution Amiga Forever. Now Haynie has made available the video at Youtube for free. (cg) (Translation: dr)

MorphOS: Bounty project for new system monitor
Jacek 'jacadcaps' Piszczek, member of the MorphOS-Team, has suggested a bounty project in the forum of the MorphZone for a replacement of "Scout".

Unlike the former system monitor, "Scout NG" should not depend on external MUI-classes but will provide some MorphOS information. Besides, certain system lists should be shown in context (processes/tasks/windows as a tree).

On the website of the WArMUp ("World Association of MorphOS Users") you can donate for that project, which requires 200 Euro. (snx) (Translation: dr)
