Story of Commodore: Separating the current manuscript into two books?
Originally Brian Bagnall had split the second issue of his story of Commodore called "On The Edge" into two volumes - the first volume was published in 2010 and finished the story before the company Amiga was took over. The publication of the second volume called "The Amiga Years" has delayed again and again. In 2015 finally it was successfully financed by a Kickstarter campaign.

Now Bagnall has written in his Kickstarter blog, that there is so much to tell that it would be impossible to do this by using 500 pages.

Therefore he has suggested to seperate "The Amiga Years" into two volumes. The first one would start in 1982 with the foundation of Hi Toro/Amiga Inc. and end in 1987. The second one called "The final Years" would describe the time between 1987 until the bankruptcy.

Supporters of the Kickstarter campaign would get ebook editions of "The Amiga Years" and "The Final Years" as soon as possible. The printed edition of the first volume would follow. In order to be able to publish "The Final Years" also as printed edition, another Kickstarter campaign would be required. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Hyperion: problems with the registration of new trademarks
Due to Amiga, Inc's inactivity, the registration for the US trademark "Amiga" expired at the end of last year. Immediately afterwards, Cloanto applied to have the mark registered in their name, while Hyperion took a while longer to notice what was going on and filed for "AmigaOS", "AmigaOne" and the boingball logo roughly four weeks later.

By now, the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) reacted to Hyperion's filings: All registrations have been refused. The application for the BoingBall logo was denied because it wasn't signed or dated - the Belgium based company has six months to correct that error. The other two applications - "AmigaOS" and "AmigaOne" - were not signed either, but were addtionally refused (1, 2). due to a "likelihood of confusion": the USPTO deems them too close to Cloanto's "Amiga" mark. Again, Hyperion has six months to react to the refusal, by either objecting and argueing for a withdrawal of the refusal or by trying to register the mark for a class of products not related to computer hardware or software - which wouldn't make much sense in this particular case, obviously.

In contrast to that, Cloanto's "Amiga" mark was published in the USPTO's "Trademark Official Gazette" yesterday. If no other party files an opposition or extension request within the next thirty days, the mark will be assigned to Cloanto for good. (cg) (Translation: cg)

Web browser: Netsurf 3.7 (SDL version) with Youtube streaming
Artur Jarusik has released an update of his Amiga port of the web browser NetSurf. His version is based on SDL, only the preferences use MUI, and should not be confused with Chris Young's native, Reaction-based version. Additional to some bug fixes, version 3.7 now offers Youtube streaming.

Upon request of amiga.news.de, Artur Jarosik explained: "This is RTG classic version, I may compile AGA version and put it on my website soon." That means that for the current version a graphics card is required.

Changes:
  • reduce cpu usage by 7-10mips
  • hide annoying console windows when playing modules.pl mods
  • fixed and improved youtube playback.
    • Better video quality (uses ffmpeg now), shorter conversion time
    • New API key needed from cloudconvert.com
  • fixed cda.pl playback
  • fixed youtube playback
  • NEW autoupdate
  • NEW youtube streaming
  • NEW information about convertion status
  • faster htpps loading with asm optimised libssl (Chris Young)
  • fix compatability on FPU systems

Interview with Timothy de Groote (Hyperion Entertainment)
Under the title link, Generation Amiga has interviewed Timothy de Groote Hyperion Entertainment). He talked about the end of the trademark "Amiga" in Europe as well as about the shopping tour of Cloanto, acquiring former parts of Commodore (amiga-news.de reported). But Hyperion is not "worried by this" because they "expect that Amiga Inc. or its shareholders will renew the trademarks". (snx) (Translation: dr)

Hollywood: MUI Royale 1.5
Press release: Airsoft Softwair is proud to present the immediate availability of MUI Royale 1.5. The biggest new feature in MUI Royale 1.5 is Unicode support if Hollywood 7 is available. On top of that, MUI Royale 1.5 has its executable size reduced by about 80kb, contains various bug fixes and adds support for some more MUI features.

MUI Royale requires at least Hollywood 5.2 and is provided free of charge for all users of Hollywood. It is available for AmigaOS 3 (m68k), AmigaOS 4 (PPC), MorphOS (PPC), and AROS (x86).

The package comes with over 20 example scripts, many of which are direct ports from the MUI 3.8 SDK by Stefan Stuntz, but there are also original developments like demonstrations of how to create a video player using the combined power of Hollywood and MUI. On top of that MUI Royale comes with extensive documentation in over 300 PDF pages which are also available in the HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM formats thanks to the Hollywood documentation system.

All this makes MUI Royale the truly royal MUI experience, carefully crafted for you Kings and Queens of MUI!

APC&TCP celebrates 25 years
Press release: APC&TCP will be 25 years old in May. Since 25 years, the APC&TCP distribution exists. In its origin APC&TCP was founded to publish the software of computer club members on fair terms. However, the offer was expanded very quickly and non-members can also distribute their software via APC&TCP.

The computer club has not been around for a long time, but APC&TCP is still active. There are still new software titles such as Roadshow, CygnusEd or DigiBooster released and also new updates are being worked on.

APC&TCP is also present in the merchandising market and has been publishing stickers, mousepads, posters and more for years. And, of course, there is also the print magazine Amiga Future, which is almost 20 years old.

In the meantime, APC&TCP has published more than 200 products for the Amiga and hopefully they will become much more in the next few years. We can not really celebrate. We simply lack of time. Nevertheless, a small draw. The price is a one-year subscription of Amiga Future:

What was APC&TCP's first commercial product released nearly 25 years ago?
  • a) CygnusEd
  • b) Databench
  • c) Crossfire II
Send the correct answer by e-mail to Andreas@apc-tcp.de with the subject: "Raffle" until May 30, 2017 at the latest. The winner will be raffled among all correct entries. The legal process is of course excluded as usual.

You can find out more about the history of APC & TCP and the published products by visiting the title link. (snx)
