Computer Collection Vienna: Amiga-1000-Prototype Velvet / Oldest Kickstart
Under the title link, Stefan Egger has presented a prototype of an Amiga 1000 which is part of his collection, the Computer Collection Vienna. The Kickstart version of the board called "Velvet" is supposed to be the oldest known version; it is three months older than the known version 0.7.

Stefan Egger wrote on his website: "What is special about that machine? It only comes with 128k RAM and can be expanded by another 128k on front expansion port to a maximum of 256k. This expansion is known to exist! You surely heared about stories that Commodore did want to reduce the Memory of Amiga, but the Amiga Team did not want that. That is maybe why they ended up with a standard of 256k on the A1000, that was expandable to a maximum of 512k by an A1050 RAM Expansion module.

Another thing are the names: Daphne (later "Denise"), Portia (later "Paula") and Agnus. And Daphne had a IC number of AM4705A, the others have 8364 (Paula/Portia) and 8361 (NTSC Agnus), just like their later equivalents." (snx) (Translation: dr)

MorphOS: exFAT file system
Rupert Hausberger has ported the exFAT file system (Wikipedia) to MorphOS. It is not an adaption of the version of AmigaOS 4 ( reported), but a direct and completely native port.

Rupert Hausberger wrote: "Due to license restrictions, the version with write-support is not included as a binary-file. For testing and private use, you may compile the version with write-support by removing __READ_ONLY__ in the makefile. See the source-code distribution of this release." (snx) (Translation: dr)
