FPGA: Apollo-Core-Update Gold 2.9
The Apollo core is a FPGA-reimplementation of Motorolas m68k-series, which also provides a separate graphic mode called SAGA. Currently the core is used in the accelerator boards 600 V2 and 500 V2(+). All changes are listed under the title link:
  • Better support for fast Power-Off/On of the Amiga
  • Allow software to turn off built-in Map-ROM to access on-board ROM-Chip
  • Map-ROM mapping support for Atari ROMs
  • Memory management support for Atari Memory map
  • FPU speed-up (now 51 MFlops at x11 according to SysInfo)
  • FPU fully working under Atari OS
  • Pressing Fire buttons on Power-On will boot EmuTOS (Atar OS)

Crowdfunding: New Amiga-500 cases
After the Amiga-1200 cases and keyboard caps, Philippe Lang has started another crowdfunding project for financing the production of new cases for the Amiga 500 and 500+.

The new cases are not only supposed to replace the yellowed and recalcitrant cases but can also be equipped with the standalone version of the accelerator board Vampire V4 instead of an Amiga-500 board. For this and the Vampire-V2-A500 there are port extension for USB, HDMI and SD-card ports. Plastics used for the case are treated Anti-UV. Philippe Lang wrote: "Plastics used for the case are treated Anti-UV. It will never yellow ever." (snx) (Translation: dr)

Ex-employee of TAO Group talked about Elate and Amiga DE
In January of 2000 the new Amiga owner Amiga, Inc. announced a co-operation with the British TAO Group. Its product called Elate/Intent enabled the development of applications which are independent from the processor - which Amiga Inc. wanted to use to establish its Elate-based "AmigaDE" to as many as devices (handhelds, desktop computers, set-top-boxes).

Since 1991 the predecessor product of Elate called "TAOS" was introduced in the British issue of the magazine Byte. Meanwhile the arcticle also is available online. David Given, an ex-employee of TAO Group, took the corresponding discussion for reporting about the development of the system and to point out its strengths and weaknesses. He also talked about the co-operaqtion with Amiga, Inc.

The plan was that Amiga provides the customer support which the little TAO Group were not able to. David Given wrote: "We had a fling with Amiga pretty late on, and were the technology behind Amiga Anywhere, which nobody ever cared about. (Although we did actually get a few external users. The sheer novelty of this was hard to handle.)" (cg) (Translation: dr)
