AROS: July 2016 Highlights
Based on his weekly news on the progresses of the operating system AROS, Krzysztof 'deadwood' Śmiechowicz writes monthly summaries as well.

In July several minor bug fixes and improvements provided by different developers (among others Neil Cafferkey, Krzysztof Śmiechowicz, Matthias Rustler and Stefan Haubenthal) were done - e.g. the native GCC now finds the SDK paths.

Additionally, the Apollo team offers Vampire accelerator boards for developers for free, who push AROS/68k forward. New and updated programms and games (e.g. SimpleMail 0.41, EmuLa) as well as another preversion of the AROS-distribution Broadway are provided as well. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Photographs of and information about Amiga 3400 (preproduction series A4000)
Stefan Egger ("computer collection vienna") has bought an "Amiga 3400", which is a preproduction series of a computer, later sold as Amiga 4000. His working computer and the difference to the later preproduction series he presents on his website. Some missing parts (upper part of the case, HDD-mount, mount for the disk drive, joyport sheet) will be soon completed.

The mount of the disk drive is different to the one of the A4000 and have to be made. Additional information Egger would really appreciate. The computer currently only recognizes 1 MB ChipRAM, for that any hints would be helpful as well. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Screenshot of original BoingBall-Demo
There are different versions of the famous "Boingball-Demo". Again and again collectors are trying to find the oldest and "only real" one. Since the events dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Amiga it is known that the first version of the demo contained a text in the background which an old screenshot proves:


Amiga user Pentad found the screenshot in the September issue of the Amercian magazine "Compute!" from 1985. According to Mical's report after the acquisition by Commodore, the Amiga developers were told to remove the logo "Amiga Computer, Inc" - and in protest against it they did not wrote a different one.
