Preview videos: Vertical shooter "EgoWings"
For some time Javier Alcaniz (code) and Carlos 'Estrayk' Del Alamo (music) have been working on a vertically scrolling shoot'em up developed with AMOS. The game runs on each Amiga with at least 1 MB RAM.

AROS: October 2016 Highlights
Based on his weekly news on the progresses of the operating system AROS, Krzysztof 'deadwood' Śmiechowicz also summarizes the results for a month under the title link.

"In October the AROS repository breached 53000 commits mark thank to contributions from multiple developers. Neil Cafferkey continued his work on improving MUI as well as fixed the IntelGMA video driver. Miloslav Martinka contributed further Czech localization as well as localized WiMP tool. Yannick Erb and Marcus Sackrow contributed fixes to AROS programs and we saw introduction of new AROS GUI theme. Lastly ARM Linux hosted version of AROS has been fixed to compile again as part of ABIv0 refresh by Krzysztof Smiechowicz.

After September's explosion of distributions, October was quiet on that front. 3rd party developers however continued their work. Yannick Erb released updated version of ZuneView tool and Joerg Renkert released new version of his ModExplorer application for playing online and offline music modules. AROS archives also saw upload of two interesting Zelda-type games, Time to Triumph und Navi's Quest." (snx) (Translation: dr)

AmigaOS 4: Spreadsheet ignition with OpenDocument support
Achim Pankalla has released an "addon" for the spreadsheet program ignition - which he maintains and has adapted to AmigaOS 4 - that adds support for the OpenDocument-format which is used by OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

The addon requires ignition 1.0 beta 4 and can load and save documents the suffix ods. It is the first public release which still cannot convert all formulas and functions ignition can calculate. Besides, currently only a few optical attributes (font) are accepted. (cg) (Translation: dr)
