MUI für AmigaOS with licensing issues (Update)
In December 2014 it was revealed that the MUI distribution "MUI for AmigaOS" contained API documentation that had been copied from the MorphOS SDK without acquiring a proper license first. During the following discussion, both developers of "MUI for AmigaOS" - Jens "damato" Maus und Thore "tboeckel" Böckelmann - apologized for their mistake.

When the latest update of the distribution was discussed on amiga-news.de today, Christian 'Tokai' Rosentreter issued another statement (German) claiming that the developer documentation inside the archive still contained large parts copied verbatim from the MorphOS SDK. After a short conversation with Rosentreter and an indepth look at two of the files listed by him, we found evidence (German) that suggests his allegations are true.

After discussing our findings with Maus and Böckelmann, amiga-news.de decided to stop covering any future versions of "MUI for AmigaOS" until the documentation in question has been rewritten from scratch.

Update: (03.01.2016, 21:00, cg)

Replaced the original news item about the latest update to "MUI for AmigaOS" with an explanation of the licensing issues. (cg) (Translation: cg)

Javascript: Scripted Amiga Emulator 0.8.3
Already in March, version 0.8.3 of the Scripted Amiga Emulator was made available, which was originally released more than three years ago.

Rupert Hausberger's Scripted Amiga Emulator was written in Javascript and and should run with all modern web browsers, but is highly recommended for Chrome.

Changes in version 0.8.3:
  • Audio
    • Fixed a heavy bug i added myself around v0.6-0.7 on the seek for other bugs. Big thanks to 'Ralf Sommer'
    • Dropped usage of the ring-buffer and wrote a new and faster queue-buffer
    • The audio-data is now first sampled at 15.65KHz and then resampled to the rate of the soundcard. This does reduce internal CPU-usage
    • Removed 'Audio/Samplerate' in the GUI, because it's no longer used
  • Events
    • Fixed a bug in combination with frameskip
    • Frameskip is now disabled by default
  • Common
    • Updated AROS-ROMs to actual version SVN50213

Jump'n Run: Final version of "Zerosphere"
In "Zerosphere" (Youtube video) the surrounding area of the player is highly blurred. Only if the player "blinks" by pushing the fire button of the joystick, it is possible to see the real dimension.

In August a pre-version was released. Now at the demo party "Under Construction", the final version of the game has been released which according to the author provides "lot of bug fixing and new features". (cg) (Translation: dr)
