AmigaOS 4 / MorphOS: Ask Me Up 2.4.0
Jérôme 'Glames' Senay's Ask Me Up is a puzzle game for AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS (as well as Android, Linux and Windows) in which you have to answer correctly questions on common knowledge, each with four possible answers. In the L and XL edition there is also a two-player mode. A demo version with 80 questions is available for free.

In version 2.4.0 the legibility was improved and the button for the answers was animated for some questions. Additional to some bug fixes, a Portuguese translation has been added and the Spanish one improved. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Event: Update on Amiga 30 Reykjavik
This friday the Amiga 30 anniversary will be celebrated in Iceland ( reported). As Michael Battilana of Cloanto (owner of the Commodore/Amiga copyrights and publisher of Amiga Forever) told us now, he will attend the show as well.

Furthermore he pointed out that they "will be a couple of dozen people, which is not much in absolute terms, so even having a website is a lot. On the other hand, it looks like almost 0.01 % of the population of the entire country will attend, which in this light makes it by far the most successful Amiga anniversary event of the year, or actually, one of the largest computing events in the world. There will be Amiga demosceners, developers, users, and people in general whose life has been affected by Amiga." In case you decide spontaneously to join as well, you might want to combine the event with the Reykjavík Culture Night (Menningarnótt) that takes place on Saturday. (snx)

Web-Browser: Netsurf 3.3 alpha with Reaction interface
Chris Young has ported his AmigaOS 4-port of the web browser Netsurf to AmigaOS 3. In contrary to the ports made available for the Amiga by Artur 'Arti' Jarosik - which unfortunately are distributed with the same name - Young's version uses a native Amiga-toolkit,

Due to the use of Reaction, at least AmigaOS 3.5 is required. According to the author this latest version is an alpha version.
