AmigaOS 4: Quake II with HD-textures
Hugues 'HunoPPC' Nouvel has ported a version of the Quake II-engine to AmigaOS 4 which features HD-textures (video). A 3D card with Warp3D support is required.

For old Radeon models (9000, 9200, 9250, R9 etc.), VSYNC should be disabled in the video options. On slow computers the author recommends a solution of 640x480. (cg) (Translation: dr)

MorphOS: SoundBankster 1.4
Antoine 'tchecko' Dubourg's SoundBankster (screenshot) is an application for DJs which can be completely controled with an USB-DJ-deck. A computer with at least 512 MB RAM is resommended.

The programm was written for MorphOS and uses e.g. the HID-Sensor-API which was introduced with version 3.6. Reggae (loading and playing music), AHI and TinyGL (rendering the graphics of the audio signals) are used as well.

Changes:
  • Made the beat detection feature working. It seems the 1.3 release is totally broken here
  • Added right mouse button handling when dragging track
  • Added some triangle to current position vertical bar to make it more visible
  • Added a marker to see the Cue point in the waveform navigator
  • Fixed the Sync function. A missing notification made the whole stuff not working straight as it should. Sync was working only if the track had been previously processed and BPM/Cue point saved
  • Added some helper for finding the track BPM. x2, /2, +1, -1 BPM and a rounding function to the closed integer
  • Added 1/32 and 1/16 loop size
  • Optimized the display of the remaining time by only updating the display when time changes. Saved 1% CPU from main SoundBankster task
  • Fixed beat detector feedback on UI that wasn't working at all
  • Fixed display issue for beat bars not being displayed when moving the cue point with cue left/right buttons
  • Cue point can't be negative. Cue point position capped >= 0
  • Removed some mostly useless text fields in deck controller (loading time, track tempo, pitch %, computed tempo) by a single 'Playing Tempo' field which displays 'Track tempo * pitch value' ie. Track tempo is 120, pitch is set to 5%, Playing Tempo will be 120 * 1.05 = 126 BPM
  • Reworked the time left to play text area. Updates when seeking in the track

DeliCate Linux: New distribution for Amigas in progress
DeLicate is a Linux distribution which is meant for old computers with very little RAM and low processor performance. At least an i386 or 68020 processor (FPU and MMU are required) is required but a 586 with 233 Mhz or a 68060 with 60 Mhz are recommended. If you want to use a graphical user-interface, your computer should have more than 16 MB RAM (68 MB are recommended).

According to the maintainer in its forum, currently the m68k-port is developed running under ARAnyM emulator. The aim is to port the distribution which is based on the Linux-kernel 2.4 and uClibc to Atari and Amiga computers. (cg) (Translation: dr)
