MorphOS: GenesisPlus 1.7
GenesisPlus emulates the Sega-consoles Mega Drive, Sega CD, Master System and Game Gear.

Version 1.7 only shows ROM-files with a valid type (.cue|.bin|.smd|.sms|.gg), automatically sets the audio and video timing using the version of the ROM (PAL or NTSC) and offers preview pictures in the startup window as well as in the savestate manager. (snx) (Translation: dr)

AppStore: First screenshots of "AMIStore"
In October, the British trader Amigakit announced an "AppStore" called "AMIStore". The address now is available, but without any functions. On now some screenshots of the AmigaOS application have been published which later will be used for searching and purchasing software in the store. (cg) (Translation: dr)

AmigaOS 3: SSL-connection to 1&1, GMX, might fail
According to Jens 'damato' Maus (YAM-Team) in the Amiga-News-forum, currently problems could occur if YAM or SimpleMail are trying to establish a SSL-connection to the mail servers of 1&1, GMX or

Some weeks ago, the configuration of the mail servers have been changed: The mail programms have only little time (few seconds) to establish a SSL-connection. For computer systems which are buzy or slow - like real Amiga hardware - the time could be not long enough and the connections cannot be established.

According to Jens Maus, an update for AmiSSL is being developed which is supposed to speed up the initialization of SSL-connections. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Project: Graphic board as partly equipped platine for A500 and Zorro-slot
Currently Amiga-user Matthias "Matze" Heinrichs is reworking the design of a clone of a 20 years old graphic board Picasso II+ developed by Georg Braun. The final product is supposed to be working in a Zorro-Slot as well as (after removing a part of the connector block) in the expansion port of an Amiga 500:

In order to to be suitable with different cases, the VGA-port is on a separate platine which is connected with the graphic board by cable. This second platine also also can be connected with the Scandoubler Indivision. An integrated switcher automatically provides the required signal (graphic board or Indivision) to the VGA-port.

Heinrichs is going to sell the board as partly equipped construction kit: RAM-chips, VGA-chip, video switcher and the CPLD have been already soldered up. The other parts (resistors, condensers, wired parts) the user has to assemble by himself.

Currently it is not possible to say when the board will be available. Due to the sale as construction kit, a private sale without a trade intermediary is possible. Currently the CPLD is programmed: Autoconfig is largely implemented, according to Heinrichs programming the memory/IO-statemachine and the monitor switcher is still missing.

For the moment the well-known Picasso driver of the Picasso96 distribution can be used. It is planned to adapt this RTG-system, which currently requires at least a 68020-processor, to the 68000: the planned accelerator board Zeus contains a 50 Mhz 68000 which would be fast enough to supply the graphic board with data.
