Philippe Lang (E-Mail)

Crowdfunding: New Amiga-500 cases
After the Amiga-1200 cases and keyboard caps, Philippe Lang has started another crowdfunding project for financing the production of new cases for the Amiga 500 and 500+.

The new cases are not only supposed to replace the yellowed and recalcitrant cases but can also be equipped with the standalone version of the accelerator board Vampire V4 instead of an Amiga-500 board. For this and the Vampire-V2-A500 there are port extension for USB, HDMI and SD-card ports. Plastics used for the case are treated Anti-UV. Philippe Lang wrote: "Plastics used for the case are treated Anti-UV. It will never yellow ever." (snx) (Translation: dr)

Ex-employee of TAO Group talked about Elate and Amiga DE
In January of 2000 the new Amiga owner Amiga, Inc. announced a co-operation with the British TAO Group. Its product called Elate/Intent enabled the development of applications which are independent from the processor - which Amiga Inc. wanted to use to establish its Elate-based "AmigaDE" to as many as devices (handhelds, desktop computers, set-top-boxes).

Since 1991 the predecessor product of Elate called "TAOS" was introduced in the British issue of the magazine Byte. Meanwhile the arcticle also is available online. David Given, an ex-employee of TAO Group, took the corresponding discussion for reporting about the development of the system and to point out its strengths and weaknesses. He also talked about the co-operaqtion with Amiga, Inc.

The plan was that Amiga provides the customer support which the little TAO Group were not able to. David Given wrote: "We had a fling with Amiga pretty late on, and were the technology behind Amiga Anywhere, which nobody ever cared about. (Although we did actually get a few external users. The sheer novelty of this was hard to handle.)" (cg) (Translation: dr)

AmigaOS update: Further details to AmigaOS 3.1.4
In a discussion on, the developers Thomas 'Thor' Richter and Olaf 'Olsen' Barthel have informed about the current status of the development of their updates for AmigaOS 3.1 called "3.1.4". Additional to diverse bug fixes and the changes which are known since the Amiga32, among others the following changes will be added:
  • The update will include a new version of "DiskDoktor" which "examine the contents of the volume, looking for defects and copy the contents of the directory tree to a different volume". Large volumes and long file names are supported. The new version of DiskDoktor only requires 1 Megabyte dealing with a 1 Gigabyte partition, and 8 Megabytes for a 8 Gigabyte partition.
  • A replacement for the CD file system CDFS: A backport of the CD file system of of AmigaOS 4 (currently without supporting mixed-mode CDs, UDF, HFS and HFS-plus) which supports the new mount options "NoNSD", "DirectSCSI" and "SuperFloppy". Besides, "Mask", "Maxtransfer" and "BufMemType" are honoured.
  • "CrossDos now also supports long file names, FAT32, FAT24 and FAT16."
  • CrossDOS as well as the new CDFS now are multithreaded, that means they do not freeze the Workbench any longer while working.
  • Obviously the Workbench developed by Olaf Barthel from AmigaOS 3.5+ is used - or at least part of it: Richter mentioned that replacements for the prefs programs of Workbench and ASL have to be used since Reaction was removed.
  • The programs MagTape and Edit were removed from the distribution. Edit "suffered from several bugs and limitations".
  • workbench.library and icon.library "are already too large to fit into the ROMs", they will be on disks. They will also take more RAM, "so that there is less left on the low-end machines. It will probably not work with 512K alone."
Richter pointed out that many parts of the new features still have to be tested. The developers are looking for new beta testers. (cg) (Translation: dr)

AROS: Weekly progresses since 26th February
Neil Cafferkey has published the latest progresses on the open source AmigaOS clone called AROS:
  • Allow kernel debug output to be captured by Sashimi, Bifteck etc. (neil)
  • Fixed a problem with software interrupts that caused stuttering in HDAudio playback when ACPI was enabled (neil)
  • Allow CPU to sleep again when no task is running and ACPI is disabled; avoids VMs stealing host CPU time for no reason and saves power when running natively (neil)
  • ICU library V60.2 ported for future use with Odyssey (wawa)
  • Implemented retrieval and usage of all PCI IRQ routing tables from ACPI (instead of just the one for the root bus). This solves the problem of some devices having incorrect IRQ numbers when ACPI is enabled (e.g. wired and wireless network interfaces on the Acer AspireOne A110 and A150 work again) (neil)

Introduction to Objective-C under MorphOS 3.10
Objective-C is an "object-oriented programming language that adds Smalltalk-style messaging to the C programming language". Due to the conceptual similarity to BOOPSI ("Basic Object Oriented Programming System for Intuition"), Objective-C now is used in MorphOS to simplify creating and using new (MUI-) classes. On the website of the MorphOS project you can "read more about the implementation details and how MorphOS developers will be able to use these new frameworks". (cg) (Translation: dr)

MorphOS: RegisterISO 1.12 fixes problem with MorphOS 3.10 ISO file
Guido 'Geit' Mersmann's RegisterISO is a little tool to inject the MorphOS keyfile into any MorphOS ISO file. Previously, an overflow in the buffer offset calculation was triggered by the MorphOS 3.10 ISO file, so that it got patched at the wrong place. Version 1.12 of RegisterISO fixes the problem. (snx)
