Diagnostic tool: DiagROM 0.6
DiagROM is a diagnostic software which is meant to be burned in an EPROM by the user and replaces the regular Kickstart-ROMs of an Amiga. The software does not require any timer, IRQs or something like that and therefore can be launched on very broke computers and there can check the hardware to identify problems. DiagROM uses the serial port to export information or menus.

Currently DiagROM is available for free. Later there will be also programmed ROMs for a little fee. The source code will be released as well. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Crowd funding: The story of the Commodore Amiga in pixels
Nostalgia-related projects continue being very much the trend on crowd funding platforms: After The story of the Commodore 64 in pixels, the author Chris Wilkins is going to acknowledge the Amiga. The book will be published as paperback and hardcover book. Donatorrs can choose between different bonuses - among others an Amiga port of Starquake, which currently is developed by the well-known cracker Galahad and which is supposed to be delivered in a professional box with pin, poster and printed pocket guide.

AROS: May 2016 Highlights
So far we reported about "A week in AROS" in which Krzysztof 'deadwood' Śmiechowicz collected information about changes of the operating system AROS. Recently only few changes could be reported therefore we will change to the monthly summaries of the same author:

"As the days finally got warmer on northern hemisphere, the activity of both users and developers of AROS reached quite low levels in May.

Krzysztof Smiechowicz made the necessary fixes to the source code and enabled again the x86_64 build of AROS, which was not available for over three months. Right now nightly build targets for all supported architectures are available.

In May first version of a new, interesting application has been made available by Marcus Sacrow. Mapparium is an OpenStreetMap client working under AROS and MorphOS. Current functionality allows for example browsing the map and searching for location.

Closing, a new survey has been launched in order to understand how AROS is used by people and how it can become even more useful. If you have not done so, please answer the survey questions in this thread." (snx) (Translation: dr)
