Olaf Schönweiß (ANF)

AROS: Aros Vision 2.9.3 RTG
Major changes in version 2.9.3 of Olaf Schönweiß's AROS/68k distribution Aros Vision RTG are that MESA/Gallium is activated by default and that it uses Zune instead of MUI (MUI can be activated if necessary).

MESA/Gallum needs 256 MB RAM, works only with more than 16 Bit colour depth and is still slow - but it works. The maintainer hopes this will motivate 68k developers to help with further work. Since Zune now is used as standard, more and more AROS applications can be integrated in future.

  • All system files updated
  • Zune and MESA/Gallium activated
  • Netsurf updated (much faster)
  • Themes added
  • Development (GCC) updated
  • Most files from contrib/ports (Aros) integrated
  • ZuneView added
  • OWB (old AROS port) works again
  • FlashMandelNG added
  • Free Pascal updated (to version 3.1)
  • AmiBlitz updated (newest snapshot)
  • WHDLoad updated

AmigaOS 4: MPlayer-Bounty
Under the title link a bounty project was established to optimize the MPlayer-port of Andrea 'afxgroup' Palmate ( reported) for AmigaOS 4.1. Some functions are supposed to be added which the AmigaOS-4-port of MUI-MPlayer written by Fabien 'Fab' Coeurjoly and originally developed for MorphOS already have - except some OS4-specific video drivers.

Among others the picture-in-picture bug of Picasso96 is supposed to be fixed, FFmpeg integrated and menus and drag and drop implemented. 1.600 US-Dollar is required, currently so far 1.380 Dollar has been donated. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Amiga-Arena (ANF)

Amiga-Arena: Ali Baba (full version)
Olaf Köbnik wrote: In the year 2000, the developer Nabil Gonem released his low-bugdet game Ali Baba. In 2001 the Amiga-Arena got the permission to offer Ali Baba as full version for download. Unfortunately at that moment the developer had sold his Amiga and did not own his game.

Amiga-Arena could not find the full version of the game because the game hardly was sold. Only now the disk version was found and now is available for download. (snx) (Translation: dr)
