AmigaKit registers several trademarks, e.g. "Amiga Kit Gotek"
At the beginning of 2017 Amiga, Inc. lost the US registration of the trademark "Amiga" due to inactivity. Afterwards Hyperion and Cloanto competed to diverse Amiga trademarks and are involved in several judicial proceedings.

The British dealer and X5000 distributor Amigakit also became active: Instead of trademarks like "Amiga", "Workbench" or "Amiga Forever" the company concentrated on different ones: In Great Britain (overview) "Amigakit" and the logo "amiga.org" - for some years the website belongs to the British dealer - were registered but also "Amiga Kit" and eventually "Amiga Kit Gotek".

In den Benelux countries Leaman Computing owns the trademark Amigakit and in the Welsh hometown of the company Amiga Technology Ltd. was founded. (cg) (Translation: dr)

MorphOS: E-mail client Iris, Beta version 25
Jacek 'jacadcaps' Piszczek's "Iris" is supposed to become the default mail program for MorphOS. It supports IMAP and can read and create HTML mails. The program requires MorphOS 3.10. You can give feedback to the author using the corresponding discussion on Morphzone.

Changes in beta version 25:
  • Reduced the memory footprint when doing full folder synchronizations
  • Send e-mail using aliases supported by the configured accounts
  • Yahoo! Mail now works with OAuth2
  • Added an X-Mailer field to outgoing messages
  • Fixed: viewing messages while updating existing messages in a folder would lead to bogus unread messages count displayed in the folder tree
  • Fixed: e-mail contents window would appear on Ambient screen even if Iris was open on a public screen
  • Fixed: SMTP message store setting would revert back to default after applying settings

Emulator: Preview to WinUAE 4.0.0
As usual the developers of the well-known Amiga emulator WinUAE present a short preview to the changes of the next version. WinUAE 4.0.0 is supposed to be released in May or June and will provide thw following features:

New features:
  • Beam Racing Lagless VSync which reduces input latency to sub-5ms. Replaces old Low Latency VSync.
  • Virtual multi monitor support. Each virtual Amiga video output connector (Video port graphics adapter, RTG boards) can be “connected” to separate WinUAE window, emulating real hardware being connected to more than one physical monitor.
  • Debugger supports running Amiga executables from shell, adds symbol and gcc stab debugging data support, loads executable to special reserved address space which enables detection of any illegal accesses byte accurately and more.
  • Overlay graphics led (power, floppy etc) support.
  • Close confirmation option added to misc panel.
  • Default WASAPI audio device automatically follows Windows default audio device.
  • Directory harddrives now use uaehf.device as a fake device driver (replacing non-existing uae.device), for example programs that query extra information (like SCSI Inquiry data) now get valid data.
  • Directory filesystem harddrive fake block size dynamic adjustment now starts from smaller disk size, workaround for WB free space calculation overflow when partition is larger than 16G.
  • Disk swapper config file data is restored from statefile.
3.6.x bug fix:
  • WD33C93 based SCSI controllers hung the system if controller didn’t have any connected SCSI devices.

Older bugs fixed:

  • On the fly switching from non-cycle exact to cycle-exact mode stopped emulation in certain situations.
  • Fixed E-Matrix accelerator board RAM selection.
  • If CD was changed and system was reset during change delay, drive become empty and new CD was never inserted. Mainly affected CD32 and CDTV.
  • Code analyzer warnings fixed (uninitialized variables, buffer size checks etc..)
New emulated expansions:
  • C-Ltd Kronos
  • CSA Magnum 40
  • DCE Typhoon MK2
  • GVP A1230 Series II
  • Hardital TQM
  • MacroSystem Falcon 040
  • Xetec FastTrak

MorphOS Software Development Kit 3.12
Press release: The MorphOS Development Team would like to announce the immediate availability of the April 2018 release of the MorphOS SDK 3.12. The new SDK introduces support for Objective-C MUI application development, adds a Clang compiler, GCC 6.4.0, updated GCC5 as well as a GIT suite, many updated libraries and components.

Please note that, at this point, the Objective-C support should be considered a demo - both ABI and API are not yet 100% stable. MorphOS 3.12 may require your applications to be recompiled to work.

The new SDK requires at least 2GB of free disk space to install and is available for download in our files section. (snx) (Translation: dr)
