Kickstarter project: Commodore Amiga - A visual Compendium
Under the title link a Kickstarter project for a 264-pages book on the Amiga was started which similar to its first book on the C64 put emphasis on the visual aspects. The funding target was met after 12 hours but you can still support the project. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Lua-Interpreter with arbitrary-precision arithmetic
Version 5.2.3 of the interpreter for the programming language Lua was copmpiled by 'Thorham' using arbitrary-precision arithmetic-support.

AmigaOS 3.x and a 68020-processor are required. It does not require a FPU or the ixemul.library. Loading dynamic libraries still was not implemented in this version.

The programm can be started using the Workbench or the command line. In the command line you have to add the parameter "-l mapm" in order to use the maths library for the arbitrary-precision arithmetic.

Example code:
mapm.digits(100)
a=mapm.sqrt(12345)
b=mapm.sqrt(54321)
print(a*b)
c=mapm.number(1)
d=mapm.number(3)
e=c/d
print(e*d)
Commands like mapm.sin or mapm.cos also can be used.

Individual Computers: RapidRoad USB starts shipping on October 20
Press release: The new High-speed USB host controller "RapidRoad" by Individual Computers will start shipping on october 20th, 2014.

RapidRoad uses the USB Stack Poseidon, which we have purchased as a source code license back in october 2011. Now we're making use of this license and fill a huge gap in the market of Amiga hardware that has existed for a few years now. RapidRoad is based on a High-speed USB host controller chip that has not been used for the Amiga before.

Although the ISP1763a can be considered the "little brother" of the chip that has been used on the fastest USB controller to date - Deneb by E3B - it can keep up with its performance: If the X-Surf 100 is operated in Z3 mode and a high-end accelerator is used, transfer rates from USB mass storage devices can exceed 7 MBytes per second.

RapidRoad can also be used for the "smaller" Amiga models, which replaces the famous "Subway" controller by E3B. Many older Amiga models are showing timing glitches on the clockport interface when larger amounts of data are transferred, so we had to develop a special interface that can safely deal with these timing glitches. This development has consumed lots of time and money, so we've decided to offer RapidRoad in a cheaper version that has the clockport interface deactivated: This version can only be used on the X-Surf 100 networking card.

Starting today, RapidRoad can be ordered in three different versions with different included cables. Please mind that if you want to pay with PayPal, you may get an error message where no real error has occured. Before you try again, please check your PayPal account: Most of the times, the order went through OK, and only the instant payment notification from PayPal did not reach our server. If the transaction is shown in your PayPal account, everything has worked out right. We're already working on a solution to this problem. (snx)
