Prototype of new A1200 case, production of Amiga key caps planned
Last year Philippe Lang succeeded in financing the professional production of new A1200 cases via Kickstarter. Meanwhile a first prototype of the case was made. The blog "Indie Retro News" shows some photographs of it.

According to Indie Retro News, Lang will launch another Kickstarter project in September, which is about the production of new Amiga key caps "consisting of 101 keys with springs and 12x plastic complementary plastic holders included!" The sets will be available in different colours and compatible to all Amiga keyboards which use Mitsumi keys. The campaign will be launched on September 1st. (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)

Arcade/Memory-Mix: Blocky Skies
In "Blocky Skies" you have to move your game character from the left to right side of the the screen - along a predefined route. This does not sound difficult? You can see the route only for a short while.

Blocky Skies requires a PAL-Amiga with 512 KB RAM. You can download a bootable ADF-image (packed in a LhA-archive) or the hard drive install. The game was written in assembler, the source codes as well as the C source code of all developer tools used for Blocky Skies are available on Github. (cg) (Translation: dr)
