Event: First reports of AmiWest 2013 (Update)
There are some first reports of the AmiWest which is taking place in Sacramento, California this weekend. According to them:
  • it was again confirmed that there will not be a laptop for AmigaOS 4
  • A-EON Technology has invested 1,2 million in new systems
  • which probably will be available at the end of 2014: AmigaOne 3041, 5020, 5040; Hans-Jörg and Thomas Frieden can already run AmigaOS 4 on the Cyrus-board
  • the beta test of the Cyrus boards will start at the begining of the next year, 50 testers are required
  • the first production will begin with 500 boards 6 months after the beta tests were started; batches of 300-500 pieces are planned
  • the Cyrus board will be available separately to allow international customers an inexpensive access to A-EON-systems; this is also planned for the Nemo board of the AmigaOne X1000
  • additional to Alinea Computer in Germany, A-EON is looking for a distributor in USA
  • the Ethernet driver for the Onboard-port of the AmigaOne X1000 is currently beta tested and Trevor Dickinson is already using it instead of a PCI-board
  • a new AmigaOS-4-kernel is currently tested, called the X-Kernel, which features multicore-support
  • the port of LibreOffice is developed further: Soon a beta test programm will be started
  • for Amiga computers a new soundcard will be available, which can be connected via the Zorro-slot or the clockport and which can play most of the audio formats; Michael Böhmer (E3B) is developing it, Ian Gledhill is writing the driver and the user-interface is written by Matthew Leaman; originally it should be called Prism but with regard to the spying programm it will be renamed
Update: (09:07, 20.10.13, snx)
Meanwhile further information is available directly from the A-EON Technology website. Furthermore, the information at the title link has been extended and the video of Trevor Dickinson's presentation has been uploaded. (snx) (Translation: dr)
