| AmigaOS 4 speaker fired / confirmation regarding A-EON's 2012 restructuring|
Since 2011, the Canadian developer Steven Solie was employed as head of the AmigaOS 4 developer team for Hyperion Entertainment ("team lead") - a title which, according to Solie, was self-given and later qualified by him to be the "spokesman" of the team. Still in last autumn he organized the AmigasOS DevCon as part of the AmiWest, although this time he didn't give a speech for Hyperion at the actual event anymore.
As Solie himself now confirmed, he was "fired" by Hyperion as "team lead" as well as "core developer". In Hyperion's support forum he now is listed only as beta tester. Three days ago he was still called "AmigaOS Core Developer" and "AmigaOS Development Team Lead".
Interestingly on his LinkedIn profile under work experience he states now to be "Team Lead" of the "AmigaOS ExecSG Development" since january. According to rumours (German), since at least 2018 the AmigaOS 4 core ExecSG is owned by Trevor Dickinson (A-EON Technology), which Mike Battilana, meanwhile owner of the Amiga rights and of the website of Amiga Inc. via C-A Acquisition Corporation, confirmed to the video podcast "10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast".
Additionally the reasons for the withdrawal of the Hyperion shareholder Ben Herman from the original A-EON company and its relocation to Great Britain were confirmed (amiga-news.de reported):
In the third part of Trevor Dickinson's background report on the development of the AmigaOne X1000 in the lastest issue 137 of the print magazine Amiga Future, he did not only mention more concrete costs (cf. the first page of the advertisement) but also describe that money which A-EON was going to use for the AmigaOne instead was used to keep Hyperion afloat after the financial burden due to the legal dispute with Amiga Inc. without the knowledge of the two other directors.
