New Play16 (Eclipse Edition)
Thomas Wenzel writes:
While porting my audio software to 24-bit, the first thing to do was the ages-since-last-updated Play16. The new version 1.9, which has been completed yesterday, can now process 24-bit AIFF data. The playback, however, is still 16-bit. Next is an AHI-Record and AmigaAMP, and of course the AHI driver for the Prelude. As soon as the digital interface is available, the full resolution can be used with the appropriate equipment (external 24-bit converter). Play16 is available from play16.amiga.software.com (title link), and soon from Aminet. Aside from the expanded AIFF support, nothing much has changed however. There are more detailed error reports if you try to play back unsupported formats or compressions, and that's it. Please don't bombard me with eMails, what else weird features I should be implementing, I have no time for it :) I consider the project closed, and do only detail refining. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

AminetGUI updated
Alexander Kurtz writes:
My AminetGUI has been updated. I now added a new link area. Aside from little improvements of the design, the most important change is that the GUI now has a mirror. It can now be reached at:
Mirror 1: fly.to/aminet/
Morror 2: mercury.spaceports.com/~aminet/
If anybody has ideas or suggestions, please contact aminet-ideen@lxk.findhere.com
Mirror 1 is having troubles, but this will be resolved ASAP. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Maim & Mangle goes 3D hardware only
To really get the most out of Maim & Mangle, a "high spec" Amiga is required. Too many features are simply invisible without 3D hardware. So, we desided to support M&M for Amigas with 3D hardware only. The 68k version requires an 060. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Amiga getting more and more media coverage
Heiko Krappmann writes:
In the issue of PC-Praxis before the last one, there has been an article about AmigaOS 3.5. The report was about technical details and the release date. The MCC was mentioned briefly, too.
The latest issue of the PC-Joker printed a small article about our Amiga, too, sounding like this: "Did you already know that Amiga is to release a new computer with Linux, appearing this year?"
At Giga, Michael Labiner stated once that they would possibly switch to Amiga if there would be enough games to fill an issue. The video is available from PC-Joker, issue 7/99, MPEG format. Also many VIPs are "coming out" as Amiga fans, like Oliver Kahn (German soccer pro) at Giga. He said he had an Amiga once, and is missing it :-).

Rudi Rager writes:
In the August issue of the P.M. magazine, our Amiga is mentioned twice in the scope of a raytracing special.
Quote: "Oberland Computer now offers the made-in-Germany monzoom 3d for Windows, originally developed for the legendary Amiga computer." Further down the text, it reads: "One of the dream applications for pros, Cinema4D, developed by Maxon Computer also originally for the Amiga, is now available as an entry version."
The article starts on page 88, the Amiga is mentioned p.90f. Speaking for myself, I am very happy about little things like this :-).

Dirk Baeyens found the following article from ZDNet.com: Gateway to bring back Amiga.

More articles can be found on the Linux Special Page, where we collected all interesting articles about AMigaNG/Linux/QNX sorted chronologically (Wall Street Journal, ZDNet.com, ZDNet.de, FutureZone, Computerwoche etc.). (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Fun Time World


Now it's official, Urban!
Rüdiger Engel did mention it in his WoA-report, but now clickBOOM has officially announced the winners, and who is listed as the best gamer? Our "Mr. Aminet" Urban Müller himself. Urban is awarded clickBOOM games for a lifetime, including all past and future titles. Sarcastically, clickBOOM adds that now everybody knows what Urban is doing when the Aminet is down again, or the last CD is delayed ;-).
Runner-ups are Jamie Sheralt, who won the MicroniK Infinitiv-tower including Phase5 CV64/3D, Luke Stowe and Daniel Platt. Congratulations. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

In the latest issue of the IT-sales week, there has been a report about the Amiga NG on the first page (bottom left). A picture showed the Amiga MCC (already) known to us, and talk was about its Linux future.
Say what you might, the Amiga definitely is present in the print media right now :-). (ps) (Translation: (unk)
