Update GeoWorld
After more than half a year of work, today we finally finished the long-awaited update to version 1.1 of GeoWorld. GeoWorld, probably the best geographical software for the Amiga, has been expanded by the following features in version 1.1:
  • adding a new generic search function in the maxi search, enabling for the first time the search for special keywords in the additional databases like economy, history etc. (full text search)
  • complete rework and bugfixes
    • NewLook-Menus for OS 3.0+ (no more changing menu colors)
    • flashing pointer for cities and small countries now working correctly
    • scrolling of the maps pixel by pixel per keyboard
    • sorting speed-up due to presorted databases
    • faster search functions (in Assembler)
    • VisualPrefs now supported nearly completely
    • GeoWorld-Fonts can now stay in the same directory
  • interaction with all requesters now completely by keyboard
  • option to give distances in miles instead of kilometers
  • requester "no information available" now with configurable time-out
  • reworked and expanded prefs window (among others display mode, font, use, save or reset prefs)
  • expansion of the city database for Austria, Switzerland, Brasil and US cities (over 1100 cities with ZUP code, 6119 cities total)
  • expanding the city databases with details about country / state capitals
  • expanding the country databases with details about the Internet abbreviation (e.g. .de, .uk, .us)
  • informations about the databases are now kept in a seperate GeoWorld.data file, so an expansion of the databases does no longer imply a change of the main program
  • expansion of the info requester
  • rewritten and expanded online help
  • reworked and extremly expanded data about the inhabitants of the countries (over 100 kByte text!!)

The Update Nr. 9 and a up-to-date demo version are available from our homepage (title link), and should appear on Aminet (misc/edu) in the next few days.

Amiga.org: Redesign of the website and database ready
Amiga.org is here again full power, the website has a friendlier and cleaner layout now, and it is (as before) possible requesting news sorted by subject from a database, like hardware etc., seperately.
I am dreaming of a database like that, too, simply great :-). (ps) (ps) (Translation: (unk)

ComputerWoche: Linux-based operating system competing agains WindowsCE
ComputerWoche writes: Amiga is not dead, new live as home information device
MUNICH (CW) - New details have surfaced about Amiga, the cult of the 80ies. It is intended to be mainly used as Information Appliance in the future.
About two years ago, direct PC distributor Gateway purchased the rights of the computing pioneer Amiga and its 47 patents from German Escom AG. Now, the name shall be brought back to life.
Aside from PCs for the consumer market, future's Amigas will be mainly used as information appliances in private households. CEO Jim Collas wants to present an operating enviroment until the end of the year, and ship the first machines early 2000. (Full story - German - at the title link) (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Iwin


Iwin: product specifications of A510MP and A1010MP online
At AmiUpdate, the entry in the Sun Dealer Catalog is considered sufficient proof for the existence of Iwin. Here's the entry.
At ANN, there are two more interesting postingsabout the subject: 1. The manufacturer of the tower casings has been found, it is the company Antec. 2. Jeffrey D. Webster explains in a posting to c.s.a.m. why it isn't that hard to get added to the Sun Dealer Catalog.
Comment about the technical specification: It reads all too well. You cannot run the bus system with a 68060-50, however. You will never get the speed to the PCI bus to transport the data fast enough for the pixel rates of the gfx card. Not to speak of AGP. I consider that impossible with a 68060 CPU. A company without Amiga experience can never implement this stuff. For this, the subject is far too complicated. And how is all this intended to run without Amiga chipset?

Thomas Raukamp writes: About your comment about bus speed - don't forget that the Milan is running gfx cards on the PCI bus with 060, so it is possible. Far less likely is that the emulation of the Custom Chips is possible without modification of the Kick-ROMs. If they modify them, they break the licence since they have none. With this, Iwin would end in court.

Bernhard Hembach dead
Attorney and bancruptcy manager Bernhard Hembach has died on August 20th at the age of only 55 by heart attack. Our feelings are with his family. Mr. Hembach managed the bancruptcies of Commodore and Escom, and by his casual approach did his part in keeping the Amiga alive. (ps) (Translation: (unk)
