On our daily web surfing session, this nice Amiga portal site has caught our eye. Easy-to-navigate, Amiga users can find links about every subject around Amiga. Aside from the very well sorted links, extraordinary websites are presented seperately. The site, aside from many own information pages, also offers help and support.
An all-around well made website :-) (ps) (ps) (Translation: (unk)

WBInfo 3.0?!
Ulrich Hambuch writes:
To all WBInfo users, and users of the MUI Scalos Information Module.
Before we undergo writing a new version of WBInfo, which is really meant to be a major update, we want to know:
  • Who is using WBInfo and in which configuration?
  • What are the things you don't like in WBInfo?
  • What is your personal whish list for WBInfo?
  • If WBInfo would be Shareware, what would it be worth to you?

WBInfo is the best Info replacement for AmigaOS so far, and if you want development to continue, contact pixar@gmx.net or eric@tro.net. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Holger Kruse goes REBOL
Holger Kruse writes:
There will be some changes at Nordic Global for the year 2000. In a nutshell:
  • Starting January 1st, 2000, I will work full time for REBOL Technologies, and will therefore not be able to spend as much time on Amiga software development as I used to.
  • I will move from Florida to California, which may cause some service outages of my Internet presence and delays during the months of December '99 and January 2000.
  • All of my Amiga software is still supported, except for Daytona, which unfortunately has to be cancelled, because of lack of time and a conflict of interest regarding Java and REBOL. I will try to find a way to release the current snapshot or have development continue by others in some way though.

For the full announcements please see
www.nordicglobal.com/ng2000.txt
and www.nordicglobal.com/ngoutages.txt.

PNG and Amiga
The book "PNG - The Definite Guide", by Greg Roelofs, O'Reilly, ISBN 1-56592-542-4, mentions the Amiga positively for a change:
Especially considering PNG, it is very easy to support new file formats in Amiga browsers by using Datatypes... to briefly cite the book (p.36):
"On the Amiga, it is ubiquitous, thanks to a technological marvel, known as datatypes, (a kind of super-DLL that, among other things, provides generic image support); but under operating systems like BeOS or Atari TOS, it is virtually nonexistent."
Of course this leads to Amiga WWW browsers and a collection of Amiga tools and applications get very good comments (some from myself, too ;) The book is also very open towards other alternative platforms (Acorn, BeOS, Macintosh, NextStep, OS/2).
Bottom line: worth reading. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Many requests for Melody-Z2
We thank the users for the big interest in Melody-Z2, and the companies Rüdiger Gruner Bürotechnik and DCE for the quick, uncomplicated revival:
There was only a minimum number of Melody-Z2 sitting on the shelves half assembled. These cards were gone some hours after the announcement. This was unsatisfactory for Katodev. The cooperation of Katodev, Gruner and DCE now makes it possible to initiate a small production run. Special thanks goes to DCE. Save the expansion port, the card is identical to the one offered until one year ago.
If your order was declined, ignore it for the time being. sales@katodev.de should contact you explaining the additional availability. After this, however, Melody-Z2 is done for sure. The MPEG1-DSP used (layer 1+2) is no longer available. Melody1200Plus (only this option, because of the same DSP being used) is also running out of production.
We want to warn, however, not to see Melody-Z2 as a replacement for the Melody1200-series. Melody-Z2 was intended as Paula replacement (plus MP2 hardware interesting back then). Melody1200 is much better from both a functional and quality point of view. We recommend preferring the Unity+Melody1200xxx solution, in the very least compare them. Colored technical readouts (PDF) can be found in the Docs area on our homepage.
More information can be ordered from sales@katodev.de. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

#1. TWF Opinion Polls#

There has only been only poll held this month which asked the question:
"What is your favourite type of game ?".

This was split into 10 different game types with the top 2 choices being
RPGs and Space Sims with the votes of 37 and 33 respectively. Well no
surprise you're all wanting a good space sim. :)

A new poll will appear soon.


#2. Explorer 2260 Update.#

Here are a few of the things that have been done for Explorer 2260 in
November:

    - RedHat 6 (LinuxPPC 3Q99) has been installed and, while lots of setup
work
      still needs to be finished, work on the Linux server core routines is
      continuing.

    - More background documents for the CEG are being created.


#3. Maim & Mangle Update.#

Work is continuing on M&M and here is what has happened in November on
development.

    - (temporary) removed the obj's shadow due a few bugs.

    - Optimized the 3D math routines.

    - The collision routine now working perfectly (in the sense that it
      recognize a collision situation.)

    - Removed a lot of bugs.

    - The loading routines are now a little bit faster.

    - New Warp3D supporting Object Editor for 68k (PPC version coming soon).

    - Further M&M game design thrashed out.


#4. Next News Update#

31st December 1999 / 1st January 2000 (Wahey!!) Or maybe /slightly/ later in
the new year. :)

~~~~~

All the best,
Ed.
