Richard Kapp wrote:
The GFX-BASE team has published an English spoken interview with Darius Brewka who is the author of the startmenu clone "AmiStart".

AmiStart is a new startmenu clone for AmigaOS which offers the usual functions as well as some special things like transparent menus, keyboard-shortcuts, drag and drop and more. We have spoken with Darius about his plans for the new beta of AmiStart which is supposed to be published soon and have asked the usual questions.

Amiga Arena: Full version + source code of DBase V3.4
In co-operation with "David Ekholm" Amiga Arena publishes the final version of DBase 3.4 with the free available source code. DBase is a little but fast database.

The source code has been created under the SAS compiler (6.xx).

After "ArtPro" and "Aual Illusion" it is another program on the site of Amiga Arena which is available for free development.

You can get more information in the download archive or by "David Ekholm" (

31.Mar.2002 Hyperion-Chat (AmigaExpo 2002) (Update)
The Amiga Expo 2002 Hyperion chat is now available for download!
Download: Amiga-Expo-2002-hyperion.mp3 (5,5 MB)

Some interesting snippets of information, posted by SlimJim:

  • Screenshots of Amiga OS 4.0 will be published in the first part of April.

  • Magic Menu and Birdie (among others) will be seamlessly integrated into the OS 4.0 interface.

  • The new OS 4.0 GUI will look quite different (i.e it will not just look like a fast OS 3.9).

  • Opus Magellan 2 has been licensed for OS 4.0 (details unknown).

  • For the moment, the new printer system is not due to arrive until Boingbag/OS 4.1.

  • The _latest_ MUI source code will be used (there was a question about this)

  • IBrowse2.3 will be quite some beast. It will be enhanced for OS4.0. Not just some Aminet update. It will still miss some features of Netscape/IE though. There is not time to fix all to OS4.0. Flash is planned to be implemented. IB will be _much_ more stable than it is now.

  • The guy that did the Warp-datatypes seems to be doing the new PPC-datatypes.

  • The datatype system as a whole is to get a complete overhaul later. There is not enough time to do that to initial release.

  • An office suit (Open office if I remember correctly) is being worked on. This is a 'high priority' for inclusion. (although it was not clear to me if it would be shipped initially)

  • The development of software -independent of company size- is difficult to predict. But Mr. Hermans seems quite confident of an end-user release in May.

AmigaOSXL: Experiences with the H&P Big-Tower 1800+ (Update)
Dietmar Knoll:
In my report I describe the experiences I have made with the Big-Tower. The eighth update includes some changes, that I describe on the top of the page. I have re-arranged, corrected and updated some parts. Further, I have extended the comments on BoingBag2 once again.

Next, I will re-write the chapter about "Patches for Amithlon".

If you look closely, you will find a little Easter egg, btw. In other words: Happy Easter! ;-) (ps)

Oliver Hummel (per Showcast-Stream der Amiga Expo in Baltimore) (ANF)

New C64 Commodore One
According to the internetradio broadcast from the Amiga Expo in Baltimore, there might arrive a successor of the C64 this year to market, the Commodore One.

Different to former "successors", which were in truth only common 486 pcs with an C64 emulation, this one will be a completley new design, as most as possible compatible to the C64. Interesting is that, different than the Aone, this will use custonchips again.

For sound there is "Monstersid", the grafics will be done from "super vic" with a maximun resolution of 1280x1024. (ps) (Translation: (ub)

CD32 & CDTV Emulator Akiko (for Windows) Version 1.5
Akiko 1.5, the CD32 & CDTV emulator for Windows was just released on the Airsoft Softwair homepage. This version is a major update with many new features and cool improvements: For example it's now possible to boot CD32 & CDTV games directly from their ISO image or from a folder on your harddisk. Additionally you can put the audio tracks as MP3s on your harddisk and Akiko will use and play them also (so you can also replace the music with your favorite soundtracks!). Finally Akiko supports some new CD32 & CDTV games and some fixes were done (concerning CD audio and Joypad emulation). And I removed the code protections for Speris Legacy, Worms and Alien Breed 3D because they are no longer necessary these days and so they only nerv the users. Akiko 1.5 can now be downloaded from the Airsoft Softwair web page (title link). (ps)
