First draft of the GAUHPIL data base online
The GAUHPIL (Geographical Amiga Users Home Page Internet List) is a list created and moderated by Dietmar Knoll containing websites of Amiga users sorted by continents and countries. Right now is the GAUHPIL migrating to a MySQL based database solution. Under the title link you can find a description of the current state of things and of course a link to the first draft.

The start page is now localized into German/English. New are the lists for each single continent. The users can be found as before sorted in alphabetical order below their countries, in addition you can now query single countries or search for single terms.

Things to do are a form for entering new links, a form (with password request) for changing existing links, a dynamic list of new links and a dynamic list of lost links.

For now, the GAUHPIL contains 867 users in 38 countries. (nba) (Translation: (wk)

Video Toaster Flyer: Source Code Released
On the source code for the Video Toaster Flyer by NewTek has been released as a gift to Amiga users. Previously Amiga Video Toaster Flyer Character Generator and Toaster Paint had been released.

Newtek was founded in 1991 by Tim Jenison and partners. Their Amiga Video Toaster enabled the production of video at drastically lower prices than the studio equipment that had been available until that time. In 1994 came the Newtek Video Toaster Flyer, tapeless processing hardware.

With this gesture by Newtek, opening the source code, the world doesn't just get the first video production system in a box. It gets the first open source realtime video processing system for the Amiga.

The Amiga Video Toaster Flyer Character Generator supports among other things Postscript, Real-time Scrolls, and professional-quality crawls and titling of live or pre-taped videos and static pictures.

ToasterPaint is a 24-Bit paint program with tools for drawing, coloring, tinting, blending, and warping of pictures. (snx) (Translation: (dm)
