AmigaOS 4: Beta version of E-UAE-GUI
Under the title link there is a new beta version of a graphical user-interface for the Amiga emulator E-UAE ( reported).

Costel 'Cyborg' Mincea regrets that finishing the bounty will still take a while. Therefore he has published this beta version in order to demonstrate the progress of this project. The archive includes only the executable files uae as well as make_hdf and is based on the latest E-UAE-version.

Compiling this beta version was not done with the latest GCC/binutils-version. Therefore UAE may not work on Sam440ep-boards as fast as possible. Besides E-UAE itself includes a bug which caused a crash at the computer of the author after the second start of the program. But the AHI-bug was fixed. (snx) (Translation: (dr)
