System-Patch for A3000/4000: ApolloFix loads 680x0.library to OnBoard-RAM
André 'Ratte' Pfeiffer has written a patch for A3000-/A4000-users which always loads the 68040 and 68060 libraries to the virtual memory of the main board. This helps Apollo accelerator boards working without any problems with the reset-routines of some versions of the 68060.library. The author supposes that this patch improves the system stability of other accelerator boards as well. (cg) (Translation: (dr)

MorphOS 3.2 released
Press release: The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the public release of MorphOS 3.2, which introduces support for Power Mac G5 workstations, iBook G4 laptops and additional PowerBook G4 models.

The 3.2 release also has a strong focus on improved network support with a completely new and improved NetStack core as well as support for wireless networks. In addition, there are several new network-related tools such as VNC client, a Remote Desktop Client and a tool showing detailed network statistics.

As usual, the latest release also offers many new features and bug fixes. For an overview of the included changes, please read our release notes.

We strongly urge new users to carefully read our installation and troubleshooting guides before they attempt to install MorphOS for the first time. Existing users can upgrade via the familiar procedure but are encouraged to read the guides as well. MorphOS 3.2 is available for download in our files section. (snx)

Text viewer: EvenMore 0.77, with MorphOS-port
Chris Perver's text viewer EvenMore now is also available as MorphOS-port. Changes in version 0.77:
  • Sped up scrolling by storing some commonly used values from nexted objects in variables instead. Also did the same for freeing memory for plugins.
  • Updated OpenURL library code for version 7.10. Hopefully this will allow the OpenURL function to work on MorphOS.
  • The VANILLAKEY event was stopping the string gadgets from working on the MorphOS port. Changed code to use MapRawKey() instead.
  • Now uses ScrollRaster() function instead of ClipBlit() for scrolling window contents. ClipBlit was faster on AmigaOS 3, but did not work whenever a window was moved out of the screen on MorphOS.

Flickerfixer: Indivison AGA Mk2 CR A1200/4000T
From now on the Indivision AGA Mk2 is available again in different shops. Individual Computers has called its slightly reworked version "Cost Reduced" - the DVI-port now is molded and "components of the small DVI-connector board have now moved to the main flickerfixer". There are not any other changes.

Due to the changed size of the board (picture) maybe the Indivision Mk2 AGA does not collide with a Blizzard Vision any longer but this could not be tested by the developer.

Jens Schönfeld wrote: "The new version "Indivision AGA MK2cr" uses a different connector for the DVI cable. It gets in the way of electrolytic capacitor CE164C in the A4000T. If you want to use the new version in the A4000T, you need to replace that capacitor with a lower-profile ceramic type." (cg) (Translation: (dr)

MorphOS: Return to PowerUP-support?
Version 1.4.5 of the PowerPC operating system MorphOS, which still is available, was the last version which did support accelerator boards developed by phase 5.

Now two screenshots have been discovered which show the still unreleased version MorphOS 3.2 on an Amiga: morphos_pup3_1.jpg, morphos_pup3_2.jpg. (snx) (Translation: (dr)
