A500 accelerator board: Wicher 500i (Ex) supports SD cards
The accelerator boards of the Wicher 500i series are designed for internal use and now support SD cards, which are connected to the SPI bus of the Wicher boards. If you are going to use the SD card recommended by the developer, you have to remove some resistors in the Amiga.

A new version of the Wicher system software WicherInstall has been released as well: Version 1.6 provides the support of the SD cards. (cg) (Translation: (dr)

Javascript: TAWS - The Amiga Workbench Simulation 0.29
TAWS ("The Amiga Workbench Simulation") is a Javascript simulation of the Amiga-Workbench 1.0 - 4.1 for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and Apple-WebKit-Browser (including Odyssey).

Any kind of feedback the author Michael Rupp would very appreciate. He still is searching for support for the French translation. His work can be supported by a donation from inside TAWS.

Changes of version 0.29:
  • Complete french localisation - many thanks to Claude 'Amiguy' Malter
  • Boot animation in «OS 1.x»- and «OS 2.x» mode which can be halted with «Ctrl-D» to get a command prompt and resumed with «LoadWB». (example).
  • OS 4.x window layout: implementation of the dots in the scrollbars. They are hidden if the bar gets too small.
  • OS 4.x window layout: requester symbols are now preloaded.
  • Skinning system: the files «CycleSel.png» and «CycleDis.png» are now optional. If they are missing, «Cycle.png» is used.
  • Kickstart graphic: Version edited to fit OS 4.1 FE Update 1
  • ListBox: the needed image files are now preloaded.
  • Adjustment for OS 4.1 FE Update 1 on «Workbench / Version, Copyright ...»
  • Amiga Early Startup Control:
    • Implementation of «Boot With No Startup-Sequence». Type «LoadWB» to resume booting.
    • Reworked the layout to have it pixel-perfect with all browsers.
    • Adjustment for OS 4.1 FE Update 1 to show USB entries at «Expansion Board Diagnostic»
  • AmigaShell:
    • new command «LoadWB», incl. the parameters «-debug», «delay» and «cleanup»
    • new command «Wait», incl. the parameters «sec», «secs», «min», «mins» and «until» and the possibility to cancel with «Ctrl-C».
    • new commands «NewCLI» and «NewShell» (excl. the parameters «window» and «from» for now)
    • «Echo»: implemented support to output the version variables «$kickstart» und «$workbench».
  • Optimisations for OS 1.x:
    • The fuelbar is now drawn after the rest of the window.
    • Copying the content a disk by dragging the disk into a window is now prevented (this is only possible from OS 2.0 and above).
    • Outputting the correct message when trying to duplicate the RAM-Disk: «This disk cannot be copied»
    • Implementation of some special case in OS 1.2: if a file is moved within the RAM-Disk but does already exist in the destination drawer, the existing file is overwritten without notice or anything.
  • Bugfixes:
    • The list of volumes in «Workbench / Open volume» is re-sorted after a volume has been renamed.
    • Rename the drawer «System» now works.
    • Correction in setting the menubar text when switching the focus from a program window back to the Workbench. Previously, it stayed «Workbench Screen».
    • Icon «DiskCopy»: after showing the message the previously active window it now reactivated.
    • Requester in «OS 1.x»-mode: size correction when showing the message «Volume X is write protected».
    • Requester in «OS 1.x»-mode: clipping functionality of the sizer gadget works again (bug since v0.28).
    • OS 1.x window layout: «CLI» and «MergeMem» work again (bug since v0.28).
    • The screenbar gadgets were left in selected state if a window was currently selected (bug since v0.28).
    • Preferences with system-font «Topaz»: in the Cycle «Language» the entry «русский»» was not using the Topaz font.
    • Palette: the background was not fully filled by the background patttern (f.e. when using the AmiKit-presets).
    • ListBox in OS4-style: correction of the left and right space between list entries and border.
    • Safari and Odyssey Web Browser: correction of the ListBox scrollbar
    • Internet Explorer and MS Edge: Das Rename-Fenster wird nun bei der Eingabe von «a» nicht mehr geschlossen, falls der Cursor noch im Textfeld liegt.
    • AmigaShell (all browsers except Firefox): correction of the clipping when making the window smaller.
    • Amiga Early Startup Control: «Display Options», «Use» and «Display Options» onc more: the selection was lost.
    • Amiga Early Startup Control: no more JavaScript error when resizing the browser's window.

AmigaOS 4: Blitzbasic replacement BlitzMax
BlitzMax is one of the replacements of Mark Sibly's BASIC dialect BlitzBasic, which among others allows object oriented programming and adapts the graphic API to OpenGL. The source code of BlitzMax was released in April 2014. Now an Amiga user has ported the compiler to AmigaOS 4.

Graphic support for Max2d with MiniGL as well as Audio driver and networking support are already implemented. Support for joysticks and MaxGUI still is missing. BlitzMax requires an installed AmigaOS-SDK. The compiler has to be built up from the sources by the users themselves.

The author has pointed out that this is the "first Amgia contribution". He also wrote: "The level of effort was considerable as the back-end of PPC compiler had to be re-coded correctly for System V ABI vs the original Apple OSX ABI. AmigaOS applicable defines where required in Build system and Runtime but seems to be working well. I appreciate all feedback good and bad." (cg) (Translation: (dr)
