  • Added DOS disk support (3.5“ 720KB, Amiga Transformer)
  • Fixed a bug in the implementation of the RESET instruction (Amiga Transformer)
  • Fixed a bug that caused Paula to omit DSKBLK IRQs when no drive was selected (A-Max)
  • The ERSY bit in BPLCON0 now freezes the position counters (The Jetsons)
  • The BZERO bit in DMACON had wrong polarity when the Line Blitter was in use
  • Fixed the serial loopback cable (which was broken since v0.60)
  • The memory inspector has been updated. It can now display the bank map as it is seen by Agnus
  • Recalibrated the drive motor to rotate the disk at exactly 300rpm

Amigakit: Status update on Tabor/A1222
In a post on amiga.org, Matthew Leaman (Amigakit) has given a short status update on the A1222 motherboards which could be preordered in the "Early Adopter" program:

"A-EON is currently stalled on the prototype stage of the new v1.3 design of the A1222 Plus. This hopefully will be resolved soon as there is some additional help enlisted to get this over the line. Just working through the mundane NDA/legal stuff.
Regarding the AAA Bundle: for some time you can download the software, in the next week you will also be able to download the Viva Amiga movie from the Amisphere server. The digital download of this movie is part of the AAA Bundle." (cg) (Translation: (dr)

Hollywood plugin: RebelSDL 1.1
Press release: Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are proud to present RebelSDL 1.1. RebelSDL is a plugin for Hollywood that allows you to use SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) from Hollywood. This makes it possible to write scripts that utilize the host system's graphics hardware to create high-performance, butter-smooth 2D animation that is produced completely in hardware by the GPU of your graphics board.


RebelSDL 1.1 is a major update which contains several important improvements over the last release. First and foremost, RebelSDL is now available for AmigaOS 4 for the very first time. This allows you to write Hollywood scripts which take advantage of the latest Warp3D Nova and OpenGL ES technologies leading to dramatic performance boosts when drawing and scaling graphics. For MorphOS, RebelSDL is now also available in a special PowerSDL version. Since SDL2 on MorphOS doesn't currently support hardware acceleration, PowerSDL is a much better choice to make use of the graphics hardware for a better drawing performance. Finally, RebelSDL for Linux ARM comes in three different flavours now: Raspberry Pi (taking advantage of the Pi's custom hardware), OpenGL and OpenGL ES. This will allow you to get the most out of the ARM Linux of your choice. On top of that, there are also some other general new features for all platforms.

RebelSDL 1.1 is now available for free download for a multitude of platforms from the official Hollywood portal. The distribution archive also contains 20 example scripts and extensive documentation in various formats (PDF, HTML, CHM, AmigaGuide). (cg) (Translation: (dr)
