Some are plagiarisms of actually existing Commodore advertising posters, while others are freely invented motifs that advertise various Amiga models.

Programming language: AMOS Professional Unity Alpha 2, SpecialFX-Plugin
'AMOS Professional Unity' is Frédéric 'AmiDARK' Cordier's second attempt to improve the classic BASIC compiler AMOS Professional and retrofit AGA support. The second alpha release includes the following new features:
  • AGA Sprites with 16,32 and 64 pixels width
  • AGA Sprites combination (like original Amos Professional but with AGA capabilities)
  • Sprite color palette selection
  • New system ScreenFX to create Stunning visual effects in Amos Professional Unity screens
  • Simple Rainbox FX developed using the ScreenFX
A list of the new or extended commands can be found on the official website, AMOS Unity Alpha 2 can be downloaded from Github.

Cordier also provides SpecialFX, the first version of a library that implements visual effects and already takes advantage of AMOS Unit's new AGA-compatible features. (cg) (Translation: (bb)

Search engine and proxy: FrogFind! makes the web more IBrowse-compatible
The programmer of 'FrogFind!' regularly plays around with his old 68k-based Macs, which don't have up-to-date browsers or the hardware power needed for the modern web. To mitigate this problem, he has developed a portal that displays search results (from DuckDuckGo) and generates a highly simplified version of the desired page when a search result is clicked.

To achieve this, FrogFind! uses a PHP port of Firefox's "reading mode," which automatically removes elements such as menus, headers or footers and displays only the actual content of a web page. FrogFind! then simplifies the result of this operation again and delivers a page in HTML2 standard, where originally embedded graphics are now linked at the end of the document.
