Bugfix: Amiga SDK with RedHat 6.2
Due to problems with the Ncurses packet Amiga SDK does not run on an unmodified RedHat 6.2 installation. Therefore a Ncurses fix done by Daniel Robbins is ready for download.

Simply unpack the archive amiga-ncurses.tar.gz under Linux using the following command:

cd /usr
tar xzvf amiga-ncurses.tar.gz

Now type in "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/amiga/lib" and then the Amiga SDK can be started with "intent_shell". (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Voyager 3.3 Alpha as well as Spurious Offers
Oliver Wagner released an alpha version of Voyager V3.3 on August, 4th 2000. This version is presentating the new layout engine. This alpha version is not ought to replace a running browser, due to essential features are still missing such like FORMs (objects are created but have no function yet), FRAMES, IFRAMES and JavaScript (code is present but not active yet). Sending in bug reports, missing features or similar therefore is not necessary.

At shareit.com spurious entries of Vapor programs at immense prices were made. These entries were not made by Vapor and hence should be left ignored.

Vapor belongs to the MorphOS alpha testers and there might be a V-port, but at the time beeing there are no fixed plans of doing one. Concentration points on finishing the new version for AmigaOS.

AmigAIM 0.9384 Beta
On 4th August 2000 Richard H. Poser released beta version 0.9384 of his AIM "AmigAIM". Since the last release there are the following changes:
  • New: Mail-Checking-System.
  • New "Mail-Check-Window" for sound and notifications.
  • The directory structure was slightly changed and should be readjusted at the first start of the software after the update.
  • At the first start one must select the user the program shall begin with, since this save format changed, too.
  • A Problem in the relogin system was fixed. The start window was send to sleep mode under many circumstanced, even if it realy should not do that.
  • There are still some CyberGuard/Enforcer hits, but those could only be reproduced random, so far.
  • The IO packet window now supports Cut'n Paste, so the last values bevore/after an error including all CyberGuard/Enforcer hits can be sent to the author.
  • Notice: In the case of Miami it is recommended to use at least Miami V2.1p, V3.2b or MiamiDX V1.0c - with those AIM was tested successfull.

AIM requires MUI V3.8 and serveral custom classes.

Coyote Flux Opens Temporary Website
Since the 68k->PPC assembly porter/language PPC680x0 was finished a little while ago, Coyote Flux has opened a temporary website at www.coyoteflux.tmfweb.nl

PPC680x0 will be released on Haage&Partner's StormC 4 CD appearing in October this year. Take a look at the website to find out more about PPC680x0, Burnin' Rubber 2000, Super Amicon and more...

PPC680x0 is an assembler program which is able to convert 680x0 sourcecode to PPC sourcecode. This could change all 68k programs easily to PPC. The programmers, by the way, are the guys who had to pose as a popular camera subject with their Amiga bobble hats on almost all fairs. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Heise: Quarrel about Words: After Explorer and Samba now ASP
«After Explorer, Webspace and Samba now another popular EDP term became the object of trademark quarrels: the specialist book author Volker Jungbluth asked several companies in the last weeks to refrain from using his wordmark "ASP".»

«1998, Jungbluth registered the describing term "Site Promotion" as wordmark and then sent the internet consultor Andreas Roemer a warning plus a cashing up of 1895,21 D-Mark (about US$900) because of alleged trademark violation.»

«The German ASP consortium which represents more than 60 companies, has called upon Jungbluth to draw back the registered trademark. Jungbluth denied this, said consortium speaker Werner Grohmann: ",Now our lawyers become active; currently an expert's report is beeing made."»

As a big thank-you to all X-Surf customers, the XSurf-IDE driver is available in the support-area for a free download now (not only today!). This would not have been possible without my retail partners who gave me financial help for this gift:

Software Hut (USA, 15%)
Eyetech (England, 5%)
KDH Datentechnik (Germay, 15%)
Vesalia Computer (Germany, 15%)
Eternity (Germany, 5%)

Please think about one of these retailers if you buy something for your Amiga next time. Special thanks must go to Eyetech again for the friendly permission to include their Samba-install-CD with the X-Surf.

Heise: Wave of dissuasions against Open Source Network Software Samba (Update)
«Offerors of support for the open source software Samba are effected by a wave of dissuasions. Several companies part of a list in the web recieved a letter demanding them no longer to offer, advertise for, distribute or utilize Samba for buissnes communiction. Samba is an application which allows to use Unix and Linux platforms for server and client in a Windows network. This free for download program belongs to the most popular successful projects of the open source software area. The name SaMBa comes from the SMB protocoll used in Windows networks.» Entire article at the titlelink (German).


In the meanwhile I have a notion that dissuasions are mutating into a marketing strategy and are no longer ought to enforce rights, but only to serve the purpose to arrest attention. The senders of these dissuasions can be sure of the entire press to jump at this subject. The advertising effect is invaluable, cause even negative advertising is in fact advertising, as already well known. That often very enthusiastic people who worked hard and often without any payment for their project are driven to economic ruin by this, is just the fly shit falling through the grid. :-(

Supplement 04 Aug 2000:
CMG statement on SAMBA
«In the meanwhile emerged the responsibility of name for open source software belongs to an Australian internet company. CMG will contact this company and try to achieve an agreement, so that the in Germany incidentally same name can no longer lead to any misconceptions.

At the same time CMG will stop the dissuasiveness procedure against the contacted companies, which just offer support for the open source software. Also no further dissuasivenesses are planned. After all it is not CMG's intention to harm the buisness of open source offerors or to handicap distribution or use of these products.»
