Amster News
Amster is a program for downloading of authorized MP3 music files from Napster. One also can let the program (client) search for music files made available by other participants or can chat with other participants.

Yesterday the Amster source code was put on SourceForge. Interested developers can participate in further development under 'CVS access' (explanation in addition).

Since it wasn't clear to me what CVS access means I asked about this on our internal mailing list. Ruediger Hanke took the task to give an extended explanation. Because I can imagine our readers to be interested in this, too, I post his answer here:

What is CVS access?

CVS = Concurrent Versions System, a program for source code management. Among other things the program saves old versions of the source code, so one can trace changes from one version to another. Furthermore it coordinates changes in source codes if several developers are working on one single program. Else there would happen situations like follows:
  • developer A loads source ab.c
  • developer B loads source ab.c
  • developer A saves source code ab.c including changes done by him
  • developer B saves source code ab.c including changes done by him and by doing so overwrites the changes of developer A.

CVS cares for changes not to be accidently overwritten by somebody and in the case of need announces conflicts caused by changes. Thus it is essential if several developers are working on one single program.

Amster seems to be under CVS control. "CVS access" in this case means that people wanting to participate in programming Amster can get access to the CVS server managing the program's source codes. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Plextor Stops SCSI
Plextor Europe will stop production and distribution of SCSI CDRom drives this very year. As reason for this the company named regressive sales figures as well as problems in providing components. In the long term this would also affect the American and Japanese market. One would want to address the DVD market segement with devices with USB and Firewire interfaces in the future.

»IBM and Hitachi are to jointly design and make a range of selected server and semiconductor components. The plan is to speed up product development.

The agreement covers future versions of IBM's PowerPC processors, selected chips to support Hitachi's VOS operating system, and technologies such as multi-chip ceramic modules and memory cache components for use in IBM and Hitachi servers.

Hitachi will also sell rebadged PowerPC-based servers and embrace AIX 5L as a strategic platform.« (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Amiga Arena News
Since I cannot affect as much as I would like to on my own I decided to take a chance for a partnership with the Fun Time World! The Amiga Arena homepage will remain what it is, now, and I hope to be able to act even more effective in this partnership than before !
Olaf Koebnik - Amiga Arena

Amiga Arena - Fun Time World Partnership
The shareware market suffered from evaluations of the past years. The amount of new releases decreased very much every year. To stop this evaluation the pages Fun Time World and Amiga Arena agree to a partnership to patronize the shareware market. This partnership's objective is to call user's attention to developments at the shareware market.

This is to serve the purpose of higher sales and to motivate developers to continue to develop new and better programs, at the same time. In the future by a closer cooperation with the developers user's wishes shall be taken into account more than this has been done before. In further steps registration of programs from foreign countries shall be facilitated.

It will be determined from surveys which kind of software is in demand most. Special wishes from now on can be sent to the Fun Time World and to the Amiga Arena. Programmers who would agree to offer their programs at a more cost-effective price for a certain period of time, can contact the Amiga Arena at any time.

Amiga Arena
The Amiga Arena is a shareware / freeware support site with special prices for shareware software, links, interviews, and full versions of shareware software which will not be further developed.

Fun Time World
The Fun Time World page provides the Amiga users with topical news, test of software and hardware, as well as important information since several years. Meantime the service has been extended by adding an online shop as well as auction and forum sections. (unk) (Translation: (unk)
