Zune - Open Source Reimplementation of MUI
Zune is a project to reimplement Stefan Stuntz' MUI as Open Source. To achieve this, the project makes use of the API and the freely redistributable includes of the MUI SDK only. The project is based on the LPGL.
Currently Zune is developed under Linux. It is however planned to be portable to other Unixes and, if possible, more or less easily portable for Windows and BeOS.
The project is 20% finished. This includes a good dozen key classes like Notify, Window, Group, Area, Text, Image and the dynamic loading of classes as well as other features.
The current source code can be downloaded as tgz archive from the homepage. On this page, you can find some screenshots of the GUI system.
A mailinglist is available from EGroups. Non-members have access to the archive, too. The list can be subscribed by sending an empty eMail to zune-subscribe@egroups.com or with the form on the bottom of the homepage.
A CVS repository is planned, all participation is warmy welcomed. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Saku 99: Petro Tyschtschenko about MCC and OS 3.5
Petro Tyschtschenko was unable to attend the Saku 1999 in Finland in person, but gave those present a short status report on development by phone, and made a point not to panic.
Moreover, Petro Tyschtschenko said that he was not fired, and will have a meeting with the new President of Amiga soon. Additionally, he said that AmigaOS 3.5 will be shipped by end of September and that the MCC will appear, however the schedule might be delayed a little.
More information about the meeting can be found at batman.jytol.fi/~saku/english/. A MP3 (5 MB) with the speech of Petro Tyschtschenko is available for download: saku99sp.mp3. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

THE  FAST ATA-2/EIDE CONTROLLER

In recent times, the extremely dynamic progress in the mass production
technology of data storage media has resulted in a huge increase
of their capacity and speed. It is especially apparent in the devices
which make use of the FAST ATA-2/EIDE standard of communication with
computers.
Enhanced IDE is at present the most common controller standard for
hard drives, CD-ROM drives, CD-RW drives, DVD drives, etc.

The Amiga 1200 has a built-in hard disk controller in the IDE standard.
However, only the PIO 0 mode of operation has been implemented in the
Amiga 1200, which is the slowest of all PIO modes with a maximum
transfer rate of about 3 MB/s.

The FAST ATA-2/EIDE Controller idea has been based upon the
assumption to fully use the currently produced devices in
the FAST ATA-2/EIDE standard with their increased speed and capacity.
The aim of this solution is to adapt the existing Amiga computer
systems to the new, many times more effective devices, while retaining
full compatibility with the existing software and hardware installed
in the system.

The FAST ATA-2/EIDE Controller has been designed to fit inside the
Amiga 1200 in its standard casing or in any Tower-type casing.
The controller works with two EIDE ports, which can accommodate up
to four devices. Apart from the PIO 0 standard, necessary for
booting up the Amiga computer from a hard disk and for accepting
the oldest types of devices, the card also provides for fast
PIO 3 and PIO 4 modes.



THE  FAST ATA-2/EIDE CONTROLLER FEATURES

The  FAST ATA-2/EIDE Controller with its many features represents
the highest technology controller in its category. The following
list describes some of these features:

Fast transfer rate of up to 16.6 MB/s

The  FAST ATA-2/EIDE Controller with its maximum transfer rate
of 16.6 MB/s in the PIO 4 mode offers a huge capacity reserve for
fast mass storage devices, especially for fast hard drives.
Therefore, applications may run much faster if they can count on
fast access to large data files.

Support of ATAPI standard devices

The  FAST ATA-2/EIDE Controller implements the ATAPI standard as
well, for use with devices like CD-ROM drives, DVD drives, etc.
This enables the connection of ATAPI-standard devices to the Amiga
with no need for the installation of additional software.

Two buffered and terminated EIDE ports

The controller operates with two EIDE ports, which enable
installation of up to four IDE/EIDE/ATAPI devices. Both controller
ports are fully buffered and terminated in accordance with the
recommendations set forth in the ATA-3 specification.

Fully compatible with hard drives of over 4 GB capacity

Limitations on the size of hard disks have been overcome in the
FAST ATA-2/EIDE Controller. The  FAST ATA-2/EIDE Controller may be
used with hard drives of over 4 GB capacity with no need to change
the FastFileSystem used so far for file management.

Automatically configured devices

The Controller automatically recognises any devices attached to it,
negotiates the highest possible data transfer rates, switches the
devices into its appropriate mode and performs data transfers at
their maximum transfer rates.

Automatic recognition of the processor type

The  FAST ATA-2/EIDE Controller automatically detects processor type
used and optimises and modifies some software routines
in order to achieve the highest possible data transfer rate between
the controller and the computer memory.

32-bit access

The computer recognises the controller as a 32-bit device configured
in the address space of the previous IDE controller, which has been
disconnected. Full 32-bit operation of the controller combined with
very efficient software guarantees a significant increase in the
speed of your computer.

Other features of the  FAST ATA-2/EIDE Controller:

* 2 devices in different modes of operation (PIO 3 or PIO 4)
  may be connected simultaneously to each of the ports without speed
  reduction.
* New mass storage data verification procedure free of ROM-based errors.
* The software installation is performed automatically by the
  installation programme script found in the enclosed floppy disk.

Digital Images suspending Amiga development
Reply-To:        digital-images-news@egroups.com
From:            Stuart Walker
To;              digital-images-news@egroups.com
Date:            Fri, 03 Sep 1999 23:20:52 +0000
Subject:         [digital-images-news] Digital Images Update

To Amiga users worldwide,

Due to recent announcements and problems with Amiga, Digital Images regrets
that we will be suspending all AmigaMCC projects including Sabrina Offline.
Space Station 3000 and Wipeout 2097 will be released as planned, but we will
be suspending all other Amiga developments until further notice.

Everyone behind Digital Images has enthusiastically supported the Amiga
through the good times and the bad times. But with the recent troubles with
Amiga, the entire team has unanimously decided to suspend all Amiga
developments (with the exception of Space Station 3000 and Wipeout 2097). We
regret to have to take these measures, but Digital Images cannot afford to
spend time, resources and money developing for a computer which now, as it
seems may never appear.

We hope that everybody reading this understands our position as this is the
last thing that any of us would ever have wanted to do, but Amiga have made
promise after promise that something would appear, but it has not.

We deeply regret this decision, but it is a final measure that has to be
taken. We wish that we wouldn't have to go this far, but we now have no
other option - it is the last thing that any of us wanted to do. We would
appreciate it if everybody understood our position and wouldn't send e-mails
of anger and abuse. We have done everything in our power to avoid this, but
it just isn't possible.

If the Amiga does indeed rise again, which we hope it does, we will return.

We hope that you will enjoy our upcoming releases of Space Station 3000 and
Wipeout 2097.

If you do have any questions or queries concerning this announcement, please
e-mail info@digital-images.demon.co.uk

We thank you all once again for your loyal and devoted support.

Kind Regards,

Stuart Walker
Digital Images

Since today, the English Amiga news page carries the following:

Allthough it is now officially confirmed on the Amiga pages that Collas has resigned, it seems it doesn't qualify for a statement on their own, since the link leads to Yahoo news. I simply can't find words for this. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

CCC Press Release about MS Crypto API Backdoor
Press Information from Chaos Computer Club
Microsoft Operating Systems with builtin Backdoor:
Secure cryptography with Windows jeopardized
By detailed research with the WindowsNT operating system by an American Security Software developer, a massive software backdoor could be revealed in the operating systems Windows95, 98, NT and Windows 2000 (beta), which is likely dating back to an initiative by the US secret service NSA. This has a heavy impact on Microsoft's operating systems security.
After the initiatives of the American secret service NSA (National Security Agency) for worldwide communications control by means of internationally standarised regulation of encryption have suffered severe setbacks, now obviously it is attempted to reach the same goals by implementing backdoors in the American software products dominating the market. (Rest of the press release at the title link.)

I consider it a shame how US NSA (and German authorities, too!) violate the most basic civil rights "for the greater good". Even worse, they get away with spying on your eMail, your phone, your whatever, because they "are the good ones"... yeah, sure. (mb) (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Kamil Iskra in c.s.a.p


gcc 2.95.1 for AmigaOS
Kamil Iskra has released the binaries of "gcc 2.95.1" for AmigaOS. They can be found on the GeekGadgets servers at amiga/m68k/alpha/misc/gcc-2.95.1-bin020.tgz (6.47 MB).
They are compiled for 68020+ CPUs, and can be loaded residently. The sourcecodes are available by anonymous login from the GeekGadgets CVS server.
With gcc version 2.95, the seperate branches of gcc and egcs are merged back together, so GeekGadgets again uses exclusively gcc.
Improvements have been made e.g. in register handling, so the previously common "fixed or forbidden register was spilled" error should be less frequent with this version.
More informations about gcc 2.95 are available at gcc.gnu.org/gcc-2.95/features.html. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Met@box: Informations about amiJoe1200
Some time ago, we asked Met@box about some info about the amiJoe1200 board, and recieved the following eMail by Thomas Rudloff:

This is the latest Info, newer will surely surface in one or two weeks based on the latest developments.

Up to 143 times as fast as an original Amiga(TM) 1200 (calculated by Motorola specifications at 333 MHz)

That's the amiJoe...
- the amiJoe1200 is the ideal CPU-expansion to bring the Amiga(TM) 1200 to the PowerPC(TM) era.

This does the amiJoe1200
By using the powerful PPC750 (G3) CPU, the high-performance backside cache and the PCI bridge, the Amiga(TM) 1200 turns into a modern computer. Due to the integrated 68k emulation, current Amiga software stays usable, while PPC(TM) native programs can make use of the full speed advantage.
The RAM expansion to up to 512 MB is done with PC66 SO-DIMMs common to the laptop scene. Of course, the amiJoe1200 has a real-time clock.
