Heise: Compaq Coming Up with a New Alpha Processor
»According to Compaq it's available from yesterday: the new Alpha processor 21264 with 833 MHz. By Compaq's account the fastest industrial processor of the world runs in the new AlphaServer ES40. This server was especially designed for database applications doing a high degree of calculations, such like e-business solutions basing on Oracle Software.
According to Compaq in Oracle Application Benchmark the ES40 slapped the opposers IBM H70 and Sun E450 with more than twice the results. Also in the case of other benchmarks like the SAP Business Warehousing and the SPEC CPU2000 the new admiral would be clearly ahead.«

Always use port 6667 for the channel #AmigaFun. IMPORTANT: don't write irc. in ahead. The above servers are complete, simply use them as they are for addresses.

The #AmigaFun homepage has been enhanced and updated. Most important: the help pages have been enhanced. In particular the English help pages included many errors which now hopefully have been fixed. Just drop in at the title link. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Heise: Napster Must Not (Completely) Go Offline
»Though the music exchange service Napster must not completely go offline, but has to stop illegal copying of copyrighted music. The court, which had to decide about the injunction in the context of the music industry's claim against Napster, confirmed this injunction meaning that Napster violated copyrights, but wants to have it changed. Because this decision to take Napster offline completely would have overshot. According to the current decision Napster has to stop the exchange of songs in the case of violation of copyrights. Until the injunction got changed it was delayed. But in fact this is about to withdraw Napster's foundation - except for they will come to terms with the owner of the copyrights before the injunction becomes effective.«

Amiga Future now also in English
On the Amiga Future homepage an interview with the programmer of Workbench 2000 has been released today. The interview can be found in the section INTERACTIVE of the homepage (was AKTION).

Besides, the Amiga Future homepage is available also in English from today on. The homepage has been translated 'by hand', not using a translator tool. Of course, there's an English version of the interview in the English part of the Amiga Future available. There's also a poll on the English start page and much more.

For expanding the English homepage the editorial staff is still looking for users which could translate the German texts every 1 - 2 weeks into the English. In the English section there are two buttons: the first stands for the normal and very up-to-date news of the Amiga Future that are translated online into English using a translator tool, and the second leads to "real" English news, powered by BoingWorld.

V³ v3.3.79beta
On 11. February 2001 Oliver Wagner has released the beta version v3.3.79 of the web browser 'V³'. It contains bugfixes, improvements and enhancements. For using this version a keyfile is needed. Besides this, Oliver Wagner points out that it is a beta version that contains several bugs and so mainly serves illustrating the actual state of development. Compared against the version v3.3.75beta dated 4. February the following has changed (among other things):
  • Bugfix: A serious bug in the scanner caused all numeric literals without decimal point interpreted as a 32 bit integer number, thus forced also numeric literals not being integers into this format. For example the initializing of the dates was affected.
  • Bugfix: Prefs - When all cookies were deleted, this state wasn't saved thus causing all cookies to be present again after a restart.
  • New: JS - It is now possible to set and form.action [].
  • New: JS - New functions: date.toLocaleString(), date.toUTCString(), date.toGMTString(), date.getMilliseconds() and date.setMilliseconds().
  • New: Layouter - support of percentage declaration within WIDTH and HEIGHT of the IMG and EMBED tag.
  • New: Layouter - supports now transparency in the background image.
  • Change: General - workaround for erraneous URLs of the kind: (e.g. missing '/' after the host).
  • Change: Rexx - OpenURL was changed into LoadURL and the old OpenURL version is used again. ARexx scripts and the openurl.library should now work.
  • Change: Net - When following a redirect the GET command will now be sent with the original URL as referer instead of the forwarding URL. This fixes problems with scripts that check the refer and depend on the behaviour of the MSIE [ SMS service].

The complete list of the changes is content of the readme.
