|AROS: Status-Update November 2007|
The AROS-Team shows on his Webpage a overview about the changes of the opensource AmigaOS-clon "AROS Research Operating System" (AROS):
AROS has gained lots of bugfixes and improvements in the lastest weeks. For istance, Neil Cafferkey has corrected some important bugs is his beloved AROS Installer; Nic Andrews has worked on his RTL8139 network driver; and Robert Norris has fixed file notifications, which previously broke preferences, just to name three. Robert Norris has added a SDL driver for linux hosted AROS. This lets you build a hosted AROS that doesn't require X (you don't even need it installed to build anymore). In theory this could help with getting hosted running on other platforms (anywhere SDL exists), however it's a little slower than the X driver. Matthias Rustler has ported ptplay.library to AROS. It renders Protracker modules into sound samples. Additionally he also ported ShellPlayer, a simple example player. They will be in nightly builds, in Extras/MultiMedia/Audio drawer. Matthias Rustler also made an initial port of Alain Thellier's Wazp3D to AROS. Wazp3D is a library intended to be compatible with the famous Warp3D.library for AmigaOS 68040, and it makes easier to port some 3D Amiga games to AROS. Wazp3D can also work as a software renderer, fooling applications looking for a 3D hardware driver. Michal Schulz has made some big steps further with his x86-64 port of AROS. The day of 64 bit AROS computing is getting near. In the meanwhile, Michal added also SSE instructions support to AROS. (cg) (Translation: aj)
