Espial Escape - Slim Webbrowser for AmigaDE
"Escape is a HTML4.01 webbrowser which just happens to work on AmigaDE thanks to its Java support. Escape is not only small, but fast and loaded with features including HTML4.01, DHTML and more."

On amiga.org you can read about it:

I noticed that the easiest way to install Espials Escape on the AmigaSDK was to simply unzip the *.jar files to the root. Sadly there was no archive on Espials homepage that made it easy for me to get them. So I mailed them about the problem. Now they have added an archive of Escape with the Jar files on their homepage.

Espial Escape is a slim webbrowser for smart devices which supports all modern web standards.

Payback Update
The first update for Payback is available. Several reported bugs were fixed and a screen scaling feature was added for slower processors. Also, new graphics were integrated.

There's also an update of the demo version, which raises the time limit of three to five minutes.

On the Payback website, an FAQ about Payback was opened which answers frequently asked questions. The game can be ordered directly in the online store.

In an interview with the Amiga-Future, programmer James Daniels describes Payback as follows: "The player assumes the role of a young, fleeing driver and attempts to become a big gangster boss. The game is entirely non-linear. To complete a level, the player has to collect a certain amount of points. How he achieves that is entirely up to him. You can follow the advice of the local Kingpin, uncover secret missions, or get into a fight." (unk) (Translation: unk)

New Screenshots of the Real-time RPG "Between the Lines"
Because of a harddisk crash, we have lost all source codes of our games "Crossfire II" and "Between the Lines". At least Crossfire II could partly be recovered, but it'll take several months to fully restore it.

As a compensation and the long time during which nothing happened on our homepage, there are a few new screenshots of the real time RPG BtL. (unk) (Translation: unk)

Amster


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.
