Jikes V1.13
Kriton Kyrimis has released version 1.13 of the open source Java-compiler 'Jikes' for AmigaOS and AmigaDE (AmigaSDK). The compiler distinguishes by high speed and is therefore a good choice for extensive projects.

The compiler has been developed by Philippe Charles and David Shields for alphaWorks-program from IBM. The current homepage of the compiler is situated on IBM - developerWorks.

You can download the different versions for Amiga under the title link. Besides the compiler you need the Java-run-time-classes e.g. from Sun or the open source Java-implementation Kaffe. You can find a Kaffe-version for AmigaOS which also supports under the Geek Gadgets X11-port graphics under Amiga Jikes FAQ from Kriton Kyrimis.

The version of Amiga works without ixemul-library. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Golem: House searching at Met@box
»Public prosecution investigates because of suspicion of investment and share price imposture.
This morning the public prosecution searched the offices of Met@box. This is connected with the investigation which has been done since February of this year against the responsible members of board because of the suspicion of investment and share price imposture as well as the possible insider trade. The company has promised unlimited support to the investigators.«

FormAldiHyd V2.2
There is a new version of FormAldiHyd which is a driver for Aldi, AipTek Hyperpen and WacomIV compatible graphic trays.

The support of the macro keys as well as the possibility of playing sounds when clicking the pin have been added. FormAldiHyd now finally works with the multi I/O cards MultiFace and IOBlix. Of course a lot of bugs have benn fixed and many minor details added (see readme).

Ralph Reuchlein on ANF is Not Down...
Yesterday I was pointed out that AmigaWorld obviously cannot be accessed. But still works only the `international` DNS-entry is missing - according to DENIC "Record last updated on 26-Feb-2001" -.

You can access the site under If you want to read the programs support sites you have to do it in the following way, e.g for MUIbase: (Do not forget the slash at the end!). Ralph Reuchl (unk) (Translation: (unk)

New version of SiteWay-modules: WebColor 1.2
WebColor is a helpful tool for creating and editing HTML-colours. You can choose the colour in 24 Bit mode or it can be reduced to the so called "web-palette". The Workbench palette colours can be used and the VGA- and Netscape-colour names are also supported. WebColor is part of the SiteWay project.

WebColor can now adopt each colour from each window or screen using a pipette (...which turned out to be very useful!). (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Interview with Thomas Knäbel, pblan GmbH
Martina Jacobs from asked the CEO of the bplan GmbH some interesting questions:

Amiga-News: The Pegasos specification basically corresponds to the Zico specification from Amiga, Inc. In your announcement you talked about the hardware, after it was technically enabled, to be utilized for system software verification. Are there plans to also make the Pegasos prototype available to Amiga, Inc. for Amiga product verification?

Thomas Knäbel: In the first step we conceive the BIOs and boot software of the Pegasos hardware for system software . When these are working faultless (i.e. it will then already be possible to start Linux) the hardware will be available for software developers (so for Amiga, too).

Amiga-News: In the comments on your announcement on Michael Garlich from Titan-Computer was talking about AmigaOS 3.1 - 3.9 will run on the Pegasos hardware, until the software would address the AGA chip-set. Is this true and if so, how broad is this downwards compatibility? Will it be possible to run style guide conformable applications and current available games on the Pegasos hardware under AmigaOS 3.1 to 3.9?

Thomas Knäbel: The current software stage allows to execute the following kinds of applications:
  • All of the AmigaOS 3.1 - 3.9 programs which do NOT directly address the Amiga chip-set. That is to say programs accessing the system via the AmigaOS' API are executable.
  • PowerUp programs (not directly accessing the hardware)
  • WarpUP programs (not directly accessing the hardware)
Amiga-News: Furthermore Mr. Garlich was talking about a PCI-AGA card was in consideration. Of course this makes Amiga users' hearts beat faster. Are you reflecting such thing regarding Pegasos?

Thomas Knäbel: We are taking this into account.

Amiga-News: The Classic-Amiga not only has the AGA chip-set for custom chip. Standard for sound output is the internal sound chip (Paula). Will the Classic-Amiga's sound chip be emulated by the Pegasos system and/or are there other solutions for sound output under AmigaOS via the Pegasos' integrated sound sub-system (e.g. similar to AHI on the Amiga)?

Thomas Knäbel: The Amiga's original audio output is made possible by a respective emulation. Programs utilizing AHI are supported directly.

Amiga-News: Is there something you would like to say to the Amiga users?

Thomas Knäbel: On this occasion we would like to thank all of the Amiga users and software developers who had to manage things without new hardware for a long period of time. We are sure to be able to offer to all of these Amiga enthusiasts a hardware which meets the requirements of a modern computer system.

Amiga-News: Thanks a lot for this interview and much success for the future.

New project: TAWS - The Amiga Workbench Simulation
TAWS is a JavaScript project with the aim to convert the look & feel of our beloved Workbench to a browser.
Many Amiga-related sites use the l&f of the Workbench for navigation, so I had the idea to perfect it.
Feedback is wanted; I am interested in others point of view and if I should go on with the project or not. (unk) (Translation: (unk)
