ilbmdtPPC V45.2
Stephan Rupprecht has made version 45.2 of his datatype for ILBM pictures for PPC available for download. Download: ilbmdtPPC.lha - 7 kB

We just got the following warning from Stephan Rupprecht regarding his ilbmdt for PPC:
Version 45.2 of my ilbmdt for PPC unfortunately doesn't work with PlayCD included with AmigaOS 3.9 (crash), at the time being. Unfortunately I don't know the reason why, yet, since PlayCD crashes on my system independent from the ilbm.datatype installed.

The Best Of Airsoft Softwair Gold Edition CD-ROM on CD32
Some users of the The Best Of Airsoft Softwair Gold Edition CD-ROM informed me that the CD-ROM also boots on a CD32 and asked if I planned that. Well, the The Best Of Airsoft Softwair Gold Edition CD-ROM works on the CD32 with a nice intro indeed, but it cannot be used completely without an expansion like the SX1 or SX32. If the user has such an expansion he can use the CD-ROM completely otherwise only the intro is shown.

Tao Group and PSION Announce New Co-operation for Enterprise Sector
CeBIT, March 22nd, 2001 -- Tao Group and PSION Teklogix today announced a major new relationship to provide enterprise customers with faster and smarter JavaTM applications running on EPOC. This new development will be showcased on the PSION stand at CeBIT, Hall 19, booth D39.

Using Tao Group's innovative intent, JavaTM Java Technology Edition (JTE), developers will now be able to design and run advanced Java applications, never before possible on the EPOC platform. Enterprise applications can now run on a broader range of mobile devices, allowing faster delivery of critical business information - vital in sectors such as field services and mobile sales.

Jamie Bodley-Scott, Market Development Manager, Psion Teklogix, commented: "By developing this platform, we are recognising the vital importance that high performance Java is playing within the corporate environment. intent provides a fully SUN certified implementation of PersonalJava - significantly increasing speed, flexibility and making multi-threading a reality in the mobile enterprise arena."

Francis Charig, Chairman of Tao said: "The importance of EPOC in wireless devices is increasingly in evidence, especially in regions such as Japan. Tao is working with PSION to ensure that the very best multimedia and Java technologies will become available on EPOC-based appliances and to help drive EPOC products into future generations of digital devices."

Tao Group will be joining the PSION stand at CeBIT, Hall 19 Booth D39, from 22nd March to 28th March 2001. (unk) (Translation: unk)

StarGATE Newsletter 03/2001-1
The brand new, entirely reworked website of StarGATE Software was finished and put online and can be accessed at

The essential changes in very short and quickly:
  1. Entirely new (hopefully better) design.
  2. Easier to use and navigate.
  3. Main focus of the site is now exclusively the "Software" area, both for Classic Amigas and the new AmigaDE and for Java.
  4. The pages have been entirely translated into English language.
  5. StarGATE now has it's own domain.

As a matter of course some software products are available, too. Among those the initial AmigaDE programms by StarGATE. I hope you will like the new pages. Suggestions, critism, enhancement proposals, and hints of course are always welcome.

Finally some words about the software section in general: Since it is measurable that the Classic Amiga has had it's time and the new AmigaDE or AmigaOne are moving forward new developments mainly will be for the AmigaDE. (unk) (Translation: unk)

DiamondBOX Version 1.10
Nikolaj Kiær Thygesen has created a website for his Amiga painting program 'DiamondBOX' which you can access via the title link. The program is GFX compatible and requires at least AmigaOS 3.0, 8 MB of RAM, 1 MB free harddisk space, an Amiga with CPU 68020+, and of course a bit of creativity.

1.) Changes in staffing level:
Our team now exists of 10 staffers. Rico Pook took over the web design for us and we would like to cordially welcome him on this occasion.

2.) Domain:
X-CELLENCE at last could take their domain and is reachable under, now.

3.) Cooperative team management:
We separated X-CELLENCE into divisions. Each of the divisions is working on their project independent from the other teams. This allows maximum of flexibility which is especially advantageous in the shrinking Amiga market.

4.) Wanted ....
Due to division of X-CELLENCE we are facing a staffing problem. We still are wanting graphicians and programmers. For those we would prefer people out of the Amiga community. Graphicians should be familiar with 2D/3D tools on AMIGA and/or PC. They would work in the divisions "GOLD" and "EAST".
I.e.: "SCR2K" (FunRacer) and "NYN" (3D ActionAdventure Shooter). We are exclusively wanting programmers for the AmigaDE. The Classic market is no longer taken into account by us. (unk) (Translation: unk)

Alternative: Sony Vaio with Crusoe-CPU
The Sony notebook Vaio Picturebook/C1VE comes out very innovative: it's equipped with a Crusoe CPU and an integrated camera and weighs less than two pounds. Does the notebook worth a price of 4,500DM?

This notebook of the Sony C1V line is fast in compared to PDA and quite slow in compared to a 'real' notebook. But the price for it is placed in the notebook range where 4,500DM are not any longer a dram, meantime. (unk) (Translation: unk)

Amiga2001 - 1. April - Tip
Press release: Some of you have commented on our Amiga2001 show falling on April 1st. If you are not familiar, April 1st in the U.S. is called April Fools Day. A day when some pull pranks. To answer your concerns about the last day of the show being held on April 1st, all I can say is...

"The joke's on our competitors. They're going to feel like it's 1985 all over again!"

Anyone familiar with the original release of the Amiga should know how this statement applies.

See you in St. Louis in just over a week. Remember, the Banquet is going to be something special. We only have a few tickets left, so get your orders in now.
