Update 03. December 2001:
Dear customers, since the draw we have been planning on occasion of our KDH Advent calendar possibly would violate the rules of the competition rights, as it already was pointed out to us, we decided to stop this draw in the interest of a fair and justly unobjectionable competition. Currently it is being investigated to find a legal form to continue the draw.

bruZard's blitzbasic[3D][bbb3D] (ANF)

BlitzBasic PC & BlitzBasic AMIGA
For some weeks the site (title link) is now online. It deals with the topic BlitzBasic on the PC. Since I come from the Amiga BlitzBasic I would like to create a section on this topic as well. Especially now that the development of BlitzBasic for the Amiga continues. It only justifies the efforts though if there are interested people who would appreciate that. So: who has interest in a BlitzBasic AMIGA site should show it by leaving a comment.

There already exists a bulletin board on the site which would also be extended by an Amiga section. I'd like to thank you already for your interest.

Emulator: SDL extension for UAE
On Bernd Lachner's homepage at the "Amiga Software / UAE - SDL" section you can find the UAE SDL being an extension of the Amiga emulator UAE to let it use the SDL library (Simple DirectMedia Layer) for graphics output and keyboard and mouse input.

Advantages of the SDL version:
  • Display of the UAE Amiga screen in fullscreen mode possible trouble-free for ordinary users, too.
  • Display of the UAE Amiga screen even possible on the frame-buffer console of Linux, that means without X-Windos.
Detailed information (German) and download links are to find under the title link. (ps) (Translation: mj)

Hyperion: Freespace Demo - Update 3 available
Today, the third update of the FreeSpace demo version was released on our WWW-site, which now fixes the "freeze bug", at last. So there is nothing left to prevent the full version from being released, soon.

We are still busy to fix some little things (also in reply to feedback for the demo version), but this should be finished, soon.

Additionally I will upload the demo version including all bugfixes to Aminet within the next days.

Amiga University site updates
We have added more than 150 new links, link-checked the entire site, as well as added new pages on Amithlon/AmigaOSXL and Amiga DiskMags (online archives of The Crypt as well as Amiga Information Online).

We have also added a major new site mirror, that of Gareth Knight's Amiga Interactive Guide, as well as the newly replaced mirror of the Blitz Basic 2000 site (David McMinn just redid their entire site, as he announced about 1.5 weeks ago here on ANN). In short, a lot of 'new' and plenty of 'old' for your use and enjoyment.

Individual Computers: New xsurfadsl.device with appp update
A new version of the xsurfadsl.device, the PPPoE driver for our networking card X-Surf, can be found in the support-area of our website. For the first time, the archive also contains an updated version of the appp.device that has been licensed from Haage & Partner (see article from November, 12th).

The source code of version 2.7 that we got from Haage & Partner was different from the binary that is being sold with the Genesis package in OS3.9 (V2.3). Questions about the changes between the two versions could not be answered until now. The new version provided by us (V3.1) has been updated mainly on internal structures: The device-base code (the interface to the OS) is completely re-written, so opening up to eight units, and freeing all resources after closing them (especially memory) is ensured. Therefore, we also recommend installing the new appp.device, even if you do not own an X-Surf Ethernet card.

At this point, we want to draw your attention to the ISAcatweasel.device, which allows using the PC-Catweasel under Amithlon. Since we have not been able to run Amithlon on any of our computers, we depend you your help in testing. The new archive is now packed with LHA, so difficulties with unpacking the ARJ archive are eliminated. Adapted Catweasel mountlists should make the installation a lot easier. (ps)

Cloanto (ANF)

Cloanto Releases Amiga Forever 5.0
Cloanto released today version 5.0 of Amiga Forever, the official Amiga emulation and connectivity package for PCs. New features include just-in-time (JIT) compiler technology to dramatically increase execution speed, new ROM and operating system files to emulate not only the Amiga computers but also Commodore's CDTV and CD³² game consoles, and Software Manager, a content delivery and management system for one-click news, updates and downloads.

An experimental version of the revolutionary Disk2FDI software, which makes it possible to read Amiga floppy disks on the PC, is provided for the technically inclined. Other improvements include support for new Windows XP and DirectX features and new Picasso96 technology to better map Amiga graphics calls to low-level DirectX functionality and native x86 code, in order to achieve maximum performance without sacrificing compatibility. Cloanto publicly benchmarked the new version of the emulation software to be 30 times faster than the previous version (which already matched the CPU performance of the fastest Amiga 68060 silicon).

Amiga Forever can be installed or run from CD-ROM (no installation or reboot required), and is also available in a downloadable Online Edition. In either case, Amiga application can run side by side with the host operating system and its applications, while taking advantage of features such as virtual memory, advanced power management, digital rights management, NTFS filing system, wireless networking, and thousands of past, present and future drivers for peripherals, specifications and gadgets which the Amiga would otherwise not be able to support. For additional information please refer to the Amiga Forever home page at (ps)
