AmigaDE: VP Starter code
On 14 December, 2001 John Harris released the current version of his VP-Starter-Codes for AmigaDE. This update contains bug fixes and improvements.

The archive contains examples and helpful routines in VP. They are supposed to help you get started with the VP applications or they might provide further support for those of you who are already experienced.

Apart from the examples it contains routines to set up the AVE and application window, manage events and cycling processes, embed 16-bit compressed graphics, and draw graphics and text on screen.

Aminet: New Interface
There is a new WWW-Interface available on the Aminet site US-Site.

The Interface has a white background. On the left-hand side there's a narrow blue command panel and on the right-hand side the chosen information is presented. On the homepage these are the uploads of the last seven days.

In the command panel you'll find the search option, links to information about Aminet as well as links to each single category. After having clicked on a particular category, its content will be shown on the righ-hand side and at the top the subcategories will appear, by which means a quick search is possible.

MP3: mp3Play V2.01
On 15 December 2001 Carl Svensson published version 2.01 of his minimalistic GUI "mp3Play" for the MP3-Player "MPEGA".

The GUI has been made with ARexx and the rexxreqtools.library. It calls up "MPEGA" in such a way that the player needs only 25 per cent of the CPU time on a 50 Mhz 68060 CPU, according to DashBoard.

Compared to version 2.0 a standard C= installer script and the ID3 tag viewer has been added.

CDTV: "C= CDTV Information Center" 1 year old
On 15 December 2000, exactly a year ago, the website "The Commodore CDTV Information Center" went online. This site gives detailed information about the history, the possiblities, new developments and the software of the CDTV.

Just in time for its anniversary, the site has been redesigned, 90 per cent of which has been finished. The new site "Using a CDTV" can't be uploaded yet, as there're still some things missing. 15 per cent of the CDTV-User-Clubs site, which is also new, has been finished (Icons, background) and 50 per cent of the upgrades section has been completed. Therefore you can still find the previous sites in some places.

The CDTV-User-Clubs site contains CDXL files, installation guides, trouble fixes and a monthly electronic magazine. (sd) (Translation: sr)

While searching through the Mozilla site I came across two interesting pages. The first one can be reached via the title link and is the page of the AmigaDE port of Mozilla that is developed by James Russell. The project is in a very early state and he is still looking for strong support.

The other one's here, the site about the new "revolutionary" browser engine of Netscape that is said to have a platform independant architecture and is the main part of Netscape 6.1. As possible platform for a port they mention, next to several Unix systems, BeOS and OS2/Warp, the Amiga. (ps) (Translation: wk)
