Journal File System "JFS" von IBM für Linux-APUS (PPC)
As already announced in the forum some time ago, the Journal File System by IBM is now available for Linux-APUS from my homepage. Among other things the download contains a precompiled kernel (2.4.8) and a kernel-patch that can be used with version 2.4.xx of the APUS-kernel-sources.

There is still some work to do for porting ReiserFS and Ext3. The release will be announced too. Futhermore there are some important information about the new Bootstrap (23.06.2001), by the APUS-development-team, available. (ps) (Translation: sk)

Invoicing: MT-Rechnung III Version 1.11
There was an update released for MT-Rechnung III version 1.11. This program is freeware under GPL. MT-Rechnung is being an invoice processing program by Manfred Tremmel managing addresses (offices, employees, customers, and suppliers), goods, different kinds of delivery, goods receipt and issue records.

Automatic stock recording is impelemented (from v1.04 including inventory) as well as an automatic price accounting. Prices can be scaled regarding number of units, shipping and handling regarding wheight. An accounting function is being worked on, accounts and account groups can already be created from v1.04.

MT-Rechnung III builds on a database especially developed for this, crashes don't cause any loss of data anymore, several users can use the same dataset simultanously via network.

Printing forms are not integrated in the program, but are external PostScript fiels, so it is no problem to add new or adjust existing forms. If no PostScript capable printer is available a PostScript interpreter like HWPost or GhostScript can be used for printing.

Becaus of the acute lack of time the programmer Manfred Tremmel can only work very few on MT-Rechnung III, thus he is hoping for active cooperation to not let the project drop off completely. The source code is available for donwload.

Amiga Arena: Interview with Sascha Brandt ("The last Seal")
Olaf Köbnik writes:
Amiga Arena - Interview Action
1999 a demo version of the adventures "The last Seal" was published, developed by the Swiss team "Ancor".

Since a lot of things were announced, yet never realized we're now even more pleased to hear that "The last Seal" has been further developed throughout 2001.

Half of the game has supposedly been rewritten in "C" and "The last Seal" seems to promise a downright crazy adventure. (Let's hope that it will be finished).

The Amiga Arena held a short interview with the developer Sascha Brandt.

Further information is available under Ancor. (sd) (Translation: sr)

Virus Help Denmark: xvs.library V33.37
On 9. December 2001 Georg Hoermann and Jan Erik Olausen published the version 33.37 of the virus scanner library "xvs".

Compared to the previous version the following changes have been made:
  • Once more added some new security features to the library. It will now try to self-defend after alien attacks, only if these efforts fail, the library gets disabled.
  • Added recognition for 2 demo files that I call 'Anti-UAE Trojan'. Their code checks for UAE systems and in case it finds one will delete important files. Thanks to Jan Andersen for sending the demos to me.
  • Added recognition for a MS-DOS strain of 'Bastard Installer'. Thanks to Jan Andersen for the file.
  • Added recognition and repair code for 'Bobek 3' linkvirus. Thanks to Zeeball for sending me an infected file, even though it was accidentally :-)
This virus scanner library can be used together with VirusExecutor, VirusChecker II or VirusZ.

Games: x-cellence redesigned, Amiga-Team sought for
Jens [bruZard] Henschel writes:
The web page of the game development team "x-cellence" has been completely redesigned. Our latest project, the RPG "God's Light", has made this necessary.

Unfortunately, we can only work on PC-titles at the moment. For this reason we're still (and have been for a year now) looking for a qualified Amiga-Team which will work together with us on the implementation of our titles for Amiga.

This mainly means the implementation of the X-Fire-Engine in Warp3D or OpenGL. On this basis, it would be relatively easy to develop our titles for Amiga and at the same time support this fantastic platform. (sd) (Translation: sr)

Virus Help Denmark: two new viruses discovered
Two archives found on Aminet contain a new trojan. They are said to be AGA demos but if you run these demos on a PC using 'WinUAE' your system will be deleted. These demos come from a Polish demo group. Why they would program something like this, I don't know.

This is some info about the two archives:

Trojan name... : AME-DSD Trojan (name might be changed later)
Trojan file... : dsd-main
Trojan size... : 93.924 bytes
Trojan archive : AME-DSD.lha
Archive size.. : 6.927.166 bytes
Archive info.. : Dog Star Descends by Amnesty (CGX&AHI compatible)

Trojan name... : PSL-KMJ Trojan (name might be changed later)
Trojan file... : main
Trojan size... : 49.308 bytes
Trojan archive : PSL-KMJ.lha
Archive size.. : 5.530.365 bytes
Archive info.. : Kiss My Jazz by Pic Saint Loup (AGA/CGX)

In the code for these archives you can read:

------------ Code start -----------------------

Warning!!! UAE System for lamers detected!!! - System will reboot after mouse button... run c:delete s:startup-sequence force quiet >NIL:

------------ Code end -------------------------

It is not legal to release destructive programs to the public, and we will see what we can do with this. In almost every country the programmer of such destructive programs can go to jail for this kind of programming.

The xvs.library package will be released very soon.....

Thanks to 'Urban' for the info about the archive.

A new linkvirus has been found a few days ago, we are not sure if this virus is in the wild. It was send directly to Zbigniew Trzcionkowski (the programmer of Safe). Zbigniew received one infected file. This new virus is a clone of the "Bobek-2" linkvirus and is named "Bobek-3". This is able to disable the antivirus programs.

We do not know if this virus was released in any way, so if you get a requester popping up, telling you that something is trying to disable the xvs.library, please let us know.

This is what we know of the virus:

Virus name: Bobek-3
Virus Type: Linkvirus
Virus size: about 2.000 bytes (uses polmorphic engine)

Well, it looks like the Polish virus group is back in action. But maybe not for long. Things will happen very soon.

Thanks to 'Zbigniew' for sending the archive. (ps)

  • Folders holding unread mails are hilighted now.

Please note: if you downloaded your archive before 2001/12/08, 0:30 am, there were informations about the taglines missing in the guide so the guide has been replaced just now. If you don't want to download the whole archive again, here is the changeg paragraph:

Tick this box if you want SimpleMail to automatically add a random tagline to every email you write. Simply insert a %t in the signature and it will be replaced by a random tagline found in .taglines when composing a mail.

Sorry for the inconvience.
