Network from the socket
At this Cebit the company devolo from Aachen will introduce its new product "devolo MicroLink LAN" (title link) to the market. With this device it should be possible to realize a DSL network over the mains supply of the house - without boring holes or pulling cables. "Simply put it in the socket and connect it with an Ethernet card on the PC."

According to the documentation a bit rate of up to 14Mbit in a circuit of 200 m is possible. The data transfer is described as safe. The electric meter is supposed to work as a firewall and a DES encoding with a 56 bit key will be used.

The device has a driver. All operating systems like Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and all TCP/IP operating systems will work with it. Maybe the Amiga, too...? (ps) (Translation: dr)

IOSPIRIT: fxPAINT 2.0 demo version completed
We are pleased to present you today a demo version of fxPAINT 2.0 - immediately available through our download section.

Limitations/specialities of the demo version:
  • saving is disabled
  • DEMO-text on every image
  • the demo version is noticably slower than the full version
  • a small refresh bug due to the DEMO-text-effect when zooming is lower than 100 percent. This bug ONLY exists in the demo version
  • some features of the full version are missing completly or are disabled
The demo version comes with all native modules for 68K, PPC (WarpUP, PowerUP, MorphOS) and x86 (Amithlon) and gives you - except for the limitations of the demo - an impression and some insight of fxPAINT 2.0. (ps)

New Screenshots from Robin Hood : Defender of the Crown
A few days ago, some new screenshots appeared of Robin Hood: Defender of the Crown. This game is a 3-D remake of Defender of the Crown, which will appear in PC and PS2 versions. In contrast to the recently released remake for PC, few aspects of gameplay have been altered here. (ps) (Translation: dm)

C-One Report in Computer Bild Spiele
In the current issue of Computer Bild Spiele 2/2003, a two page article may be found about Jeri Elsworth and her C-One. This report goes a bit into Jeri's history and the development of the C-One. So there is some information about the C-One and the original C64. Two pictures of C-64 classics and two funny pictures of a Lara Croft-style Jeri complete the report. (ps) (Translation: dm)

Abyss: Extralife Demo from 1998 released as Mpeg!
The classic demo Extralife, by the mostly German group Abyss, has now been released as an mpeg for all interested fans who don't have an Amiga.

On the homepage of the group many other different demos can be accessed, as can a multitude of graphics such as Cyclone, Acryl, Jcs, etc. Abyss played a decisive role in the international demoscene a few years ago, with their fresh designs and good ideas. Nowadays a few of them are developing for Gameboy Advanced and Gameboy Color.

TV-Card Software: AmithlonTV Beta 245
Guido Mersmann has released beta-version 245 of the TV-Card driver software AmithlonTV.

New in this version:
    Due the latest changes I cleared the libs/tvcard_carddata/ drawer. If you perform a fresh installation just drag and drop the required tv card file(s) from the storage_carddata into the tvcard_carddata drawer. This change was required, because several cards are using the same hardware ids, but they also need a different setup.

    Added the missing global setup which is required for non card specific drivers like audio mixers.

    Optional Volume_AmiMixer.lib allows to modify the volume within applications (requires amimixer.library).

    TVFakeInterrupt() wasn't working correct in special cases.

    The missing "Notify" interrupt feature implemented. "Volume_AmiMixer.lib" enhanced to support this feature.

    Removed the ghost card which appeared with the bt8x8 audio section and the Philips enhancement. Currently the section will be suppressed by the library. Later this will be handled by the configuration, but currently this is the best solution.

Emulator: WinUAE V0.8.22 release 5 (update)
On January the 26th 2003 the feature list for version 0.8.22 release 5 of the Amiga emulator 'WinUAE' for Windows has been released. The emulator itself will be published in February 2003. Compared to the last version the following has been changed:

Bugs fixed:
  • CD32-mode media change detection
  • SlowRAM detection fixes (commando and more)
  • more compatible CIA keyboard emulation (Back to the Future 2 and more)
  • another bsdsocket.library emulation update
  • another state restore fix
  • fixed mouse problems in Space Crusade, Billy the Kid etc.
  • writing to custom floppy images was unstable
  • primary sound buffer-checkbox removed and disabled. It is useless and usually only caused huge slowdown problems. NOTE: Users of R3 or R4: Make sure primary sound buffer-checkbox is disabled.

New features:
  • configurable boot priority and device name for regular (non-RDB) hardfiles and virtual directory filesystems
  • FPU state file support
  • more compatible Action Replay 1 support
  • "Middle-Mouse-Button -> ALT-TAB" works now in fullscreen mode
  • configurable keyboard LEDs (DF0, DF1, DF2, DF3, POWER, HD, CD)

We were told within the comments that "WIP" doesn't mean it would be published already but still a work in progress. Because of that the news item has been modified accordingliy. (ps) (Translation: ub)

IOSPIRIT: IBrowse 2.3 released
We are pleased to unveil that a distribution agreement with Stefan Burström and the IBrowse Team has been signed and we are now the worldwide distributor for IBrowse (support for IBrowse is still done by the IBrowse development team, though).

Furthermore, we are pleased to announce the immediate release of the eagerly awaited update to IBrowse 2.2.

IBrowse 2.3 brings web browsing on AmigaOS to a new level - below is a brief summary of the changes since version 2.2:

  • Heavily enhanced JavaScript support, based on JavaScript 1.5 and revision 3 of the ECMAScript specification, allowing access to sites which was not possible before
  • Secure connection support is now available via AmiSSL v2, which can be configured extensively in the IBrowse preferences. Importing and exporting of certificates is now also supported.
  • Greatly improved general stability and memory leaks plugged
  • Improved GUI, including enhanced browser tab functionality (such as drag'n'drop, keyboard support)
  • Issues with the ARexx interface have been fixed and new commands added
  • Hundreds of other minor and major bug fixes + improvements, and more workarounds added to improve compatibility with broken sites
All these improvements greatly improve the browsing experience, and allow IBrowse to offer compatibility with many more websites than before.

For further information, news and product support, please visit and our IBrowse-subpages. (ps)
