Harman buys QNX
The Hifi specialist Harman has bought the software developer QNX which is specialised in creating realtime operating systems. Some time ago QNX was taken into consideration of being the successor of AmigaOS and was also distributed with the AmigaOSXL packet from Haage&Partner.

Harman espeacially is interested in the realtime operating system QNX Neutrino. This should become the de-facto-standard in the car industry.

The price for it is to be 138 million US-Dollar. (nba) (Translation: dr)

The first one touches the bug when downloading from the OpenFT network and secondly Amigift will not freeze any longer if the source list of the downloads is too big. Additionally the NList parser was optmized and runs now something faster.

Spreadsheet: ignition
'ignition' is a spreadsheet featuring an integrated relational database. It is currently developed under AmigaOS 3 and will be distributed by IOSPIRIT. Ports for AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS are planned as well.

Approached by, author Axel Dörfler explains that the program has reached a pretty advanced state - though import and export functions for Excel and Turbocalc spreadsheets are not implemented yet and the documentation still needs a lot of work. Dörfler is unable to announce a release date as he has a lot of job-related projects going on right now.

The current version of ignition will be demonstrated at the Amiga meeting in Bad Bramstedt (Germany) this weekend. Screenshots and further information are available under the title link. (cg) (Translation: cg)

AmigaOS4: Support for Anti Grain Geometry
As it is to read at the AGG website the Anti Grain Geometry may, thanks to Steven Solie, be used with AmigaOS4 now. The demos are expanded with OS4 versions.

Anti Grain Geometry (AGG) is a C++ based open source graphic libraray. AGG is not depending on a special graphic API nor on other technologies. Principally it is a kind of rendering engine which generates pixel data based on vectors. A detailed description is available at the project site.

Handling with AmigaOS4: For information about available targets type make -f Makefile.AmigaOS. To install AGG to the AmigaOS4-SDK call the following: make -f Makefile.AmigaOS install. To just make one of the demos (e.g. 'lion') type: make -f Makefile.AmigaOS bin/lion.
