"AmigaDevBox" to support developers with OS4 porting
The aim of the project "AmigaDevBox" is to support developers without PPC hardware to port their projects to AmigaOS 4.

To make this possible AmigaOne owners are asked to help those developers by giving them access to their AmigaOnes in one or another way (e.g. via the Internet) or to compile/test projects for the developer.

Interested users as well as developers looking for help may register themselves under the title link on a world map or get an overview over the already registered persons. (cg) (Translation: wk)

AmiStart: module update
Because of a startup problem in the library installation crashed AmiStart under AmigaOS4. With the new modules should this be solved. It is recommended to use these modules on other systems, too.

Many thanks to Stephan Rupprecht as with his help the bug could be found. As the modules were realized through libraries it is important to restart the computer after copying the updated files or to do an 'avail flush'. (snx) (Translation: wk)

Audio Evolution 4 released
We are proud to announce that today, our audio harddisk recording and editing software Audio Evolution 4.0 has been released. Since the last update about 3 years ago, Audio Evolution has undergone a significant amount of enhancements, besides the port to AmigaOS4 native.

The most prominent improvements are non-linear non-destructive editing, effect automation, automation recording, unlimited undo, MIDI remote control and updates to the GUI. Also smaller enhancements like a metronome, many grid options, track height adjustment, improved automation editing on the timeline and new effect plug-ins etc. are included.

Audio Evolution 4.0 now also comes with a brand new manual in PDF format which is also used as online help.

For people who haven't seen Audio Evolution 4 yet, there is a demo on the OS4 pre-CD, an updated demo (with bugfixes) and screenshots are available on our website.

You can order directly from the distributor Computer City or ask your local dealer. Registered users of Audio Evolution 3 will get a discount.

Prices are 149 euro for new users and 70 euro for upgrades. A printed manual can be purchased separately for a small additional cost. Please ask your dealer for more information.

For more information please visit http://www.audio-evolution.com or contact us at info@audio-evolution.com. (cg) (Translation: cg)

IOSPIRIT: Onlineshop only available until 24th November 2004
Major internal reorganization efforts will make it necessary to deactivate the order function of the online shop on the 24th of November 2004. The time needed for these efforts is estimated with two weeks, but can be longer due to dependencies on external factors. The deactivation of the onlineshop thus happens for indefinite time. Customers who want to order software still this year thus should make their orders until the 24th of November 2004. In this context we also want to remind our customers of the still running fall promotion with price reductions of up to 75 %.

Apart from the ability to place new orders, all functions of the website will stay available as usual. (cg) (Translation: cg)

AmithlonUpdate project cancelled
Guido Mersmann told us that AmithlonUpdate which is available in Aminet will be not further developed but deleted from it. He further wrote:

"Because Bernd Meyer just has told me in the public Yahoo mailing list AmithlonOpen that I am not allowed to use the archives which he made available I cannot continue developing it. Unfortunately the users will lose a project because of a personal conflict of two people.

The still existing archives will be deleted from Aminet as soon as possible. Because as I know the Aminet is still offline the AmithlonUpdate V1.30 and the corresponding source code archive which were going to be uploaded will be deleted, too." (snx) (Translation: dr)

Test: Compatibility of a Pocket Video-Recorder with MorphOS
After Carsten Siegner acquired a pocket video-recorder, he tackled the question of whether the particular model, an Archos AV400, could be utilized without problems on MorphOS, given its use of a USB connection. He writes:

"Everyone who would like to have a real hardware encoder for the Pegasos should have a look at the AV400 from Archos. This is a pocket video-recorder that encodes and decodes videos in MPEG4-SP format in realtime. Outside of that it outputs the sound formats of MP3, WMA and WAV, and captures WAV clips.

Because it makes use of a USB port, I can copy a clip of video over to my Pegasos hard-drive, or even view it with MorphOS MPlayer directly off the camera's internal 20 meg hard-drive.

A DVD image in DIVX-4 format may be generated with an appropriate editing program direct on the camera's hard-drive, so that I may then view this video data by making use of the video connections on any standard TV. Doing it this way maintains the output quality at the level of a DVD. By contrast, if I make the video with the device itself, the quality is only about SVCD level." (snx) (Translation: dm)
