SN-FindColour V1.1 published
SN-FindColour is Freeware and meant to find certain colours. Red-, green- and blue-figures can be set with the help of a scroller and thus the colour will be calculated. Besides this it is also possible to enter and calculate HTML colour codes. There is a standard and a MorphOS version (problems with entering fields).

You can find SN-FindColour under "Weitere SN-Archive" on my homepage (title link). (ps) (Translation: dr)

Two changes occurred this month in's editorial team: Alfred Sturm left; he had tended the Amiga Link Directory from June 2000 until December 2004 by adding and deleting websites and putting up a screenshot of each. His responsibilities there have been taken over by Christoph Gutjahr. Don't forget to announce your new Amiga websites in the Amiga Link Directory.

AROS: Latest state of the TCP/IP stack development
By the title link there is a forum thread at AROS-Exec, which contains information about the current state of the TCP/IP stack development for AROS and a screenshot. The latter shows the browser Mosaic and a simple webserver, Cheetah. An e-mail client is in development.

According to that thread there are two stacks under development now. One developer goes for the TCP/IP bounty and develops a SANA2 compatible driver. That stack might, like Roadshow, become an AmiTCP heir and accordingly build on the bsdsocket.library.

The second version is a port of LwIP by those both developers who contributed the screenshot. Currently only loopback is working, but a tap/tun driver for the Linux hosted version of AROS is close. Here, the bsdsocket.library is a regular, disk based library. The first call of that library leads to the start of the stack task and programs may access by the bsdsocket.library the network. But the driver will be a different one. (snx) (Translation: ub)

Coyote Flux: PPC680x0 released as freeware
After lots of bugfixes and updates, PPC680x0 has become freeware and can be downloaded from this site. Both the docs and the program have been updated.

Since PPC680x0 V2.0 is in beta state, please let us know if the program contains any bugs. PPC680x0 has not been tested on machines without custom chips, so we cannot guarantee that it will work on such systems. It should work under UAE. Have fun!

Coyote Flux wishes everyone a happy and excellent 2005! (snx)
