Sven Scheele (ANF)

ACSH hardware meeting the oncoming Saturday
Sven Scheele from the AmigaClub Schleswig-Holstein wrotes:

"Due to the many unexpected registrations (approximately 15) of users who want to bring along their own computers to the meeting in Kiel on Saturday, all seats are taken in the meantime. We are not able to accept further registrations, since our event rooms are quite small this time.

We will try to get bigger rooms for the next meeting in the second quarter of 2006 and hope for a similarly positive response. (cg) (Translation: iw)

AROS: Status update January 2006
In his latest status update, Paolo Besser gives a summary of the recent developments around the open-source AmigaOS reimplementation AROS. He writes:

This is the first status update of 2006, and we wish to thank all AROS users, sponsors and enthusiasts for their support: at the beginning of 2005 AROS-Exec had about 250 members, now this number has doubled with more than 500 (and growing). During these months AROS has achieved some key goals such as network support, CVS to Subversion migration and PPC porting. More and more applications had been ported or added, lots of bug had been fixed, and there's also a flavour of AROS running on top of classic AmigaOS, in order to modernize it. We're all sure that 2006 will be a very interesting year for AROS. And now, let's go with our fresh news...

Georg Steger has fixed input preferences for mouse, in order to improve mice tracking and pointer precision on the screen.

Mathias Rustler has updated documentation for users and developers, adding some nice hints and removing obsolete informations. You'll find signs of his work through this site. Mathias has also commited ExecuteStartup, a little tool that executes whatever application you'll copy in the SYS:WBstartup drawer. (snx)

AfA: AROS for AmigaOS 3.92
AROS for AmigaOS (AfA), a Project to enhance the AmigaOS 3.x with a reimporting of newer AROS-Functionen, is Update to Version 3.92.

The newer version provided a faster drawing of icons in high color. But in the default config is the FastIcon-option off. To activate this AfA-config is a system restart required. At this moment this option is only with AGA and Picasso96 tested - a feedback of the usability with CyberGraphX is requested.

As second change was a SaferSystem-option added to the AfA-config, which make it possible to switch the Exec-Guardfunction on and off (during operation) to protect the system agains a crash or makes it compatible. In default is this option deaktivated. (snx) (Translation: aj)
