Operating System: NetBSD 3.0 for Classic Amiga
Shortly before christmas version 3.0 of the operating system NetBSC has been released for the Classic Amiga. NetBSD is similar to Unix and is distributed under the open source licence making it easy to port it. 53 platforms are currently supported along with the Amiga/68k including the DraCo.

NetBSD needs a MMU as well as an 68020 CPU or higher and 8 MB FastRAM. A list of changes in version 3.0 can be read in the Changelog. (cg) (Translation: nba)

AmigaOS 4: Update of Frozen Bubble
Frozen Bubble (Screenshot) is a clone of the classic arcade game Puzzle Bobble. The update eliminates a few minor bugs which were reported by the users:
  • relink against older SDL, music and sound problems fixed
  • increased sound buffer size to 4096 as recomended by toaks
  • found a few more instances of $ENV{HOME} replaced them with /bubbles
  • added a timidity config to stop SDL from looking for it in /usr/local/lib. I suspect though that it's not actually used.

AROS: GTK-MUI wrapper included in the Nightly Builds
After all functions required by the Team AROS bounty #30 being implemented by Oliver 'o1i' Brunner into a GTK-MUI wrapper and the current version being judged by the developers to be stable enough that all GTK examples in the CVS do work, Jack Patton has imported a snapshot of the source code into the contrib-sources of AROS. Thus the GTK-MUI wrapper is included in the Nightly Builds of AROS from now on.

The further plans for the (near) future are the integration of as many GLib functions as possible and, as far as this can be achieved, the usage of the original header files. For MorphOS, Ilkka 'itix' Lehtoranta is also turning the wrapper into a dynamic library (gtkmuippc.library). (snx)

The end of VirusExecutor
Jan Erik Olausen has proclaimed the end of VirusExecutor, so there will be no more updates for the anti-virus-software released for Classic AmigaOS. This was announced by the Virus Help Team, which thanked the Dane for his commitment in the past years.

Olausen was among other things also jointly responsible for xvs.library. With the help of this library virus definitions can be edited in external software. This is why the VirusExecutor also will stay up to date and can be used in the future as well. Xvs.library will definitely not be affected by the stopping of VirusExecutor. (nba) (Translation: iw)

AmigaOS 4: Amiga Bourne Compatible Shell 0.0.37
abc-shell ("Amiga Bourne Compatible Shell") is a POSIX-/Bourne-compatible Shell which offers an environment similar to the one from Unix-/Linux-systems. abc-shell should ease the porting of Unix-software to the Amiga platform.

The newest version has been bugfixed and is now compatible to Configure-scripts which were created by newer versions of autoconf.
