Event: LAN party Hamburg started
Thorsten Mampel wrote: "The Hamburg LAN party is underway. There are still enough places but a fast arriving assures the best places.

For Pegasos users we offer some help with a Suse Linux installation. And we help updating Ambient and MUI. An A600 with many retro games is available, too.

Cloanto: Amiga Forever 2006 Released and Shipping
Cloanto released Amiga Forever 2006, the latest version of the award-winning Amiga preservation, emulation and support suite for Windows and other platforms. The product is in stock at all reseller partners.

Compared to the previous release, Amiga Forever 2006 includes 200 MB of new Amiga games and demoscene productions (CD version) and hundreds of enhancements. Some titles, such as Eric Chahi's Another World, have been re-released as a special build for this version. Amiga Forever 2006 features enhanced compatibility with popular Amiga add-ons such as AmiKit, AmigaSYS and AROS for Amiga (AFA), while introducing third-party ROMs, such as Logica's Dialoga diagnostic system.

"These recent developments are only a small sign of the work we are doing to make Amiga Forever more open and appealing to a diverse audience", said Cloanto's Michael C. Battilana, who was recently uncovered as "The man with green hair" next to Jay Miner on the Amiga Forever back cover.

Like the previous version, Amiga Forever 2006 is available in an Online Edition (compact download for Windows), a Plus Edition (downloadable cross-platform CD ISO image) and a Premium Edition (CD plus two video DVDs - photo). All versions of Amiga Forever make it possible to run Amiga software on non-Amiga computers, giving access to thousands of Amiga games and demoscene productions which are available for free download from software publishers and Amiga history sites alike. The Plus Edition and Premium Edition include more preinstalled games and demos, additional items of historical interest and several hours of videos.

Presented by the people who made it all possible, the videos on the two Premium Edition DVDs provides a unique insight into the history of computers and multimedia, exposing the relationship between Commodore, the Amiga, an increasingly mature PC market, and the ups and downs of the video games industry.

"This DVD set has some incredible footage from the early Amiga days. I really enjoyed watching the launch of the Amiga and interviews with the creator of the Amiga, Jay Miner," said Brian Bagnall, author of On the Edge: the Spectacular Rise and Fall of Commodore. "If you want to know more about what was going on behind the scenes, this is for you."

The Amiga Forever team will meet to present Amiga Forever 2006 in person at Codex Alpe Adria, the yearly event organized by Cloanto the first week-end of July. Bernd Schmidt, the original author of the UAE Amiga emulation software that made the first version of Amiga Forever possible in 1997, will join the small crowd of Amiga and alternative computing developers, sceners and enthusiasts in two weeks.

The Amiga Forever team would again like to thank the Amiga Community for its support during these 20 years of Amiga and almost 10 years of Amiga Forever. (snx)

C/C++ Update for Cubic IDE
An update of the C/C++-paket has been published for Cubic-users. The current version of vbcc was integrated as well as all MorphOS SDK updates (gcc, binutils, libnix, libgcc). Furthermore the update of the syntax-highlightings and the update of the OS4-SDKs with the latest lua, abc-shell and make.

Installation hint for MorphOS-users:
  • gcc 2.95.4 has been deleted from the paket because version 2.95.3 is more up-to-date (sic)

Installation hint for OS4 developer:
  • You have to put the complete OS4 51.22 SDK [153 MB] to the contribution directory before starting installing. Otherwise the paket will be not installed (OS4) or without Cross-Compilation-possibility (other platforms).
  • This version of the C/C++-paket can not use an installed SDK: It has to be installed by Cubic. Thus you get a better and cleaner installation as before.

Attention: This is a beta version. The AmigaOS-3- and MorphOS-site were tested but the AmigaOS-4-site not.

Link to the C/C++-paket: Download (nba) (Translation: dr)

AROS: Snapshot of the PPC version ("Linux hosted")
The team AROS provides a precompiled snapshot of the PPC port. It is a "Linux hosted"-version, so Linux incl. X-Window-System and glibc-2.3.4. is required. Further requirements are available in the documentation.

The distribution must be extracted in any folder and can be started through the shell then. To do so you go to the subdirectory AROS and execute "./aros". (cg) (Translation: tz)
