USB-Stack: ANAIIS 0.92
ANAIIS ("Another Native Amiga IO Interface Stack") from Gilles Pelletier is a USB-Stack, which works on systems with a 68000-CPU. The Stack requieres minimal a AmigaOS 1.3 and is design for Zorro 2-Systemes without Accelerator card only.

Changes in Version 0.92:
  • Most hub will work now. I have implemented 2.0 mode, but old 1.1 style doesn't work. Now it's fixed.
  • Additional code to simply manage mousewheel. ANAIIS will send 0x7a for up, 0x7b for down, 0x7c for left and 0x7d for right, as keyboard events. Strange for a mouse!
  • ctrl + window key + app menu key = Reset !
  • Strange multiselection: Qualifiers key was wrong on repeat state, but good on key up and key down. Now you can move cursor with keyboard keys.

AROS: Status-Update November 2007
The AROS-Team shows on his Webpage a overview about the changes of the opensource AmigaOS-clon "AROS Research Operating System" (AROS):

AROS has gained lots of bugfixes and improvements in the lastest weeks. For istance, Neil Cafferkey has corrected some important bugs is his beloved AROS Installer; Nic Andrews has worked on his RTL8139 network driver; and Robert Norris has fixed file notifications, which previously broke preferences, just to name three. Robert Norris has added a SDL driver for linux hosted AROS. This lets you build a hosted AROS that doesn't require X (you don't even need it installed to build anymore). In theory this could help with getting hosted running on other platforms (anywhere SDL exists), however it's a little slower than the X driver. Matthias Rustler has ported ptplay.library to AROS. It renders Protracker modules into sound samples. Additionally he also ported ShellPlayer, a simple example player. They will be in nightly builds, in Extras/MultiMedia/Audio drawer. Matthias Rustler also made an initial port of Alain Thellier's Wazp3D to AROS. Wazp3D is a library intended to be compatible with the famous Warp3D.library for AmigaOS 68040, and it makes easier to port some 3D Amiga games to AROS. Wazp3D can also work as a software renderer, fooling applications looking for a 3D hardware driver. Michal Schulz has made some big steps further with his x86-64 port of AROS. The day of 64 bit AROS computing is getting near. In the meanwhile, Michal added also SSE instructions support to AROS. (cg) (Translation: (aj)

AROS for AmigaOS: AfA 4.00 Final Beta1
Bernd Rösch is making available a final beta version of AROS for AmigaOS (AfA), a port of individual AROS components to AmigaOS 3.9. The author asks for feedback in case certain applications do not get along with the thicker window borders, then, in the final version, these programs will already be entered in a blacklist and will therefore continue to be provided with the old, thinner window borders.

Features of AfA 4.00 Final beta 1:
  • Visualprefs and Birdie or AFA-skin can be selected via AFA_Prefs and adapted Startup-Sequence. For this, refer to the Readme at all costs for how you must change the startup-sequence (In Amikit 1.4, this is already done)
  • OS4/PNG icons can be scaled in real time, thanks to high-grade scale code by Thilo Köhler. On a classic (060), OS4 Mason icons with a size of 30 pixels can be displayed faster than in original size.
  • In getdiskobject and dupdiskopbject, added tags IA_Width, IA_Height for scaling
  • Realtime skin system, which can switch skins without closing and opening screen, arbitrary border sizes also possible at the same time (screenshot)
  • A blacklist in which you can enter names of programs which do not get along with larger window borders, then, the standard border size of AmigaOS is assigned to these
  • Many configurable realtime parameters, like 3 different window border lines, window title size, size gadget size
  • The user can change the settings preset by the skin designer via GUI
  • Window title font selectable independent of the window font configured in AmigaOS
  • Position of the text in the window title and shadows with configurable depth selectable
  • The skins consist of multiple pictures for the screen title and all parts of the window title like top, left, bottom and right border and for the foreground and background for the vertical and horizontal scroll bar
  • 7 skins by Ken Lester now usable (screenshot)

Back to the Roots V2.41 - Patch Level 2
Below, Ralf Steines summarizes the recent developments at Back to the Roots:

Fred Fish Memorial Archive:

Now two weeks have passed since we opened our tribute page to Fred Fish, which went a successfull burn-in-test for our new server: During the last 2 weeks our main server delivered 25.000 CD images, most of them Fred Fish CDs!

The memorial archive grew to 3 times its initial size, thanks to the numerous people who contributed missing material! There's still quite some stuff missing, so please check your collections and consider contributing, especially the Frozen Fish and the Geek Gadget Snapshot CDs. Thanks!

Geek Gadgets FTP Mirror:

Since we mirrored daily, to 26.Aug.2004 when it went down we have the latest copy of it online, which we consider the master site from now on.

We will exctend it with any snapshots and improved versions we could get hold of to at least provide an up to date archive of this (currently?) sleeping project. We will happily give anyone interested to continue and maintain it full control over it.

Geek Gadgets Reloaded:

Since the FTP is only a part of the project we digged out a copy of the Geek Gadgets master site, originally hosted at

We started reconstructing and updating the master site of it. The site got a handy subdomain and all missing package documents will be added with time. We call this preservation side project Geek Gadgets Reloaded and will happily handle control over to a new maintainer. full mirror:

We finally finished a years old plan to have a fullmirror of the huge archive online on our FTP. Due to storage space limits we only had a partial mirror, which we fixed now, so we now have an official full mirror. Big thanks go to Cygnus^Amigascne for being such an easy guy.

Enjoy the enormous collection of about 10GB of Amiga scene output. Even if you're used to browse huge archives you will surely get lost once you dive in there!

Faces of Mars Archive:

Another years old plan we already started long ago finally gets realised: An online version of the Faces of Mars disk series and FreeCDs offering all releases for download at no cost.

This project is still work in process, but since most FreeCDs are already online, we decided to release it, so you may all help filling the gaps. We still have no FOM disk above #336, so please check your PD CDs for FOM disks 337-500+ to finish the collection. Thanks.

Amidemos Master Site:

While we were updating our FTP we stumbled across the FTP mirror of robotriot's project, a collection of Amiga demos transcoded to DIVX / AVI video format.

We updated our mirror from the archive but noticed that quite some videos were missing. So we digged in backup copies until we recreated most of the collection, only Kah835gb by Madwizards and Raybong by Loveboat are missing. If you have any of these videos from amidemos collection then please upload it to our anon upload ftp so we can finish the new Amidemos Master Site. Thanks!

FlatDisk Modules FTP:

The Flatdisk Modules Archive (FDMA) by FlatRich of FlatDisk Softworks is a collection of over 5600 mods, collected in the years 1992-1999. We host this archive since a while, including per collection year ModRadio channels. We added it now to our FTP server too, offering you a convenient way for mass downloading it.

Please enjoy, yours BTTR team! (snx)
