Disc-Magazine: Toga
Mazze43 wrote: "Hello Amiga fellows! Recently I was looking for disc magazines to complete my collection. Under the title link I have found a site which publishes five discs each month. It is called Toga. Some of you should know this name.

Issues from before 2007 are available on the server of Back to the Roots. I do not have an idea if the magazine is well-known." (snx) (Translation: dr)

AmigaOS 4: RPG-Remake Lord of the Rings
Lord of the Rings ("LotR") is a roleplay developed by Interplay which was published in 1991 for Amiga and MS-DOS. Johan "Spot" Samuelsson now has ported the Open Source reimplementation of the LotR-Engine to AmigaOS 4 (screenshots: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Additionally to the engine the data of the commercial original are required. The MIDI-soundtrack still does not work under AmigaOS 4 but beside LotR can be fully played. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Instant Messenger: Jabberwocky 1.8b7 (Beta)
Jabberwocky is a MUI-based Instant-Messaging-Client which can access different Messenging-Networks (e.g. AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo) with so called server moduls. Jabberwocky is available for AmigaOS 3 and 4 and the MorphOS-version will follow soon.

Changes since the last beta version:
  • Added NFloattext.mcc to the reuirements listed in the Jabberwocky guide.
  • Added alternative check for TextInput.mcc if vapor_toolkit.library is missing. Textinput.mcc crashes if checked by MUI without the vapor_toolkit.library installed and available.
  • Added a check for the presence of NFloattext.mcc so Jabberwocky won't crash if it's missing.
  • Updated OS4 makefiles and Jabberwocky include files to compile with new OS4 SDK (Now defaults to linking with newlib.library instead of clib2).
  • Corrected the asynchronous command execution for OS4 to prevent unwanted closing of error output filehandle. (Doesn't apply to OS3 or MOS)
  • Improved sourcecode by eliminating some unused variables, adding function prototypes, correcting some character declarations, making type casting corrections & added some missing default function return values.

Amiga Future: Gallery update
Press release: The Amiga Future gallery has been expanded considerably during the past months. Especially the past few days we have added sub sections to "Amiga Messen / Shows" and filled them up with entries like Breakpoint and Evoke. By now, we have photos from more than 20 events online.

But we need more images to complete the gallery. Do you have taken any photos on an event? Then please mail us. We'll put them online for you. Do you have photos of the old big Amiga fairs? Then please email us.

In our screenshot area we have more than 3000 game screenshots online. Now we want to put as many screenshots of applications online. Who wants to help us?

By the way, subscribers of the Amiga Future are able to download covers in colour for the included CD in the magazine to print them out. (cg)

MorphOS: XMLViewer 0.12
Michal 'rzookol' Zukowski's XMLViewer is a little MUI-program based on the expat.library for viewing XML-files for MorphOS 2.x (screenshot). Perhaps the program also works under MorphOS 1.4 (an installed aboutbox.mcc is required) but it was not tested.

The last changes:
  • v0.12: Cliboard support: Context menu with Cut Copy Paste was added. Paste command is not implemented yet.
  • v0.11: Searching
  • v0.10: XML header support
  • v0.10: Save support
