AROS: i.MX515-port intended
In future Genesi is going to use Freescale's ARM-compatible i.MX51-processor instead of the PowerPC. Therefore a corresponding developer program was started.

Under the title link Michal Schulz has suggested an AROS-port. Therfore now projects can also be sent which requires AROS. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Programming language: News about AmiBlitz
In two threads (1, 2) on several developers discussed the future of the programming language. Clearing the AmiBlitz-syntax, linking to GCC and renaming the project were some of the topics.

One thing has been already changed: Users of AmiBlitz can now save their source files as ASCII-files. Therefore the complete AmiBlitz source code is available as SVN-Repository.

Furthermore soon the official website of the AmiBlitz project will use the open source solution Joomla which would make it more easy to integrate it with the SVN-Repository but which also would make it not compatible with browsers available for AmigaOS 3. THerefore the webmaster Jens "bruZard" Henschel asked in a poll for feedback of the users.

In his Henschel told about developments from the world of the Blitz-Derivate: Additionally to AmiBlitz he gave detailed information about BlitzMax with which applications and games for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X can be developed. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Amiga Future: update of the article database
Press release: We have worked on the extension of the Amiga Future database for the past months. By now it contains about 3000 articles for online reading. This week we added some workshops and an up-to-date article about astronomy photography by Mirko Strau▀.

To extend the database even further we are looking for English and German articles. There were lots of websites offering reviews and workshops - unfortunately, many of them diappeared together with their valuable content. We would like to offer this kind of information online again.

Have you made a website with such articles which isn't online anymore? Or did you write something yourself? Then please contact us at the editorial office. (cg) (Translation: cg)
