Meta compiler: PortablE r6-27-10-2011 (Beta)
Christopher Handley's meta compiler PortablE completes the programming language Amiga E and translates it into other languages.

There is also a PortablE-forum. PortablE supports AmigaOS 4, MorphOS and AROS and in a limited way AmigaOS 3.x and Windows as well.

  • Fully tested on AROS & MorphOS (in addition to AmigaOS4), so all the examples now run smoothly & stably. Please download some of the already compiled examples & try them out :-)
  • Programs now compile on Icaros v.1.3.x, although an AROS bug in Icaros v1.3.0 to v1.3.2 means that the graphical examples won't look good. Icaros v1.3.3 should fix that
  • The GUI module (std/cGui) now supports basic scrollable lists & pictures in buttons (see here for an example), plus many bug fixes
  • The graphics module (std/cGfx) now supports resizable windows, can draw circles, and has been heavily fixed & speeded-up for AROS & MorphOS
  • Added basic networking support for AmigaOS4, which is compatible with Amiga E
  • Added the "Debug" switch to PEGCC, which makes debugging on OS4 much easier. PEGCC also behaves better
  • The sound & music modules (std/cSnd & std/cMusic) now gracefully handle the lack of AHI sound, instead of crashing
  • OPT MULTITHREADED should now be properly thread-safe, especially FastNew/NEW/etc
  • A large number of fixes & tweaks to various things, plus added a couple more Amiga modules, and some missing OS4 functions

Further details to "First Contact"-edition of AmigaOne X1000
Trevor Dickinson (A-EON) and Matthew Leaman (AmigaKit) answered in a thread on some questions to the recently announced First Contact-Edition of the AmigaOne X1000.

  • The customer will have to supply a prepayment The whole amount of the price must be paid short before delivery.
  • The keyboards with the AmigaOne lettering will be also available in white but the black lettering will be available in more localized versions.
  • The systems will be completely built up and preconfigured.
  • The optional available Debian Squeeze Linux supports the hardware completely.
  • The "First Contact"-offer includes a one-year warranty
  • The hardware has series maturity and will be not changed in any way. But AmigaOS 4 does not support all components. THerefore the systems will be delivered with additional plugin cards. This seems to be the only difference of the "Limited Edition" to later editions.

The Third Annual Festive Amiga Game Making Competition
For the third time Moya "Cammy" Jackie will organize the traditional Festive Amiga Game Making Competition. Until 24. December you will have to create a game or playable demo of the game. This year's Festive Amiga Game Making Competition's rule is this::
  • Create an Amiga game adaption of the film, television or book franchise of your choice! The only exception is you cannot make a game based on something that was already made into an Amiga game..
  • There are two categories: Classic Amiga and Next Generation Amiga. The NG category includes games made for AmigaOS4, MorphOS, Aros or RTG OS3 systems. The Classic category requires the game to run on at least an Amiga 1200 with extra RAM or an accelerator. If it requires a 060 and a graphics card, it'll go in the NG category..
  • There will be a panel of experienced judges who will play and rate the games, and then combine and tally the results to find our two major prize winners.
