Elbox: FastATA Mk IV with SATA-controller and CompactFlash-Slot
The fourth issue of Elbox' harddrive controller FastATA is available in three different versions - for Zorro III, Amiga 1200 or for the Elbox ZIV-device - and now has PATA- ("IDE") ports as well as a SATA port and a CompactFlash slot.

Additionally new software (ATA3.driver 11.0, FastATA4000 ver. 4.0) enclosed with the new controllers is optimized for best compatibility with Compact Flash cards and SATA drives. CF cards controlled by a FastATA controller are seen in the Amiga system as a fixed (non-removable) device, which facilitates installation of bootable partitions on them. (cg) (Translation: dr)

MorphOS: Blender 2.62
Guillaume 'Yomgui' Roguez has published an update of his MorphOS-port of the 3D-graphic programm Blender which is available on his website as well as via Grunch. The PowerSDL.library is no longer required:
  • Sync on 2.62 release tag
  • Fixed locale issue for LC_NUMERIC (Forced to "C" now).
  • Fixed crash caused by bad BLI_thread_queue_xxx() implementation in thread_mos.c (crash in material Preview).
  • MEM_mapallocN() uses AllocVecAligned() for 16bytes alligned memory allocations (SIMD compat).
  • Raytrace: Altivec support added.
  • Added carve lib build (replace old boolean code)
  • Added offical fix (#30158): Remesh crash
  • Removed PowerSDL usage (was needed for sound, but nobody use it...)

A-EON Technology supports RadeonHD driver development
Press release: Wellington, 23rd February 2012. Following the recent release of the RadeonHD graphics driver for AmigaOS 4.1 Update 5, which made it's official debut on the AmigaONE X1000 "First Contact" system, we are pleased to reveal that we have now concluded a further agreement with Hans de Ruiter for the continued development of his RadeonHD drivers for the AmigaOS.

In a statement de Ruiter commented, "I am currently working to get the driver fully ready for 3D, and to release quality. Thanks to the support of Trevor Dickinson (A-EON Technology), I will be able to devote more time to RadeonHD driver development over the next few months, and achieve this goal much sooner than would otherwise have been the case.

The features being worked on include: Vertical blanking interrupt support for RadeonHD cards (no more wasting CPU cycles when double-buffering); Video RAM (VRAM) management for the RadeonHD_RM.resource (intelligent VRAM buffer paging)."

De Ruiter added: "The last feature is essential for stable 3D operation. I look forward to delivering RadeonHD.chip version 1.x and, of course, to be able to run modern 3D applications using RadeonHD cards and AmigaOS."

Dickinson said in reply: "I am really pleased to help fund Hans' RadeonHD driver work. This is excellent news for all AmigaONE X1000 owners, including myself ;-) and hopefully should benefit all AmigaOS 4 users in the future."

About Hans de Ruiter & HDRLab: Hans de Ruiter is an electrical & electronic engineer and leading AmigaOS developer and Amiga enthusiast. His website - HDRLab - details various projects, many of which are AmigaOS related. The biggest of these is the RadeonHD driver for AmigaOS, an ambitious project that aims to deliver modern graphics capabilities for the AmigaOS platform.

About AmigaOS: The AmigaOS dates back to 1985 with the introduction of the landmark Amiga 1000. Today, under the guidance and control of Hyperion Entertainment, AmigaOS has evolved into a modern operating system without losing that intrinsic "Amiga" look and feel.

About the AmigaONE X1000: The AmigaONE X1000 is not like other computers. It is a culmination of efforts by real Amiga enthusiasts and developers to create powerful, modern desktop hardware for the AmigaOS. It is the natural evolution of the Amiga's PowerPC lineage and is based on the PA-Semi Dual-core PA6T-1682M CPU and includes Xena, a "Software Defined Silicon" co-processor. Above all it runs the latest version of the AmigaOS.
