AmigaOS 4: SysMon 2.5, FastLHA, FastLZX, FastZIP
Guillaume Boesel's SysMon is MUI-based and makes it possible to identify and remove freezed windows and to monitor drives, assigns and system information.

In version 2.5 it is now possible to request a desired network port if there are several ones. Additionally the user-interface was reworked. The benchmark-program RageMem now already is included in the archive.

The same author also has released three little tools called FastLHA, -LZX und -ZIP. With these tools the corresponding compression programs can be launched (screenshots: AmiDock, Kontextmenü).

Podcast: Giana Sisters Tribute (BitJam-Episode #161)
Jürgen Beck wrote: Even little girls are getting old one day. Once upon a time, in 1987 to be precise, we played around with two cute girls on C64 and Amiga: The Great Giana Sisters. A great jump 'n run game in the style of Mario, featuring fantastic music by sound magician Chris Hülsbeck.

Now, 25 years later, a new game with the twin girls has been released. After a successful Kickstarter campaign Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams was brought to life by Black Forest Games. With music by Chris Hülsbeck himself, Fabian del Priore and the metal guys from Machinae Supremacy plus awesome graphics where you can switch fluently between the beautiful landscapes and dark places this download title captured our hearts by storm.

Now we want to celebrate the 25th birthday of the Giana Sisters together with the creators and you! The BitJam podcast episode #161 features not only the original Giana theme, but also music from the DS version of the game, which was released in 2009, the brand new Twisted Dreams game as well as some cool remixes. Jump, dash and twirl together with us through a beautiful soundscape! (snx) (Translation: dr)
