Amiga-/Atari ST-clone: MiST
Till Harbaum's "MiST" is a FPGA-motherboard which is to emulate different home computer or arcade automats with the help of different "cores". Originally MiST has been only a Atari ST-clone and therefore - similar to Minimig - was called "MiniST". Since then the project is developed as "MiST" (aMIga/ST).

MiST has a more powerful FPGA which can also emulate a 68000-CPU and therefore does not need an additional processor. The motherboard has among others four USB-ports, a SD-slot, two ports for Amiga-/Atari joysticks as well as a VGA-output.

The Polish dealer Lotharek sells the boards which costs with black or white metal case 190 Euro (plus shipping). Currently the cases are produced. The computers will be delivered at the end of June. (cg) (Translation: (dr)

Memory extension: A604n
The next version of the Amiga-600 memory extension A604 developed by Individual Computers ( reported on it) is called A604n and since today can be bought (Alinea, AmigaKit, Vesalia). Instead of an integrated realtime clock, the optional RTC module from the same manufacturer can be added now. (snx) (Translation: (dr)

07.Jun.2013 Old news imported to database
Just like many other websites, from 1998 until 2001 mainly worked with static HTML-sites which at that time were maintained with GoldEd and some ARexx-macros. Since January and June 2001, the German and English sections have been using a tailor-made database solution which was created by Sven Drieling.

Now Christoph Gutjahr and Sven Drieling have integrated all 10.000 news from the "static phase" of Amiga-News into the database. Among others, about 900 HTML-files had to be converted and refered - additionally the server now manages many redirections for as many as possible external links are supposed to stay valid.

Altogether, the Amiga-News database includes almost 50.000 news. A little walk through our archives always is a worthwhile delight - for you can find sad and still more sad news as well as very appropriate comments or some crazy news. (cg) (Translation: (dr)

Game launcher: X-bEnCH 0.90 Alpha
Press release: X-bEnCh is an Amiga game launcher & more: With 128 colors on screen (even on a simple A500), this frontend can autoscan your hard-drive to find all your WHDLoad games or your .exe files and organize them in launching listings.

X-bEnCh can also manage manual listings and has an internal script system, the X-bEnCh Scripts (for non WHDLoad games for example). It requires very few ressources and is compatible with all Amiga setups. X-bEnCh also has an integrated CLI fully compatible with the Workbench CLI features.

Please note that this version is not complete. I put it online because there has been no update since last March but all is not yet implemented. I will soon release some new 0.9x updated (0.91/0.92/...) to add all the missing features and fix some bugs that are already known.

Main New features:
  • Top15 listing: This new feature is able to create a top of all your lists. Note that the top15 is already functional as previously planned, the needed database is created from the 0.8x versions
  • Multikeys FastJump: Simply type the name of the game that you want and the new search engine will drive you directly to that one
  • XplorEr: The long awaited X-bEnCh file manager is finaly here! Still young it will evolve quickly in the nexts release

  • Unlimited subdir level scan
  • Internal script system

  • Autoscan and use WHDLoad Tooltypes
  • If no Tooltypes availables you can set up default Tooltypes
  • MegaRam mode to gain extra chipram without rebooting

  • Files/Dirs manager included (Xpl0rEr)
  • Integrated cLi 100% Amiga CLI compatible
