AmigaOS 4/AROS: Bounty-project for Odyssey web browser
Under the title link on, a bounty project for releasing Fabien 'Fab' Coeurjoly's web browser Odyssey under an open-source-licence was established which would make it possible to adapt it to AmigaOS 4 and AROS.

Earlier versions of his browser the author already released for free. But these versions cannot play e.g. HTML5-videos. This fearture Fabien Coeurjoly developed himself; there is not any other Amiga implemenation for that except the (still unsatisfying) Firefox/Timberwolf. Alternative browsers for different operating systems are open-source but often overdependent (Chrome) or bloated (Webkit-GTK), or not open-source (Apple Quicktime for the Mac-version of Webkit or the Windows-implementation).

Pascal Papara has released a first public version of Aminux. It is a 68k-distribution AROS Vision via FS-UAE for USB-sticks using the Linux-distribution Mikroknoppix. An installation is not necessary.

For the next version it is planned to execute Linux and AROS applications out of AROS/68k. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Event: First reports of Alchimie X (update)
On the first day of the Alchimie X in France, there were the following news about Minimig and AmigaOS 4:
  • The announced software surprise for AmigaOS 4.1 was a DVD with over 70 game ports provided by Hugues 'HunoPPC' Nouvel.
  • Secondly, ACube Systems lifted the secret about the "MiniMig+", which is as fast as a 68030-processor with 30 MHz. An ARM-chip, 32 MB RAM (can be upgraded up to 64 MB), 8 MB chip-RAM, two USB-ports, network connection, realtime clock, two SD-card readers and 18-Bit-video output are integrated. The FPGA is twice as big as before and thus sufficiently big for an AGA-core. It will be half as large as the Mini-ITX-format. The project will be not finished in near future.
  • Additional to the DVD, Hugues Nouvel has released five new games for AmigaOS 4.1, which are mainly Egoshooter (World Of Padman, a new version of ioQuake, Smokin'Guns, Star Trek Voyager Elite Force and Tremulous) as well as the puzzle game Dale Hardshovel.
  • On Sunday for MorphOS 3.4 the following facts have been announced:
    • Support of non-native PowerBook screen resolutions
    • Improved support of R300-based graphic boards (Radeon 9500, 9600, 9700, 9800)
    • Highly improved AGP-transfer rates on G5-computers (by a factor  of 5, up to 1,2 GB/s) and bug fixed 16-Bit screen resolutions
    • Improved network-stack (speed and configuration)
    • Password protection of the screen (during booting the computer or after inactivity)
  • MorphOS 3.5 will be a bug fix release
  • MorphOS 3.6 is supposed to include the following components:
    • Support of modern graphic boards
    • Support of further G5-models
    • Javascript-JIT for Odyssey-Webbrowser
    • CUPS-Integration
    • SSHFS and SMBFS via FUSE

Indivision AGA Mk2: Inofficial SuperPlus configuration file
For the Flickerfixer Indivision AGA Mk2 an inofficial configuration file for using the monitor driver SuperPlus has been released (version 40.5 of the driver must be installed in Sys:Devs/Monitors).

The file has been not completely finished and may cause minor problems - e.g. the boot picture does not fit the full screen and is not centered. It must be chosen in the preferences programm of the Indivision and then set in the Workbench-preferences of the screen mode "SuperPlus HighResLaced (800x600)".

With the same configuration file, HighGFX can be used as well. Only the default setting 1024x768 must be deactivated and instead the screen resolution 800x600 in the Workbench-preferences used.
