MiST: FPGA-AGA-Core 1.2
For the Atari/Amiga clone MiST (amiga-news.de reported) an update of the emulated Amiga with AGA-support has been released which further increases the compatibility.

Changes in version 1.2:
  • Initial implementation of programmable display modes
  • OSD HRTmon enable/disable switch is working (ON – F11 acts as NMI and enters HRTmon; OFF – F11 is HELP key)
  • Proper handling of CPU access to Chip-RAM & custom regs – CPU waits for free slot when turbo option is disabled
  • Fixed playfield 2 color LUT offset when playfield 2 has priority for OCS/ECS modes
  • Some IRQ changes
  • Added support for undocumented Agnus/Denise behaviour when BPL=7 in ECS/OCS mode (fixes demos like SushiBoyz by Ghostown, Sliced&Diced by Dekadence etc.)
  • Blitter line mode fixed (fixes demos like SushiBoyz & Sunglasses by Ghostown, Vectorize by RSi etc.)
  • Bitfield instructions fixed, barrel shifter implemented by Till Harbaum
  • Fixed colortable for sprites (bplxor) – fixes Alien Breed 3D (and probably many others)
  • Fixed keyboard rate
  • Kickstart-ROM is also uploaded to mirror position (E0)
  • Fixed reset problems & Fast-RAM disappearing
  • Added CPU CACR cache control, fixed reading CACR reg
  • Added scanlines for non-doublescan config
  • Fixed video dithering – both spatial & random dithering weren’t working properly

Kickstart switcher: A500Flash
A500Flash is a Kickstart switcher allowing Flash-memory reprogramming. The device should be installed inside the Amiga A500/A500+/A2000.

  • Designed for Amiga A500/A500+/A2000 models
  • Comes with 512kB of built-in Flash memory
  • Support for 512kB ROM images – only the primary ones
  • Switching between available Kickstart images by holding down CTRL+A+A keys for about 3 seconds
  • Original ROM chip required
  • PCB boards installation in place of original ROM and Gary chip
  • Flash chips programming using native Amiga OS software
  • Included software requires Amiga OS 1.3+
A500Flash 1M
  • Designed for Amiga A500/A500+/A2000 models
  • Comes with 1MB of built-in Flash memory
  • Support for 1MB ROM images - standard and extended ROM images
  • Switching between available Kickstart images by holding down CTRL+A+A keys for about 3 seconds
  • Original ROM chip required

Web-Browser: NetSurf 3.4
Chris Young has updates his AmigaOS-4-port of the web browser NetSurf. Additional to improvements (websites now are better displayed) and bug fixes, now the Duktape Javascript engine is included. It is disabled by default because the support of Javascript still is incomplete.

For users of AmigaOS 3.5 or higher, there is also a new beta version. The author asks for feedback to improve this version.
