Amiga developer Dave Needle died
According to RJ Mical on his Facebook site, Dave Needle has died. After their employment at Amiga Corporation, they both worked as developers of the game consoles Atari Lynx and 3DO.

Dave Needle did belong to the original hardware developers of the Amiga. Despite of circulated love-hate relationship between him and Jay Miner's dog Mitchie he later pointed out to his relevance of the computer development. In the past year he did participate in the Amiga 30th anniversary party (picture). (snx) (Translation: dr)

Accelerator board: Adding a FPU to the ACA-1233
The Amiga user Allan 'Drewlio77' Versaevel has upgraded his ACA-1233 accelerator board (55 MHz) by adding a 68882-FPU and a coresponding oscillator by himself. In his opinion, this might be the fastest 68030-board for the Amiga 1200.

Additional to his abridged report, under the title link he also has published pictures. (snx) (Translation: dr)

IBrowse developers explained usage of TLS with AmiSSL
The developers wrote: "I'm sure you are all well aware that many secure websites are normally not reachable with IBrowse 2.4 any longer, due to servers shutting off SSLv2 and SSLv3 connections due to the POODLE attack. However, there is a solution...

This is delayed advice, as I have only just realised it was possible: contrary to the previous news item, you should enable both "SSLv2 support" and "SSLv3 support" on the "Security" page of the IBrowse preferences. You must then also enter the following command in a shell:

setenv save AmiSSL/SSL_CLIENT_VERSION tls1

This will force any most applications that use AmiSSL, including IBrowse, to disable both SSLv2 and SSLv3, and use more secure TLSv1 connections instead.

This issue will be properly addressed in IBrowse 2.5 and a new version of AmiSSL." (cg) (Translation: dr)
