Software directory: supports Amiga platforms helps searching for software alternatives. For instance, when you switch from Windows to Linux, you can check what is a free Microsoft Word alternative for that operating system.

Since yesterday the service also lists programs for AmigaOS, MorphOS and AROS. The database depends on third party submissions, thus (after registration) there is a form to add further software. (snx)

Free hardware: Atari-USB Joystick-Adapter
Stefan 'Develin' Blixth has developed an adapter which connects classic joysticks with the USB-port of modern computers. The adapter does not require any additional drivers, the included firmware can be updated directly over the USB-port.

The open source V-USB is used as firmware. His PCB-layout Blixth also has made available under the GPL. The developer is going to sell assembled adapters but asks you for some patience. All those who are going to buy such a adapter, please contact Blixth via eMail. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Meta compiler: PortablE r6-04-26-2016 (beta)
Christopher Handley's meta compiler PortablE is a "recreation of the Amiga E programming language" providing many improvements. It can be used on AmigaOS4, AROS, MorphOS and Windows.

Changes since the last release:
  • Built-in procedures can now support unlimited parameters (although only some have been updated to use this ability)
  • Improved MUI & ReAction modules to use procedures with unlimited parameters (instead of immedate tag lists). So the C/C++ code generated for GUIs is now human-readable!
  • Added the NoListOptim switch, so that the code generated for Immediate Lists can be more human-readable
  • AmigaOS4: Added the 'intuition/menuclass' module, aka "AISS menus", and the example program "Examples/Amiga/OS4_ReAction/MenuClass.e"
  • When a bug exception was thrown during compilation, it could give the wrong message. Now fixed
  • Fixed a few module bugs
