MorphOS: Trashcan released
Jacek 'jacadcaps' Piszczek, member of the MorphOS team, has released the first version of his TrashFileSystem, which provides a trashcan under Ambient.

Attention: Beta testers of MorphOS 3.10 should not install it, for "you downgrade vital components of the system to 3.9, which causes other parts to fail. Wait for the next beta iso."

  • Can trash files and directories on any writable volume
  • Collects all trashed files/dirs into a virtual Trashcan volume
  • Files in Trashcan are read-only; directories can only be restored (no read access)
  • Has two virtual disk.infos for empty/full state - the only file that can be written
  • Supports removable volumes
Ambient integration:
  • Trashcan icon on desktop - can be emptied with the context menu, supports dropping files
  • Regular listers/icon views - files can be trashed with a hotkey or context menu
  • Lister/icon view inside Trashcan - files can be restored to their original location
Download: trashcan.lha (1 MB) (snx) (Translation: dr)

AROS: AEROS for Odroid U2/U3 and CuBox-i available for free
Pascal Papara's Linux-hosted AROS distribution AEROS is available for free for Odroid U2 and U3 (but not for XU3) as well as for CuBox-i under the title link.

In future, Pascal Papara will not support the CuBox-i platform. Bug reports and similar ones are not requested any longer. Instead he will focus on the Odroid models XU3/XU4 as well as the Raspberry Pi and the Orange Pi. For the U2 and U3 there will be only available AROS updates, but no ones for the Linux part.
