AROS: Distribution Icaros Desktop 2.2
On Christmas a preview version of Icaros Desktop 2.2 was released. Now the official main version 2.2 is available which provides "little and bigger enhancements like a complete new look, which involves both Magellan toolbars and decoration theme, and a completely new feature called HostBridge, which allows people running Icaros Desktop in a hosted environment to launch host applications along with (or instead of) AROS ones."

Emulator: FS-UAE 2.9.6dev (beta)
Frode Solheim has released a new developer version 2.9.6 of the emulator FS-UAE providing the following changes:

Changes in FS-UAE 2.9.6dev:
  • Changed default fade in/out duration, only fade in fullscreen
  • FS-UAE default is now to show a 692×540 image, not stretched to fill screen
  • Use scale = legacy to revert to old default behavior (can put in Host.fs-uae or use FS-UAE Launcher set set globally)
  • New option scale (choose between full, integer, legacy and no scaling)
  • New option stretch (replaces keep_aspect, though it still works)
  • F11 is now a dedicated toggle auto zoom function, Alt/Cmd+Z cycles through zoom modes as before
  • Render a frame around the view when not stretched (frame = 0 to disable)
  • Cartridge freeze shortcut is now Alt/Cmd+C
  • Alt/Cmd+A now toggles stretch mode (aspect correction)
  • Imported updated translations from
In short, the default scaling/cropping behaviour has changed (though you may not see the change if you have specified certain scaling options). Also, the FS-UAE menu itself is being changed so it will work better on non-16:9 displays (not complete yet).

Changes in FS-UAE Launcher 2.9.6dev:
  • Imported updated translations from
  • Moved additional game databases to a separate settings page
Changes in FS-UAE Arcade 2.9.6dev:
  • FS-UAE Arcade now defaults to fullscreen
  • Run FS-UAE with window_border = 0 to reduce flickering on launch

Gotek/HxC: Adapter for using a floppy emulator as external drive
If you want to use a floppy emulator just like Gotek or HxC as external drive ;- thus avoiding changes on the Amiga case;- you need a corresponding adapter. The Polish developers of Sakura IT has made available documents for constructing such an adapter at Github. The adapter is used in the external disk drives of the developers.

In a Youtube video an user has recorded, how such an adapter could look like - including a self-made 23-Pin-Sub-D plug. (cg) (Translation: (dr)

Emulator: Preview to WinUAE 3.5.0
As usual the developers of the well-known Amiga emulator WinUAE present a short preview to the changes of the next version. WinUAE 3.5.0 is supposed to be released in the middle of June and will provide the following improvements:

New features:
  • Softfloat FPU emulation mode. Bit perfect FPU emulation (except transcendental functions), including full arithmetic exception support. (Co-operation with Previous emulator author)
  • Lightpen emulation absolute coordinate HID (USB light guns) and touch screen device support.
  • American Laser Games second player and Actionware dual light gun adapter emulation.
  • Real harddrive mount lock option. Enables full exclusive access even if drive has Windows mounted FAT partition(s).
  • winlaunch.lib is now built-in feature and is also 64-bit compatible.
  • Show [Paused] in windowed mode title bar when in pause mode.
  • If statefile is loaded with one or more floppy images that can’t be opened: keep fake disk in drive (like previously) and ask for new disk path when missing disk is accessed for the first time.
New emulated features of the chipset:
  • AGA FMODE>0 unaligned bitplane and sprite pointer behavior is now accurate.
  • BPLCON4 XOR mask special case in HAM6/8 or EHB modes.
  • Loading blitter B-DAT manually when B-shift was nonzero.
  • Lightpen hardware is now cycle-exactly emulated.
  • Sprite special case when DMA mode sprite’s start X-coordinate is less than sprite’s DMA slot position.
  • Audio interrupts are delayed by 2 cycles.
Improvements of existing features:
  • 68020+ T0 trace mode is now fully emulated.
  • 68020 cycle exact mode adjustments.
  • Memory cycle exact mode mode accuracy improved
  • Implemented previously unimplemented bsdsocket.library emulation sendmsg() and recvmsg().
  • Recursive mode ROM scanner now skips directories starting with dot.
  • MMU emulation can be now switched on/off on the fly.
  • Release all currently pressed keys when emulation pauses.
  • Added memory cycle-exact Quickstart step for A1200 and CD32 configurations. Less CPU heavy than full cycle-exact and usually not much more worse (or better). At least not until 68020 CE gets better.
Fixed bugs:
  • FM801 16-bit audio corruption.
  • A2090 ST-506 emulation.
  • Possible crash when display was very wide with bitplane DMA overrun condition.
  • Fixed crash when sound card audio play started and channel mode was mono and “Include CD and FMV audio” was ticked.
  • Fixed crash when accessing accelerator board SCSI IO region without any added SCSI device(s).
  • Fixed crash if Blizzard accelerator on board memory size was set to zero.
  • JIT was not 512k or 1M Chip RAM compatible.
  • Manual RAM configuration GUI didn’t accept smaller end address than current board size.
  • Manually configured but disabled (size zero) Z2/Z3 banks were added to system.
  • Apollo 1240/1260 memory address space fixed
  • PC bridgeboard NE2000 boot crash fix.
  • Windowed mode mouse does not anymore hit hidden barriers if window is partially outside of desktop or uncaptured if window is on top of task bar.
  • If Custom autoconfig board order was enabled, expansion devices custom config setting(s) was not saved correctly.
  • 68000 address error stacked PC was not correct in some read-modify-write instructions
  • Untrap middle mouse button option was stuck.
  • GUI listview column width calculation used default font size, not selected font.
  • 68030 CE/prefetch mode cache access bug fixed.
  • G-REX and Cirrus Logic graphics board state was reset if RAM or HW Info GUI panels were opened after emulation was started.
