Cloanto: Transcripts of speeches on events (2014-2017)
In the forum of, 'Tripos' transcribed three videos in English, in which Mike Battilana gives an insight into the work of Cloanto from now up to 1986.

'Tripos' was inspired by A Discourse on Possible Futures, recently published on, discussing "discuss possible futures involving open source, a nonprofit and/or foundation, and other long-term preservation scenarios for the legacy which we worked so passionately to keep alive". Similar considerations about a network for possible releases of Amiga components also had Olaf Barthel. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Commodore documents on Hombre chipset found
Dr. Ed Hepler, who is the former "Director of System and VLSI architecture" at Commodore, has provided detailed documents on the Hombre chipset. The PA-RISC-based Hombre would have been the base for the planned next generation of Amiga computers - if Commodore would not have gone bankcrupt. Until the last moment obviously they tried to sell the technology or to find an investor: a presentation featuring Hombre was created for a "Philips / Commodore Meeting" is dated 15. April 1994 - two weeks later Commodore Geschichte does not exist anymore. (cg) (Translation: dr)

  • In the graphics_lib.exe a problem with RecFill was fixed that occure if it was used in the Border area
  • The blacklisting are extended that the program TypeSmith now works with the ToolType entry "bxxxTypeSmith" in the BlackList Icon. "bxxx" indicates that the hight of title bar are not set back to the defaults.
  • The max posibile value of the Icon-Size in the Afa_Prefs program are set to 256
  • Thomas Klein has fix a Hit in morelibspace, reported by Frank Weber
  • Thomas Klein extend AfA_OS_Loader to support the parameter "OPTIMAL" with it the AfA_OS_Libs are started in its optimal order
  • The AfA_Prefs program was revised by Thomas Klein, it is now complete localised and there are two new ToolTypes: "ForceSkin" tries to close and open the Workbench so that the settings are used for all windows at the end of the program. With "Layout=(0-2)" it is possible to switch between three layouts of the Window settings, 1 is the default its the one that are used in older versions. At 0 and 2 the stettings are grouped.
