AmigaOS 3.1.4: Download version unavailable again, physical edition announced
Eleven days ago, the downloads of Hyperion's AmigaOS 3.1.4 were taken down: Amino had sent a Cease And Desist to Hyperion's eCommerce partner handling digital sales - the Amiga parties claim that Hyperion's 3.1.4 sales are violating their copyrights and trademarks. In response, the Belgian company switched to a different distributor and the next day their product was available for purchase again.

Yesterday the "Buy Now!" links on Hyperion's website stopped working again. Hyperion reacted by removing the links from their site today and announcing on Facebook that digital sales were closed and that physical copies of 3.1.4 were now shipped to dealers.

But from the "possible sources" listed on Hyperion's website, only Alinea seems to offer the update. Vesalia customers are reporting that their dealer won't sell the update for now, due to the unresolved legal issues.

The picture in Alinea's webshop raises another question: The label on the disks clearly states "Copyright 2018 Hyperion Entertainment CVBA. All Rights Reserved". That's the copyright notice the original release of AmigaOS 3.1.4 showed on its Kickstart screen and inside Workbench's "About" dialog.

In the digital release, this was changed to "Copyright 2018 Hyperion Entertainment CVBA. Developed under License" once 3.1.4 reappeared after the takedown ten days ago. Developer Olaf Barthel had taken the blame for this in a posting on Amigaworld, explaining the copyright notice had slipped in by accident and he forgot to rebuild the Kickstart before the release to fix it.

Vampire V4 (standalone) boots AmigaOS 3.1
For the first time a video shows how the standalone version of the Vampire is booting AmigaOS 3.1. First it is booted without any volume and you can see that a modified Kickstart-ROM is used: "68080 Apollo Team, Test Exec Build, Not for public Use!". The second time a CF-card was connected to the computer which starts the Workbench without any problems - even a bit slowly according to the tester. (cg) (Translation: dr)
