Games announcements: Morci, Kung Fu Master, Green Beret, Project Quest
Jump'n run 'Morci' (video) has been teased for a while, now it has also got a name. The title, realized with the Scorpion Engine, requires AGA and some Fast RAM.

Kung Fu Master (Videos: 1, 2) comes from the creators of Turbo Sprint and is supposed to be a conversion of the arcade classic of the same name.

'Green Beret' aka 'Rush'n Attack' is another arcade classic. The Amiga conversion is developed with the Scorpion Engine.

Project Quest comes from the makers of the announced tactical shooter Project Horizon and uses its engine, but offers a fantasy setting. A demo version of the game is already available for download. The developers are asking for feedback on whether this side project should also be developed further. (cg) (Translation: bb)

Web browser: IBrowse 2.5.5
Press release: IBrowse 2.5.5 is now available for download (OS4 users may use AmiUpdate instead). This is a maintenance release with an important fix for a crash bug introduced in 2.5.4, along with performance improvements, the addition of third-party cookie blocking and a few other fixes. The full list of changes follows:
  • Updated Danish, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Spanish and Swedish catalog translations, by Niels Bache, Samir Hawamdeh, Kolbjørn Barmen, Mariusz Danilewicz, Javier de las Rivas and Pär Boberg respectively
  • Tweaked the installer to work around the broken Version command in A-EON's Enhancer Software
  • OS4: Fixed truncated multipart form submission, when any file upload elements were left blank (e.g. Gmail)
  • Fixed problems with the accept/reject from this server buttons not always working correctly in cookie action requesters
  • Added third-party and first-party cookie types to the information shown in cookie action requesters
  • Added AmigaOS 3.2 detection
  • Third-party cookies now detected and can be blocked using the security and/or URL prefs settings
  • Resumed downloads in the download manager didn't show the size, but now show the total expected complete size
  • Fixed corruption of auto resumed incomplete HTTP gzip encoded downloaded files
  • Fixed objects causing crashes, due to the previous changes in the 'iframe' code
  • Improved parsing speed of huge inline JavaScript sections
  • Don't bother to copy inline JavaScript into a buffer, if JavaScript is disabled, improving performance
  • Tweaked puddle size of one of the main memory pools, to improve performance
This is the fifth free update for registered users of IBrowse 2.5. IBrowse 2.1-2.4 and 1.x users may upgrade to IBrowse 2.5.5 via our store at discounted rates. (dr)

Developer package: DevPack 1.11
The free "DevPack" by Dimitris Panokostas and Philipp Lonke is intended for Amiga users who want to develop their own software under AmigaOS. The new version 1.11 contains updated versions of RedPill and vasm/vlink, also a link to the AmigaOS 3.2-NDK has been added. AmiPython 2.3.3 has been removed from the distribution because the author apparently did not agree with the distribution as part of DevPack. (cg) (Translation: bb)

Magazine archive: Amiga Future Archive DVD #5
Press release: The Amiga Future Archive DVD #5 has been released. It is a pressed DVD9 with over 6 GByte of data. Even if it should be no problem in principle, make sure that your drive can read a DVD9. Of course you also need a PDF viewer.

On the Amiga Future Archive DVD #5 you can find the following issues of Amiga Future as PDF:
  • Deutsch: Amiga Future Issue 11-142
  • Englisch: Amiga Future Issue 67-142
Issues 11 to 26 have been scanned. Unfortunately, the quality here is not exactly perfect. All other issues are PDFs in very high quality. Issue 11 was the first German Amiga Future issue that was published. Issue 67 was the first English issue of Amiga Future. So there are over 20 years of Amiga Future history on the DVD.

There is no update possibility from previous version of the Amiga Future Archive DVD. Please have understanding for this. (cg) (Translation: bb)
