AmigaOS 4: FTP server 'ZitaFTP' 1.31
Hans de Ruiter has released version 1.31 of his commercial FTP server 'ZitaFTP'. He wrote:

"I'm pleased to announce that the first ZitaFTP Server update for 2022 is finally here! As usual, there are bug fixes and improvements. The big new feature is that you can now use proper signed SSL/TLS certificates, which is very useful when making ZitaFTP Server accessible over the internet.

If you're looking for free SSL certificates, I recommend ZeroSSL (affiliate link). Unlike LetsEncrypt, ZeroSSL allows you to create free certificates manually, so you don't need an ACME client in order to create certificates (which ZitaFTP doesn't have built in yet). So, you can generate a free certificate, and enable auto-renewal later, when ZitaFTP gains that ability. I plan to support both LetsEncrypt and ZeroSSL.

I was going to release a video showing how to set up ZitaFTP to be accessible over the internet instead of just your local network. However, I ran out of time, so that'll have to wait until later. I didn't want to delay this release any further.

The process of getting ZitaFTP online is pretty easy, at least on the ZitaFTP side. Configuring port-forwarding on your router may take a bit more work. Either way, you can download this update now."

A single license of 'ZitaFTP Server' costs around 47 euros. The program can be tested free of charge for 30 days. (dr)

Arcade conversions: Amidar500 and MsPacman 500, Preview video of Scramble 500
After his Pacman port released in September, Jean-FranÁois Fabre seems to have taken a liking to the conversion of old Aracde games: In the meantime, with Amidar500 (video) and MsPacman 500 (video) further Amiga versions of Pacman clones from the early eighties have been released.


Fabre's games are all available for free at itch.io, but it is possible to make a small donation to the developer before downloading. The Frenchman's current project is a port of the shoot'em-up classic Scramble, a preview video shows the current state of work.

Update: (24.02.22, 15:00, cg)

In the meantime, a new preview video of Scramble has been released. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Commercial Jump'n Run: The Dream of Rowan 1.2
The Jump'n Run 'Dream of Rowan' (Video), originally released in 2017, was now updated to version 1.2 which improves the jump routine and "removes any CPU restrictions".


The game requires a harddisk, the ECS chipset, at least 1,9 MB free Chip RAM and Kickstart 3.x. It can be purchased for 10 Euros via itch.io. Owners of the original release of Dream of Rowan should have already received this update. (cg)

Detailed review (Czech): The Pegasos I from bPlan
In June last year Martina HřebcovŠ had published a detailed review and test on the Czech Amiga portal about the use of graphics cards under the Sam440ep-flex. Now she got her hands on a Pegasos I computer, which she not only reviews in detail (Czech), but also tries to exploit its performance as much as possible by overclocking and installing suitable graphics cards, memory and USB 2.0 card.

Do it yourself: Using PC floppy disk drives on Amiga with EZ-FD
Graham Thomson's EZ-FD is based on the same idea as Eyetech's EZ-DF0, which they used in their EZ-Tower cases for the Amiga 1200 to use standard PC floppy disk drives. At the title link he released the KiCAD files for the circuit board. (snx)

8/16-bit emulator for Mac OS and Linux: Clock Signal
Thomas Harte's Clock Signal is an emulator for various 8- and 16-bit platforms aiming to be invisible to the user. The idea is to simply start the source medium without configuring the emulator oneself. Clock Signal is available for Mac OS and Unix-compatible systems. While there is also an Amiga emulation included, it "remains wilfully inaccurate" for now. (snx)
