New website for AmigaOS 3.x developers
A website for AmigaOS 3.x developers has been set up at the title link, which contains articles, a forum and the NDK. The addition of online browsable versions of the autodocs is planned.

Amiga Kit: Price of A600GS games console set/OctaMED update
As AmigaKit writes to us, the price of the games console has now been set at 119 euros. OctaMED v8 from A-EON Technology is to be bundled with the A600GS. In-house developers have added AHI support to the original 1996 source code for OctaMED. This is the first time this support has been added to this programme.

OctaMED_AHI

This should enable OctaMED to use the A600GS audio driver instead of Paula emulation. OctaMED was also tested with a USB-to-MIDI adapter cable connected to the A600GS: it can play MIDI devices. This could make the A600GS interesting for musicians who want to use OctaMED but don't have a lot of money to spend on old Amiga hardware.

In addition, OctaMED V8 is currently being updated to support the CAMD MIDI library, adding AHI support. As a result, OctaMED now runs on AmigaOS 4 machines with AHI and no longer requires hacks.

AmigaKit also reports that the development of AmiBench is making good progress and is ready for the project launch:

amibench

AmiBench Release V46.1 contains the latest version of
AK-Datatypes including a new Picture Datatype V46.9 and Datatypes Library V46.24 which have been optimised for the A600GS. The updates have also been ported to their PPC counterparts: Picture Datatype V54.9 and Datatypes Library V54.24 will be included in the next Enhancer Software 2.3 for PPC systems.

You can now express your interest by entering your e-mail address on the official website of the A600GS. (dr)
