When in 2018 I produced the physical edition of Huenison, I intended to close forever the development of that game (originally released in 2013 and then updated five times). Yet, writing Blastaway inspired me some video system features/improvements that I just couldn't resist backport to Huenison. And now, an updated version of Huenison is available!

CHANGELOG
* Simplified and optimized CRT pixel modes.
* Made 4x LCD pixel mode slightly brighter.
* Added 6x pixel modes.
* Added hardware-accelerated zooming for solid pixel modes to AmigaOS version.

Get the latest version of Huenison from https://www.retream.com/Huenison.
(Who plays it on Steam will be able to update it directly from there.)

Even more good news for the owners of the physical edition: due to the very limited production runs, the CDs were duplicated (i.e. burned), not replicated (i.e. glass mastered), thus I seized the chance to ask the factory to leave the CDs open so that, if I'd ever release an update, I could tell you... it's possible to update the CDs!
The CDs can updated by burning a new session that replaces the following files and preserves all the others:
* install-AmigaOS.info
* install-Windows.exe
* manual.pdf
* AmigaOS/Huenison
* AmigaOS/icon-64x64.info
* AmigaOS/icon-80x80.info
* AmigaOS/icon-96x96.info
* AmigaOS/icon-128x128.info
* AmigaOS/icon-160x160.info
* AmigaOS/icon-192x192.info
* AmigaOS/icon-256x256.info
* Windows/Huenison.exe

*** WARNING ***
Updating a CD is a delicate process that might damage the CD, so it is necessary to have specific knowledge and tools. If you are not completely sure, do not attempt the update or ask an expert to help. IN ANY CASE, UPDATE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

About three weeks ago, an online article about the Amiga was published in the Austrian "Standard". The title there reads: "Amiga vs. Atari ST: The Religious War of the 1980s". The article looks at two major computers in the so-called 16-bit revolution and briefly discusses the merits of both systems.

BestWB is a workbench pack that aims to be much like an enhancement, an updated extension to AmigaOS 3.1.4, without all those hardware penalties typically associated with these kind of packs. It is indeed a better 3.1.4 than 3.1.4 itself!

BestWB will suit anyone that wishes a clean AmigaOS experience without the unneeded bloat often associated with these kind of distros. It persues speed and usability and does not focus on eye candy.

If you are already a BestWB user get the updates from previous versions here:

Emu68 is a project currently still in development by Michal Schulz. He was already working as a developer for the AROS project. Michal Schulz's goal is to write a Motorola MC680x0 emulator for the Raspberry Pi. From the Raspberry Pi 2 upwards, it should be possible in future to develop code for the m68k architecture much faster. In addition to a virtual CPU Emu68 should in future also be able to emulate Motorola FPUs. The focus is set on a fast code execution, ensuring the highest possible compatibility with the respective CPUs and FPUs. Currently the emulator reaches over 1400 SysInfo MIPS and more than 1350000 Dhrystones.
