AmiGemini 0.5 released: A Gemini browser for the Amiga

We have already reported on Karl Jeacle's AmiGemini project in the past. This is a browser for the relatively new and largely unknown Gemini protocol. This protocol is focused on text contents, which makes it leaner than the HTTP protocol, but compared to the older Gopher protocol it offers the advantage of a protected connection to the server, for example.

Version 0.5 of the likewise still young browser for the Gemini network by Karl Jeacle has now been published. The current version now supports client certificates and identities, saves a list of the most frequently visited Gemini pages and now also enables navigation using keyboard shortcuts. Furthermore, AmiGemini 0.5 now comes with an installation script. It can now handle links with non-ASCII characters and enables more characters to be displayed on narrow screens.

The current version can be downloaded from Aminet: https://aminet.net/package/comm/net/AmiGemini

A1200 memory expansion with 8 MB Fast RAM to build yourself

Oleg Mishin has published his third project on GitHub, which is an 8 MB Fast RAM extension for the Amiga 1200 with a real-time clock. The extension relies on a Microchip ATF1508 CPLD, the firmware of which is based, among other things, on the source code of this Amiga 600 8 MB Fast RAM extension: http://lvd.nedopc.com/Projects/a600_8mb/index.html In addition, a circuit board with four layers is useded for this project.

As Oldeg Mishin writes, the goal of this project was to learn more about 68000 CPUs and Verilog. At the moment it is not yet possible to limit the usable memory of the expansion via jumpers or switches for the Amiga 1200.

Images, Gerber files, firmware and further information are available in the GitHub repository: https://github.com/OlegMishin/A1200_8MB_FASTRAM

Amiga Future magazine & AFA Viewer index update

The Amiga Future magazine index has been updated by Helmut Haake and now also contains the index of the latest edition of the Amiga Future.

The magazine index contains all article titles from the Amiga Future editions.
This makes it easier to find a specific article in over 20 years of Amiga Future.

In addition, the magazine index can also be used with the AFA Viewer for AmigaOS 4.

Firstly, to find out in which edition an article was published.

But you can also read the articles published on AFA-DVD directly with the AFA Viewer.
To do this, the AFA-DVD must be in the drive or installed on the hard disk.

It is also possible to partially access the files directly from the Amiga Future homepage.

Free download of the AFA Viewer: app.php/dlext/index?cat=78

Of course, Achim Pankalla would also appreciate feedback and ideas about the program.

Please note our advertising partners

On the Amiga Future webpage we offer you a huge free content all about the Amiga.

Because the Amiga Future is a non-profit project, the Amiga Future homepage has to finance itself completely.
The homepage, which is currently around 30 GB in size, is funded without exception through advertising, donations and our own private funds.
Programming new extensions, databases or features really costs a lot.

At the top of the webpage there are several banners from our advertising partners. We also have advertising in the left navigation bar.

Through these web partners we finance the server and programming costs of the Amiga Future webpage.

We would be happy if you pay attention to this advertising and that will ensure that there is still enough advertising on the Amiga Future webpage to finance it adequately.

However, you should ensure you own the following:

- An Amiga
- Fundamental knowledge of the Amiga
- Very good spelling in your native language (German or English!)

1. speak your native language (English) very well and submit correct spelling and grammar in written article(s).

Amiga Future Promotion: Sample issue for 1 cent

Many Amiga users still don't know of the Amiga Future magazine. Sadly, all the events and fairs where you could have met magazine staff and looked through an Amiga Future issue have been cancelled this year. That's why we decided to offer you some sample issues.

We want you to become familiar with the magazine and feel the benefits it has to offer, so we hope you will consider ordering a subscription to the Amiga Future magazine.

Anyway, you can order a sample issue of the Amiga Future from our online shop https://www.amigashop.org for only 1 cent plus shipping costs. We are sure you understand that we need to charge shipping costs, as we're a hobby publisher.

The sample issue is merely an older regular issue of the Amiga Future.

Via the URL https://www.amigashop.org/product_info. ... cts_id=321 you can choose to receive either the German or English sample issue.

We cannot estimate how great the interest might be in these sample issues, but in any case there is no time limit on this offer, but once the sample issues are no longer listed in the shop, all sold, then the campaign and being able to buy one of these samples, will end.

Here is a link to the information about the Amiga Future: app.php/info/

In any case you can find and read, for free, more than 100 issues of the Amiga Future online: app.php/kb/index

You can also find us on: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and there is also a free Android app. app.php/everywhere

Amiga Future: cheats database Update

The cheats database of Amiga Future is updated weekly by David Jahn, even if at first sight that is not immediately apparent.

The cheat database on the Amiga Future webpage is probably the largest German collection for the Amiga.

This doesn't just cover cheats, as many solutions, tips and tricks, as well as Freezer addresses can be found in the collection.

Don't forget you can find more than 3400 Games Cheats and solutions in the database, and there are always more being added.

The database is currently entirely in German, but if we receive enough donations for the website, we have plans to integrate a full-blown online database, which will also be available in English.
