Amiga Future

Author: AndreasM


On the Amiga32 also the current development status of the upcoming MorphOS 3.10 was shown.
Since the release of the MorphOS Software Development Kit 3.10 in June 2016, there have been some changes in the development team. Afterwards, many advances of the upcoming version 3.10 were rejected and partially completely revised or even replaced.

The version presented on the Amiga32 was already very advanced and showed a new modern interface, which was very well received by the trade fair visitors. MorphOS 3.10 will come with a new calendaring feature, an onscreen keyboard, and countless improvements and bug fixes.

A USB audio mixing console on an AmigaOne X5000 with MorphOS was also demonstrated. The operating system ran on a Amiga 4000 and Amiga 1200, both equipped with (no longer commercially available) PPC cards.

Guido Mersmann did not want to name a fixed release date on demand, but it should not take much longer.

Amiga Future

Author: AndreasM


Rather inconspicuous was the exhibition stand of Hyperion Entertainment.
But exciting news were announced at the Amiga32.
Probably they are working since some months behind closed doors on an update for the Workbench 3.1. in the development of the operating system for classic Amiga rests with Thomas Richter and Olaf Barthel.


The announced innovations include, for example:
- FastFileSystem with native 64-Bit support (NSD, TD64, DirectSCSI), etc.
- CrossDos with native 64-Bit support (NSD, TD64, DirectSCSI), new mfm.device
- Support for big size storage media, as well resizing of partitions
- Format, DiskCopy and HDToolBox with native 64 Bit support
- Support for long filenames
- Math Librarys with automatic FPU detection
- Improved and extended shell
- Improvements and fixes for SetPatch, Workbench, Installer, audio.device, scsi.device, etc.

The work is not finished yet. forther information will follow later.



Forthermore we were able to have a first look at IBrowse 2.5 at the exhibition stand of Hyperion.
After many years of stagnation, the odds seem to be good that the web browser will soon be officially available again.

The innovations compared to the previous version 2.4 should u.a. be the following:

- Native version for AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition next to AmigaOS 3.x)
- support for AmiSSL v4
- support for MUI 3.8, 3.9 (recommended minimum), 4.0 and 5.0
- Improved display of alpha channel images on> 15-bit screens
- Download files with more than 2 GB (AmigaOS 4)
- support for OpenSearch
- Improved engines for JavaScript, HTML, HTTP
- Cookie support
- Improvements to Password Manager, Image Decoder, Storage Management

The announcement includes many more improvements and bug fixes.

A release date is not known yet.

Amiga Future: cheats database Update

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

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

This is not just about cheats. Many solutions, tips and tricks, as well as Freezer addresses can be found in this collection.

Meanwhile you can find more as 3400 Games Cheats and solutions in the database, and there is always more.

The database is currently completely in German. If we receive enough donations for the website, we have planned to integrate a proper online database, which will also be available in English.

The new Crash Course to Hollywood Programming tutorial gives you some understanding of Hollywood programming, and it should be easier to learn more about the language by yourself then. Hollywood is an easy, safe, and very well documented language, and thus also suitable for beginners.

The tutorial is available at the MorphOS Library and it covers topics from the basics to MUI programming through examples.
