AMiGA Info


Access the latest news, product announcements, press releases, and events from the Amiga International, Inc. or Amiga or amiga.net homepages.

April 200 - Things in the Amiga world continue and are as interesting as ever.

December 2004 - AmigaOS4 native software is being released or updated almost daily. Merry Christmas and a Great 2005 to all for AmigaOS and Amiga hardware.

February 2004 - AmigaOS4 is now in betatesting and will soon be available to those with earlybird AmigaOne's. New screenshots abound at the Official AmigaOS Portal website. The AmiMozilla project now has almost $8700.00 in the reward. iBrowse2.4 is ever near, but part of the team is also working on AmigaOS4 thus a slight delay.

May/June 2003 - AmiZilla is an effort to get Mozilla ported to the Amiga by offering a money reward to the first person/team to successfully port Mozilla to the AmigaOS. As of early June 2003 over $4000 is in the booty with money donations continually being collected. CHECK IT OUT! Official OS4 Screenshots from Hyperion showing the default OS4 look. OS4 and AmigaONE on Tour 2003 see it live at the AUGS club in Basel, Switzerland in late June. OS4 on Tour 2003 will also be at the AmiGBG show in Gothenburg, Sweden at the end of June. Hyperion will be showing the latest OS4 beta on PPC hardware.

April 2003 - YAM (Yet Another Mailer) 2.4 was released this month. New features include hierarchical folders list, SMTP & POP3 TLS1/SSL3 support for stunnel servers, more powerful recipient "on the fly" string gadgets, e-mail address cache, extended mailto: links support, search function in write window, extended documentation, etc. The file manager DiskMaster v2.5RC10 was released with file paths support longer than 256 characters in anticipation of this OS4 feature and various bugfixes. AmigaOne SE and XE systems continue to be delivered to dealers and directly to end users. AmigaOS 4.0 still in beta testing. AlphaBase database full registered version and sources released to public for free. If you would like to further develop AlphaBase contact Olaf Kbnik for assistance. Other new software/updates released: AHI v5.5 RC1, PerfectPaint 2.925, A/NES CGFX 1.32 w/P96 support, MicroBase5.02, EvenMore 0.61 and more.

March 2003 - A new version of AmigAIM released (seperate internal rewrite still under development). AmigaOneG4-XE systems not released yet but expected to ship the later half of March with improved bootmenu and better memory handling. AmigaOS4 still in beta. Eyetech have announced work on a faster CPU module upgrade (probably G4@1.3GHz) for the AmigaOneG4-XE systems to be available later in the year for power users and biz.

February 2003 - iBrowse2.3 released! A new distributor IOSPIRIT will handle upgrades and new sales. Vastly improved javascript means more websites work than previously. Work on iBrowse2.4 is announced as an update to fix minor bugs found after the public release of 2.3 and to get the plugin API functional. Next major update will be iBrowse3.0 with CSS and DOM support.

December 2002 - Eyetech released and shipped to dealers and end users the earlybird AmigaOneG3-SE mobos and systems as promised before Christmas. The G4-XE systems were delayed because delivery of G4 cpus could not be guaranteed for delivery on the date Eyetech had requested. The AmigaOneG4-XE mobos and systems will ship late January 2003 and will come with the new revision of the Articia chip that was recently released. OS4.0 is in beta and as yet unreleased. Multiple processor support has been promised for the OS4.x series.

November 2002 - Eyetech and Amiga seperately make announcements for November. Eyetech are now offering for sale AmigaOneG3-SE models at 600MHz as well as AmigaOne-XE systems with a G4 cpu at 800MHz. They also say that early in 2003 they will offer the XE model in a G3 700MHz version. The defining difference between the SE and the XE models is that XE has a CPU socket while the SE does not. These "Earlybird" systems will ship before Christmas 2002. Systems will ship with LinuxPPC and UAE, and you will get OS4 for FREE if you order before Dec 31st 2002 OR OS4 ships, whichever comes first. The Eyetech link above gives all the details, plus a comparison chart between G3-SE, XE G4-800, and XE G3-700. Amiga announce new releases of "Amiga Games Pocket Paks Volumes 1 and 2" available around Thanksgiving for both the Pocket PC and Pocket Pc Phone Edition devices (Sendo and Orange). Each Pocket Pak contains 4 games and Amiga says they have two more Paks coming soon. A big boost is that these Paks will be available through several retailers in the USA including CompUSA and mmO2 retail locations in England. In other news iBrowse2.3 should be released at anytime.

August 2002 - Amiga Inc have released an update on and a webpage for Amiga OS4 Features. FroggerNG 2.0 betas are out with support for many previously unsupported video codecs for AmigaOS. Around 1000 people participated in the AmigaOne/AmigaOS4 $50 off coupon sale. AmigaOS4 will have a venerable market for developers from the beginning and can only grow.

June 2002 - Amiga Inc have a early promotion on AmigaOne/AmigaOS4.0 sales with a chance to win an AmigaOne with AmigaOS4.0. Pay $50 for a chance in the draw which counts $50 towards your purchase of an AmigaOne/AmigaOS4.0 plus you get a T-shirt too! The promotion ends July 7, 2002. Read about it here. The more people who enter the more AmigaOne/AmigaOS4.0 combos will be given away. Read about it plus more news from Amiga Inc this month such as Amithlon2.0 to be released for OS3.9 emulation fans! Also more info on redeeming the Party Pack coupons and why 2 products; AmigaDE and Amiga-Anywhere.

May 2002 - A lot has happened in the past two monthes. AmigaOS4 is getting near. Amiga Inc have made a subdomain on the amiga.com site specifically for AmigaOS at the link http://os.amiga.com, with http://os.amiga.com/os4 specifically for the new AmigaOS4. Check out the OS4 pages. There are several screenshots of the OS4 GUI, OS4 menu system, and OS4 HDToolBox replacement. As OS4 nears shipping there will be many more screenshots from the new OS. AmigaDE has undergone a name change to better suit its concept and is now referred to as Amiga Anywhere with appropriate new domain names. A special version of Amiga Anywhere was released for MiscrosoftCE devices along with a game pack. In Eyetech's latest update they state that AmigaOneG3-SE boards for developers and betatesters are out in the field NOW. They also revealed tidbits of future AmigaOne motherboards with socketed CPUs upgradeable with G3/G4 and possibly G5 processors and a trade-in deal for your AmigaOneG3-SE board as an incentive for buyers to not wait for the future boards. Buy now and you will have a guaranteed trade-in price against the new boards. It will be several months before the new boards will ship so why wait. Details are available at AmigaOne Update.

March 2002 - Fleecy Moss posted on the AmigaOne mailing list on Yahoo!Groups that he had visited Eyetech's Alan Redhouse at home and saw an AmigaOne mobo hooked up and running LinuxPPC flawlessly and stable. The AmigaOne is ready for production and now the wait is on for AmigaOS 4.0 to be finalized from Hyperion. Eyetech are taking orders for the new AmigaOneG3-SE until Sunday March 24th for discounted developer/dealer/OS4 beta-tester boards/systems. These boards will have soldered on G3 processors at 600Mhz. The main production run of boards for consumers will be timed for release in May 2002 at the same time as OS4 is ready. Once AmigaOS and/or applications make use of Altivec G4 versions may be offered, but do not wait for a G4 since the success of the G3 mobo will directly influence whether a G4 is considered for a future board.

NEW - Boing-Bag #2 for OS3.9 is RELEASED!

February 2002 - Hyperion in an IRC Q&A state OS4 beta to be sent to betatesters in March with a consumer release a few weeks later along with a lot more info about OS4 developments. Eyetech show a working pruduction-ready AmigaONE motherboard at the ALT WOA show in the UK with better specs than listed on their website. Amiga's Bill McEwen announces their set-top box partner is Nokia.

January 2002 - Okay, so Amiga/Eyetech missed the promised November release dates for AmigaOS4.0 and the AmigaOne hardware. Amiga ran on short funding this summer which caused the delay, however, Amiga x86 (Amithlon/AmigaOs XL) and the AmigaDE player did ship (Windows and Linux versions) and The AmigaDE Shop launched where you can purchase which version of the Player you want and a growing assortment of games for it as well with other apps besides games coming soon. You can also rate what you buy and comment about it. I've heard about a USB controller recently released for Amiga computers. I've added the links in the Misc Hardware Links.

October 2001 - Amiga released the AmigaDE Player 1.0 for Windows and Linux the week of October 22nd, 2001. Versions of the Player are in development for PocketPC, EPOC, Palm, WinCE, and other systems to be released in the coming months. AmigaOS 4.0 PPC, Amiga x86 (run Amiga OS3.9 via emulation without Windows directly from PC hardware at bootup), AmigaDE 1.0, and AmigaOne PPC hardware due for release next month! ImageFX4.5 was recently released.

April 2001 - The Amiga2001 Show was a success with some major announcements from Amiga. A major surprise was the announcement that AmigaOS 4.0 PPC with 68k emulator will become reality later this summer. Amiga have decided to actively develop AmigaOS further and merge it later with the AmigaDE for their server class product line. OS4.0 will work only on zico spec machines which means it will require an AmigaOne1200 motherboard/card from Eyetech, or bPlan Pegasos motherboard. Elbox claim their SharkPPC plus PCI card will run OS4 also. Amiga laid out a basic roadmap for future development. OS4.2 and OS4.5 will come out at 6 month intervals with OS4.2 out before the end of this year according to Bill McEwen. OS5.0 should be out by late next year. AmigaOS will get Virtual Memory and Memory Protection, new 2d and 3D APIs, and sound. We get JAVA by default when the DE is running on AmigaOS (4.2). I won't go through all the details. A great site to read is Amiga Directions.

March 2001 - The Amiga2001 Show sponsored by the Gateway Computer Club in St. Louis, MO, is coming up March 30th through April 1st. Amiga Inc will be there and promise some exciting announcements.

February 2001 - First updates for Amiga OS 3.9 are available now but this is NOT a Boing Bag. It consists of updated locales for 20 languages and updated GenesisPrefs based on ReAction. SharkPPC cards are said to be on schedule.

January 2001 - Boing-Bag2 for Amiga OS 3.5 is released. The SharkPPC accelerator from Elbox is expected for release in February. It adds a G3/G4 processor to your A1200/A3000/A4000 which requires a MEDIATOR PCI card to plug into.

December 2000 - Amiga OS 3.9 shipped on Dec 4th! The latest incarnation of the original Amiga OS has bugfixes, new features, and a few shareware programs licensed to increase the value and usability of Amiga OS out of the box (a long standing tradition of Amiga OS without which AmigaBASIC, speech, AREXX, CrossDOS, etc., wouldn't have been available as part of the standard distribution). H&P have a more comprehensive set of Amiga OS 3.9 pages along with registration services and support area. Sales of 3.9 WILL directly affect whether or not Amiga Inc allow H&P to produce Amiga OS 4.0 PPC so if you want to see this DO NOT pirate 3.9, REPORT pirates, BUY it, tell your Amiga friends, and let's see more development on the classic OS! :-)

November 2000 - Amiga OS 3.9 announced and will ship early in December! Also BB2 is still coming with bug fixes only. The Amiga SDK 1.01 for Windows and Linux has been released for those interested to learning the new AmigaDE (Digital Environment). YAM2.2 released and now open source under the GNU License. Eyetech are making new expansion cards (AmigaOne 1200 and AmigaOne 4000) to turn the 1200/4000 models into AmigaOne class machines capable of running the new AmigaDE (due in 2001). FinalWriter and the "Final" line of products may see new revisions for both AmigaOS and the new AmigaDE.

October 2000 - A new, updated version of the Amiga SDK is due anytime. The new version will work under Windows. At the same time an update of the SDK for Linux will be released (a free update if you own the Amiga SDK 1.0 for Linux) to keep the two versions of the SDK in sync. Amiga Inc have been busy with many new partnerships over the past couple months. The Amiga Support Network has 3rd party software and CVS snapshots for the new Amiga OE downloadable for those that have the SDK environment (70 as of Sept 29th). Amiga have a new information page answering "What is Amiga all about?" This is the beginning of some public self promotion. Some new PCI bridge cards are in the works from a couple of Amiga companies with one promising a PPC add-on daughter card. H&P acquire publishing rights for STFax and Genesis TCP/IP, and release AmigaWriter 2.2 and ArtEffect 4.0. BoingBag2 is near, but no promises for a release date. MorphOS, a new PPC kernal based on PowerUP released with a few freeware/share apps released so far.. it disables 68k CPU and runs 68k apps in emulation and has no WarpUP support. Check the news sites for the lastest news and details.

June 2000 - Amiga Inc releases the Amiga SDK for the new Operating Environment. YAM 2.1 email client released. A lot of things are happening out there. Read the news sites! :-) BUY AMIGA OS 3.5!!!!! Boing Bag #2 still in development.

May 2000 - Still no news on OS3.5 BoingBag2, but H&P have been very busy with their productline with AmigaWriter 2.0 (word processor) and ArtEffect 4.0 (image processing and paint) due for release this month; StormC 4.0 C/C++ compiler is near, and the PPC kernal WarpOS 5.0. Other news - ParaGlide - 3D Module for Picasso IV due soon as well. Amiga have started an open developers mailing list for developers and gfx artists who wish to program or do gfx for programmers for the new Amiga platform only. Amiga Inc have also set up an official OS3.5 Support mailing list.

April 2000 - No new news on OS3.5 BoingBag2 yet. The Amiga webpage and mirrors are undergoing format changes. The new Amiga slogan is "That the World May Know." You'll see it a lot. It's already on the back cover of the April issue of AmigActive magazine. To read my show report from the Amiga 2k show in St. Louis click here. On the browser front iBrowse2.2 and Voyager3.1 are released. Both now support the FONT FACE tag, but only Voyager has a Shockwave Flash and PDF plugins. A Shockwave Flash plugin for iBrowse is in development as well as some other plugins.

March 2000 - BoingBag2 isn't out but the new March Amiga Excutive Update is a nice read. A new Amiga developer system will be given away April 1st at the Amiga 2k in St. Louis and you can meet and talk to the Amiga team there. The first Amiga DevCon will also be hosted at the show. Some new partnerships are revealed: Haage & Partner to provide APIs of the new AmigaOS to the "classic" OS, Porting all H&P products to the new Amiga, a new version of WarpOS (PPC kernal) that will run the new Amiga OS on PPC cards in our current Amigas! - Hyperion to port existing and new games to the Amiga - and Epic Marketing to port their existing and future games to the new system. The Amiga Dealer Network has been created and the AAC restarted. They've also hired many new people and been training with TAO. More partnerships will be revealed at the show. Amiga are also moving to a new location in mid-March, and the address and phone numbers have been updated below in the Amiga History section. They appear to have dropped the "Corporation" part of their name and now use "Incorporated."

February 2000 - Amiga OS3.5 BoingBag2 "might" be read by the end of this month. If you haven't bought OS3.5 you should! Over 12,000 copies sold so far (17,000?). Amiga gave H&P permission to continue developing the AmigaOS 3.6-4.0 etc and port it to PPC. Amiga will concentrate on the new Amiga OS with foundation partner Tao. Don't give up on your ole Amiga now. If the new OS materializes and prospers your old Amiga isn't going to stop working and your "classic" software will probably work under the new systems as well if all goes as planned.

January 2000 - Amino merges with Amiga becoming Amiga Corporation. Amiga announces a partnership with Tao-Group.

December 1999 - BUY your copy of Amiga OS3.5 now. It really is worth it. "Boing Bag #1" for registered owners of OS3.5 came out on Christmas Eve! It consists of bugfixes to the new OS and extensions such as animated icons! Don't forget to register OS3.5 :) A PPC native version of the real AmigaOS might be a possibility in 2000. Voyager3.0 final released late December. Gateway sells Amiga division to Amino Development Corp for $5-Million USD.

November 1999 - Phase5 PPC G4 cards delayed (may get AGP support). AmigaOS3.5 CD may sellout from the preorders requiring a new CD pressing! (That is a GoodThing(TM)). www.amiga.net is now online and mirrors the amiga.de and amiga.com websites.

October 1999 - Amiga OS 3.5 is RELEASED and SHIPPING!!! Also AWeb 3.3 was released :)

September 1999 - Amiga OS 3.5 delayed until early October, but a special prerelease version was given out to a lucky few (50?) at the Australian show. Phase5 dropped the G3 cards, and are going totally G4! Cards are due soon. iBrowse2.1 was finally released in early Septemeber. Amiga lost Jim Collas as president and the next-gen Amiga box (MCC) is cancelled, but third parties are welcome to use the reference design to produce Amiga motherboards.

July 1999 - Amiga OS 3.5 to be released August 24th at the Downunder Amiga show in Australia. Amiga Inc changes mind about QNX and chooses the Linux kernal for the Next Gen OS kernal... this is bound to be interesting. Phase5 G3 cards w/ 2 USB ports due in September, and a new CyberVisionNG card is planned with specs of 2D/3D graphics chip 128bit 3D, max res 1920x1200x32 @72Hz, and full video acceleration to support full-screen, full-frame DVD playback with pricing of US$ 190 w/32MB RAM. Support OS 3.5 so we can have an improved OS3.6+ and let Amiga/Haage&Hartner know what you want improved in our "Classic" OS:)

June 1999 - Amiga OS 3.5 beta is shipping to beta testers NOW! Due for public release in August. Worldwide preorders for Amiga OS 3.5 are being taken now if you want to be the first on your block to receive it. Phase5 PPC G3/G4 cards expected to ship Sept/Oct.

April 1999 - PowerPC G3 & G4 accelerator cards without 68k CPUs onboard appear to be the new trend in Amiga accelerator cards. Currently 4 manufacturers are planning to make cards based on the PPC G3 or G4 processors with various expansions on-board. Looks like PPC cards will be as abundant as 060 cards in the near future with speeds starting at 300mHz for low end models! The 68k will be fully emulated with Haage & Partner's 68k emulator with their WarpOS kernal as the chosen PPC kernal, though Phase5's PowerUP kernal may not be dead for their G3/G4 card.

March 1999 - Amiga Inc's web site now appears to be a complete mirror of Amiga International Inc's web site instead of a seperate web site as it has been since it came online last year. Amiga OS3.5 may not be the last OS for the "Classic" line. Support OS3.5 and 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 3.9, even 4.0 are possible! Buy it and show your support!

AMiGA Software Links

The Amiga may not have all the "big name" software behind it, but it has a nice selection of internet, productivity, and entertainment software available both commercial and shareware and freeware. In the following space are excellent software by category. If you know of more please tell me. Most of the software below requires AmigaOS2 or higher. Everyone should now be using OS3.9 anyways, and OS3.9 requires the 3.1 ROM to work. Come on, OS3.1 is itself OLD! Why use anything even OLDER...? (Okay maybe for old software compatibility, but do yourself and the Amiga developers a favor and support NEW software.) Ok, enough of that ranting. Where possible there are links to the homepage of the software or a direct link to download it from Aminet at Wustl or Aminet at Uni-Paderborne, if no homepage is known. More software and links will be listed as I find time and receive suggestions. This list is by NO MEANS a complete listing of each catagory of software. Browsed through a complete Aminet mirror lately.. and that's just the freeware/shareware stuff.


I've classified the software as commercial, shareware, freeware, giftware, etc, if I have the classification wrong please let me know and it will be changed ASAP. Specific details are listed after the product name. PPC support is listed when known. Originally I intended to only list actively developed products, now I have included some that are no longer developed. If you want to support active developers then buy products that are still developed.
