AROS running on Vampire, and S-AGA going open-source!
With the Vampire accelerator boards out and in mass production, and AROS gaining momentum on m68k, it has been announced that the Apollo/Vampire team will open-source their S-AGA enhanced Amiga-compatible chipset!

Yes, it looks like it's finally happening. A new Amiga. :-)

ShapeShifter (Apple Macintosh 68k emulator) source code has been released to AmiNet!
It's 100% assembler code, thus of limited relevance for AROS, but still a nice addition - big thanks to Christian Bauer for creating ShapeShifter, and releasing the sources!

PortablE r6 beta released
Original Image
PortablE is a recreation of the AmigaE programming language, along with all the improvements I wanted.

This is a small update, which makes any generated MUI code human-readable, and fixes a few bugs.

Previous versions of PortablE were aimed at existing AmigaE users, but PortablE now aims to be attractive for new users too. Although it's still "beta", it should work well, and further incompatible changes seem unlikely.

See the main manual for everything that has changed since r5. There have been the following big changes since the last beta:
* Built-in procedures can now support unlimited parameters (although only some have been updated to use this ability).
* Improved MUI modules to use procedures with unlimited parameters (instead of immedate tag lists). So the C/C++ code generated for GUIs is now human-readable!
* Added the NoListOptim switch, so that the code generated for Immediate Lists can be more human-readable.
* When a bug exception was thrown during compilation, it could give the wrong message. Now fixed.
* Fixed a few module bugs.

You can download it from here:

PortablE comes with documentation, but you can find on-line documentation, examples & the latest version of PortablE from it's homepage:

PortablE r6 beta released
Original Image
PortablE is a recreation of the AmigaE programming language, along with all the improvements I wanted. PortablE works on AROS, MOS, OS4, and even Windows to an extent! (It should also work on OS3, but compiling needs a powerful machine like WinUAE.)

EmuLa v1.4 available for download!
Hello all,
I'm glad to announce that the first public release of EmuLa is available for AROS i386.

EmuLa features an unique approach to roms recognition based on the file crc: this method allows EmuLa to be extremely precise in rom recognition, this way the user is never asked to resolve ambiguities.
