Krzysztof 'Deadwood' Śmiechowicz has released a new beta version of his AROS-port of the MorphOS-Web-Browser: Odyssey. The version from December 1st should fix the problem that the sound is no longer slightly delayed versus video.

Olaf Schönweiß` AROS/68k-distribution Aros Vision was updated to version 2.9.8, which mainly improves the user-interface (video).
The MUI-based Exutil which was written with Hollywood is a small utility to batch rename pictures by date sorted names based on Exif date information or by file's date.
As of yet this is a very simple tool - in future more functions may be added.
Changes in version 0.4:
While "Wings Remastered Edition" can be purchased at Steam for 15 Euro, the Amiga port costs 55 US-Dollar. But for this money, the game will be delivered in a big box including a printed manual ad a poster.
Ports for AmigaOS 4 with Warp 3D, AmigaOS 4 with RadeonHD-Compositing (for users without 3D-driver), MorphOS and AROS are available. Some graphics bugs which Müßener reduces to bugs in the graphic boards are already known:

In July 2012, the bonus of 6700 Euro for a port of Firefox for AmigaOS 4 was paid out to the Frieden brothers, although "Release Candidate 1" of their port of Firefox 4.0 named "Timberwolf" did not run smoothly. Two other updates have been provided, then the project seemed to have been put on hold.
According to a comment of Thomas Frieden on amigans.net, both software programmers decided to releases the complete source code of the project on Github. Although the files sporadicly include copyright notices, which expressly prohibit the transfer of the source code, according to Frieden the complete source code is under the Mozilla Public License. If you change it, you are asked to add it to the original Github archive. Please contact Thomas Frieden
We read this article on oddball open-source operating systems by [Bryan Lunduke] of the “Linux Action Show” podcast, and it caused us to play around in an Amiga-like operating system (running as a VM) for an hour. We’re pretty sure that you’ll succumb to the same fate. But even worse, the article is just the first in a series. There goes your weekend hacking productivity for the foreseeable future.
The "Free Play Station Emulator" (FPSE) now is available in version 0.10.5 for AmigaOS 3/4, MorphOS and AROS/x86. The plugin, which emulates joypads using the lowlevel.library, now can use two joysticks to emulate PSX-Joypads. Besides, a SDK for the development of the plugin is available.
Fruit'Y - Playing with edibles is heavily inspired by the Kaiko classic Gem'X, which has been seen on computers such as the Commodore Amiga 500, Commodore 64 and Atari ST.
Although tiger mum forbids little Sheran to play with edibles, there is simply no way to stop him from playing with fruits found inside the deep jungle. Being shiny, smelling wonderful and tasting even better Sheran can't be kept away. So let's do the best we could do: Support him!
The game consists of two boards of fruits. The left field belongs to Sheran who needs to reproduce the right field 1:1 being able to proceed to the next level. Sounds easy?!
In December 2014, Fredrik 'salass00' Wikstrom started working on implementing the FUSE-framework to AROS. It is a complete adaption of the filesysbox.library and not just a recompilation of the version for AmigaOS-4.
According to a statement, the due date (May 31st) cannot be achieved. So far $202 has been donated to the bounty. Krzysztof 'deadwood' Śmiechowicz has offered to double each donation until $500 has been reached.
