AROS Developer ALB42 has developed the first Torrent Client for AROS coded all in Free Pascal. We read from his blog: "I decided to call it ArTorr instead of ATorrent, 1st Atorrent is so long and boring 2nd its already taken for an Android Torrent client. ArTorr hmm sounds like a “Talk like a pirate” hommage.. ARRRRTor Its version 0.01 so very first alpha version."
Odamex is a free, cross-platform modification of the Doom engine, that combines the features of Boom with some additional enhancements: The widescreen format is supported, the mouse can be used ("mouselook") and the player can jump.
The port was provided by Szilárd 'BSzili' Biró. He wrote: "The update includes the new 32-bit renderer as well as an experimental server browser: ag-odalaunch. It has many issues (the file browser is horribly broken), but you shouldn't have problems connecting to servers. It uses my new pthreads implementation, which is still in its infancy, that can be another source of instability."

In Pascal Papara's indieGO!-store version 3.9.0a of his Linux-hosted AROS-distribution AEROS is available (video).
For a longe time, only ARM-devices were supported but this AEROS-update, based on the Linux distribution Knoppix, is meant for x86-PCs. Version 3.9.0a does not have to be installed because it is on USB/Flash-image.
laf Schönweiß has released version 2.7 of the AROS/68k-distribution AROS Vision which among others has updated ROM-files.
PictureAlbum is a picture browser/organiser that works differently to anything else I've seen - I find it to be much easier & quicker to use. It's hard to describe briefly, so just try it out or look at a screenshot.
While it has all the basic features that I consider "essential", there is certainly a lot more that could be added if I found the time...
You can download PictureAlbum from Aminet.
* First release which isn't a 'preview' (although little has changed).

Pascal Papara has released another version of his Linux-hosted AROS-distribution AEROS, for the Odroid-models U2 and U3.
It is available in his App-Store (nr. 88) - this weekend it is for free, from next week on it will cost 7 Euro. On the next weekend a free version is announced which, similar to the version for the Raspberry Pi, will not include the lx-command.
In version 2.6.1 of his AROS/68k-distribution AROS Vision, Olaf Schönweiß uses MUI 3.8 instead of the AROS-implementation Zune (screenshot). Additionally, the MMU libraries and components as well as some files for developers (e.g. Pascal and AmiLua) have been updated.
Please note that some of the preferences only work with Zune, mainly Locale and Input. If you want to change these preferences, you can copy the Zune-version of the muimaster.library to Libs: and afterwards return to the original version (all required libraries are in the directory Libs:MUI_Change).
It is also recommended to install the Installer 43.3 of Amiga Technologies in directory C:
