Firefox port: Source code of Timberwolf releasedPrint

Announcement

TFIn 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

AROS on HackadayPrint

News

HADWe 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.

AmigaOS 4 / AROS / MorphOS: Fruit'Y 1.0Print

Games

fruityFruit'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?!

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.

AROS Vision 2.9.3 RTGPrint

AROS

avisionMajor changes in version 2.9.3 in Olaf Schönweiß's AROS/68k distribution Aros Vision RTG are that MESA/Gallium is activated by default and that it uses Zune instead of MUI (MUI can be activated if necessary).

MESA/Gallum needs 256 MB RAM, works only with more than 16 Bit colour depth. It is still slow but it works. The maintainer hopes this will motivate 68k developers to help with further work. Since Zune is now used as standard, more and more AROS applications can be integrated in future.

Changes:

  • All system files updated
  • Zune and MESA/Gallium activated
  • Netsurf updated (much faster)
  • Themes added
  • Development (GCC) updated
  • Most files from contrib/ports (Aros) integrated
  • ZuneView added
  • OWB (old AROS port) works again
  • FlashMandelNG added
  • Free Pascal updated (to version 3.1)
  • AmiBlitz updated (newest snapshot)
  • WHDLoad updated
