31.3.2003 gW3S goes open source
Carl Svensson: "I've decided to make gW3S an open-source project. A lot of people have been improving on the code of my Sharp release, but I'm no longer very interested in continuing the project myself, as part of the programming team. Therefor I hereby declare gW3S as OPEN SOURCE according to the gW3S OPEN SOURCE LICENSE - please take your time and read about this."

"We have decided to fork the gW3S distribution into two branches: The v1.x branch will continue to exist and will work on any base install of AmigaOS3.x with a TCP/IP stack. The v.2x branch will require some third-party software, but will also provide more functions. gW3S v2.0 is in it's final stages. Expect to see a release here some time soon (at least before the release of AmigaOS4 ;-)"

"This is just a minor maintenance release, just to show that I'm still alive. I've finally taken care of the awfully inaccurate slider, it should be much better now although not perfect (it may stop a little before the end). Also, for some streams, you will have to close the window yourself, AMP no longer quit automagically. This release uses some new audio routines I've developed. I hope they will work good in all cases, and if that's the case, there will be new releases of most of the emulators I'm porting using these audio routines."

24.3.2003 Poseidon USB Stack Update 2.0
Chris Hodges: "I've just uploaded the current work in progress version of Poseidon. Although the version number has been bumped to V2.0, it contains mostly bug fixes. Please don't be disappointed, if you would have expected more from this release. I've had a lot of things to do (e.g. writing the driver for the cool Algor board and the FlashRom tool for the Romulus/Algor) and then again, I'm only coding on my spare time.
Nevertheless, this is a free update for all registered and licenced users except for one. This "Rat" has to stick to the old version. Support is something bilateral.
People who had problems with their digital cameras using the CB or CBI transport protocol (remember, Class 8, Subclass x, Protocol 0 or 1) could try again with the new mass storage class. It might work. I've spent some days with the USB Floppy drive I've borrowed from a friend of mine and works with it.
Also, AutoMounting has been improved, so the manual mounting process required by a few devices/media should be worries of the past.
As usually, there are new binaries for MorphOS aswell (and if somebody missed the news, the Pegasos USB driver by VFD has been released into the public a week ago). Anyway, stay tuned, there is more to come. Enjoy the update."

23.3.2003 Cinemaware Statement
"Hopefully you know who we are as Cinemaware, as we are well known for our past Amiga games. We are of course doing new titles as well as you can see on our web-site www.cinemaware.com. We had also started a series of "Digitally Remastered" titles with clickBoom for a while - but unfortunately that has gone badly. [..]
We understand that some of classic Amiga/Cinemaware fans have been concerned about certain news spread around by clickBoom, the Canadian developer which Cinemaware has employed to develop the "Digitally Remastered" series of games. At this point Cinemaware would just like to make a simple statement that clickBoom's allegations are false and misleading, and that we will issue an official statement in the future regarding this matter.
In reference to this, Cinemaware would appreciate if anyone involved in the below cases come into contact with us as soon as possible, writing to cinemaware@cinemaware.com:

As you can see history tends to repeat itself.

In the meantime, we appreciate your support and understand your frustration at not being able to see more "Digital Remasters" coming out soon. We are working hard to resolve this situation. We are looking for expert Amiga/PC coders to continue the development of the series.
Please look out for exciting news regarding Robin Hood: Defender of the Crown soon!"

We will present new and known products from our palette together with our long-term partner GGS-Data. The scandinavian Amiga-community is very active and most notably creative, therefore we're especially looking forward to this event!
With a little luck, we'll have our latest product in our luggage: After an extremely long wait, the soundcard Delfina went into production. Nearly one year ago, we announced the last technical changes, that are already outdated today. The most important change is probably the split of the product into two boards. The updated product description confirms what many people already assumed since the Catweasel MK3 PCI/Flipper is out: The new Delfina is a combined Zorro/PCI card. The first stage of this high-end soundcard will be available in Germany starting April 7th, 2003. Pre-orders are taken by our retail partners.

Failed initialization revealed next two bugs related to resource freeing and causing a few Enforcer hits and a Guru as well. Current 6.4 TTEngine release has all three bugs fixed.

16.3.2003 SuperTV 0.8 BETA is available
A new version of SuperTV is now available. SuperTV is a replacement for Elboxes "TV" program, for Mediator users with TV cards. Download it from www.petergordon.org.uk. (Yes this is a new URL, so update your bookmarks).
Changes since v0.7.1 (inaccurately called 0.71 at the time):
- "hide pointer" now has 3 modes: Never, Fullscreen only, and Always. F2 now cycles between never and always.
- Added option to cycle through channels (ie hitting + at the last channel will cycle to channel 1).
- Two new arexx commands: TV_INCCHANNEL, TV_DECCHANNEL. These increment and decrement the channel, taking into account the cycle channels settings
- Added possibility to put in custom source number. This allows colour SVHS on some cards.
- I think i've zapped the enforcer hits now.
- You can now toggle fullscreen with F3

6.3.2003 Amiga Absence at CeBIT
"Late last year, Amiga announced its intention to launch AmigaOS4.0 at the CeBIT show in Germany. Since then, the project has advanced into its final stages but unfortunately not to the point where we are ready to ship. We have thus decided not to attend the Cebit Germany show. Instead we are looking at other shows and opportunities in the near future to provide a suitable platform for the launch of the new Amiga.
We apologize to the commmunity for waiting until the last possible moment to make this announcement but despite heroic efforts by all concerned, even up to the last minute, circumstances have conspired to push completion beyond the deadline. We have regretfully decided that making CeBIT Germany the AmigaOS 4 launch platform is not a realistic option at present.
AmigaOS4.0 is coming. Beta-testing has been going on since last September, the Club Amiga Magazine is previewing many of the new features and AmigaOne integration is proceeding well. Amiga, Hyperion and Eyetech are 100% committed to getting the new platform out into the world and reintroducing the world to the pleasures of home computing.

5.3.2003 Scala on your Workbench becomes reality with Hollywood & Malibu
Malibu is a plugin for Hollywood which contains an import filter for Scala presentations. As soon as Malibu is installed, Hollywood will suddenly be able to show Scala presentations or compile them. Many screenshots are now available from the Airsoft Softwair homepage.
With Malibu it is now possible for the first time to display Scala presentations on Workbench screen or on your own public screen. Because the whole emulation runs on top of Hollywood's multimedia application layer everything will be first converted to 24-bit and then displayed. In many cases the quality of the pictures that Malibu displays is much better than the original Scala quality because Scala often had to remap many pictures with very different colors to a 8-bit display which resulted in a massive loss of color information.
Malibu emulates nearly the whole Scala command set and supports all Scala versions up to Scala InfoChannel 500 which was the last Amiga version of Scala. Read more
The Malibu plugin will of course also be released for MorphOS and - as soon as available - AmigaOS4!
