Amigaworld.net News   AmigaKit.com Back Online And Open For Sales!
  Amigaworld.net News posted by amigakit on 30-Apr-2016 16:17:01 (45 reads)
Unfortunately, due to an unexpected server hardware fault, the AmigaKit.com website was offline for nearly 40 hours. We are extremely pleased to announce that it is now open for business once again.

During this extended period, although we could not take online sales, existing orders continued to be processed and shipped using our internal backup systems. Please note that there will be a short period of time whilst order history data synchronises with the ordering system.

We would like to thank the many customers that showed great support and understanding through their email and telephone communications with us. We appreciate your good wishes during this difficult period of time.

We are very happy to be back online and looking forward to serving the community once again with Amiga hardware and software.

Software News   PortablE r6 beta released
  Software News posted by ChrisH on 27-Apr-2016 11:42:22 (534 reads)

PortablE is a recreation of the AmigaE programming language, along with all the improvements I wanted. PortablE works on AmigaOS4, AROS, MorphOS, and even Windows to an extent! (It should also work on AmigaOS3, but compiling needs a powerful machine like WinUAE.)

This is a small update, which improves (OS4) ReAction support, makes any generated MUI/ReAction 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 & ReAction 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.
* AmigaOS4: Added the 'intuition/menuclass' module, aka "AISS menus", and the example program "Examples/Amiga/OS4_ReAction/MenuClass.e".
* 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:

OS4Depot

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

Amigaworld.net News   New open source hardware from OnyxSoft
  Amigaworld.net News posted by Develin on 26-Apr-2016 23:31:49 (219 reads)
OnyxSoft releases open source hardware =)

JoyDivision

This adapter was created because we missed to be able to control my old games in emulators
with a real controller (Joysticks), just as they where inteded to be played =)
This adapter is created as a HID that doesn't requires any specific drivers (thanks to V-USB which is used).
That means that you just need to plug it in, configure your emulator to use the HID-device and start playing!

One other nifty thing we added to it (also from V-USB package) is that this unit contains a special bootloader
which enables the user to update/replace the firmware without having a special programmer, only a USB-port and
use a software called HIDBootFlash (read more about this procedure below).

Having this bootloader enabled means that one can change the firmware to it's own needs.
We plan to add firmware for other input devices (like Amiga and Atari mices etc.)

The archive contains source code (firmware and bootloader), Schematics, BOM and EAGLE-files.

We also shared the PCB-layout (if someone want to build it themself) at OSH Park :
https://oshpark.com/shared_projects/eoh7Ay5p


ps. we can create adapters for anyone who cannot make it themselfs ofcourse (for a small sum) but consider the first batch
of 20 units went of to users within one day we need to organize it a little and therefor there can be a little wait until
a bigger new batch to be ready. but if you want one, declare your interest at following email :  joydivision@onyxsoft.se

Announcement   Enhanced Amiga 1200 case seeks crowd-funding on Indiegogo
  Announcement posted by Petah on 24-Apr-2016 10:35:20 (443 reads)
Craving for a brand new Amiga 1200 case? Longing for Individual Computers' upcoming Amiga Reloaded, and want it to have a proper home? Need a new case for your Raspberry Pi or your ITX form factor motherboard? In either "case", AMIGA CASE: The Ultimate Retro Style Computer Case has you covered.

Launched on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo by Jarno Smit a few days ago, the project aims to not only recreate Commodore's Amiga 1200 case, but also improve on its original design.

Available in two different styles, campaign backers can choose to get a case with holes for an Amiga 1200 keyboard (currently €59) or a case without any keyboard (currently €64) holes at all, meant to be used with an external keyboard. In addition to pledging for the case itself, backers can choose to pay an extra €1 for a redemption code for the Amiga Reloaded. The code guarantees the user to be able to pre-order the Amiga 1200 Reloaded, which is expected to sell out immediately after the first batch will be made available by Indvidial Computers later this year.
