Events   Next FCUG meeting - Sunday, May 24
  Events posted by RobertB on 22-May-2015 7:52:23 (175 reads)
Happy 3-day weekend, C= and Ami aficionados!

The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2+ p.m., Sunday, May 24 at --

Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
Fresno, California

Once again we'll discuss the July 18-19 Commodore Vegas Expo, now with the addition of special guests Leonard Tramiel, son of CBM's Jack Tramiel; and Mike Battilana of Cloanto's C64 Forever and Amiga Forever. Also we'll discuss last weekend's Maker Faire 2015 and the July 25-26 Amiga 30th Anniversary celebration in California. I'll provide a brief report on Commodore and Amiga at Maker Faire, along with pictures and a short video.

For the third month in a row, we continue our celebration of the 30th anniversary of the C128. We'll look at some C128 and C64 video from the classic Computer Chronicles television show. Then we'll look through Basic 8 and IPaint C128 graphics, courtesy of the GEnie Commodore File Library at CBMFiles.com. Not forgetting Geopaint 128 graphics, we'll boot up Geopaint 128 to look at its abilities.

In other business, we'll listen to MP3 music streaming from the MP3@C64 module on the MMC64 cartridge. We'll play with the Amiga CDTV and games Wrath of the Demon, Lemmings, and Defender of the Crown II. Member Vincent will bring his VIC-20, and I'll bring Peter Hanson's expanded Plus/4 again.

Commodore life is good,
Robert Bernardo

Software News   WarpJPEG.datatype 45.12 - now with AltiVec speed boost
  Software News posted by Futaura on 15-May-2015 15:25:45 (982 reads)
A new faster version of WarpJPEG and associated WarpDTPrefs has been released, bringing AltiVec speed optimisations to AmigaOS 4.x and MorphOS users, making JPEG decoding at least 1.5x faster than before, along with several other improvements for WarpOS and AmigaOS 3.x also. You may be aware that I originally wrote the jpeg.datatype supplied with AmigaOS 4.x, but now WarpJPEG outperforms it by some considerable margin.

Full list of changes:

* Added AltiVec speed optimizations for the OS4 and MorphOS versions
making decoding speed of baseline images 1.5x faster on a G4 and
1.9x faster on a PA6T, with fancy upsampling off, on average.
With fancy upsampling on, the AltiVec speed gain is even greater -
1.9x faster on a G4 and 2.3x faster on a PA6T. These optimizations
can be toggled off/on using the new USE_ALTIVEC setting.

* Huffman decoder in PowerPC versions is now 5-10% faster.

* Reintegrated higher quality fancy upsampling smoothing feature from
IJG jpeglib v6b which had not been present since WarpJPEG 45.5 due
to its removal from IJG jpeglib v7 and higher.

* MorphOS and WarpOS versions recompiled with VBCC 0.9d.

* Added new set of benchmarks for OS4 (benchmark updates for other
platforms suspended until my A1200 motherboard has been repaired).

Amigaworld.net News   Public Release of MorphOS 3.8 Featuring Sam460 Support
  Amigaworld.net News posted by ASiegel on 15-May-2015 11:55:23 (3954 reads)
The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the public release of MorphOS 3.8, which introduces support for ACube´s Sam460 series of mainboards and numerous Radeon graphics cards from AMD´s X1000 and HD series. In addition to various performance improvements related to the Quark kernel, Exec, 3D graphics and video playback, MorphOS 3.8 also adds the ability to use state-of-the-art 4K displays in their native resolution. For a more extensive overview of the included changes, please read our release notes.

As usual, existing MorphOS users can update to the latest release entirely for free. Sam460 owners who are interested to register MorphOS for their system will be able to do so for 49 EUR.

We strongly urge new users to carefully read our installation and troubleshooting guides before they attempt to install MorphOS for the first time. Existing users can upgrade via the familiar procedure but are encouraged to read the guides as well. MorphOS 3.8 is available for download in our files section.

software OS4   AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition ISO images for download
  software OS4 posted by Cyborg on 14-May-2015 15:08:34 (2197 reads)
Brussels, May 14, 2015

We at Hyperion Entertainment CVBA are more than thrilled about the overwhelming success our customers made out of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition! Thank you!

Actually the success is so great, causing especially the supply of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition for Classic to dry up during the last weeks and some of your preferred dealers even ran out of stock already, which is of course unacceptable!
