There's a lot of fixes in there, folks, and my X5000 has never been this stable. A big thanks to the developers, beta testers, and especially Walkero, who pushed this update forward and handled all of the packaging work.

Now we just need to get that A1222 out of the door, and....

Cool, I hope they fixed Amiga Input, it has bugged me a lot.

I expected there to be something wrong with console, but never reported it because most of the time can have easily blamed myself for the instabilities. Cool to see they fixed something there.

@NutsAboutAmiga

They fixed some bits in Amiga Input (nothing radical, but still), but in console there were major bunch of fxes and improvements.

Check the changelog.guide coming with the update in the root folder , it 120kb of pure text data about fixes, updates and stuff in almost all (but not all) updated/fixed/new components. And for every component there is even not all changed noted. For example for DOS and for Kernel there were MUCH MORE changes which is added in changelog.

The work done by Colin Wenzel on DOS heart and all related components (ram-hadnler, appdir-handler, env-handler, bunch of dos commands) are really crazy in todays amiga time. Its just totaly absolutly unreal something is done of that sort (he works on it how much .. 5-6 more years, dunno).

The work done by Thomas Frieden on kernel is also somethng from other reality, as surprse he still here and works for amiga projects and that much time spend on (that probably still his main payment work, which in 2021 also surprise).

The work done by TonyW on Console for last years also remarkable.

The works done by Rigo (Simon Archer), Salas00 (Frederik), Andy Broad on the those shit-scary fixes in the classes, gadgets, other stuff are also should be noted.

And there is many other developers spend their tme on all components there and there.

That update2 is in whole amigaos4 history a first massive update of such size and quality. Its just for real can be called AmigaOS4.2 , or at least AmigaOS4.5 :) just wthout new icons :)

Wait what!! Wasn’t expecting this at all, plus the size of the update and fix’s.
Will test this out over the holidays thanks Hyperion and developers!

What the best way to make a back up of current setup? Just directory opus copy?
(Kind of not done it as I made a new partition last time for os4.1fe and kept 4.1.7 setup pretty much the state it was when amikit shipped it (plus maybe a year of updates and custom adding) and kind of use that as my backup, been so long since a big core update.

Big thanks if anything I only ask next time could the developers not release smaller update at say the end of each year so we know you guys are still working on os4. cheers

The world of Amiga is a strange place. Either things are announced five years in advance and not delivered, or else they spring out of nowhere overnight. There seems to be no middle ground. The second case is preferable, or course, since something actually gets delivered.

@amigang

By checking changelog.guide you can see how they working :) There werent much bananas because it was unclear wtf happens even inside, but lately things changes, and hope for some few good years futher.

But in any case, does not matte what will happens after, update2 is here, delivering a lot, and that is enough for next 2-3 years of playing with.

@bison

Yeah. That amiga, unlogical, strange, crazy, but still somehow uniq, small, fast, full controlled OS and co. Saying truth, 5 years ago i for real think that "this all retro". Now, seeing how windows10 on latest hardware with all this memory protection and stuff, give me bloat in face, download things without me knowing, task manager filling full of shit doing things, i not sure that i want OS with memory protecton and all "modern" stuff. For real, i better just reboot for 10-15 seconds, and continu after a crash, than will fight with this new crap.

But surely new blood will not understand it, as they born in times when all this "oldschool" way of doing things with computers are the same as for us some stuff from 30th :)

Blow me down with a feather just when you thought things in 2020 could not get any more bizarre.

Thanks for the continued support!

Good news, and good work!

I will update my AmigaOS4-Classic-Installation (Emulation) on my MacBookPro (till my Tabor arrives sometime in 2021).

This is certainly unexpected to say the least. I thought there won't be another update until Tabor is released in 2291, so it's a pleasant surprise. I hope someone will post the contents of changelog.guide somewhere, unless there's some confidential information here.

What the heck? Hyperion just released Update 2 for OS4.1 FE?! 2020 such a surprising year but thanks Hyperion for this totally unexpected update. A good reason to fire up my Pegasos II and my A4KD...


Cheers,
Dragster.

Not sure how much it of issue to publish change.log (that in end content of update), but will ask if no problems will post it here.

@Dragster
The platforms i tested update2 while betated were X5000 and my old trusty Pegasos2 (btw, lately i update my peg2 by sataide controllers, so use SSD on. It still noticable slower than x5000, but good enough for some tinkering with)

There is only one OS4 kernel, and it is Trevor Dickinson's.

I think the extra "Final" must have crept in there to signify that this is the final version of the Update 2 (as opposed to the multitude of alpha and beta packages we have been testing for tha past month or so). It should probably have been renamed before publishing. Then again, it's just a name.

Do not expect this to be the final OS 4 update. Unless of course you enjoyed the surprise so much that you want to be surprised again ...

Best regards,

Niels
