folks,

i posted this over at amiga.org, but didn't get much response, so i thought i'd retell my thoughts here.... a few weeks ago i got my latest issue of amiga future magazine in the post, rather excited for the review of the new stormC editor from alinea. looked good, bought a copy, love it. but... in the screenshot used in the review there was some sourcecode that referenced an assign for "arteffect 5."

i didn't think much of it at the time, but then, i saw the following screenshot in a discussion thread over on support.amigaos.net which has an icon for, you guessed it, arteffect 5. and yesterday, while perusing through the amiga software database, i found this: a new entry for arteffect 5 with a release date of 2013.

so, is it really possible? after all of this time? we know stefan robl was working on a powerpc-native version of arteffect back in 2004-2005. there's still mention of it on his personal website.

what do you guys think? is it actually possible we'll see a new version of this excellent graphics package which hasn't seen a significant update since the H&P days? or am i just seeing what i want to see?

Hi, please not write about it ;)
There is not much to write ... As many know is ArtEffect 68k and the aim is to put it in a PPC native Version, but this is a long, long way. The icon+software has in the current state not much to do with a final AE5.

@eliyahu

The fact that Alinea have already published StormC5ED shows that they are currently serious about the IP they bought from H&P.

I'm quite impressed by the fact that they just quietly got on with it. Who'd heard of StormC5ED until the review in Amiga Future.

It also has an icon called "arteffect bugs"
