I've been having a really busy week updating the OS4Depot website recently. There's a brand new service plus some new features on the site.

New Service! SourceDepot

This is intended to be a center for all kinds of source code that could be ported or have been ported to AmigaOS4. If you have some sources for a program you want ported or for something you don't have time supporting any more, then publish it on SourceDepot. Or if you simply wants to make your work open source then your welcome to publish it as well. It's not intended for mammoth stuff like the mozilla source code or Open Office. Though I might add a link publishing feature in the future for big projects like that.

New OS4Depot features

- I've added a download statistics page on the main site. It shows the montly download attempts on files. Look here for an example.

- It's now easier to replace an earlier version of your uploaded archive. Just go to the readme page of your file and press "Replace". The readme page can be reached by pressing the little odd character to the left of a file description in any file list.

- New info page where you can find useful information about the site, including a set of banners that you can use on your website to link to OS4Depot. If you want to create a new banner for us and publish it on that page then you're more than welcome to do so. Just upload it via the submit page.

Aminet and AmigaShare cross uploading

For quite some time I've been unable to upload anything to both Aminet and AmigaShare but all files are kept in the upload queue until those websites are up again.

Thanks all!
I'd like to thank everyone that has uploaded files to OS4Depot. It's you who are making the site into a success! We recently reached the 100 file landmark thanks to you all and hopefully we'll reach 200 easely once the prerelease update is out.

And also thanks everyone who has sent in suggestions and helped me test the site while I've been updating it.

Ummmm.... A bounty on ports perhaps?

Also, people could be dumping all sorts of crap on there that no-one wants. Not only that, but if code was dumped there wouldn't it fall behind the OSS project? You absolutely need the link, and one would argue that is all you need.

Great work!

If this kind od momentum continues, over the years the world of Amiga may just become a force to be reckoned with.

Not all code are related to a web page. Perhaps someone has an old 3.x telnet client(or something) they want to share the source for. It could be anything. For now if there's a link to a OS project that someone wants to share then just upload a text file with a descripitive filename and set the URL field on the submit page. Just as OS4Depot the functionality of the site will be a moving target. I do not intend to make it a project page though, but rather just a repository for public source code.

Very good!
We need to spread the news to developers.

I would love to see some OS4 games like Ikari Warriors, Leatherneck Soldiers, Dogs of War etc. That would be really cool.

Great work! SourceDepot is a brilliant idea. I imagine it's also a nice thing for wannabe programmers looking for example code or (potentially) easy projects to start with.

OS4Depot also not only looks very professional but feels both stable and genuine.

Although I think the SourceDepot idea is a great initative, I also think that confining the sources to compressed archives isn't all that good. You might want to consider setting up CVS repositories for each source tree - which would probably make the sources more accessibe for anyone just wanting to implement some minor features or working together with other people on any given project (it would be nice if you could use your user for CVS access, as well).
