hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : First AmigaOS 4.0 Pre-Release update available
   posted by MikeB on 11-Oct-2004 0:21:36 (14881 reads)
It is with considerable satisfaction that Hyperion Entertainment can now announce the immediate availability for download of the first Amiga OS 4.0 Developer Pre-release update for registered Amiga OS 4.0 users.

Notice: A moderator pressed the wrong button by mistake and deleted the previous news item and 120+ comments. Oh well, though luck, feel free to start again.


Due to the extent and scope of the improvements incorporated into the update, it comes in the form of a full ISO image (33 MB) which needs to be burned on CD-R(W) by the user and is intended to replace the original Amiga OS 4.0 Developer Pre-release CD for installation and rescue purposes.

Please note that the file as well as the resulting CD is for personal use only and may not be distributed in any form to third parties.

Registered users may also opt to order a new full CD which also contains the updated SDK and contribution section (details and terms to be announced shortly).

Among the new features are:

* Kernel-Level Altivec support.
* Much improved compatibilty/speed of 68k emulation (JIT not included yet)
* Improved 68k FPU emulation
* Fully PowerPC-native Picasso96/graphics system
* Fully PowerPC-native MUI
* USB support for input devices
* Support for onboard serial and parallel hardware
* Driver support for the SiI0680 IDE adaptor (including UDMA support)
* Improved PIO mode VIA driver
* Improved Internet capabilities and better ethernet support.
* Printing support
* Improved audio hardware support, including new drivers.
* Comprehensive bug fixes, speed improvements, added features and functionality across all system components.
* and much more...

I'm sure I speak for all AmigaOne users when I say;

"Thanks Hyperion!"

It's about time all you Europeans went to bed. Now those of us in the US can get our shot at the web site.

(d/l'ed in about 30 seconds, BTW )

Now, if I could only get the U-Boot update working.

What's the problem with UBoot?

@tomazkid

sorry about the 'working at night' part.

I don't really want to answer here(*) where the trolls (not -our- Troll, of course ) can use it for ammo, other than to say I don't believe it's a problem with UBoot, just something I may have done.

(*)My question is in the A1 Owners forum.

i know my self enough to say, in my case i would have called my work to say i'm ill till the next weekend ;)
sure thing.. lol then go to a doctor to make him giving you a false ill certificate so you can stop your work legaly for one week, and still get paid for.. while toying with os4 ;)
nice trick, but you can't do it often, tho..
only for very high level circonstances, such as os4 hehe

argh, i want an aone/os4. you can count myself one the list, i'll get one for sure and make it my principal machine. as my a4kppc was.

amazing work Hyperion thanks so much for all Amigans!

(webmasters should add a "confirm button imho ;)

And us Aussies! I've been trying all day but keep getting:

Server Error
The following error occurred:
[code=CANT_CONNECT] Could not connect because of networking problems. Contact your system administrator.

Please contact the administrator.

I'm trying to download this at work so I can burn it, and when I get home I can install straight away
