Software News   Software News : MorphOS 1.4.5 Free Edition for Phase5 PPC boards available
   posted by tokai on 24-Aug-2005 19:52:33 (18957 reads)
24th August, 2005 - The MorphOS development team would like to celebrate the five year anniversary of the first ever publically available MorphOS release by announcing the immediate availability of MorphOS 1.4.5 Free Edition for PowerUP accelerators by phase5 & DCE.

Update: MorphOS 3D Update pack now available. "This pack brings Warp3D and OpenGL(R) API compatibility to a whole new range of hardware including 3dfx Voodoo and ATI Radeon."



By releasing the latest end user version of MorphOS for PowerPC-equipped Commodore A1200, A3000 and A4000 computers, the OS is brought back to its origins. Prior to creating versions for the bPlan PEGASOS and various embedded hardware platforms, development started out on the forementioned computers by Commodore Business Machines and resulted in a first beta version to be released in August 2000.

For information about supported hardware configurations, installation instructions and the actual download location, please visit

http://powerup.morphos-team.net

Please note that the MorphOS Development Team is unable to provide direct end user support for this specific version of MorphOS. If you encounter any problems, please use the PowerUP forum on MorphZone to ask for help and support.

http://www.morphzone.org/modules/newbb_plus/viewforum.php?forum=42

We sincerely hope you enjoy the Free Edition of MorphOS 1.4.5 and would like to welcome you soon as regulars on a MorphOS community website.

Thank you for your interest,
The MorphOS Development Team

Announced originally for release in 2003 for both PPC enabled classic Amiga and Macintosh hardware, this is certainly a case where I would say: "Better late than never"

Great news for classic PPC owning MOS fans and Amigans who would like to try MorphOS.

The title is bit misleading. 2 hours demo limitation will go away by registering . Registration is free.

Dam...the Morphos-team truly have a good web-designer. That site looks amazing !!!. I wish Hyperion's and Amiga Inc's homepages looked that professional.

The hardware support is a little restricted.. without AGA, I can't even give it a go here (have mediator and alot of expansion boards).

Oh well.. another time, perhaps.

I love these kind of games...

I hope I do not have to remind you that AmigaOS 4 is a 'litle' beyond the schedule, in fact about 'two more weeks' would be exactly right... but then I would say too, "better late than never"!

But anyhow, my board can be put to full use now, cheers to MorphOS-Team!

Finally after all these years someone could come ahead and bring an Amiga PPC based OS for it... you rule!

IMO very unlikely, MorphOS was pretty much abandoned by Genesi commercially, so to me it seems to have been possible to release this much earlier, especially considering that some priviledged MorphOS users stated that they were using this version already.

However AmigaOS4 is still a fully commercially developed product. Would love to see some independent user videos of MorphOS for PPC enabled classics.

MOS still has commercial viablity outside of "amiga market" in areas not for public discussion..

@thread

I'd like to encourage any users who get this *FREE* version Please Donate with Paypal - they could have easily sold this for $79+
