Software News   Software News : IT'S DONE!
   posted by Rogue on 24-Dec-2006 15:59:13 (131949 reads)
Leuven, Belgium, 24 December 2006.

Hyperion-entertainment is very pleased to announce the immediate availability (for registered AmigaOne customers) of Amiga OS 4.0, The Final Update.


Originally released in May of 2004, Amiga OS 4.0 (www.amigaos4.com) is the most stable, modern and feature-rich incarnation to date of the multi-media centric operating system launched by Commodore Business Machines (CBM) in 1985 with which it still retains a high degree of compatibility.

Amiga OS 4.0, The Final Update is the culmination of 5 years of development and takes the form of a stand-alone ISO image which contains a full installation of all Amiga OS 4.0 components.

A list of new features can be found here .

Availability of PowerPC hardware suitable for operation with Amiga OS 4.0 will be announced by third parties early 2007.

The Hyperion Entertainment management would like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers and supporters a pleasant holiday season!

Bloomin' heck!

It's Christmas and no Mistake!

Great news and thanks to everyone who worked on it!

Just one tinny problem, I'm on Dial that cuts me off after 2 Hours, any danger of a split release?


edited to add: unless someone can think of a program that resumes downloading that works for that site, Amiga OS 4 (pre-release 4 arf!) Windows 2000 or even Mac OS X?


So what's it like guys?

My thanks also to all the OS4.0 team who have worked so hard to bring out the final release - and just before Xmas too!

What with new releases of IBrowse, DVplayer & DOpus this is turning into a very Merry Xmas!

Thanks again

If you allow me this advice: you should better edit your post so that your email is human readable but more tricky to sniff by email hunter (spam).

Probably a good idea, although I already receive a crapload of span each day and most of it gets filtered

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Thank you SO much to all the Hyperion team, the Alpha & Beta testers, the programmers that have contributed 3th party software. Everyone that contributed from Eyetech. Everyone at Amiga Inc. & everyone I've forgotten. It's taken a lot of people to make this happen & I for one more than appreciate what you've all done.

After answering a million questions that are inevitable, kick back & enjoy the holiday season.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, FuZion.
