Software News   Software News : IT'S DONE!
   posted by Rogue on 24-Dec-2006 15:59:13 (131950 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!

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


I hope my email to you doesn't get caught in that snare.

SU-FLIPPIN-PERB!

OS4 Final. I'm off to download it immediately

Thanks so much to everyone at Hyperion and to everyone else involved in the OS4 project.

I wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a peaceful 2007.

Well, I'll be. All the threads by people saying, "Where is OS4? I've had enough of waiting, I'm leaving." Hopefully we can tempt them back now!

I, among countless others was fed up to the back teeth with waiting, but now OS4 has arrived, I can let all that go! True die-hard Amigans don't care how long a product takes to arrive, so long as it DOES arrive, and it HAS!

Now for the hardware... and in my case, an OS4-native version of AnimatED.

Slash, if you're reading this, as I just said, I don't care how long you take with that, just please don't give up the project completely! :

A short notice, I saw several bounced mails in the last hour from people trying to retrieve their password to our site... for some reasons (either the E-Mail address is wrong or the server is blocked or similar) if these mails bounce, write me a mail directly.

Please specify your user name on www-hyperion-entertainment.biz too.

YEEEEEAAAAAAAH!!!!! At last!!! Enfin!!!
...and, given what Rogue said a few times, the release of AmigaOS 4.0 final probably means new hardware just around the corner!

Faster memory system!
Some memory protection!
32 bit icons!
A1 floppy support!
Updated printer drivers!
Radeon overlay!

Congratulations to Hyperion and the whole AmigaOS 4.0 team, you've done an amazing job, I can't imagine what efforts you had to make and what is your joy now! Thanks!
Now it's party time!

You might be interested to read that the new version supports planar screens transparently on a graphics card, meaning things like DPaint should work even if you use HAM or HAM8.

@Seer,

I wasn't talking about epistula, rather the OS4 version of AnimatED. Slash told me no progress has been made on that, but I hope the project hasn't been abandoned completely.
