News   News : Bitplane Editor Nicola Morocutti Joins Cloanto
   posted by mcb on 10-Sep-2007 17:30:55 (5196 reads)
Cloanto Italia srl, Amiga software developers since 1986, announced today that Nicola Morocutti has accepted an offer to join Cloanto's Udine team as a full-time job, with a focus on Amiga-related projects and evangelism.

Like Cloanto, Nicola has remained loyal to the Amiga and its community, supporting it through the most difficult of times and delivering on his promises year after year. In his new position, Nicola will remain the editor of Bitplane, the magazine he co-founded in 2001, and which remains one of only a handful of printed Amiga publications worldwide. Nicola is also a co-organizer of the Pianeta Amiga and Codex Alpe Adria events.

"Nicola adds 20 years of Amiga enthusiasm, experience, integrity and respect to our team. We are very grateful to Nicola and to all those who have supported us over the years and who keep supporting us now. We are working hard to continue to meet their expectations," said Cloanto's Michael C. Battilana.

"This job is an Amiga dream come true. Sitting next to me are the people who wrote Personal Paint and Personal Write, who knew Jay Miner, who kept the dream alive, and who after 20 years are still hiring for new Amiga projects! I believe that Cloanto not only uniquely embodies Amiga culture and continuity, but it has the vision, competence and courage to challenge the status quo and reshape the landscape. I am very excited to be able to contribute to this," said Nicola Morocutti.

Yeah, great to hear once again that Michael and Cloanto are not just names and shadows of the past, but doing very real things in the present, and for the future. Good luck to all!

And I must agree; PPaint for OS4 would be awesome, and definitely worth money for me too. But I fear it could be too far from portable to make it a realistic project? A more modest wish: How about a native OS4 version of DirDiff, updated to fully support links (soft/hard, creating new links when both link and destination are within the tree, options to copy soft link or the file it links to, etc.), and with a Reaction-based GUI? And using 64-bit calls wherever needed to support large files, of course.

Best regards,
