Announcement   Announcement : Announcing VMWAros 0.8
   posted by Raffaele on 16-Jun-2008 13:31:06 (1844 reads)
Paolo Besser announces on the site of VMWAros that version 0.8 of VMWAros entered debbugging stage and it will be soon available for download thanks to the efforts of Krzysztof Smiechowicz.

Announcing VmwAROS 0.8

The time to announce a new beta release of VmwAROS has come. Thanks to Krzysztof Smiechowicz, who kindly provided me a newer customized muimaster.library, I'm finally able to freeze the feature set of VmwAROS 0.8 and start the debug process. The new edition of VmwAROS will obviously include more apps and games than the 0.7 ones, a new dual-kernel function to prevent boot issues on very old ATA chipsets and initial SATA support for selected controllers (feature obviously limited to the Live! version).

Cool !

Does this version make it easy to transfer files from pc or usb ?

I tried a developer version, Installed it in Windows and I could not access any drives, no internet access.

In all, a developer version that I could not transfer my code to.

@asymetrix

AROS does not yet support mass storage devices as far as I know.
If you like to try AROS out and need file transfer between Windows & AROS,
I suggest you run VmwAROS as a virtual machine, just dowload WmWare Player and off you go. You can configure networking on the virtual machine so you can ftp your files between
Windows and AROS.

If you are more serious user and have a spare PC lying around that has "supported" hardware. You can install AROS natively and network it to your PC from there.
Either VmwAROS distro or AROS nightly build will do. I find VmwAROS more interesting
as it has more things ready-configured.

Check hardware compability here.

More great work from people involved with Aros. I hope development continues (but maybe at a faster pace!)
