Software News   Software News : MorphOS 2.5 released: eMac Support and Special Celebratory Price!
   posted by guruman on 3-Jun-2010 23:56:45 (8584 reads)
The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the public release of MorphOS 2.5, the fifth new OS version since the debut of MorphOS 2.0 in the same month two years ago. MorphOS 2.5 finally adds the Apple eMac to its list of officially supported platforms. In addition to the extended hardware support, existing users will benefit from various bug fixes and a few new features. For an overview of the included changes, please read our release notes.

We strongly urge owners of eMac computers to carefully read our installation and troubleshoot guides before they attempt to install MorphOS for the first time. Existing users can upgrade via the familiar procedure but are encouraged to read the guides as well. MorphOS 2.5 is available for download in our files section.

In anticipation of the 2nd anniversary of the release of MorphOS 2.0 later this month, you are now able to purchase a MorphOS keyfile at the special celebratory price of 111,11 EUR (includ. 19% VAT), the same price that was available to the very first buyers of version 2 of MorphOS during our introductory phase in 2008.

As a Powermac G4 owner I feel double shafted.... Not only the Powermac version has been delayed, but I cannot take advantage of this special offer either.

Nice going.

@Nostromo

If I understood it right the new official price is 111.11 EUR.
I might be wrong, but looking at the "help desk"-section on the MorphOS-Teams page says the current price is that...

Well, I hope so, but I suspect that this will be for a short period only.

Wow, nice! eMacs are super cheap here.. theres a few for about $300 nzd.. or about 160 euro roughly. It's pretty attractive pricing for Amiga lands. Maybe I'll have to give morphos a proper whirl on the powerbooks once I graduate. :) I got windows7 laptop, an ubuntu netbook.. an amiga laptop would be a cool addition too.

I think you misunderstood the announcement. It was the release of support of the G4 eMac that was delayed because the team was hoping to have support for the G4 PowerMacs completed for the 2.5 version release, but when work on the PowerMac release took longer than they had first thought it would, they finally decided to release 2.5's added features, bug fixes and support for the eMac now, and support for the G4 PowerMacs will be in a later release, probably 2.6.

MorphOS was demonstrated on the eMac many months ago, probably as early as version 2.2, or 2.3 was running on the eMac in that demo. so I really don't think you should feel that the support for a G4 PowerMac has been delayed in any way due to work being done for the G4 eMac.

Well, I dont mind waiting for another 6 months, after already having waited since January or so for the Powermac release.

But I really hope we also get the chance to buy Morphos for 111 Euro....

Congratulations!

Not much new features (or things I would like to call features). However, eMac support is great and new price is nice!

A few weeks for me, but...yeah.

Still, it looks like the volume control and network issues on the Mini are fixed, so I'll be installing this over the weekend!

Really lucky, 160 Euros and you get a nice computer
with a nice OS. It's hard to find this quality/price ratio...

As a Mac Mini MOS owner is this an update or do I have to pay for this? Looks like a big bunch of fixes to me.

@ace

No, you do not have to pay to be able to use the update if you already have a MorphOS keyfile.

@acefnq
It can be considered as an update for existing users, hence it's free for them. All 2.x versions so far were free for all registered users, since 2.0, no matter which version you've registered with on which supported machine.

Additionally, on MorphOS there's a single installation medium (except "bigrom" image for Efika), which either can be used to install a new system from scratch, or to update an existing installation on all supported machines.
