At the weekend I will create a game-package and a compatibility-page (f.e. Hollywood and Final Writer work from my experience)

Then I will start to work on the next big update. For problems or questions I have this thread

Nice distro, Vision seems to be popular name. To level up,
maybe MorphOS 3.0 should also be "vision" and AmigaOS 4.2 "vision"

Hope it will grow to NatamiOS

Have you tested this on a real Amiga yet, or just WinUAE on a super fast PC?

Yes Vision is very popular now

I think 3.0 or 4.2 sounds boring, it should also get names like "hammer" or "sunshine" or sth. similar ...

No, I personally have no classic hardware that would be good enough to use it (with "it" I mean Aros 68k because my distro is only expansion but makes it not faster). I have seen it running in Aros X86 in JanusUAE, so it should also run in E-UAE and of course it runs in WinUAE. I have seen a video of Aros 68k with Scalos running on classic hardware and it was usable but the requirements are still high (060/50) because it is not very optimized right now. So my distro should run on classic hardware too but needs Ram and very fast CPU (video with 68030 showed it that it would be too slow, I have not seen Aros 68k running on 68040 but it would propably be slow too. 68060 recommended). But it will be further optimized and improved and will certainly run faster on classic hardware in future.

giving fancy names to releases is a dumb habit that surfaced lately. why is that done?? how does vista, lion or snow leopard describes the attributes of an operating system? if it leopard was a tank, then okay but it isnt even a car, if those are usually named in similar stupid fashion.

to me version numbers are simple and informative. but do as you like.

I have to somewhat argee with WaWa here. I'm getting thoroughly confused on the whole AROS situation now with all sorts of different releases with different names.

The way this one is named I would expect it to run on real 680x0 Amigas. I clicked on the link and couldn't work out why it was talking about x86. I thought the link was wrong. :)

@darrin: x86? where?
besides if you want to run it on real hardware it might be easier to start with something more basic, like the last nightly (20mb). i described instalation procedure somewhere in this thread by olaf:
http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=35052&forum=27#660880
otherwise olafs distro spares you necessity to gather the rest of software to try out.
besides you have fpgaarcade, right? would be interesting to know how it aros runs on that.

@wawa - Until MikeJ et. al . releases the updated core with the IDE fixes - it doesn't run well at all on the FPGA Arcade.

@WaWa

Cheers for the tips. I have it on my list of "things to do" to try it on the FPGA Aracde. If I can get some extended time off then I want to try AROS on my A4000 and the FPGA. I'll post the results.

Just need some time off...

@ Ezrec

I was worried that bugs in the soft CPU might be an issue (like with OS3.9).

I have OS3.9 running on my FPGA Arcade (and the Chameleon64), but certain things had to be disabled and other things refuse to work (like the screen mode prefs).

Roll on the next update...

@Darrin

In a few days i will publish a changed version (removed and added components). It is f.e. then including video playback using FFMPeg/FFPlay, Antivirus and packer support. Generally speaking it is a nightly build with added components so all experiences with Aros 68k nightly build regarding compatibility and speed should be the same with my distribution.
