From the Startup log:

OS_4.1_4 -- donderdag 16-08-2012 18:56
OS_4.1_5 -- donderdag 16-08-2012 18:59

Very, very pleased.

P.s.: Anyone using RaMover in WBStartup (prefs), then remove it! It may/will cause a GR.

Does this mean we can remove "sam440update" from wbstartup?

I doubt it. They are for completely different things (AFAIK).

Disk access speed is much improved.

I opened up OWB from scratch in under a second (!), used to take 5-7 seconds and 'halt/block' access to stuff like opening a WB window during this time. Graphics seem to draw quicker in OWB too.

So far, great impression.

Ok, i'll leave it in place then, thanks.

This DMA fix, does it affect the internal SATA 2 controller on SAM 460´s?

Only had time to have a quick play, but OWB is very snappy now in both gfx and network access.

Nice selection of new background images as well, using the Sky one here - looks great if you set the Workbench font to White.
