I am right now uploading beta 4 based on Deadwood's stable ARM ABI. The ARM AROS builds were a kind of "ABI work in Progress". This fact hindered the possibility to aim for the AROS ARM build as developer.
Now we/ you and everyone can start porting apps to AROS for ARM. (click read more)
Registered users can check www.aeros-os.org in about 3 hours. Everyone else should check tomorrow for the public version. (It's still uploading).
Due to some failures (my stupidity) it is not rc1, but a beta4.
New in beta4: - based on stable ARMhf ABI from Deadwood Includes Contrib stuff like: DEMOS, GAMES, Wazp3D, OWB (the old version and not tested/buggy), Screenrecorder, DOPUS (not Magellan). Deadwood compiled lx for ARMhf so launching Linux stuff from AROS side is working as before. It lacks a lot of Linux applications from the last release. Feel free to use synaptic/aptitude/apt get.
Problems: I had trouble because of Linux case sensitive FS Stupidity... next release will look more consistent (AEROS icons).
Today I got a first preview of Directory OPUS Magellan for ARM. If it works I will add it to the next release (next weekend). At the same time I donated again money to the Magellan bounty as a thank you.
Now I have had a chance to try it out I can say its a big jump forward from older releases of AROS for the Raspberry Pi (both AROS nightly builds and previous AEROS beta's). As there is now a bit more native AROS software to try out and use unlike early releases were AROS had been reduced to a linux program launcher for AROS due to a lack of anything more advance than a few utilities like the Calculator running natively.
As you would expect from a beta release there are still a good number of rough edges but if you own a Raspberry Pi I would say this is now really worth a try
