Excellent News - I have been more than happy with WinUAE ever since the CD32 Emulation was sorted, seemed pretty complete to me personally at that point as a simple user. Always good to see it get even better though . The Cirrus Logic SVGA chip emulation sounds interesting ?useful.

To news editors/moderators: Instead of the .zip archive directly, how about linking the Download page of WinUAE instead? There's a version with Installer there too, among others...

Every time WinUAE is updated I think Amiga E-UAE just got that much farther behind. I love WinUAE, it's a great program.

Cause of your comment I ended up searching for Toni on zeh net. Found this interview;

You don't seem to be a supporter of the new generation of Amigas (with AROS, MorphOS or AmigaOS 4). Have you ever tested them ? What is your opinion about these systems ?

For me, Classic Amiga is only a hobby/retro. I do not want or need Amiga for serious stuff and I want to use modern, powerful hardware (which the original Amigas were), not some expensive PowerPC boards that are mostly made from obsolete PC parts. Also, an OS that doesn't have full memory protection and resource tracking isn't modern enough for me. I have never understood why hobbyist/retro people are usually put in the same group with "next gen" Amiga users. Many of "us" are not interested (some parts of the so-called "Amiga community" see you as an enemy of "the Amiga" if you don't like or care about PowerPC Amiga stuff... Another reason why I don't take part in most Amiga discussions here and there).

Judging by the interview in general, his main gripe with Amiga OS is the lack of memory protection and resource tracking. He mentioned that in 2 places in the interview.

Anyhow, interview is from 2009, so have no idea if he feels the same way about NG Amigas and AOS4.x

It's not only Amiga E-UAE that's lagging behind... it's EVERY version of UAE that's lagging behind WinUAE, and that is thanks to Toni's astounding work... he's just like some sort of steamroller
