   posted by ASiegel on 27-Jun-2014 19:32:53 (2335 reads)
The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the immediate availability of MorphOS 3.6. Delivering one of the most requested features, this new version can now utilize the built-in Wi-Fi hardware in all Apple systems that feature Broadcoms BCM43 chipset. In addition, MorphOS further extends its support of graphics chipsets to include AMDs R400 series by adding compatibility with Radeon X800 PRO and FireGL X3 cards. Moreover, the latest version of MorphOS now enables laptop owners to define custom screen modes and provides default modes for increasingly common high resolution displays.

Click the "Read More" button for more info ----------------------------------->

Improving interoperability and overall convenience, MorphOS 3.6 adds a new SMBFS filesystem handler with 64-bit I/O support for easy file sharing via network storage devices, a new VNC server to control your MorphOS systems remotely or even without a display, and a Synergy client for sharing a nearby mouse and keyboard with any Linux, MacOS or Windows machine that is part of your local network and acts as a Synergy server.

As usual, MorphOS 3.6 includes many more improvements and bug fixes. For a more complete list of all changes, please read our MorphOS 3.6 release notes.

We strongly urge new users to carefully read our installation and troubleshooting 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 3.6 is available for download in our files section.

This release has some of the most desired features I have been looking forward to, the driver for the Airport Extreme and support for the Radeon R400 video cards.

Now I can use my FireGL X3 video card in my Dual 2.7GHz G5 PowerMac for the fastest MorphOS system available without over-clocking.

I can't wait to get it installed and see how it feels and benchmarks.

It was not supposed to have the SAM460 support for this release?

It was never officially announced for 3.6, as far as I know. According to a post on MorphZone by one of the porters (in this thread), it was postponed to a later release.

I guess this means there is still work to have the system properly supported (like better support for newer Radeons) and it made no sense to delay the rest of the improvements in the system just because of that.

Kookytech/Danwood made a very nice youtube presentation of the 3.6 features.

I must say MorphOS looks very nice!
