Announcement   Announcement : AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition available before the end of 2014
   posted by Mason on 26-Oct-2014 19:31:57 (10802 reads)
Brussels, October 27, 2014

Hyperion Entertainment is pleased to announce the imminent availability of "AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition" for all supported platforms.

AmigaOS 4.1 was released in September of 2008 and has seen no less than 6 free major updates and at least 81 smaller updates released through AmiUpdate.



New functionality in AmigaOS 4.1 Final Update includes but is not limited to:

- Extended memory functionality (beneficial for all supported platforms even those platforms which cannot be equipped with more than 2GB)
- Most powerful console for AmigaOS
- New Intuition features
- New Workbench features
- Much improved DOS
- New unified graphics library with RTG support which allows for (current and future) very substantial general and platform specific performance optimizations e.g. through the use of on-chip DMA engines (present on recently released hardware going back to the SAM440)
- Updated Python port
- Installation graphics, new icons and back-drops by Martin Merz
- Countless minor updates, new other functionality and bug-fixes.

AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition requires NO previous version of AmigaOS 4.x and is a stand-alone product, quite possibly the most affordable version of AmigaOS ever to be released.

This frees current users of AmigaOS 4.1 to install the original version of AmigaOS 4.1 and subsequently download or apply 6 updates and countless minor updates.

Users are nevertheless recommended to register their copy of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition on the Hyperion Entertainment website as this will be required for downloading possible future updates and bug fixes.

An updated SDK for developers which exposes all new OS functionality to developers, is being worked on.

Hyperion Entertainment wishes to thank all those developers and contributors who have furthered AmigaOS development over the years and especially those that have worked tirelessly on delivering "AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition" to customers before the end of 2014.

Our thanks go out to all of our supporters and loyal customers who can rest assured that work on AmigaOS 4.2 is ongoing apace albeit somewhat behind schedule due to the fact that substantial time had to be allocated for supporting new upcoming exciting hardware platforms. We appreciate your support!

AmigaOS Final Edition has gone gold and is in production at this time.

Suggested retail price is 29,95 EUR (SRP includes German VAT, may vary depending on your location).

Nice!

It will make AOS4 hobby restarting a lot smoother than it otherwise would be. (I most likely need to do a clean start soonish)

Yes! I agree previous praises!

However I'm unhappy that I didn't know this kind of release was planned since I would had ideas to improve the old installation process in Classic version.

I wish they would have done something for automatically switch from default video to RTG. Originally It took me a while to notice the picture changed from default 23-pin video port to Mediator plugged Radeon 9200, since it left original video screen blank white without any prior notification that I whould change my input source in the monitor.

Also some more diagnostic features when switching from 68060 to PPC would have been nice. Now you really don't know what happens if screen hangs on blue, red or pink screen. "PPC status ok" text or similar wold have been good addition.

And the best improvement for this would have been some workaround to improve the limited address space with Mediator. It never allowed me to use all cards when Radeon 9200 256MB and ZorRAM 256MB eat so much address space.

Too late now anyway since it is in production.

Will buy it ofcourse anyway!
