Of course there's so MUCH more actually in the magazine.
Needless to say you often get other versions of software, often what was commercially available, as well as some of the latest try-outs or freely released software applications and games for, hopefully, all of the Amiga type Operating systems, so that's Amiga 'Classic', OS4, MorphOS, and AROS, including some PD software for these systems, all on the Readers' cover CD.

Amiga Future Webpage and SSL
In the next weeks we have to change www.amigafuture.de to SSL.
Unfortunately, Amiga browsers like to have a problem with this.
Here we want to show you some tricks of Rotzloeffel from the A1k so that you can continue to use the Amiga Future webpage on the Amiga:
First you install, if not already done, the following:
1. AMISSL 3.6 - AmiSSL Homepage: http://www.heightanxiety.com/AmiSSL/
2. then an update of AMISSL 4.x - Aminet-Link: http://aminet.net/search?query=amissl
The version Ibrowse 2.4 does not support AmiSSL 4! Only a few older versions of the certificates will be renewed!
- -> An update of Ibrowse 2.5 is vegetating on http://www.ibrowse-dev.net ... will it ever be released?
Many sites encrypted with SSL still offer encryption with TLS1!
You can change the preferred encryption in AmiSSL to just this TLS1 and if the site offers it, which many do, the previously rejected site is opened without any problems.
For this the env-variable ssl_client_version has to be set
In CLI you enter the following commands one after the other:
setenv amissl/ssl_client_version tls1
copy env:amissl envarc:amissl all
In the drawer envarc:, which is located on the hard drive, all env-variablen are stored and copied to the ENV: directory at system startup, which is typically found in the RAM.
Amiga Future: cheats database Update
The cheats database of Amiga Future is updates weekly by David Jahn, even at first sight if it is not immediately apparent.
The cheat database on the Amiga Future webpage is probably the biggest German collection for the Amiga.
This is not just about cheats. Many solutions, tips and tricks, as well as Freezer addresses can be found in this collection.
Meanwhile you can find more as 3400 Games Cheats and solutions in the database, and there is always more.
The database is currently completely in German. If we receive enough donations for the website, we have planned to integrate a proper online database, which will also be available in English.
