On power2people.org a bounty was opemed for the goal to port the C++ class library Qt to AROS. The conditions of the bounty are complied with, if the modules QtCore, QtNetwork, QtGui, QtScript and QtXml were ported. Additionally the Qt-based Youtube-browser SMTube must be available in a working version.
Currently AROS does not support dynamic linking of libraries. Therefore the port may be a Static Library. Szilárd 'BSzili' Biró again agreed to undertake the bounty - but will start his work after finishing his college which could last still nine months.

AROS Developer ALB42 has developed the first Torrent Client for AROS coded all in Free Pascal. We read from his blog: "I decided to call it ArTorr instead of ATorrent, 1st Atorrent is so long and boring 2nd its already taken for an Android Torrent client. ArTorr hmm sounds like a “Talk like a pirate” hommage.. ARRRRTor Its version 0.01 so very first alpha version."

Odamex is a free, cross-platform modification of the Doom engine, that combines the features of Boom with some additional enhancements: The widescreen format is supported, the mouse can be used ("mouselook") and the player can jump.
The port was provided by Szilárd 'BSzili' Biró. He wrote: "The update includes the new 32-bit renderer as well as an experimental server browser: ag-odalaunch. It has many issues (the file browser is horribly broken), but you shouldn't have problems connecting to servers. It uses my new pthreads implementation, which is still in its infancy, that can be another source of instability."

AEROS 3.9.0a for i386-computers available
In Pascal Papara's indieGO!-store version 3.9.0a of his Linux-hosted AROS-distribution AEROS is available (video).
For a longe time, only ARM-devices were supported but this AEROS-update, based on the Linux distribution Knoppix, is meant for x86-PCs. Version 3.9.0a does not have to be installed because it is on USB/Flash-image.
Szilárd 'Bszili' Biró has updated his ports of the games Jedi Academy and Jedi Outcast. It fixes bugs concerning the multiplayer game. Now you can enter text for communicating with other players.

PictureAlbum r1 released
PictureAlbum is a picture browser/organiser that works differently to anything else I've seen - I find it to be much easier & quicker to use. It's hard to describe briefly, so just try it out or look at a screenshot.
While it has all the basic features that I consider "essential", there is certainly a lot more that could be added if I found the time...
Recent changes * First release which isn't a 'preview' (although little has changed).
Screenshots from AmigaOS4 version (AROS version is pretty similar) screenshot 1 screenshot 2 (I couldn't work out how to make the screenshots visible in the news item, so you'll just have to click on the links)
