EmuLa available for AROS i386Print


I'm glad to announce that the first public release of EmuLa is available for AROS i386.

PortablE r6 Beta ReleasedPrint


peChris Handley released a small update to PortablE:

  • Built-in procedures can now support unlimited parameters (although only some have been updated to use this ability).
  • Improved MUI & ReAction modules to use procedures with unlimited parameters (instead of immedate tag lists). So the C/C++ code generated for GUIs is now human-readable!
  • Added the NoListOptim switch, so that the code generated for Immediate Lists can be more human-readable.
  • AmigaOS4: Added the 'intuition/menuclass' module, aka "AISS menus", and the example program "Examples/Amiga/OS4_ReAction/MenuClass.e".
  • When a bug exception was thrown during compilation, it could give the wrong message. Now fixed.
  • Fixed a few module bugs.

You can download it from Aminet & OS4Depot:

Create programs for all Amiga platforms with LazarusPrint


LazThis is FANTASTIC News!

Marcus 'ALB42' Sackrow created a virtual machine with his compiled Lazarus source and cross compilers for Amiga, AROS and MorphOS. The virtual machine is for VMWare Player. Lazarus and a short description is placed on the Desktop. You 

The package is rather big (1.6 GB packed, 9 GB unpacked).

Odyssey Web Browser 1.25 beta (version 26.03.2016)Print


Krzysztof 'Deadwood' Śmiechowicz' latest beta update of Odyssey allows loading Google-spreadsheet and working with other applications (Draw, Drive etc.). Support for WebWorker was re-enabled and the internal threading support was changed to AROS POSIX-threads library. The diskcache also works properly.

Another update to Odyssey 1.25 betaPrint


owbKrzysztof 'Deadwood' Śmiechowicz has released an update of Odyssey 1.25 beta with the following changes:

  • Fixed messages console to display messages
  • Made aligned allocation not take additional memory
  • Made memory allocator work better with fragmented memory
  • Fixed major memory leak where Frames were not released together with their JS data - memory no longer continously consumed while browsing
  • Fixed a number of small memory leaks
  • Implemented a more agreesive memory freeing strategy which keeps allocated memory as low as possible

Port Python 2.7 core to AROSPrint


p2pPorting it to AROS not only brings a lot of software, but it allows to quickly create new ones too, and to better manage the system, since Python versatility goes from fast GUI applications prototyping to system administration, from testing to astronomical big data analysis, and so on. Python can be considered the Swiss knife of computer science.

Since the big effort required for the port, this bounty is the first of a series of 5 that will bring this language/platform to AROS. In fact, the port is ideally split in the following 5 parts:

  • Python 2.7 core;
  • PyZune (a complete Python binding for the Zune library);
  • Python 2.7 external libs (bzip2, Berkeley db, openssl, sqlite3);
  • Python 2.7 external libs (tcl, tk). This is optional or with a very low priority, since Tcl/Tk is used to build application with GUI, but for AROS the priority is making the same, albeit using Zune as natural and native replacement;
  • Python 3.5.


Odyssey Web Browser Public Source Code RepositoryPrint


owbI would like to invite interested developers from all platforms to join the Odyssey Web Browser development.

The repository is public, available to everyone and located on GitHub:

The repository contains the latest version of Odyssey (1.25) which:

  • is a continuation of Fab's 1.24 code base
  • is rebased directly on WebKit engine (no longer uses Orygin proxy layer that 1.24 used) for easier integration of new engine versions
  • uses WebKit revision 187682 (end of July version)
  • is rebuilt to support multi-platform development in build configuration and source code

If you are interested in developing a feature in Odyssey, no matter how small, or fixing a bug, no matter how trivial, contact me via email at Don't worry - everybody had to start somewhere! I will help you understand the code base, build process and development approach.

Please spread the news!

PortablE r6 beta releasedPrint

PortablE is a recreation of the AmigaE programming language, along with all the improvements I wanted. PortablE works on AROS, MOS, OS4, and even Windows to an extent! (It should also work on OS3, but compiling needs a powerful machine like WinUAE.)

This is the first proper new release in 2 years, and has been throughly tested on the latest version of AROS x86 (Icaros Desktop Live), and the other supported OSes too.
