Lately it seemed that astronomical things where happening over at the Icaros Desktop website. And indeed it did, because Paolo Besser worked very hard to release another point release of his Aros distribution called Icaros Desktop 1.4.

A lot of improvements where made and many new features where added. One of the biggest "Cosmic" change is the inclusion of a brand new updated version of the Odyssey Web Browser.

This distribution can be downloaded in two flavours:

P.S. don't forget to download and read the updated Icaros 1.4 manual in order to get answers to all those questions you might have.

Bounty: Printer.device Phase 1Print


Jason McMullan was kind enough to complete his bounty on the Printer.device.

Even though the bounty was finished and Jason collected his bounty, he still could use some feedback from us Aros-users.

So please be so kind and tell Jason what does and does not work for you in relation to this bounty.

Preliminary printer support was included in Icaros Desktop 1.4. So if you are an Aros-user and own a Postscript-printer and are willing to do some printing-tests then please do so and give Jason your feedback over at !

Game: Duke Nukem 3D port for Aros ?Print


Well, it could not really be avoided anymore ;). Szilárd Biró was couragious enough and started porting Duke Nukem 3D (a first-person shooter computer game developed by 3D Realms).

A testing release of the port can be downloaded here and more information about Szilárd's port can be found here , though there seem to be some SDL_mixer related issues.

So dust of your old disks and put them to good use again !

Please report unknown issues here as Szilárd really is anxious to know about them. Oh, and keep an eye on Szilárd because he seems to have an Aros-agenda.
