Fleecy is giving specifications on what to expect in future AmigaOS versions. A brand new, written from scratch TCP/IP stack, Virtual Memory will come in OS4, the Amiga Component Model will give resource tracking, OS5 will bring SMP, an ACM and streaming system will bring a new datatypes system, the Audio system will be the best of any system out there. [They] have 5 of the best audio people in the world working on it. Closely-integrated 2D and 3D API are already underway, and with [their] close alliance with Matrox, there will be not only standard high level APIs but GLIDE like low level APIs to really take advantage of Matrox cards. A a new Workbench, an improved intuition.library will come in AmigaOS 4.5, hardware-independancy and probably a new printer system in 4.2 and a new filesystem in 4.0.

Fleecy writes: AmigaOS4.0 will be launched in the summer, with 4.2 and 4.5 coming out at six month intervals. OS5 will be late next year.

He adds: People have buried the Amiga more times than squirrels bury acorns, and you know what, it keeps on growing back. Beware the naysayers, for they have their own agendas.

In reply to a quote which says Ralph Schimdt (MorphOS) says there Amiga Inc has a lot of illusions...BPlan won`t run AmigaOS4...it will run MorphOS, he answers: Amiga Inc has an agreement with bPlan to build an AmigaOne. AmigaOne computers run Amiga Inc software. Whatever else is run on it is nothing to do with us, unless it infringes our copyrights or IP.

Finally, he says: I have spent hours a day trying to bring all the Amiga developers together but it seems there is just too much hatred. In the end there can only be one AmigaOS, and one Amiga Inc company moving it forwards. Amiga has retaken control, is working directly with many contractors and looks forwards to all working with us to make a better Amiga in the future..

Fleecy writes: AmigaOS4 will only run on hardware that conforms to the zico specification - currently that is the Eyetech AmigaOne (which also offers full backwards compatibility with AA chipset access applications) and the bPlan AmigaOne, which will run AmigaOS4 apps and older apps which use retargetable coding. We look forwards to other Amiga hardware companies developing zico based solutions and are actively talking to them.

Fleecy, after explaining Amiga Inc.'s strategy, also says, Amiga Inc will bring management and control of the AmigaOS back inhouse. [..] It means that the OS that will run on the AmigaOne is AmigaOS4, a PPC OS that takes full advantage of the new hardware, and that will come, (in OS4.2) with a fully integrated AmigaDE layer.

I corrected a site glitch earlier this morning, and apologize for any incovenience this might have caused. A lot of news have been posted from the show already, but I just wanted to remind everyone that today is April 1st, and as such everything you hear, read or see should be taken with a grain of salt, unless already announced yesterday, or confirmed tomorrow. :)
