Ralph Schmidt announces the MorphOS 0.4 Release with a lot of new native OS modules, an OS Module Plugin, a WarpOS/Warp3d emulation and a 2hour timeout.
Finally, the 3rd MorphOS Release is available.
Quite a while has passed since the 2nd release
but we hope that the new features and overall
improved stability are appreciated.
This is a snapshot of our current version with
the timeout increased to 2 hours.

Major new functionalities are

o support for AmigaOS3.5/3.9 update rom
modules.
No need anymore for dangerous resets.

o support for external rom modules so that
everybody can write his own rom module
replacements and put them into the load
dir.

o WarpOS emulation, finally you are able to
play HereticII with Warp3D while running
MorphOS.

o new native modules

o exec(fully independent)
o expansion.library
o romboot
o input.device
o keyboard.device
o battclock.resource
o battmem.resource
o cardres.resource
o cia.resource
o potgo.resource

o Improved CyberGraphX PPC with native
Superlayers.

o Improved BlizzardPPC support

o native jfif.datatype for completeness

o better devpackage

o more efficient ppc/68k switch which
results into better compiled code and
lower latencies.

New native 3rd party software

o Bochs(PC Emulator)

o New MUIPPC Snapshot

o New MagicMenuPPC

o xpk

o cnet.device

New MorphOS 0.4 Release : Comment 95 of 109ANN.lu
Posted by Amifan on 18-Feb-2001 23:00 GMT
In reply to Comment 91 (Syzygy9000):
>When news of bPlan was first made. The line was something like "bPlan is a >company formed by ex-employees of phase5".
>I don't know how true that is
Well, it's nice that you want to reply to some posts, but I think that Ralph said clearly " us, bPlan" hm......
But at the beginning of your post you say:
>I will try to avoid the use of sarcasm here, it seems some people either >cannot interpret it on ANN, or choose not too interpret it.
Interpret what??
If you can't find proof in the words of a former Phase employee then what's your point?
>BTW, you won't recognise me, this isn't my usual handle...
In other words, you're posting anonymously........why?
Because the people you mean by these words : "Maybe Amiga knows that a large proportion of the Classic Amiga users feel like I do." are limited to your little brother sitting next door?
>I hang out on IRC with "real" Amiga users
So what's your definition of a real amiga user? A real amiga user wants to see the market split up because the developer of a great game X decides to write a MorpOS version while developer of the great game Y decides to write the game for WarpOS? Is this the definition of the "real" amiga user???
Well, you're right then i'm not a "real" amiga user. I just want compatibility but that's apperantly what's not allowed by people like you..... and why should this care you? Because in your definition of the real amiga user you use the amiga solely as a hobby and use your wintel box for serious stuff.....
>I can't say I would that I would buy the DE tomorrow, cos I personally don't >believe that it'll ever take off like they want it too.
We agree on one point
>In reply to Comments about the phase5 PCI busboard:
>It was a development board, which used "the same chips you see on a >BVision/CVision."
Wow well maybe it's nice to know that the G-REX uses almost (if not completely) the same bridge as the BVision afterall, just compare the IC on G-rex with the ones on your BVision....
The point is that Phase5 had this technology all the time, but chooced to make a custom GFX sollution based on an underpowered 3D chip which is way to xpensive for what it's capable of, but "we" had to accept that because we had no other choice....And what's the exuse afterwards for this anti-vision of Phase5? "We weren't into towering bussiness, all our products must be able to run in a standard amiga1200" Well what about that recycled 040 blizzard rt or something? You needed a tower for that? And how hard can it be to buy the most popular amiga tower, get the sizes for the PCB?
Then Elbox announced a PCI busboard and suddenly there's a thread for the expensive BVision...so they announced immediatly a busboard (ok it's DCE this time). So am I wrong or was Phase5 just making a lot of money from the poor amiga followers.
Some ex P5 employee wanted to stop the sales of the mediator by posting some technical "limitations" which turned out to be no practical "limitations" afterall....
Well, it's all about money again and how to abtain it in no matter what way?
Maybe this ex P5 employee get payed to the amount of G-REX sold?
In reply to Comment 74:
"[General ranting]"
Please be more specific? What ranting? Did I ly or something? Maybe read some post.
Did bPlan deliver some products? Did I miss something?
And what about the pree-order money? Ex-Phase5 employee's surely know what was going on in their compagny....come on....it wasn't a multinational?
So where is the money? And do you think it's easy to the needed money for this kind of risky developement from a bank?
Maybe it's ranting the way I give the post a little emotional touch :), but it at least holds some truth....
But how much value do my words have for you? I'm no "real" amiga user by your definition. I'm just using my amiga for about everything I can...and not as a pure hobby only....
