From Individual Computers website: Just as last year, individual Computers will be present at this year's Gateway Amiga show in St. Louis. In addition to the known products, the prototype of the brand new VarIO Zorro-board will be presented. It replaces the totally sold-out Hypercom Zorro boards with some revolutionary new features. A new software system by Thore Böckelmann that replaces HyperIO and the silversurfer.device, gives new functions also for users who already own a Silversurfer or a Goldsurfer.
In cooperation with Cloanto Software, the vendor of the "Amiga Forever" emulator, we'll show the Catweasel ISA controller that lets you read your Amiga disks with a PC.
Further, there will be a class about Zorro-2 hardwaredesign on friday, march 30th. It is meant for beginners and advanced hardware designers.

|In reply to Comment 1 (Solar (BAUD)):|
Perhaps because ISA is simpler and cheaper to design and build?
Besides Jens Schoenfeld posted on Amiga-news.de, that one of the "new" features
would be a PS/2-Interface accessable via a serial.device compatible device, so
i would guess that standard mice could perhaps be used with this new card. The
other goodies that are said to be there were not mentioned though...
