Kickstart ROM Replacement (Phase II) Assigned
« on: November 08, 2010, 07:23:28 PM »
While Jason McMullan is already providing first results of Phase I bounty, the Phase II of the Kickstart ROM Replacement bounty has just been assigned to Toni Wilen. The Phase II aims at improving the Phase I results to make AROS binary compatible with AmigaOS 3.1 m68k software. Toni Willen is the maintainer of WinUAE and has already commited significant work to Phase I. The deadline date for the bounty is 31st March 2011.

The bounty page is available here: http://www.power2people.org/projects/profile/6

Please remember that the bounty is still open to donations, so you can support Toni's efforts!

If Toni can't ring up a few thousand for this after all he's done for the community over the years, we're a pretty sad group.

This is fantastic news...
 
No schedule and rockin' That sure beats vaporware, empty promises and no deliveries ever.
 
Between this and all the other developments going on, Aros is getting (or staying) exciting! Between this and UAE integration thats already working quite nicely, PLUS catweasel support, plus the new 3d graphics, I think aros will be a fantastic amiga ng experience. (it already is if you ask me!)
 
I haven't got a catweasel yet, but I will soon, and I can't wait to be able to read and write amiga floppies on my aros box. That plus everything else thats going on with aros, is very cool. I hope they can port firefox and openoffice too. I'd still like to buy a mac for morphos though...
 
Aros is fast becoming everything I hoped for out of amithlon, but better.
My sincere thanks to all that have contributed.

@JJ

hehe,... what a difference 2 letter can make (OF/FrOm).  :)


@thread
Great news, 68k aros is steaming ahead lately :)
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

We may be anyway :) , but I just donated, and hope other donors get motivated.

Awesome, thanks!

I just gave all I could to the Phase 1 bounty, but before Phase 2 is done, I'll hit that one too.

Yes, the Amiga community and all of it's splintered branches are certainly not what we used to be, very sad.

But, that being said, I also donated more than I could really afford to this bounty, as I think it is worth the money and effort and will benefit the long term survival and/or growth of all Amiga flavors, or maybe it will only benefit AROS users (which I am not one of ......... yet).  

I trust Toni to do a great job which was a motivating factor to donate without any hesitation.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

I know that AROS has helped Morphos and possibly OS4 too.

It seems like a good investment all around.
