This is exceptional news! Alas, my Efika will be used till smoke is running out of it! Freaking awesome!

Now if ALL of the next Gen Amigas can get decent MIDI support.

I'm loving how all the iconic Amiga applications are getting regrouped under one umbrella organization.  It also seems smart that if you are selling an AOS4.x machine then you need to have decent and unique applications to run on it that aren't just ports from Linux or Window.  As much as I like Gimp, OpenOffice and Blender, when I can already get them for other platforms it doesn't give me much incentive to use them on the Amiga. The promise of Amiga-only applications like Aladdin4d, ImageFX and OctaMED being optimized and developed under OS4 make me start thinking about getting an OS4 machine.

Excellent news, as this is one one piece of Amiga Software that I still use... Question though, what happened to the PC version?

As I recall, Trevor's remarks at Amiwest on the future of the X1000 (and beyond) was a paradigm shift from hardware to software; it follows the original Amiga concept of, "If you build it, he will come."  Once there is the hardward, the next step forward is the software that brings the Dream to fruition.

Acquiring and redeveloping the great software in the Amiga's past is what will drive the current (and forthcoming) generation of Amigas into the future.  Hence, "You go girl!"

Awesome news!  This was a great program back in the day.

I know there's been much 'hammer bumping' by myself and others, but can you give us any realistic possibility if you will be doing the same for IBrowse?  I'm sure it wouldn't take much, even if you just optimized the code a bit (am sure there have been compiler improvements in the last decade since a version was released), add a couple skins or a wallpaper or something, and bump the version number up by .1, and it would probably sell a couple hundred copies just like that, haha.  ;)

A-EON have stated in the past that they are committed to 68k and have already delivered an updated PPaint.

Bought PPaint and sure will buy this also if they keep developing for 68K.
