How strange. Usually people are reading between the lines and filling the gaps with all sorts of fascinating fiction. ;)

@all
Seriously though, I am willing to answer any questions. This is a limited time offer because I need to get back to shipping a couple of important projects: X5000 and A1222. I don't have a lot of time for web forums these days.

I've heard you have some sort of post 4.2 road map. Can you tell us something about what it contains? :)

Great to see the open discussions we had at the show about all NG systems! Will this continue, I sure hope so. This is what we need as a community since merging is out of the question.

i forgot to ask you this before i left, so i'll do here: what's the longterm plan for improving the printing architecture for AOS4? currently i can use modern printers, but only if they're postscript. the third-party photosmart driver also helps, but i max out at 600dpi.

is there any possibility of integrating something like CUPS?

Any plans for an updated network stack/library? That means updated bsdsocket.library/SANA-II/Roadshow. Maybe some low level stuff like setting speed/duplex/auto-negotiation on/off (via the driver).

Related: X1000 NIC driver? The legend tells there's one but that it has some nasty bug. Any more info regarding that?

Hi,


 1) Regarding A-Eon ALICE project, is Hyperion plan to increase the RAM & GFX memory of OS4 Classic ?


2) Why AmiUpdate is no more used to deliver OS4 updates ?


Thank you, by advance, for your reply

Do you plan on releasing info on some of the internal APIs so the the users can contribute in hardware support ? I'm thinking about the processor HAL and the Picasso driver API.

Hi Steven!
Thank you for that nice thread.
One simple question... we can see x5000 AND Tabor with OS4.x in action before Xmass?

Ireally think that many of us here was wondering how much that two system can do...

Thank you! I really think that since you are here communication from OS4 developers and community was better.

Steven,

Does the X5000 have the same Xorro + PCIe X1 slot setup?

Has there been any talks about a proper proto board for the slot?

Thank You.

Steve isn't needed to answer that, its got an 'X' prefix, so yes its got a Xena slot.

BTW Steve - We really are interested in getting some benchmarks on the X5000.
Looks to be the most capable PPC board thus far introduced for our market.

As for Tabor, the initial bench results (once OS4 runs on it) may be lower than could be generated once the fpu trapping/emulation software has matured.

AND, I want an X5000/040, so...

Hi,
I have another question
-Thore and Jens allow all user to test OS4 MUI4 beta builds at their own risks. Why not do the same and allow ALL users to test OS4 beta builds ?
 
As you said, OS4 is a hobby for OS4 devs too, therefore it's normal that dev is slow but it could allow the standard users to have fix without to have to wait sometimes 1 year between beta fix availability and public availability.
 
Thank you

@ssolie

- is the work done under the hood to implement multicore will allow a better memory protection if not full?
-I read that AEON is planning also a wiki, will you give them the dev docs for classics system since they're looking for dev to program new stuff for this systems?
