Amiga 34 felt important so I wrote a report and reflected a bit about what it might all mean. It also has nice pictures. So click-click & enjoy! :)

--> Amiga 34 Report and Discussion <--

Thanks for this very detailed write-up! A lot of Amiga info that I was not aware of. Of particular to me was this section.

The widely-used P96 library for graphics-card/RTG support is under a similar difficult situation that finally deserves to be unlocked. Actors here are Cloanto and Individual Computers. Cloanto continues to produce their Amiga Forever emulation package (also handed out as a free download goodie to every visitor of Amiga 34, and free for everyone in exchange for your email-adress and willingness to receive news from Cloanto and Heise Medien) with an included version of P96 for a high resolution Workbench 3.x display. Individual Computers claims to have acquired the full legal rights to P96 from their original authors Abt & Kneer, including one existing licencing agreement for OS4.1 with Hyperion, and subsequently freed the P96 API from former NDA clauses. The ongoing conflicts about P96 and the OS with Cloanto reportedly caused the former sponsor of Amiga Germany events, Individual Computers, to step down as sponsor as they did not wish to line up with Cloanto (read the linked press releases #1 and #2 for more details).

Is this offer available for anyone?

Yes, the offer is available to anyone in exchange for providing a working email-address.

In fact, it is kind of sad that you get copies of licenced Amiga stuff in exchange for signing up to a mailing-list (boosting licenced user-numbers?). While at the same time, parties battle in court about the IP.
