Not sure what Fishy_Fis is putting into this lite version.  I would guess Wookiechat, Lunapaint, scum, and obviously a mp3 player.  I would guess EUAE will be included as well.

I applaud AROS, however I have to say I'm not terribly impressed with the screenshot.  The colour scheme and theme look decided 1998, while the mismatched font selection reminds me of AmigaSYS.

As I say, AROS is absolutely terrific, however the screenshot doesn't really 'sell the sizzle', so to speak.

Cheers,
James

Is that an iconified DOpus4 in the screenborder? Has UAE integration been completed or has DOpus just been recompiled?

Hi everyone. Firstly Id like to point out that the screenshot posted here isnt new, and things have progressed since. The look is more consitent, glitches fixed, and some graphics have changed. What you see here is roughly the look Ive been after, its just been a bit more polished since.

@Matt_H
Yes it is Dopus iconified. Native, not 68k.

@anyone who's interested

Velocity Lite will contain: (amongst other stuff)

E-UAE
ScummVM
WookieChat
MaranoFTP
Hively Tracker
AROSAmp
MurksIDE
GCC Development Environment (usable via MurksIDE and shell)
Directory Opus
Vice
LunaPaint
Quake
Doom

.... and more (I dont want to give everything away)  :-)
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.

UAE Integration is still months away from the bounty's dead line.

@fishy_fiz, I saw in AE that Genesis Plus has been ported, maybe include that in the distro and in the next screenshot ?
