Roadshow for 68K -Needs your support!
« on: August 23, 2010, 06:36:13 PM »
Hello all,
   For a few weeks i have been talking with Olaf Barthel about releasing roadshow 68K for the amiga. He seems all for the idea for the most part but would like it if he could sell it for a reasonable price and if anyone would buy it. It would be the only current tcp/ip stack that can be registered/bought etc! His stack is quite a bit faster than both miami and amitcp as it stands,and he said it would be possible to use on 68000 (ala A600 with limited resources).Olaf expressed concern that there were no docs or mui front end currently,but i assured him someone would probabaly step up to make a gui.I think most amigans can get by with limited install docs and such.

If you want to see this happen,please reply to this thread expressing your interest so i have something to show him!

Obviously if people pirate it right off the bat and spread it and he gets no sales,he will be quite disgusted,so lets show some support by buying it,pay for the thing if it happens ok!

I suggested to him he offer it via a web download you can pay with paypal and maybe on CD for those who are want something they can touch :)

So come on everyone,lets get behind this,its not everyday the amiga might see a new,faster tcp/ip stack!

Mike

I would be interested, hopefully he would release cpu-specific versions of the binaries... (for 060)...

Cheers,

Maybe the makers of Natami, FPGAArcade, Minimig improvements, etc, could license it for inclusion for a reasonable fee (per hardware device), and then these classic Amiga implementations would include a TCP/IP stack out of the box.

Hell, yes.  I would love to patronize current Amiga development rather than continue to over-use my Miami registration since Holger apparently does not want my money.

As stated before, I think it would be beneficial to release CPU-specific binaries, unless there is compelling reason otherwise.

Can you provide any reasons as to why there should be anything else than 68000 and 68020 binaries?

Well, actually I can't, 000 version for plain 68K only and 020 version for 020+ is just fine... thanks for the clarification Piru.

i AM interested, as long as it wouldnt cost the world (within 10eur) which is i think fair, but it should have some sorta options gui if it is going to be commercial release.

Olaf has not mentioned any pricing yet,but i expect it to be reasonable.Again this all hinges on the people interested and who are willing to buy it.Just to clarify this uses exhisting SanaII drivers.

A newer network stack for classics would indeed be no bad thing.

I'd pay for this. Would prefer a hard copy CD.

Count me in!  I've been waiting years for this and in fact I have already inquired about it.

It may not add up to much, but with instruction scheduling enabled in the code generator, the '060 binary should do better than the plain '020 binary.
