"Newer" Cloanto Workbench Disks
« on: April 11, 2015, 09:48:28 PM »
Since I can't get an answer from Cloanto or Amigakit, here is my question:
 
Does anyone know if the Amiga Forever 2014 workbench 3.1 ADF's are the same as the "updated" workbench 3.1 floppies made by Cloanto and sold by Amigakit? I posted this same question to both Cloanto and Amigakit and got no response.
 
Thanks

Since the AF 2014 changelogs don't mention it, and the updated WB disks have been released quite some time later, I'd guess the answer is "no".

Most of the updated parts are available for free download though:

Unless you need FastFileSystem 45.9 (use SFS instead, it's way better), you don't need the updated set, IMHO.

Other than the user and 3rd party efforts like BetterWB, I wasn't aware of any updated 3.1 disks, especially not from licensed sources.  Hasn't 3.1 been the same since its release over 20 years ago?

What is the scope and nature of the updates?

Changes listed on Amigakit:

"Changes and updates from Commodore version:

  Updated C/Version (Y2K patch)
  Addition of Libs/workbench.library (for A-4000T 3.1 ROMs and 3.X ROMs)
  Updated S/Startup-Sequence (for 3.X ROMs)
  Updated Installer 44.10 and FastFileSystem 45.9 (to support larger disks)
  Installer itself is now part of the system installation (inside the Utilities directory)."
