Hyperion Entertainment CVBA is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the AmigaOS 3.1.4(.1) Release Notes and the Locale Extras 45.315.

AmigaOS 3.1.4 was released on 30th September 2018, its free update 3.1.4.1 was released on the 8th July 2019. Since then, we have received numerous requests from users asking us to unveil the technical developer notes, also known as "Release Notes", regarding the changes involved in those AmigaOS updates.

Thanks to the efforts of the Localization team, we are happy to provide the Locale Extras 45.315 which includes localization materials for greek, polish and russian languages that require additional system setup to work.

At Hyperion, we felt we should do no less but honor our customers' pleas by making these packages available to let them gain a more in depth overview of the magnitude of changes and the amount of hard work done by the AmigaOS 3.1.4 development team that went into those releases. And as an added bonus, enable further AmigaOS support for our customers in their native languages.

We would like to take the opportunity to express our gratitude for the continued interest received regarding our AmigaOS 68k product line, which encourages us to fulfill our commitment to deliver even more exciting products which we will be proud to announce in the near future.

AmigaOS 3.1.4(.1) Release Notes are available for free from our download area for any interested party. The Locale Extras 45.315 are available to registered customers.

Hyperion Entertainment CVBA wants to send kudos to the entire Amiga commmunity for making AmigaOS the success it is. Thanks guys!

Cool, at last...

What these notes indicate is that there are tons of little updates, tons of little changes, tons of little bugs, both new and old, and that many of the components live their own lives (which btw is is good thing), and that what ends up being "a release" (3.1.4, 3.1.4.1) is a bit arbitrary for a lot of the components.

A comment in the updates regarding SetPatch' removal of ROMUpdates says
Quote
It is suggested that users replace it by a separate invocation by "LoadModule AUTO", or by a custom ROM

Custom ROMs are prohibited by "The Software license" (".. you may not decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, modify .."), so I suggest Hyperion at long last fix their licenses to match f*in reality already.

Would be nice if those releasenotes get integrated into Amigawiki.org or wiki.amigaos.net or something.
