AmigaONE X5000 review published on Ars Technica
AmigaONE X5000 review on Ars Technica
A new review of the AmigaONE X5000 machine has been published on the
massive technology related news site, Ars Technica.

I was asked to contribute some general information about the Xena chip
on these machines to Jeremy Reimer, the author of the article. He had
to trim down the Xena information quite a bit to fit his publisher's
requirements, but he was nice enough to include a direct link to my
Xena Research Project Blog. He even almost spelled my last name correctly. ;-)

Thanks to Jeremy Reimer for writing the review, and a big thanks to
the guys at Amiga On The Lake for providing the X5000 machine
for Jeremy to use for the article.

The Xena Research Project Blog - A new series

Xena Research Project Blog

The first article in my new Blog series on developing for the Xena and Xorro
has just been published on the Amiga On The Lake website (see the link below).

This series will chronicle my research and development into the XMOS programmable
multi-core microcontroller "The Xena Chip", that is present on the AmigaONE X1000
and X5000 machines. I will be discussing what this new hardware is and how to
develop for it.

The results of this effort will go into integrating visual programming of
Xena chip into AVD, which all owners of the commerical AVD suite will
have included for free.

Amiga On The Lake adds BITbyBIT Software Group to AOTL Donations

Amiga On The Lake
US based Amiga Retailer "Amiga On The Lake" is breaking new ground in supporting the Amiga developer community with their AOTL Donations plan. Amiga On The Lake is generously matching all donations they gather by 20%, and sending 100% of those funds directly to a small (but growing) group of Amiga developers.

Equally generously, they have now added BITbyBIT Software Group to the list of supported developers in Group 1 to help further the development of the FreeAVD project and its components: The SDK Browser [FREEWARE Edition], the AVD Template, and of course the FreeAVD Suite itself.

Personally, I am thrilled to have a new Amiga retail store back in the United States again!

Thanks Guys!
