New Compatible Amiga A500(+) Cases Project

A1200.net Compatible Case For Amiga A500(+)

I am happy once again to support great Amiga related efforts like this one.
The fantasic team at A1200.net are back with another project to build
new replacement cases for the very popular A500 and A500+ systems.

So far I have put in for four new cases to update/repair four A500 systems
I have on the shelf waiting for new cases (and new keycaps). However, I am
also looking at adding a Vampire SE case to my order, dedicated for a future
Vampire standalone system. :-)

So far the campaign is off to a great start, hitting over $45,000 USD in the
first week, and after my pledge today they are now at $52,091 USD out of the
$155,000 USD they need to have the molds built and produce the new cases!

There are a few weeks to go, but they need your help to make it. So, if you
want a shiny new case for your A500 or A500+, or just a slick "wedge/keyboard
computer" case for some cool system project, then please consider joining
the 266 other backers and make this project a reality!

The new A500(+) case project can be found on IDIEGOGO here:

Also, as I annouced for them at AmiWest 2017, Amiga On the Lake (AOTL)
is now the exclusive reseller of all A1200.net products for North America.
This means that if this A500(+) case campaign succeeds, new replacement
cases of the A500 and A500+ will be available as a stock item, and that
is good for the growth of the entire Amiga community).

(That is of course the other reason for supporting these campaigns, not just to
get a cool case yourself, but to enable these cases to continue being produced
after the initial production run.)

SDK Browser v2.1.4.0 Released - Finally getting to updating my website

  • Finally taking a few moments to update my website for the new year and package up the
    maintenance release of the SDK Browser(v2.1.4.0), which I put together at the AmiWest
    DevCon back in October of 2017.

    For those of you that attended the AmiWest 2017 DevCon you should already have this
    version. However, I recommend downloading the newly posted one because it has been
    updated with matching README text, etc. Of course, if you own a registered copy of
    the SDK Browser, you may download your personalized version from your private download
    link.

    Equally, owners of the AVD Suite may also download their version of the SDK Browser
    under the Members Only page.

  • I have been very busy, since before the AmiWest show, working on various AmigaONE
    and AmigaOS4 related projects with the guys at AOTL.

    Hence my delay in making this post today. However, while we are working on foundation
    products and fun new hardware and software projects for the AmigaONE machines, development
    on AVD and it's components has not been forgotten. The GUI Builder is my primary focus
    as the next AVD component to be released. It will be released as a standalone product,
    as part of the FreeAVD Suite, and of course as a major part of the AVD Suite.

    As always I appreciate your support and patience for this long term project.
    Thanks to your support, and the support of Amiga On The Lake as a full time
    patron of my efforts, I have been able to work exclusively on developing
    Amiga related products for over six months now, and with luck should be able
    to continue to do so throughout all of 2018.

  • Releasing the source code of the SDK Browser:
    For anyone who read my 2017 posting about the AmiWest show, or who was there
    in person, you know that a very good friend of mine passed away while I was
    attending the show. As a tribute to my friend's memory, I announced that I would
    be releasing the entire source code for the SDK Browser to Open Source as a
    teaching tool on how to write software for AmigaOS4.

    As planned I will be releasing the full source code for the current version
    of the SDK Browser (v2.1.4.0 - FREEWARE Edition). In order to accomplish this
    I must first decouple the source from the rest of the AVD Suite.

    This is a larger task then it sounds since the AVD Suite is designed to be
    highly integrated with the other components of AVD. Therefore I have decided
    to wait until the commercial version of the SDK Browser v3.0.0.0 is released
    before taking the time to prepare v2.1.4.0 FREEWARE Edition for release
    as Open Source.

  • This certainly has been a very active and fun year for me working on Amiga
    related research and development full time again.
