Minimig PCBs shipping worldwide

Amiga news
Written by Tibor Endredy   
Thursday, 27 September 2007
Nusim Limited started to manufacture and ship bare Minimig PCBs. With some SMD soldering skills now nearly anybody can make a Minimig at home.

The Minimig (Mini Amiga) is an open source re-implementation of an Amiga 500 using a field-programmable gate array (FPGA). The project was started in 2005 by a Dutch electrical engineer Dennis van Weeren. The Minimig motherboard has an MMC slot for flash memory cards and can run ADF games, demos, apps directly from it.

We hope that soon the public will also get fully assembled Minimigs too.

A new version of the Amiga emulator WinUAE for Windows has been released.
WinUAE 1.4.4 (22.09.2007)
===================

New features:
- major directory filesystem emulation update:
* removable drive automounting on the fly (USB memory, USB HD, memory
cards, any removable drive that mounts as a drive letter in Windows)
* drag'n'drop directory/archive automount
* more missing filesystem packets supported (including ACTION_EXAMINE_ALL)
- major "Add Harddrive" uaehf.device update:
* removable drives (real harddrives, x-in-one memory card readers, zip drives,
etc..) supported on the fly
* configured drive but no media or [USB] drive not connected when emulation
was started: automounted when inserted (no RDB automount yet)
* empty drives listed in "Add Harddrive" dialog.
- X-Power Professional v1.3 and Nordic Power v1.5 support
- Pro-Wizard module ripper updated to v1.62
- hq2x filter added.
- Added two basic A4000 quickstart configurations.

- Better compatibility with OS 3.1 and older HDToolbox versions.
- CD32 statefile support works again.

New drivers for Catweasel
(1 vote)
Amiga news

Monday, 17 September 2007
New drivers for the Catweasel controller have been released.
The most important change of the recent release of the Win32 drivers for the Catweasel are visible in the imagetool, which now supports many new disk formats and has new graphical functions. After a long wait, the Apple floppy formats of older Macintosh computers (400KByte and 800KByte per disk) and the Apple IIe series are now supported. Two more formats of Commodore classics can now be read, but this requires special disk drives with 100tpi. Regular floppy drives have a track spacing of 96tpi, so there will be read errors on most of the tracks of Commodore 8050 or SFD1001 disks.

As always, the new drivers are free, and they still contain the routines required for operation with the oldest Catweasel models. We're asking our customers who are still using these controllers to carefully test these drivers with the old hardware, as we are only testing with the latest PCI models of the controller.
