AROS One 68k ABI-v1 (v1.1)

AROS One 68k ABI-v1: Update v1.1 my free AROS 68k Distro based on the latest Nightly Builds.
As it happened for « AROS One x86 » also in this new 68k version new applications have been added and some improvements have been made, among the novelties a revisitation of my drawer icons where I added the « Glow » effect in the style of OS3.9 and OS4.

Also Wanderer (Workbench) in AfA-OS style has been improved, now all or almost all the Graphics, Audio, Video, Archives and Documents files have been associated to the most suitable applications.

Another improvement is found on Dopus4, as for Wanderer also Dopus4 can now view many of the most common files even without extension, you can now examine and view many files such as Graphic, Sound, Video or various Documents with the classic Click del Mouse (Double Click and Click-M-Click) or through a Tab.

Among the new applications included in the new release you will find the excellent MultiPlayer V.A.M.P with a new Skin created by me and DAPlayer that allows you to run MOD, XM, S3M, but also MP3.

All the Workbench and Dopus associations are already available also from LiveCD, any operation can be done with the exception of the saves, which can be done if you connect a Pendrive, a MemoryCard or an HD.

AROS One 68k is always distributed on HardFile that can be used on WinUAE or other Amiga Emulators or « burned » on PenDrive, MemoryCard, Real HarDisk or copy its content in a Folder and use it as « DirectoryFilesystem ».

Of course something will have escaped, in case I can still improve according to your needs.

BetterWB release 4.3

BetterWB release 4.3 – 08.02.2018

BetterWB is a new workbench pack, much like AIAB, Amikit, AmigaSYS, ClassicWB, etc. but applying a totally different aproach. It aims to be much like an enhancement, an updated extension to AmigaOS 3.1, without all those hardware requirement penalties typically associated with these kind of packs. It is indeed a better 3.1 than 3.1 itself!

BetterWB best targets:

-Purists that believe anything beyond 3.1 is an overbloated piece of crap
-Low end Amiga computers that are left in storage deprived from any usage, and only regarded as antiques
-Users that refuse to pay big bucks in order to be able to somehow upgrade their Amiga workbench experience
-Minimig users, that are restricted to a 68000 processor
-Anyone that wishes a clean AmigaOS 3.1 like experience 

Advantages:

-Works on any Amiga.
-It occupies less than 10MB on a harddrive
-It is distributed as a set of floppy images
-Its usage is simple and bares a high resemblance to an ordinary 3.1 install

Drawbacks:

-Limited eye candy (but it does not compromise performance)
-Will appear incomplete, for high end or heavily expanded Amiga systems (They are probably better with other workbench packs), that rely on visual appealing components.


Requirements:

Any Amiga computer
Kickstart rom 3.1 (May also work under 3.0)
AmigaOS 3.1 disk set (May also work under 3.0)
About 10MB of storage space on a harddrive
