Farewell, Dave :(

Brussels, February 21, 2016
Dave Needle, 2011

With deepest regret we learnt that Dave Needle passed away on February 20, 2016.

As most of you know, Dave was one of the original engineers who created the AMIGA in the team around Jay Miner. Without people like Dave we would never have been able to feel the joy of a real personal computer.

The management of Hyperion Entertainment CVBA and the whole team behind AmigaOS offer their sincere condolences to family Needle and wish them a lot of strength and all the best.
We all will sadly miss Dave.

In addition to the binary license, Hyperion will grant Individual Computers access to the source code  of the IDE driver for further development  which may facilitate installation of AmigaOS 4.1 and beyond.

The first product to make use of this license will be the entry-level accelerator for Amiga  500 called "ACA500": With both Kickstart images in the flashrom of this product,the user will benefit from best compatibility with floppy-based and harddisk-based software.

New AmigaOne firmware available

Leuven, Belgium - October 6th 2004.

In preparation for the upcoming update of Amiga OS 4.0, Hyperion Entertainment is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the much improved U-Boot 1.1.1 for AmigaOne SE and XE motherboards.

New features include:

  • Support for multiple graphics cards. At this time the last graphics card (usually the AGP card) is used for primary display. Later versions will include an option to choose.
  • Support for booting off a Silicon Image 0680 IDE controller. This feature has to be selected manually at the moment, by entering setenv ide sii from the U-Boot shell.
  • New CPU support: IBM PowerPC 750GX is now fully supported.
  • A problem has been fixed that made the U-Boot environment settings unavailable when rebooting from Linux.
  • Support for LBA48 IDE Drives, i.e. you can now boot off drives that are bigger than 160 GB.
  • Support for the new Second-Level Bootloader (that can boot Linux besides AmigaOS), to be distributed with the upcoming AmigaOS 4 update.
  • Numerous bug fixes and improvements.

The new U-Boot will be required for the upcoming update of Amiga OS 4.0, to be released shortly to registered AmigaOS 4.0 pre-Release owners.

The download is available in our Downloads section.
