Amiga & AROS "Hyperion Entertainment VOF is pleased to announce the immediate availability for download for registered customers of another service update of Amiga OS 4.0 which addresses some outstanding issues and introduces substantial new functionality." There's a new kernel, better POSIX support, a new Python port, newer USB stack, and more. By the way, the promised hardware still has not arrived.

That used to be the problem, but unfortunately the hold up now is the question of the legal ownership of OS4 + Amiga trademarks. There's plently of (potentially) compatible OS4 hardware available right now.

The secret legal wranglings seem to be what's really held up the system for the last few years, but it's mostly out in the open now. The only thing we can do is wait for the current court case to blow over, and then see who really owns and/or has rights to what.

My personal opinion is that once it's all sorted out, if Hyperion win, I expect we'll see a release of OS4 for the SAM440EP almost immediately. If Amiga Inc. wins, then who knows. My guess is that they'll either sell everything wholesale to the highest bidder, or it'll sit in a filing cabinet for the next 20 years.
