Amiga & AROS In a discussion on Amiga forum site The Amigans, the Friedens twin brothers (developers of AmigaOS 4.0 exec kernel) revealed that the complete Amiga OS architecture will move ahead to a new design. The new AmigaOS (let's call it AmigaOS 4+1) will include some sort of virtual environment in which old (AmigaOS 4.0) applications will run as separate tasks, in their own address space. MorphOS, an Amiga-like operating system, employs a similar method to allow for compatibility with older Amiga 3.x applications. AmigaWorld of course also discusses the matter.

looking at what you say about JKFF, it's obvious you don't have a clue what this software is.

i'll explain it to you:

it's a system wide patch, that patch amigaos font rendering system to allow displaying and inputing Japanese on amiga.
it have nothing to do with notepad or ibrowse in particular. it works system wide. so even shell, menu, filenames and folders (incidentaly ibrowse and notepad too) , just everything can display japanese with JKFF installed.

but in no way it helps with lack of utf8 support on Amiga. it's only used to display and input Japanese and Japanese only. and it doesn't work on os4.
