Amiga & AROS AmigaOS 4.1 update 5 has been released. It's a bug-fix release, but does contain new features as well. For instance, Amiga 68K emulation has been improved, and a full Workbench 3.1 installation is now included, as well as several authentic Amiga ROMs and Workbench files. Available for free for eligible platforms, including SAM devices.

I do not think you understand, or you are willfully ignorant. Haage owns the amiga os 3* outright and all previous versions by purchase from commodore. They are literally waiting for microsoft, google and apple to reach the golden limit of infringements to the IP. No they did not buy the development rights they bought the OS. And with it all the software patents that came with it.
If they went now, some would be invalidated by previous works, and the turnout would not be as great. I do not know what Haage considers golden, but they WILL hunt down those patents eventually. They are still the owners of accelerated animation patents that could sink any relevant company atm. The only way to win against that is to prove that it was the hardware that did all of it and the amigaos had nothing to do with it.

We are looking at either a buyout or license fee for those patents.
