Memory protection?

Do AmigaOS have memory protection now?

I know that the original AmigaOS didn't have it (not surprising as the original 68000 CPU didn't have MMU), I hope that this version has memory protection: in this age I can't imagine using an OS without memory protection..

It’s not something switched on by default due to compatibility problems with older software (that Amiga users rightly cling on to). I believe that it’s hoped that over time the necessary code will be put in to allow the memory protection to be on by default.
