Amiga & AROS It seems like only yesterday, but in fact it's already six months ago. July last year, we published our review of AmigaOS 4.1 running on ACube's sam440ep motherboard, and here we are, six months later, and Hyperion has released AmigaOS 4.1 Update 1. This free update brings with it quite a number of new features, and since I still have the sam440ep on my desk, I could test the new features first-hand.

Amiga was not developed steadily in the past due to a series of unfortunate events, so don't take that as an example of what's to come (Hyperion feared that they might lose their work and development was intermittent to say the least).
Right now things have changed and after the lawsuit settlement it will be pedal to the metal, with a ton of modern features taking the place of old ones all the time.
A note on the looks: they are extremely customizable, and there is an ongoing project at entwickler-x website to improve it quite a bit.
Mine looks like this (no window is selected):

Woah, translucent windows! Is it real? Can this really be done? In real-time?

I call shenanigans. It's science-fiction. There's no way it's a real screenshot.
