MediaVault 1.4.3 is out
Published 21.10.2021 - 08:42 by osz
We recently reported that MediaVault 1.4.1 was released for AmigaOS 4: https://www.amigafuture.de/app.php/news ... s_id=39281
George Sokianos has now made two updates. In version 1.4.2 a bug was fixed which, after changing the API for radio stations, had broken the search for them. Version 1.4.3 was the last version at the time these lines were written and was compiled with version 1.1.1l of OpenSSL. In addition, two bugs in the search have been fixed: The search for popular podcasts if neither country nor category was selected and the search for radio stations if you only selected the country should now work again. The start_player script has also been corrected.
All information in detail and the download is available from the project's GitHub repository: https://github.com/walkero-gr/mediavaul ... tag/v1.4.3

OpenSwitcher: A DIY microcontroller based drive switcher
Published 17.10.2021 - 20:32 by osz
About a month ago, a project in two different versions appeared on GitHub, which should make the hearts of hobbyists beat faster.
OpenSwitcher and OpenSwitcher 1200 are basically one project for different Amiga models. OpenSwitcher 1200 is aimed at owners of an Amiga 600 or Amiga 1200, while OpenSwitcher is aimed at friends of the Amiga 500. But what is this about?
Under the designation Drive Switcher, Drive Selector or Boot Selector there are some, sometimes more, sometimes less complex projects that enable switching between DF0 and DF1 as a floppy drive. OpenSwitcher is supposed to be different and of high quality and promises to be easily soldered together from easily available parts and also easily programmed. The firmware can be transferred to the finished OpenSwitcher directly via USB instead of using a special programmer device. [...]
