News originally published on: 25.11.2021 - 11:42

Many Amiga users still don't know of the Amiga Future magazine. Sadly, all the events and fairs where you could have met magazine staff and looked through an Amiga Future issue have been cancelled this year. That's why we decided to offer you some sample issues.

We want you to become familiar with the magazine and feel the benefits it has to offer, so we hope you will consider ordering a subscription to the Amiga Future magazine.

Anyway, you can order a sample issue of the Amiga Future from our online shop for only 1 cent plus shipping costs. We are sure you understand that we need to charge shipping costs, as we're a hobby publisher. [...]

A1200_keyb_MPU: DIY replacement for A1200 keyboard MPU

Published 22.11.2021 - 08:39 by osz

A1200_keyb_MPU: DIY replacement for A1200 keyboard MPU

The Motorola 68HC05 is a microcontroller that is used in the Amiga 1200 under the chip designation 391508-01 to control the keyboard. If this chip breaks, a replacement must be found. Since the prices for these chips are now increasing more and more, Oleg Mishin would like to ensure a more cost-effective replacement with his project A1200_keyb_MPU. The project consists of a tiny circuit board on which some components are soldered, which itself is soldered to the mainboard instead of the original chip. Its heart is the 8-bit microcontroller ATMEGA324PB-20MU, which can be programmed using an STK500 programmer on an ISP interface and AVRdude, for example. With a little manual work and manual skill, you can get a replacement chip as a do-it-yourself project that requires neither a quartz nor a voltage monitoring IC to operate and can be updated in terms of software in the future.

The A1200_keyb_MPU project by Oleg Mishin is located as a GitHub repository at the following address:

hURL 1.2 released

Published 21.11.2021 - 15:44 by AndreasM

Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are back on your screen with a major update of hURL - the ultimate multi-protocol data transfer plugin for Hollywood which allows Hollywood scripts to transfer data using all kinds of different network protocols including full SSL support. Version 1.2 is a major update that now supports Hollywood 9's extended network adapter so that Hollywood's DownloadFile() and UploadFile() functions can now handle all protocols supported by hURL instead of just HTTP. This makes it much easier to use hURL because you often don't have to use hURL's lowlevel interface any longer but can just use DownloadFile() or UploadFile().

hURL supports an incredibly wide range of transfer protocols, e.g. DICT, FILE, FTP, FTPS, Gopher, HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, LDAP, LDAPS, POP3, POP3S, RTMP, RTSP, SCP, SFTP, SMB, SMBS, SMTP, SMTPS, Telnet and TFTP. As with all Hollywood plugins, hURL comes with extensive documentation in various formats like PDF (over 300 pages!), HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM that contains detailed descriptions about all functions and methods offered by the plugin.

All of this makes hURL the ultimate data transfer tool for Hollywood that contains everything you need to send and receive data via almost any transfer protocol on the planet. [...]
