Software News : AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition Available Before the End of 2014

Brussels, October 27, 2014

Hyperion Entertainment is pleased to announce the imminent availability of "AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition" for all supported platforms.

AmigaOS 4.1 was released in September of 2008 and has seen no less than 6 free major updates and at least 88 smaller updates released through AmiUpdate.

New functionality in AmigaOS 4.1 Final Update includes but is not limited to:

Extended memory functionality (beneficial for all supported platforms even those platforms which cannot be equipped with more than 2GB)
Most powerful console for AmigaOS
New Intuition features
New Workbench features
Much improved DOS
New unified graphics library with RTG support which allows for (current and future) very substantial general and platform specific performance optimizations e.g. through the use of on-chip DMA engines (present on recently released hardware going back to the Sam440)
Updated Python port
Installation graphics, new icons and back-drops by Martin Merz
Countless minor updates, new other functionality and bug-fixes.

AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition requires NO previous version of AmigaOS 4.x and is a stand-alone product, quite possibly the most affordable version of AmigaOS ever to be released.

This now allows current users of AmigaOS 4.1 to install a complete original version of AmigaOS 4.1 without subsequently needing to download or apply 6 updates and countless minor updates.

Users are nevertheless recommended to register their copy of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition on the Hyperion Entertainment website as this will be required for downloading possible future updates and bug fixes.

An updated SDK for developers which exposes all new OS functionality to developers, is being worked on.

Hyperion Entertainment wishes to thank all those developers and contributors who have furthered AmigaOS development over the years and especially those that have worked tirelessly on delivering "AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition" to customers before the end of 2014.

Our thanks go out to all of our supporters and loyal customers who can rest assured that work on AmigaOS 4.2 is ongoing apace albeit somewhat behind schedule due to the fact that substantial time had to be allocated for supporting new upcoming exciting hardware platforms. We appreciate your support!

AmigaOS Final Edition has gone gold and is in production at this time.

Suggested retail price is 29,95 EUR (SRP includes German VAT, may vary depending on your location).

What does that mean for X1000 Customers? We got a Beta OS4.1 and "a license for a free download of AmigaOS 4.2 from Hyperion Entertainment when it is officially released". Will we get 4.1 Final for free because it's still beta for the x1000? Do we need to buy 4.1 Final and get 4.2 for free when it's ready? Or is the free 4.2 license replaced by a free 4.1 Final license?

AFAIU if X1000 users want this interim OS release they have to pay for it just like everyone else. This does not change the fact that they will receive version 4.2 for free when it's released.

Cowabonga :) I want it noooow Some questions. For a new user its enough with this final release ? I mean he dont need to have the old 4.1 release ?. If so its very nice price and mos, classic etc users can do ports of their software and test on their machines like peg2 etc. The other question. For an x1000 user i also have to pay for it ? I dont have any problems with that just checking so i know if i have to order it later when released.
