WinUAE 3.0 with PowerPC Support

Toni Wilen has released WinUAE 3.0 that adds support, among other things, for PowerPC support.  This does enable the ability to run Amiga OS 4.0 PPC, AmigaOS 4.1 Classic PPC, and likely AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition under emulation.

You can download WinUAE from the WinUAE site.

Note: You will need copies of Blizzard or Cyberstorm PPC ROMS and the rom image for a Picasso IV.  Please obtain those legally.

Support for WinUAE is on the English Amiga Board, here.

AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition now shipping!

Brussels, December 18, 2014

Hyperion Entertainment is thrilled to announce shipment of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition to dealers has been started. This means that the first customers will get their own copy of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition right before christmas, just in time to put it underneath the christmas tree.

Since the initial release of AmigaOS 4.1 more than six years ago, functionality and user experience have been steadily improved by six free major updates and over 88 free smaller ones through AmiUpdate. AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition defines the new baseline by consolidating all previous updates, bringing new long awaited features and stability improvements and last but not least enabling the user to make a clean installation in one go. Additionally it comes professionally produced as full version on physical media in a nice DVD box, together with a booklet containing installation instruction as well as a little extra for only EUR 29.95 suggested retail price (incl. VAT, may very on your location).

AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition is currently available for:

  • AmigaOne XE, SE and MicroA1
  • AmigaOne X1000
  • AmigaOne 500/Sam460
  • Sam440
