Mailsystem reorganized
2018-06-12:
We have migrated our complete mailsystem and all communication problems should be a thing of the past.

In the last years it sadly occured on and off, that our mailserver got listed at some few blacklists and our mails thus went into your spamfolders or in some few cases got directly discarded by your mailservers. On the one hand this was due to the atari.org mailadress which was not configured correctly (SPF, which was previously not needed for years). On the other hand there are indeed some competences missing to configure the Linux machine correctly on which the firebee.org mail server was running. The system was adoped from now inactive people and despite great efforts the problems could not be solved.

Additionally atari-home.de cancelled all their mail services (presumably because of the new GDPR) by end of May, and thus our former fallback mailadress is now not available anymore.

Thus we have decided with a heavy heart three weeks ago to migrate the entire mail system to a commercial provider. Sadly we did not succeed in finding a non-commercial bearable solution. Thus our options are now in fact constricted, and also quite expensive, but the communication problems of the past are dispelled. Now no mails should be ignored inside your spam folders anymore!

For establishing contacts please use from now on exclusively:

acpinfo at firebee dot org

If you lately go the feeling that you did not get an answer form us, do not hesitate to contact us again. The answers will now reach you reliably and the handling of the receivable shippings will thus be facilitated a lot.

Our thank goes to atari.org and atari-home.de who bestowed support on us for years free of charge.

Shipping and new Orders
2018-05-30:
About the situation and availability of the hardware

In recent weeks, we have seen a noticeable increase in pre-order with sometimes unsolicited remittances from "new customers". We would like to clarify again the current situation.

The 2nd series of FireBees is currently sold out. We have been delivering them for some time now (unfortunately very slowly). All new orders are placed on a waiting list. In case of withdrawals during the shipping process, the machines will be assigned according to this list. In addition, binding pre-orders are of interest for a possible further series of FireBees. The more people pre-order the more likely such a series will be produced in the future. An early delivery will not be possible for new customers.

The normal procedure is to ...

FireBee on GitHub
2018-04-16:
After some long months with no public access to our Firebee sources, we finally moved everything to GitHub.

Since last summer the situation with Atariforge became more and more unstable. Sadly the AtariForge services seem not to come back in time anymore. Nevertheless we like to thank Rob Mahlert for the years of support he gave for free to the community. Now everything we got is collected and online again at GitHub. Special thanks goes to Miro Kropáček and David Gálvez who cared about that non-acceptable situation, and uploaded everything to the new repository at GitHub that Markus Fröschle created some months ago. Gladly Mikro had a full AtariForge backup for us, and also every new developments from 2017 are online now. Including several new FPGA and BaS developments which binaries we will publish in the upcoming weeks and ...

FB-Basic icon set 1.54 update
2018-02-26:
Just after the FB-Basic 1.50 major release, a minor upgrade for the FB-Basic icon set for Teradesk is arrived.

This "quick fix" release solves a few issues: some icons not included in 1.50 were added, the default HD was renamed to "hard disc" to comply with Teradesk’s naming rules and 2 duplicate icons were deleted. To keep compatibility with old teradesk.inf configuration files, a new experimental "harddisk" icon was added to the set. Finally, the teradesk.inf file was updated to reflect changes in the cicons.rsc file.

Firebee.org Server Problems
2018-01-28:
Sadly the project is facing bigger server issues at the moment. Since last Thursday the domain firebee.org is not accessible and our mailboxes are not reachable.

Today it turned out that this is a serious problem, that might take another week or two to get solved. Our admins are working at the problem.

We like to assure you that the ACP is still active, and that we try to get back completely online as soon as possible. In the meantime you can access firebee.org by the IP adress http://84.20.240.129/fb-bin/ and reach us by our fallback mailadress acpinfo (at) atari-home (dot) de

MyAES 0.97 and patches
2018-01-12:
On the 30th of July 2017, Olivier Landemarre distributed MyAES 0.97.

It took almost three years, way more than initially planned, for Oliver to release the new version of MyAES. The MyAES kernel went trought an extensive review process: new features were added and various parts of the code were significantly reworked to improve the overall performance and compatibility. Just to name a few improvements:
- the multitasking management was revised;
- a new management of the windows/desktop redraws and a a new program configuration manager were added;
- a new video memory manager and AES call;
- The Yopla task manager and the MDesk desktop (although still at info level) were also improved;
- the background image is automatically resized.
But the full list of improvements and fixes is way longer. ...

Permanent Up-To-Date-FreeMiNT for the FireBee
2017-04-24:
As already announced we have some real great news. The last months Miro Kropáček worked extremely hard to catapult the FreeMiNT project into the 21st century.

FreeMiNT is now developed with with usage of git. The version control system leads to many many nice features for development and collaborative work on software. Beside this it has some huge advantages for the FireBee project as well. The main improvement is the integration of Travis CI into git(hub). Travis CI is a build service which offers building for free for any open source project, including ours. Thanks to github integration it all works completely autonomously. That means we got now an permanentely up to date FreeMiNT for the FireBee. As soon as any developer is contributing something to FreeMiNT or fixing any bug, Travis CI is automatically creating new updated binaries for the endusers. That leads to the satisfieing ...
