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 ...

New Version of TosWin2
2017-03-11:
Today we are publishing a new "unofficial" version of the console "TosWin2".

The program was sadly very buggy the last years and drove some of us mad. Gladly during the preparations for an updated official FreMiNT-Setup for the FireBee, Miro Kropáček started to eleminate all the bugs of the program. Now the automatically opening if desired of the console at output of the operating system works, which often filled the desktop previously. All possible adjustments inside the program are working now solidly. Especially interresting is that the logging, means writing all output to a textfile, now works likewise very well, what simplyfies possible bugreports by users.

As TosWin2 is developed inside the FreeMiNT project, this is a an unofficial preliminary version. However you can directly and immediatly replace the old TosWin2 at ...

AHCC 5.5
2017-01-30:
On January and as almost every six months, Henk Robbers has released a new version of its AHCC development environment.

For the record, AHCC (A Home Cooked Compiler C) is an Open-Source development environment that aims to be fully compatible with Pure C, very popular on Atari but sadly unavailable. The approach of AHCC is to create some Atari programs that can work, with the same binary, on all the processors, from 020 up to 060 including the ColdFires.

Henk Robbers is developing further AHCC extremely consequently and reliably. And this for years. By the fact of the open sources, all the work is in future usable and no existence-endangering relationship of dependence can evolve anymore. Furthermore AHCC is splendidly proper for even coding at the "small" original Ataris.

Mail system and server infrastructure
2016-12-30:
During the first week of January 2017, our server will go offline for a few days because it will be set up from scratch again.

That means that our mailboxes acpinfo (at) atari (dot) org and acpinfo (at) firebee (dot) org won't be available during that time. The same goes for the domain firebee.org as our public mailinglist. This is a planned and temporary downtime! Don't panic! ;) As usual, you will always be able to reach this website through the IP address, http://84.20.240.129.

Thanks to Swiftconsult who once again generously supported us, we now also have acpinfo (at) atari-home (dot) de available as a fallback mail address. You will always be able to reach us through this address.

During the downtime in the first week of January, the other mail addresses won't work anymore. The reason is that we currently have pretty big ...

EmuTOS 0.9.7
2016-11-23:
A new version of our Open-Source Operating System is available.

As we already announced on the mailing list, a new version of the alternative Open-Source operating system for Atari platforms has recently been released. EmuTOS will continue to be improved, and the team around Roger Burrows has once again done a great job. Besides the "small bugfixes" there are 58 new functions and larger fixes in this new release! FireBee owners will directly benefit from many of these improvements. Some good examples would be the new, extended MBR partitions or the independently runnable version of EmuCON2.

As always, EmuTOS will be flashed into the ROM of the FireBee with flash_cf.prg, and can then either be used as the completely independent standard OS by selecting it through the DIP-switches; or by ...
