FireBee Series 2 - Now open for pre-orders
2015-08-26:
As promised, we would like to inform you today about the upcoming production of the next batch of FireBee computers.

As they have been sold out since 2014, but requests for more units were repeatedly made, we decided to produce another series. In order to pre-finance it completely, we would like to get 50 fixed pre-orders, and have 20 of those to make a down-payment of 200,- Euros. As soon as this number of pre-orders and advance payments has been reached, production will begin. Building the boards will take approximately 12 weeks after that. Ideally, those boards will still be shipped in 2015, if enough orders are made in the upcoming weeks.

Of course the FireBees of the 2nd series can also be bought without pre-orders after production has been completed. But every fixed pre-order allows us to begin production ...

Firebee.org goes online
2015-08-15:
For a long time we had wishes that could not be realized with our old web site acp.atari.org. Many worldwide FireBee contributors came up with many good ideas also.

Among them primarily that we should have a web site that is really usable for multilingual users and have editing by several editors and translators. A further important point is, that the Atari Coldfire Project got too widespread, that the information needs to be structured in kind of a Wiki format. We would like to have space for downloads and have a comprehensive support area. Furthermore we would like to present our products to be quickly accessible and more appealing. We would like a kind of online shop and even to present (external) software. Additionally to present the news in concise format and overall we like to be able to expand with adding new chapters and much more.

Unfortunately it ...

MIPS
2015-08-07:

In an internal developer discussion, mostly between Olivier Landemarre, Roger Burrows and Markus Fröschle, the ACP developers recently debated how Freescale came up with a speed of 401 MIPS for the 266 MHz Coldfire processor. After speculating about MIPS, VAX and Dhrystones the developers agree only that they do not agree. Nonetheless, there is some fascinating material for end users.

In the course of this discussion the Dhrystone 2.1 benchmark was recompiled using GCC 4.6.4. We cannot keep the test results from you as, in spite of everything, they give a good comparison of the FireBee with EmuTOS (100% ColdFire native), FireTOS with cf68klib, Aranym (without JIT), an original Atari Falcon and TT, as well as a CT60. We ...

AtariICQ 0.176 - Chat software
2015-03-14:

In the month of October 2012, Joakim Högberg had delivered a "pre-beta" version. Although the situation hasn't changed a lot, the software development has continued, and a new official version of the ICQ client is now available. The 0.176 version fixes several errors encountered, among others, in the memory management, overlay and shortcuts. AtariICQ is a program written in GFA -Basic with GBE from Lonny Pursell and runs on Atari Classic and Firebee (FireTOS, FreeMiNT). Since the 0.173 version, AtariICQ became freeware. The full list of changes and the download are available on the Atari ICQ website:

New GBE Release
2015-02-07:

This update addresses several installation problems reported by users. It's now much easier to install, as everything needed for coding and compiling is included in one archive. The default installation takes care of all the paths and commands for building 68K and Firebee binaries. Bugs have been fixed in nearly all the components. See the included documentation for details.

Installation instructions: http://userpages.bright.net/~ ... esetup.htm
Download link: http://userpages.bright.net/~ ... es/gbe.zip

Hopefully this helps get more users up and coding sooner on their Bees.

Askin gradients for XaAES
2015-01-04:

Philippe Noble recently released Askin, a new set of gradients and widgets for XaAES, with the aim to give the FireBee and other FreeMiNT platforms supporting TC video modes a nice and modern look. The Askin gradients were created to match the "Linear.48" sets of icons, but they should work well with most sets of icons.

As the informations available on the gradient format were limited and incomplete, Philippe had to find out by trial and error how to achieve the best looking results, with the support of the community and developers. A preview image and the latest version of the Askin gradients package is available at Philippe Web page:

EasyMiNT 1.90b
2014-12-11:

Marc-Anton Kehr just made a new version of EasyMiNT that should run on firebee now.

He had some additions to ST support too but those are in alpha stage. Two things are not working until now on the firebee:

- the filesystem check during boot
- there will be no backup of an existing MINT folder, so you have to be careful!

Now the news:

- MiNT 1.19 and XaAES 1.6.4b are installed now
- firebee support
- ext2 filesystem on ST now
- substituted Teradesk with THING 1.29
- creating an ext2 partition works on the firebee, too.

The package is about 40Mb and can be downloaded there: http://atari.st-katharina-apo ... m_190b.zip

Please be careful, this is ...
