News has started to flow from the AmiWest Show, which took place on the weekend in Sacramento, USA.
The most interesting development from the show was the announcement from Hyperion Entertainment that AmigaOS 4 for classic Amiga computers will be released on the 30th of November. The news has been greeted by users eager to run the new operating system on PowerPC accelerators such as CSPPC and BPPC.
Another surprising announcement came from DiscreetFX, who revealed that they bought up Aladdin4D, one of the most complete 3D packages. They intend to develop the product further and release an AmigaOS 4 version which will be priced in the $100-150 US dollar range.
