Amiga Workbench 3.0
Workbench 3.0 was first introduced in 1992 as part of the 'new'
Amiga 4000. It quickly made its way into the low-end market when
the Amiga 1200 was released just a few months later. The Kickstart
ROMs and Workbench were ony available through the purchase of these
systems. OCS and ECS users were forced to wait for the release of
the AmigaOS 3.1 Upgrade in mid-1994 to get their hands on the new
features. The release added support for the AGA chipset,
Localisation, DOSDrivers, datatypes, and a range of other features.
The Early Startup Control was revised allowing caches to be
disabled/enabled and adding diagnostic features. There was also a
range of aethetically pleasing changes, including better color
remapping and background pictures rather than the WB2 Patterns.
Menu colours were reversed, demonstrating black-on-white menus,
3D look added to menu bar (bottom black line), new-look style
scroll bars and arrow gadgets, and WB3 Palette Preferences.
