Year of Announcement: 1996
This information is based upon a Viscorp meeting at the Toulouse
show in Germany on May 19th, 1996. Bill Buck announced that
following the acquisition of Amiga Technologies they would release
a new version of the Amiga operating system by the end of the year.
Unsurprisingly it was based around networking and internet
transfer, providing TCP/IP, PPP, SLIP, FTP, SMTP, and probably a
number of other protocols. They also claimed the operating system
would be developed for Digital Alpha processors rather than the
PowerPC favoured by the Amiga community.
