We at Hyperion Entertainment CVBA are more than thrilled about the overwhelming success our customers made out of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition! Thank you!
Actually the success is so great, causing especially the supply of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition for Classic to dry up during the last weeks and some of your preferred dealers even ran out of stock already, which is of course unacceptable!
In order to remedy this drawback, Hyperion Entertainment CVBA commissioned the production of another batch of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition for Classic, which will be available to and from dealers before the end of May – yes, 2015 ;) So if you did not get a copy yet or want another one for your shelf, place your pre-order at your favourite dealer now!
Good news for interested A3000 owners: of course we took advantage of this opportunity and fixed the Kicklayout to allow proper booting on A3000 machines without the need for a special bootdisk.
And also some good news for all existing AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition owners: with immediate effect the CD images of your registered AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition version(s) are available in the restricted download area. If not done already, please log in yourself and register your copies by entering the serial numbers in the registration form. We hope we eliminated in this way the fear of a broken CD some of you expressed.
In closing, thank you all again for making the huge success of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition possible in the first place! This is the best support you can give us for developing AmigaOS, so let’s continue to stick together.

For Immediate Release:
Mountain View California
May 14th, 2015
After a successful Kickstarter campaign and with the help of corporate sponsors the Amiga 30th Organizing team is happy to announce a full two day exhibition in conjunction with the banquet.
Starting in April we launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a banquet to honor the 30th anniversary of the Amiga Computer at the Computer History Museum. That successful campaign ensured our banquet. Now, with the help of A-Eon and Friend Software Labs we will be able to expand the event to include TWO full days of exhibit hall.
The exhibit hall will feature nearly 20 exhibits and exhibitors. The main attraction will be a massive historical display of 30 years of the Amiga. From the Lorraine prototypes to the A-Eon X1000 nearly every Amiga model and system inspired by the Amiga will be represented. We are working to ensure each system will be running and usable. In addition to the released models are also working to secure rare prototypes such as the A3000+. Friend Software Labs will have a special announcement and presentations at the event. Along with the Amiga systems we will offer a games zone where folks can play the great classic Amiga games including some 8 player games and tournaments.
Along the Amiga system displays we will also have many Amiga related companies and projects including Individual Computers, Amiga Forever, and Viva Amiga. The Sacramento Amiga User Group will be assisting with the historical display and presenting an AmiWest table.
We will have a theater area for presentation during the event with speakers covering all the history of the Amiga. There will also be an area for art, photographs, and other displays.
The Amiga Computer has impacted and influenced so much of modern technology. Join us for a weekend of celebrations and events to honor the legacy of the Amiga and the great Amiga community.
