Hope you’ve had a splendid Christmas so far. I know I have. 🙂 It seems, however, like Santa Claus arrived a bit early this year, as AmigaOS 4.1 Update 4 was released on the 22nd of December. Please read on for the official press release from Hyperion Entertainment.
AmigaOS 4.1 Update 4 Released
Brussels, Belgium – December 22, 2011
Hyperion Entertainment is pleased to announce the immediate availability for download of Update 4 by registered users of AmigaOS 4.1 for all supported platforms.
Hyperion continues its tradition to provide regular free updates of AmigaOS 4.1 and with the festive season just days away, this is a particularly appropriate time for a free update.
Update 4 requires AmigaOS 4.1 Update 3 prior to installation.
The following new functionality and bug fixes are included in Update 4:

- New scsi.device patch for Classic installations which enables internal IDE drives to be used for memory paging (SWAP).
- Added NoDriveClick utility for Classic users.
- Added DefIcons support for RunInUAE.
- Updated TCP/IP stack with much improved DHCP support.
- Updated MUI with various fixes.
- Various Workbench fixes.

Hyperion Entertainment wishes to thanks its customers for their continued support in these exciting times for the Amiga platform.
Online support for AmigaOS and Update 4 is provided via Hyperion Entertainment’s Support Forum.
Congratulations to all AmigaOS 4.x users out there! Hope you’ll enjoy the new update.
Great to see that Hyperion included a new emulation drawer with the official AmigaOS 3.x ROMs and Workbench files. That will come in handy for those who’d like to run classic stuff on their AmigaOS 4.x setups.
With AmigaOS 4 Update 4 in the open, I’m sure it’s not long until we’ll be witnessing the invasion of the X1000’s. 😉
Have a good Christmas time! Enjoy the holidays!
