Hi everyone,

A new version of the MorphOS operating system was released on the 27th of May:

The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the public release of MorphOS 3.2, which introduces support for Power Mac G5 workstations, iBook G4 laptops and additional PowerBook G4 models. The 3.2 release also has a strong focus on improved network support with a completely new and improved NetStack core as well as support for wireless networks. In addition, there are several new network-related tools such as VNC client, a Remote Desktop Client and a tool showing detailed network statistics. As usual, the latest release also offers many new features and bug fixes. For an overview of the included changes, please read our release notes.

We strongly urge new users to carefully read our installation and troubleshooting guides before they attempt to install MorphOS for the first time. Existing users can upgrade via the familiar procedure but are encouraged to read the guides as well. MorphOS 3.2 is available for download in our files section. (Source: Amigaworld.net)

Now the OS supports even more of those old Apple Mac computers. 🙂 If you’ve got one gathering dust somewhere, now is the time to bring it to life again with an Amiga OS. 😉

You can find more information concerning the updates that has been made on the official website of MorphOS by clicking here.

I think it is great to see that MorphOS is making progress. The OS can now be used on a wide variety of platforms and you can try the OS before you buy. So if you want to get into NextGen Amiga computing, you can find an old Mac (you can find these very cheap in second-hand stores, eBay etc) and install MorphOS on it.

In case you want to try it out, here’s a link for you: MorphOS Download

I also recommend you having a look at this page for a lot of interesting information and news: Meta-MorphOS.org

Thanks for reading and have a nice day! 🙂

  1. Very awesome! It is very cool to see something that allows people to bring old machines to life and maybe re-purpose them instead of just going to waste.

    • Hi mate,

      Thanks for commenting. 🙂

      Glad you liked it. I totally agree with you – it’s great that old computers and equipment can get a new spark of life due to such projects. One guy I know is getting rid of his old PPC MAC, so hopefully I’ll be able to run MorphOS on it. Would be great!
