Some good news tonight! Hyperion Entertainment is not bankrupt. Work on AmigaOS 4 is on-going as usual, as well as the porting of the OS to the upcoming new computer from A-EON Technology – the Cyrus. Please read the official announcement below. 🙂
Clarification of Current Situation
Development of AmigaOS 4 (which recently culminated in the release of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition) is and has been ongoing albeit that some resources had to be directed away to support the upcoming hardware of A-EON Technology.
The company is in the process of reorganizing itself by opening up its shareholder-ship and appointing a new executive director. More details on that will follow when all legal formalities are behind us.
Quite a few AmigaOS 4 supporters have approached us with the question what they can do to help us accelerate development of AmigaOS 4.2.
To that we have a very simple answer: please upgrade all your AmigaOS 4 capable hardware to AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition.
Not only will AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition be used as a base-line for future updates, you will also help us to accelerate AmigaOS 4.2 development!
Those of you who have other concrete ideas, we welcome to contact us.
We appreciate your support and we look forward to meet you at any of the upcoming celebrations of the Amiga’s 30th birthday!
Good to see an official statement from Hyperion Entertainment concerning the situation that arose a while back. There has been a lot of speculations on various discussion forums, social media and so forth, but now we all know the status.
Personally I’ll put in an order for AmigaOS 4.1 FE soon – its pretty cheap at 29.99 EUR. If you are currently using an older version of AmigaOS 4, now could be a good time to upgrade. 😉
Thanks for reading and have a good night! 🙂
Now that is certainly good news. We can still expect more products of Hyperion Entertainment. The AmigaOS 4.2 has been long coming, and it would be a shame to stop the development. Good luck to Hyperion, and hope that all the help will help see AmigaOS 4.2 to completion.

Hi there! Thanks for your comment! I’m happy as well that Hyperion is still going strong. 🙂 Will be exciting to follow the future developments of the OS.
[…] I also wrote about the controversial news about Hyperion Entertainment going bankrupt! This was a big shock to many in the Amiga community, myself included. A clarification would appear later in the year, which I wrote about here. […]
