Happy New Year

Antwerp, Belgium. - 31 December, 2007

Hyperion Entertainment extends its best wishes for 2008 to all of its customers and supporters world-wide.

In 2007, Hyperion and the AmigaOS 4.x development team continued its tireless work on Hyperion’s renowned PowerPC based, multi-media centric operating system, AmigaOS 4, with the release of two significant (free for download) updates and the release of AmigaOS 4.0 for the original Amiga 1200/3000/4000 line of computers equipped with PowerPC accelerator cards. AmigaOS 4.0 is now (and has been since quite some time) by far the largest update of AmigaOS in Amiga history dating back to 1987.

Thanks to our strategic partnership with Acube Systems s.r.l which acts as Hyperion’s global producer and distributor, the production value of the Amiga 1200/3000/4000 version of AmigaOS 4.0, with heavy cardboard box, dedicated emergency floppy and glossy Quick Start manual, brought professional production values back to the Amiga platform which have not been seen since the demise of Commodore.

Building on that work, Hyperion is committed to continue development of AmigaOS 4.x in the year 2008 by drastically expanding both the feature-set of AmigaOS 4.x and the range of supported PowerPC based target hardware.

A number of exciting new features are currently already undergoing beta-testing with more functionality under development and scheduled for release in 2008.

Amiga 1200/3000/4000 users of AmigaOS 4.0 can look forward to a free update early 2008 bringing increased compatibility for legacy third-party hardware add-ons and improved driver support.

Users of AmigaOne hardware will also be in for a major treat in early H1/2008 and they certainly will not be the only ones.

Hyperion Entertainment once more wishes to thank all of its supporters and customers for their loyal and patient support without whom there would be no future for AmigaOS.

Please rest assured that in 2008, just as in 2007, Hyperion will continue to deliver.

Happy New Year!
