I don't know how to express this, so I will try to get straight to the point the best I can:

This is a call to people stating their love to Aros, because there is a real isue with its development. Right now the main devs working on the core development and future (updates and  new features) of AROS are mainly just 2 developers: Kalamatee, and Mazze, with help from Mike R and others (sorry if some names don't come to mind right now), and of course not disrespecting at all the amazing work of deadwood and Michal Schulz, but the later are more focussed on different aspects (not exactly related to the core development): backporting to Abi 0 and 68K emulation for ARM.

The hardest part of the work comes from kalamatee, which also happens to be in a very real and sad dire straits, which prevents him sometimes to keep working on Aros because he cannot even pay his internet or other regular bills, let alone buy required hardware or other "luxurious" requirements for his daily life.

Right now he is working (and show public and real progress) in "details" like: updating 64bits to support all the contributed software, SMP, SDL and Mesa support till the point of bringing Vulkan to Aros, skinnable icons and themes and many more exciting features, with some of them so mature that are already working and at the bug testing stage. Not exactly small stuff, right?

So, if you really want to keep Aros alive, please put your money where your mouth is: he needs support. ANY amount helps a lot, and it's greatly appreciated (even 5, or 1 /GBP/$). And it is as easy as a paypal or Github donation to : kalamatee@gmail.com

Thanks for your time and thanks a lot in advance for your support!

Oh: and if there is anyone interested in watching realtime progress on the fruits of his well spent money, you are welcome to join the Slack channel, where details and screenshots are daily shared.

I suppose I can share this,

All screenshots from aros Abi1 x86_64 bits native, running MESA 20.2





ScummVm 1.9, 2.20 is ported but still need to fix bugs



Icon Alias: now Aros can use predefined default iconsets if a custom icon is not present



Please donate to help making possible to keep working on it (no BS, it already happened in the past that he had to stop working for months because lack of money).

Or even better: contribute coding if you are developer. Just need to agree to this terms: This is for Aros Abi 1 64 bits. Going beyond what Workbench 3.1 offer, so having things like USB 3, Vulkan, 4k, ssd/NVMe etc... ARE TARGETS. Just because current users need them. If you agree to those conditions, you are more than welcome :)

I know salvo :), that was intended to anyone. Hope you liked the shots and can help at some point, cause this fork is the most important for Aros survival, and just with the cost of one of our supermarket buyings we can be part and proud to contribute to its survival

Similarly. No pictures from x-vision. Although I'm logged in forum.

Sorry. It seems slack does not allow to watch screenshots if you don't have an account.

Let's try this one. Do everybody see it?

No. Nobody sees it. And that's the way it should be.
This was discussed, for example, here.
Also, for example, everyone sees it:

You posted a link to a file located on another server requiring authorization.
Moreover, in order to even break off with access, you also need to be authorized on this forum.
This requires double authorization to view.

I have uploaded the image to the server that does NOT require authorization to read the file from it.
If you do the same, everyone will see your images.
