im not sure. in general terms perhaps yes, but i dont think it has been updated any lately. also im not sure if it really reflect complecteness of the modules on particular platforms. for instance i remember on m68k aros camd library crashed aros while one from aminet worked (tested with hd-rec), so i suspect that in this and and a number of other cases endian problems still persists, since big endian platforms have not been tested throughout in comparison to le ones. i mean here for instance lan device drivers, saving and restoring data, such as settings and so on. this might change with the upcoming big endian raspi port, hopefully.

Thanks all. It's a pity, but I totally understand that maintaining this type of information isn't the most exciting task in the world.

mm. is there a particular reason you ask this? any particular component? maybe tests can be performed and information updated eventually? the lacking state documentation has  been a subject of some discussion lately.. unfortunately we have even less core devs actually active since then.

No particular reason really. I'm just out looking for something to tinker with, and if it turns out to become something that's useful to others, that's a plus.

i could come up with this and that, but maybe it would be worth to consult the actually competent aros developers, lets say on slack?
im not sure i have your mail, could you pm it to me, so i can invite you, if you wish?

There have been some open tasks on Zune, that were discussed on old aros-exec iirc.

for this probably best is to consult the bug tracker.

out of my own interest id love to see a number of things done that would improve support of big endian targets, as my most precious amiga-m68k.
for instance saving particular wanderer settings or actually implementing palette.prefs in order to be able to correctly map planar icon format such as iff at some point. (currently they become remapped even on planar screens).

but as i said probably people like kalamatee might indicate what would be most pressing issues best.

@wawa

I mean this old thread:

https://ae.amigalife.org/old/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?post_id=108121#forumpost108121

The issues described there with Zune are on the bugtracker since a long time afaik.

Imho, it would be very good to help active developers like ALB42 with solutions asap. He is waiting for a very long time now.  ;)
