    Whereas Tabor itself will have its own discussions, currently it is obviously the launch and terms that have met with some confusion:

    and the posts following

    I expect there will be clarification this week at Amiga Ireland, as Trevor will be present.

    Did I understand Trevor correctly at 28:08 into the current video interview that this driver might not be included with the Tabor/A1222 release?

    At 52:15, does Trevor say that Mark Olsen is the author of a sound driver for A-Eon? Which one would that be? Tabor?

    These same issue with being able to supply complete X5000 systems with new graphics cards
    has reached the sound cards as well.
    So likewise with Polaris support for graphics cards,
    drivers for newer model sound cards are required.

    Would be interesting to know which audio controller/codec this driver is for, and if MorphOS will get this driver as well.

    A1222eth.device version 1.2 is already included in Enhancer.

    Yes, that's what I quoted and replied to, and hence my question.

    Hyperion's Contract for porting Amiga OS 4.x to the A1222 includes an Ethernet Driver for the onboard Ethernet.

    A1222 AmigaOS 4.x timeline :

    AmigOS4.1 first booted on the A1222 in November 2016 .

    A-Eon version of the A1222 onboard ethernet driver completed in March 2018 .

    So you say that Trevor is referring to Jamie Krueger's driver (Hyperion), not to René W. Olsen's driver (A-Eon), in this interview? This doesn't seem plausible as he's mentioning A-Eon's "video driver" and "sound driver" in the very same sentence. And also, I wonder why he even should refer to Hyperion's driver when A-Eon has commissioned and already released its own driver.

    Jamie Kruger's driver should be on the A1222 ISO as part of the porting contract.
    A-Eon's would then have the option to exclude their R. W. Olsen version from Enhancer 2.0 going forward.

    Matthew Leaman informed me that, due to factory shutdowns, several of his new classic Amiga hardware products have not been shipped or are now greatly behind schedule. A-EON Technology's A1222 early Adopter development and release schedule has similarly been affected and Matthew thinks the delays could push production into the third quarter of this year.

    and

    Matthew also confirmed that the AAA Bundles themselves will now be shipped out the first week of March.
