    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.



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

    "Matthew Leaman [...] recently took delivery of the updated layout files from James Felix, the former Ultra Varisys engineer who was a key designer of the original Tabor board. The new motherboard, renamed A1222 v1.3, includes replacements for several obsolete minor components."

    "A-EON is currently stalled on the prototype stage of the new v1.3 design of the A1222 Plus. This hopefully will be resolved soon as there is some additional help enlisted to get this over the line. Just working through the mundane NDA/legal stuff."

    Going by the Enhancer 2.0 press release, it's probably "OxygenHD AHI sound driver v4.1", which seems to be for the CMI8788 PCI audio chipset.

    And regarding thread topic: "A1222 AHI sound driver v6.3" is also contained.
