    Thanks, I read that forum thread now.

    > can I consider my request as recent ?- 10-September-2020? :-?

    I'd day so, yes. I don't know when the Amiga Addict article was actually written and what time frame 'recently' therein may refer to, just that the linked image of the article was uploaded 24-October-2020.

    Opposed to the OS4 and MorphOS releases of v5, which are called beta releases, the OS3-68k releases are apparently deemed final releases, at least judging by the titles in the list of PageStream releases.

    As I understand it, his statement is not about using the 68k version instead of non-68k version but about using v4.1 instead of v5. That's not to say this statement wouldn't be somewhat B.S. as well, though.

    Yes, Alchimie 0xb back in 2015 according to comment #52.
