    I have tried the latest version of Amiblitz 3 with MorphOS 3.9 but It seems is a bit unstable in my system.
    Have you got any experience with it? Some examples simply locks the system.

    Interesting! Since there is a BlitzBasic programming course starting in the AmigaFuture magazine I will have a look at it as the course progresses.

    But isn't Amiblitz somehow tied to the classic Amiga Chipset? Maybe that's causing the crashes?

    "BlitzBasic was designed to develop games for Classic Amigas, with direct support for the classic hardware, such as OCS/AGA chipset or Paula for audio. Over the years, especially when BlitzBasic became Amiblitz, the system conform parts were more and more developed, leading to a programming language that can be used for other hardware too, such as x86 running Amithlon or WinUAE, PPCs running AmigaOS4 or MorphOS, as long as the OS API is compatible and the OS is able to execute 68K code."

    Amiblitz runs better without using the Debugger. The Debugger use the fpu so perhaps is a not emulated fpu instruction? Who knows...

    That's unfortunate.
    Altogether, even without debugger it seems a bit unstable.

    When I tried it ages ago on my Amiga 4000 I had stability issues aswell, so I went back to the older Blitz Basic.
