    Yeah, I'm not sure I'm clear on this either.

    Is the driver Aeon is waiting on, the driver they originally contract with Mincea for, or the driver which Mincea now claims is ready (that would appear to have been created by a subcontractor), or for the purpose of fulfilling the contract does the later subsume/replace the earlier?

    Assuming that when Mincea's driver development was discontinued, a sub was hired to fulfill the contract, this is the clearest understanding I can come to from this jumbled description of events.

    That the latest driver (again, supposedly ready) is a substitute for the earlier project.

    And that regardless of Hyperion's position, Aeon wanted to get a driver in the hands of their beta testers NOW and paid for a second (which could, in a weird way, be considered the third).


    It may be difficult to keep this simple, but I'll give it a go.
    Start with what -was- released with enhancer V1.4:

    A1222 ethernet device v1.2 (added) - Rene
    USBADM8511 device v53.11 (added) - Rene
    X5000 ethernet device v52.6 (added) - Mark/Frank

    Reason: "The most important thing is the end-users (our customers) have a working, high quality driver and do not have to wait any longer."

    2015 (my link) is the talk of contract for 2 of the above and X1000. Forget those from the standpoint of Costel doing them. afaik, the following would describe their reassignment:

    X1000: consider that abandoned until someone says otherwise. It has been plainly admitted that it is low priority for Hyperion.
    A1222 and X5000 were contracted out by Hyperion.

    Ergo, the only question remaining is about these last 2. I know of no status and I've read no posts about them in public. If you have, that would be new information imo.

    @Amigakit

    If I have somehow misrepresented the current situation, please correct me.

    I guess amigakit was referring to the latter. And I don't think they are really waiting on these drivers now that the Olsens have delivered ;-)

    Your summary reads OK.

    We have received no official information from Hyperion on status, progress or any possible release date of these.


    @Andreas_Wolf

    After three years of waiting, I have received a lot of feedback over the last two days from X5000 end-users who seem very pleased with the new driver on the Enhancer Software 1.4 developed by Mark. This driver is the official A-EON driver for the A-EON X5000 hardware.

    Is my assumption correct that Mark reserves the right to release the MorphOS version of the driver as he sees fit?

    I claim this for couple years:No CFE fixes, constant charges for video driver development, no one to pick up and fix x1000.ethernet device, no signs of OS4 "multicore support" aka OS 4.2, prepaid by x1000 users, promised to them in manual while OS 4.1 is "temporary stop gap".

    From OS4 POV:half done, half unusable hardware.

    That is just great, I am eager to hear how was the x1000 users feedback on CFE
    and "our drivers" and Linux support incl. mine (Vojin Vidanovic, probably only user that has terminated 2000+ GBP account at your services)
