MorphOS 2.4 - First Release with Mac mini SupportThe MorphOS development team is proud to announce the public release of MorphOS 2.4, the first ever public version to install on Mac mini G4 machines. In addition to the extended hardware support, existing users will benefit from various bug fixes and a few new features. For an overview of the included changes, please read our release notes.

We strongly urge owners of Mac mini G4 computers to carefully read our installation and troubleshoot guides before they attempt to install MorphOS for the first time. Existing users can upgrade via the familiar procedure but are encouraged to read the guides as well. MorphOS 2.4 is available for download in our files section.

In related news, MorphOS 2.4 will be demonstrated at the upcoming Amiga Meeting in Bad Bramstedt. Interested users will be able to pay and register MorphOS at the event.

    This is fantastic news!

    Now I will be showing MorphOS2.4 on both my EFIKA and my G4 PPC MacMini at the AmiWest 2009 show this coming weekend.

    Thanks MOS Dev Team for releasing this version just in time for it to be shown at the AmiWest 2009 show.

    This is awesome news!!! Now I just have to find a way to save up for a G4 and I can finally make the next-gen Amiga jump and give my A1200 a bit of a break (she'll still be used for games and coding of course).

    Congratulations, MorphOS Team!

    Well, I'm impressed, it booted up so quick I didn't have time to read the 2 lines about the amount of memory and all that, and I'm a pretty quick reader before anyone comes up with a 'funny', I've got to go to bed now, but everything seemed to be working great on my little Mac-Mini.

    Didn't get past the Quark/Open Firmwear on my Powerbook, well you have to try don't you?

    Great news!

    Congratulations to the MorphOS team!

    btw - next time there's a major release, is there any chance you could release it on a Friday night - this early-week late evening business plays havoc with my sleep pattern ;-)

    Thanks to all involved, I'm now re-installing OSX in preparation for the dual boot system.

    Great to see it out, but at $222.7833 US for me to register I'll have to just be happy with it in demo for the time being. Is any plan in the works to drop it to a more reasonable price?
