    Nice to see! It'd be interesting to know more about the extent of support for the 9600 & 9800 cards.

    Warning - Possible Dumb Question... Could someone give an example SetClockNTP command line? I've had some clock issues recently (resorted to soldering in a much larger 3v battery than those button cells that my Efika seems to think are some kind of snack...) and SetClockNTP sounds like a good work-around.
    PPC assembly ain't so bad... ;)

    "The one thing that stood out to me is that some work has gone into fixing bugs for several PowerPC G4 chips - more specifically, models used in PowerBook G4s."
    http://www.osnews.com/story/24093/MorphOS_2_7_Released

    Seems the author confuses PowerMac and PowerBook (only some very old G4 PowerBooks have MPC7410; MPC7450 isn't used in any PowerBook). Btw, has the sock-eating started yet? ;-)

    Yes, thank you for this release!

    I notice on my Efika, since it's the only MOS box I've got at the moment, that this release is much more stable in low memory situations-OWB just kinda slows down but seems far less likely to crash the system like it used to.

    With this release I could run SCANdal and OWB with enough stability to scan in some pics and put them on Facebook.

    That says a lot about MorphOS and the tiny Efika-and all of it's good, if a little slow :-)
