MorphOS 3.15 ram-handler contains a bug that when unlucky may results in the RAM: root directory to appear to contain many duplicate entries. Multiple users had reported this over the years, but until recently the root cause of this issue had eluded us. Due to recent developments, the bug has finally been located and fixed (thanks to AngryTom for help!).

Fixed ram-handler will be released as the part of the future MorphOS 3.16 release. Meanwhile you can install the following patch that fixes the problem for MorphOS 3.15:

ramrootfix.lha

To install it, extract the archive and drag & drop "ramrootfix" to SYS:WBStartup.

As some of you may have read over the past days, there has been an ownership dispute over the Freenode network. The IRC network has been used by MorphOS and many other projects over the past decades as a platform for discussion and support. The dispute led to the exodus of most former Freenode staff from the network and the founding of a new network: Libera Chat

In light of these events, the official MorphOS IRC channel has been migrated and can now be accessed by visiting #morphos on irc.libera.chat. The old Freenode channel will stay online for the time being but could be closed down by the Freenode owners at any time.

For more information regarding the Freenode situation, here is a summary: Freenode IRC resign en masse after takeover by Korea’s crown prince (Ars Technica)
