Publications : OpenAmiga.net launched

After careful deliberation and many discussions between developers from all sections of the Amiga community the decision has been made to revive the OpenAmiga project.



The OpenAmiga Standard is intended to minimize the programming effort needed to port between the four current Amiga platforms, Amiga OS 3.x, AROS, MorphOS and AmigaOS 4.

It is a collection of API's that developers can target safe in the knowledge that their software written on one platform can be compiled and run as intended on an alternative platform that adheres to the standard....

Please feel free to visit our website and provide feedback as the standard is not set in stone yet.

We're currently focusing on the development of a new SDK, which we plan to release as soon as possible.

 Re: OpenAmiga.net launched
My only concern is that an 'OpenAmiga' initiative, with different goals, already exists at openamiga.org. Since this is not something which has to do with opensource or other 'open' things (except mind, though), but its goal is just to set a common standard for coding/porting/adapting applications in order to have them on all Amiga-like platforms, I guess a better naming would be more appropriate.

Something like "Common Amiga Standard" or "Amiga Platform Compatibility Common Layer" or so, rather than OpenAmiga.

And, since time advances and technology too, every time a common standard is ratificated, it should also take a version numbering. For instance, the first proposed compatibility layer may be called APCCL 1.0, so everyone can easily spot if an application is suited for their current system.

Let's imagine QT will become standard on all three Amiga-like OSes, then an APCCL 2.0 might consider using QT instead of MUI/Zune. And so on.
