AROS är ett resurssnålt, effektivt och flexibelt operativsystem, gjord för att hjälpa dig få ut det mesta av din dator. Det är ett oberoende, fritt och plattformsöverskridande projekt med målet att vara kompatibelt med AmigaOS på API-nivå (på samma sätt som Wine, men olikt UAE), men förbättrat på flertalet områden. Källkoden är tillgänglig under en "öppen-källkod"-licens vilket tillåter att vem som helst får göra förbättringar.

Detta är förkonfigurerade och vältestade versioner av AROS. De innehåller många användbara program som inte följer med från start och är de som är mest intressanta för vanliga användare. De kanske saknar den senaste versionen av AROS, men de är mycket stabilare och mer användarvänliga än nightly builds. Om du är en som är nyfiken på vad AROS har att erbjuda så rekommenderar vi att du använder distributioner för bästa möjliga upplevelse.

Author:Krzysztof Smiechowicz

This month's highlights start with the results of the AROS 2016 usage survey. The survey was aimed at understanding the ways in which AROS is used and what is needed to make it more useful. In total 50 people took part and you can read the results of the survey in this thread . Thank you to all who participated!

June also saw the release of an update to Icaros Desktop, the leading x86 distribution by Paolo Besser. The update, presented as version 2.1.2, brings a refreshed 68K environment, new cloud service drivers and a few updated applications. Visit to download the update.

As a final highlight, Krzysztof Smiechowicz began work to refresh the ABI_V0-compatible system files with the latest developments from the AROS trunk. The last refresh was done at the end of 2014, so it is a good time to bring the new functionalities to the AROS community. The refreshed version is expected to be available in Fall 2016.

May 2016 Highlights

Author:Krzysztof Smiechowicz

As the days finally got warmer on northern hemisphere, the activity of both users and developers of AROS reached quite low levels in May.

Krzysztof Smiechowicz made the necessary fixes to the source code and enabled again the x86_64 build of AROS, which was not available for over three months. Right now nightly build targets for all supported architectures are available.

In May first version of a new, interesting application has been made available by Marcus Sacrow. Mapparium is an OpenStreetMap client working under AROS and MorphOS. Current functionality allows for example browsing the map and searching for location.

Closing, a new survey has been launched in order to understand how AROS is used by people and how it can become even more useful. If you have not done so, please answer the survey questions in this thread
