Any developers who are interested in this project please get in touch, it is 68k Assembly and unique in design - I am still interested in working on this and have not dumped it as suggested by "UltimateAmiga.co.uk" - I am ready to do a clean re-release as I believe AMOS is the last "Imperative Programming language" for the Amiga that is of any use - you can still bang the hardware and do things outside of the normal Amiga OS, especially with version 1.36 - it is powerful and runs like an operating system, so games and multimedia become exciting to program again, relying on your own skills instead of libraries. I don't do Social Media, but I do do AMOS programming when I can (but not very often anymore ;-) - there are no plans to add OO features as they exist in other languages and i'm very specific about what I feel should be (and not be) added.
The project has not "disappeared", it is right here - if I could get some support I could easily get the full re-release up which would be awesome for the AMOS heritage - I put a lot of work into this and understand the system and build requirements very well, but there seems little point without anyone else actually using it, so at the moment this release is as-is and doesn't contain any installation or demos, but I'm willing to assist anyone get it up and running on their system - especially of interest are new Amiga users who have not used this before - It's really fun and will test your "actual" programming skills! I have a version that runs on Amiga OS 4.1 and a replacement AMOS.Library called noAMOS.Library that is ready for RTG development!
based on the original 68000 source code by François Lionet (Thank you!)
Some years ago there was discussion of re-development, but the work mentioned in this article was not made public, any collaborative efforts have disappeared. An archive was made available at a later date but was partially incomplete and difficult to build - this project fixes the build problems, but has no relation to any previous plans or news releases.
AMOS PRO goes Public Domain!
01 dec 2012 In occasion of Pianeta Amiga 2012, Pietro Ghizzoni, current owner of AMOS Pro sources after Francois Lionet ceased development, has kindly agreed to release them as Public Domain. You can download the full package in advance from this link. Sources will be also put on Aminet in the next days.
AMOS present and future
pre Public Domain ? As you know some months ago i've obtained the AMOS sources... during these months I've spent my time learning the AMOS internal functions and structures, in order to upgrade it and develop the new AMOSPro V3... but I've to say that my projects have changed a lot during this period. My original idea was to upgrade/expand it, add AGA support and most of all to make AMOS more OS friendly! but when I examined the sources some problems have arisen...
