AmiKit 8.2 - Exclusive Flash Disk is available again. Limited edition.

Thanks for using AmiKit! To make it even better for you, we bring new updates in this release.

MUI 4 (Magic User Interface) has been exclusively updated for AmiKit again! For example, keyboard support for virtual groups has been implemented, as well as support for menu item images. MUI 4 now contains a stack check feature, and many bugs have been fixed. Thanks to Thore Böckelmann and Jens Maus.

We introduce a special MUI version of EvenMore in this release. EvenMore is a decent textviewer with a plugin system. Thanks to Chris Perver.

Ukrainian developer Lyubomyr Lisen has updated the AmiKit app for Android. It now uses a graphical user interface, which can be invoked by the Back or Menu key.

Other software updates include a new SimpleMail, Amiga Image Storage System, IconLib, Layers Library, MUIbase and NetSurf. Russian locale is also supported (beta).

Last, but not least, a retro "run and jump" platform game is waiting for you in AmiKit:Games folder. This retro game, Boxx 2, has been created by Lemming880.

What's new in detail?

IMPORTANT NOTE: This update takes a while to install, please be patient.

I'm not a DX or Guleek shareholder so not trying to improve their sales here, but this little thing fits in your hand, comes with 2GB Ram, 16GB flash + microsd port, has a quad-core bay trail atom, wifi, Bluetooth 4, internal battery and windows 8.1 pre-installed. Roughly $100... For anyone who needs a PC for internet and office work, or in this case simply wants to dedicate a low cost but powerful hardware to amiga emulation, it's an unbeatable setup. Maybe you should provide some with amikit pre-installed ;)

Cheers and thanks again for your current and future work on amikit !
