Hyperion and Amiga Inc. don't give a shit about AmigaOS 3.x and 68k. Hyperion would like to force all 68k users to abandon the 68k and buy AmigaOS 4. Amiga Inc. is a bunch of criminal con-artists that only care about squeezing the last pennies out of the Amiga's grave. There are only 2 possibilities to continue ReAction/ClassAct without paying ransom money to the the thieves.

1) Find Christopher Aldi and see if he signed an exclusive contract for rights to distribute ClassAct/Reaction. He is a really nice guy so there is a descent chance he would help if he could.

2) Recreate ClassAct/Reaction. I believe someone started for AROS several years ago but I don't think they got very far.

Maybe Hyperion's attitude will change when fpga 68k Amigas far outnumber AmigaOS 4.x PPC Amigas. They could compile ClassAct, P96 and Warp3D for the 68k anytime they decided it's worth their time. The sad truth is that it would be in their benefit to do so to further these APIs, to support their buggy products that give them a bad reputation and to help their reputation with 68k owners who are their target market for AmigaOS 4. As it it, I won't be buying any products from these kinds of companies.
