A600 kick 2.05 - What's the newest WB version for it?

Quick question: Is workbench 2.04 the latest one i can use for an A600 with kick 2.05? I'd rather have something newer, but I don't feel like softkicking with this low RAM

Yep, Workbench v2.1 rev 38.36 should be the newest one of the 2.x series

Hello,
I'd possibly try 3.1 (or maybe more likely to work 3.0) and see what happens. I suspect it would 'work' after a fashion though some things may prove to be a bit funky.

If you do get it up 'n running and there are some particularly annoying problems you can always try to cure the specifics by soft-loading just the relevant libs from the newer ROM.

FWIW: I'm quite keen on the reverse scenario...
If you're not too bothered about eye-candy I'm a firm believer in running WB 2.1 over a 3.1 ROM - good for speed & low memory footprint on 'low power' systems while retaining much of what's improved from the later ROM(s)

Hello 8bitbubsy. I see that you too live in Norway. PM meg og vi skal komme til en enighet når det gjelder denne saken.

Sorry others for the norwegian words

I'll ask in here:
I currently have kick 2.05 (rev 37.300) in my A600 - is it worth upgrading to 37.350?
I heard that rev 37.300 is limited to 40MB -- is this true? I'm running a 256MB CF as a HDD in it, it had no problems partitioning all of it... Maybe it have issues addressing >40MB.

EDIT: Too late, you slow. I already bought 37.350 for 9 euro.

It is not necessarily limited to 40MB, but there are bugs that were fixed in the 37.350 release.

As mentioned above - 2.1 is fine. There is the ClassicWB GAAE version for that too:
