Cloanto released Amiga Forever 2006, the latest version of the award-winning Amiga preservation, emulation and support suite for Windows and other platforms. The product is in stock at all reseller partners.

Compared to the previous release, Amiga Forever 2006 includes 200 MB of new Amiga games and demoscene productions (CD version) and hundreds of enhancements. Some titles, such as Eric Chahi's Another World, have been re-released as a special build for this version. Amiga Forever 2006 features enhanced compatibility with popular Amiga add-ons such as AmiKit, AmigaSYS and AROS for Amiga (AFA), while introducing third-party ROMs, such as Logica's Dialoga diagnostic system. "These recent developments are only a small sign of the work we are doing to make Amiga Forever more open and appealing to a diverse audience", said Cloanto's Michael C. Battilana, who was recently uncovered as "The man with green hair" next to Jay Miner on the Amiga Forever back cover.

Like the previous version, Amiga Forever 2006 is available in an Online Edition (compact download for Windows), a Plus Edition (downloadable cross-platform CD ISO image) and a Premium Edition (CD plus two video DVDs). All versions of Amiga Forever make it possible to run Amiga software on non-Amiga computers, giving access to thousands of Amiga games and demoscene productions which are available for free download from software publishers and Amiga history sites alike. The Plus Edition and Premium Edition include more preinstalled games and demos, additional items of historical interest and several hours of videos.

Presented by the people who made it all possible, the videos on the two Premium Edition DVDs provides a unique insight into the history of computers and multimedia, exposing the relationship between Commodore, the Amiga, an increasingly mature PC market, and the ups and downs of the video games industry. "This DVD set has some incredible footage from the early Amiga days. I really enjoyed watching the launch of the Amiga and interviews with the creator of the Amiga, Jay Miner," said Brian Bagnall, author of On the Edge: the Spectacular Rise and Fall of Commodore. "If you want to know more about what was going on behind the scenes, this is for you."

The Amiga Forever team will meet to present Amiga Forever 2006 in person at Codex Alpe Adria, the yearly event organized by Cloanto the first week-end of July. Bernd Schmidt, the original author of the UAE Amiga emulation software that made the first version of Amiga Forever possible in 1997, will join the small crowd of Amiga and alternative computing developers, sceners and enthusiasts in two weeks.

The Amiga Forever team would again like to thank the Amiga Community for its support during these 20 years of Amiga and almost 10 years of Amiga Forever.
