Oh come on, there is no "design" involved here on your part.

No Boing Bag has ever supported any other Kickstart than 3.1, I don't see why BB3&4 should be any different in that regard.
It would be wonderful if BB3&4 could be limited to only support that what the two official boingbags supported. LoadModule works equally well with 3.9/3.X kickstarts as it does with 3.1 kickstarts, and you can _easily_ "support" any kickstarts you want with your BB, including the so called "crippled" 3.X kickstarts. Why this unwillingness?

More configurations supported means more testing needed.

And I don't see why I should do unpaid work for a for-profit company. Especially that company.

Minuous' motives are irrelevant. Please get back on topic.

BB3&4 not supporting latest official kickstarts is not "on topic"?

Yes, but harassing the developer in this thread to get him to do so is not.

BB3&4 are not about kickstarts, they are about AmigaOS.

AmigaOS has (almost always) a kickstart (rom) based component and a disk based one.

You curiously seem to always "forget" the later one when you mention or argue about it for some odd reason.

He is no more developer of this software than I am.

Curiously? Please scroll back, someone asked if BB3&4 works with the 3.X kickstarts, and got the answer "no". I dispute that answer, as there is little and nothing about BB3&4 and the 3.X kickstarts that make them mutually incompatible.

@kolla

Well, you are certainly entitled to have your opinion, but remember that it doesnt make it a fact

Well then, let's see you release a package to support the 3.X kickstart instead of trolling this thread.

Why bother, the current one already works, he just refuses to call it "supported" because he apparently has issues with Cloanto and don't want to do testing.

That's enough. If you can't be bothered, and the current release already works, then you should be able to understand Minuous' reluctance without questioning his motives.
