Cool, thanks for that, I was more aiming at what do we do with PFS in the time being ?

The non registered version nags at you, is there a version we can use or is that why we are waiting on the source ?

Just wondering which version I can use right now on my CF card.

Got a reply!!!

I got a progress report. Email follows. But before posting it, he mentions that he needs a working 100MB zip drive to recover some files. Does anybody have one to send him for free (he lives in Holland)?

Hi Ignacio,

First thing is the binary release on aminet. You can expect that soon
enough. Source code release just needs some time. I do have the
sources. But you should realize PFS3 is a complex piece of software
and this includes the build. I cannot throw it in the public domain
just as it is, it has to be bundled in a nice package with clear
instructions.

To do that I first have to create a working build environment myself,
and I am not quite there yet. I have the sources. I have a licensed
copy of WinUAE. The compiler, SAS C, I had on original floppy disk,
but I downloaded it already (I do have a license).

I appreciate the help offered and I might need some. I am not sure
about the license to use. All I really want is credit whenever someone
uses any of it - that is I have to be mentioned and I want to be
informed about it.

Also, do you know someone in the possession of a working 100MB zip
drive? I have some pfs-formatted zip disks that may have some useful
stuff on it.

Best regards,

Michiel Pelt

So anyone has a zip drive to give away for free To Michiel?

Thank you guys!
There is already a user at amiga.org that lives in the Netherlands, he is already contacting Michiel to send him a zip drive.

Excellent. I think I'll do a few tests once we have confirmation and it gets posted to FTP. I've been able to boot into a single 55GB partition on my hard disk controller on the 68030, but have had to skip 68000 testing since SFS didn't handle that too well.

A BSD license is the closest I can think of to this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSD_licenses

I think many people would be interested in seeing the plans for PFS4, even just from a historical perspective. If these plans were released too, where would be a good place to host them?

Thank you, I will send Michiel that license suggestion. I will also ask him about PFS4 (I have no problems to host files and information on my website).
