Wanderer already displays "Workbench Screen" and not "Wanderer", besides it's configurable to display anything you like.

I'd just like to chime in and say as so many others have already said - this is a *fantastic* project!

A *big* thank you to the people involved with this, this is great!

Nightly Builds don't seem to have been updated since 2010-12-04 - and that version doesn't seem to boot (and older builds were removed).

I hope this is still active behind the scenes.

I don't know about daily builds but dos.library compatibility has improved greatly (and it is also much faster)

For example original WB2/3 disks boot now without warnings, errors or crashes.

Note that Workbench won't work because there isn't one included in ROM yet, Wanderer which is AROS WB replacement is too big.

BCPL support is coming soon (Jason is doing this)

full AmigaOS 1.3 support for BCPL CLI applications is just
a Small Matter of Programming.

We're starting to get desperate for a 'Wanderer Lite' that
could be made ROMmable. It would be nice if someone that
has some GUI experience could take that up.

I expect to have 95% of the Workbench 1.3/3.0/3.1 BCPL apps
working by mid-January 2011.

Does anyone know of any 'major' BCPL applications out there
that I should test with other than those on the Workbench/Install
disks for 1.x/2.x/3.x?

Sounds awsome, but what are those DOS Packets?

The quick and dirty explanation is that while most other "stuff you communicate with" in AmigaOS are devices that share a common base interface, filesystem handlers have their own separate system consisting of completely differently structured messages that dos.library use to pass requests (for things like reading, writing, getting directory contents etc.) to them.

AROS originally went with implementing filesystem handlers as devices, which might arguably be more consistent with the rest of the AmigaOS API but which is quite incompatible with AmigaOS itself. In retrospect it wasn't a great idea as it made it far harder to port filesystems and the gains were comparatively small, and so there's been a long standing goal of fixing this incompatibility.

For the M68k port they're now actually going ahead and fixing it. Eventually those changes will hopefully make their way into the other AROS versions too.

Another update by Toni on the mailing list.

Most utilities run and most preferences programs at least open.

some random notes:

- prefs/screenmode shows random (uninitialized variable?) values in
width, height and depth string gadgets. (and system crashes when
selecting any mode, I will debug this later)
GUI issue is too high level stuff for my debugging tastes. (I also
have personal issues with MUI)

- WB "Information" menu does not open, TextEditor.mcc does not init.
(MUI again, argh)

- WB doubleclick detection is very unreliable.

- compiler/alib/timedelay.c and compiler/include/clib/alib_protos.h
does not match. I tried adding AROS_UFP3 () macro to alib_protos.h but
then intuition/menutask_aros.c refuses to compile. (nothing too
serious, currently it only makes all TimeDelay calls to fail due to
UnitNum being some large number)

And finally, WB1.3 startup-sequence runs quite nicely now. Remaining
problems: FastFonts (ff) corrupts all fonts and system/setmap expects
LONG return type from OpenDevice().
(Is it ok to change OpenDevice()/WaitIO()/DoIO() return type to LONG?
it should have no effect to existing programs)

I think now most problems "only" require lots and lots of time for
debugging.
Of course also need to find some kind of tiny WB replacement and
rewriting chipset HIDD for KS replacement purposes. (and IDE driver
and and..)
and a screenshot provided by deadwood

- Shell CTRL+D and CLI faillevel checks implemented (at least works in
dos packets mode, something still wrong because >NIL: swallows some
error output that should not be swallowed)
- UAE mousewheel keycodes don't repeat forever anymore.
- Titanics cruncher pseudo-overlay executables supported (real/full
overlay executables not yet supported)
- WB1.3 C:FF does not corrupt fonts anymore. WB1.3 startup-sequence
now works perfectly. (minus workbench)
- and more.
And another screenshot from deadwood:


Very Nice!

Lookong good indeed. What setup would you need for this? I have been toying with the live distro's of Icarus and Broadway, would they work with this?

EDIT: Just watched the video. So you can run this from WinUAE, very nice.
