In order to assist and accelerate the resurrection of Aladdin4D it had to be split in two. One piece remained with DiscreetFX and the other piece is in the hands of A-Eon Technology Ltd. This allows two different companies to grow and expand the user base and mindshare of Aladdin4D. Double or more in brains, partners and idea men that unite with positive goals. This is the way of the lamp. This is the destiny of the lamp. Rub the Lamp, Render the Magic.

October 2012 Windows 8 is a complete and utter failure. The lesson here is don't try to force your customers to use a new AOL 1996 inspired hard to use interface and take away what they're used to using. Windows 8 destroyed the Windows brand way more than Apple or Google. Apple and Google are now larger organizations based on market capitalization. Microsoft got jealous of the installed base of Android and iOS and thought changing the interface of the Windows Desktop to look like Windows Phone would be a winner. Other opinions have stated they were deadly wrong and it cost Steve Ballmer his job and most of the Windows 8 team has been fired or transferred. If you need to use Windows use version 7 instead. Some customers are even happy with XP and that's up to them. We won't even mention the failure of Windows Phone 8 or the mega failure of the Microsoft Surface tablet (1.2 Billion dollars lost and counting) which also runs Windows 8. Why do we even bother talking about this silly news? Aladdin4D 6.0 will never be sold for Windows, it will be available free of charge to customers that buy a version for other platforms.
Windows 8 Failure links listed below.

The following news item is being publish to the Aladdin4D Blog because MorphOS currently runs Aladdin4D 5.x and will get a native version of Aladdin4D 6.0.
The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the immediate availability of MorphOS 3.6. Delivering one of the most requested features, this new version can now utilize the built-in Wi-Fi hardware in all Apple systems that feature Broadcom´s BCM43 chipset. In addition, MorphOS further extends its support of graphics chipsets to include AMD´s R400 series by adding compatibility with Radeon X800 PRO and FireGL X3 cards. Moreover, the latest version of MorphOS now enables laptop owners to define custom screen modes and provides default modes for increasingly common high resolution displays.
Improving interoperability and overall convenience, MorphOS 3.6 adds a new SMBFS filesystem handler with 64-bit I/O support for easy file sharing via network storage devices, a new VNC server to control your MorphOS systems remotely or even without a display, and a Synergy client for sharing a nearby mouse and keyboard with any Linux, MacOS or Windows machine that is part of your local network and acts as a Synergy server.
As usual, MorphOS 3.6 includes many more improvements and bug fixes. For a more complete list of all changes, please read our MorphOS 3.6 release notes.
We strongly urge new users to carefully read our installation and troubleshooting guides before they attempt to install MorphOS for the first time. Existing users can upgrade via the familiar procedure but are encouraged to read the guides as well. MorphOS 3.6 is available for download in our files section.
