All Vampire V2 accelerators from the Apollo team are now ready for AmigaOS 3.1.4. Two ways are provided to install the AmigaOS 3.1.4 ROM image on Vampire Cards. You may choose between the MapROM option or the Flash option. The former method is useful for testing purposes as it avoids permanent changes to the card. The FlashROM option will directly overwrite the Kickstart image in the Card’s flash such that the 3.1.4 ROM will be available at power-on.  The Apollo Accelerators is an Amiga Classic accelerator board product line. It uses the Apollo core which is a code compatible Motorola M68K and ColdFire processor but is 3 to 4 time faster than the fastest 68060 at time. It also brings Amiga Classic closer to Amiga Next generation systems by offering digital video with millions of colours. After 18 years Hyperion entertainment released AmigaOS 3.1.4, offering huge improvements. The new, cleaned-up, polished Amiga operating system for your 68K machine fixes all the small annoyances that have piled up over the years. Originally intended as a bug-fix release, it also modernizes many system components previously upgraded in OS 3.9. AmigaOS 3.1.4 is arguably as large an upgrade as OS 3.9 was, and surpasses it in stability and robustness. Over 320K of release notes cover almost every aspect of your favourite classic AmigaOS — from bootmenu to datatypes. You can purchase the new operating system for just € 29,95 on the webstore.
