The German software company APC&TCP just released Roadshow! The program is a new Amiga TCP/IP stack allows you to connect to the Internet, access your e-mail, web pages, chat, etc. It can also help you access and exchange files within your local home network. Roadshow is one of the fastest, if not the fastest Amiga TCP/IP stack. In sustained data transmission tests, Roadshow was able to receive 997 KBytes/s (tested on an Amiga 3000T, using 40 MHz 68040 WarpEngine CPU card and an Ariadne Ethernet card). Roadshow is compatible with the vast majority of Amiga networking programs which use the AmiTCP program interface, such as OWB, IBrowse, AWeb-II, YAM, SabreMSN, ATC and others. A free demonstration version of Roadshow is available, which save for restricted versions of the TCP/IP stack and PPP driver software, is identical to the regular version which you can buy. The demonstration version restricts network access to 15 minutes at a time, after which Roadshow will shut down. The Amiga operating system versions 2.04 or higher are required. This includes AmigaOS 3.0, 3.1, 3.5 and 3.9. Operating systems which are highly compatible with these original Amiga operating system versions, such as MorphOS, are also expected to work with Roadshow.
