Amiga OS 3.5 Not Yet Shipping

Note: apparently some Amiga retailers are chomping at the bit to secure orders for Amiga OS 3.5. There have been at least two reports in the newsgroups of retailers claiming that the much awaited software upgrade for the classic Amiga is now available, shipping and ready for immediate sale.

Olaf Barthel, one of the primary programmers claims here that he is still working on the package and that these retailers must have found the secret to time travel.

Let's say that if that offer was true, I'd be more than happy to take it. Would save *me* a whole lot of work, since I'm still involved in getting the product polished and stabilized. Looks like time travel has finally been invented. And not a minute too late, I might say ;)
