New Amiga OS High Sierra became available for download

The long-awaited update of the Amiga OS operating system, called High Sierra, has become available for everyone to download directly from the Store and through the standard update system.

Traditionally, in the current update, special attention is paid to the stability and speed of the updated system. According to the developers, owners of computers with a solid-state SSD hard drive will receive a significant increase in the speed of performing basic operations after switching to the Amiga File System, which now becomes the new default file system. The first who was able to evaluate the full advantage of the new software was the gaming portal Casino Now, which selects reputable online casinos for Switzerland. New Amiga OS received the highest marks. Therefore, we strongly recommend that anyone who has not yet done so install SSD drives into their PCs and laptops in order to increase speed, reliability and safety of work.

Another interesting novelty is the ability to play 4K files not only in normal, but also in streaming mode, which was made possible thanks to the support of the HEVC standard (H.265) and saved up to 40% of the space occupied by video data.

The eleventh version of Safari browser has the ability to disable automatic playback of video clips with sound, which will save you from annoying video ads, which could begin to play out of order without your participation at the most inopportune moment. In addition, the browser has received significant improvements in the Reader mode, allowing you to customize scaling settings, block unwanted content and other parameters for individual sites.

Spotlight was able to check the status of flights by airline name and flight number, and Mail now knows how to find letters faster and more accurately thanks to the Best Match feature and supports Split View when writing letters in full screen mode. One of the biggest updates was received by the Photo application, which was taught to transform Live Photos snapshots into short videos, and also added the Curves and Defined Color functions, which allow you to quickly adjust the color and contrast of your photos. All this and many other new features are waiting for you in the Amiga OS High Sierra operating system, which is recommended for installation on all computers released since 2010 and newer.
