boards.library README  04/Feb/2018

Introduction:

This library decodes manufacturer IDs and product IDs of Amiga autoconfig 
hardware. So - in short - it'll show you what stuff there is inside your 
machine and who made it. It's supported by other tools which provide 
information about your system, like "WhichAmiga" by Harry Sintonen or 
Report+ by James Jacobs. 

Version information:

This release has been developed and tested on various Amiga hardware, both 
real and emulated, but may contain bugs, crash your machine and frighten your
cat. 


- boards.library (V3.42)
	+ added Wicher 500i by Artur "7-bit" Gadawski
	+ added BigRam 2630 by IComp
	+ added ACA1233n in 020-mode
	+ added ACA1233n Rev 1. in 030 and 020 mode
	+ added ATL HDI Ultrasound video capture card
	+ fixed a bug that led to PicassoIV modules 
	  inheriting other expansion's serial number 
	  (thanks go to Jasmin68k for reporting)
	+ fixed a really stupid bug which falsely triggered the
	  serial rewrite routine in rare cases
	  (thanks go to Robert Miranda for putting me on the 
	   right track) 
	+ added recognition for ConneXion network cards 
	  running in A2065 emulation mode 
	  (feedback needed, thanks go to analogkid & Scrat)
	+ changed IDs for Zorro IDE/LAN/Clockport card by
	  buggs/Matze/Scrat 
    
  	
- showboards (V2.15)
	+  fixed a bug that would show some Zorro II cards as 
	   Zorro III and vice versa
	+  Kick 1.x machines no longer crash 
	   (you still need to use showboards 1.x, though)
	+  ProductID is now displayed correctly as byte-sized

- 661 boards (including variants) known



Developer information:

If you're developing a new piece of hardware for M68k-Amigas, please read the 
according section of BoardsLib.guide (enclosed in the archive).

If you're a software developer and still use the 2.x release, you MUST check out
the modified API. The archive contains full developer documentation and
include-files for C and assembly language. 


*Your help is needed*

Get your weirdest and latest expansion boards out of your storage boxes, run 
showboards on your machine and give me your feedback every time you encounter 
an unknown board or anything strange. And if you are/were a developer of 
hardware yourself and know some details about you cards' serial information 
encoding, let me know as well. 

I also enjoy "showboards"-outputs of fully loaded machines or those containing
rare pieces of hardware. Yes, developers' needs can be quite simple. ;-)
