Here's a little heads up on some upcoming stuff. It's been a while since these larger updates, but don't worry, we're working hard :).

Battler has done most of this work - gathering, assembling and identifying these releases. I've just sorted them, added some of my own and done some repacking. So credit goes to him ;).

Here's a little list of what's coming. Note that this list may change before the files are finally added, not all items has been added or properly verified yet. If any member here has DOS/Win version that isn't in this list then get in touch with Battler or me so we can add it to the collection before the final release. Or upload it to BA, either way is fine.

Update: Updated the list, Battler found a few errors... so I'll update the list before I go to bed...

If you check the previous logs or check the FTP you will notice that most of the english stuff was released earlier.

Windows 98 became abandonware 25 June 2008 if we go by the 10 year rule. XP is technically abandonware August 24, 2011 but this shows how wrong this abandonware "rule" is. Software should become abandonware x years after it goes off retail shelves, not x years after it's initial release. With software with a long lifespan such as XP it would almost become abandonware while it's still used in the world.

2011? 2014? What are you diddling about? XP is not on the server except for betas...

As for Windiows 98 and the rest it will get on the servers eventually. Remember that space is limited at the moment and we put betas as a main priority, which means a lot of abandonware will not be uploaded until we solve the storage problem.

For Microsoft abandonware, wouldn't it be simpler to go by the date Microsoft stops supporting it, I mean technically no Microsoft software is ABW yet because Microsoft still holds all rights to it all... Discontinuation of support is about as close as we'l get.

I've moved this line of the discussion to this thread. Please discuss the definition of abandonware there.

As for the DOS/Win stuff i REALLY want to finish it up now, I only got a few bits and pieces to add and I'll hope I can have it up on BA soon. We are getting low on space now (all those Win7 releases drained it) but we're working on that as well.
