2019-04-14: ARAnyM 1.1.0 released

After more than four years there's a new release with tons of fixes and improvements

2018-02-06: ARAnyM wiki moves to GitHub

The wiki pages have been moved to GitHub. This should allow anybody willing to write anything useful about ARAnyM (either brand new or fix/rework the original stuff) to do that now.

2017-07-18: ARAnyM moves to GitHub

ARAnyM project has been moved to GitHub. This will ease and hopefully even accelerate new development.

2017-02-21: New mailing list

ARAnyM gets a new mailing list at Google Groups (because the old privately hosted ones died long time ago).

2014-10-17: ARAnyM 1.0.2 released

After almost 13 years of development welcome ARAnyM version 1.0!

2014-04-13: ARAnyM 0.9.16 released

New JIT CPU for 64-bit Linux and Mac OS X, MFPR FPU emulation improvements, Ethernet on Mac OS X and improved NatFeat USB

2013-04-15: ARAnyM 0.9.15 released

New bridging network for Mac users and video fixes for everybody plus middle mouse click for input ungrab.

2012-03-23: ARAnyM 0.9.13 released

A couple of important bug fixes made in the last four days convinced me to make another release.

2012-03-19: ARAnyM 0.9.12 released

New precise FPU emulation core, fully working NF USB, NF clipboard for BeOS. Several minor fixes and one important fix of CPU CAS instruction emulation.

2011-02-06: ARAnyM 0.9.11 released

Few small fixes. Better BeOS/Haiku support.

2010-05-27: ARAnyM 0.9.10 released

This version fixes two nasty crashes in HostFS introduced in previous version. It also brings GEM <-> Host clipboard interconnection.

2009-09-05: ARAnyM 0.9.9 released

Even more fixes all over the place. Best of all - this ARAnyM does no longer crash due to a (now known) bug in libSDL! If previous ARAnyM has ever crashed on you please upgrade to this version and give it another try.

2009-04-25: ARAnyM 0.9.8beta released

Fixes, fixes, fixes... CPU, DSP, VIDEL, IKBD, FPU (for JIT), parallel port and last but not least, better handling of mouse grab/ungrab.

2008-12-26: AFROS on TOS and new DMG package for Mac OS X

I have just uploaded a new DMG package made by Francois that is supposed to contain the necessary SDL libraries - mainly the SDL_image one that is required for boot logo and nfJPEG support (that new AFROS makes use of).

And in the AFROS download area you'll find a new small zip file called AFROSonTOS that will allow you to boot the stock AFROS on your TOS. This can be useful in case you need to check certain software under AFROS and that software suffers from EmuTOS' only partial or even completely missing support for certain HW or SW features (e.g. DSP)

2008-12-17: New ARAnyM+AFROS Live CD released!

It's been more than 4 years since the last (and also first) Live CD release so I decided to spend another couple weeks on preparing a brand new Live CD for you! This is based on a modern Slax Live CD so it should work properly on your new PC hardware. It autodetects the networking, obtains an IP address via DHCP and boots directly to a GEM desktop with internet working. Enjoy and let me know your success stories :-) More information about the Live CD is in this mail post. The ISO image is in a separate download area.

2008-12-17: AFROS 8.12 released

A fresh new AFROS with new versioning (Ubuntu-like year.month), lots of new software, ready to browse internet, write mails, view images, watch movies, listen to music and more! Would you like comparing ARAnyM speed? Use the included Kronos and post your best results :-) Detailed information about the new AFROS is here. AFROS has got its own download area now.

2008-11-08: ARAnyM 0.9.7beta released

Patrice seems to be increasing the ARAnyM's usability for Falcon games - DMA sound, joysticks and joypads.. and so much hard work put into bugfixing DSP? There were of course regular fixes at various areas including improved automatic network setup on Mac OS X, SDL GUI clicks were fixed, keyboard scancodes corrected and more.

2008-01-29: ARAnyM 0.9.6beta2 released

In short: much faster graphics output, Mac OS X supported better than ever (JIT on IntelMac, networking and more!), coming with ARAnyM logo+icons and usual bunch of bug fixes and improvements.

2007-07-23: AFROS 0.9.5-3 released

AFROS with new HighWire using TrueType fonts and best of all - with working network/internet connection. Boot it up and browse Web now :-) Download...

2007-07-09: ARAnyM 0.9.5beta released

New release brings major speed up of the MMU version. FreeMiNT with MMU or Linux-m68k can be run on an average ARAnyM machine faster than on any real MC680x0 now. Mac OS X target has been improved and many smaller bugs have been fixed. Download it while it's hot. Also slightly updated AFROS 0.9.5 is available...

2006-11-28: ARAnyM 0.9.4beta2 released

New release fixes couple of CPU/FPU and other bugs. Download at usual place. New AFROS is being prepared and will be available soon.

2006-09-24: ARAnyM 0.9.4beta released

Yes, after 7 months there is a new release. You can download source tar ball, binary for MS-Windows and most notably new AFROS package built using our new cool bootstrapping feature. It's no longer a disk image black-box, now you can copy files around easily even in host OS! Follow this direct link to download.

2006-03-04: CVS links corrected

On Development page I have corrected URLs to point to our new domain Also added a direct link to CVS web interface.

ARAnyM now runs on its own domain:

2005-11-03 : mailing lists are back

We've lost the '' server so our mailing lists haven't been working in past few days. Now Tonda has finished migrating them to a new server. Old e-mail addresses still work but you can also start using the new ones: aranym@ and aranym-user@


Linux-m68k kernel has been patched to support the Native Features and on top of that new NatFeat based Ethernet driver for linux kernel has been written. Thanks to that you can enjoy networking in Linux-m68k running on ARAnyM. Patch and precompiled kernel 2.4.27 are available here.
