Brussels, November 30th 2016
Hyperion Entertainment is pleased to announce the pre-release version of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition Update #1 especially adapted for the latest next-generation AmigaOne X5000 computer developed by A-EON Technology Ltd.
The pre-release version of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition Update #1 is an official update to AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition released by Hyperion Entertainment in 2014.

Until that time registered AmigaOne X5000 owners will be able to download machine specific critical updates and bug fixes as and when they become available and will be entitled to a free digital copy of the full AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition Update #1 when it is released by Hyperion Entertainment.
