Amiga News Week 39/2019

These are the Amiga News, I noticed this past week (September 23rd - 29th)

AmigaOS 3.2 preview announced

amiga-news.de shared that a new AmigaOS 3.2 is under way. It follows on from AmigaOS 3.1.4 (and its update 3.1.4.1) has a few enhancements. It is unknown if this a full release with a new Kickstart ROM or if will just be a software update. It is also unknown if it will be free to current 3.1.4 licensees or if it will require a new license.
