Last month we write about the release.

Now here the official Press Release:

October 30, 2014 - Via well-known Amiga resellers like AmigaKit, ASB Computer and Vesalia, as well as specialists like CDTV expert Chris Millard, Cloanto is making available an updated set of 3.1-generation Amiga Forever products for Classic Amiga systems:

Classic Support Workbench 3.1 Floppy Disk Set (six DD disks)
Classic Support Workbench 3.1 Hard Disk Image (e.g. on CompactFlash)
Classic Support 3.1 ROMs
Classic Support 3.1 CDTV Upgrade Kit

Amiga Forever always included Workbench 3.1 as a set of floppy disk images and a preinstalled hardfile. By popular demand, a "Classic Support" scenario was explicitly outlined in a Coexistence Agreement between Amiga, Inc. and Cloanto, for use also outside of emulated Amiga systems.

Workbench 3.1 remains true to the look and feel and the feature set of the last Workbench by Commodore/Amiga, including the ability to boot from floppy disks, which was not an easy task in consideration of some required improvements and limited disk space. The updated Workbench 3.1 further remains compatible with 3.0 and 3.1 Amiga ROMs, and is additionally compatible with 3.X ROMs as used in Amiga Forever. Under the hood, the distribution was improved not only by restoring some lost content, but also by including some fixes required to run the same Workbench 3.1 on different Amiga models (e.g. the A-4000T) and on larger-capacity hard disks.

Each Classic Support set comes with a license key that can be used to download the same content again for recovery or update purposes. Additional technical details are included in "Amiga Forever Workbench 3.1 Improvements".
