What's New in MorphOS 3.10

From MorphOS Library


MorphOS 3.10 is one of the biggest updates for MorphOS since the release of version 2.0. The official release notes list is long and detailed, but let's look at some of the main features and changes in a more visual way here.

Yet again the update is free of charge for registered MorphOS 2.x and 3.x users, and the registration price has been dropped even more since the previous release.
