Notes
======
This is part of a batch of releases from Canux Corporation.
The source code was obtained from floppys disks, which was found 
and preserved with a kryoflux (thanks SPS).

There might be more than one version of source code in one archive. 
(v1.0, 1993 etc). Please submit any work you might to do to our gitlab in
a pull request.

A bit of the source code history from the copyright owner:

"
All of the sources with the exception of DesignWorks 2.0 and PowerManager
 (and I don’t know if that source was included in what I sent you) were created 
by a US company called “New Horizons”. When NH sold off their IP 
(intellectual property) I was leading a development team at a company
 called WCi in Ottawa Ontario and we bid on and won the auction of those assets.
 I believe that was in 1994. 

We rolled out a new version of DesignWorks (as mentioned) along with other 
products like an Amiga power manager, a keyboard protocol converter (KB-10) and others.

WCi went out of business in 1995 or 1996.  I personally bid on and 
won the auction for WCi’s IP sometime after that. We did not do any 
more Amiga development afterwards but some of our software was featured 
in Amiga magazines at the time and we continued to build and sell our hardware products."

HELP US
===========

1) As the software now is GPL, please also upload the full binary
releases of the software if you have them, or send them to us.

2) Contact your old amiga friends and tell them about
our project, and ask them to dig out their source code or floppies
and send them to us for preservation.

3) Clean up our archives, and make the source code buildable
with standard compilers like devpac, asmone, gcc 2.9x/Beppo 6.x
, vbcc and friends.


Cheers!
