well.. Alinea reported that they've built CD32 ROM an got it working,
they'll do a TF330 test before ship them out,
im not sure was current scsi.device fixed or they just replaced it with one from 3.1.4
we'll see

EDIT:

Hi yes we are offering the CD32 and CDTV (inc extended roms) and will be shipping those once all the other orders for other amiga have been completed as these need to be tested...

The CDTV Extended ROM shipped with AmigaOS 3.2 (after an analysis) is 99.9% identical to the original Commodore 2.07 Extended ROM.

The only differences are the version number in "cdstrap" has been changed from "2.7" to "47.1" and "exec" has been changed, text that said (something like) "Copyright Commodore" has been changed to "Copyright Hyperion".

If Hyperion built this from the source they must have had 100% identical tools to get 100% byte identical modules. If so maybe we can look forward to new CDTV functionality? But I suspect they used ROMSplit and Remus and hand edited the Commodore binaries.

I feel bad for those who bought or took the trouble to burn AmigaOS3.2 CDTV Extended ROMs thinking they contained new functionality and all Hyperion did was change some text.

Once again there is no point in buying or making Extended ROMs with OS3.2 as they have had only cosmetic changes.
