PCMCIA angle connector and SD to CF adaptor Amiga update

Something different for today's update although it still revolves around the Amiga, is two important updates regarding specific hardware and drivers that makes life just that little bit easier for the Amiga community. The first one is Grzegorz Kraszewski's PCMCIA angle connector, or KA37 for short. Which is a 90 degree angle connector that makes it easier for mounting or connecting PCMCIA cards in Amiga towers. Developed through 5 PCB revisions and over 4 months, the developer has said it fits in tower designs, where there is no space between the case bottom and the Amiga mainboard and is both solid and durable.

The second update is a fixed compactflash.device driver, which enables a better usage of SD cards in an SD to CF adaptors such as in the image above. Furthermore it may also have the side effect of also fixing CF cards that didn't previously work in the PCMCIA slot. This may be useful for some as I too have had problems in the past with certain CF cards, but some users have commented via the Commodore Amiga Facebook group that older versions of the device driver have still worked with a PCMCIA - CF + CF SD combo.
