Maybe Santa prepares a gift for you
I can't promise, if this feature will make it into v1.3, as it won't be stable so soon (and I won't release anything known to be broken), but have a look yourself:
Seems as if the 68k AROS side got a bsdsocket.library :). And it can at least send data to a webserver and get something back. And it can resolve IP addresses to host names.
But this is all quite an ugly hack. Only one process can access bsdsocket.library at the same time, the AROS sibling bsdsocket.library is never closed etc. etc.
Yeah, I know, I should first fix Paolo's bug list, but from time to time something new is nice, too ;).
