ST NEWS was an Atari ST/TT/Falcon multimedia disk magazine, made by Richard Karsmakers and Stefan Posthuma from the summer of 1986 to the summer of 1996.
From Sept 2015 to June 2016 I handled the conversion of almost 1800 articles from the atari disk-mag closed format to a more modern and open HTML5 format, as well as the CODEF remake of some of the demoscreens from the original issues.
The completely overhauled website is now available online, with all the goodies from the past (articles, demos, musics, scrollers, source-code, and bonus stuff) available on your browser!
CODEF aka Canvas Oldshool Demo Effect Framework, is a an open source framework that makes it easy to build demos-like animations that run in a web browser (Google Chrome is prefered). Join the Codef wizards on the Facebook group.
