Amiga OS 3.x was another major update. Updates included:

  • A universal data system, known as datatypes, that allowed programs to load pictures, sound and text in formats they didn't understand directly, through the use of standard plugs (i.e. object-oriented operating system)
  • A system-standard localization system, allowing the user to make an ordered list of preferred languages; when a locale-aware application runs, it asks the operating system to find the catalog (a file containing translations of the application's strings) best matching the user's preferences
  • Colour remapping for low-colour display modes
  • Improved visual appearance
  • Better support for background images

3.x shipped with the Amiga CD32, Amiga 1200, Amiga 4000 and Amiga 4000T.
