Afa OS 4.8 changelog

AROS for AmigaOS

This is the release version 4.8 of AfA_OS.


Realtime Skin System, which can change Skins without closing the screen first,
and supports user defined border sizes for every border.
See Screenshot under the following link:

It can be selected between Visualprefs, Birdie or the AfA-Skin system via
AFA_Prefs and a customized startup-sequence.

ReAction (ClassAction), KingCON and MUI Windowgadgets are supported and replaced
by the Skinsystem with code and help from Dieter Groppé.
DOpus5 Iconify and tbiclass Windowgadgets are also supported and replaced by the
Skinsystem by pushing 😉 and with help from Thomas Klein.

A user configurable Blacklist where you can exclude programs from using bigger
than normal borders as some programs do not work with increased border size
properly. The blacklisted programs will then open with standard border size.
Please drop me a line if you mention that programs do not work properly with
increased bordersize.

Many user configurable real time parameters like three different Borderlines.
The user can change the pre defined Skin parameters over a GUI.

Window Titel Font autonomous from AOS attuned Window Font selectable.
Position of Window Titel Font and shadow with adjustable depth selectable.

Skins consist of several parts: Screentitle, For- and Background for the verti-
cal and horizontal sliders and window frame parts like top, bottom, left and
right frame.

where 21 skins are shown:

AfA_OS allows you to use 32bit Dual Image PNG Icons, OS4 32bit Icons, « Palette »
GlowIcons and NewIcons with full Colorprecision and also faster than with the
original because colours must not be remapped to Workbench Palette. It works
in conjunction with DOpus Magellan and Workbench. Dragging of Icons works in
full 32bit colours with P96 and CyperGraphics V2. With CGX 3 and 4 icons will
only be shown in four colours while dragged.

OS4/PNG Icons can be scaled in realtime due to a high quality scale code by
Thilo Köhler. On a Classic (060) Mason-Icons with 30 pixel size can be rendered
faster than in original size.

Alpha-Channel support for picture datatypes.

TrueTypeFonts are supported with antialiasing.


Since AfA Version 3.96 NewIcons will be treated like GlowIcons. That means you
have to be the following things in mind: Icons will be converted into Glow-
Icons if you change anything on them (e.g. change or fix position, Tooltypes,

Changes for this version:

AmigaOS 3.1.4

The official update you’ve been waiting for.

Workbench screen of AmigaOS 3.1.4 with new GlowIcons
Workbench screen of AmigaOS 3.1.4 with GlowIcons #2
Workbench screen of AmigaOS 3.1.4 with default icons

The new, cleaned-up, polished Amiga operating system for your 68K machine fixes all the small annoyances that have piled up over the years. Originally intended as a bug-fix release, it also modernizes many system components previously upgraded in OS 3.9.Contrary to its modest revision number, AmigaOS 3.1.4 is arguably as large an upgrade as OS 3.9 was, and surpasses it in stability and robustness. Over 320K of release notes cover almost every aspect of your favourite classic AmigaOS — from bootmenu to datatypes.Some highlights:

  • Over 20 Kickstart ROM modules and many more disk-based core OS components were fixed, updated, or added.
  • Native support for all Motorola 68000-68060 CPUs, and a more robust Auto-Configuration process.
  • Support for large hard disks, including boot, for any OS 2.x/3.x-compliant controller driver supporting HD_SCSI_CMD, TD_64 and/or NSD. Dedicated boot partitions are a thing of the past, even on legacy devices. You can also use variably-sized « super floppies ».
  • modernized Workbench as powerful as the OS 3.9 version, including new or refreshed Preference editors in the legacy OS 3.1-« GadTools » style. Its tools such as DiskCopy and Format fully support large media. Printer, hard disk and many other support tools have been fixed and upgraded.
  • Remember « Diskdoctor« ? It earned its PhD and is now ready to reliably rescue data from your floppies or hard disks.
  • The CLI/Shell and many of its commands have been reworked and modernized, now sporting native support for pipes, softlinks, hardlinks and long filenames. New commands support running Workbench programs from the Shell or upgrading ROM modules.
  • CrossDOS and the CD-ROM filesystem are now smarter, faster, and multi-threaded, adding Rockridge and Joliet extensions as well as UDF.
  • Fully reworked, modernized and bug-fixed printer drivers include support for PCL and PostScript, along with legacy NEC and Epson printers.
  • An optional upgradeable intuition.library provides off-screen dragging of windows for native and P96 RTG screens.
  • colorful, professionally designed icon set is included, along with the traditional four-color icons.

Vampire/ApolloCore support:
Since the Vampire currently does not support Autoconfig or other established means of integrating 3rd-party kickstart modules into the OS, the ROM has to be slightly patched and modified, using tools provided by ApolloTeam. We recommend using an A1200 ROM for this purpose, but we cannot offer support for this procedure or the resulting OS.
