Afa OS 4.8 changelog

AROS for AmigaOS

This is the release version 4.8 of AfA_OS.

Features:

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:
http://amidevcpp.amiga-world.de/AfA_Screenshots/currentafa%20develop.png

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.

Now are 22 Skins from Ken Lester are usable. Here is a link to a screenshot
where 21 skins are shown:
http://www.five-star.com/kens_icons/screenshots/themes_all.png

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.

Attention!!!!

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:

The icon_lib.exe use now a buffer that fix Hits by displaying Icons in the
NewIcon format.

The saving of the Font cache was disable in the diskfont_lib.exe this fix
problems with write protected Volumes.

In the graphics_lib.exe a problem with RecFill was fixed that occure if it was
used in the Border area.

The blacklisting are extended that the program TypeSmith now works with the
ToolType entry « bxxxTypeSmith » in the BlackList Icon. « bxxx » indicates that
the hight of title bar are not set back to the defaults.

The max posibile value of the Icon-Size in the Afa_Prefs program are set to
256.

Thomas Klein has fix a Hit in morelibspace, reported by Frank Weber.

He also extend AfA_OS_Loader to support the parameter « OPTIMAL » with it the
AfA_OS_Libs are started in its optimal order.

The AfA_Prefs program are reviced by him, it is now complete localisable.
There are two new ToolTypes « ForceSkin » tries to close and open the Workbench
that the settings are used for all windows at the end of the program.
With « Layout=(0-2) » it is possible to switch between three layouts of the
Window settings, 1 is the default its the one that are used in older versions.
At 0 and 2 the stettings are grouped.

Test d’Amithlon

La scène de l’émulation Amiga sur PC s’est enrichie d’un nouveau membre récemment, et pas des moindres car il fait beaucoup parler de lui, j’ai nommé Amithlon !

Amithlon et AmigaXL, c’est quoi ces trucs ?

Amithlon et AmigaXL sont des produits commerciaux, distribués par Haage & Partner au sein du paquetage « AmigaOS XL » depuis fin 2001.

Un mot rapide sur AmigaXL (qui n’est pas le sujet de notre article) : il se lance depuis le système (QNX 6.1 seulement), on se retrouve donc bridé en mémoire ainsi qu’en espace disque et en ressources système. Les pilotes reconnus par QNX seront utilisés dans l’émulation Amiga (le réseau, ou bien les applications : Opera peut être lancé directement depuis l’écran Amiga). Mais son point faible est qu’on n’a pas l’impression d’être sur un vrai Amiga. Donc avec AmigaXL, le but de l’auteur est raté. En fait, je le considère comme un bon émulateur mais, à mon avis, c’est de la même trampe que WinUAE.

Là ou cela devient intéressant, c’est pour le cas d’Amithlon. Votre disque dur est formaté en FFS (ou autre système de fichiers Amiga), il est reconnu comme un vrai périphérique (amithlon.device) et il en va de même pour les autres périphériques (lecteur de CD, carte son, carte réseau…). Donc ici nous avons l’impression d’être sur un vrai Amiga (même si on a deux touches sur le clavier avec des fenêtres dessus. 🙂

Conseils sur l’installation

Pour ma part, j’ai préféré formater mon disque dur avec mon vrai Amiga et ensuite installer AmigaOS 3.1 dessus. Une fois ceci fait, j’ai branché mon disque dur sur le PC pour installer AmigaOS 3.9 version API x86. Mais vous pouvez également brancher un disque non formaté et démarrer sur le CD ! Le Workbench se lancera et vous pourrez partitionner et formater votre disque dur comme vous l’entendez.

La vitesse

En ce qui me concerne, j’utilise Amithlon sur un Duron 700 MHz et le tout tourne très bien ! Je suis en 1280×1024 en 32 bits (avec une Riva TNT2) et quand je joue à Quake 68k (version GPL pas celle de Clickboom), j’avoisine les 30 FPS en 640×480. Je pense que c’est le genre de programme qui exploite au maximum la machine et permet de se rendre vraiment compte de la qualité de l’émulation. Les programmes se chargent très rapidement, les fenêtres se déplacent avec fluidité, DOpus est très rapide pour lister des répertoires ou encore effacer des fichiers.

On peut considérer Amithlon comme le plus rapide des émulateurs Amiga grâce à son JIT programmé par son auteur Bernd Meyer. De plus, Amithlon propose des pilotes natifs pour les cartes graphiques Matrox et Nvidia afin d’optimiser au mieux la vitesse d’affichage.

Des points noirs ?

Je pense que le problème suivant va en refroidir plus d’un : Amithlon n’émule ni l’AGA, ni l’OCS/ECS ! Seulement des écrans RTG (Picasso96). En fait, il émule en cas de problème un écran basse résolution en 4 couleurs. Donc pour ceux qui comptaient faire du LightWave c’est raté, l’écran de rendu fait planter ! Et pas de Zool, ni de Megalomania et ni de The Settlers !

Qu’est-ce que je peux en faire ?

Déjà, quand on investit 150 euros dans un émulateur, je pense que ça n’est pas pour jouer aux vieux jeux. Ensuite, il en va de même pour les démos, c’est vrai que c’est intéressant d’en regarder mais à la longue, ça n’est pas trop constructif (NDLR : votre A1200 actuel est parfait pour cela).

Ce que je veux vous faire comprendre c’est que maintenant s’offre à vous une station de travail survitaminée ! Rendez-vous compte : finis les rendus trop longs sous Tornado 3D, Wildfire ou encore Real 3D ! Voici venu le temps de la retouche photo en temps réel ! Vous en aviez marre qu’Art Effect fasse ses prévisualisations en 68k ? Maintenant il les fait aussi vite qu’un PowerPC 604e ! (et même plus sur les dernières configurations PC).

Conclusion

Voilà, pour la conclusion je pense qu’il faudrait que vous vous demandiez quelle est votre utilisation de l’Amiga. Un utilisateur fan de démos par exemple devrait plutôt continuer à utiliser WinUAE, ce dernier étant compatible AGA et suffisamment rapide pour la majorité des démos. Après, si vous voulez dépenser 150 euros pour ne pouvoir lancer que le peu de démos compatibles Picasso96 ça c’est votre problème. Ensuite, il en va de même pour les jeux, si vous êtes plus fan des jeux « Old School », WinUAE est encore le mieux. Il est clair que vous pouvez tout à fait utiliser UAE pour Amiga et ça tourne très bien.

Je pense sincèrement qu’Amithlon s’adresse en grande priorité à ceux qui ont oublié l’AGA et n’utilise plus que leur carte graphique, j’entends par là tous les graphistes 2D/3D ainsi que les musiciens qui, par le biais d’Amithlon, auront leur interface on ne peut plus fluide et le son cristallin de la Sound Blaster 128.

Pour finir, je pense qu’Amithlon est un bon émulateur qui rend l’émulation aussi conviviale que d’utiliser un vrai Amiga (vraie présence des périphériques contrairement à UAE) mais souffre d’un véritable handicap du fait de la non-émulation de l’AGA/ECS/OCS.

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. Please seek ApolloTeam website for guidance and support at: http://www.apollo-accelerators.com/

AmiKit X (10.5.1) – Maintenance update

October 2018: In this another free update we bring AmigaOS 3.1.4 support. You’re going to love how easy we made it for you. Simply launch MorpheuZ and click the « OS Update » button. It’s THAT easy.

We’ve also made a few tweaks. AmiKit now displays icon information much more nicer. Right-click any icon and select « Information » (we switched to RAWBinfo on AmigaOS 3.5/3.9)

A bit of fine-tuning made the AmiKit even easier to use. For example, click « Go to parent directory » button while in root directory to display device list. Oh, and did you know that you can double-click anywhere on desktop to invoke a lister?

We’ve done some cleanup and AmiKit boots even faster now! If you installed AmiKit with OS3.1 (from OS41FE), we bring some extra classes for you so, for example, LimpidClock will finally show up on your desktop!

Last but not least, we’ve fixed many bugs too. Check the changelog below for more details.
