MorphOS: Update of Python 2.4 Port to Version 0.4pre
MorphOS-Version 0.4pre of the scripting language Python 2.4 is available for download in the Pegasos forum.

Python is an object-oriented programming language that was developed by Guido van Rossum in the early 90s at the Center for Scientific Information Applications in Amsterdam. The text of a Python program, in all Python implementations to and including the current one, is transparently translated to a "between code" that may be completely executed by the interpreter.

Meridian 2.0 for AmigaOS 3.x and MorphOS released
Guido Mersmann has released version 2.0 of Meridian, a commodity, that allows, like a PDA with writing recognition, the use of virtual hotkeys for e.g. calling programs. Because start point and direction of a mouse movement are taken into account there are close to infinite combinations which are freely useable.

With Meridian it is possible to cycle through screens and windows, to close windows, to cancel requesters, to start programs or start actions by moving the mouse only. That all without visual interface or pop-up menu or dock - only the mouse pointer on the screen.

  • Commodity
  • Online help
  • Locale support
