APC&TCP: DigiRoller - Betatest for DigiBoosterPro
Press release The Open Beta Test of DigiBoosterPro has started today. For this purpose we have published the program DigiRoller at the title link. We wish to get as much users as possible for this Open Beta Test to avoid future problems.

DigiRoller is a standalone DBM module player and renderer. It is released for free as a preview of sound synthesis technology used in upcoming DigiBooster 3. With DigiRoller any DBM music module can be played or saved to an AIFF/WAVE file. There is also a benchmark mode which allows for estimating DigiBooster 3 player engine speed on different hardware. DigiRoller is being released for AmigaOS 3.x, AmigaOS 4.x and MorphOS 1.4/2.x and runs on all hardware supported by these operating systems (with exception of 68020+ requirement for AmigaOS 3 version).

The key feature of the new DigiBooster 3 player engine is AHI independency. The new engine does not rely on AHI resampling and mixing. Using own algorithms allows for better quality, for example track mixing is done with 24-bit precision. Breaking AHI dependency also opens a way for making high quality DigiBooster 3 module replayers for non-Amiga operating systems like Windows, Linux or MacOS. DigiRoller uses AHI as a playback backend only, to stay compatible with as many sound hardware as possible. (snx)

Metacompiler: PortablE r4
Christopher Handley's Metacompiler PortablE translates the programming language E into different ones. Through this extensive E-programs are supposed to be changes in this way that they can be compiled to a wider range of platforms.

With version r4 additional to AmigaOS, AmigaOS 4, AROS and MorphOS now Windows is supported as well.

  • PortablE now has basic support for Windows, along with some standard portable modules which allow the same program to run unchanged on Windows & Amiga; documentation & several examples are provided
  • PortablE now comes with an installer (for all supported platforms)
  • The PEGCC program runs both PortablE and G++ (GCC) for you, thus producing an executable directly from E code
  • PortablE now runs up to twice as fast
  • Added MUI support for AROS
  • Fixed modules to work with AmigaOS 4's latest SDK
  • FastNew() & NEW are now thread safe
  • Fixed FastNew() & NEW, which were previously un-aligned & so could cause crashes under certain circmstances
  • OpenLibrary() could a crash on AmigaOS 4; really fixed this time
  • Numerous other improvements, changes & bug fixes

MorphOS: Reggae-Updates multimedia.class 52.13 and zxscreen.decoder 51.2
Grzegorz 'Krashan' Kraszewski has published two updates for his multimedia library Reggae:

multimedia.class 52.13
  • Added two helper methods for class implementors: MMM_PrePull() and MMM_PostPull(). Using them in a class saves about a kilobyte of code :-)
  • Added a separete memory lict semaphore, so one can use Reggae memory allocation functions inside MMM_Setup(). One of new incoming classes needs it.

zxscreen.decoder 51.2
  • The first class to use PrePull()/PostPull() helpers
  • Because of this added multimedia.class 52.13+ check at initialization
  • Binary is shorter. ;-)
