Emulator: Preview to WinUAE 2.0.0
As usual the develpers of the well-known Amiga emulator WinUAE give a little preview to the next version. WinUAE 2.0.0 is supposed to be published in autumn/winter 2009 and and will have the following changes:
  • Huge A500 cycle-exact emulation compatibility improvement. Previous "approximate cycle-exact" is gone. It is time for REAL cycle-exact emulation!
  • Greatly improved unexpanded A1200/CD32 emulation compatibility. Approximate cycle-exact 68EC020/68020 emulation implemented, includes emulated instruction cache, approximate prefetch emulation.
  • 68040 MMU emulation (from Aranym) finally merged. For example Enforcer and M68K Linux compatibility. (NOTE: not compatible with JIT)
  • CD32 drive emulation compatibility improved.
  • Built-in WASAPI sound API support.
  • Less annoying real harddrive safetycheck.
  • Full NTSC timing implemented (long/short line toggle etc..)
  • "AutoVSync" mode that change native refresh rates automatically (50Hz/60Hz)
  • Basic CPU frequency/bus multiplier configuration option added.
  • Bugfix:Programmed refresh rate modes had bad sound. (1.6.1)
  • Bugfix:Command line parsing special cases fixed. (1.6.0)

MorphOS: CPUGauge 1.3
CPUGauge is a screenbar plugin which shows the current usage of processor. CPUGauge requires at least MorphOS 2.0. The changes in version 1.3:
  • Now uses SA_ScreenbarSignal for its timer in order to prevent the Public Screen Manager task running out of signals due to CPUGauge running on too many screens
  • Fixed a bug that made CPUGauge crash when the timer was not created (Fabien Coeurjoly)
  • Small adjustment to localisation: Changed "Opacity" to "Visibility" and "Undurchsichtigkeit" to "Sichtbarkeit" in the german catalog

MorphOS: First screenshots of vector graphic program MOS-Office
Carsten Siegner wrote: With this I would like to announce my personal "little Office-package" (first only available for MorphOS, later for AmigaOS 4 and other as well). This is called "MOS-Office".

The user-interface was completely written as MUI-GUI and works with the "Multi-Windows-Method". All windows are asynchronous, that means that all windows can be open to each time and can receive input. MOS-Office is a pure vector graphic program which can handle any number of sites.

In later versions MOS-Office can export to the SVG-format and to the OpenOfficeDraw-format (.odg). For the ODG-import my opendokument.library will be required. Furthermore there is already a pagestream.library for the export to PageStream >= 4.1. Postscript and PDF I will have to put in a library but should not be a bugger problem. Thus MorphOS finally will get a connection to modern formats just like OpenOffice.
