AmigaOS 4: Gui4Cli 3.8.7 creates user-interfaces for Rexx and DOS scripts
With D. Keletsekis' Gui4Cli you can create complex, Gadtools-based user-interfaces e.g. for DOS or Rexx scripts. Examples can be found in the GUI gallery or on Joseph Duchâtelet's Gui4CLI-site.

Joseph Duchâtelet has ported the program to AmigaOS 4. An installation of the AmigaOS 3 version of the program is required and the Gui4Cli-executable have to be replaced by Duchâtelet's OS4-build. (cg) (Translation: dr)

AROS: Patch 03 for Icaros Desktop 1.3.3
For version 1.3.3 of his AROS-distribution Icaros Desktop, Paolo Besser has published a new update which includes new system files as well as the latest PaperCuts.

  • fix for commodities like FKey: they don't appear iconified on the desktop anymore
  • fix for italian translation: it will now be re-enabled in Wanderer
  • added iconify button to Zune windows title bar (must be enabled by user)
  • fix for ICE, Icaros Classic and Icaros Blue themes to support iconify button

The following problems are known:
  • Wookie Chat, PSI prefs and other programs crash on de-iconification
  • InstallAROS (and maybe others) crash on iconification
  • SimpleMail crashes if double-clicked on its custom AppIcon
  • no fixes to problems reported with icon.library
  • iconify gadget has no image in other Icaros decorations, so default "3.1" rectangle will be used

Aminet celebrates 20th anniversary
On January 16th 1992 an user called Urban Müller posted announcement of a new FTP-server to the newsgroup comp.sys.amiga.misc: There not only several Amiga files could be found under but it also is the official FTP-site for Amiga Unix. This first announcement have already included the typical upload lists.

From this little server hosted on an Amiga 3000 UX which should not be accessed "between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m." by external users so the administrators could use it for its own purposes it has become the center for Amiga software as well as the biggest software archive of the world with 34 servers and about 100 MB uploads per month.

You can find a detailed description of the history of the Aminet on Aminet-Wiki. (cg) (Translation: dr)
