AmigaOS 4: ADRipper 1.12
ADRipper can "rip" audio-CDs and convert them into MP3- or OGG-format as well as using version 1.12 now also into AAC-format.

Additionally updated memory allocation routines to use OS4's new memory system and updated GUI initialization routines to use new Intuition features have been added.

Since this new version 1.12 Daniel 'Trixie' Jedlicka has taken over the development and maintenance which involves further changes. All plugins now are included in the programm archive. Due to a change of the API, the previous encoder versions cannot be used any longer.

The program window snapshotting was removed because it was buggy. Besides, the programm icon is no longer added to AmiDock automatically at startup and the documentation has been assembled in a single AmigaGuide file.

AmigaOS 4 / MorphOS: PDFToolkit 1.1
Lazar Zoltan's PDFToolkit - not to be confused with pdftk from the Linux-world - can add PDF-documents or devide them into single pages. Additionally it is possible to overlay pages to add page numbers or toplines and footers into a document afterwards. In version 1.1 single pages now also can be rotated.

PDFToolkit was created with Python and is available for AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS. Additional to the basic installation of Python, the pyPDF-module developed by Mathieu Fenniak are required and is automatically downloaded with an existing network connection. Under MorphOS additionally PyMUI is required. The software was not tested under AmigaOS/68k.
