AmigaOS 4: video player Emotion (Alpha)
Entwickler-X have released an early alpha version of the video player they are working on called "Emotion". They stress that it's far from being finished yet and that a lot of functionality - including the menu - is still missing. Due to the status of the release, bug reports are not required yet.

As Thomas 'imagodespira' Claus explains (German), Emotion has to be run from the shell with the video you want play as a parameter. By doublicking the video during playback, the player switches to fullscreen mode. (cg) (Translation: cg)

AmigaOS 4: Enhancer Software 1.1
Press release: A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce a major update to the Enhancer Software for AmigaOS 4.1 systems. The Enhancer Software version 1.1 upgrade demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the AmigaOS platform and is available as a free download from AMIStore for existing registered users. New customers can either purchase a digital download from AMIStore or a buy a boxed CD from selected Amiga dealers.

The original Enhancer Software package was met with positive acclaim when it was released earlier this year. The v1.1 update is the culmination of four months hard work by the dedicated team who have added a whole host of new function-ality and features.

Applications & utilities

Apart from significant updates to key software utilities such as MultiViewer v2.6, MultiEdit v1.3, AmiPDF v1.34, X-Dock v0.35 and TuneNet v2.4 there are new additions such as the ‘themeable’ Clock utility (v53.7) with a wide selection of ‘skins’ included.

RadeonHD driver update

The RadeonHD driver has once again been updated. The new versions, v2.18 (Plus Edition) and v1.17 (Standard Edition), includes several maintenance updates and increased compatibility for additional graphics card firmware support.

Warp3D Nova, the Shader based 3D graphics system, has been significantly updated and v1.29 now supports MipMapping, Stencil buffering and many other new functions. It is complemented by the much awaited premiere of the OpenGL ES 2.0 library on AmigaOS.

New datatypes & features

The new Sound Datatype, which includes MOD, MPEGA and WAV, is a significant improvement over earlier versions. It now supports multi channel 16-bit/32-bit/64-bit (floating point) streaming with internal support for up to 19 named channels. Apart from adding full MultiViewer support, we have been working closely with third party application developers to ensure that the new datatypes deliver the added functionality they require for their own software titles. The Ringhio Notifications server has been under continuous development since the last Enhancer Software release. The latest version (53.60) adds the possibility of a ‘Progress Bar’ support inside the notification “bubble” pop-up.

Future proofing

With one eye to the future, the building blocks of applications, ReAction compatible gadgets and classes have been extended and many of the main programs have been converted to use the new gadgets. The new Clock app is based on the new flexible and powerful clock.gadget

Puzzle game: G.E.M.Z. 2.1
Fabio Falcucci's G.E.M.Z. is a commercial puzzler for all Amiga systems, where blocks with the same colour have to be positioned next to each other to make them disappear. New in version 2.1 are additional animations and the possibility to modify the game by editing text based configuration files. The sound files are now a separate download, the game will retrieve them when ran for the first time. (snx) (Translation: cg)
