Patch and commodity collection: MCP 1.49c
MCP 1.49c already has been available for two years but only as part of Amikit. The update fixes a bug if MCP is used with an emulator with "Virtual Mouse Driver" enabled: This function now is compatible with the MCP patch "Solid Window Moving & Sizing". The MCP patch CycleToMenu does not work with Virtual Mouse Driver enabled: According to the MCP author this problem must be fixed in the emulator.

MCP 1.49c only is distributed as update for existing MCP installations. If you still have not MCP installed first you have to download and install the archive MCP 1.48. (cg) (Translation: dr)

MorphOS-Tools: DateTime, Mousecoords, PixelPicker, TopTasks and Notch
The team of #amigazeux has released some new screenbar plugins for MorphOS:
  • DateTime is a configurable replacement for MorphOS titlebar clock and shows the date and time.
  • Mousecoords will show current X and Y mouse coordinates on the screen.
  • PixelPicker reveals the information about a pixel (or at least its colour) in a neat display in the screen's titlebar.
  • While clicking TopTasks it opens a window showing the top 10 tasks currently hogging all your precious CPU time.
  • Notch basically displays a very popular and configurable Notch in the screen title.

AmigaOS 4: X11 environment AmiCygnix 1.4
Edgar Schwan's AmiCygnix is an Unix environment for AmigaOS 4. It is not an emulation but all programms are nativly compiled for AmigaOS 4. AmiCygnix provides a directory and data structure which is similar to a Unix installation.

After a long break of development now new versions of the basic archives have been released. Mainly bugs were fixed which did prevent X-Servers from correctly working on new Amiga systems.

New in AmiCygnix-Base:
  • All display drivers and the X server binary were revised to fix the following problems:
    • With newer graphics cards like the Radeon HD 7xxx the colours of the display were wrong. This was completely fixed in the drivers picasso96clonewbdb and picasso96wb.
    • Since AmigaOS 4.1 final Update 1 it came to program crashes, if the graphic driver picasso96clonewbdb was used. Is fixed now.
  • The display driver picasso96clonewbdb can now also open 32 bit screens internally, however, the data is still processed in 16 bits.
  • The print command "lpr" now supports the printout via Turboprint whereby the print quality is increased.
  • Updated SSL support over OpenSSL and GnuTLS. The included Trusted Certificates have been updated.
  • Many minor improvements and bug fixes.

New in AmiCygnix tools:
  • The browser NetSurf has been relinked with OpenSSl 1.01o. Many SSL keyed pages could not be opened anymore. The problem is now largely eliminated.
  • The image viewer GPicView is now available in the latest version 0.2.5.

File system: smbfs 2.1 released after two years of development
In last two years smbfs was comprehensively revised and rewritten for the SMBv1/CIFS protocol based on the historical and official documents.

The new smbfs 2.1 improves the robustness and compatibilty of the file system which e.g. can access NAS systems and corresponding computers. The support of Unicode, big files (> 4 GB) and resuming of interrupted connections to the data server were added. A lot of bug fixes were done as well. (snx) (Translation: dr)
