AROS: Distribution Icaros Desktop 2.2.6
Paolo Besser has released an update of his AROS-distribution Icaros Desktop. In version 2.2.6 the muimaster.library written by Neil Cefferkey was added providing "support for ESC-A method of embedding images into strings, which basically allows rapagui-based applications to show images into buttons and other GUI gadgets". Besides, now it is possible to record debug logs and updates of DCRaw, VIM and AmiCast Player were added as well as the ZuPaPlayer. Adding EasyRPG Player, "a great interpreter ala ScummVM for games created with RPG Maker 2000 and 2003" is supposed to be one of the highlights of the new version. Finally, for players the games "Kidnapping of Princess Pri" and "Grimps: Squeaking of the Dead" are now included. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Hollywood 8 - Supremacy released

Press release: After 12 months of development, Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are proud to present the best Hollywood ever: Hollywood 8 - Supremacy.

Version 8.0 is a massive update with many new features and bug fixes. The most important new feature is full RapaGUI support on Android, which allows you to create GUIs for Android devices using Hollywood. As always with RapaGUI, only native widgets are used, so the GUIs look and feel completely native. This is a truly unique feature because no other software allows you to create native GUIs for Amiga (MUI), Windows, Mac OS X, Linux (GTK+), and Android! On top of that, there are tons of other new features, bug fixes, and improvements.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of new features in Hollywood 8.0:
  • Android core completely rewritten
  • New network adapter plugin interface
  • Ready for powerful new soon-to-be-released SSL/TLS plugin
  • Support for IPv6 in the network library
  • Serial port support on all platforms including Android
  • Multiple displays now supported on Android
  • System notifications are now supported
  • Icon support
  • Action Bar now supported on Android
  • Menu bars are now supported on Android
  • Better support for HiDPI monitors
  • Full RapaGUI support on Android
  • Ready for RapaGUI 2.0
  • Hardware-accelerated drawing, scaling, and transformation on Android
  • Camera support on Android
  • Directories can be monitored from script code
  • Hollywood scripts can call into Java code on Android
  • Device vibration support on Android
  • Whole directories can be linked to executables
  • Gyroscope and accelerometer support on Android
  • Ready for Hollywood APK Compiler 3.0
  • 80 new pages of PDF documentation, now 1034 altogether
  • Lots of other changes, optimizations and bug fixes
Hollywood 8 is the ultimate Multimedia experience and a must-have for all creative people. Hollywood is available on CD and as a download version. Both versions include Hollywood for all supported platforms. Buying Hollywood gives you a single-user license for all 15 platforms supported by Hollywood. If you already own Hollywood, you can buy a discounted upgrade version. People who bought Hollywood 7.1 in 2019 can request a free upgrade.

Hollywood is the ultimate bridge between all the different AmigaOS compatible platforms and the other three modern desktop systems, Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux! Additionally, Hollywood also supports the Android platform. A truly unique feature is the ability to cross-compile native executables for many different platforms including: AmigaOS 3.x, AmigaOS 4, WarpOS, MorphOS, AROS (x86), Windows (x86, x64), Mac OS X (x86, x64, PPC), and Linux (x86, x64, PPC, ARM). You don't even have to own these platforms in order to compile executables for them. It's enough to run Hollywood on one of the supported platforms and then compile programs for all the others! Only Hollywood makes it possible.

If you want to learn more about Hollywood, please visit the the official Hollywood portal at the title link which also has a forum for all questions concerning Hollywood. (snx)

Personal Paint: Update to version 7.3c for registered customers (Update)
For registered customers of version 7.3 of the 8-bit paint program Personal Paint, originally developed by Cloanto, A-EON Technology will release a free update named PPaint 7.3c for AmigaOS 3.x and AmigaOS 4 soon, written by Andy Broad.

  • Add polygon mode to grab brush tool
  • Update Itialian translation (contributed Luca Longone)
  • Fix long filename support
  • Fix buffer overflows in brush scaling
  • Fix buffer overflows in brush shearing
  • Extend internal brush structure to include shear status values so that when shearing brush twice in a row is starts from the current sheared state and not the original brush state
  • Fix incorrect calculation of visble files in builtin requester resulting in an occasional corrupt looking filename at end of file list. (personal_req.library 1.6)
Update: (21:45, 12.02.19, snx)
As AmigaKit clarified meanwhile, the release of PPaint 7.3c is not imminent since the update is still being betatested for now. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Legal dispute: Amiga Inc. transferred rights to company of Mike Battilana
In the legal dispute between the Amiga and parties and Cloanto, recently Hyperion doubted the legality of Cloanto's involvement. According to the latest court documents (PDF file), on February 1, 2019, Amiga Inc. transferred "all worldwide rights, title and interest in and to all AMIGA-formative trademarks, including but not limited to the "Exclusive Licensed Marks" as that term is defined in the 2009 "Settlement Agreement", and the "Boing Ball" design mark" to C-A Acquisition Corporation" which with its only director Mike Battilana has the same owner as Cloanto.

For several years Cloanto has collected the heritage of Commodore ( reported) in order - according to Cloanto - to preserve it. To the the "Exclusive Licensed Marks" also belong the trademarks "AmigaOS", "Amiga OS", "AmigaOne" and "Amiga One".

Therefore Cloanto will apply for admission of C-A Acquisition Corporation as another plaintiff. Besides, Cloanto as sucessor of Amiga Inc. again reasserted to have the right to sue Hyperion for breach of contract. The former transfer of the copyrights from Amiga Inc. to Cloanto again is documented in court (PDF files: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Furthermore Hyperion tries to prove some of the claims of the Amiga parties and Cloanto as void because they interfere into other countries' jurisdiction. This is countered by the statement that Hyperion explicitly got the worldwide license rights and therefore is internationally bound to respect the settlement agreement - which would have been broken by the attempt to register Amiga related trademarks in other countries.
