AmigaOS 4: Enhancer Software 1.5
Press release: A-EON Technology is pleased to confirm immediate download available of the Enhancer Software 1.5. This is the sixth public release and can be downloaded for free using the Updater tool for existing Enhancer Software owners. All three variants of the Enhancer Software have been updated: Plus, Standard and Special Edition.

Many updates have been implemented in version 1.5, both major and minor bringing the package to higher standards. Warp3D Nova and OpenGLES 2 library have had major updates including significant work towards enabling the recent GL4ES wrapper and game ports to work. MultiViewer: If Warp3D Nova is available, it is now used for 2D image rendering and processing. This means that the old Picasso96 graphics system is no longer used by MultiViewer for rendering 2D images so the entire range of video memory on the graphics card can be used by MultiViewer.

  • Commands
    • SystemReboot v53.7 (updated)
  • Devs
    • HDAudio sound driver v6.23 (added)

Emulator: FS-UAE 3.0
After providing several beta versions, now Frode Solheim has released a "stable" version of his Amiga emulator FS-UAE. Ports are available for Windows, Mac OS X and several Linux and BSD versions. On his website Frode Solheim wrote: "I've already started the work on next development series. The biggest change is updated emulation core from WinUAE 4.2.1, which brings with it new features. But I will be looking at other improvements as well. If the stable series is to boring for you, stay tuned for v3.1.0dev." Detailed changes of version 3.0:

Changes in FS-UAE 3.0 (compared to 2.8):

  • Fixed JIT direct access on modern Linux distributions.
  • FS-UAE default is now to show a 692×540 image, not stretched to fill screen.
  • Built-in configurations for many more game controllers.
  • New option whdload_quit_key to gracefully quit slaves.
  • Added more shaders (compiled/ported/written by guest.r and rsn8887).
  • Updated emulation core from WinUAE 3300b2.
  • Several new configuration options (see Changelog for details).
  • Many more smaller fixes and updates (see Changelog for details).
Changes in FS-UAE Launcher 3.0 (compared to 2.8):
  • Plugins can provide files for offline use (WHDLoad, JST, SKick, etc).
  • Added support for .gz/.adz/.roz/.xz-compressed files.
  • Support WHDLoad versions 18.4 and 18.5 (game database).
  • Revert fullscreen_mode to default when upgrading from older versions.
  • Use https for all more and communication.
  • Support hd_requirements = xpkmaster.library.
  • Fixed problem on Windows where devices were sometimes not detected.
  • Make configurations list wider when window width is quite large.
  • Try to use config from game database when launching with a WHDLoad archive.
  • Extract WHDLoad arguments from .info file when loading a WHDLoad archive.
  • Sync “unpublished” games from the online game database, option to show.
  • Many bugfixes and smaller improvements (see Changelog for details).

Emulator: WinFellow 0.5.8 RC1
Release candiate 0.5.8 of the Amiga emulator WinFellow has been released.

New features

  • support for RDB hardfiles was implemented; while creating a new hardfile from the WinFellow GUI still creates "plain" hardfiles, a Rigid Disk Block can be created using tools like HD Toolbox
  • the default naming scheme for filesystem devices has been changed from DHx: to FSx: to avoid naming conflicts with existing RDB hardfiles
  • a 64 bit build is now provided; the NSIS installer will install either the 32 or 64 bit version depending on the operating system that is used
Bug fixes
  • improved handling of hardware interrupts and blitter delays; fixes freezes that could occur during installation of Workbench in earlier 0.5.x versions
  • fix wrong selection of render function after return from menu when application did not write to bplcon0 every frame; fixes garbled graphics in a Legend cracktro when returning from menu
  • replaced alternating patterns for unmapped memory with proper random numbers
  • CLR reads before write; fixes loading of Outrun and a fast-mem test in Last Ninja 2
  • improve delay caused by logging in screen-mode enumeration (could amount to many seconds with multiple screens)
  • running in an environment with very slow graphics framerate, like a VM, could cause a deadlock; set wait time after event reset to avoid race condition
  • fix an issue where screenshots would occasionally not be taken in Direct3D graphics mode; this may also have impacted the ability to use Amiga Forever's clipping editor
  • fix an issue where applying a new model preset would leave multiple blitter radio buttons selected
