m68k assembler support: Plugins for JetBrain and Visual Studio IDEs
Recently we reported, that Chris 'platon42' Hodges is developing a (e.g. USB-Stack Poseidon) Plugin for the integrated development environment (IDE) of Jetbrains (e.g. CLion and IntelliJ for Windows, Mac OS and Linux) providing support for m68k assembler. It equips the IDEs with syntax highlighting and code refactoring capability for Motorola's instruction set.

This project also is available on GitHub and meanwhile the plugin is available as version 0.7 providing the following changes:
  • Bugfix: 'btst' with pc-relative and weird immediate mode was missing (courtesy of Yann).
  • Bugfix: 'movem' with pc-relative mode was missing for weird immediate mode (courtesy of Yann).
  • Bugfix: Special registers for address mode matching only worked with lower case register names (courtesy of Yann).
  • Enhancement: Assembler syntax with implicit immediate 1 for shifts and rotations no longer cause syntax errors (courtesy of Yann).
  • Enhancement: Documentation for instruction with special register shows specific register expected.
  • New: Added documentation provider info for global labels. Shows directives and comments above.
  • Bugfix: Fixed BNF for labels with preprocessor statements.
  • Disabled: 'END' detection was breaking parsing, causing havoc.
  • Full changelog available at Github project site.
There is also a second, similar approach of the JetBrains employee Yann Cébron. However, there is no public version yet.

For Microsoft's IDE Visual Studio (among other supporting Visual Basic.NET, C, C++, C++/CLI, C++/CX, C#, F#, SQL Server, TypeScript and Python as well as HTML, JavaScript and CSS), there is also an extension providing support for Amiga's assembler language. (dr)

Controlling Sonos speakers: SonosController 1.1 (OS3/4, MorphOS)
Known for his workbench simulation TAWS, Michael Rupp had released his first Amiga program at the beginning of August, which is used to control Sonos speakers: SonosController ( reported). Now he has released version 1.1 for his program written in the programming language Hollywood, which for the first time is available for AmigaOS 3 in addition to AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS and includes the following changes:
  • NEW: first release for AmigaOS 3.x besides 4.1 and MorphOS
  • NEW: lots of performance improvements to make it usable on a 68060 cpu, resulting in being blazingly fast on PPC-Amigas.
  • NEW: MUI 3.8 compatibility (instead of 5.0)
  • NEW: zones (= rooms) are now saved in the config file so when starting the app the next time no network scan is necessary, resulting in a much quicker startup.
  • NEW: to save on network traffic and CPU load, loading of the current queue can now be deactivated in the Preferences.
  • NEW: network scan can now be cancelled and it's no longer possible to start a second scan while one is already running (this led to speakers being listed multiple times in v1.0).
  • NEW: queue lists are now cached in memory and are only reloaded if a change has been reported by the according UPNP event.
  • NEW: various zone values are now cached in memory and are no longer reloaded when switching between zones.
  • NEW: loading of album art for radio stations
  • NEW: timeout for UPNP subscription has been increased from 10 minutes to 1 hour (same as with the original Sonos app).
  • NEW: added progress in percent while loading a list in the music source
  • NEW: added the possibility to cancel loading a list in the music source
  • NEW: "Settings" menu to accomodate the menuitems "Preferences..." and "MUI..."
  • NEW: "About MUI..." menuitem to follow the MUI styleguide
  • CHANGED: shortcuts for "Next" / "Previous" from Ctrl-LEFT/RIGHT to Alt-LEFT/RIGHT because on an Amiga keyboard the Ctrl key is quite far away from the cursor keys.
  • REMOVED: browsing the music library by song: it was useless and took ages, it's much better to use the search instead.
  • FIXED: renewal of UPNP subscription as well as unsubscription
  • FIXED: TV input is now handled correctly.
  • FIXED: improved handling when clicking like mad into the track position slider.
  • FIXED: disable play button if action "Play" is not available
  • FIXED: lots of minor bugfixes
