Hollywood plugin: Plananarama 2.0 released

Press release: Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, continue Hollywood's 20th anniversary celebrations with yet another major new release: Plananarama 2.0. Plananarama is the magic plugin which allows Hollywood scripts to be run on classic Amiga hardware without any graphics board. Once Plananarama is installed, all Hollywood scripts will 'automagically' run on palette screens as well! All resolutions are supported - from 8-bit LowRes to 1-bit productivity SuperHighRes Interlace.

Version 2.0 is a major update which makes use of many new features offered exclusively by Hollywood 9. By integrating seamlessly with Hollywood 9's new palette interface, it is now possible to write scripts which make use of the Amiga's custom chip hardware for a much better performance. Here is a non-exhaustive list of the new features in Plananarama 2.0:
  • support for Amiga hardware sprites
  • direct access to color registers for all kinds of effects like color cycling and fading
  • true palette based drawing without any color remapping
  • Unicode support
  • screen menus are now supported
  • drag'n'drop support
  • guigfx.library and render.library are only needed when in remapping mode
  • added a fully featured documentation in AmigaGuide, PDF and HTML
  • added three new example scripts demonstrating the new features like hardware sprites
  • several bug fixes and other improvements
Plananarama 2.0 is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. For its basic functionality Plananarama requires Hollywood 6 but all the new functions introduced in version 2.0 require Hollywood 9 which is why we highly recommend upgrading to Hollywood 9 if you haven't done that yet.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Hollywood we also offer a special 20 euros discount on the full version of Hollywood for a limited time only. This is the perfect chance for all people who don't own Hollywood yet to grab their own copy and to explore the wonderful world of Hollywood and be fascinated by the gigantic functionality of this unique piece of software and all of the plugins that come with it!

Word processing: FinalWriter update status
Just about a year ago, we last reported on the update for Finalwriter first announced by new rights owner Timothy "Terminills" Deters in 2015. Yesterday, the developer briefly outlined the current status on Amigans and MorphZone respectively:

According to them that there would now have been a "feature freeze" and it would now only be about bug fixes. Furthermore he explains that the AmigaOS4 port depends on whether he has the money to pay a developer for the port after the release of the AROS and MorphOS versions. In total there were 5 developers working on the current version until Deters owned it. The changes so far:
  • RTF updated
  • Libharu implemented(PDF Saving/Printing Support)
  • MySpell(Updated Spell Checker). Spell checker can now work real time
  • Libcurl support for direct printing
  • 64Bit fixes
  • Modernizing layout
  • P96 support
