| AmigaOS 4: Blitzbasic replacement BlitzMax|
BlitzMax is one of the replacements of Mark Sibly's BASIC dialect BlitzBasic, which among others allows object oriented programming and adapts the graphic API to OpenGL. The source code of BlitzMax was released in April 2014. Now an Amiga user has ported the compiler to AmigaOS 4.
Graphic support for Max2d with MiniGL as well as Audio driver and networking support are already implemented. Support for joysticks and MaxGUI still is missing. BlitzMax requires an installed AmigaOS-SDK. The compiler has to be built up from the sources by the users themselves.
The author has pointed out that this is the "first Amgia contribution". He also wrote: "The level of effort was considerable as the back-end of PPC compiler had to be re-coded correctly for System V ABI vs the original Apple OSX ABI. AmigaOS applicable defines where required in Build system and Runtime but seems to be working well. I appreciate all feedback good and bad." (cg) (Translation: dr)
