Modern text engine for Hollywood: Pangomonium 1.0 supports Emojis
Press Release: Airsoft Softwair is pleased to announce the immediate availability of a powerful new plugin for Hollywood: Pangomonium - the ultimate text engine for Hollywood. Pangomonium is a plugin of epic proportions and the first plugin to require Hollywood 10. Pangomonium contains an ultra-modern text engine that is at the cutting edge of technology and can draw text in almost any language in the world.


In addition, Pangomonium also supports fonts with colored characters, making it finally possible to write programs on Amigas that support colored emojis! Pangomonium is based on the established Pango and Cairo libraries and also allows Hollywood scripts to call all Pango/Cairo functions directly. Of course, there is also a simpler interface to draw text via Pangomonium without having to deal with Pango/Cairo in depth. Pangomonium has been two years in the making and is now finally ready for release, exclusively for Hollywood 10.

Here are just a few of Pangomonium's impressive features:
  • Text can be drawn in almost any language in the world, including complex fonts and layouts such as bi-directional text, left-scrolling fonts, vertical layouts, etc.
  • Support for fonts with color characters (finally emoji support on the Amiga!)
  • Two high and low level interfaces for beginners and advanced users
  • Hollywood scripts can use all Pango and Cairo functions (over 500 of them!)
  • seamless integration into the text interface of Hollywood 10 allows very easy use
  • the plugin can also replace Hollywood's vector graphics engine
  • extensive documentation in AmigaGuide, HTML, CHM and PDF formats (over 300 pages!)
  • over 30 ready-to-run example scripts
And best of all, Pangomonium is available to download for free from the official Hollywood portal. At least Hollywood 10 is required. Thanks to Hollywood's platform-independent plugin system, there are versions for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Linux, macOS and Windows. (cg) (Translation: cg)
