Toolbar icons: Amiga Image Storage System 2
Amiga Image Storage System (AISS) is a system for managing toolbar pictures under AmigaOS and comes with a big collection of default icons. The pictures are saved in two separate directories (standard images and further icons added by the user) which can be accessed via a common assign.

Important: AISS 2 is incompatible with earlier versions! The document 'Uninstall.html' explains how to remove older versions. (cg) (Translation: wk)

Charset conversion: codesets.library 6.0
The codesets.library allows applications to use codeset/charset tables via a unique interface and to convert between different charsets, e.g. within an email client from UTF-8 to ISO-8859-1.

Applications already using the codesets.library are among others the Instant Messenger 'Epistula' and the current "developer" versions of the known mailer software YAM.

The library (recently released under the LGPL) is available as version 6.0 for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4 and MorphOSt. Next to the porting to AmigaOS 4 were numerous changes made in this version making it in some points incompatible with earlier versions. (cg) (Translation: wk)
