AmigaOS 4: Printer driver for Google Cloud Print
For AmigaOS 4 Chris Young has released the printer driver gcp.device which makes it possible to use Google's Cloud-Print service. "gcp.device enables the Amiga to print directly to any of these cloud- connected printers, using the PostScript printer driver."

AmigaOS 4: Workbench Explorer 1.1
Mark Ritter's Workbench Explorer (WEx) is a file browser for AmigaOS 4. Its preview function can show pictures, GIF-animations and read texts but also can play music files of the mp3 format which since last month in USA is off-patent (Screenshot).

There are different styles for WEx, it has tabs and shortcut menus and can download files via FTP. Some addons also are available - using the PicFlow.gadget the preview function then also can play movies.

In the commodity mode, WEx can be automatically started after the computer has booted (WBStartup) and then runs in background. Using the hotkey (standard LAmiga + E) the file browser opens.

TCP stack: free update to Roadshow 1.13
The Roadshow TCP/IP stack for the Amiga has been updated to version 1.13 and is available immediately. An updated demonstration version is available, too, as well as the updated software development kit.

A free update is available for customers who are using Roadshow version 1.12, upgrading it to version 1.13. Note: if you are still using Roadshow versions 1.8 or 1.11 then you will need to upgrade to version 1.12 first before you can upgrade it to version 1.13.

The changes in Roadshow 1.13 are as follows:
  • Polish localization files were contributed by Tomasz Potrykus, which can be installed as part of the update process.
  • The "ping" command has been updated to support new options, which can be used limit the number of test packets sent, either by time or count. The time interval measurements taken and displayed were upgraded and are now much more accurate than they were before.
  • The "traceroute" command shares the same time interval measurement improvements with the "ping" command.
  • The "wget" command no longer crashes if too little stack memory is available in the shell. Also, the data throughput rate calculation now works correctly, which both affects the display of the estimated remaining transmission time and the data rate limiting feature of the "wget" command. Finally, the short form command line options (e.g. "-q" for "--quiet") never worked correctly. This has been fixed.
  • Several related bugs were fixed within "bsdsocket.library", the "SampleNetSpeed" and "ppp_sample" programs, which could lead to memory corruption or seemingly random crashes.
  • The "ConfigureNetInterface" did not process the DHCPUNICAST parameter correctly. This has been fixed.
  • The specially optimized versions of "bsdsocket.library", "ppp-serial.device" and "ppp-ethernet.device" for use on Amigas with CPUs other than the MC68000 and MC68010 can no longer result in crashes if they are used on systems for which they are not suited.
  • The "TCP:" handler leaked memory whenever it was opened. This has been fixed.
  • How much memory "bsdsocket.library" will use for incoming network traffic can now be tweaked. This is helpful for applications which keep running for day or weeks on end. Previously, "bsdsocket.library" could end up allocating much more memory than strictly necessary, causing other active software to run out of free memory. Because the choice to spend as little memory as possible comes with a cost (slightly lower data throughput), this option is not enabled by default.
  • The software development kit has been updated, fixing bugs in the example source code, the "wget" command, as well as replacing the inline header files for the GCC 68k compiler.
  • The reference documentation has been updated.
The "ReadMe" file of the "Roadshow" update archive contains more detailed information about the contributors who helped to make this update possible, as well as more detailed descriptions of the changes.

The update archive does not contain the updated documentation or source code. Please download the demonstration version and/or the software development kit, respectively, to find the new material. (cg)
