MorphOS: DTP program Calimero 3.9 also creates charts
Version 3.9 of Carsten Siegner's DTP program Calimero now also can create bar and pie charts:


The new chart function has the following features:
  • each spreadsheet can have unlimited charts
  • charts address spreadsheets in the whole document
  • charts can have unlimited data levels
  • charts require a spreadsheet
  • charts exist as objects, so it is possible to save documents as ODT/EPUB/PDF
  • charts can be printed

Encryption: AmiSSL 4
A team led by Jens Maus (e.g. YAM) has released version 4 of the OpenSSL-port AmiSSL, which can establish encrypted connections on the Internet - e.g. loading a website using HTTPS.

AmiSSL 4 is based on the latest OpenSSL 1.1.0d providing new encryption algorithms - existing Amiga software has to be adapted to be able making use of them.

AmiSSL is free software, the source code is available on Github. So far versions for Amiga 3 and 4 has been released. For porting it to MorphOS and AROS, help is needed.

Hint of the editorial staff: If you are using IBrowse, you should enable TLS for improving the compatibility to encrypted websites also without using AmiSSL-4. (cg) (Translation: dr)
