Javascript: TAWS - The Amiga Workbench Simulation 0.10
TAWS - The Amiga Workbench Simulation is a JavaScript simulation of Amiga Workbench 3.x for Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Changes in the new version 0.10:
  • copying icons when dragging across drives (completely recursive and with checking for existing files, please note the different behaviour in 3.1 and 3.5)
  • when moving a disk into a drawer, it's converted to a drawer
  • Amiga-like message-requesters (for simple messages like «About...» or to enter the name of a new drawer, etc.
  • most menu commands are now supported and these are new:
    • Workbench / Redraw all (animated)
    • Workbench / Update all (animated)
    • Workbench / About...
    • Window / New drawer (now properly with requester and all. Please note the different behaviour in 3.1 and 3.5)
    • Window / Update (animated)
    • Window / Clear selection (3.5 only)
    • Window / Clean up (3.1., try this out in the «Test Suite»)
    • Window / Clean up by / Column (3.5, try this out in the «Test Suite»)
    • Window / Clean up by / Name (3.5 only, try this out in the «Test Suite»)
    • Window / Clean up by / Type (3.5 only, try this out in the «Test Suite»)
    • Window / Resize to fit (3.5 only)
    • Window / Snapshot / Window (although not saved in the cookie yet)
    • Window / Snapshot / All (although not saved in the cookie yet)
    • Icons / Copy (completely recursive)
    • Icons / Rename
    • Icons / Snapshot (although not saved in the cookie yet)
    • Icons / UnSnapshot
    • Icons / Put away
    • Icons / Delete
    • Tools / ResetWB (it's just an animation actually, but I really like how it turned out)
    • Tools / Reset TAWS prefs (to delete the cookie and reset all to my default values)
  • new settings in the prefs program:
    • CycleToMenu-patch
    • choice of icon border: none, small, mid, large
    • choice of AmigaOS 3.1 or 3.5: this has influence on the menu and the general workbench behaviour. And it also replaces the OS3.5 icon-dragging patch.
  • true amiga-like animated lasso
  • truer animation when opening a drawer an listing its contents
  • support for the Ctrl- and Alt-Keys in OS 3.5 for selecting or deselecting icons
  • no more 'drop-not-allow' mouse pointer in Internet Explorer
  • I changed some default values, so TAWS now looks much nicer when visiting for the first time
  • «Test Suite» to try out things like sorting, moving or copying
  • some bugfixes and minor code improvements
Feedback of any kind is always welcome. (snx)
