Javascript: TAWS - The Amiga Workbench Simulation 0.30
TAWS ("The Amiga Workbench Simulation") is a Javascript simulation of the Amiga-Workbench 1.0 - 4.1 for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and Apple-WebKit-Browser (including Odyssey).

Any kind of feedback the author Michael Rupp would very appreciate. His work can be supported by a donation from inside TAWS.

Changes of version 0.30:
  • TAWS Early Preset Selection:
    • New menu to select a preset upon starting and booting directly into its configration.
    • By checking «Remember Selection» the selection can be saved (Cookie).
    • By checking «Skip This Next Time» the selection will be be skipped from now on (Cookie).
    • The corresponding setting in «Preferences» is «Skip preset selection on startup» and can be reset there.
    • The menu can fully be controlled by keyboard (cursor keys and shortcuts according to the underlined characters).
    • Clicking «Cancel» will get you to the kickstart image.
  • New Preset: «BetterWB»
  • OS 4.1: keyboard shortcuts for the prefs programs. The following gadgets can be controlled by keyboard pressing the key that's underlined in the corresponding label:
    • Checkbox: check/uncheck
    • Textbox: set focus while «Return»/«Enter» removes focus
    • Cycle: cycle forwards or backwards if shift key is pressed
    • Slider: increase value or decrease value if shift key is pressed
    • Button: click (supported since OS 3.5 and higher)

    • Moving settings to their own preferences:

    • «PowerWindows patch» has been relabled to «Off-screen window dragging»
    • «SolidWindows patch» has been split to:

    • up to OS 2.0: upper left corner
    • up to OS 3.1: upper left corner, but below the menubar
    • ab OS 3.5: centered
  • Prefs programs: from OS 2.0 and higher the labels have colons.

  • Bugfixes:
    • Improved positioning of the drive icons

    • Presets: minor color corrections
    • Preferences:
      • Style «OS1» removed for this is not implemented yet (bug since v0.29)
      • Changing the transparency of inactive windows was not set to windows that have been moved previously.
      • After loading icon's style and size from the cookie at startup, the values were only set to drawer icons and not to Workbench icons as well.
    • Deactivated the browser's autocompletion and spellchecking on textboxes
    • Font: changing the default font doesn't affect already opened AmigaShell windows anymore.
    • MagicMenuPrefs: improved position of the %-character
    • Chrome / Firefox / Opera: fixed menu shortcuts
    • MS Edge: fixed gradients in OS4-style (menubar, buttons, cycles)
    • Firefox & AmigaShell: correction of the word wrapping (not yet fixed for Internet Explorer and MS Edge)
    • Odyssey & AmigaShell: workaround for a bug: the character «zero width space» should actually be invisible but is rendered as a square.
    • NetSurf: «JavaScript support is not sufficient» guru is displayed as intended.
    • Safari (Windows): fixed button click that is invoked by a keyboard shortcut (f.e. when creating a new drawer).
