|Network solution: Amiga Explorer 9|
Press release: Cloanto, Amiga software developers since 1986, released today version 9 (18.104.22.168) of Amiga Explorer, the Amiga-PC networking software that first saw the light in 1997.
New features include:
The "AE" tool, which gives Windows command-line access to Amiga Explorer configuration and data sharing features, has also been extended to support the new features. Type "AE Help" to see a list of command-line options.
Upgrades are free to all Amiga Explorer and Amiga Forever Plus Edition customers. Amiga Explorer is also free to try under a shareware license. Registration is appreciated, but many features, including the command-line mode, are fully functional in trial mode.
Traditionally, updates to the Amiga (server) side of Amiga Explorer have also been made available on Aminet. This file too has been refreshed, and is now able to patch any version released since 1997 to the latest 22.214.171.124 build. As the new Amiga version includes functionality to support updates originating from the Windows (client) side, Amiga-side patch releases like this one could become less necessary in the future.
The full Amiga source code and the Windows "core" source code is available to a closed group on GitHub. Windows core features include the data exchange features and the command-line user interface, i.e. everything that is needed to implement, study or support the full protocol, including the buildable Visual Studio project used for Cloanto's distribution. The Windows namespace extension and its installer are not currently part of this set. The plan remains to extend the open source availability as certain milestones in the data exchange protocol are met. (cg) (Translation: dr)
