MUI: NListtree V18.6 Beta 5
Carsten Scholling released beta version V18.6 Beta 5 of the MUI class 'NListtree'. This class displays data in a tree structure. For this time the update contains bugfixes and useful enhancements.
  • Bugfix: Multiselection bug fixed, which allowed entries to be dropped on thier children entries (crash!)
  • Bugfix: Position calculation rewritten. No more accidently deleted entries.
  • Bugfix: Drop-Typ "Sorted" never occured
  • Bugfix: Renaming the user field wasn't possible.
  • Bugfix: MUIV_NListtree_Insert_ListNode_ActiveFallback (see Autodocs).
  • Bugfix: Inserting open nodes into one closed leaded to wrong position calculation (reported by Luca 'Hexaae' Longone, thx)
  • New: Second find method implemented (user field). This searching function is rather meant as a backup to have different searching possibilities, if needed. (Hooks must not always be set again).
  • New: MUIA_NListtree_ShowTree implemented (tree on / off). Useful for different sorting orders for which a tree structure maybe isn't wanted.
  • New: Spanish localisation by Javier de las Rivas.
  • New: New Trigger-Attribute: MUIA_NListtree_SelectChange.

TechReview: Ten Passed Technologies
«Not every disappearing technology deserves that fate. Sometimes the "losers" have an elegance and simplicity the "winners" lack. Here are ten examples.»

In the article Amiga is mentioned as third along with the picture of an Amiga 1000. Nick Montfort talks about the Amiga's good multitasking - but now which is being implemented in MacOS X - and other good features we don't want to miss on our computers. It is also mentioned that an new Amiga is already under construction. New Ermentrud Demo Released ! Timo Kloss on ANF mailto:Timo@inutilis.de http://www.inutilis.de Inutilis Software has released an new demo version of the adventure game "Ermentrud" for CyberGfx. This demo is ready for download on their website. There are many innovations compared to the initial demo version due to the entire story control system working now, too.
  • Three locations (screens)
  • Two dialog partners (shoes)

New InstallerNG
I have uploaded a new version of InstallerNG to the support page (and to Aminet). A stupid bug in the message system of the built-in BOOPSI GUI has been fixed, and new is the CALL-PLUGIN function which allows the user to implement own functions in InstallerNG by a typed API and to use it from a script. Example source code for this as well as for all of the other API modules are included. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Bonds v1.78 BETA3 with New Homepage
Sven Droege wrote:
The users of the financial software Bonds had to count on long waitstates for updates. Since today there's a new homepage under the known address www.programmed-excellence.de online. Through a server change the access probabily should be improved drastically. Besides that there's a new update v1.78 BETA3, which only contains some small bugfixes. Additionally for registered users there's now the tool "quotations updater", that can be used to update quotations also without Bonds.

The email-address of the author has also changed. It's now Sven.Droege@programmed-excellence.de. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

HTMLread v.48
Gunter Hinrichsen has released an update of 'HTMLread' on 17. December 2000 and an update of the Genesis plug-in for HTMLread on 14. December.

HTMLread is an extension for the email client YAM that allows reading HTML mails. YAM can't display e-mails written in HTML for now, as they are sent by Netscape, Eudora or Outlook. HTMLread discovers, converts and sends these e-mails to a HTML viewer.

Some changes have been made in the new version: Two bugs were fixed, it's become smaller, condition images are supported, the download manager now doesn't open his condition windows anymore when you're offline, the downloadmanager now knows the option QUIET, better looking condition GIFs and some more changes.

The Genesis plug-in toggles Genesis automatically on- and offline again for the download of web-images. Download:

The move became necessary as the web-space Neervoort needs to keep the page running wasn't sufficient anymore at T-Online coupled with other providers of web-space. (unk) (Translation: (unk)
