30.Jun.2004 editorial staff Comment script improved once more
The latest comment script from June the 26th has been improved again due to several reader's hints and advices.


Bug fixes:
  • A session already runnig had been started again sometimes which led to an error message.
  • URLs within the comments with upper cases other than 'A' got no working link for clicking (Petra Struck).
  • At URLs within the comments which include a '=' the generated link was incomplete and not working (Martin Heine, Christoph Gutjahr).
  • When clicking on "Notify staff about this message" button the session ID was not passed through, thus leading in a loss of the login status.
  • The [Permalink] and "Notify staff about this message" button reside now in the brackets in the upper line together with (News message, ...) (oGALAXYo, _PAB_, Christoph Gutjahr).
  • "Notify staff about this message" button as graphic (oGALAXYo, cbs). Suggestions for a clear icon are welcome.
  • Colour for the admin comments is now '#009999' (Petra Struck).
  • New: alt-Text 'Notify staff about this message' is repeated as title attribute of the button (DaFreak, Christoph Dietz).
If you encounter problems with the new script or discover bugs we kindly ask you to report this in detail (including information about the used OS and browser) to our staff.

IBrowse: New IBPreferences custom class available
Testing under OS4 revealed a long standing bug in the IBrowse 2.3 preferences custom class, which manifested itself as a crash as soon as the preferences were launched. After a short testing period, the IBrowse development team is pleased to announce the availability of the new bugfixed custom class.

The developers recommend that all users of IBrowse 2.3 install the new custom class, even if they do not have the crash under OS4-Pre, or even use OS4, as the bug is still present and a potential problem.

Note: Those selected users that also tested the fix prior to release should also install this final release in place of the test version they were sent. (cg)

Kickflash OS4 firmware updated
Version 1.6 of Kickflash OS4 is now available on the website of Coyote Flux and our support page. This is a major update with many improvements over the last version.

The firmware now supports multiple Kickstart remapping. The remapping of 512KB Kickstarts works with the MapROM feature of the Cyberstorm MK1/MK2/MK3/PPC, A3640 and the BlizzardPPC boards. Additionally it supports Retro Remapping to make any Amiga start in Kickstart 1.3 mode when the joystick button is held during reset. This requires a 34.005 Kickstart ROM and uses Relokick's internal relocation table to rekick the system. This lets you disable the caches by pressing the left mousebutton during the Kickstart 1.3 floppy boot screen, which makes a lot of older programs compatible with faster systems.

Many more resident modules can now be installed at the same time, and many more filetypes are supported, such as the latest (non-public) ram-handler version 51.6.

Other changes have been made to the hunk handling, AmigaOS 3.9 reset handler code, memory handling and the OpenOXYPPort support code.

Special thanks fly out to Peter Riede, who has helped a lot during the development and testing of this product.
