Picture galleries from various Amiga shows (1993-2002)
Andreas Magerl writes:  When I recently tidied up my hard disk a little, I found some pictures from the Amiga shows 1993, 1994, 2000, 2001 and 2002. The pictures are online in the Amiga Future Gallery immediately.

Should someone still have pictures from Amiga shows and would like to make these available to us, then please write us a short E-Mail. (cg) (Translation: (cad)

MUI Clone: AFA OS Zune 1.0 (final beta-test version)
Bernd Roesch has released an update to his AmigaOS 3 port of the MUI clone Zune (screenshot). Since Microsoft also offers a product called Zune now, the author has decided to distribute his project as "AFA OS Zune" (AOZ) from now on. AOZ can be used at the same time as MUI, no modifications are made to the MUI files.

In case no more errors emerge, the current version will be released as 1.0 (final). New in 1.0 (final beta-test version):
  • Support for skins. The skin settings are included in the archive and can be loaded with the AOZ Prefs program. No bitmaps are used, so that the archive remains as small as possible.
  • In order to use a program with AOZ instead of with MUI, you launch it as before and then launch the AOZ Promoter with CTRL+Shift+Z. With "Add Task," the task name of the MUI program is added to the Promoter database, whereby the corresponding application uses the AOZ libraries instead of MUI in the next launch.

Programmers who want to support AOZ should first try to open the zune.library. Should this fail, since, for instance, AOZ is not installed, then the muimaster.library should be used.

All sources and project files of AOZ are part of the archive, further information can be gathered from the accompanying Readme file. (cg) (Translation: (cad)

AmigaOS 4: Vector-drawing program MindSpace 0.94
MindSpace is a drawing program with which flowcharts, UML diagrams (Unified Modeling Language), mindmaps or vector images can be created, among other things. Improvements in version 0.94:
  • Loads more shapes useful for UML and ER diagrams
  • User MSOs: just in case the shape you need isn't there - you can very easily create it yourself and add it to the interface. MindSpace even knocks up a quick icon for you.
  • Improved svg, png and pdf output (registered users only)
  • Improved text and html output (registered users only)
  • More keyboard shortcuts
  • Usual plethora of tidying up, bugfixes etc

The AmigaOS 3 version, announced some time ago, is not currently being worked on, because of lack of time. (cg) (Translation: (cad)

AROS for AmigaOS: AFA OS 3.94.1
Bernd Roesch's project "AROS for AmigaOS" is an extension of AmigaOS 3.9 that uses libraries that were ported back from AROS. New in version 3.94.1:
  • In AFA prefs ENVARC: gets an entry in the directory field of the file requester when doing "Save Prefs". This should solve the problem that the correct directory is shown but the file is saved in the current directory.
  • The text function uses now an own stack and not the task stack. As Truetype fonts with antialiasing need a bigger stack and the input.device stack is used for the drawing of BOOPSI classes (or by patches such as Birdie or VisualPrefs) there's no risk anymore that the input.device stack can overflow.

AmigaOS 4: HivelyTracker
HivelyTracker is a tracker based on the AHX-format (screenshot). AHX was developed in the 90es to write music tracks similar to the typical chip-sound of the SID (sound-Chip of the C64).

HivelyTracker can import and export modules and instruments in AHX-format but will save them in a seperate format which offers additional possibilities. Compared to AHX HivelyTracker offers the following advantages:
  • Multichannel (4 to 16 channels)
  • Per-channel stereo panning
  • Two commands per note instead of one
  • Ring modulation
  • A more feature rich editor
