AmigaOS 4 / MorphOS: Cinnamon Writer 0.90
Claus Desler's Cinnamon Writer is a text processing software whch can import RTF and DocX format files. It also has a spell checking and can restore lost documents. Thanks to a hardware donation of William 'Fraggle' Morris, version 0.90 as beta version is also available for MorphOS for the first time. An AROS-port will follow soon.

The graphical user-interface was rewritten and now is completely based on MUI. "Other improvements include a new memory and indexing system allowing you to work on very big documents on machines with only little memory." (snx) (Translation: (dr)

AmigaOS 4: StormC5-Editor available
Press release: Wehrheim, Germany, May 5th, 2013. - We are glad to present the first component of the StormC5 IDE, StormC5ED. In the tradition of the previous versions, we placed high values in the development of StormC5ED ensuring the popular Amiga look-and-feel. We set high prorities on high speed and modern editor functionalities. Due to the intensive use of operating system functions of AmigaOS 4.1, StormC5ED is available exclusively for the new Amiga operating system and will be further aligned it in the future. We would like to point out that much of the Proceeds of the StormC5 editor will be incorporated in the future development of the StormC5 environment.

Join now, in a new kind of editing on AmigaOS 4.x!

StormC5ED is available via download or CD. The download version costs only 29,95 Euro and the CD version 34,95 Euro. Order at once from our Online-Shop.

The following outstanding capabilities are offered by the new StormC5ED:

All keyboard shortcuts correspond to the AmigaOS specifications, toolbar images are supported, tooltips, etc.

AppWindow/AppIcon support:
Dragging a file icon in an editor window or on the editor appicon will open that file.

Extreme fast syntax highlighing:
Lightning fast syntax highlighting, Recognized words can be highlighted with colour and/or font attributes.

File classes:
The driver for the syntax highlightning are applied as external modules. As a result, the editor is extensible for future tasks.

File classes do currently exist for the following languages:
  • C/C++ (minimum requirement SDK 53.20),
  • Catalog-Descriptions (for use with CatComp),
  • AmigaGuide(R),
  • ARexx
For recognized words the relevant definition/Quick-Help is displayed.

In a document an umlimited number of bookmarks can be set and jumped to with a keyboard shortcut.

Folding parts of a document via definable fold marks: For example, so in C/C++ files, the method bodies are folded away for clarity and better readability of the code.

MDI- or TDI-Userinterface:
Texts can be displayed either in a separate window for each text (MDI - multiple document interface) or all together in a single window with Tab control (TDI - Tabbed Document Interface).

Automatic indentation (atm. only for C/C++):
On typing of a character that initiates or terminates a block, the editor can react with different variations to increase or reduce the indentation ("keep your source code clean and tidy").

Visualization of tabulators, spaces and linefeeds:
Optional displaying of these characters to find missing tabs in a "makefile", for example.

The GUI of the editor is available in 7 languages:
In the basic package, the StormC5Ed interface has already been translated into 7 languages: German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Danish and Russian are currently available. Other languages will follow.

More information about StormC5ED find you at our product website. (snx) (Translation: (dr)

AmigaOS 4: AttachMail 1.4/FastCompress 1.7/FastView 1.1/NetDock 50.5/SysMon 3.1
Guillaume 'zzd10h' Boesel has updated five of his AmigaOS-4-programms AttachMail, FastCompress, FastView, NetDock and SysMon.
  • With AttachMail you can add files to your favorite mailer by Contextual Menu (RightMouse button), (YAM and SimpleMail). In version 1.4 the the PNG icons were changed to Amiga Icons
  • FastCompress includes 4 tools to compress files and drawers with 2 clicks (LHA, LZX, ZIP, 7z). With version 1.7 the PNG-Icon-module is not required any longer as well. Additionally AmigaOS 4.1.3 is not required any longer since the availability of the AboutBox.mcc is checked
  • FastView is a MUI program who allows you to show your pictures by selecting files or drawer with right mouse button or by drag'n drop. Additionally to the two changes mentioned above, the speed was improved and a search area was added.
  • NetDock is a docky to monitor the network activity which also does not use PNG-Icons any longer
  • SysMon is a MUI-based (little) system monitor. The Ragemem benchmark was reworked and a lot of Amiga configurations (for comparison) were added
