Software News : Hollywood 4.8 now with Linux support

Airsoft Softwair is happy to annouce a special Easter egg for the Amiga community: Hollywood 4.8 is out now! This update contains mostly bug fixes and one great new feature requested by many people: Hollywood is now able to compile executables for Linux systems!

With the ability of compiling for Linux systems Hollywood finally comes full circle because it now supports all major desktop operating systems. All in all, Hollywood can create programs for nine different platforms now: AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, WarpOS, MorphOS, AROS, Windows, Mac OS X (Intel), Mac OS X (PowerPC), and Linux (Intel). A totally unique feature in the Amiga world!

Great care was taken to make Hollywood compiled executables as portable as possible across the many different Linux distros. Package dependencies were kept down to an absolute minimum: Only plain X11 - which should be present on any Linux system - is required by Hollywood executables! All other dependencies like gtk and ALSA for sound output are entirely optional: If they are installed, Hollywood will use them, if not, Hollywood will just run without them. Thus, Hollywood compiled executables will usually run straight out of the box on most common Linux distros. You definitely won't have to install dozens of packages before being able to run Hollywood executables!

Please visit the Airsoft Softwair webpage for screenshots of Hollywood 4.8 running on Gentoo (KDE), Ubuntu (Gnome), Fedora (Gnome), openSUSE (KDE) and the brand-new GNOME 3.

Hollywood 4.8 is Airsoft Softwair's ultimate Multimedia experience and a must-have for every Amiga user who wants to use the full power that is in his machine. Hollywood is available on a CD-ROM and as a download version. If you order the download version, you will have to download an ISO image which you need to burn on CD-R then. If you already own Hollywood, you can buy a discounted upgrade version. Please visit the Airsoft Softwair webpage for more information.
