Clever... is it sort of like subpixel font rendering to achieve the effect?

I would loan him X5000 if he was in same country.

@amigakit

No he didn't. Olsen did. He just added a few lines and copy pasted some other bits from other clibs.

There's zero value in him wasting his time on this if he decides not to make it open source.

@rwo

there's nothing to be gained by not releasing it as open source, under BSD style license like half the code that's already in it was licensed

Re: Classic Amiga development vs NG
Not too shy to talk

Developing and maintaining an ObjC runtime is itself a huge job, and no one is going to port the MorphOS one to OS4. Once you've got it it can help a bit because it so happens it's very developer friendly, moreso than say MFC or .Net runtime or Java. But since there isn't much non-macOS/iOS ObjC code out there it wouldn't help much in increasing the available ported software catalogue. For that one would be better off doing what Haiku is doing with their Win32 and X windows compatibility layers.

@joerg

What's your problem? You tell him he's wrong, then prove that he's right by making it clear you mean only when running OS4 on classic hardware, which was obvious to all readers to not be what Kjetil is talking about. Leave him alone.

I'd say it's just as follows:
- there's a common SDK distribution. So you can expect everyone to have the same toolchain and same includes and libs in same location
- Better C libs (newlib, clib2, and even other options) means better POSIX support
- Newer GCC, though you're still better off using cross compiler, but at least unlike 68K you're not forced to choose between either ancient C compilers or making your own bastardized GCC build
- Those two things above (better C lib, better compiler) together with bigger main memory mean easier to port cross platform code from the mainstream platforms, and more readily available defacto standard core libs e.g. cairo has been ported

Apart from that it's basically the same isn't it?

Thanks. it could be interesting to use this for new Python port, not least because then each instance of Python runtime could use shared library and save some RAM if you're running multiple scripts.

Any thoughts on difficulty of making this compatible with OS3?

Re: Qt 6 progress

when i've seen this kind of error before it's because there are duplicate symbols, and the compiler and linker differ in which one they give priority to. what happens if you globally change the name of the function?

Anyone think the pagestream dude would be open to a crowdfund to buy the source and open source it? Not like he's making anything from it otherwise... and assuming he's still alive - last i heard he went off to live in a shack in the desert or something

If you look around I think you'll find there are already amiga-ized versions of some of these at least
libxml2: 2mb
libjpeg: 1.5mb
libfreetype: 1mb
libwebp : 0.5mb

Perhaps Trevor should have thought of that before picking an awkward CPU chip or perhaps he can sponsor some work to bring an up to date web browser core to Amiga.

Tried v2 downgrade and/or compositor turned off to try and make my R7 250 based card work (Dell 8570 card) but no joy. Still locks up machine after boot.

@nbache

Seems to happen almost every time there's an AmiUpdate new item. The dude who manages it doesn't configure them properly on the server leading to corrupt nonsense downloads. Apparently he's never heard of 'testing'

I have wondered if it might be possible to merge it with a recent code of SeaMonkey, since that still uses XUL
