Software News : AmiCygnix V1.1 released
Posted by cygnusEd on 2012/6/21 18:07:26 (1258 reads) News by the same author
Software News

A new version of the AmiCygnix packages AmiCygnix-Base and AmiCygnix-Tools are now available on OS4-Depot. An existing installation of AmiCygnx 1.0 can be updated - older software package can still be used.
Upcoming AmiCygnix software will depend on this new version.


AmiCygnix is a Unix environment, which makes it easy to port Unix software with or without a GUI.


The main enhancements in the base package:

  • Support of programs compiled with GTK+ 2.24 and GTK+ 3.x.
  • A new (experimental) display driver, which opens the X11 display in a normal intuition window on the workbench.
  • The X server can now be launched several times without problems. So you can now - for example - launch several applications separately on the workbench.
  • Upcoming software and included programs in the "Software" drawer provides a new script for a standalone start in an own window or screen. A special version of myX11Setup is included for this.
  • A new icon theme for AmiCygnix programs in AmigaOS 4.1 style.
  • All workbench icons in these packages are now in AmigaOS 4.1 style.
  • The previous version of AmiCygnix could not be installed on partitions formatted with JXFS. This bug is now solved.


  • The optional tools package contains newer versions of the so far included software and a new settings editor for the desktop background (all compiled with GTK+ 2.24):

  • The file manager "ROX-Filer 2.10"
  • The web browser "NetSurf 2.8"
  • The text editor "Leafpad 0.8.18.1" with UTF-8 support
  • The image viewer "GPicView 0.2.2"
  • The PDF viewer "Xpdf 3.03"
  • The settings editor for GTK+ 2 and 3 "LXAppearance 0.5.1"
  • The settings editor for the Openbox window manager "ObConf 2.0.3"
  • The settings editor for the desktop background "Gsetroot 1.1"


  • Snapshots:

    It was time for that, thanks for the update Edgar. Hope that this version is slightly faster too than before.
    Kicko

     Re: AmiCygnix V1.1 released
    Yes, it should be faster. The GTK+ 2.24 port is faster than my previous port of GTK 2.10, the server is a bit optimized and the new display driver for workbench windows should be faster while moving windows and scrolling.

    Don't expect too much, just a few improvements

    many thanks. I'll check it out tomorrow on my A1-X1000. The old version was fast enough, I'll report back on the new update.

    Donation will be forthcoming as well.

    I have downloaded both the base and tools and installed, I have to say very impressed, runs on a better screen resolution (1920 x 1080) and seems much faster.

    Thank you for all the hard work, much appreciated

    Happy testing. And thank you in advance

    @all

    Good news for me, that it seems to work well. It's hard to test such a large project.

    Thanks Edgar. Is there a way to get Pidgin a bit faster?

    The pidgin port is old and in parts obsolete. I would have to make a new port of the current pidgin version using my latest libs. It should be faster after that.
    But there are such so much other programs I want to release, I have not much time to do it, sorry.

    A new version of Pidgin would be very nice. AmiCygnix feels faster and more usable now. I hope we get more programs in the future. Great effort and thanks again.

    Thank you very much! (he, he, I never would )

    @Joeled

    Some new and some updated programs will follow. Maybe also Pidgin - depends on the feedback.
