Software News

Welcome to the eigth release of my Unix environment "AmiCygnix"!

Version 1.6 brings some innovations and updates. Some bugs have been fixed again. Due to the update to GTK+ 2.24.32, AmiCygnix 1.6 will be a requirement for future software packages.

New in 1.6:

* Update to version 2.24.32 of GTK+, the latest version of GTK+ 2. In addition
to some new features, the drag 'n drop in GTK+ 2 applications now finally
works. The corresponding programs have to be linked again. Programs like
Rox-Filer or Gimp benefit greatly from this. Therefore, please pay attention
to updates of these programs!

* Full support for Unix locale strings. So you can now select the country, the
encoding and special variants in addition to the language. You can also
select multiple locales.
All drivers, all AmiCygnix tools and the X server have been revised for
See the documentation "README.Language.pdf" in the directory "Cygnix:Docs"!

* With the following display drivers for the Workbench, the size of the window
can now be reduced:

- workbench
- workbench2
- picasso96wb
- picasso96wb2

The content can then be moved using a scroller.
This function can be deactivated via myX11Setup!

* Support for version 3.16.3 of GnuTLS, the latest version of the SSL/TLS
layer. Support for SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.3 is new. The Trusted Certificates
included have also been updated. Problems with programs like NetSurf or
Claws-Mail should be solved with it. However, the corresponding programs
must be relinked.

The following packages are affected:

- NetSurf
- Claws-Mail
- Pidgin
- uGet
- Audacious (scrobbler plugin)
- Gimp (file-uri plugin)
- UFRaw (FITS saver)

Therefore, please pay attention to updates of these programs!

* Support for LDAP through OpenLDAP 2.4.49. Is now integrated in libcurl and
will also be used in Claws-Mail.

* Support for AISS in the menus of the Workbench display drivers. The size of
the icons can be set using the "MenuImageSize" environment variable.

* Revised myX11Setup with improved help function. Thanks to Michael Christoph!

* Italian translation updated in many AmiCygnix scripts. Thanks to Samir

* New Spanish translation of the texts in the Workbench display drivers.
Thanks to Javier de las Rivas!

* New catalog in Russian language for myX11Setup. Thanks to Eugene Sobolev!

* The topic "Clearlooks" is now the standard topic for GTK+ 2 and the window
manager "Openbox". The old themes "Amiga-BlueTabs-xxx" or "AmigaOS4" are
still included.

* Fixed a problem when starting the AmiCygnix desktop via myX11Setup.

Amicygnix can be found at OS4Depot.
