  3 comments News   Former Commodore UK Bosses David Pleasance and Colin Proudfoot Join FriendUP News posted by danwood on 3-Feb-2016 16:45:46 (1215 reads)
The two former joint managing directors of Commodore UK have joined the new Amiga-inspired FriendUP platform.

After first meeting the Friend team at Amiga 30 in Amsterdam, both have been very impressed with the project and agreed to join as senior managers in the company. Colin is now CFO, with David becoming Director of International Sales and Marketing.

David and Colin were once the favourites to purchase the entire Amiga technology, after the downfall of Commodore in 1994. 21 years later, this is the first time the pair have worked together since Commodore.

FriendUP is a next generation web application technology for connecting users and developers to resources in a unifying way. The first product is an open source application called the Friend Unifying Platform, and takes many design decisions and concepts from the Amiga OS.

David Pleasance and Colin Proudfoot have recorded an interview with Dan Wood on Youtube, to explain why they wanted to be involved.

Software News   Hollywood APK Compiler 1.0 released
  Software News posted by softwarefailure on 31-Jan-2016 10:54:55 (1105 reads)

Airsoft Softwair - the hardest working men in code business - are proud to present a brand new add-on for Hollywood 6.0: The Hollywood APK Compiler. This program does what many people were waiting for: It allows the conversion of Hollywood applets into stand-alone APK packages that can then be published on the Google Play Store or distributed in an other way. Once the Hollywood APK Compiler has been set up, the conversion of a Hollywood applet into an APK file takes only a few seconds. Additionally, the Hollywood APK Compiler can also install the generated APK file onto an Android device connected via USB.

The Hollywood APK Compiler is currently only available for the Microsoft Windows platform because it requires the Java SE Development Kit (JDK), Apache Ant and the Android SDK and NDK toolchains, all of which are available for free download on the web. Versions for Linux and Mac OS X might follow in the future but Amiga versions are impossible because of those dependencies. Hollywood 6.0 is also required.

The Hollywood APK Compiler comes with a convenient GUI that allows you to convert your Hollywood applets into stand-alone APK files with just a few mouse clicks. A detailed documentation of all the program's features is also included. The APKs generated by the Hollywood APK Compiler will run on all ARM-based Android devices that run at least Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread).

The program's license also allows you to sell the apps created by the Hollywood APK Compiler without any restrictions or royalties. So there is nothing stopping you from getting rich quickly with your Hollywood applets on the Google Play Store now! Programming and publishing for Android has really never been so easy!

So get ready for Android development and purchase the Hollywood APK Compiler now on the official Hollywood portal!

This release was brought to you by Airsoft Softwair - the hardest working men in code business.

software OS4   New software releases by OnyxSoft
  software OS4 posted by Deniil715 on 31-Jan-2016 11:31:16 (397 reads)
OnyxSoft releases a an update to MPlayer-GUI with better support for LiveForIt's MPlayer.

MPlayer-GUI v1.60 - (OS4) GUI for MPlayer for OS4.

- Finally fixed the control panel arexx commands for those video drivers that has proper arexx handling implemented. Please not that not all versions of MPlayer or every video driver supports arexx commands, but this works with LiveForIt MPlayer and the comp modes at the very least, maybe other modes and versions too.

- Realtime control panel sliders for seeking and volume. It doesn't seek only after you let go of the slider, like before. Note: Not all video drivers supports it.

- MPlayer-GUI now gets the available audio and video drivers from MPlayer itself to make sure only available drivers are presented in the GUI. It does this by executing "mplayer -vo help -ao help". Please report if your video or audio driver selection is empty!!

- Added wpa video driver to default video drivers.

- Time display in the control panel.

- Fixed the unfreed signals on exit.

If you see a bug or have a suggestion, please don't hesitate to drop me an e-mail!

Amiga Future raffle: A little hint

!!! Attention. The raffle has ended. It is only the sake of completeness with the Newsletter !!!

Currently we have a raffle on the Amiga Future Website.

<a href="">original message</A>

Actually, we thought that the solution however is fairly simple.
But so far, unfortunately, only wrong answers have been received.

But of course we want someone wins the prize.
Our office is already full with posters ;)

That's why gvive you one small tip:

If you consider what's so special about the issue 118, you must keep in mind that the first issue of the Amiga Future did not start with number 1, the issue was number 11.

Amiga Future raffle finished

The raffle on the Amiga Future website is completed.

The poster package has won Stephan S. Congratulations!

The correct answer for the raffle was "The Amiga Future is 18 years old"

Amiga Future - is now 18 years old

As of January/February issue 118 of 2016, the Amiga Future magazine is 18 years old.

Quite a while for a printed magazine, surpassing old prophecies that Amiga Future would not survive more than a few months.

Now, after 18 years, we have set ourselves another goal, to noticeably increase the circulation numbers of Amiga Future.
To this end, we will be announcing, throughout the year, various special deals & offers.

One of these deal announcements can be found in the Amiga Future Issue 118 on page 29.

However, until everything is finalised, we have provided some useful links with information about the Amiga Future for you.

Perhaps this has already convinced some users to take out a subscription for the Amiga Future. ;)

Have fun with it,

Andreas Magerl
