Software News   Hollywood 6.0: Epiphany out now
  Software News posted by softwarefailure on 22-Feb-2015 11:48:54 (2530 reads)
Three years after the release of Hollywood 5 Airsoft Softwair is proud to announce the immediate availability of Hollywood 6: Epiphany. Hollywood 6 is a massive update with a myriad of new functions. The most important new feature is the complete abstraction of the core components display, audio and DOS. These can now be completely replaced by plugins which opens up totally new possibilities. For example, it is possible to replace Hollywood's inbuilt display driver with a custom implementation now. A plugin, which uses this new interface to make OpenGL available to Hollywood, will be released shortly.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of new features in Hollywood 6:

- Complete abstraction of the display, audio and DOS core components
- Support for multiple monitors
- Support for OS-native menu bars
- ARM-Linux is now supported (e.g. for the Raspberry Pi!)
- Stand-alone versions of Hollywood for Linux and Mac OS X are now included
- Videos can be used as normal Hollywood layers now including all effects and filters
- Hardware-accelerated video playback on AmigaOS 4 with the new RadeonHD driver
- Full AmiDock support including animated dockies and context menus
- AHI driver completely rewritten: it no longer blocks the audio of other applications now
- Hollywood's IO implementation is ready for streaming now
- Script execution on AmigaOS is significantly faster now
- Support for multiple Xservers on Linux
- Massive extension of the plugin interface: its size has doubled!
- Support for HTTP upload and authentification
- Inbuilt vectorgraphics renderer for perfectly smooth antialiased shapes
- 300kb of new documentation
- New example scripts
- Standard library set encompasses almost 700 functions now!
- Lots of other changes, optimizations and bug fixes

Hollywood 6: Epiphany is the ultimate Multimedia experience and a must-have for all creative people. Hollywood is available on a CD-ROM and as a download version. Both versions include Hollywood builds for all supported platforms. 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.

Hollywood is the ultimate bridge between all the different AmigaOS compatible platforms and the other three modern desktop systems, Windows, Mac OS, and Linux! Additionally, Hollywood also supports the Android platform. A truly unique feature is the ability to cross-compile native executables for many different platforms including: AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, WarpOS, MorphOS, AROS (x86), Windows, Mac OS X (x86 & PPC), and Linux (x86 & PPC & ARM). You don't even have to own these platforms in order to compile executables for them. It's enough to run Hollywood on one of the supported platforms and then compile programs for all the others! Only Hollywood makes it possible. If you want to learn more about Hollywood, please visit the the official Hollywood portal which also has a forum for all questions concerning Hollywood.

All this makes Hollywood The Cross-Platform Multimedia Application Layer. Join the Multimedia revolution and get your personal copy of Hollywood 6: Epiphany now because life begins at 6.0!

software OS4   exFATFileSystem 53.7 released for AmigaOS 4.1FE
  software OS4 posted by salass00 on 13-Feb-2015 12:18:28 (1130 reads)
Available for download from OS4Depot:

The file system source code is also included under GPL license.

A couple of advantages over NTFS3G are faster file I/O operations as well as case insensitive file names.

AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition is required because exFAT needs the new diskio.library as well as a newer filesysbox.library in order to work.

Announcement   Recovered tunes released in memory of Elektr0n1ka
  Announcement posted by Kicko on 7-Feb-2015 21:36:53 (1084 reads)
My friend Vlado Ribic left us in 2010 (born 1977). Personal problems, health, depression etc.

I managed to resurrect at least 6 of his tunes but everything older was erased. It's not until now 5 years after that I used the time to upload the mp3s to my homepage and youtube. We have been using names like Transplant, Emulate, Elektr0n1ka (Vlado), Psykicko (Me) etc.
