The Roadshow TCP/IP stack for the Amiga has been updated to version 1.13 and is available immediately. An updated demonstration version is available, too, as well as the updated software development kit.

A free update is available for customers who are using Roadshow version 1.12, upgrading it to version 1.13. Note: if you are still using Roadshow versions 1.8 or 1.11 then you will need to upgrade to version 1.12 first before you can upgrade it to version 1.13.

I have uploaded my project Workbench Explorer (WEx) to Aminet, OS4Depot, and Amiga On The Lake.

It is a modern file browser with all the usual features, plus some unique ones no other browsers have:

* Preview Pane
* Tabs
* Fully customizable
* Plays MP3s, view images, read text files, etc.
* Different view styles

My web site,, is far from complete. But the forum is open for posts.

Workbench Explorer (WEx) is free, but donations are greatly appreciated.

Software News   Hollywood APK Compiler 2.0 released
  Software News posted by softwarefailure on 1-May-2017 12:32:11 (722 reads)

Airsoft Softwair - the hardest working men in code business - are proud to present version 2.0 of the Hollywood APK Compiler. This program 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.

Version 2.0 is a major update that adds support for the Gradle build system. A few months ago, the Android SDK build system was changed from Apache Ant to Gradle. The Hollywood APK Compiler now supports this new build system. Version 2.0 also erases the dependency on Cygwin meaning the Hollywood APK Compiler can be used without Cygwin now. Finally, version 2.0 also allows you to set the Android target version. If you set this to 3.0, your app will no longer be marked as "Designed for phones" on the Play Store. This update is provided free of charge for all licensees of the Hollywood APK Compiler and can be downloaded from the restricted download section.

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). Since Java, the Android SDK, Android NDK, and Gradle are not yet available for Amiga compatibles, the Hollywood APK Compiler currently only runs on Windows.

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 News   G2D Lib for Hollywood released
  Software News posted by Allanon on 27-Apr-2017 8:27:57 (694 reads)
I've released G2D v1.8 Library for Hollywood.
G2D is an include file for Hollywood MAL, it is a 2d-oriented library that adds a lot of commands, objects and methods to handle 2d graphic areas but the best feature it has (at least in my opinion) it's a full featured skinning system that also allow multi-layered skinning.
This library has been heavily used with HGui to build gadgets and to make skinning possible.

The library is provided with all needed dependancies (all written in plain Hollywood) and some examples.

The library is FREE.

Once again there will be a Classic Computers’ exhibit at Maker Faire Bay Area 2017! Once again my fellow exhibitors and I will be displaying classic personal computers for fairgoers to enjoy. To celebrate its 35th anniversary, I'll be bringing in a Commodore 64 with JiffyDOS (or RAMLink with JiffyDOS), 1541 or 1571 drive, and SD2IEC card drive. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, I’ll have an Amiga 2000 with a Blizzard 2060 50 MHz board, Amiga OS 3.1, 128 megs of Fast RAM, 2 megs of Chip RAM, SCSI CD-ROM drive, SCSI controller board with 8 megs of RAM, NewTek Video Toaster, Digital Processing Systems Personal TBC, A2065 Ethernet card, Digital Processing Systems Personal Animation Recorder (PAR), 4 gig SCSI main hard drive, and 500 meg SCSI hard drive for the PAR. Also because of attendee demand, I’m bringing back the Texas Instruments TI-99 4/A with Peripheral Expansion Box, various cards, and various cartridges, including the new SD card cartridge.

Software News   RapaGUI 1.1 released
  Software News posted by softwarefailure on 23-Apr-2017 10:47:56 (701 reads)

Rapid Cross-Platform GUI Development On All Islands

Airsoft Softwair is proud to present version 1.1 of one of the most popular Hollywood plugins: RapaGUI. RapaGUI is a cross-platform GUI toolkit that allows the creation of native (!) GUIs for AmigaOS (MUI), Windows, Linux (GTK), and Mac OS based systems! GUI layouts in RapaGUI are conveniently defined in XML files which are then converted into full-blown GUIs by RapaGUI on-the-fly. It just doesn't get any easier!

RapaGUI supports all the widgets you need to create modern GUI applications, including multi-column listviews, treeviews, tabbed page widgets, toolbars, status bars, text editor widgets, menu bars, HTML views and much more. The highlight of RapaGUI, however, is certainly its inbuilt Hollywood MOAI class. This class allows dynamic embedding of complete Hollywood displays into GUIs which can be used to combine Hollywood's powerful multimedia functionality with RapaGUI's GUI abilities into one powerful application.
