Hello,
All my tools (SysMon, FastView, aTunes,etc) are now on AMISTore in an unique package zTools

Thank you to report problems, suggestions,etc in this thread.





Updates in zTools v1.0

in Multimedia category :

-aTunes 2.2

* Added a "Copy to" option in PlayLIst window.
All files in the Playlist are copied to another location (RAM:aTunes by default)
After the copy, the destination drawer is opened and all the files are selected.

It could be useful to prepare the burning of a CD.

* Added "Size" in MB of each song in the PlayList window

* Added "Numbers" and "Size (MB)" of the Songs in the PlayList window

* Added a clean-up menu option (in Edit sub-menu) to remove orphaned records of the SQLite aTunes.db (using VACUUM SQLite function).
The % gained db size is indicated in a message when db clean-up is completed.

* Added a new setting to specify the type of library that aTunes will display at startup, Music or Stream.

* Fixed a DSI when loading PlayList by "Load" button (PlayList window)

* Fixed all PlayList window buttons at the same width



-FastView 3.3

* Added a Settings window accessible from the Contextual menu option "Settings"

All the Tooltypes are removed.

The Settings window is automatically opened if ENVARC:zzd10h/FastView.xml pref file is not present (usually, at the very first start of FastView)

Each time that the Settings window is opened, the Prefs file is read.

"Save" button saves the Preferences in Pref file AND immediately apply changes

"Use" button ONLY apply changes, Prefs are not stored.

FastView reacts to 2 more Applications messages :
APPLIBMT_OpenPrefs = Loads the Prefs from Prefs file and opens the Settings window
APPLIBMT_ReloadPrefs = Loads the Prefs from Prefs file

* Added a "Rename" option menu in SinglePicture mode (with a new shortcut 'R')

File name is selected and to hit "Return" key will validate the name change (no need to click on "Rename" button)

If the rename failed, the Workbench Title Bar will blink (no requester, message will be isssued)

Thanks to Lionel 'Lio' Muller for the suggestion

* Added a ROTATE_INPLACE option in SinglePicture mode to allow to NOT rotate picture directly on the original file. default = YES (original file is replaced).

Thanks to Lionel 'Lio' Muller for the suggestion

* Added a new executable, FastView_WBArgs, that detects WBStartup argument.
To allow to work with programs like Photoframe.docky

* Added a slider in the "Grab" tab to specify the quality of the screen grab

* Added "Free grab" of screens that are not "Workbench Screen"

* Added shortcut 'Del' key to delete picture in SinglePicture mode

* Added a check at startup to control that NList.mcc is at least at level 20.138

* Fixed Capture function to allow to grab screens/windows without title
Screens without title are named with their memory adress x'12345678'
Windows without title are named with their width x height

* Reestablished the default quality of screen grab to 100

* Fixed a crash when a APPLIBMT_ToFront message was sent to FastView SinglePicture

* Fixed a problem using "Open Drawer" in SinglePicture mode

* Fixed all requesters where a "Warning" icon was missing

* Modified reboot default at the end of installation. Now, "Reboot later" is defaulted to avoid unwanted reboot.

Thanks to Alan 'Pseudaxos' Kerjean for the suggestion

* Fixed delete shortcut key 'x' in SinglePicture mode

* Installer modified to ask for ROTATE_INPLACE option for SinglePicture use, default = YES.

* Recompiled with the latest libJPEG (9a), libPNG (1.6.12) and libTIFF (4.0.3)
Thanks to the recent ports of Michael 'MickJT' Trebilcock

* Fixed a bug when selecting pictures in SinglePicture mode for very huge drawer

In Utilities category :

-SysMon 4.4 :

* Fixed all requesters where a "Warning" icon was missing

* Added a stack cookie to fix potential DSI at startup

Thanks to 'Fabien' Jacobs for the bug report

-FlipPaper 1.8 :

* Added support of Internet http and ftp pictures.

FlipPaper uses Curl to grab the pictures from the network.

Use the little "Boing Ball" button (lower left) to add picture URL to the Backdrop list.
Thanks to Martin 'Mason' Merz for this AISS icon

This function can be useful to have a internet Webcam as Workbench backdrop (a list of compatible webcams can be found in LittleBrother package)



* FlipPaper and FlipPaper_Auto (background task) are registered into the Application Library

FlipPaper handles the following Application messages

APPLIBMT_ReloadPrefs
APPLIBMT_OpenPrefs
APPLIBMT_ToFront
APPLIBMT_Quit
APPLIBMT_ForceQuit
APPLIBMT_Hide
APPLIBMT_Unhide


FlipPaper_Auto handles the following Application messages

APPLIBMT_ReloadPrefs to refresh the background picture
APPLIBMT_OpenPrefs to refresh the background picture
APPLIBMT_Quit
APPLIBMT_ForceQuit

* FlipPaper_Auto can't be started twice

If a second instance of FlipPaper_Auto is started, the Workbench screen is blinked and a ask for refresh is sent to the active FlipPaper_Auto.
It can be useful to easily refresh the Backdrop.

(FlipPaper GUI can be started twice if the Unique option is disabled in Preferences).

* Added a check at startup to control that NList.mcc is at least at level 20.138

* Fixed the width of all the buttons

Thanks to Samir 'Samo79' Hawamdeh for the suggestion

It might be a user misunderstanding but when I click on one of the dockies (e.g. the gfx one), the popup shows ok, but I can't figure out how to get rid of it again, as the popup obscures the dockie "button".

NetDock doesn't play well on my X1000. If I add the main dockie for it it does nothing, apart from show my network card (RTL8139) name. If I then add the second dockie from the "icons_TommySammy" folder that does work (it adds a second dockie, I can then remove the broken first one).

By default, the info window is positioned to be below the docky.

Try to specify INFO_WINDOW_DISPOSITION = C
instead of INFO_WINDOW_DISPOSITION = BW.

The info window should be centered on the Workbench screen.
By double-clicking again on the docky, the info window is closed.

Thank you for the report, I will put "Centered" by default in the tooltype to avoid problem.

For NetDock, I just tried the AMISTore version, it works well for me, I see the 2 monitor picture. WHat do you see when you put NetDock in AmiDock ?

Ignore this sorry, I think I'm misunderstanding what this dock does - it just shows a picture with an activity light? I was looking for the one with data readouts (which is the TommySammy one).

@AndyGarton

Right, all my Dockies (except LittleBrother) have a MiniDock format and a standard format.

By default, MINIDOCK format is ON (MINIDOCK=ON tooltype) and look like that



If you want the other format, use MINIDOCK=OFF or comment with "( )" the MINIDOCK tooltype.



By default, the NetDock background is transparent, I specified by tooltype a black one for the picture.

Is it what you wanted to use ?

@zzd10h

Thanks for the information. Without you posting here that there is a new package i would not know and also which files are new from your package so i know what to install. And also good i saw this thread ;) All fine now and installed.

I did fire up amistore today but didnt see anything new. With os4 depot/aminet you can see recent files. In amistore i really dont know whats new and when.

Like manuel in Fawlty towers said... "i know nothing". Thats how i feel with opening amistore :)

Login and go to the downloads section of AmiStore, click the "loud hailer" icon next to products your interested in email updates about and you should get updates.

I don't know how detailed they are, ie I suspect subdetails of items in a multi package like zTools won't show up, but hopwfully a readme would be provided in the package once downloaded.

You are right Kicko, even with the little Notification icon selected, no notification about this update...
And therefore, I have to spam to inform
