Enhancer Software Released On AMIStore
Cardiff, May 1st 2016

A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce that the new Enhancer Software has been released on AMIStore App Store for OS 4. The Enhancer Software is a collection of utilities, commodities, classes, datatypes and libraries with the aim of enhancing the AmigaOS experience. It is the result of about nine months worth of hard work by the AmigaDeveloper.com Team.

The Enhancer Software contains the debut pre-release version of Warp3D Nova and there will be free updates for Enhancer Software users as Nova gets updated over the coming months.

X-Dock is a new feature rich docking system. It makes it's public debut on the Enhancer Software.

MultiEdit is a new tabbed text editor included in the package with many other features.

Multiviewer, the datatype viewer gets an upgrade to version 2.2, adding new features such as image thumbnails and much more. It now uses the new Shared Image Class and InfoWindow Class.

Ringhio Notifications has had many internal updates over the last few months to bring it to version 53.53. It now features notification sound, colourwheel support, individual app configuration plus lots of bug fixes over the old version bundled in OS4.

TuneNet has been updated as a result of user feedback and requests. The User Interface now supports 4.1 FE features and our new classes such as InfoWindow Class and ProgressBar Gadget Class. The new version is exclusively included.

ClipViewer also makes it's debut. This is a new Clipboard manager which has integration with other applications in the Enhancer Software.

Exchanger is a new commodity and application manager which gives external control of running applications and commodities, including: showing or hiding the program GUI, shutting the program down, displaying the Workbench information requester for the particular program, enabling and disabling commodities.

The Enhancer Software package is available to purchase as two versions. A Standard edition containing the RadeonHD v1 driver and the CANDI Special Edition with four animated Workbench backgrounds, and a Plus Edition which includes the RadeonHD v2 driver with composite video support together with the full CANDI package.

Many of the applications on the Enhancer Software use the new gadgets and classes that have been written from the ground up to give extra functionality to the apps they serve. InfoWindow Class provides a better way of displaying Information and About windows and is utilised with most applications in the Enhancer Software. Similarly, the new Shared Image Class is used by MultiViewer and ClipViewer.

We are also pleased to have licenced Joerg Strohmayer's Amiga software for the Enhancer Software including new versions of SmartFileSystem, AmiDVD, PartitionWizard and DiskCache Library.

Congratulations to finally release it.

It was for sure a lot of work to manage the team and all the numerous elements of this package.

A question, if a user still own Radeon HD v2 or CANDI, do you have a special discounted price ?

Thank you

Well...
Congratulations for the big work!

But sorry...that piece of software costs almost twice than AmigaOS 4.1FE I wonder why Hyperion havent do that and included in OS4.x...

Sorry guys...I really like AEon work but buying Radeon drivers and all the stuffs done costs quite 3x the price of AmigaOS4.x...

I dont think that was the way to bring back AmigaOS unfortunately...

Plz AEon guys buy AmigaOS4 licenses and do the work and than sell a full AmigaOS4.x at 100/130 in a complete way!

Yes could there be a "lite version" of the Plus Edition?
I have bought CANDI and both the RadeonHD v1 / RadeonHD v2 -versions previously...

Further more, my graphics card is an "old" Radeon HD 4550 and does any of the programs
require Warp3D Nova? (Warp3D Nova doesn't support the ATI Radeon 4000 Series...)

None of the programs need Nova as the majority of apps are Workbench based.

If you have purchased RadeonHD v1 before, then the Standard edition is reduced in AMIStore at Checkout.

If you have purchased RadeonHD v2 before, then the Plus edition is reduced in AMIStore at Checkout.

@AmigaKit Great idea regards discounted price for people who have already bought components - would be good to make this clear in the news article before you get a thousand similar questions!

Very good news - looking forward to trying it all out. :)

I'd like to see another edition which doesn't have any of the Radeon HD stuff in it (the drivers; W3D Nova; etc)

Not everybody has or can even install a Radeon HD, and given the individual price of the Radeon HD v1 driver alone is only 15 cheaper than Enhancer, I'm thinking a non-Radeon HD Enhancer pack should be around 20.

If you need the drivers it's a bargain, if you don't then it's massively overpriced.

Hi Chris,

It is the other way around, the development costs for all the other apps, libraries and classes make the bulk of the cost. The RadeonHD driver is a small subset of it. Every purchase of the Enhancer lets us invest more money back into further software development.

When I click buy I get a message saying "This product is not eligible for upgrade pricing." Also when I add to the bag it appears to add the product but when I click on the bag icon Enhancer isn't there. This happens for both the standard and plus editions.

I also tested adding other products to the bag and that works fine.

Appreciate the effort, guys. Before I commit to purchase need to see if everything is sorted regarding discounts for purchases already made. I have purchased RadeonHD V2 driver and MultiViewer, for example. AmiStore does not show me any discount when I put either Enhancer version in the shopping basket. Says something about being ineligible for upgrade.

Also, do I understand that this includes Nova driver (and supporting RadenonHD driver?) and that if I buy this now I won't need to be paying more to have Nova up and running on my R9 270 card, once there is some supporting software? Just want to be clear about that.

Amiga developers need to feel like their efforts will pay off financially. That will encourage more development. We have lots of good hardware. We need software.
