News   Amiga Future is looking again for reinforcements
  News posted by AndreasM on 9-Jun-2024 14:16:49 (596 reads)
Seeing as our printed edition of Amiga Future has now been published for over 25 years, we are at a point when we need to massively increase our editorial team for the magazine and also the home pages for our website.
The idea behind this is to relieve the workload on more of our entire team, to better distribute the load amongst all our editorial staff, and in so doing reduce the stress and workload on everyone involved, while at the same time further increasing the magazine's overall quality.

It is all in the hope that the next 25 years will be a little easier for everyone in the editorial team, and even better for our readers. :)

software Classic   Hollywood goes LaTeX: hTeX 1.0 released
  software Classic posted by softwarefailure on 2-Jun-2024 14:24:39 (553 reads)

Airsoft Softwair, the unstoppable coding machine, is back on your screen with a massive new Hollywood plugin release: hTeX. hTeX allows you to experience the wonderful world of LaTeX as it makes it possible to use the LaTeX markup language from Hollywood. This makes it possible to easily display mathematical formulas in your Hollywood scripts and Hollywood Designer projects. On top of that, you can also use more advanced LaTeX features like tables, boxes, and finetuned formatting. Finally, hTeX also allows you to export LaTeX formatted text as PDF documents, SVG images, and PNG images.

Using hTeX is very simple and convenient because the plugin directly interfaces with Hollywood's text library so you don't need to learn any new functions but you can just use the functions from Hollywood's text library. As soon as the hTeX plugin is installed, all functions from Hollywood's text library will automatically be able to handle text formatted in LaTeX. hTeX will make the text available to Hollywood as full vector text which means that it can be infinitely scaled, rotated, and transformed without any loss of quality.

Of course hTeX also supports our brand-new Hollywood Designer 7 which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. So after you've installed the hTeX plugin, Hollywood Designer 7 will automatically become a state-of-the-art editor for LaTeX, just take a look at what is possible when using hTeX together with Hollywood Designer 7:

The hTeX distribution comes with several examples as well as a comprehensive documentation to get you started quickly. And the best of all: hTeX is provided free of charge. Thus, please consider buying Hollywood to show your support for our massive development efforts. Note that Hollywood 10 or Hollywood Designer 7 are strictly required by hTeX.

The plugin is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Linux, macOS and Windows are provided.

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

I am glad to announce the availability of the the ARESONE SL (2024)
Enjoy 24 month warranty and a buy buck cycle offering.
The machine is compatible to native AROS Distributions and you can ask us to install any of the available options.

"buy back cycle" means that if we introduce an improved model, you will get an offer for buying back your old model. Trade in basically.

The Systems comes with a Geforce 8400GS 256MB GPU which features 3D acceleration under AROS.

A part of the revenue will be spent on Bounties or additional Hardware Drivers
