software Classic   Iconic 1.0 released and special offer
  software Classic posted by softwarefailure on 23-Jan-2022 13:38:36 (94 reads)

Code business is back. In 2022 Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, celebrate the 20th anniversary of Hollywood, the cross-platform multimedia application layer. To kick off the celebrations we are proud to present a brand-new plugin for Hollywood: Iconic. Iconic is the ultimate icon loader and saver plugin for Hollywood. It will make all your icon dreams come true because it can load and save icons in pretty much all of the most common icon formats. The following formats are currently supported:

- AmigaOS 1.x style icons
- AmigaOS 2.x/3.x style icons
- AmigaOS 3.5/3.9 icons (aka GlowIcons)
- AmigaOS 4.x icons
- macOS icons (*.icns format)
- MagicWB icons
- MorphOS/PowerIcons icons (PNG)
- NewIcons
- Windows icons (*.ico format)

Of course, Iconic also supports loading and saving of the metadata found in the Amiga icon formats like tooltypes, icon position, drawer view mode, icon type and so on. Thanks to Hollywood 9's new support for palette images it is also possible to load the icon palette, set a transparent pen and access the raw palette pens used in the icon image data. Of course, Iconic doesn't only support palette-based icon images but also icons that contain true colour images with alpha channel. Several of the icon formats listed above also support palette and true colour images within the same icon file and several different icon sizes within the same icon file. All of this is supported by Iconic as well!

This is why Iconic is the ultimate icon plugin for Hollywood and a must-have for every Hollywood user. The plugin is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, MorphOS, WarpOS, AROS (x86), Linux (arm, ppc, x86, x64), macOS (ppc, x86, x64), Windows (x86, x64), Android and iOS are provided. Note that Hollywood 9 is strictly required by Iconic.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Hollywood we also offer a special 20 euros discount on the full version of Hollywood for a limited time only. This is the perfect chance for all people who don't own Hollywood yet to grab their own copy and to explore the wonderful world of Hollywood and be fascinated by the gigantic functionality of this unique piece of software and all of the plugins that come with it! To order your own copy, just click here.

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

software OS4   Blast from the past: a new version of Odyssey browser for AmigaOS4
  software OS4 posted by kas1e on 2-Jan-2022 21:30:32 (2123 reads)
Odyssey 1.23 rev.5 for AmigaOS4

About 5 years passed since the last os4depot release of the AmigaOS4 port of Odyssey browser originally written for MorphOS.

For that time there were few spikes of additional work done on port and beta-versions were released on for those who were brave enough.

But now (at last) after some small updates done lately there is a normal os4depot release so everyone can use the new version.
And if by some luck there will be some newbies they will have the latest version of what we can give at the moment.

Grab it from the os4depot while it is hot!

News   The Amiga Future magazine - Issue 154 preview is now available to view online
  News posted by AndreasM on 16-Dec-2021 9:53:42 (283 reads)
This is the full colour preview and excerpts of the Amiga Future magazine, issue 154 (January/February 2022) that can now be viewed online on the Amiga Future website.
ATTENTION: We will try to send the issue in the first week of January again this year. I.e. the booklets are published over the turn of the year
already packed. So please order the issue as early as possible or remember to pay your subscription bills.

Some of the interesting articles in this issue are:

Interview Thomas Römer
Review Matze 68030-TK2
Review Ad Cosmos Ex Terra

Of course there's so MUCH more actually in the magazine.

Needless to say you often get other versions of software, often what was commercially available, as well as some of the latest try-outs or freely released software applications and games for, hopefully, all of the Amiga type Operating systems, so that's Amiga 'Classic', OS4, MorphOS, and AROS, including some PD software for these systems, all on the Reader's cover CD.

A detailed description of this issues contents and excerpts can be found at:

The Amiga Future magazine is available as an English and German printed magazine - every issue is available in FULL COLOUR - directly available from the magazine editorial office and also from various other Amiga dealers.


We ask all Amiga Future subscribers to check whether we have the current postal address and email address of you.
The Amiga Future will be packed and shipped a few days before the release date. We therefore need a change of address as soon as possible.
Important: Requests for forwarding normally do not work with magazines!

We also ask you to check whether any subscription bills have already been paid. Unfortunately, many subscription bills are currently still unpaid.
