A new version of AxRuntime is now available! AxRuntime lets developers compile their Amiga API-based applications as Linux programs.
The highlights of release v41.2 are:
1) AROS-Shell, an AmigaDOS-compatible Shell, is now available for you as a native Linux program. You can write DOS scripts and use shell commands to interact with Linux filesystem. 2) AxRuntime becomes a bridge between AROS x86_64 and Linux by allowing running native AROS programs as standalone Linux programs. In this function AxRuntime is similar to Wine. Wine allows running Windows programs on Linux, AxRuntime allows running AROS programs on Linux.
This release comes with 4 applications: AROS-Shell, MPlayer, WookieChat and Final Writer 7 (demo). Additionally AROS x86_64 applications like MUIbase can also be used!
Don't know about other window managers but in KDE Plasma in window behaviour settings you can add "window rules" to hide window decoration (titlebar, border frame) for certain windows/programs. You can still move/resize/bring to front such windows with alt + mouse buttons.
Looks kinda ugly with double decoration.

This won't install on Linux Mint 19.3 because of the dependency on libc6 2.29. (LM 19.3 uses 2.27-3ubuntu1.5.) Is there something in AxRuntime that requires libc6 2.29? If not, I can try a forced install.
