Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Enhancer Software 2.2 Released
   posted by amigakit on 9-Aug-2022 16:30:20 (2543 reads)


9th August 2022
A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to celebrate six years of the Enhancer Software. by releasing version 2.2

The new update is available to all existing Version 2 users as a free download from the Updater tool. It is also available to purchase for new customers as a boxed CD from Amiga Kit, selected dealers and digitally from AMIStore App Store.
.

Version 2.2 is the cumulation of ten months hard work by the Amiga Developer Team adding new functionality and features to the previous version.

This release represents the most advanced and polished edition of the software. Thanks to user feedback and developer diligence, we have increased the software quality, features and functionality to even higher levels.

What is the Enhancer Software ?

The Enhancer Software adds to or replaces system components in OS4.1 to provide it with a lot more functionality: from essential 2D video drivers to a modern 3D graphics sub-system, more advanced utilities, tools, classes and gadgets. Over the last six years the package has become increasingly important for users.

Crucially the Enhancer Software code base is independent so can evolve and be released regularly with the Amiga Developer Team working steadfastly on improving the package. It is not held up or constrained by any hiatus in OS4.1 development.

What is new in release 2.2 ?

Looking to the future a major evolution of the Enhancer Software will be Release V54. Behind the scenes it has been in concurrent development with this release so several V54 advanced components have made their debut early by being included in release 2.2.

* Warp3D Nova V54 now replaces it's predecessor, V1.85. This major upgrade represents an extra years worth of development offering major new functionality, speed improvements and fixes. It is an essential requirement for many new 3D game ports with full shader support (such as Doom3). Support also added for the soon to be released NovaBridge.


* OpenGL ES Library has updated to Version 3.3 with many parts being rewritten and optimised. which is also mandatory for new 3D applications such as SCUMMVM, SDL2 and GL4ES.

* RadeonRX 2D video driver now updated with the major feature of GART support providing extra 3D performance. Many additional optimisations.

* Video Acceleration Library further upgraded

* AmiDVD has been fixed for current Kernel

* ListViewer Gadget now has Tree view support and many fixes and optimisations

* Archiver now uses our new ListViewer Tree nodes and animated tab feature

* MultiEdit and MultiViewer now support draggable project tabs provided by the new Tabbed Gadget

* Datatypes V54 system has been upgraded

* Other Utilities have also had updates:
Calendar, Clock, InfoWindow, TuneNet, X-Dock

* Commodities updates for InfoWB & Exchanger

* Preferences have had updates:
Datatypes Prefs, Notifications Prefs,
Power Prefs, Sound Prefs, Time Prefs.

* Commands have had several internal updates:
AddDatatypes, Assign, Copy, Dir, List, MakeDir, Version

* Translations updated: Polish, Danish, Italian, Spanish

Please click Read More for the full list of changes and screen shots

Special Thanks

The package has been the result of a small dedicated team who have committed great efforts to this body of work. A-EON would like to thank the developers, beta testers and translators for their significant contributions.

Thanks. Will try this out later tonight on my X5000. Any chance of detailed changelogs for the various components? Like, I see Xdock has been updated for example - but how? What's been fixed, what new features are there etc.?

@hUMUNGUs

Yes. also had errors.
I had to reformat my SYS partition after my first 2.2 release version install.
re installation after restoring a backup went ok.

May be a random issue as I am a beta tester and this happened
only once in about 12 various 2.2 installations .

I too wonder what the best graphics card is.. would be good to have an updated chart somewhere of the greatest choices for each current model.

Even something like:
Model Number Best Choice Tested Working choice(s)
X1000 I wish I knew Card that shipped with it from AmigaKit
X5000 ??? ??? ???

@amigakit

I have a question about AmiStore.

Can I use my MasterCard to purchase software on AmiStore?

In the past, I purchased software directly from the AmigaKit website.

After some help from AmigaKit, I was able to download the digital version of Enhancer Software release 2.2 from AmiStore on August 21.

Updated AmiDVD works fine. I backed up my AmigaOS4 partition to CD-R.

Thanks,
redfox
