Very nice. I like the crisp information bar at the top. Excellent to have such a clear view of all
system resouces available at all times.

I also really like this colour scheme (yes, yes, I know it's configurable!). A worthy candidate for
the standard look I'd say -- very soothing to the eye. I wonder if a new set of icons will arrive in
time for the final release though?

I'd like that they integrated powericons with it...

being able to use 24bit png icons is only a small effort and will make it look much better

Nice.

What exactly does the "Virtual: 1.601/1.610MB" Mean?

Oh, and how come the Workbench 4.0 icon is covered in lepoard skin? Some sort of 70's theme?

Otherwise good work so far guys!

No, PowerIcons can not be used with the OS4 workbench.

Very nice pictures indeed! I always try to click to the buttons, but nothing happens

Is the "Layershape test" window some sort of transparency thing? At first I thought it looked
like a window that hadn't yet completed loading ...

@TheJackal

I suppose the "lVirtual: 1.601/1.610MB" reflect the Virtual memory avalable?
If I recall correctly, this is set aside on a separate partition.

@TheJackal

Well it seems, that the systems uses 9MB out of over 1GB of available virtual memory! Virtual memory! Only a feature for other OSes, but a huge step forward for the AmigaOS

> leopard icon
Maybe they have "borrowed" it from MacOS X Jaguar...

I take it the default look is the purple background with blue and grey window bars?

You can actually decide what is going into the title bar with the workbench prefs program. It has a very wide variety of things it can show, in fact you can't even put everything there because you will run out of space

I am not sure if these are default colors, I'm not up to date with it

Yes, a new icon set will arrive. Mason is very busy doing that, and I've only seen glimpses of it, too

These icons are "only" 256 colors, but the difference is hardly noticable. There won't be any PNG support per default in OS 4.0, but we're hoping that PowerIcons will be ported

Like SlimJim said, it'S the amount of used and free virtual memory.

That was an attempt to see how PNG icons look when they're converted to 256 colors. You won't notice much difference, really.

Yes, it's a masked layer. Layers now allows you to cut out areas/holes from layers, or have shaped layers. You could have, for example, a round clock.

Because icons are small they contain very few pixels, the number of colours they can display is limited by the number of pixels they contain, so 256 colours is plenty, assuming its not a fixed palette, but unique to each icon.

First, I would like say thanks to Hyperion, looks great!

I have a couple questions though. Do you have to use virtual memory?
Also, are you required to have a swap drive? And if so, why?


Thanks.

Cool! Seems like you guys have been busy. I guess VM will be handy for anyone doing video/sound editing on large files.

Yup, can't see any difference. And to be fair with each icon been able to have it's own palette you shouldn't. Only benifit *I* can think of with 24/32bit icons is the blitting with 24/32 bit displays. But that ain't much.

Keep up the good work, ... btw: do they let you out to see daylight?
