Software News   Software News : New Amiblitz (2.42) released
   posted by _Steve_ on 6-Sep-2004 18:55:00 (2739 reads)
An improved AmiBlitz2 distribution is now available for download. Because of the large number of changes made, and their increased size, an update archive for installing over an earlier distribution doesn't make sense anymore. Update archives will however be available with the next version.

Unfortunately, many things were missing in the last distribution. Thanks to Marco Möring aka Blackbird without whom the bugs and incompleteness of that distribution would probably never have been noticed. Next to Marco my thanks go to his wife Margit Möring. Together we three translated further guides into German. Thanks go of course to Bernd Rösch and Thilo Köhler who worked without a break on the future of AmiBlitz2.


Changes:
  • Much improved install/deinstall scripts.
  • After the installation are all settings immediately available.
  • After the deinstallation is the archive in its original condition and can be installed again in the particular version.
  • New Ped.prefs for the NEWCOLORMODE. Important: works only in screenmodes with 8/16 colours.
  • More German translation of AcidGuides.
  • Two versions of all (English/German).
  • Further includes by Thilo Köhler.
  • New Usermacro.guide.
  • Many errors removed.
  • Contains now many missing components, e.g. MUI2.res.


Download AmiBlitz 2.42 (5.8MB LHA - English/German)

For more information, visit the official Website. (German Language only atm - Translation tools needed for other languages)

@afxgroup

As far as I know it will never produce PPC code only 68k code. So no OS4 native version. Maybe they changed their opinion.

What are the main differences between WOS PPC assembly code and OS4 assembly code?

Writing a version of BlitzBasic for PPC is like wring a new basic language,
BlitzBasic is where 68k optimized, any way a BlitzBasic program running under a JIT emulator will blow your mind.

I tried compiling the RTG examples on OS4 but it gave some strange errors..... basically it wouldnt work. Also, the manuals for each topic that are online are not yet complete..... so if I was going to start playing with it I'd need to get a second hand copy of blitz from somewhere just to get a full set of manuals for all the commands etc.

Theres a language called PureBasic which is still in development .. I'm looking into it. It's multiplatform too. apparently you can compile PureBasic programs unchanged on Windows and Amiga, etc. It's similar to Blitz as well apparently. (I keep saying apparently because this is just what I've read..)
