Software News   Software News : Poseidon USB V3.2 Update for AmigaOS 3.x released
   posted by rhino on 20-Dec-2005 16:16:54 (2012 reads)
Two years have passed since the last Poseidon USB release. Now V3.2 is available for AmigaOS 3.x and MorphOS.

The archive can be downloaded from here*

*Note: The update is not free.

So, what's new? (The full, but probably still incomplete changelog is in the guide and over 200 lines long)



- Support for Online Registration, Update and Bug reporting.
- Wacom Tablet HID Support.
- HID Output Control Window: Automatically generated GUI for HID devices.
- New Classes for MIDI, Touchscreen, Palm PDAs, IrDA (stack not included) and Bluetooth (stack not included).
- Mass storage class reworked and extended (e.g. better fall back modes, improved partition detecting for automounting, and unmounting of partitions, better boot time adapting removable task).
- HID class can now be made boot time resident, no more need for bootmouse or bootkeyboard class.
- HID lowlevel.library extension for analogue pad information.
- PoPo: Annoying Poseidon Popups for events, such as connection, removal, low power and death events. With sound support.
- Power Management added. Warns if power drain is higher than supply.
- Dead device detection.
- Severe internal changes to class scan and enumeration procedure: Less (no?) potential deadlocks.
- Automatic configuration change notification and updating.
- Support for PipeStreams.
- Full support for USB 2.0.
- Updated list of vendors.
- Devices can now be renamed by user.
- Added additional visual feedback in Trident (traffic signs).
- Configuration management added to Trident.
- Lots of fixes and optimizations.

I wish people would stop wishfully asking when OS 4 ports will be available, it's getting tiresome everytime you read news about OS 3.x software to find a thread of, 'where's the OS 4 version?' posts.

Anyway, nice to see an update - poseidon is

@all

I think we better not wish Poseidon is ported on OS4 but rather wish Sirion will be improved in order to be on par with Poseidon (speaking of driver availability, not functionnality as this is almost the same on this regard).
I think the worst we can wish for OS4 is to have two different USB stack system which will undoubtedly end in another "religious" war between the supporters of each system...
But that's just my 2 cent...

Functionality on par with Poseidon? - I have extensively tested both and Poseidon is still way ahead. It also has a far better UI. However in balance, it has to say that OS4's USB support is still beta, Poseidon is not - it's a full release.

I've been using Poseidon since it came out, first with a Subway card in my A3000 and more recently on Amithlon with the ArakAttack drivers and certainly agree it is absolutely excellent. It's one of the things that enables me to keep using AmigaOS for most of my computing needs. I've just upgraded my keyfile to 3.2 and it works better than ever. Who would have guessed that a USB stack could be fun to use!

In my experience Poseidon gives the user much more control over the USB system than ANY other OS I've used (certainly Windows and MacOS X, can't say about Linux). So I wouldn't necessarily expect the OS 4 USB stack to ever come up to its level, and most users won't need it to either.

That said a nicer UI, more USB class support and more configurability for the classes it does support would definitely be appreciated in the final release!

Robert (who's now thinking about getting himself a Wacom tablet as a late Christmas present).
