Software News   Software News : Prerelease 2 of X-Window for OS4 (Cygnix)
   posted by CygnusEd on 9-Aug-2006 21:08:01 (1938 reads)
On OS4-Depot you can download the second prerelease of the X-Window environment for AmigaOS 4.

Read more for details...


Download here:
x11.tgz (47 MB)
x11-addon.tgz (24 MB)


This are the most important changes:

* Contains a new bugfixed version of the native x-server. Additionally with a
new server called "Xnest" you can open a nested x-server window on the x-
server screen.

* Everything was recompiled, reorganized and a lot of bugs were fixed. This was
necessary for the SDK, which will be published soon.

* Some programs from the old package are now part of a new addon package. This
package also contains some new software:

- Xpaint: A simple drawing program.
- Xmorph: Morph and mix your pictures.
- wxLife: A implementation of the "Game of life".
- Xbomber: A bomber blaster clone.
- ...

Thanks for the update. I'll have to try this when I have time.

Did anyone notice that there are currently 16 files in the recent uploads list on OS4depot? There's quite a bit to try out.

Hans

Good stuff, thanks!

A couple of minor things:
I had to edit the script to make it into 1280x1024x32, otherwise I had something like 'quad-vision', probably because I don't have the standard 1024x768x16 screenmode.

I end up with a file called GG-datestamp in ram: after every reboot.

Other than that, seems to work!
