Software News   Software News : New Cygnix programs for OS4 available
   posted by CygnusEd on 10-Oct-2006 16:39:56 (10553 reads)
On OS4-depot are four new packages for the X11 environment Cygnix available:

* Cinepaint 0.21.1 (image manipulation program)
* Gimp 1.2.5 (image manipulation program)
* vim 7.0 (text editor)
* Xfce 3.8.16 (desktop manager)

All these packages are alpha versions. This means, that some functions of the
programs are not working or some tools are missing.
The development is stopped for the moment, because I need time for some other
projects. I published these projects in the hope, that it could be usefull for
the community.
Please look at the READMEs for the missing features.

As I've said in the README, the development is stopped at the moment. This does
not mean cancelled, but you have to be patient

I just got to add that Gimp works fantastically well on the X11 screen. Nice and
fast. If only I could draw!

I think this is the first time I actually spend money on OS4 ... except when I bought my µA1 ofcours.

Keep up the good work

I cannot but join everybody else and take my hat off to you.
Unfortunately the magnitude of what you are achieving has already been fully celebrated, so I have no words left
Great job, man, really!

The amiga like window manage is called AmiWM, its availabe as source code from here , it would be nice if it could be updated a wee bit to look more like OS4 though. wish i could have a go myself but i dont have the required skills.

X11 has convinced me now that once new hardware is available i WILL invest in it, the software may not be native but atleast it can be used. It clearly is the best thing to happen to OS4 this year (untill the final release in december that is )

Really impressive work. What's next? Firefox on X11?

@CygnusEd,
@ all other application developers / port makers

Congratulations from the os4dev team, it is highly heartening to see "application level" people take on and deliver atop what we set ground for.

Keep up the good work !

I tried to install X11 a few months ago. Then I started to have stability problems that were related to it, so I de-installed.

I can't remember the version, but is the latest version "fixed"?
Can I install it safely?

All these wonderful tools available and I'd like to try them out... :)

This is big step in the right direction, even if I don’t like X windows, it’s where useful to have, when programs like Gimp is ported, X11 + POSIX complaint AmigaOS4 = not so hard to port programs to AmigaOS, lets hope more goodies comes.

I hope ports get updated whit native reaction GUI in the future, but that’s secondary to get them compiled and running as AmigaOS4 programs in the first place.
