Software News   Software News : AFA_OS 4.3
   posted by bernd_afa on 27-Nov-2008 11:57:47 (6715 reads)
Whats new:

The version of the exec.library is not set to 46 any more. Instead the revision numbers are set to >=99 to recognize it as a AfA_OS Library. This was necessary to avoid problems with programs (SFS) that uses some not so well known new functions of the optional exec.library V45.20 from OS3.9 BoingBag2. If that was not installed with AfA_OS a crash happened.


A Bug of the textfunction of graphics.library removed, that a negativ value of textlength can be passed, as with the orginal AmigaOS function. The old req.library (from 1993) passed a.e. -3, so a crash happened under AfA_OS.

buttongclass and imageclass complete replaced with AROS Code.

AmigaOS API functions RefreshGadgets, RemoveClass, NextObject, DisposeObject, AddClass, FreeClass, MakeClass and NewObjectA complete replaced with AROS Code.

Update Docs, with Requirements and Limitations section, a solution for support PNGIcons and skining under OS3.1 and some corrections.

Replaced the Prefs Icons with 32Bit Icons in OS4 format so that the transparent preview in AfA_Prefs works again.

Updated zune_lib.exe added to the archive in Directory "Optional" and the Installscript updated for a optional install.

Good find, i look in aminet and find newfilemaster from jul 2008.
I test and see, this use no menus, so the trick with the menubutton cant work.it can only work on programs that support menus.

filemaster overdraw too the screenbar but the good new for me is, it is not MUI specific and filemaster have source attached, this make more easy to see whats go wrong with some programs.

Great, thanks! Now it works perfectly...


There is another thing I've been wondering about...it's really a very minor cosmetic thing but...well, you could say that I'm a bit perfectionist... ...anyway, I made a small video to demonstrate the refresh issues with some of the window/screen gadgets.


PS. Is it possible to support these MUI custom gadgets with the skinning system?
