Software News   Software News : Timberwolf Alpha 1 released
   posted by RuDeE on 9-Jun-2010 15:29:19 (16419 reads)
From Amigabounty.net:

Quote:

We have to apologize for the long absence. Workload, personal issues and other things slowed down development considerably.

However, we're finally able to make the first binary release of Timberwolf. This is going to be an Alpha version, meaning it will be prone to crashing and misbehavior, it will be slow, and not all functionality is implemented yet.

Future plans include an update to the latest baseline source code of Firefox (3.7 beta), an Amiga-specific theme, as well as a major rewrite of the rendering code. The current version of the rendering code (Did we mention it's an alpha release ?) has some conceptual problems that will lead to misrenderings, and massive overdraw (some webpages might be rendered 2 to 8 times, you may notice the window will turn black several times during page buildup).

Feedback is welcome; please point your browsers at http://amigans.net and visit the Timberwolf support forum.

Have fun with the first release.

OMG... Fantastic News...
1) We got Java (JAmiga) last week
2) We got Flash few months ago
3) Now we have FireFox (Timberwolf)

Anybody doing a port of Silverlight (Moonlight)??? Perhaps another bounty!
http://www.mono-project.com/Moonlight
A lot of people would need this for NetFlix and other websites.

---SPEED---
On a 733Mhz Amiga SAM Flex, the speed is about as fast as AmigaCygnix.
I can use AmigaWorld, and edited this message.

---BUGS----
1) Drop down lists have a bug where you have click and hold the mouse then it renders but the positioning of the items is off by about 100px. Using the scroll / arrow keys works better with the drop down lists.
2) Menu items are more usable from the keyboard then from the mouse.

---VERDICT---
We did it, or more accurately the developers did it...

Good news.
How is the performance on the lower end Sam boards anyways?
The PSU in my pc blew up a few days ago, so sadly had to steal the one i used for my Sam.

Impressive!

It works way over my expectations on my A1/800. As fast or faster than OWB I'd say. Starts slower though and eats tons of memory.

The redraw issue is painfully obvious at some sites but hardly noticeable at other. Had problems selecting stuff in drop-down boxes though since mouse/menues doesn't work very well.

If this is the start then the future could be anything!!!

Have been using the Alpha-Alpha version for a while. This Alpha version so much better. Well done the F. Brothers,

@Meet

Don't want to lower your enthusiasm but your statements are not quite true.

Quote:

1) We got Java (JAmiga) last week
2) We got Flash few months ago
3) Now we have FireFox (Timberwolf)


1) we do not have Java but a pre-pre-early-begining of a port
2) we still do not have a WORKING Flash solution (compared to Windows or OSX)
3) You are almost right, we have a working alpha version

I'd heard some horror stories about how slow this would run so I have been pleasantly surprised.
Especially as the Friedens have said this will be improved upon.

Running this on a SamEP 667

Many thanks to the brothers.

@tiredoflife
Indeed I've heard them too, but even at this alpha stage it is not the case can't wait for future updates!

P.S.
Wow, I've been able to use "my recent hystory" on Amazon, some how it never worked on OWB, I get that spinning circle well...spinning!(forever, it never loads and this from versions 3.16 to 3.28, the ones I used).

@balis

See posts elsewhere in the forum and not the new section.

1) We do have Flash - not the latest and greatest and it has its own bugs and runtime issues
2) We do have Java - not the latest and greatest and it has its own bugs and runtime issues

These early version are break-troughs for the Amiga. Later versions will be more stable and feature packed but not as interesting or evolutionary as the first Amiga native versions.
