software AROS   software AROS : Icaros Desktop 1.3.3 patch 03 released!
   posted by paolone on 17-Jan-2012 9:14:14 (1926 reads)
Patch 02 for Icaros Desktop introduced many enhancements and bug-fixes to Wanderer and other AROS components. But the new patch 03 makes things even better. The italian locale is back and iconification works better. Patch 03 completely replaces the former one, including all its bugfixes. Users that updated to patch 02 should install 03 as well, while people who never updated Icaros Desktop 1.3.3 should install patch 01 and 03.

This patch includes:

- everything that was already part of Patch 02
- fix for commodities like FKey: they don't appear iconified on the desktop anymore
- fix for italian translation: it will now be re-enabled in Wanderer
- added iconify button to Zune windows title bar (must be enabled by user)
- fix for ICE, Icaros Classic and Icaros Blue themes to support iconify button

For a complete list of known issues, please look at http://www.icarosdesktop.org/

Thanks as always for the update.

Its good to see another update for Icaros as the Iconify feature feels like another big leap forward in usability/functionality even if it is still a little buggy and unstable.

I am normally against any update that decreases stability but I am glad that you went with including the snapshoting of icons and iconify features in a patch as soon as possible as to me they make AROS feel more Amiga like

@Dwiloc

Many useful and important features had been added during the "papercuts initiative" in the last 3 months. As I earlier said (maybe elsewhere), these changes creates a "pre-" and "post-" prospective for AROS, so it was mandatory - IMHO - for Icaros Desktop to integrate them as soon as possible.

About iconification: like most of you, I would have been very happy if it worked flawlessly from day 1, however we are talking about a feature that must interact with applications, and in the past applications "could" use iconification, but lack of support has always forbidden that. And testing as well. This means that some programs may need some fix to work properly, not counting the fact that also AROS support for iconification must be still completed. I'd had forwarded this feature for the next Icaros release, but I guess people would like to play with it ASAP, and the more reports come, the faster it will be fixed.

Patching Icaros this way allows me to give users all these candies at once, and also to continue devloping the next Icaros more quietly.

@paolone

I'm glad you did. You need a certain amount of engagement with the project to read about the patches, install them and then go to Zune Prefs and hit the "I" button. So I'm sure users will understand the warnings.

Personally, I just tried out a bunch of applications and made a mental note of which crashed with Iconification. Things like NoWinEd and OWB work, so it's already useful.

Aros just keeps moving forward relentlessly, no stopping this party.

Can you please provide this list of applications? So far I know Wookiechat is not able to de-iconify.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
