software AROS   software AROS : Icaros 1.4 and AspireOS 1.7 released! Odyssey Web Browser 1.16 Inside!
   posted by deadwood on 9-Mar-2012 5:51:46 (6234 reads)
We are happy to announce immediate availability of new major versions of two AROS distributions! Icaros 1.4 and AspireOS 1.7 are both packed with fixes and improvements to AROS that took place in recent months as well as new and updated applications. Both distributions also contain a gift from us, the developers and maintainers, to you, the community - Odyssey Web Browser. Freshly ported from latest MorphOS version!

About Odyssey Web Browser 1.16

Odyssey, developed by Fabien Coeurjoly, is the most advance browser for Amiga-like OSes. From today it's latest version, 1.16, is also available for AROS as part of Icaros 1.4 and AspireOS 1.7. Please join us in celebrating reaching another milestone in AROS journey! You can see Odyssey in action in the following videos: Icaros 1.4, AspireOS 1.7

The version we place in your hands is the first public release and we are aware that not all of the features present in the original are available in this version. We are however hard at work at making improvements to Zune to make the Odyssey even a better experience! You can support this effort by donating to the bounty. This first version is also an exclusive bundle (*) with Icaros 1.4 and AspireOS 1.7 - be sure to get one those distributions to enjoy the best browsing experience on AROS to date!

About Icaros 1.4

Icaros Desktop 1.4 is the new "point release" of the most known AROS distribution. This new version includes many changes and enhancements, giving users a better experience and amazing tools like Odyssey Web Browser, Audio Evolution 4, Frying Pan and many others. Coders will find a complete development environment with tools, libraries and languages, such as the latest versions of PortablE, fpc and so on. Icaros Desktop Live! also provides games and utilities for your every days fun, bringing the richest amiga-like desktop environment available on commodity hardware. Classic Amiga addicts will also enjoy playing their favorite games on ADF files without the need of original Kickstart files from Commodore, while other emulators included in the distribution allow access to software written for most platforms of the past.

Icaros 1.4 can be downloaded from http://www.icarosdesktop.org

About AspireOS 1.7

This AROS Distribution is very basic. The included software are well tested. AspireOS tries to be as close to the original Amiga OS as possible. To learn more about AspireOS and to download the latest release go to www.aspireos.com

(*) - Because of the changes to the overall system that have been made to ensure Odyssey works well, please do not try and extract from the distributions unless you fully understand what is needed and also understand you may be wrong. We want all users to enjoy this great new browser and not have their experience ruined by having the wrong version of support files installed.

That's great stuff guys, well done! Now, I need to find out what happened my AROS install after the last update to break it. (more to do with the Ubuntu install than AROS though I suspect...)

At last AROS have real browser !

Seeing how fast it works on aspireone, seeing how fast and responsive google docs works, and how fast html5 tests works because of x86 cpu power, i am 100% sure that aros now can be used a lot more in compare with previous version of owb which aros have.

Through, on vids also found that starting a bit not fast : it takes about 7 seconds for start on nikos's video (while even on peg2/1ghz it take only 3-4 seconds) and zune theme a bit not so eye candy. (But sure zune will reach mui4 level soon or later)

Can't test for now, but have a couple of questions:

1. what about plugins ? did they works currently ? (that sfwdec one)
2. is threader-curl is used, or blocked one ?
3. did those classes from Thore are used by owb already ? (i mean process and aboutbox reimplementatin)
4. what about tabs ? custom implementation as on os4, or changes in the zune was done in that terms ?
5. what about opensource inbuild media player bounty, so it can be used for aros/aos4 ?

Will donate a bit again to the bounty. Its always glad to see AROS progress, soon we all can swih to it :)

@All, thanks for kind words:

Answering kas1e:

>1. what about plugins ? did they works currently ? (that sfwdec one)

No, besides I don't have sources for sfwdec plugin

>2. is threader-curl is used, or blocked one ?

Blocked

>3. did those classes from Thore are used by owb already ? (i mean process and aboutbox reimplementatin)

Yes

>4. what about tabs ? custom implementation as on os4, or changes in the zune was done in that terms ?

Zune is extended. Title class implemented.

>5. what about opensource inbuild media player bounty, so it can be used for aros/aos4 ?

Sounds like a good idea!

So, no update but a fresh install?

Another thing that interests me is running the distro native... Currently I have a hosted version on my Acer Aspire WLMi 5024. An old model which always caused problems on systems other than Windows (an old Linux live DVD never got to console, the latest won`t recognize KB/Pad/WiFi etc...)
Is there any chance to get it run AROS only (Aspire OS is released/optimized for Acer computers, but mine is very old...)?!

Cass:

There will be update for AspireOS 1.6 users. It will be for download later today.

There is always a chance to run native. Could you try to boot AspireOS with it ?

If AspireOS boots, you could always get external usb network card, or change the internal wifi chip. That would require you to open the computer, but with right tools it is very possible.

Nope. Icaros 1.4 file structure is too much different from 1.3.x one, so upgrading would have messed up everything. I eliminated all unnecessary, excessive drawer nesting (except where functional for applications to run correctly), replaced drawers of all command line utilities spread everywhere into a single extras:C directory, moved al companion files (docs, sources, and so) into the single Extras:Documentation directory, moved hw accelerated games to a proper drawer and so on. I even reduced all those AROS boot options to just three in GRUB menu. I felt the need to do all these things for many months, and this was the right time IMHO. This should help me making next Icaros 1.x versions easier to update without a global reinstallation.

@Fab

Thanks for making the sources available. Zune was actually a nice surprise - it did not require that much improvements ;)

@Cass

Is this it?

If so, my best guess on what works is this:

Working: ATA, USB, graphics (VESA), Ethernet
Not working: Sound, wireless

AspireOS is optimised for certain Acer netbooks, not for Acer machines in general.
