software OS4   software OS4 : Second beta release of Timberwolf
   posted by zerohero on 28-Mar-2012 13:59:01 (5327 reads)
Taken from AmigaBounty.Net:

The second public beta release is currently uploading to os4depot.net

This new version improves some features of the first beta, and fixes some of the bugs. In essence, the main improvements are as follows:

- Splash screen when starting up (to show something is happening)
- Crash fixes. For example, clicking the zip box no longer crashes
- Right-click popup menus work now
- Downloads work now
- Timberwolf now uses a native ASL file requester instead of the alien file picker


As usual, feedback welcome. We'll be establishing a bugtracker soon.

ASL! We are one step closer to the Amiga Style Guide feel! Yes ASL does have its detractors, but it is definitely a native AmigaOS tool rather than a ported requester.

if you try to download a file to ram: it shows a nice DSI not recoverable or if you try to download to JXF it says isn't possible try another place

Great to see this update, and some "Amiga-ising" of the browser. Indeed, ASL has room for improvement, but by using it, Timberwolf will automatically take advantage of an upgraded ASL system without any changes.

Personally I think ASL requesters are great

@Daedalus

Having used OSX requesters and Windows 3.1-XP3 requesters, I also think ASL is great

@All

Just downloaded and installed, seems a bit quicker but when I select 'Bookmarks' and click on a link, nothing happens, anyone else experience the same?

First post from the new Timberwolf! :D
Thanx for the quick update!

It feels a lot more useable now!

Edit: Could you please implement shift+backspace + shift+del to delete text strings in the url dialog etc? =)
When i am in front of an amiga i do that all the time! Can't help it. ;)

Edit: Found a bug that you probably know about already, but the first downloaded file doesn't show up in the download manager.
Also, downloading to ram disk: doesn't work... probably due the space in "ram disk:"?

I already like timberwolf better than OWB.
OWB stalls when i enter a typo in the url field, Timberwolf doesn't, and yes, i do those typos a lot. :D

On Linux side path are something like C:/my download/.
On AmigaOS, paths are like Ram Disk: or DH1:. They don't have the "/ "after the ":".

With Timberwolf, you can't for the moment, download a file and save it at the root of the destination disk. But if you choose a drawer it will work!

Hmmm... It looks like the instructions in the readme are slightly wrong... The fontconfig cache setup instructions say to execute the line

fc-cache -c -f

Whereas it should be

fc-cache -r -f

as it is in the readme from the first beta version. Only a small thing, and probably won't affect anyone if they've already run the command for the first beta version...

Do you mean Alt+backspace, etc? The Amiga standard is Ctrl- for characters, Alt- for words and Shift- to start or end of the line or page.

Yeah, me too - I'd list it as another one of those small reasons that I prefer working on an Amiga, up there with stay-in-front windows and multiple screens. It makes a lot of sense to me, shift+left goes to the start of the line, shift+right goes to the end. Shift+backspace deletes to the start of the line, shift+delete deletes to the end and so on...

On a parallel universe, maybe. On ours, linux paths are something like

/home/user
/bin
/mnt/device/

and there is NO initial volume descriptor with double dots anywhere. Maybe you've been fooled by MS/DOS-Windows ones, which are in the form

volume letter:\path\

Getting there.

It would still be nice to cut and paste URLs which it seems not possible to do at the moment.

RA C, RA X, and RA V are standard shortcuts that expected in all Amiga applications.

That's only because OWB for OS4 was built with a non threaded CURL. Besides this stalling would only occur in particular cases, too, unless your DNS server is really weird. :)
