Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Jack 3.1 - AmigaOS4, AROS, MorphOS and Classic
   posted by djrikki on 15-Apr-2012 22:59:48 (2858 reads)
Jack 3.1 is now available for immediate download for all Amiga-like operating systems. Non-AmigaOS 4 users should read the notes outlined below.

For the time-being Jack can only be downloaded from OS4Depot.net.

SO WHAT'S NEW? (click on Read More to find out)



* Comprehensive Download Manager in the App-Store
* Added support for AROS, Classic and MorphOS computers into the Community Statistics panel and elsewhere
* App-Store Donation Database: Download applications and then donate directly to the developer (SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!)
* Improved general caching within the AppStore and increased archive name recognition database
* Platform-indepency and removal of all (most) third-party tools and applications including Curl/Wget
* From now on all URLs are called via the OpenURL suite
* Watermarks fixed in single-image mode
* All fonts are now anti-aliased
* Many more numerous bug fixes and optimisations
* For full list of changes and bug fixes, read the .readme or the documentation included

AROS: (status: Release Candidate)

* Installation Problem: Will extract to the current directory and not to the chosen destination drawer, AROS gurus must fix this for me.
* Optical media is not picked up in the filemanager
* Mouse pointers have been temporarily disabled

Classic Amiga OS: (status: BETA/untested)

* Completely untested, assuming it even loads some features maybe broken or missing.
* Likely installation problem as AROS

MorphOS: (status: BETA/Untested)

* Completely untested, assuming it even loads some features maybe broken or missing. I do intend to get my hands on a MorphOS machine to bring up to the same level as enjoyed by AmigaOS4 users.

IN ALL CASES please subscribe to the Jack Beta Mailing List, send all your bug reports, feedback, suggestions etc... especially non-AmigaOS4 users.

jack_beta@freelists.org - ensure you write the word 'subscribe' (without quotes) in the subject of your email.

Thank you, I hope you continue to enjoy Jack for... everyone!

great job bringing Jack to all Amiga & Amiga inspired OS's

people can say what they want about Hollywood but it sure is nice having prgrams ported so easily between different systems

It is a Multi purpose utility, so better question is what it isn`t

Comprehensive AmigaOS App-Store
Quick access to AmigaOS Preferences
Screen snapshoter
Get the Most our of your Amiga. Jack now includes a plug-in for Assist by Daniel Hutchinson.
Fully-featured Image Editor, includes Batch-image processing
Speedy access to all your connected devices
Support for Push4Dock – quick access to your Documents, Images, Music and more…
JackTunes: Comprehensive music player for accessing your ITunes music collection. Beta version. Awaiting audio drivers for SAM 460 in order finish this extension.
Unique Slideshow mode for viewing your image directories
Handy Calculator, similar to Spotlight in Mac OS X, its there when you need it most
Thesaurus – Learn words in the English Language (requires WordNet).
Basic file-management, Make New Drawer, Delete, Rename and Add Comment
Open your files in Helper Applications
HTTP/HTTPS support for downloading files to a directory before Opening
Jack can be called entirely from the command line, in this mode it will act as a modern file requester that retains all the above features.

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

@all

Jack 3.1.1 now available in OS4Depot upload queue, addresses a few problems reported from users in addition to other general bug fixes.

* MorphOS: Runs in debug mode, please copypasta the result here if you manage to reach it in this release
* MorphOS: Fixes to installation icon.
* MorphOS: References to SYS: are now MOSSYS:

* Began adding connection detection around downloading of data across the
internet; due to this being a quick fix release this has yet to be implemented
into the App-Store. More to do here.
* Donation database broken due to error in decryption algorithm. Now working.
* Fixed error in opening file manager from the shell using arguments.
* File Manager: Fixed downloading of URLs that contained uppercase.
* App-Store: Fixed error with Recent Uploads and Bundles both appearing in Red
under AmigaOS4; seems to have cleared up double buffering error present in 3.1.
* Commodity Window: Added temporary warning requester to JackTunes in case the
user presses this icon by mistake.

@all

Jack 3.1.2 now available in OS4Depot upload queue, addresses a couple of problems reported from users.

* During a resync of the App-Store the 'cache' drawer was inadvertedly being
deleted rather than just it's contents. Resolves crash when selecting 'Recent
Uploads' after a resync during the same session.

* Added new window, the Commodity Help window. Click the Yellow bulb icon to
open it. Shows what each of the buttons does in the commodity window.
