The "Audio" link seems a bit buggy, if you click on it you will be redirected to an (blank for now) "Office" section, but if you click again on it you will arrive to the correct Audio section

Also i got a crash in the new tutorial section --> Wazp3D

Same behaviours than Samo79.

Except that, it's a really good work to have gathered all these tips, thank you.

Would be nice to have hyperlink to download directly softwares (as you still do for video) .

Well done

Is the bug regarding AmiUpdate fixed? No matter how many times I run AmiUpdate, it will claim that there is an update for Assist.

Thanks will take a look at these. Looks as though there's an image missing from the package.

Thanks! Focus for now is adding as more content, in particular tutorials.

For the software hyperlinks, take you mean a link to the web download/readme page? Currently the direct download links can be copied to clipboard by right clicking the download button.

@Androxyn

Should be fine now, I updated myself via AmiUpdate and only flagged once.

I think in the past there was an issue with a time lag between me updating the AmiUpdate record and the new archive moving out of OS4Depot's upload queue, i.e. AmiUpdate looking for say 01.01.2013 while the actual version being downloaded was an earlier date, because update was still in the uploads queue.

@Paladine

Thanks, good to hear!

@sicky

Sorry about this, bug is fixed now and an update will be out in the next day or two.

Should be noted that for now there are no tutorials apart from in System & Workbench so all themes apart from should appear as a blank page. Some more are in the works/planned and will follow in future updates.

Four of the existing tutorials were contributions (thanks joeled!). If anyone wants to contribute a tutorial you can use this form (also for A-Z articles).

AmiUpdate notice me about a new version of Assist (remote 1.1 16/05/2013) but it seems that the downloaded package is still 1.0 version.

AmiUpdate ask me again to download Assist (and bugs seems not fixed)

Yes it is version 1.01 (16.05.2013), but I am experiencing the same as before as previously stated!

I have a SAM460 running AOS 4.1.6 (latest version).

How can it be this problem was fixed for others and not me?......... very strange!

When I click on Internet & Networking, Office, Graphics & Paint, Audio or Video the title comes up on the left hand side but the window to the right is blank in all cases!

But when I click on System & Workbench I get all the options displayed correctly.

Sorry I misunderstood, thought you were still getting the wrong titles.

What you have described is the correct behaviour for now as there are no tutorials yet in those sections to show, only the 5 in 'System & Workbench'. Tutorials for the other themes are being worked on and will be added in future updates.
