Software News   Software News : Jack 4.0 (MUI) released
   posted by djrikki on 16-May-2013 21:43:09 (4969 reads)
At long last the wait is over, I am pleased to announce the release of Jack 4.0.

Jack is a multi-purpose commodity for AmigaOS, AROS and MorphOS.

Read more --->

The AmigaOS version can be downloaded from, versions for AROS and MorphOS will appear in the next few days.

If your eager to download straightaway please remember to check the 'Uplload' queue on OS4Depot first.

Jack 4.0 has been completely written from the ground-up, bye-bye to the custom interface, Jack now fully embraces MUI.

Main Features:

* Comprehensive AmigaOS App-Store piggy-backing onto the already brilliant Includes integrated Arexx Support for developers

* Donate easily to your favourite AmigaOS third-party developers

* Quick access to AmigaOS Preferences

* Screen snapshoter

* AmigaOS Knowledge Base

* 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...

* Quick Access to WordNet - Thesaurus

* Basic file-management, Make New Drawer, Delete, Rename and Add Comment

* Open your files in Helper Applications

* Integrated Weather Forecast for any location in the world

* In-built file-search

* Currency-Converter

* Quick Filer access, opens two instances in one simple click

* Access Popular Amiga websites quickly and easily from the Dashboard

Be sure to read the known bugs and limitations mentioned in the documentation.

Jack 4.0 fully takes advantage of MUI Royale 1.0, however a few limtiations have been identified in the documentation and Andreas of Hollywood fame is working hard to resolve them. When this is complete I can in turn update Jack itself.

I hope you enjoy the new release of Jack.
