software OS4   software OS4 : New Personal Paint 7.3a Available Now
   posted by amigakit on 8-Jan-2015 20:09:47 (6906 reads)
A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce a new version of Personal Paint for both AmigaOS 4.1 and AmigaOS 3. The new version is free of charge upgrade for existing 7.3 customers now on AMIStore Amiga App Store and the AmigaOS 3 version is available directly from the A-EON Secure Download website for registered customers.

If you do not yet own PPaint, you can purchase this new version by either visiting the official website (www.ppaint.com) or on the AMIStore App Store.

Personal Paint for the Amiga has recently been purchased by A-EON Technology and is being actively developed by Andy Broad for A-EON. In keeping with our commitment to providing new quality software for the AmigaONE X1000, AmigaOS 4.1 compatible and Classic Amiga computers, expect further upgrades and enhancements to PPaint during 2015.

For some reason denying the existence of other Amiga OS4 capable machines that their software can run on is very disturbing to me.

PPaint is developed by A-EON now so they're going to promote their own hardware in their press releases. Not mentioning other compatible hardware in the press release is hardly denying said hardware's existence.

@Rob

While I'm agreeing with A-Eon, but, i really don't see a "compatible with AOS4.1" or requirements "needs AOS4.1 compatible computer"
Or something like that.


Edit: ah.. didn't read the whole thing. Sorry.
Forget my post.

Btw.. i Haven't bought it yet, but thats on my shopping list.

Thank you!

PPaint Changelog:

7.3 Release:

7.3a:
2014-11-30: Andy Broad

PPFM_Mem.c
libs/#?/mem.c:
Fix 68k only memguard hits die to incorrect size on releasing memory.
NB: If the code is taget to 3.x and above in the longer term
this custom code can be replaced with AllocVec() calls.

PPFM_FileIO.c:
No longer saves a corrupt alternate image when saving thumbnail
icons.

2014-12-02: Andy Broad

PPaint/PP_Prefs.c:
Add ASL Screen Mode Requester to allow user to choose
bestmode on first startup. If mode in Startup_1 is
0xFFFFFFFF the Workbench mode will be tried first then
if not supported by PPaint an ASL requester will open and offer
suitable modes.


2014-12-03: Andy Broad

PPaint/PP_Prefs.c:
The PRINTSYS settings are now clamped to min / max legal values
rather than throwing an error, so that saving preferences with
no valid printer setup, doesn't create an unloadable Startup_*.set

Change default setting in startup mode requester to 256 colours.

PPaint/PP_Menu.c:
Autmatically save both environments on first exit if the mode
requester was accepted.

2014-12-05: Andy Broad

Make68kMake.rexx
Add -fomit-frame-pointer to CFLAGS
Fixed crash in editing stencil due to register a5 being clobbered.

2014-12-13: Andy Broad

libs/req/req_messages.c
A test for the new true screen mode caused TOGGLE objects to be
highlighted (inverse image) on both mouse down and mouse up,
giving the appearance that they weren't toggling when on
a non truescreen mode. Fixed.

2014-12-14: Andy Broad

PPFM_GfxFill.c:
The TmpRas buffer was allocated via the custom CreateBitmap function
this worked on AGA/ECS but and AmigaOS4 but when run on other RTG
systems, the buffer was of an incorrect memory type. Now allocated via
AllocateRaster when 'SafeDisplay' is set. Fixes freehand and polygon
fill tools on RTG systems.

Downloaded and installed.

But..
1) Everytime I double click PPaint's icon it still pops an ASL screenmode requester. How to avoid that?
2)personal_req.library is almost like its .debug in size. Not stripped? And if it has been updated why doesn't the $VER gets bumped?

TIA

It saves the settings on first exit. So you must quit the program. This prevents you accidentally choosing a dud mode and then rebooting because your monitors is out of sync or something, then not being able to start PPaint ever again

Or ofcourse you can explicitly save the settings once started if you are happy with them, you will need to save both environments in that case.

Version isn't bumped because no significant chnage was a made, which would require a version check.

Personal Paint (PPaint) is not written in Blitz Basic. You may be thinking of Perfect Paint (PfPaint) which IIRC was developed using AmiBlitz.

Hmm.. I feel little stupid, but I can't see how I can download the new version from AMIStore page? There's only Register in Account menu, but no Login or such, and PPaint link has only buy option, but not update.

And that A-EON Secure Download website doesn't list it either, only some RadeonHD and X1000 stuff. But seems if I try to download any of those wrong files I finally get to the page where get the PPaint update.

Maybe some fine tuning for user experience is still needed :)

@jpv

You need to open the AMIStore App Store program on Workbench, login and then click on My Purchases and Downloads. Then click the PPaint entry that is listed to download the new version.

The AMIStore website doesn't offer direct downloads.

@broadblues:

Please add 32Bit-Screen for PPaint.

Why?

When switching between my 32Bit screens and PPaint comes next, my TFT-Monitor (or RadonHD-Card?) needs 2-3 Seconds to switch to that 8Bit-Screen.

That is most disurbing.

Btw i bought previous Version for OS4.
Great work and enhancements so far!
