Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Ringhio Notifications Updated To Version 53.60
   posted by amigakit on 18-Aug-2016 1:25:52 (2469 reads)
Ringhio, the notifications system for AmigaOS4, was acquired by A-EON Technology Ltd in 2015. Development had stalled at the time, with the last public update of version 53.22 dated in 2011. Since coming under the A-EON umbrella of software, it has been under regular development by the AmigaDeveloper.com Team with many bugs fixed and feature enhancements added.

The first new public release was delivered in May 2016 with the Enhancer Software v1.0 release, adding sound support, colour wheel, InfoWindow Class support and Final Edition features such as New Menu.

Subsequently, internal development over the last few months on Ringhio Notifications has continued by team members Andy Broad, Daniel Jedlicka and Guillaume Boesel, Rene Olsen and most recently Massimiliano Tretene (Max).

The latest version 53.60 has just added a notable feature of Progress Bar Gadget Class support inside the Notification pop-up "bubble". With this, an animated progress bar can be displayed in the corner of the screen so the user can monitor progress of a file download for example or another lengthy task running in the background.



It is hoped that this latest feature will be quickly adopted for use in AmigaOS applications by developers.

It can already be controlled by Ringhio's Arexx port with some new commands added.

A-EON Technology would like to thank the developers for their hard work on updating Ringhio Notifications over the last year and we are looking forward to adding more features in the near future as a commitment to improving the quality of software provided in the Enhancer Software.

The update will be made available to Enhancer Software users free of charge later this month.

The Enhancer Software can be obtained as a download from AMIStore App Store or as a boxed product from selected dealers.







Arexx example:

[code]
DO loop=15 to 101 by 5
address RINGHIO
'RINGHIO APP=TESTRINGHIO NOLOG PERCENTAGE=' loop /* just update the progressbar gadget */

address command
wait 1
END
[/code]

Handy if you're batch processing images, rendering or encoding media files in the background. Can you display more than one progress bar in a notification popup?

Cool! Can this be controlled through application.library? Otherwise it's a bit pointless.

It can also receive commands:

- APPNOTIFY_NOLog (BOOL) tag to not log the notification message, the same can be done via AREXX with NOLOG/S
- APPNOTIFY_Percentage (uint32) tag to show a progress bar in the notification popup message

Great to see such original work coming out of the team.

Just wish I had some spare time to join in. Oh well, maybe one day...

Cool to see some modern features coming in, thank you!
Also glad to see the original developer (Max) coming back

Thanks guys!

We are so pleased to see Max working again on this project. I know he shares my enthusiasm for building the Enhancer Software and bringing additional modern features to the AmigaOS platform.

Wonderful, thanks. Is there an SDK? Or at least the values of these #defines?

I'm a bit confused about these "will be released in X weeks" announcements. Will there be another press release once the actual updates for this and Tunenet are available? I'd actually welcome that, since I'd rather make a news item once the software in question is available.

Yes there will be an "overview" announcement but unfortunately there is a lot of detail in these recent announcements that cannot be included later so hence the need for the separate news items. It will be information overload if we put all the information in one large announcement, and also it will not reflect the significant progress that has been made on each individual project.

Nice, but the layout is terrible.
Balance it and left align the text and progressbar and make the space between the icon and the text smaller. Actually all margins needs some tweaking.
