Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : MUI 5.0-2016R1 for AmigaOS4/PPC and AmigaOS3/m68k released
   posted by tboeckel on 29-Aug-2016 9:46:53 (5314 reads)
The MUI for AmigaOS development team is proud to announce the immediate release of version 5.0-2016R1 of the Magic User Interface for AmigaOS4/PPC and AmigaOS3/m68k. Please find the release archives in our download section.

Like all former releases a keyfile is required to enable all available settings. Old keyfiles from MUI 3.8 can be used without any restriction.

Please note that MUI5 for AmigaOS3/m68k is definitely targeted at powerful systems with a fast CPU and a fast graphic board. Although it is still possible to run this release on a real 68k machine an emulation like WinUAE is very highly recommended. Also colormapped screens with 256 colors at most are still supported, but MUI5 makes heavy use of fancy truecolor images and effects which cannot be provided on colormapped screens with the full range of possibilities.

These are the most important new features of MUI5:

- inline editing in List objects
- built-in hooks for multicolumn lists
- built-in handling of sortable list columns
- support for fixed (initial) width list columns
- new Textdata class to support UTF8 encoded text (via codesets.library)
- new reordering methods for Group and Family class

I took a look at their documentation and this release appears to minimize some incompatibilities introduced earlier. For example MUI_List_Format was changed to accept minwidth/maxwidth in pixels and they obsoleted their earlier fixwidth setting.

There are also differences and some of them are due to different MUI philosophy. We did not agree adding MUIA_MinWidth/MinHeight because it does not fit to font insensitive design. Setting minwidth to some value may work on one configuration but not on another. This request came from MUI Royale and we rejected the idea.

So it is based on 4.0 beta after all. But how did they get the hand on that code? Considering Stuntz is part of the MorphOS Team and that MUI 4+ is a MorphOS exclusive it does seem very implausable that he would give that code away. Maybe parts of it to fix some bugs from earlier versions, but all of it? Not to mention that he wasn't happy with the release.

I want to know as it matters more than the autodocs thing.

Probably Stunzi (as author), give what he think he can give :) I do not know, but maybe it was version till date where he works alone, and not other's code was involved. But thats only imho.

Yeah, right now we can't draw any conclusion.
