Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Enhancer Software 1.2 Released
   posted by amigakit on 27-Dec-2016 21:10:46 (8286 reads)
A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to deliver another major update to the Enhancer Software for AmigaOS 4.1 systems. The Enhancer Software version 1.2 package demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the AmigaOS platform. We are pleased to confirm that it is available as a free download from AMIStore for existing registered users. New customers can either purchase a digital download from AMIStore or a buy a boxed CD from selected Amiga dealers.

The year 2016 has been a busy and productive time for the new AmigaDeveloper.com Team. In May, Enhancer Software v1.0 was released, shortly afterwards in August the v1.1 package was completed and released to the public. Version 1.2 in now the ultimate release of 2016 and represents a snapshot of the complete year's work by the team.

Enhancer Software Special Edition
For the first time to meet popular demand, there is now a low cost version called the Enhancer Software Special Edition. This is aimed at lower specification and older computer systems that cannot use the RadeonHD, Warp3D Nova/OpenGL ES 2.0. The lower priced Special Edition is identical to the other versions of the Enhancer Software however, CANDI, RadeonHD, Warp3D Nova and OpenGL ES 2.0 have been omitted from the package.

RadeonHD updated with Oland chipset support
In the Standard Edition and Plus Edition, RadeonHD driver has been significantly updated. RadeonHD Oland chipset is now supported which opens up a wider range of graphics cards which can run on the Amiga and run with Warp3D Nova. Oland chipset based graphics cards can be currently more easily obtained at lower costs which we are hoping will encourage more users to upgrade to modern graphics hardware.

Warp3D Nova and Open GL ES 2.0 updated
Also present in the Standard Edition and Plus Edition are big updates to Warp3D Nova (v1.34) and OpenGL ES 2.0 (v1.12). The features supported by Nova have been increased and performance has been boosted which have been taken advantage of by the optimised OpenGL ES 2.0 library.

Utilities updated
Popular applications such as TuneNet have been steadily upgraded over the last few months. Additionally, development resource has been invested in to AmiPDF, Clock, MultiEdit, MultiViewer, X-Dock to keep them incrementally progressing and meeting the demands of user feedback. A "skinnable" Calendar application (based on the new datesheet gadget) has now been added to complement the "skinnable" Clock application from the previous release. Also the clipboard manager, ClipViewer has been updated to accommodate user feedback.

New Prefs applications added
There are now two new Prefs applications added which have been taken and adapted from the forthcoming Enhancer Software OS3 package. The new Sound Prefs combines the functionality of the old AHI and Sound Prefs together and introduces support for multi-channel sound device tests and new sound datatype as well as updating the GUI. The Time Prefs features a modern GUI using the new datesheet and clock gadget classes. The time can even be set by clicking on the hands of the clock and spinning them around!

Gadgets and Classes updated and added
To take advantage of the new gadgets and classes, almost all the software has been transitioned to utilise them in an ongoing rolling upgrade programme.

A-EON would like to take this opportunity to publically thank the team as a whole: the developers, beta testers, translators, graphic artists. Their dedication and enthusiasm to progress the platform has made this release possible. Please check the "credits" section in the Enhancer Software to see a list of the contributors to this project.

I tried to download the update several times but I keep getting this error:

Error: enhancersoftware_plus.lha file is corrupt on download.
Expected file CRC32: Downloaded file CRC32: 3773209034

I sucessfully downloaded several other updates; only the enhancer failed. The expected CRC32 in the message is blank which might have something to do with the failure.

What are some of the new Radeon card models that can be recommended?

I take it though these new Oland card not for regular Warp3D? Just newer Nova?

Hi

Yes the new RadeonHD Oland driver will work with the older Warp3D SI driver as well as the new Warp3D Nova.

Oland chipset based cards are typically R7 240 and 250 series.

IIRC, someone (maybe Hans?) advised to steer clear of GDDR3 memory. The R7 240 seems to have GDDR3 memory. Can anyone update on this? Is GDDR3 memory problematic?

The table on Wikipedia suggests that both GDDR5 and DDR3 can be specified for that model.

Great update! Thanks for the new Standard edition!

But some more documentation would be useful!
So that TimeGuard v53.1 for example, is explained...

Concerning Radeon HD v2.21.
I still have v1.7 and v2.10. What's diffrent (more precisely)..?

(Time Prefs deleted my previous settings,
but I found another working NTP Server: pool.ntp.org)

That cool ! Through there is again no change logs ? Thats necessary, so users will know what exactly was changed, what was fixed or what new features was added. Its the same as we all the time ask from Hyperion years ago, and in end they make changelogs which is good.

For example, what exactly was fixed, or updated, or changed in Tunenet and AmiPDF ? Was AmiPDF radically changed ? Was Tunenet somehow extendent or just bug fixed ?

I.e just (updated) word not enough. Need whole list of changes/fixes for every component. That will help to all users to know what to check, and what new. Without changelog it kind of hard to know what new exactly.

Hope for next release there will be normal changelogs put publicaly. Thanks !

Thank you very much for the update!!
Really appreciated!

Currently having a look around and, as kas1e already mentioned, could not find a changelog detailing what has changed.
For example I would like to know what exactly do the commodity called "TimeGuard", for which I could not find the documentation.

@Xenic
Just downloaded the Plus edition, no problem.

Do you have enough free space in your volume where AMIStore is present ?
