Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Enhancer Software 1.2 Released
   posted by amigakit on 27-Dec-2016 21:10:46 (9432 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.

GDDR3 memory is not a problem in the OLand cards, I have an R7 240 that works fine with the update, GFXBench results here:

AFAIK the previous version of SFS is still included with AmigaOS 4.1 FE Update 1 Pre-Release.

HD-Rec and Samplemanager both use the AHI prefs to select their audio output and expect it to be in the prefs drawer in Workbench. There may be other audio apps that do the same. It's easily fixed by copying it back but it may trip up some users.

HD-Rec should be fairly easily updated as it is GPL. Is Sample Manager the same?

Perhaps a better solution might be to link the AHI icon to the AHI tab of the new prefs program, similarly to how printer prefs handles this. (PrinterGFX opens the GFX tab of Printer prefs)

Programs that expect AHI prefs to exist (and there are many) then don't need to be updated.

I never noticed the issue as my SAM does not have a general install of Enhancer, only my X1000 and I don't do audio apps on the X1k at the moment.

So, to make it depends on Enhancer totally ?:))

Probably idea of rewriting system prefs programms are not good enough and will make 2 kind of mess: First ones are mess because of updates. Second one, are mess of programms which depends on system components, which will be replaced. Imho, better avoid replacing system components, and concetrate only on 3d party software. But that imho, of course.

Sounds like a better solution. Hopefully it can be added pretty quickly and the Enhancer archive updated so nobody gets caught unaware.

HI,

Nice set of upgrades and additions. Haven't had time to test/play with all of them yet, but I have encountered a couple of oddities.

1. The new Calender utility.
Dragging the calendar from one location on the screen to another location results in the program window flickering for anywhere from about 2 seconds to 10 seconds, after that all is fine and stable.

2. ClipViewer
Does not seem to respond to the ClickToFront commodity. While it will respond to the depth gadget, if the depth gadget is covered, clicking on the window will not bring the window to the front.

No such problem here using an X1000 with Radeon R9 280. What is your configuration?

I have found that the system can lock, requiring a hard reset when accessing the calender's menu. It only happens when accessing the menu in pop up mode. Accessing it from the title bar seems fine. Can anyone replicate this behaviour?

Confirmed that it also happens on my system

Hi,

I have:

Sam460Lite
AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition
Radeon hd 6450 graphics card
RadeonHD Chip v2.21

Having compiled this list, it occurs to me that I might not have the correct
monitor driver installed. Won't be able to check until tomorrow.

Maybe, just wait for AmigaOS 4.1 FE Update 1...

We will look into any little niggles or glitches reported and address them quickly as soon as they are found by our developers. User feedback is invaluable for us for improving the product.

@Rob @Nicsoft

For Calendar locks, if you can, could you send me the serial or the crashlogs, please ?

Could you send me, too, the Calendar.info to check your tooltypes.

thank you
Guillaume

Regarding the Calendar, I don't get the flicking when moving the calendar but I do get the lockups when accessing the popup menu.

If i bring the menu up by right clicking anywhere on the actual calendar itself (where the days are) I don't get a lockup but if I right click at the top where it says the month/year and the arrows pop up to move through the months then I get a lockup every time.

Sam460 with a radeon hd7750.

Where does it save the crashlogs ?.

@eroom

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately, I just tried with ESP Calendar version and I'm unable to reproduce it.
If it locks your system, you will not have a crashlog, could you start Sashimi and see if there is an output during lockup ?

thx
