Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Enhancer Software 1.2 Released
   posted by amigakit on 27-Dec-2016 21:10:46 (9433 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.

Is the R9 270X supported? One of the dealers is selling it as compatible but Wikipedia shows it as Curaçao XT and not Oland. It is in the Volcanic Islands line.

Thanks

R9 270, 270X, 280 and 280X are all supported. I think you can trust the dealer on this.

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


I think my serial to USB is in the car but the driver disc is somewhere else and the only system with it installed is my Laptop which isn't at home right now. So I won't be able to provide serial output for a little while.

@zzd10h

Perhaps AmigaOS is the problem here, not Calendar? (Uboot or the USB-drivers)
I have the same type of locks also with Odyssey!
I have to start Odyssey and wait a while before using it, otherwise it locks!
The support for Logitech mice & keyboards is not up to date, it seems...

@Hans

Is there any progress about supporting the 2560x1080 resolution on UltraWide monitors ?

@AmigaKit,

Imposible to buy for myself.
I add Enhancer pack to my bag, I click on checkout.
Then I'm redirected to Paypal but it's impossible to finalize transaction.

PayPal website displays this kind of message:
"We can not finalize your purchase for the moment Return to the merchant's site and choose another payment method."

What's wrong? (I've already bought with Amistore without problem and I use my Paypal account regulary)

Thanks for advance for your help

I know i may have missed it, but from a quick search and glance on your websites i cannot find anything...so...

Would you be so kind to post the bugtracker site for the Enhancer package (and probably all the other programs) or at least add a link on amigakit.com and/or the A-EON site?

Thanks a lot

@SinanG

What cable are you using to connect to your monitor. 2560x1080 is above the limit of what a single link DVI cable can transmit.

@Sinan

Discussed the issue internally when you brought it to my attenion. In your case we plan to implement a new library which can be used by the next version of the RadeonHD driver. We hope to have this ready for the next Enhancer Software update which will bring new functionality that hasn't been available before.

A quick update with your point on the deprecated AHI Prefs.

We added a new argument to the Sound Prefs application. I then made some tests and typed in a CLI:

alias AHI "SYS:Prefs/Sound MODESETTINGS"

Then when I tried to run AHI, the new Sound Prefs opens with the ModeSettings tab enabled.

an alias by itself may not so the rick in all contexts, I think we need a 'stub program' called AHI (or maybe even just a link and text of the program name loonix stylee).

@amigakit

Thanks for the information..It will increase the productivity of AmigaOS4 on UW monitors.

Please know that I am ready for testing you are testing the next version of RadeonHD on multiple Amigas and R7 series graphic cards.

@Rob

It is not a hardware related problem since same setup displays 2560x1080 on Ubuntu Linux.

I am glad that Hans and AmigaKit will be working on a solution to overcome this limitation.

Thanks.

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


Yes, that solved the problem.

Hi,

Another oddity. This time with Time Prefs. Specifically in making the
Daylight Savings Time settings.

1st tab of Time Prefs [System Time]:
I check - Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saviings Time

In the space below, the following text appears:
'DST will begin on Sunday March 26 2017 12:00 AM'

This is not true in the USA, so I click on the [Advanced Options] tab.
(In the USA Daylight Savings Time will begin on March 12, 2017 at 2:00 am)

I make the appropriate adjustments on the 'Begin' line - except for the hours
field where I am unable to change the hour, just whether it is am or pm.

In the space below I get the correct Day and Date, but the Month that appears
is the prior month - i.e. if I select March, the line indicates February.

The same holds true for 'End' line
Day and Date are correct, but the Month is the prior month i.e. November
shows up as October.

This is under AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition Upgrade 1

I posted this on the original Enhancer package announcement but that probably isn't being checked any more so I'm asking again here.


If you bought the plus version and install it on a system that doesn't support a certain feature (like RadeonHD for example) is the installer smart enough to NOT install them?

Thanks
