   posted by amigakit on 19-Jul-2017 21:42:58 (4105 reads)
Enhancer Software Package v1.3
Further enhancing your AmigaOS PowerPC experience


Cardiff, July 19th 2017

A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce that the new Enhancer Software v1.3 has been released on AMIStore App Store for OS 4. The Enhancer Software is a collection of utilities, commodities, classes, datatypes and libraries with the aim of enhancing the AmigaOS experience. It is the result of about six months worth of hard work by the AmigaDeveloper.com Team.

V1.3 is the third major update to the Enhancer Software package in the last year and is the most ambitious release to date. It introduces a host of new features, utilities and updates which further enhance the AmigaOS experience.

As with the earlier V1.2 release the new update delivers three distinct feature rich editions:

* The Plus Edition with latest advanced RadeonHD v2.22 graphic drivers, Warp3D Nova v1.41, OpenGL ES 2.0 v1.15 and the full Workbench CANDI package.

* The Standard Edition with the latest RadeonHD v1.21 graphics drivers, Warp3D Nova v1.41, OpenGL ES 2.0 v1.15 and a reduced subset of four Workbench CANDI backdrops.

* The Special Edition version for older AmigaOne and compatible models, including Classic PowerPC and PowerPC emulation.


New in the Plus & Standard Enhancer Software editions:

* RadeonHD drivers v2.22 & v1.21 now support UHD 4K screenmodes on HDMI 1.3+ monitors.
* Warp3D Nova & Warp3D Nova SI library v1.41 with 4K Warp3D Nova demo.
* OpenGLES library v1.15.

New features included in all three editions:
* Updater utility: keep your Enhancer Software and AMIStore purchases fully up to date.
* AmiSphere Server & Preferences to control AMIStore logins and passwords.
* USB PTP driver with iOS support.
* New Gadgets classes: ListViewer, Thumblist and Anim.
* Animated icons in Ringhio Notifications Server supporting new Anim gadget class.
* TuneNet now supports Shoutcast v2 API and animated notifications during station scanning & playback.
* New Libraries: Codesets, Z and EXIF.
* Multiviewer now supports EXIF lib with added snapshot function and auto JPEG image rotation.
* New SystemReboot command.

Updates included in all editions:
* Time, Sound, Notification preferences and Format command.
* MultiEdit, Clock, Calendar, Exchanger and X-Dock utilities.
* Clock and SliderBar Gadget Classes.
* InfoWindow Class.
* MPEGA and WAV Datatypes.

Special Thanks
A special thanks to the AmigaDeveloper.com team of developers, translators and beta testers who contributed to the v1.3 release.

The team has worked hard over the months, dedicating large amounts of time to create this release and establish a solid software foundation for future developments.

For more information please visit: wiki.amiga.org/enhancersoftware



TuneNet has been now updated to support Shoutcast v2 API support. The UI has been reworked under the "Internet Radio" section with a Genre Select Gadget button where users can choose their favourite music genre and filter the radio station search results.




Animated images inside Ringhio Notification bubbles as well as optional progress bar support:



Updater

Any software you purchase with an AmiSphere serial key label on the back can be registered inside Updater and it will automatically get added to your purchases list. When the software is updated, it is displayed in Updater and you can download the upgrade quickly and easily with a few clicks





SystemReboot

Here is the picture attachment of the orange progressbar gadget in SystemReboot. Once it reaches a "critical" level to signify that the system is imminently going to restart (in 6 seconds in this example).

Sundown,

Check AMIStore for the relevant RadeonHD v2.x update.

Contact me if it doesn’t show as an update in your list of downloads.

Thank you for the update!

I found a small slip when running SYS:System/Updater:
It displays the local "AmiSphere" version to be "null, nothing is displayed" and the Remote version is 53.24; however the local file in SYS:Prefs is version 53.26.

best regards!

I first bought the RadeonHD v1.x driver (on AmiStore).
Later I also bought the RadeonHD v2.x driver...

So now I have the RadeonHD v1.21 and RadeonHD v2.10.

But It seems that I'll be stuck with RadeonHD v2.10 forever!?
- Since I bought the Standard Edition (already having bought the full CANDI package, separate).

I have contacted A-EON regarding this (how to update to RadeonHD v2.18) on their homepage 4 weeks ago and also sent them an e-mail 2 weeks ago, but no response yet.
On AmiStore, nothing newer than Radeon HD v2.10 is accessible to me.

Do I also have to buy the Plus Edition, just to get a new RadeonHD v2.x driver..?

I was always curious, what is the SystemReboot util good for? Is it able close some running programs or info user tho work is not saved... Or is it just something Windows has so we should have it too?

The RadeonHD bought separately from AMIStore has already had a few free updates to v2.10 for non-Enhancer Software users.

The Enhancer Software contains a newer version of the RadeonHD v2.22 which has specific functionality for Warp3D Nova and the higher resolution screenmodes that Nova will require going forward. The components of the Enhancer Software are closely integrated and all the elements will be collectively upgraded as a package as they are/will be dependencies of each other.

@ExiE

SystemReboot can be invoked by either the CLI or Workbench. It features a timeout, which once gets to a "critical level", sends messages for applications to automatically shutdown in advance ready for system reset.

@Tommysammy

Thanks!

Thanks for the PMail.

Thanks, I found the icon.

It was well worth upgrading. RadeonHD v2.22 is a great improvement...

Nice, largely seamless update, thanks.

The new Ringhio seems a bit broken though? The Notification prefs froze on startup, and after I'd rebooted and tried again, froze when hovering over the "project" menu. I also had no notifications. I reverted back to the old one and had to reset my Notifications prefs back to defaults before the notification re-appeared.

I have a stack trace:

We have been running it for some time without any problems. Did you install it in the correct location and not mix it with the old Ringhio ?

Did you install the classes and gadgets from the Enhancer Software in the correct place?

It's not obvious from the chnages mentioned above but the bug in MultiViewer that some people have been experiencing when viewing text and other non picture datatypes has been fixed in this release.

Yes, everything installed in default location. Now I've reverted those two components (Notification and NotificationServer) and reset the config it's working again.

@chris_Y
@amigakit

Notifications did the same here too, but only once. I can not reproduce it anymore.
All I can say is, I had the language set to english 8859-15, after the reboot I changed to french and it did not freeze. I reverted to english 8859-15 which is my default language and it did not freeze again.
