|A new version of the AmiCygnix packages AmiCygnix-Base and AmiCygnix-Tools are now available on OS4-Depot. An existing installation of AmiCygnx 1.0 can be updated - older software package can still be used.|
Upcoming AmiCygnix software will depend on this new version.
AmiCygnix is a Unix environment, which makes it easy to port Unix software with or without a GUI.
The main enhancements in the base package:
Support of programs compiled with GTK+ 2.24 and GTK+ 3.x.
A new (experimental) display driver, which opens the X11 display in a normal intuition window on the workbench.
The X server can now be launched several times without problems. So you can now - for example - launch several applications separately on the workbench.
Upcoming software and included programs in the "Software" drawer provides a new script for a standalone start in an own window or screen. A special version of myX11Setup is included for this.
A new icon theme for AmiCygnix programs in AmigaOS 4.1 style.
All workbench icons in these packages are now in AmigaOS 4.1 style.
The previous version of AmiCygnix could not be installed on partitions formatted with JXFS. This bug is now solved.
The optional tools package contains newer versions of the so far included software and a new settings editor for the desktop background (all compiled with GTK+ 2.24):
The file manager "ROX-Filer 2.10"
The web browser "NetSurf 2.8"
The text editor "Leafpad 0.8.18.1" with UTF-8 support
The image viewer "GPicView 0.2.2"
The PDF viewer "Xpdf 3.03"
The settings editor for GTK+ 2 and 3 "LXAppearance 0.5.1"
The settings editor for the Openbox window manager "ObConf 2.0.3"
The settings editor for the desktop background "Gsetroot 1.1"
