|The MUI for AmigaOS development team is proud to announce the immediate release of version 4.0-2016R3 and 5.0-2016R2 of the Magic User Interface for AmigaOS4/PPC and AmigaOS3/m68k. Please find the release archives in our download section.|
Like all former releases a keyfile is required to enable all available settings. Old keyfiles from MUI 3.8 can be used without any restriction.
Please note that MUI4 and MUI5 for AmigaOS3/m68k is definitely targeted at powerful systems with a fast CPU and a fast graphic board. Although it is still possible to run this release on a real 68k machine an emulation like WinUAE is very highly recommended. Also colormapped screens with 256 colors at most are still supported, but MUI4 and MUI5 make heavy use of fancy truecolor images and effects which cannot be provided on colormapped screens with the full range of possibilities.
These are the most important new features of MUI5:
- inline editing in List objects
- built-in hooks for multicolumn lists
- built-in handling of sortable list columns
- support for fixed (initial) width list columns
- new Textdata class to support UTF8 encoded text (via codesets.library)
- new reordering methods for Group and Family class
This will be the last release of MUI4 for AmigaOS. All further development will be continued with MUI5 for AmigaOS.
