After a long development break, new versions of the basic packages for the Unix environment "AmiCygnix" were released. In the main, bugs have been fixed which prevented the proper function of the X server on new Amiga systems.

New in AmiCygnix-Base:
  • All display drivers and the X server binary were revised to fix the following problems:

    - With newer graphics cards like the Radeon HD 7xxx the colours of the display were wrong. Fixed with the standard drivers and the rest for the most part.
    - Since AmigaOS 4.1 final Update 1 it came to program crashes, if the graphic driver picasso96clonewbdb was used. Is fixed now.

  • The display driver picasso96clonewbdb can now also open 32 bit screens internally, however, the data is still processed in 16 bits.

  • The print command "lpr" now supports the printout via Turboprint whereby the print quality is increased.

  • Updated SSL support over OpenSSL and GnuTLS. The included Trusted Certificates have been updated.

  • Many more improvements and bug fixes.

  • New in AmiCygnix-Tools:

  • The browser NetSurf has been relinked with OpenSSl 1.01o. Many SSL keyed pages could not be opened anymore. The problem is now largely eliminated.

  • Current versions of the image viewer GPicView and the GTK+ 2.0 toolkit adjuster LXAppearance.
