Version 1.6 brings some innovations and updates. Some bugs have been fixed again.
Due to the update to GTK+ 2.24.32, AmiCygnix 1.6 will be a requirement for future software packages.

New in AmiCygnix-Base:
  • Update to version 2.24.32 of GTK+, the latest version of GTK+ 2. In addition to some new features, the drag 'n drop in GTK+ 2 applications now finally works. The corresponding programs have to be linked again. Programs like Rox-Filer or Gimp benefit greatly from this. Therefore, please pay attention to updates of these programs!
  • Full support for Unix locale strings. So you can now select the country, the encoding and special variants in addition to the language. You can also select multiple locales.
  • The size of the windows of the Workbench display driver can now be reduced with a size gadget (except Picasso96pip). The content can then be moved using a scroller.
  • [li] Support for version 3.16.3 of GnuTLS, the latest version of the SSL/TLS layer. Support for SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.3 is new. The Trusted Certificates included have also been updated. Problems with programs like NetSurf or Claws-Mail should be solved with it. However, the corresponding programs must be relinked.

    Therefore, please pay attention to updates of these programs![/li]
  • Support for LDAP through OpenLDAP 2.4.49. Is now integrated in libcurl and will also be used in Claws-Mail.
  • Support for AISS in the menus of the Workbench display driver.
  • Revised myX11Setup with improved help function. Thanks to Michael Christoph!
  • Italian translation updated in many AmiCygnix scripts. Thanks to Samir Hawamdeh!
  • New Spanish translation of the texts in the Workbench display driver. Thanks to Javier de las Rivas!
  • New catalog in Russian for myX11Setup. Thanks to Eugene Sobolev!
  • Fixed a problem when starting the AmiCygnix desktop via myX11Setup.

  • New in AmiCygnix-Tools:
  • All GTK+ 2 applications are now linked with GTK+ 2.24.32. In addition to some new features, the drag 'n drop now finally works.
  • The browser "NetSurf" is now linked with the latest version 3.6.13 of the SSL/TLS layer GnuTLS. This fixes problems with SSL connections.
  • The program "ROX-Filer" is configured during installation this way, that it can be used as a replacement for the "idesk" desktop manager.
