|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.
