Es wurde eine neue Version von Amiga in a box (aiab) veröffentlicht, dem Amiga-rundum-Sorglospacket.


A new version of Amiga in a Box (aiab) was released.


Quote:
Update Info (version r10.5) 11/12/05
~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~

This archive is just an ´extract-over-the-top´ package that updates a few
things here and there, and generally improves things in one way or another
- in other words, its what the original archive should have been... but
wasn´t quite Wink

Simply extract this zip over the top of an existing AIAB r10/r10a/r10b/r10c
setup and everything should be dandy. I´d also recommend using the ´Update
Icons´ script (in the Start Menu) which will correct icon positioning, as
well as add any new programs etc.

File Updates:

- Updated, then later adjudged to be unnecessary; consequently removed.

Modules/Rename.module ---> 40.2

Prefs/Scalos/FileTypes.prefsplugin ---> 40.11
Prefs/Scalos/Menu.prefsplugin ---> 40.15
Prefs/Scalos/Palette.prefsplugin ---> 40.9
Prefs/Scalos/Pattern.prefsplugin ---> 40.13
Prefs/Scalos/Scalos FileTypes ---> 40.11
Prefs/Scalos/Scalos Menu ---> 40.15
Prefs/Scalos/Scalos Palette ---> 40.9
Prefs/Scalos/Scalos Pattern ---> 40.13
Prefs/Scalos/Scalos Prefs ---> 40.18

- Now Updated menus for new Scalos 40.xx features.
- Fixed ´Open with--->GoldED´ entry, which would always guru.
- Added some AIAB logo iCandy to Scalos.
- Added ´NOWAIT´ argument to ´c:loadwb.scalos´ line in startup-sequence.
VisualPrefs now sets pens/palette correctly when Scalos screen opens.
- Enabled TrueType font rendering for icon text - a real memory killer!
- Increased default spacing for text/icons, improving ´cleanup´ appearance.

- Update ENVARC:sys/font.prefs to fix ´double shadow´ problem with new Scalos.
- There are still one or two quirks that need to be ironed out with this latest
version; namely that patterns do not display correctly in the Pattern Prefs
preview area, and the option to display thumbnail icons for images creates
blank icons under P96.
- Despite indications to the contrary, Scalos Prefs still requires small image
files in its SCALOS:Themes/Prefs folder in order to load successfully.
- Thanks to Jean-Marie Coat for coding a plugin to hide the ENV: volume from
the desktop, and allowing me to use it in here. I gather that the next Scalos
version will offer such functionality internally, however for the time being
Jean-Marie´s plugin works well.

AIAB-OS4 Theme: AIAB now sports a modern VP/Birdie theme; based on
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ AmigsOS4, with some elements redesigned from scratch.
Big thanks to Bernd Gollesch for his assistance.

C:Birdie ---> 1.5 (´2000´ version is unnecessary)
Prefs/.../AIAB-OS4-Images/* ---> 1.0 (hand-painted!)
S:JIT-Startup ---> 2.0

- ENVARC:TitleShadow.prefs enabled ´Birdie Mode´, disabled inactive shadow.
- Added Birdie checking in s:JIT-Startup, preventing VisualPrefs issues.


PNG Icons: Accompanying the new VP theme, whilst providing a splendid
~~~~~~~~~ example of Scalos´ ongoing improvements, AIAB now offers
PNG icon functionality; beautifully demonstrated by Damir
Sijakovic´s, ´Cat_i´ iconset. Massive thankyou to ´d980´!

- Added PNG icon functionality, updating ´Set Iconset´ scripts according.
- ´Cat_i´ PNG icons have been manually tweaked; scaled to 85% and resaved
using PNGout compression, minimising filesize and possibly improving speed.
- Removed ´Cancel´ option from ´Set Iconset´ requestor shown at AIAB Setup;
it wouldn´t be terribly wise to overlook installing icons...
- Added workaround for Scalos´PNG icon bugs/issues:
* Shell.info --> converted to NewIcon; tooltype parsing fixed.
* ScreenTab.info --> converted to NewIcon; tooltype parsing fixed.
* GUI.info --> ´Start from´ changed to ´Shell´; program opens.
* Clock.info --> ´Start from´ changed to ´Shell´; program opens.


TTEngine: Further improving the standard UI, AIAB now utilises TrueType
~~~~~~~~ font rendering for icon text labels. Extra typefaces can be
installed by using the ´TTEmanager´ preferences programme.

LIBS:ttengine.library ---> 7.1
Prefs/TTEManager ---> 1.2
FONTS:_TTF/*.ttf ---> n/a

- ´TraditionellSans-Bold.ttf´ has been slightly modified (v1.1) from the original
freeware typeface by Manfred Klein, to improve icon text appearance and kerning.


AmiStart: The rather splendid ´AmiStart´ start-menu program has been added
~~~~~~~~ to the setup, thus rounding-off the visual improvements to AIAB.
This fine tool from Darius Brewka offers extensive configurability
options, documented online at: http://people.freenet.de/dariusb/ .

SYS:Tools/Amistart/*.* ---> Images by ´d980´ and myself
SYS:WBStartup/AmiStart ---> 0.66b

- Functionality to select preferred start-menu program (´AmiStart´ / ´ScreenTab´).
- Boosted WinUAE system memory size for added stability (see information below).
- Unreleased beta version offers functionality under Kickstart 3.0 and adds several
extra customisable features (bitmap arrow gadgets etc.)


MUI:
~~~
MUI:libs/mui/BetterString.mcc ---> 11.7
MUI:libs/mui/BetterString.mcp ---> 11.4
MUI:libs/mui/HotKeyString.mcc ---> 12.2
MUI:libs/mui/NFloattext.mcc ---> 19.51
MUI:libs/mui/NList.mcc ---> 20.116
MUI:libs/mui/NListtree.mcc ---> 18.23
MUI:libs/mui/NListtree.mcp ---> 18.11
MUI:libs/mui/NListview.mcc ---> 19.71
MUI:libs/mui/NListview.mcp ---> 19.67
MUI:libs/mui/Popplaceholder.mcc ---> 15.5
MUI:libs/mui/Textinput.mcc ---> 29.3
MUI:libs/mui/Textinput.mcp ---> 29.3
MUI:libs/mui/TextinputScroll.mcc---> 29.3
MUI:libs/mui/Urltext.mcc ---> 19.7
MUI:libs/mui/Urltext.mcp ---> 19.7

- Removed MagicWB.mcp/FontDisplay.mcp compatibility duplicates, as
they are unnecessary thanks to WinUAE´s filesystem improvements.
- Added workaround for possible NTFS filesystem issues preventing
the idiosyncratically named ´«Global».prefs´ from being used. Now
the file is extracted during the ´AIAB Setup´ process.


WHDload:
~~~~~~~
c:DIC ---> 1.0
c:LHA ---> 2.11
c:Patcher ---> 1.06
c:RawDIC ---> 1.7
c:WHDload ---> 16.4

Misc:
~~~~
C:MCPcachefontlist ---> 0.1b
C:SnoopDos ---> 3.8
C:Installer ---> 44.10
SYS:system/scout ---> 3.4
LIBS:identify.library ---> 37.1
LIBS:vapor_toolkit.library ---> 15.12
LIBS:Picasso96/rtg.library ---> 40.3993
CLASSES:images/titlebar.image ---> 40.15



Misc. Tweaks:
============

- MCPcachefontlist coded on request by Dieter Groppé (thanks!), is run
automatically at startup to ensure the fontcache is always up-to-date.
- Reverted back to the original, non-optimised muimaster.library after
reports that it can cause incompatibility. MUI programs may ´feel´
slower as a result.
- Increased SYS:System/Scout.info icon stack size to 16000.
- Added updated/optimised ´rtg.library´ from Bernd Roesch
- Removed ´DEVS:Monitors/UAEgfx.info´ as it is unnecessary.
- Removed ´C:MagicMenu.info´ as it is unnecessary.
- MagicMenu now uses the ´Gap´ method to render separator bars.
- Native AHI support is working again since WinUAE 0.8.22!
- Moved l:env-handler to c: & modified startup scripts accordingly.
- Tweaked a few more MCP settings; enabled solid window moving/sizing;
disabled screen dimmer/blanker.
- Removed C:Visage and all its references (def_icons, DOPUS etc.) as
viewing images using Multiview/Datatypes is arguably preferable.
- Added ´stack 32000´ line to ´S:startup-sequence´ to help VisualPrefs
related stack overflow lockups when (re)opening Workbench screen
(e.g. changing resolutions). Thanks to Bernd Roesch for the tip.
- Commented out ´wait 1´ line in ´S:aiab-startup´, initially added for
RexxMast startup compatibility, but seemingly unnecessary now...
- Switched to ´zDir´ for the default ´Dir´ command; various reasons.
- S:Shell-Startup tweaked; shell windows now use a black background.
- Remade default.uae WinUAE configuration file using WinUAE v1.0.
Given the UI improvements, I´ve decided to bump-up the specs of the
emulated Amiga a little - take a look at the FAQ for more information.
- SysSpeed benchmark module using WinUAE v1.0 and default.uae settings.
- Updated older GlowIcons/ProLite iconsets, adding missing icons etc.
- Added a ´Open Folder´ button to DirectoryOpus for...opening folders.
- Remade the Windows ´AIAB.ico´ icon; now uses alpha blended.
- Finally replaced InstallerNG with the official version from OS3.5 NDK.
- Bumped version number up to ´r10.5´.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thats it - cya!
