Icaros Desktop 2.2.6Print


icaros desktop bannerPaolo Besser has released an update of his AROS-distribution Icaros Desktop. In version 2.2.6 the muimaster.library written by Neil Cefferkey was added providing "support for ESC-A method of embedding images into strings, which basically allows rapagui-based applications to show images into buttons and other GUI gadgets". Besides, now it is possible to record debug logs and updates of DCRaw, VIM and AmiCast Player were added as well as the ZuPaPlayer. Adding EasyRPG Player, "a great interpreter a la ScummVM for games created with RPG Maker 2000 and 2003" is supposed to be one of the highlights of the new version. Finally, for players the games "Kidnapping of Princess Pri" and "Grimps: Squeaking of the Dead" are now included. 

EmuLa available for AROS i386Print


I'm glad to announce that the first public release of EmuLa is available for AROS i386.

PortablE r6 Beta ReleasedPrint


peChris Handley released a small update to PortablE:

  • Built-in procedures can now support unlimited parameters (although only some have been updated to use this ability).
  • Improved MUI & ReAction modules to use procedures with unlimited parameters (instead of immedate tag lists). So the C/C++ code generated for GUIs is now human-readable!
  • Added the NoListOptim switch, so that the code generated for Immediate Lists can be more human-readable.
  • AmigaOS4: Added the 'intuition/menuclass' module, aka "AISS menus", and the example program "Examples/Amiga/OS4_ReAction/MenuClass.e".
  • When a bug exception was thrown during compilation, it could give the wrong message. Now fixed.
  • Fixed a few module bugs.

You can download it from Aminet & OS4Depot:

Port Python 2.7 core to AROSPrint


p2pPorting it to AROS not only brings a lot of software, but it allows to quickly create new ones too, and to better manage the system, since Python versatility goes from fast GUI applications prototyping to system administration, from testing to astronomical big data analysis, and so on. Python can be considered the Swiss knife of computer science.

Since the big effort required for the port, this bounty is the first of a series of 5 that will bring this language/platform to AROS. In fact, the port is ideally split in the following 5 parts:

  • Python 2.7 core;
  • PyZune (a complete Python binding for the Zune library);
  • Python 2.7 external libs (bzip2, Berkeley db, openssl, sqlite3);
  • Python 2.7 external libs (tcl, tk). This is optional or with a very low priority, since Tcl/Tk is used to build application with GUI, but for AROS the priority is making the same, albeit using Zune as natural and native replacement;
  • Python 3.5.
