laf Schönweiß has released version 2.7 of the AROS/68k-distribution AROS Vision which among others has updated ROM-files.
PictureAlbum is a picture browser/organiser that works differently to anything else I've seen - I find it to be much easier & quicker to use. It's hard to describe briefly, so just try it out or look at a screenshot.
While it has all the basic features that I consider "essential", there is certainly a lot more that could be added if I found the time...
You can download PictureAlbum from Aminet.
* First release which isn't a 'preview' (although little has changed).
Screenshots from AmigaOS4 version (AROS version is pretty similar)

Pascal Papara has released another version of his Linux-hosted AROS-distribution AEROS, for the Odroid-models U2 and U3.
It is available in his App-Store (nr. 88) - this weekend it is for free, from next week on it will cost 7 Euro. On the next weekend a free version is announced which, similar to the version for the Raspberry Pi, will not include the lx-command.
In version 2.6.1 of his AROS/68k-distribution AROS Vision, Olaf Schönweiß uses MUI 3.8 instead of the AROS-implementation Zune (screenshot). Additionally, the MMU libraries and components as well as some files for developers (e.g. Pascal and AmiLua) have been updated.
Please note that some of the preferences only work with Zune, mainly Locale and Input. If you want to change these preferences, you can copy the Zune-version of the muimaster.library to Libs: and afterwards return to the original version (all required libraries are in the directory Libs:MUI_Change).
It is also recommended to install the Installer 43.3 of Amiga Technologies in directory C:
According to Bill Buck and Raquel Velasco, their company Genesi USA, Inc. will move from Austin, Texas, to Washington D.C. on July 1st. For this reason, the post address of power2people.org, which is used to collect donations for several AROS-projects, will change as well.
The future post address will be: 2600 Virginia Avenue NW, Washington D.C. 20037.
Olaf Schönweiß has updated his AROS/68k-distribution AROS Vision:
Press release: Airsoft Softwair is proud to announce the immediate availability of MUI Royale 1.1. This update contains some minor fixes and new features..
MUI Royale is a plugin for Hollywood 5 (screenshots: 1, 2, 3) that finally allows you to easily create MUI GUIs with Hollywood. MUI Royale supports over 40 MUI classes including popular third-party classes like TextEditor.mcc and TheBar.mcc.
Creating and managing menustrips is also fully supported. The plugin sets new standards concerning the ease of use because the GUI layout can be conveniently defined using an XML file that is converted into a MUI GUI by MUI Royale on the fly. GUI design has never been so easy! Of course, new features of MUI 4.0 are also supported.
The highlight of MUI Royale, however, is certainly its inbuilt Hollywood MUI class. This class allows dynamic embedding of complete Hollywood displays into MUI GUIs which can be used to combine the best of both worlds - MUI's proven GUI skills and Hollywood's unequalled multimedia capabilities - into one powerful application, limited by the scope of your creativity only.
MUI Royale requires at least Hollywood 5.2 and is provided free of charge for all users of Hollywood. It is available for AmigaOS 3 (m68k), AmigaOS 4 (PPC), MorphOS (PPC), and AROS (i386).
The package comes with almost 20 example scripts, many of which are direct ports from the MUI 3.8 SDK by Stefan Stuntz, but there are also original developments like demonstrations of how to create a video player using the combined power of Hollywood and MUI. On top of that MUI Royale comes with extensive documentation as a 280 page PDF file which is also available in the HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM formats thanks to the Hollywood documentation system.
All this makes MUI Royale the truly royal MUI experience, carefully crafted for you Kings and Queens of MUI!
