Their is 4.0, copyrighted 2006 Stefan Stunz.
The only public stable (non-beta) version of MUI that existed back in 2006 was MUI 3. A few (2?) public betas of MUI 4 was released after that over a few years before it formally arived in MorphOS 2.0 in mid-2008.
That the info screen of the OS4 "MUI4" says:
(C) 1992-2006 Stefan Stuntz
(C) 2006-2013 Thore Böckelmann, Jens Maus
...means that this is *NOT* the MUI4 that Stefan Stuntz spent a few years developing post 2006, it's something else, developed by some others. And to confirm this, itix heard
from an OS4 beta tester that this is something Hyperion built themselves on top of the MUI3.9 they bundle with OS4.Quote:
I'd also say that the internals of MUI4, which were completely and heavily rewritten, are completely different for this release.
Of course, they are simply not there, since the internals in OS4 "MUI4" is MUI3.9!Quote:
As far as I can tell, these are most of the functionalities of MUI4 needed for Odyssey and MPlayer built on top of MUI 3.9.
Indeed, that seems exactly how this is. It's MUI 3.9 with selected custom written third party classes added, and a "MUI4" sticker slapped on. A "bastard fork", that will (as itix says
) always be a little left behind because Hyperion must wait new MorphOS SDK to be released in order to implement changes to their development tree.
MorphOS is Amiga done right!
MorphOS NG will be AROS done right!
