    While we at #AmigaZeux are proud of everything we do, we won't bother you with news items when we do a small update. We will do it here so we won't stand in the way of big news.

    At that, here are two fine updates:

    Dimscreen V1,2
    MouseTracker V1.1

    Hello,

    Would or could #amigazeux team consider to update aminetradio ? The last version has been released in 2005...

    AminetRadio has been looked at recently (especially in regard to squashing bugs and implenting a ShoutCast alternative), but the main problem holding things back is that MUI has diverged significantly. The intention is that it should always be an Amiga app that can run on MorphOS, but this is difficult if you have to support (and betatest) MUI 3.8, MUI 3.9, MUI 3.9 on OS4, MUI4 on MorphOS, MUI4 on OS4 and MUI 4 on 68k.

    This is incredibly tedious to wade through and the author gelb just doesn't have the same time he used to.

    Let's not forget MUI5 on MorphOS, MUI5 on OS4 and MUI5 on 68k ;-)

    I would like to create a Digfilter-DSP Plugin for AminetRadio. But AminetRadio is unfortunately a bit unstable currently.

    AFAIK MUI 3.9 and 4.0 was superseded by 5.0 on all the affected platforms, so testing it with MUI 3.8 on 68k and 5.0 on MOS and OS4 should be enough. I don't think there are many users of 5.0 on 68k, at least not on real machines, as it's quite a resource hog.
    I see the jimmies have been rustled.

    It is nice to support everyone but with all the versions that the “MUI for AmigaOS” people released they made it a mess for all users and developers on all platforms. The only useful solution is to support (only) MUI 3.8 for OS3.x and use MUI5 on MOS (maybe on OS3/4 as well if available, but I read of several incompatibilities on OS3/4). If you read OS4 forums, many users went back to use MUI 3.8 for two reasons: (1) they did not have any benefit from higher versions or (2) the higher versions are too slow for them. And the few people who use higher than 3.8 versions: who should use MUI4 if MUI5 is available for free?

    I doubt that OS4 users went back to m68k-only MUI3.8 when OS4 has contained PPC-native MUI3.9 since OS4.0 Developer Pre-release Update 1. And of course they do have benefit from higher versions than MUI3, like being able to run Odyssey. And I also doubt that MUI4 or MUI5 run too slow on their PPC machines.

    > who should use MUI4 if MUI5 is available for free?

    Indeed, there's no reason to use MUI4 at all, no matter the OS. It's either MUI3 on m68k, or MUI5 on PPC and maybe emulated m68k.

    Have an even better suggestion, why don't you focus exclusively on MorphOS latest mui?

    And another rather important update:

    Screenbar-Plugin V1.1

    Important because it fixes a serious bug that freed hotkeys twice and led to crashes when changing f.e. the MUI theme; kind of a biggie, given MorphOS 3.13 new default theme

    Get it here!

    Is it okay to post bug reports here?

    There is a bug in Testpaint if you have the zoom window open and then zoom-out so that the window is bigger then the zoomed area.
    The cursor isn't under the mouse pointer anymore! The more you zoom-out the greater is the difference.

    Also could you allow Testpaint's window to be bigger then the picture?
    Maybe add some HVSpacing around the draw area?

    Now its only possible to make the window as big as the picture and if the picture is very small (f.e. 20x20) it looks a bit hmm

    Ok, I've fixed this. There is actually another option that goes along fixing the offset problem and would just make the offset problem never happen:
    Prevent the window from becoming bigger than the actual zoomed area and also resize the window when zoomed area becomes smaller. There's an #ifdef in the code now that does just this but it's disabled for now.
    Do you think resizing the window makes any sense? I've found it a bit irritating having the zoom window suddenly resize when playing around with the mouse wheel. But from GUI perspective it makes sense.

    I've added spacing around the drawing area, so it's centered now. Instead of centering the paint object it could just sit in left/top corner of the area and have the right/bottom area expand. What do you think?

    I've uploaded a beta version with the changes to http://ultragelb.com/beta/Screenshot_sbar.lha
