Posted By: softwarefailure. on 2017/4/2 16:01:14
Airsoft Softwair is proud to announce the immediate availability of many plugins for the x86_64 architecture. Since Hollywood 7.0: Eternity now has support for 64-bit CPUs the plugins also had to be updated for the new architecture.

First of all,, the following plugins are now available in new versions for all platforms (including MorphOS):
- ahx.hwp 1.2
- avcodec.hwp 1.4
- httpstreamer.hwp 1.1
- sqlite3.hwp 1.2

Specifically for use on x86_64 CPUs, the following plugins have now been updated with 64-bit versions on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux:

- ahx.hwp
- aiff.hwp
- apng.hwp
- avcodec.hwp
- digibooster.hwp
- flic.anim
- httpstreamer.hwp
- jpeg2000.hwp
- moviesetter.hwp
- oggtheora.hwp
- oggvorbis.hwp
- pcx.hwp
- sqlite3.hwp
- svgimage.hwp
- tiff.hwp
- vectorgraphics.hwp
- xmlparser.hwp
- yafa.hwp

Finally, the Android binaries of all plugins have been updated. They now no longer have text relocations which makes their binaries smaller and also avoids a warning to the debug port on Android devices.

You can download the plugins from the official Hollywood portal at Thanks to Hollywood's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3 (Classic), AmigaOS3 (FPU), AmigaOS4, MorphOS, WarpOS, AROS (x86), Linux (PowerPC), Linux (x86), Linux (x64), Linux (arm), Mac OS (PowerPC), Mac OS (x86), Mac OS (x64), Windows (x86), Windows (x64) and Google's Android platform (arm) are provided.

This release was brought to you by Airsoft Softwair - the hardest working men in code business.

    Does using any 64bit plug-ins in your Hollywood program, when writing programs from a 64bit Windows, or Linux, or MacOSX environment, prevent the resulting program from working properly when the same code is compiled for use on any of the supported 32bit platforms, or are all of the existing 64bit plug-ins also available in 32bit versions, so that the compiling of the code for any of the 32bit platforms works transparently and without any problems?

    In simpler terms, are there any 64bit plug-ins that are not also available as 32bit plug-ins?

    In my limited knowledge of programming, I'm guessing that the 64bit plug-ins are just faster than their 32bit versions, when used on a 64bit OS.
