MorphOS : : Public Release of MorphOS 3.14
Posted By: ASiegel. on 2020/10/4 14:10:36
MorphOS Version 3.14

The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the immediate availability of MorphOS 3.14. While mostly a maintenance and stability release, this update also brings multiple technological improvements in the kernel. Out of these, the most notable are TLS support in exec.library, updates to the Netstack and ixemul.library.

We would also like to thank all of our translators and beta testers for stepping up their efforts in the weeks leading up to this release. This update ships with over 230 new and more than a 100 improved translation files.

We strongly urge new users to carefully read our installation and troubleshooting guides before they attempt to install MorphOS for the first time. Existing users can upgrade via the familiar procedure but are encouraged to read the guides as well. MorphOS 3.14 is available for download in our files section.

    Thanks for this update...

    BSzilli : I confirm for tinygl, total disappointment for the SDL2 project, sorry this is a hot reaction.)

    Yea, sorry, it didn't make it into the release (yet) as it was still considered a temporary fix to address the SDL2 issues.
    I'll revisit it for 3.15 and hopefully have some time to check the SDL2 code for a proper fix then as well.

    No worries, I'm glad it will make it into MorphOS eventually.

    A-EON AmigaOne X5000 Update Instructions

    You will need a 500MB or larger USB disk

    Prepare the USB Disk

    Copy the image to a USB disk

    Linux Instructions

    With your system powered on, insert a USB disk that is at least 500MB into a USB port
    Determine the /dev path to your USB disk using one of the below methods:
    - In a terminal as su or sudo, enter "fdisk -l"
    - In a terminal as su or sudo, enter "parted -l"
    - Check the GParted menu in the upper-right corner

    These instructions assume the /dev path to your USB disk is /dev/sdz; however, your actual /dev path is likely to be different - use the actual /dev path to your USB disk

    In a terminal as su or sudo, enter the below command:

    Code:
    dd if=/path/to/morphos-3.14.hdimg of=/dev/sdz


    where "/dev/sdz" is the /dev path to your USB disk

    NOTE: Do not attempt to copy the image to a specific partition - you need to enter the /dev path to the disk, not to a partition (use "/dev/sdz", not "/dev/sdz2")

    Mac Instructions

    With your system powered on, insert a USB disk that is at least 500MB into a USB port

    Open the Terminal app in Applications > Utilities
    Determine the /dev path to your USB disk by entering the below command:

    Code:
    diskutil list


    These instructions assume the /dev path to your USB disk is /dev/disk9; however, your actual /dev path is likely to be different - use the actual /dev path to your USB disk

    Enter the below command:

    Code:
    dd if=/path/to/morphos-3.14.hdimg of=/dev/disk9


    where "/dev/disk9" is the /dev path to your USB disk

    Windows Instructions

    With your system powered on, insert a USB disk that is at least 500MB into a USB port.
    Download "USB Image Tool" from alexpage.de

    Open USB Image Tool

    On the left panel, select your USB disk
    Click the "Restore" button and select the MorphOS disk image


    Boot to MorphOS

    Begin with your A-EON AmigaOne X5000 system powered down and insert the USB disk into a USB port - remove any other USB disks that are plugged in.

    Power on your system and press ESC when the boot animation starts to load the U-Boot menu.

    Choose "Command Line" from the U-Boot menu

    Type the following commands:

    Code:
    usb reset

    Code:
    bootmorphos


    After selecting the language and keymap please select "Installation ..."

    Choose "Update Installation"

    Choose the MorphOS volume and the button "Update".

    @xeno74:

    You can write the update image from MorphOS directly, no need to boot into another OS.

    * Decompress the image using: xzdec morphos-3.14.hdimg.xz >morphos-3.14.hdimg
    * Write to your USB stick using: copy direct morphos-3.14.hdimg RAWDisk:Devices/usbscsi.device/0/rawdisk
    * When you get the RAWDisk warning window, click "Continue". Clicking "Abort" aborts the operation.

    Of course make sure you only have the target disk attached as USB storage device. If not, you might need to adjust the number after the usbscsi.device in the rawdisk path from 0 to something else.

    (This should actually work for any platform, where you can boot the hdimg. I used it to update my Efika.)

    Do you know of any way to get a X5000 to boot with dual graphics cards? With AOS4 development effectively dead I'd like to start using MorphOS more, but like most AOS4 users have only Southern Islands cards around. I can buy an older card that MorphOS supports, but then I lose 3D capability for when I need to boot in AOS4.

    Any ideas?

    I have a good one: Hire Hans de Ruiter to write an AmigaOS4 3D driver for Radeon X1950 cards. This way AmigaOS/MorphOS users could use the same card on their machines.
    Or we could do it the other way - find a willing developer to write Southern Islands drivers for MorphOS and start a bounty.

    What do you think?

    So the net of that thread is that while dual graphics cards are possible, MorphOS won't boot. Did I get that correct?

    I'd chip in a few bucks for that!

    Zoom slider on Ambient in conjunction with toolbar functionality has been fixed :)

    On the other hand, picshow has stopped working after upgrade (jpeg freeze on system). Need some more testing about it though, before I conclude what's the exact behavior that causes the problem.

    Is it possible to release the updated tinygl as temporary hotfix pls? There is a dying need for opengl hw accel. on SDL2 which can't wait a year or so before the new OS release. Basically, it prevents us from enjoying all these cool new gaming ports that we currently have :/

    What makes you think you will have to wait a full year for another update? You have already received two MorphOS updates this year.

    In the Changelog there are some fixes of the Rtl8168 network driver mentioned. Does this mean its' issues with Gigabit Network Switches are fixed?

    Updated to MorphOS v3.14 yesterday . . all went smoothly (almost needless to say), but seemed to be quite a lot more data to be written than with previous releases.

    MorphOS v3.14 has built on the previous work that our great development team have seemingly "worked their socks off" to bring us, so there's even more to be content and happy with. Not much actually "New" (aside from Scout - another jacadcaps implementation) in there, but lots of work/fixes all the same, so thanks to the whole MorphOS Development team - so maybe there's time for a short period of relaxation, some R&R . . . . . Phew !! . . . Oh Yeah, that feels good baby !![/b]

    Right, that's enough . . . back to the grindstone !! 8-D

    The ICU (internationalization support) files take most of the additional space. These are required by Wayfarer.

    @ jacadcaps - I thought it just might have been as a result of some system requirements that Wayfarer might need as not much else seemed to have been changed in the usual way that MorphOS operates, apart from fixes that seem to make up the majority of work in v3.14.

    I noticed that quite a lot of text is rendered in white, and that's a nuisance. I changed some of the text to black for Wayfarer by amending MUI text options - MUI > Windows > Text changed to Black from White, but I still get some requesters rendering text as White, which is barely viewable on a light grey background in requesters, which seems to have got implemented in the MorphOS release itself - tell me if I'm wrong, and where to change it to suit me to be Black text? As it's really annoying.

    [EDIT] Additionally, when using OWB v1.25 or v1.26, now that I've installed v3.14, when it generates an error requester, and even in the Downloads window it now also displayed "ghosted" the menus that would be displayed in the main window, such as, Project, Edit, View, etc. - so what has changed in the OWB background that has instigated this reaction when error requesters/Download windows, etc. are created within OWB? :-?

    As it never happened previously!

    These guys are still at it. Very impressive.

    I acquired an A4kT and have been having fun playing with it. Fired up my Powerbook G4 and..lol..Its much more useable. I mean its fun playing with the A4kT, getting it online with Roadshow, buying IBrowse, getting Samba working but MorphOS is where its at.


    EDIT:
    where is the changelog?

    As always, thank you!

    Interesting reading the changelog. I dont know if its just me but *I THINK* this handles app crashes better. Meaning, I was messing around with ADFs that have original Amiga software and just to play around I'd run it. Sometimes when software crashes it seems as though it confines the error and my system continues to chug along without issue. I wish I had a better example but both systems (G5 and Powerbook) are both on 3.14.

    That's what the release notes say:

    "TLS API [...] is used by libpthread and gcc threading"

    Whatever this means in particular ;-)
