    Superb. This should come in handy for RNOPublisher :-)

    Btw, what does "m881" in "AmigaOS3 (m68k, m881)" mean? Is it the 68881 FPU?

    Actually not, I think it only allows loading PDF pages as brushes or animations in Designer now, but it's still handling them as full pages that aren't editable. You get a PDF page as a single graphic object there, not as separate text/graphics/whatever objects.

    It means 68881 compatible FPU, which on classic Amiga is traditionally 68881/2 or 68040/68060.

    Oh drat. Thanks for clarification.

    Thanks for confirmation. I now realize that all Polybios press releases so far have contained that term but I somehow managed to not notice it before :-)
