Airsoft Softwair has just released the manual for the brand-new Hollywood Designer 5.0. Hollywood Designer 5.0 is a multimedia authoring system that runs on top of Hollywood and can be used to create all sorts of multimedia-based applications, for example presentations, slide shows, games, and applications. After 8 years of development, version 5.0 was released a few weeks ago.

The full manual of Hollywood Designer 5.0 is now available for everybody to read on the official Hollywood portal in both HTML and PDF versions. Both documents contain lots of screenshots to illustrate the use of Hollywood Designer 5.0 better. It also contains a detailed changelog of what has changed between Designer 4.0 (2012) and Designer 5.0 (2020).

Finally, the full manual of Hollywood Designer 5.0 is also available in German now thanks to the incredible translation efforts by Dominic Widmer and Helmut Haake. Besides HTML and PDF versions there is also a zip archive you can download which contains the manual as an AmigaGuide document that can be used as a drop-in replacement so that Hollywood Designer's live help system is in German too. The German version is available in the German section of the official Hollywood portal.

A blast from the past! Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are proud to present the XMP plugin for Hollywood. Once this plugin is installed, Hollywood will "automagically" be able to play almost all flavours of Amiga & PC tracker module formats. All formats that are supported by the Extended Module Player library (XMP) by Claudio Matsuoka and Hipolito Carraro Jr can now be played with Hollywood! For example FastTracker II, ScreamTracker, OctaMED, The Player 4/5/6, NoisePacker, ProRunner, Oktalyzer, Impulse Tracker, Ultra Tracker, Ice Tracker, Liquid Tracker, Quadra Composer, and many more.

Additionally, a demo applet which demonstrates the playback of an OctaMED file is included. This applet can also be run using the freely available Hollywood Player so people who don't own the full version of Hollywood can check it out as well.

The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the release of the MorphOS Software Development Kit 3.14 (October 2019).

Our new software development kit advances a number of key technologies enabled by updates to the latest binutils 2.32, ports of the most recent versions of the GCC7, GCC8 and GCC9 compilers as well as a newer perl.

The threading models in GCC5 and up were changed to posix, enabling better libstdc++ compatibility in std::thread, etc thanks to the new ports of libpth and libpthread. A switch to the DWARF2 Exception Handling Model improves performance of C++ code of up to 30 percent. Objective-C ARC is now supported on MorphOS thanks to the introduction of the ObjFW runtime and other advances in compiler ports.

The new SDK requires MorphOS 3.12 and about 3GB of free disk space and can be found in our files section. As always, a separate source package is available for download as well.
