PortablE is a recreation of the AmigaE programming language, along with all the improvements I wanted. PortablE works on MorphOS, AROS, OS4, and even Windows to an extent! (It should also work on OS3, but compiling needs a powerful machine like WinUAE.)

This is the first proper new release in 2 years, and has been throughly tested on the latest version of MorphOS, as well as the other supported OSes.

Airsoft Softwair - the hardest work men in code business - are proud to present a brand-new plugin for Hollywood: The HTTP Streamer. This plugin allows Hollywood scripts to open files stored on HTTP servers as if they were local files. Furthermore, the plugin also supports streaming of audio and video files via HTTP if the AVCodec plugin is installed. This finally makes it possible to do video and audio streaming with Hollywood which opens up a whole new range of possibilities for developers! Once this plugin has been activated, all Hollywood functions that deal with files will "automagically" be able to open files from HTTP sources as if they were stored on a local drive. It just doesn't get any more convenient!

The HTTP Streamer uses a sophisticated multi-threaded design for highly efficient HTTP streaming. Each HTTP connection is managed by a dedicated thread for optimal performance. This means that even when dealing with slower connections, Hollywood itself will never become sluggish or anything as all HTTP I/O runs on dedicated threads.

The HTTP Streamer is the second plugin to bear the Powered by Hollywood 6.0 seal of quality as it utilizes the new file adapter plugin interface and the streaming APIs introduced with Hollywood 6.0. The plugin will not work with older versions of Hollywood. That's why we here at Airsoft Softwair say: Life starts at 6.0. The HTTP Streamer is available free of charge and can be downloaded from the official Hollywood portal Versions for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, AROS (i386), Windows, Mac OS X (PowerPC and i386), Linux (PowerPC, i386, ARM) and Android are provided.

Please note that video and audio streaming requires at least version 1.3 of the AVCodec plugin.

The silly season just got serious! Airsoft Softwair is proud to present the ultimate 200+ binaries Super Summer Plugin Bash 2015! This is the biggest plugin update in the history of Hollywood! A grand total of 17 plugins have been updated and are now available in brand new versions. Because Hollywood supports so many different platforms, updating 17 plugins means that almost 250 binaries had to be updated, altogether these are over 50 megabytes of new plugin magic! All Raspberry Pi fans will be very happy to hear that all plugins are available in a Linux ARM flavour now too. Linux ARM support was introduced in Hollywood 6.0.

GL Galore 1.0 released

This is the game changer you've been waiting for! Airsoft Softwair is proud to present the next big thing: GL Galore, the ultimate OpenGL® scripting solution for Hollywood! GL Galore is a plugin for Hollywood that allows you to access the OpenGL 1.1 command set directly from Hollywood. This makes it possible to write scripts that utilize the host system's 3D hardware to create high-performance, butter-smooth 2D and 3D animation that is computed completely in hardware by the GPU of your graphics board. This leads to a huge performance boost over the classic Hollywood graphics API which is mostly implemented in software. Especially systems with slower CPUs will benefit greatly from hardware-accelerated drawing offered by OpenGL.

I have just prepared and uploaded SDL 2 archive to Aminet available to all MorphOS users and developers.

There is no SDL 2 ports available yet and SDL 2 port is minimal with only one sublibrary (sdl2_image.library) available. More libraries are available in the future and sdl2_mixer.library is already under works.

It also lacks 3D support at the moment and few subset APIs.

As soon as the archive is accepted by Aminet maintainers it is available for download.

MorphOS 3.8 or newer is required.

Michael "Clyde Radcliffe" Jurisch's Hollywood add-on for Cubic IDE has been updated to support the full Hollywood 6.0 command set now. Furthermore, there have been some bug fixes and optimizations. The hw4cubic plugin allows you to use Cubic IDE as an IDE for Hollywood. The complete Hollywood command set is imported into Cubic IDE so you'll get syntax highlighting, quick command information, hotkey links to the documentation for command under cursor, function list, direct access to the compiler, auto complete and intellisense functionality and much more.

In addition, a Hollywood 6.0 wordfile for the popular Windows text editor UltraEdit is now also available for download on the official Hollywood portal. This wordfile allows you to conveniently edit Hollywood scripts on Windows using UltraEdit.

All downloads are available from the official Hollywood portal.

Airsoft Softwair is proud to present the immediate availability of the Hollywood 6.0 SDK. This is the first full release of the Hollywood SDK. Whereas previous versions only contained the necessary header files, the full release also contains an extensive documentation covering almost 350 PDF pages. On top of that, the SDK contains well-commented source codes of example plugins and makefiles for all supported platforms. With this release Airsoft Softwair completely exposes all interfaces for the very first time to enable interested parties to create their own plugins and make Hollywood even more powerful! A new SDK section devoted to plugin development has also been added to the official Hollywood forums. Adding the 850 pages of the Hollywood 6.0 manual there are now almost 1200 pages of documentation which make Hollywood one of the biggest Amiga applications ever. Thanks to the Hollywood documentation system all reference manuals are available as AmigaGuide, HTML, CHM and PDF and can also be viewed online. The SDK is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal.

Three years after the release of Hollywood 5 Airsoft Softwair is proud to announce the immediate availability of Hollywood 6: Epiphany. Hollywood 6 is a massive update with a myriad of new functions. The most important new feature is the complete abstraction of the core components display, audio and DOS. These can now be completely replaced by plugins which opens up totally new possibilities. For example, it is possible to replace Hollywood's inbuilt display driver with a custom implementation now. A plugin, which uses this new interface to make OpenGL available to Hollywood, will be released shortly.
