Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are proud to announce the immediate availability of version 2.0 of the XML plugin for Hollywood. This plugin, previously known as XML Parser, was one of the first Hollywood plugins and has now received a major update with many new features.

The biggest new feature in version 2.0 of the Hollywood XML plugin is that you can now serialize Hollywood tables to XML documents with just a single function call. In the same way you can also deserialize XML documents to Hollywood tables with just a single function call. This is made possible by Hollywood 9's new serialization plugin interface which is why the XML plugin now requires at least Hollywood 9.0. Further new features include lots of new callbacks to handle advanced XML features like namespaces, entities, attlists, and more. Finally, the XML plugin now includes a comprehensive documentation that describes all features and contains many examples.

The plugin is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood's cross-platform plugin systemversions for AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, MorphOS, WarpOS, AROS (x86), Linux (arm, ppc, x86, x64), macOS (ppc, x86, x64), Windows (x86, x64), Android and iOS are provided. Note that Hollywood 9 is strictly required by the XML plugin 2.0.

So from December 1st until Christmas in sometimes shorter, sometimes longer texts you will read about their Amiga beginnings, first successes and experiences from their creative wealth and little incidents to smile or even to think about. And of course also one, maybe two ;) MorphOS developers are involved. A big thank you to all who participated!

Hollywood 20th anniversary: XLSX plugin released

On November 4th 2002, Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, released Hollywood 1.0 for 68k AmigaOS. Originally advertised as a multimedia authoring solution, nobody would have expected back then that this software would turn into a cross-platform programming language for lots of platforms with dozens of plugins for all kinds of tasks. Now, 20 years later, Hollywood is still going strong, receives regular updates and new plugins, and is used by many people around the globe. All of this would not have been possible without the continued support of many Hollywood enthusiasts in the past 20 years. Only the positive feedback we received right from the start made us continue developing Hollywood into what it is today.

As a little "thank you", we proudly present yet another plugin for Hollywood: XLSX. The XLSX plugin makes it possible to conveniently read and write XLSX documents from Hollywood scripts. It offers a wide variety of functions to set and get cell values, cell types, cell formulas, document/worksheet properties and several other attributes. It also offers an iterator function for a high performance iteration of a large number of cells.
