According to a statement, the due date (May 31st) cannot be achieved. So far $202 has been donated to the bounty. Krzysztof 'deadwood' Śmiechowicz has offered to double each donation until $500 has been reached.

AROS Vision 2.9.3 RTGPrint

AROS

avisionMajor changes in version 2.9.3 in Olaf Schönweiß's AROS/68k distribution Aros Vision RTG are that MESA/Gallium is activated by default and that it uses Zune instead of MUI (MUI can be activated if necessary).

MESA/Gallum needs 256 MB RAM, works only with more than 16 Bit colour depth. It is still slow but it works. The maintainer hopes this will motivate 68k developers to help with further work. Since Zune is now used as standard, more and more AROS applications can be integrated in future.

Changes:

  • All system files updated
  • Zune and MESA/Gallium activated
  • Netsurf updated (much faster)
  • Themes added
  • Development (GCC) updated
  • Most files from contrib/ports (Aros) integrated
  • ZuneView added
  • OWB (old AROS port) works again
  • FlashMandelNG added
  • Free Pascal updated (to version 3.1)
  • AmiBlitz updated (newest snapshot)
  • WHDLoad updated
