Another update to Odyssey 1.25 betaPrint


owbKrzysztof 'Deadwood' Śmiechowicz has released an update of Odyssey 1.25 beta with the following changes:

  • Fixed messages console to display messages
  • Made aligned allocation not take additional memory
  • Made memory allocator work better with fragmented memory
  • Fixed major memory leak where Frames were not released together with their JS data - memory no longer continously consumed while browsing
  • Fixed a number of small memory leaks
  • Implemented a more agreesive memory freeing strategy which keeps allocated memory as low as possible

Port Python 2.7 core to AROSPrint


p2pPorting it to AROS not only brings a lot of software, but it allows to quickly create new ones too, and to better manage the system, since Python versatility goes from fast GUI applications prototyping to system administration, from testing to astronomical big data analysis, and so on. Python can be considered the Swiss knife of computer science.

Since the big effort required for the port, this bounty is the first of a series of 5 that will bring this language/platform to AROS. In fact, the port is ideally split in the following 5 parts:

  • Python 2.7 core;
  • PyZune (a complete Python binding for the Zune library);
  • Python 2.7 external libs (bzip2, Berkeley db, openssl, sqlite3);
  • Python 2.7 external libs (tcl, tk). This is optional or with a very low priority, since Tcl/Tk is used to build application with GUI, but for AROS the priority is making the same, albeit using Zune as natural and native replacement;
  • Python 3.5.


Odyssey Web Browser Public Source Code RepositoryPrint


owbI would like to invite interested developers from all platforms to join the Odyssey Web Browser development.

The repository is public, available to everyone and located on GitHub:

The repository contains the latest version of Odyssey (1.25) which:

  • is a continuation of Fab's 1.24 code base
  • is rebased directly on WebKit engine (no longer uses Orygin proxy layer that 1.24 used) for easier integration of new engine versions
  • uses WebKit revision 187682 (end of July version)
  • is rebuilt to support multi-platform development in build configuration and source code

If you are interested in developing a feature in Odyssey, no matter how small, or fixing a bug, no matter how trivial, contact me via email at Don't worry - everybody had to start somewhere! I will help you understand the code base, build process and development approach.

Please spread the news!

PortablE r6 beta releasedPrint

PortablE is a recreation of the AmigaE programming language, along with all the improvements I wanted. PortablE works on AROS, MOS, 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 AROS x86 (Icaros Desktop Live), and the other supported OSes too.

Renaming picture files: Exutil 0.4 (AmigaOS 3/4, MorphOS, AROS)Print


The MUI-based Exutil which was written with Hollywood is a small utility to batch rename pictures by date sorted names based on Exif date information or by file's date.
As of yet this is a very simple tool - in future more functions may be added.

Changes in version 0.4:

  • new: original file name extension gets conserved
  • all kind of files can get renamed now
  • new: file time optionally part of the new name
  • new: content of entire drawers can get renamed



Wings Remastered Edition (AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, AROS)Print


WingsWhile "Wings Remastered Edition" can be purchased at Steam for 15 Euro, the Amiga port costs 55 US-Dollar. But for this money, the game will be delivered in a big box including a printed manual ad a poster.

Ports for AmigaOS 4 with Warp 3D, AmigaOS 4 with RadeonHD-Compositing (for users without 3D-driver), MorphOS and AROS are available. Some graphics bugs which Müßener reduces to bugs in the graphic boards are already known:

  • AmigaOS 4: Warp3D creates some missing polygons in the corner of the screen
  • AmigaOS 4: Compositing should not be used with SouthernIsland and R200 chipsets due to heavy graphics bugs
  • MorphOS: on some systems (e.g. Powerbook Radeon 9700) the lightning of the 3D models does not properly work; the objects appear too dark, the fog has the wrong colour
