In version 2.1 of Icaros Desktop, the author Paolo Besser has fixed several bugs and added new versions of applications - e.g. a new version of the web browser Odyssey which now supports HTML-5-videos.
Drivers for NTFS-3G and exFAT partitions have been completed as well. Additionally it is possible to access (read) Google-Drive accounts. Icaros Desktop adds a preference programm written in Lua for configuring it in a more comfortable way (screenshot).
Krzysztof 'Deadwood' Śmiechowicz' latest beta update of Odyssey allows loading Google-spreadsheet and working with other applications (Draw, Drive etc.). Support for WebWorker was re-enabled and the internal threading support was changed to AROS POSIX-threads library. The diskcache also works properly.

Krzysztof 'Deadwood' Śmiechowicz has released an update of Odyssey 1.25 beta with the following changes:
Porting 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:
I 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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 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.
