A new Hollywood plugin 'Pangomonium' has just been realeased which gives much better control of text (e.g. adding superscripts/subscripts and being able to change font type or size within a text object). Unfortunatley there isn't a verion for AROS. I asked about this and the reply was:

"It's not possible on AROS with their current SDK. It's the same reason why Polybios and the XLSX plugin aren't available on AROS: All those plugins need a compiler capable of creating LoadSeg()able binaries which use C++17 code and exception handling."

So I was just wondered if the required additions were in the development plan for any point?

Many thanks,
Nigel.

Hi,

Looking at available information, C++ 17 was available in GCC since version 7/8. We are now at 6.5.0 so upgrading the compiler is the first requirement.

Timewise, unless someone else steps in the does the work, I don't see upgrading the compiler before end of this year and probably also before end of next year (but planning for next year is not really clear at this point in time).

Many thanks, and I ceratinly appreciate there are far more important things going on with AROS right now; I just thought I'd check in the (unlikely) event the Hollywood authors had missed something,

Cheers,
Nigel.
