X-bEnCh 0.91F is available ! :cool:

As always you can download it on: http://www.jimneray.com

This is the first stable release of X-bEnCh. :banana:

Hope you'll like it. ;)

See the complete History.txt in the archive for more info.

With 272 colors on screen with AGA (128 with OCS/ECS), this Frontend can autoscan your hard-drive to find all your whdload games or your .exe and organize them in launching listings. X-bEnCh can also manage manuals listings and have an internal script system, the X-bEnCh Scripts (For non whdload games for exemple). It require very few ressouces and is compatible with all Amiga setups. X-bEnCh also have an integrated CLI fully compatible with the Workbench CLI features and a Files/Dirs Manager (X-pl0rEr).

Actual features list:
- Up to 272 colors on screen with AGA (128 colors on screen for OCS/ECS)

- Unlimited subdir level scan

- Integrated cLi 100% Amiga cli compatible
- System friendly setup panel
- Dedicated installer for an easy installation
- Many more will come in the nexts releases.

Please note that from this version registered users will have access to internal versions of xbench. This does not mean that unregistered users will have access to fewer public release but registered users will have access to the internal versions that were not previously released (For testing purpose only cause those unpublished versions are often still heavily bugged). This way of proceeding will most certainly avoid some errors from my part that made ​​some previous updates unusable due to lack of testing.

Excellent, must try it out ! I still have an older version installed but it was doing the job...
thanks for this usefull tool and I consider making a review for the french fanzine Amigapower (the drawback is that there so many versions released that the moment I am doing the review and the moment the fanzine is released, it will be obsolete !).

BTW how do I register ? never heard about registration since today...

All is explained in the xbench.guide it's really easy.
Please note that xbench is donationware not shareware so the unregistered users doesn't have special limitation except a screen at startup who's encouraging to get a key. ;)
