  From  CygnusED over at amigans.net:


After a long development break, new versions of the basic packages for the Unix environment "AmiCygnix" were released. In the main, bugs have been fixed which prevented the proper function of the X server on new Amiga systems.



New in AmiCygnix-Base:

* All display drivers and the X server binary were revised to fix the following problems:

 - With newer graphics cards like the Radeon HD 7xxx the colours of the display were wrong. Fixed with the standard drivers and the rest for the most part.
  - Since AmigaOS 4.1 final Update 1 it came to program crashes, if the graphic driver picasso96clonewbdb was used. Is fixed now.

* The display driver picasso96clonewbdb can now also open 32 bit screens internally, however, the data is still processed in 16 bits.

* The print command "lpr" now supports the printout via Turboprint whereby the print quality is increased.

* Updated SSL support over OpenSSL and GnuTLS. The included Trusted Certificates have been updated.

* Many more improvements and bug fixes.

New in AmiCygnix-Tools:

* The browser NetSurf has been relinked with OpenSSl 1.01o. Many SSL keyed pages could not be opened anymore. The problem is now largely eliminated.

* Current versions of the image viewer GPicView and the GTK+ 2.0 toolkit adjuster LXAppearance.

Couple of questions - can the X server be used to host applications running on a remote Linux machine?

What window manager do you use to get the Amiga look and feel? AmiWM?

@ NinjaCyborg
no idea about remote Linux with AmiCygnix but you could check out the support thread over at amigans.net http://www.amigans.net/modules/xforum/viewforum.php?forum=33&type=0&mode=0&since=0&start=0&sortorder=DESC&sortname=f.forum_order
also I personally don't use any windows manager as I'm happy with the standard one. With this latest version we have Skype working & maybe just maybe (nothing confirmed yet) a new Webkit that will give us FireFox which will be a blessing since Timberwolf stopped working  for me since Update 1 came out for FE

Thanks @smf but does that mean you could run Firefox for example, by running Firefox on the linux host redirected to the X server on OS4?

In principle: Yes. But don't expect it to be very performant.

I have the same machine and the same OS, but here Timberwolf works (with pre-requisites, though...).
