Short information about Aros and V4
« on: March 13, 2020, 01:18:23 AM »
Currently Aros is tested and optimized on V4 Standalone. Base is my new distribution that is currently in development. It is creating look and feel of 3.1

short impression:

Network, RTG and SD-Card support work

It is based on magellan and views/plays many formats like mp3, wave, mods and many graphic formats.

It is currently in testing. Reports are here:

I am pretty sure people will like it

it will be available for V4 and UAE. V2 support will hopefully follow (IDE boot problem still there)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQOXbwmbHOQ&feature=youtu.be

it is in italian but you can see how it behaves

This is the official version for V4, I plan to offer versions for HDF and UAE of a plain 3.1 distribution.

A simple lha file to unpack on a bootable filesystem would be nice, with all file flags set correctly etc.

Any chance of ClassAct or Reaction added to Aros?

What is the toolkit anyway? Some sort of gadtools reimplementation?

reaction is copyrighted and belongs to Hyperion so no chance. Perhaps it is possible to add it by copying the reaction files but I never tried it.

it is based on magellan that creates everything independently

the distribution includes all sort of toolkits, of course gadtools and intuition, Zune (MUI reimplementation), MUI 3.8 and others

the specific aros preferences are f.e. Zune

Many MUI-Applications work with Zune but not all. It is possible to change to MUI 3.8 and use it (as long you not need aros preferences). Then f.e. iBrowse works on it.

It also includes packer support, many viewers and players (doubleclick on file), preinstalled whdload and others

would a HDF help?

I could try to create a HDF that boots with 3.1 Roms but it needs some Fastram to work. I can myself only test it on UAE
