Whatever happened to SASG?
« on: October 26, 2002, 03:20:31 PM »
Just for a bit of nostalgia, I visited the SASG website today. It was a bit sad to see it hadn't been updated since 1998. I suppose Stefan Stunz and Martin Huttenloher might have moved on to better things, but it would be really good if somebody could take on the SASG since MUI is such an Amiga institution.

Well MUI has been further developed, ported to C (from 68k-asm) and
pushed to version 4 by Ralph Schmidt for use with MorphOS.

"Thanks" to Strunzi's non-exclusive licencing these changes will
also be available for OS4 if and when Hyperion manages to compile
them. (no flame-bait, just factual as it is not running yet (AFAIK))
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

When was MUI ever written in assembler? :)  I don't have any inside line on the sources but the API has always been C based.

You're thinking of the modifications needed to produce portable (PowerPC) binaries.

@nOw2

The MUI-core was allways written in asm for performance reasons,
and only the high-level parts were written in C.
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.

@Elekto
No you got that wrong as every Kindergarten-kid knows that
Cobol,BCPL and Fotran_77 are the right answers.

I have a gut feeling OS4 will be finished faster than you expect. Only a gut feeling... but I have a BIG gut;-)
Someone has to state the obvious and that someone is me!
