A welcome surprise! The traditional end-of-year OS4 update has taken a few years off, but I’m glad to see it back, hopefully with more to come.

This looks to be mostly an under-the-hood update. Not much visible from the user perspective. From the release notes it looks like a lot of P96/CGX calls have been migrated over to graphics.library. That sounds like important work; RTG was always implemented as sort of a kludge, so merging RTG into the native graphics functions feels like a step toward de-kludgeifying it. Well done.

One thing to note for Enhancer Software users, now that there’s some development activity on the official OS4, there are some conflicts with AEON replacement components. In particular, AmiDVD and PartitionWizard are completely nonfunctional and will need to be updated. AEON’s Format froze on me. I haven’t decided yet which versions of other duplicated tools I want to keep, so make sure to do a backup before installing.

Not sure who the individual developers are who worked on this, but thanks!

@Matt_H

I agree with you on the A-EON replacement components.

I had AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition Update 1 + Enhancer Software v1.5

I used AmiDVD to backup my system partition to CD-R as I usually do when I do an upgrade.

Then I simply did an update overtop of my existing system, instead of starting out with a fresh install.

AmiDVD and PartitionWizard are toast.  The update replaced A-EON clock with OS4 clock.

I haven't tried Format yet, but I think I will go back to OS4 Format if my existing one has been clobbered by this update (I can't remember if I installed the A-EON version of Format).

Otherwise, most of my programs seem to be working ok.

Yup. But I was impressed that they failed cleanly with a requester rather than a Guru. :)
Hope to see more error trapping like this in the future.

AEON Format is buggy as hell anyway, wouldn't let that anywhere near my disks. And I prefer the simple Clock to the overengineered AEON one. Which can always be renamed 'Clocker' LOL.

Does this fix the troublesome network stack on the Classic version where some of us (including myself) suffer from? Basically any network session that requires to download more than a few bites simply stalls after a while, making it totally impossible to update software over the air via both the Hyperion AOS and AEON update tools.

@spudje:

What hardware and network adapter are you using?

I don't have this problem. I'm using a CNet card in the CF slot on my A1200/BPPC/BVision, and I regularly download big files (e.g. a number of the release candidates for Update 2 durting alpha and beta testing) from my NAS with SMBFS over the LAN with no problems - other than the low speed of the 10Mb/s card compared to my other machines, of course.

Best regards,

Niels

I'm on a A4k with a PCI network card. I wasn't the only one. But I don't have time now to go look for the thread, on one of the Amiga forums. I'll hope to do that one of the coming days, but most likely after christmas.

I can't test either. Removed the CSPPC.

Update...

Originally, I simply applied the update directly to my existing system ...
AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition Update 1 + Enhancer Software v1.5

Clock and Format reverted back to OS4 versions plus changes to startup-sequence and kicklayout.

After some consideration, I decided to do a clean install to get rid of any zombies that might be lurking in my system.

Quick format of SYS: followed by install of FE followed by FE Update 1 followed by FE Update 2.

I had to update AmiSSL, NetInterface, startup-sequence, user-startup and my AmiDock config.

I will let the system soak for awhile before reintroducing any Enhancer Software.
