PortablE r4 released (now runs on Windows)
« on: May 29, 2009, 09:39:01 PM »

A new version of PortablE has been released.  PortablE is an AmigaE compiler, written from scratch in E, and able to compile itself.  It supports Windows, Amiga OS3, OS4, AROS & MorphOS.

The main changes for this release are:
* PortablE now has basic support for Windows, along with some standard
portable modules which allow the same program to run unchanged on
Windows & Amiga. Documentation & several examples are provided.

* PortablE now comes with an installer (for all supported platforms).

* The PEGCC program runs both PortablE and G++ (GCC) for you, thus
producing an executable directly from E code.

* PortablE now runs up to twice as fast.
* Added MUI support for AROS.
* Fixed modules to work with Amiga OS4's latest SDK.
* FastNew() & NEW are now thread safe.
* Fixed FastNew() & NEW, which were previously un-aligned & so could
cause crashes under certain circmstances.
* OpenLibrary() could a crash on Amiga OS4. Really fixed this time!
* Numerous other improvements, changes & bug fixes.

If anyone downloaded PortablE before this message was posted, I recommend downloading it again, due to a couple of small oversights being fixed.
