AFA OS 4.7 release
« on: April 13, 2010, 10:11:36 AM »

AFA OS can install on any existing AOS 3.1 upto 3.9 install and any BBx updates and overwrite no Files of your AOS install.

It offer then many new Features.Because AOS source is not here, there is AROS source use and it is modify to reach best compatibility.

Changes for this version:

  Modified the icon_lib.exe to support Peter Keunecke iconlib V46.4.133 and
  newer, for that i moved the address of the structure up because Peters library
  need 2kB.
  Also the AmigaOS icon.library form the ROM or Libs: is now used to display the
  icons with <=15Bit Workbenchscreens, so you see the icons again.
  And all programs that have built in icons like KingCon work now without extern
  icons, i thank Peter Keunecke for his help.

  Extend intuition_lib.exe to support the following frameiclasses with the
  Zune-Skinsystem:
       FRAME_PROPBORDER (compatible with OS4 API)
       FRAME_PROPKNOB (compatible with OS4 API)
       FRAME_DISPLAYBOX (compatible with OS4 API)
       FRAME_WINDOW
       FRAME_PAGE
       FRAME_GROUP
       FRAME_REQUESTER
       IA_Orientation (compatible with OS4 API) is used to rotate the sliders.
  Bumped revision to 88 to identify this changes.

  Wawa added window gadgets code for screen depths <=15Bit, a known problem is
  that the size gadget is not always correct centered.

  Fixed a redraw problem that happend with FinalData and a gadget text problem
  that happend with FinalWriter. Also fixed a Enforcer Hit that occurs while
  resizing an ASL requester that is partly hidden under 3 or 4 windows and MCP
  "solid window sizing" was active.

  Changed OM_SET of picture_datatype.exe that its always return 0 to prevent a
  double redraw of the image with WarpDatatypes and prevent the crash that
  happend with the PPC versions, thanks go to Oliver Roberts for his help.
  Also bumped Version to 46.9 so WarpDatatypes from Oliver Roberts support the
  alpha channel, because beginning with that versions number the OS4
  picture.datatype fully supports the alpha channel.

  Thomas Klein modified the AfA_OS_Loader to check for existence of the
  afa_system_lib.exe file instead of only the default directory or Assign. This
  helps to prevent a lock of that directory and let AfA_OS start if the default
  directory exists but the files are in the AfA_OS_Libs: Assign. Bumped version
  to 3.0.

  Thomas Klein wrote a new installer script that now full support AmiKit-systems
  and don't overwrite directory icons anymore. It also has a conflict handling
  for AfA_OS updates, installed with the old script on Amikit-systems >=v1.2.0.
  Bumped version to 2.0.

What sort of installation space is needed? I'd like to try this in my "OS in RAD". Need to know how much to increase the ram disk by.

uncompress all is near 4 megaybte in size(skins are largest), but in rad not test if it work.I think you need do 2. reboot, so the AOS ROM libraries pos and neg size is increase to to add new functions

Thank you Bernd, really great work.  I didn't mention to you before, but there is a problem with one of the icons being over-written on Remote Desktop's connection bar, but I will check if it still exists with AFA_OS 4.7.

Keep up the nice work :)

Well, RAM space isn't much of a problem, I have 256MB of it :-)

You mean that the Icon of the AFA_OS_Libs drawer is overwritten when you have change the Icon on your system ?

That should be fixed see in history.

I am trying to keep my cluttered Amiga installation, which has followed me for probably 15 years now from one computer to the next.  If AfA_OS works as described, and I have no reason to doubt it will, I should not ever need to uninstall it.  However, if I needed to do so, it appears from what I read that uninstallation is easy and clean.  Is this a correct assumption?

Very correct mate.
You just delete the folder that you've installed AfA_OS, you also remove the AfA_OS_Libs folder, C:Morelibspace and C:AfA_OS_Loader (along with their declarations from S-S), the TTF Fonts installed and the skins from Presets iirc. That's all :)
