BetterWB 3.2 released
« on: December 16, 2013, 07:50:26 AM »
BetterWB 3.2 16-DEC-2013

This is a new version of BetterWB workbench pack, that aims to be an enhancement, an updated extension to AmigaOS 3.1, without all those hardware requirement typically associated with these kind of packs. It is indeed a better 3.1 than 3.1 itself!

BetterWB works on any Amiga. It installs on top of a clean AmigaOS 3.1 installation. It is distributed as a set of floppy images and occupies about 8MB of harddrive space.

Changes since last version:

-DosPrefs is a commodity that replaces both Clicknot and Unixdirs3 and adds wildcard support
-A powerful system Trashcan is now included as a commodity
-MagicMenu has now a preferences program and is configured to use less resources
-boards.library got updated to its last incarnation
-A bugfixed requestchoice command fixes 3 bugs that were previously available
-Tooltype tweaking on some commodities for more comfortable use
-Workaround for an icon.library bug regarding internal deficons
-Format GUI now works without problems
-Plus Many more fixes and minor enhancements

You can download BetterWB from its homepage at:

Yes, it is not the best way, but you can.
I always recommend a clean install.

Anyway, backup your startup-sequence, install BetterWB 3.2 and then integrate the few different lines from the new BetterWB startup-sequence into the one you backed up. And after that put back your old modified startup-sequence in action.

So I'm in the process of tooling up my A4000 68060 with CVision 64 (CGX 4 update 6).

I've installed OS 3.9, installed Boing Bag 1,2,3, and 4.

Does Better WB 3.2 offer anything to me and will it break anything if i install it?
