Personal Paint Update
« on: February 09, 2019, 10:08:17 AM »
A new version of Personal Paint for OS3 and OS4 is arriving soon from A-EON Technology.  It will be a free download update available to registered customers who already purchased v7.3 from www.ppaint.com

Changes

The main ppaint executable has been updated and also the personal_req.library

Changes for this build against 7.3.b:

Feature additions:

Add polygon mode to grab brush tool.

Update Itialian translation (contributed Luca Longone)

Bug fixes:

Fix long filename support.

Fix buffer overflows in brush scaling.

Fix buffer overflows in brush shearing.

Extend internal brush structure to include shear status values so that when
shearing brush twice in a row is starts from the current sheared state and
not the original brush state.

Fix incorrect calculation of visble files in builtin requester resulting in an occasional corrupt looking filename at end of file list.
(personal_req.library 1.6)

Thanks to Amiga Developer Team member Andy Broad for his work on this project.

Thanks for the update and information. But my AmiStore purchases still says "version 7.3b"?!?

I have the same problem as cha05e90. AmiStore still shows the current version as 7.3b and I can't get "version 7.3c". Wouldn't it make more sense to make an update actually available before announcing it's available?

That's because, as AmigaKit stated; "A new version of Personal Paint for OS3 and OS4 is arriving soon from A-EON Technology."

I guess that "arriving soon" means two more weeks....  T-shirt sold separately© !  8)

I just ordered the CD version from Amigakit - I assume if it is not he very latest than the update is included, right?

Whoever wrote the news topic "Personal Paint: Update to version 7.3c for registered customers" at amiga-news.de apparently misrepresented amigakit's post here at amiga.org. I should have read Amigakit's post here more closely.

Wow... just read the news article amiga-news.de. They bungled that one pretty good!   :o

That has been a mistake by our translator who created the english version of the news-item. The original german news-item always read "stellt A-EON Technology in Kürze [...] zur Verfügung", i.e. they will "soon" release it. Somehow in the english translation of the news-item it turned into "has released" instead.

I'll correct the english version now and update both news-items with the information that PPaint 7.3c is just in betatesting for now.

Thanks for making me aware of the wrong translation!

Added a couple more fixes.

The special single pixel brush was sticking in MATTE mode when swithing back from a custom brush.  (affects all versions)

Fixed alignment of fill tool pointers, hot spot y offset had got replaced with the x offset! (affects all versions runing on 3.1 upwards)
