Ignition Spreadsheet
« on: November 02, 2006, 09:52:49 PM »
I've been lamenting the lack of good office software for the Amiga and MorhpOS....not to mention a modern browser, but that's another story.  I've come across the spreadsheet called Ignition and it sounds very modern and functional.  Has anyone tried that beta who would be willing to post a couple of screen shots and a few comments?  I'd do it myself but I'm still awaiting the arrival of my Peg II system.

Here's a download link:  http://www.pinc-software.de/files/ignition-1.0beta1.lha

Achim Pankalla feels confident enough to finally call this 1.0 release done! The following changes have been made among others:

New look & feel.
Refinement and extensions of the ARexx interface.
Extra version with first adaptions for Reaction by Javier.
Additions to the DB commands.
Improvements to the dialogs for translators.
Reworked context help manuals.
Fixed many bugs in settings menu, functions, gtdrag library, and more.
Please test and report any errors to the author. The english translation seem to be a little weird, but this will probably be fixed in the near future!

If you have suggestions or want to say thanks then do that as well. ;)

AmigaOS 4: Spreadsheet ignitionOS4 1.00
Achim Pankalla wrote: Under the title link version 1.00 of the spreadsheet "ignitionOS4" is available on the Sourceforge website. For more than ten years ignition has been open source and this is the sixth version of the AmigaOS-4 port.

This version no longer is calleds "beta" although it is not completely bug-free and a Grim Reaper might happen. Despite this many functions have been added and about 100 bugs/problems have been removed.

By releasing this version a new user-interface and menu layout has been introduced providing a modern look and of course meeting suggestions of the users. For example there now is an export/import menu and the dialog and the procedure of loading and saving was simpliefied. Of course still the user can create his own user-interface. The new icons were added as well.

This version has focused on the ARexx and DB functions. Many bugs have been fixed and some new functions added. Many thanks to Helmut Haake for revising the manual which now can be opened on every menu item, dialog and GUI element by using the Help key. For using the ODS import/export you still have to separately install the ign-addon-ods.

Many thanks also to all beta testers, bug reportes, translators and supporters! You can get further information in the ignitionOS4 forum on os4welt.de - or you can write an e-mail, also for providing any feedback. (snx) (Translation: dr)
