software Classic   A-EON Technology acquires Ringhio Messaging System

A-EON Technology acquires Ringhio Messaging System
Cardiff, 21st May 2015

As part of our strategic alliance with ACube srl we are pleased to announce that we have purchased the exclusive rights to the Ringhio messaging system from its developer Max 'm3x' Tretene.

As part of the agreement Max has granted A-EON Technology a worldwide, exclusive, perpetual and irrevocable licenses to develop, publish and distribute Ringhio for the Classic and Next-Generation Amiga operating systems. Also included in the agreement is the exclusive ownership to all source code and binaries and the right to use the Ringhio name in all product marketing, promotion and branding of the Classic AmigaOS and Next-generation AmigaOS versions.

Ringhio is the advanced system wide messaging and notification system developed by Max for AmigaOS 4.1. Ringhio, which has has been in development since 2009, is Italian word for “growl” and in many ways it is similar to the OS X application of the same name. With the Ringhio server running, registered applications can inform the user via notifications displayed in a small pop-up box on the Workbench that a particular event has occurred.

These are sometimes called Ringhio messages because the server provides means through which the messages are communicated visually (in other words, Ringhio handles the actual display of messages sent by the Application Library).

A-EON Technology and ACube Systems strengthen strategic alliance
Cardiff, 21st May 2015

Following a series of meetings held over three days in late April at A-EON Technology's Cardiff headquarters, the two companies agreed a joint development plan to ensure the future of Classic and Next-Generation Amiga hardware and software development. In particular they agreed a new hardware and software development roadmap which both companies will jointly fund and support. Their plans include a series of exciting new hardware and software projects starting with the [I]Minimig Plus[/I], an updated version of ACube System's highly successful Amiga 500 FPGA implementation, based on Dennis van Weeren original design concept.

During the summit the companies also visited Ultra Varisys, the developers behind A-EON Technology's Nemo and Cyrus 64-bit PowerPC motherboards, to discuss future hardware trends and opportunities. Max Tretene, ACube's technical guru commented, "During our meetings we had very good MiniMig Plus prototype ideas about near future hardware and software development, really can't wait to realize all of them." While Enrico Vidale, ACube's business manager added, "This strategic alliance can only be good for the whole Amiga community."

Meanwhile A-EON Technology's Managing Director, Matthew Leaman commented, "The combined technical and financial resources of A-EON & ACube should help secure future success." Trevor Dickinson added, "I'm more optimistic now about the future Amiga scene than I have been for a very long time. All I can say is, bring it on!"

For the VIC-20, we'll try out the 2015 games, Knossoss and Scrap Yard Scrapes. For the Plus/4, we'll try out newly-released PetDraw.

We'll discuss Maker Faire which took place last weekend, the upcoming Commodore Vegas Expo with special guests, Leonard Tramiel, Bil Herd, and Mike Battilana; and the upcoming Amiga 30th Anniversary celebration.

Happy 3-day weekend, C= and Ami aficionados!

The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2+ p.m., Sunday, May 24 at --

Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
Fresno, California

Once again we'll discuss the July 18-19 Commodore Vegas Expo, now with the addition of special guests Leonard Tramiel, son of CBM's Jack Tramiel; and Mike Battilana of Cloanto's C64 Forever and Amiga Forever. Also we'll discuss last weekend's Maker Faire 2015 and the July 25-26 Amiga 30th Anniversary celebration in California. I'll provide a brief report on Commodore and Amiga at Maker Faire, along with pictures and a short video.

For the third month in a row, we continue our celebration of the 30th anniversary of the C128. We'll look at some C128 and C64 video from the classic Computer Chronicles television show. Then we'll look through Basic 8 and IPaint C128 graphics, courtesy of the GEnie Commodore File Library at CBMFiles.com. Not forgetting Geopaint 128 graphics, we'll boot up Geopaint 128 to look at its abilities.

In other business, we'll listen to MP3 music streaming from the MP3@C64 module on the MMC64 cartridge. We'll play with the Amiga CDTV and games Wrath of the Demon, Lemmings, and Defender of the Crown II. Member Vincent will bring his VIC-20, and I'll bring Peter Hanson's expanded Plus/4 again.

Commodore life is good,

Software News   WarpJPEG.datatype 45.12 - now with AltiVec speed boost
  Software News posted by Futaura on 15-May-2015 15:25:45 (888 reads)
A new faster version of WarpJPEG and associated WarpDTPrefs has been released, bringing AltiVec speed optimisations to AmigaOS 4.x and MorphOS users, making JPEG decoding at least 1.5x faster than before, along with several other improvements for WarpOS and AmigaOS 3.x also. You may be aware that I originally wrote the jpeg.datatype supplied with AmigaOS 4.x, but now WarpJPEG outperforms it by some considerable margin.

Full list of changes:

* Added AltiVec speed optimizations for the OS4 and MorphOS versions
making decoding speed of baseline images 1.5x faster on a G4 and
1.9x faster on a PA6T, with fancy upsampling off, on average.
With fancy upsampling on, the AltiVec speed gain is even greater -
1.9x faster on a G4 and 2.3x faster on a PA6T. These optimizations
can be toggled off/on using the new USE_ALTIVEC setting.

* Huffman decoder in PowerPC versions is now 5-10% faster.

* Reintegrated higher quality fancy upsampling smoothing feature from
IJG jpeglib v6b which had not been present since WarpJPEG 45.5 due
to its removal from IJG jpeglib v7 and higher.

* MorphOS and WarpOS versions recompiled with VBCC 0.9d.

* Added new set of benchmarks for OS4 (benchmark updates for other
platforms suspended until my A1200 motherboard has been repaired).
