Scalos Update released

Published 13.08.2007 - 11:11 by AndreasM

Scalos released in the Version 41,5 for Classic Amiga, AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS.

  • Bugfix: Information.module(MUI): garbage was displayed instead of device handler ID string
  • Improvement: Thumbnail cache cleanup now always removes entries for non-existing files
  • Improvement: Added menu command to manually initiate thumbnail cache cleanup
  • Information.module(MUI): Added new menu option to get size of drawers always or not at startup. A new "InfoAuGetSize" variable will be created into "env:scalos/" and "envarc:scalos/" to always or never get size at startup. Replaced "information.prefs" by "InfoShowiconPath" variable to show/hide icon path at startup
  • Information.module(MUI): Added new menu option to show or hide the icon path gadget. A new "information.prefs" file will be created into "env:scalos/" and "envarc:scalos/" to always or never show icon path gadget after startup. Removed icon object's selecting codes which allowed the similar "hide/show" function
  • Improvement: Added support for centered and unscaled background images, and for scaled images with correct aspect
  • Improvement: Added support for single-colour or gradient backfill
  • Improvement: path for internal datatypes image cache (previously fixed "t:") is now user-configurable. On startup, all old Scalos files are removed from that location.
  • Improvement: About window no longer starts with empty area
  • Improvement: Added button to temporaily stop scrolling of about window
  • Improvement: amigaiconobj35.datatype can now retrieve ARGB icons if icon.library does support ICONCTRLA_GetARGBImageData[12]
  • Bugfix: Color palette wasn't loaded correctly on Scalos startup
  • Improvement: Added build number to Scalos version information (Splash + about)
  • Bugfix: Delete.module crashed with file names longer than 39 characters
  • Improvement: (IconProperties module) Added SCALOS_BROWSERMODE tooltype support.
  • Improvement: "view by type" now finally works
  • Improvement: "type" column in text windows is now functional
  • Bugfix: installer script failed if languaga setting was different from "English", "Francais", or "Deutsch".
  • Improvement: optimized text window refresh. Now windows is only redrawn if really required.
  • Bugfix: Moving files didn't correctly update "Show All Files" windows
  • Bugfix: Changing truetype icons font didn't have immediate effect (required restart)
  • Improvement: devicefilter.plugin no longer requires Workbench V44+, i.e. filtering of device no also works with OS3.0 and 3.1
  • Improvement: icons won't stay selected after double-click anymore
  • Bugfix: added work-around in defpicture.pvplugin to circumvent a problem with some MorphOS datatypes (e.g. GIF and BMP) that cause the last byte of sac_BitMap to be decremented by 1 when the datatypes object is disposed
  • Bugfix: never try to open SQlite3 thumbnail database if user-configured thumbnail cache database name is empty
  • Bugfix: Added safeguard to avoid crash when OpenDrawerByName() was called with a device name before desktop window was completely initialized. This could happen if insufficient StartDelay_Seconds for persistent window plugin was selected
  • Improvement: font preferences about draw mode and background color for icon text are now taken into account
  • Bugfix: incorrect parsing of Workbench font preferences caused wrong background pen and draw mode to be used
  • Bugfix: added a workaround to defpicture.pvplugin that permits thumbnails to be generated under OS3.0/3.1 and Picasso96
  • Bugfix: Information.module failed to close opened libraries on abort due to missing MCC modules
  • Bugfix: defpicture.pvplugin opened scalosgfx.library twice
  • Bugfix: Dropmenu did ask separately for each one if multiple icons were dropped
  • Bugfix: it was not possible to turn off thumbnails
