Activated the localization for MUIMapparium currently only for english and german (of course ;-)) implemented also the local library unit for AmigaOS4 so localization is available on all platforms.
I also activated the AREXX interface currently only two commands are implemented: goto lat lon [zoom] to jump to a position and addwaypoint lat lon “Name” to create a waypoint. The Portname is the same as for Mapparium an example script can be found in rexx folder. The AREXX port does not work for AROS, Zune has no AREXX support currently.
I tried to compile it on AROS64 sadly the program did not work, it just freeze. Little bit strange sometimes it start but crash directly. I tried some other programs on AROS64 and they work rather nicely so why MUIMapparium not. The difference was easy it uses threads, finally I found the solution, the Critical Sections in FreePascal are mapped to SignalSemaphores of Amiga. In contrast to other OS the SignalSemaphores are not just simple pointers but a complicated structure. The given size there was ok for 32 bit Systems but for 64 bit the structure is much bigger. I included it for that release maybe someone want to try it 😉
Reminder you can use the Example GPX file from the Mapparium page also.
MUIMapparium 0.3 on AROS x64
EdiSyn for ARM-AROS
After the compilation problems are solved, it is also possible to compile and use EdiSyn (finally a good editor in ARM-AROS :-P).
So here it is, same case as for Mapparium, it’s a special version for ARM-AROS (0.55). This new Version has already some advanced features like reload last open files (also remember the line the cursor is placed)
Download at EdiSyn Page
EdiSyn 0.55 ARM-AROS
Mapparium 0.7 ARM-AROS special Release
I found the reason Mapparium, Edisyn and some other application crashed. All things have to be compiled with “-CaEABIHF” to make sure all sources use the same way to transfer floating point values. The -dFPC_ARMHF is only needed by the compiler, the ABI has to set for every other compilation, so I added them also to the fpc.cfg, fp.cfg.
I created Mapparium Release, with the latest not official Release 0.7 which already has some basic GPS Support (position only) and the Zoom and Find me Buttons are moved into a small menu inside the map (like google maps and open streetmap webpage also have). The menu can be hidden if this disturbs someone 😉
Releases for all the other Platforms will need more time.

Mapparium 0.7 on RasPi AROS
ZuPa, ZuPa, ZuPaPlayaaaahhh
Tried a little bit more the ZuPaPlayer on ARM, seems the Zune on ARM is not on the same status as i386. A List event fired on i386, seems never fire on ARM, which makes it impossible to move songs in the list. Because I compiled the libmikmod myself, I increased the buffer for the AHI mikmod module (on i386 AROS I had some stutter problems). It works but now the pause button needs nearly 500 ms before it really stops. Not so nice, so I edited the AHI driver again a little bit and calculate the Buffersize dynamically from the frequency to cover 120 ms (got the idea from the Windows driver). Works rather nicely. So I made a release for ARM-AROS of ZuPaPlayer 0.2

Added a settings window to ZuPaPlayer, the most things are working already, at least what I need 😛 hotkeys and menu is not finished but the rest works already very nice. Maybe I should check some other MUI applications how Hotkeys are made MUI/Zune style. I’m still not very satisfied with mikmod, maybe it would worth a try on modplug. Nevertheless if someone is interested here is the current state. It’s early version so it is not complete maybe crash or strange behavior.

Worked a little bit more with GPS. At Aros-Exec, someone was so kind to test and other GPS with the program seems he also found one which works.
I put all things together and added some more debug output. In principle its still only a tool to learn how to operate GPS devices to build to Mapparium later. But in fact it’s also a nice little tool to play with. The record track function was so easy to implement so it could be a more lightweight tool to record Tracks, instead of the big Mapparium. It even works on Amiga without GFX-card (unlike Mapparium).
It got an own page, on the Mapparium page it would be too messy. But I don’t think they will be much updates on the little program, maybe later I will clean up a bit and put the source to github.

A new Mapparium release bring the image position showing to public including some AREXX commandos for it. But there are more changes. Finally I added a Menu for the Main Window. There are some problems with the menu on MorphOS, and I want to prevent bug announcement about this. I should really again try to find a clue about it. Besides this added overall statistics.
- ADD: Image List with EXIF position Data
- ADD: Image preview
- ADD: AREXX commands for Add images to imagelist
- ADD: Menu for Main window and ImageList
- ADD: Active Route color
- ADD: Overall statistics
- FIX: Color settings
Download as always on Mapparium Page
The new Mapparium has some basic route calculation support. I found two usable services, YOUR and OpenLS. Both have positive and negative sides, YOUR is much more reliable but only support the orders as text without coordinates where the direction order is active. OpenLS had on my tests some speed issues, sometimes very slow, even 1 day offline as it seems, but it supplies orders also with position informations.
- FIX: AROS invisible search text
- ADD: Routing calculation via YOUR or OpenLS
- FIX: better Prefs window
- ADD: Save/load routes from GPX
- CHG: Open TrackView or RouteView on Show/Edit Button
- CHG: Moved Track title edit into TrackView
- ADD: Context sensitive Add Button
- ADD: Possibility to hide/show tracks/route
- FIX: Faster drawing for 68k Amiga

Mapparium 0.5 on MorphOS
New Version of Mapparium for all Amiga systems.
Most important changes are, AREXX Port (not available on AROS, due to Zune restriction), Find by IP, Check position, localized search and support for Garmin FIT data. Have fun for me it works already better than my other route inspector programs, I also use it on Linux as my default. I just notice when adding many routes it becomes a litte messy, because the start of every route is the same, maybe I need an option to hide routes from the view.
- ADD: Clear HD Cache by Button in Prefs to a certain zoom level
- ADD: Find current position (by ip)
- ADD: Search position by ip (type: ip:x.x.x.x to search)
- ADD: Get address for current position
- ADD: Zoom in by double mouse click
- ADD: AREXX port with commands “goto” and “addwaypoint”
- ADD: Loading of Garmin FIT data
- ADD: Other color for active track
- FIX: Umlauts fix in search header
- FIX: Search by Return press in search box

Whats written there.
Strange problem appeared with Mapparium on AmigaOS4, all texts are invisible. The funny thing: on my UAE and the OS4 computer at Amiga meeting it was working, difficult to debug. But thanks to some guys at amiga.org I was able to solve it. First I thought it was some Font issue but then I found an informations about color setting in AmigaOS4 and that the given color also contains an alpha value and this was of course always zero for my setting now. MorphOS/AROS/Amiga does not need there a value. And after a failed try (I missed one call) I got a positive feedback from Amiga.org.
Besides this I fixed some little things and implemented Garmin tcx reading (also a xml format but seems only for tracks). Because of this I decided to make a new release for all platforms not only for AmigaOS4 and called it 0.3.
