The AmiFox Server can already be used via docker container with everything you need installed, but this works atm only for x64 linux with docker installed. But the original WRP was already prepared to cross compile to multiple targets, so I made a release with all the platforms available which includes, Windows, Mac or Linux on a RasPi, there you can start the apps directly. You might need some additional packages though, for example a current Google Chrome / Chromium Browser browser must be installed.
A new version of AmiFox is ready for release, I fixed some more bugs the last days. The 0.3 Version is a big step forward for usability of AmiFox. Most of these features I already introduced in the blog entries here so just a short recap.

If you using an own AmiFox Server please note that you must update to the latest Version to get all the Features, The Current Version should have the Version Number „AmiFox-Server 0.3“ visible in the AmiFox about (after at least one page was loaded) or in the footer of the AmiFoxServer webpage, next to the WRP Version number.
Finally after 4 alpha version and 6 beta versions we (McDope, Amix and me) think AmiFox, a new browser for classic Amiga, is ready for it’s first release. This is Version 0.2 so one can see it’s still in development and many things to improve but I guess many people want to try how it works. And we can test how the server behave under heavier load than in the beta tests.
There is a special page for AmiFox where you can download the program.
„Alex R“ found a AmiTube problem on Amiga OS4 and reported it to me. (some days before already) I tried to implement that AmiTube remembers the splitter position. Sadly I made a big error there resulting in a very small barely recognizable List on the left side of the window. I only tested it on m68k-Amiga where it did not happen, but after a bit of trying I found the culprit and fixed it.
Originally I planed to release that fix with the next version, but now I got some more bug reports about the exact same thing (hmm, nobody of the beta testers reported it). It seems that it is not only an OS4-problem but also happens on at least MorphOS and some 68 Amigas. Therefore I will release this new version now, with bugfixes only, no functional changes.
Sorry for the trouble, if you are affected by this bug.
I finished some bug reports (most related to the fancy list), big thanks to the beta testers, especially „HANsolo“ who found the most bugs, thanks very nice work.
One thing I changed, The „Auto icon load“ setting in prefs will now also set the fancy list to auto load the icons or not, that way I guess it is maybe also usable on slower Amigas as well. I tried out on my real A1200 (with TF1260, AGA 32 color screen) and even with the icon preview on, it’s not that bad, certainly fast enough to work with it. I like it.
So the changes for this Version are quite short:
Fancy movie list
updated translation for italian and french
encoding bug fixes (should show now umlauts and other non ASCII chars in title and description)
smaller bugs fixes related downloading movies
Download as always via the Updater in the Program or on the AmiTube page
Finally here it is the 1.0 of AmiTube a lot of changes. As shown before now it contains a Download queue to start more than one conversation/download job which are processed one after the other. A Typical Amiga thing is the AREXX interface, all good programs have it, therefore AmiTube needs that as well. There are commands to search and to start a convert job and play a movie.
For this new Version I will also supply a Version for AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS due to popular demand.
Next to the search bar is now a Button which opens the search history.

The new release for AmiTube is ready to rock. The most important news are the Large AGA CDXL Setting (320px width) But be aware the file become huge. The other feature, which could make AmiTube interesting for NG Amigas, is the direct download of the Original movie or Audio only file.
Also new is the Update function, it checks for update and downloads the new LHA archive. This time there are more translation included (french by Eric ‚Tarzin‘ Luczyszyn and norwegian by Michal Bergseth).

I got some request for AmiTube for AROS because with the MPEG feature it is nicely possible to download and view videos in AROS. In AOS4 and MorphOS you can easily just use the m68k Version because of the seamless integration of 68k Emulation. But in AROS this is no possbile, therefore I compiled a special version for i386 AROS ABIv0 and ARM AROS.
Don’t forget to set a MPEG as default and a suitable MPEG player like mplayer, in principle a simple downloader would be enough for AROS (and AOS4, MorphOS for that matter) i386/arm should be fast enough to play the original format, so no conversation is needed at all.
