OS4Emu 1.7 released

Created by iti on May 8, 2005, 12:05 AM

  The most enthusiastically received program of the year is back.

#AmigaZeux presents OS4Emu 1.7!
Support for PPC native AmigaOS4 libraries
-----------------------------------------

OS4EMU can now load and initialize AmigaOS4 native libraries.

The emulation kernel looks for libraries from different locations in
this order:
PROGDIR:
PROGDIR:Libs
SYS:OS4EMU/Libs
SYS:OS4EMU/Classes

If corresponding library is found the kernel loads and initializes
library for use in the emulation.

Only PPC native autoinit libraries are supported and possible 68k jump
tables are discarded.

Other improvements
------------------

Added new interfaces:

- expansion.library (pci interface only)
- usergroup.library
- slider.gadget, colorwheel.gadget
- drawlist.image

It is now possible to run some PCI related utilities, i.e. pciscan.
Drivers are not supported.

- added interrupt support
- fixed P96 emulation (Zero from Universe had wrong colours)
- fixed MUI emulation
- fixed layers.library interface
- improved datatypes.library compatibility
