SDK Browser v18.104.22.168 Released - Finally getting to updating my website
Finally taking a few moments to update my website for the new year and package up the
maintenance release of the SDK Browser(v22.214.171.124), which I put together at the AmiWest
DevCon back in October of 2017.
For those of you that attended the AmiWest 2017 DevCon you should already have this
version. However, I recommend downloading the newly posted one because it has been
updated with matching README text, etc. Of course, if you own a registered copy of
the SDK Browser, you may download your personalized version from your private download
Equally, owners of the AVD Suite may also download their version of the SDK Browser
under the Members Only page.
I have been very busy, since before the AmiWest show, working on various AmigaONE
and AmigaOS4 related projects with the guys at AOTL.
Hence my delay in making this post today. However, while we are working on foundation
products and fun new hardware and software projects for the AmigaONE machines, development
on AVD and it's components has not been forgotten. The GUI Builder is my primary focus
as the next AVD component to be released. It will be released as a standalone product,
as part of the FreeAVD Suite, and of course as a major part of the AVD Suite.
As always I appreciate your support and patience for this long term project.
Thanks to your support, and the support of Amiga On The Lake as a full time
patron of my efforts, I have been able to work exclusively on developing
Amiga related products for over six months now, and with luck should be able
to continue to do so throughout all of 2018.
Releasing the source code of the SDK Browser:
For anyone who read my 2017 posting about the AmiWest show, or who was there
in person, you know that a very good friend of mine passed away while I was
attending the show. As a tribute to my friend's memory, I announced that I would
be releasing the entire source code for the SDK Browser to Open Source as a
teaching tool on how to write software for AmigaOS4.
As planned I will be releasing the full source code for the current version
of the SDK Browser (v126.96.36.199 - FREEWARE Edition). In order to accomplish this
I must first decouple the source from the rest of the AVD Suite.
This is a larger task then it sounds since the AVD Suite is designed to be
highly integrated with the other components of AVD. Therefore I have decided
to wait until the commercial version of the SDK Browser v188.8.131.52 is released
before taking the time to prepare v184.108.40.206 FREEWARE Edition for release
as Open Source.
This certainly has been a very active and fun year for me working on Amiga
related research and development full time again.
