|MorphOS 1.4 is a really nice update, I will mention some new things|
off the top of my head. It supports drag'n'drop and rubber band icon
selection and movement. MUI has lots of new features like blended
frames, gradients and several high quality images included for buttons
etc. Built in USB and printing prefs. When using "show all files" the
files without a physical icon actually show as
semi-transparent/ghosted so that you can tell them apart from real
You can set a seperate screenmode for each application right in the
standard "screenmode prefs" and these can all have their own "skin".
Solid resizing and built in "mode edit" is included. A configurable
and objectpanel/dockbar is present that supports "zipping",
"auto lock to edges", realtime icon scaling and several other nice
ProStationAudio (from superbundle) is working now and
is a powerful audio editor. A new MP3/OGG player is included too,
called "Kaya". Zoom windows, calculator, taskmanager etc. I have been
having fun playing with all the new MUI and other settings for hours
trying various looks and features. :)
The JIT is integrated and works wonderfully. I have noticed an
increase in speed and stability throughout. A quick test of 68k math
in AmiGod2 shows over twice as fast as previous and closer to 1Ghz
Amithlon systems. This combined with the fact that all OS components
are PPC brings 68K software to very usable levels, even for most
rendering and processing tasks. ImageFX, Cinema4D and TV Paint all
work very quickly and show marked improvements.
I would have to say that the speed, configurability
and stability has passed my Amithlon and A4000T/060 system in every
respect with this release. A big Thanks to the MorphOS team! :)
