AmigaOS 4.1: Enhancer Software 2.2 Released!

Hi everyone,

Version 2.2 of Enhancer Software from A-Eon Technology was released today!

Please read on for the full press release as posted on Amigaworld.net:

9th August 2022
A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to celebrate six years of the Enhancer Software. by releasing version 2.2

The new update is available to all existing Version 2 users as a free download from the Updater tool. It is also available to purchase for new customers as a boxed CD from Amiga Kit, selected dealers and digitally from AMIStore App Store.
.

Version 2.2 is the cumulation of ten months hard work by the Amiga Developer Team adding new functionality and features to the previous version.

This release represents the most advanced and polished edition of the software. Thanks to user feedback and developer diligence, we have increased the software quality, features and functionality to even higher levels.

What is the Enhancer Software ?

The Enhancer Software adds to or replaces system components in OS4.1 to provide it with a lot more functionality: from essential 2D video drivers to a modern 3D graphics sub-system, more advanced utilities, tools, classes and gadgets. Over the last six years the package has become increasingly important for users.

Crucially the Enhancer Software code base is independent so can evolve and be released regularly with the Amiga Developer Team working steadfastly on improving the package. It is not held up or constrained by any hiatus in OS4.1 development.

What is new in release 2.2 ?

Looking to the future a major evolution of the Enhancer Software will be Release V54. Behind the scenes it has been in concurrent development with this release so several V54 advanced components have made their debut early by being included in release 2.2.

Warp3D Nova V54 now replaces it’s predecessor, V1.85. This major upgrade represents an extra years worth of development offering major new functionality, speed improvements and fixes. It is an essential requirement for many new 3D game ports with full shader support (such as Doom3). Support also added for the soon to be released NovaBridge.


OpenGL ES Library has updated to Version 3.3 with many parts being rewritten and optimised. which is also mandatory for new 3D applications such as SCUMMVM, SDL2 and GL4ES.

RadeonRX 2D video driver now updated with the major feature of GART support providing extra 3D performance. Many additional optimisations.

Video Acceleration Library further upgraded

AmiDVD has been fixed for current Kernel

  1. I can’t for the life of me tell how much this costs… the links are not helpful either. How much is the full package?

  2. Great! New OS 4 software is always welcome!

    Or… is it? A-EON has been accused of splitting the Amiga community by developing non-compatible OS replacement components. Furthermore, it has been suggested that the end game is a brand new OS, further adding to splitting the community.

    Any Amiga media should be aware of this and its possible ramifications, and treat any press release concerning “Enhancer” with a slew of constructive criticism. It’s in everyone’s interest.
