AmigaOS 3.9 Boing Bag #3

AmigaOS 3.9 Boing Bag #3 - UPDATED 03-DIC-2009
====================
NO WARRANTIES: USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Well, it seems pretty clear nowadays (may 29th 2008), Amiga Inc is going nowhere, and there is not even a clear path of upgrade for Classic Amiga 68k users. So I decided to recreate an Amiga Boing Bag list that could include nearly all current semi-official patches for 3.9. Caution has been taken to avoid the use of patches that may cause problems, but then i can guarantee nothing.
This Boing Bag has been tested on both an A1200 and UAE with different configurations, and it works beatifully!
A word of warning: This list was created in an attempt to create a post AmigaOS 3.9 boing
bag #2 update, its proper installation requires of a skilled Amiga user!
For futher details keep on reading this document.

AMIGAOS 3.9 BOING BAGS I & II

AMIGAOS 3.9 PROGRAM UPDATES

AHI 6.7

AMPlifier 2.35
somehow download and install the AmiKit package, its in there, just take the time to etxract & replace your AMPlifier files from over there.

XADmaster V12.1a + XADmaster.key.

AWeb APL Lite 3.5 (version 3.5.09)

Action (MooVId) 1.6
Added support for: INTEL INDEO 3.1 & 3.2 (IV31/IV32), JPEG/JFIF (MOV) 8/24bit, QT3/QT4/QT5 streaming MOV files, 3IVX Delta 1/2 (3iv1), QT 64bit filesupport, OpenDivx/DIVX4/DIVX5.xx (DIVX/DX50), MPEG4/MPEG4 V1 (DIV1/MPG4/MP41), MPEG4 V2 (MP42), MPEG4 V2 (MP43), MPEGI/Layer2 audio (mp2), MPEGI/Layer3 audio (mp3), Sorenson Codecs (QT/SVQ1), MPEG4/QT6, and lots of bugs got fixed & few new features.

A file named "3ivx1d3_codec_68k Moovid.lha" that is the 3iv1 Delta 3 codec distribution for 68k Amigas and works with MooVid

AMIGAOS 3.9 REPLACEMENTS:

Serial.device v43.7 is buggy and is causing modem connection problems. Use previous serial.device v43.4, which allows you to connect fine.

There are two sets of printer drivers on the 3.9 CD:
The drivers in: AmigaOS3.9:Emergency-Boot/Devs/Printers/ are the original drivers from the OS 3.5 CD, and should work fine.
The drivers in: AmigaOS3.9:OS-Version3.9/Workbench3.9/Storage/Printers/ are from Boing Bag 1, and are known to be buggy.

For omniscsi.device users (GVP scsi boards & adapters), there is a bug in PlayCD, and a workaround called "playcdkludge"

There is a new appp.device v3.4 which has a new function that lets you use long usernames and activates a DSL-mode that negotiates the necessary options for a DSL line with the dialup computer.

AMIGAOS 3.9 UPDATE PATCHES

Amigaguide.datatype 45.6 - Fixes race condition with amigaguide.datatype V45.5: some guide
documents are not displayed properly if their size is odd.

Genesis has packet fragmentation issues. There is a fix for that

Icon.library 46.4a - Icon/Copy takes ICONCTRLA_SetGlobalMaxNameLength into account now, plus many fixes, no more memory leaks using Deficons tool etc. IconBeFast like functionality. it is optimized for 68020+ and is romable

MultiView 45.10 - Many fixes

Rexxsyslib.library 44.2 - fixes longword write into unallocated memory

Workbench.library 45.131 - Too many fixes

The CacheCDFS shipped in OS 3.9 always mounts a CD as "Unnamed" if its
name consists of identical characters (e.g. "Q", "GG", "WWW", ...).

Asyncio.library 40.6 - few bug fixes

Awn-pipe 2.54 – Adds new features to this pipe and GUI generator

Say – Boingbag3 marks the return of the popular speech program, that now supports different accents.

Workbench.guide – A general help guide for BoingBag3 users, should be placed into SYS:Locale/Help/english/Sys/. So from now on, pressing the Amiga keyboard ¨Help¨ key, will make this workbench.guide, to automatically be displayed.

KICKSTART ROM UPDATES

Scsci.device 44.2- Adds proper LBA48 IDE support, so disks upto 144 petabytes (144,000,000 gigabytes)can be used. NOTE:HDToolbox works fine (at least up to 160GB) Some version create stupid default partitions but just manually delete them before creating "real" partitions. It also fixes a bug that overwrites memory past the allocated bytes. Adds speedyIDE optimizations

Shell 45.27 - Too many bugfixes to list

RAM-Handler 44.24 - Fixes the RAM disk to show the real size occupied - its no longer
100% full.

Console.device 44.10 - Fixed bug with rp_Font usage; console caches rp_Font of last opener's window in its own device base and could make use of it even after that window was closed. This could lead to race conditions such as accessing unallocated memory. For safety, this cached rp_Font copy is reset to gb_DefaultFont on each CloseDevice() now. It also fixes an ancient bug of console.device which doesn't reset text styles on CSI0m if aSDSS command was used.

FastFileSystem 45.15 - fixes mismatched memory deallocations and disk validation bug of FastFileSystem V45.13.

FUTURE
I hope someday someone can actually create an automated install script that installs all of this stuff!
If you happen to develop or meet by chance a cool and friendly AmigaOS 3.9 patch, then dont hesitate to add it to this list.
Hopefully i might release an AmigaOS 3.9 Boing Bag 3 contribution software list (Some usefull 3rd party software for 3.9).
