There's already a WB 137 from Cosmos in BB4.

Update to icon.library 46.4.457:

Changed the handling of the blitter function calls in order to take subsequent patches into account. - Improved the immunity of the extended v44 DiskObject structure against degrading to v40 by the WB 3.0/3.1 Icon Information and maybe other tools.

Update to icon.library 46.4.458:

The screen handling in the GetIcon() function for WB 3.0/3.1 has been simplified and the memory management by freelists was corrected.

No sorry, not corrected, but even more bugged. 458 removed.

Update to icon.library 46.4.459:

Another attempt to synchronize the parallel handling of the memory freelists by WB 3.0/3.1 and icon.library in two different list structures with the same nodes! I've changed the functions AddFreeList() and FreeRemove() in icon.library in order to update to the latest modifications in the freelists done by WB 3.0/3.1 before the functions are executed and afterwards synchronizing the results back to the list structures managed by the old WB.

So, this is yet another testversion and needs your feedback and bug reports. Something I couldn't fix are the wrong colors after a screenmode change and some instability until you do a reboot. Similar happens under DOpus5 running on OS 3.1. It's very difficult to analyze these problems.

@AMIGASYSTEM
Please, don't sell my testversions as the latest thrillers in Italy, there are too many systems and cats dying in these tragedies. And never publish any direct links to the downloads on the first page. They are very soon getting outdated.

Update to icon.library 46.4.460:

The instability after a screenmode change under WB 3.0/3.1 when you tried to modify the wrong colored icons with Icon Information or CopyIcon seems to be fixed now. The icons screen is set to the actual screen of intuition before any colormapping is done and the internal routine releasepens will no longer be executed under WB 3.0/3.1. No Enforcer hits anymore.

Sounds great but I suposse that with DOpus5 I will have to reboot anyway.

Edit: Yes, there is a problem with Intuition trying to reset the screen like always.

Don't worry, I will try to care about the screenmode change under DOpus5 next. DOpus5 didn't have the highest priority for me in the past, but I also never realized that there was such a problem until I accidentally checked that a few days ago. Why did nobody send me a bug report?

Update1: After trying my old versions I found 46.4.250 being the last one where the DOpus5 screenmode changes on OS 3.1 are still working reliable. Up to 46.4.256 there are the first smaller bugs and in 271 it's completely broken already. Unfortunately, all versions between 256 and 271 are lost since one of my old HDDs died. It might become difficult to analyze the changes now.

Update2: Just found the full version 46.4.270 and it still does the screenmode change without Enforcer hits, but then freezes intuition after openening some windows. 270 was the first Aminet release with WB 3.0/3.1 support and FastColors. This will need some time for investigations.
