Not sure what you mean. DBLPAL and DBLNTSC are available on the bootmenu already, and the system will boot into these modes when selected. Of course, the mode saved in ENVARC: will then take over. So whatever a VGA mode is, you can keep it alive after reset by saving the screen mode prefs.

Sorry, but I am not clear about the use case for this. The screen mode set at the boot menu is only a "last resort" in case you need to fiddle with the system early on and your monitor does not accept 15kHz input. For that, it is sufficient. To boot your system into a user-defined screen mode, the screen mode preferences are the way to go. The boot menu is not a replacement for the screen mode prefs.

I apologize if this has been discussed before, but I would like to know what is the situation of implementing something similar to OxyPatcher or HSMathsLibs.

We all know that OxyPatcher is a hack, ok, but the improvement is so substantial that although we are lovers of systemfriendly-legal software, the improvement is so great that a lot of us sacrifice having a hack for on this occasion.

Is it not possible to do what the native oxypatcher does in the system without having to use it in a future AmigaOS release?

Thanks

That already exists. Get the MuLib package, free of charge, from Aminet. The 68040 and 68060.library that are part of the package provide the "fpsp.resource", which provides direct access to the math emulation code without a trap. The mathieeedoubbas/singbas libraries from 3.1.4 already make use of this resource for math operations, and hence do not require a trap (hence, replace the "HS" libs, except that the system libraries are generic and also work in the absense of a FPU). From the MuLib package, use MuRedox. It is a more than able replacement for the Oxypatcher that, unlike the latter, knows the complete instruction set of the 68881/882 and includes a tiny "just in time compiler" to generate instruction the program needs. Hence, no operating system required, all available for you free of charge, from Aminet, including proper system integration into 3.1.4.

Well, I just can say thank you for the explanation Thomas. I'll check MuLib.

For developers they need to see the job easily.

The bounty system needs updating, ability to share & promote a job/contract and progress.

What would it take ?

An amiga programming CTO / coordinator - get paid % for each job.
- Is familiar with internal Amiga API and can help developers with information / files.

They would offer the job on Freelance.com

Once accepted :

update the bounty system

step by step clarify requirements, incorporate suggestions etc

Give access to an online Amiga C/C++ developer server

Thomas, Would you consider resuming writing about the 3.2 development updates in a non-interactive forum? I enjoyed reading those.

I read it all, with great interest as well.
Your patience with those two trolls was impressive, where were the amiga.org moderators!?
Perhaps a blog with disabled comments would be a better format? (Not sure how flexible the forum software is in this regard)

Kolla is banned for ever. So Thomas could you consider?

What do you mean by that?

I constantly pulled kolla up about his trolling in that thread and others, sent him numerous PMs and temp banned him multiple times.

None of this changed his behaviour though, he wouldn't ever stop; so I was the one who ultimately banned him permanently.

DamienD: I though we were talking about the 3.2 thread on Amiga.org where kolla was being a constant pita.

I’m glad to hear he’s banned here.

Why would we be talking about threads on Amiga.org here?

I have no association with Amiga.org... what the moderators over there do / how they handle trolls is their own business.

I can tell you that he was a massive troll here on EAB and after all the stuff I listed above; he still wouldn't change and kept up with his constant rubbish, so had to go...

That's where the development updates were posted back then, so I guess mentioning it was unavoidable on this subject.

Unfortunately the moderators on amiga.org are not quite as active as here on EAB.. Don't worry, the criticizm was not directed at any EAB moderator. :-)

Todays replies all came as a reply to Jope’s comment today.
Thomas made blog like development notes about all the changes in os3.2 in this thread on amiga.org: https://forum.amiga.org/index.php?topic=74270.0
All very interesting but polluted by a couple trolls.

My comment was aimed at amiga.org moderators.

Thomas Richter is free to create an "AmigaOS 3.2" thread here on EAB to discuss / blog like development notes about all the changes.

He could even just copy / paste all his relevant posts from "Amiga.org" into this new one

It's a safe enivironment where no trolling will be allowed
