  • Added support for standard 12-bit AGA6-8 and HAM8 videos (used in some games in the late 90s)
  • Optimized versions for 68000, 68020, 68060, 68080
  • Extended one-line info message after video play has finished
  • Added support for 2GB limit of AmigaOS seek functions (it is still possible to play up to 4GB)
  • Some new features require agaconv 0.9.6 (e.g. big CDXL files with 32-bit frame number)

A number of old CDXL videos (including AGA CDXL videos) are now working as well; e.g. the Alien Breed AGA CDXL videos are working now. Those videos are 12-bit HAM8 videos (not using the 24-bit AGA color range) - therefore equivalent to a HAM6 CDXL with a 64 color palette. They can only be played on AGA hardware, but they only use the OCS color range.

There are also optimized AGABlaster versions for 68000/20/60 now. I didn't see a significant runtime difference on my 68060, but it might help a bit on a 68020/30.

There is also a "vampireized" version now. This one uses a few 68080 instructions. Therefore this one doesn't run on any other Amiga. Whether it runs on a Vampire, I don't know (because I cannot test it), but it should . If you have one, let me know!

The extended info line that is printed after running a video shows now also whether it's standard/custom 12-bit/24-bit CDXL video, etc.

The version number includes for which processor it's optimized, e.g. v0.9.82/20 is optimized for 68020.
