Update AFA OS 3.93.1

"The goal of AfA OS is to bring modern features like Antialiasing (AA) to the AmigaOS since there is no further development for the 68k AmigaOS since OS3.9. AfA OS replaces AmigaOS core libraries with their more advanced AROS counterparts. This is done step by step, so you should come from time to time and look if there is a new version of AfA OS.

AFA OS 3.93.1 can download here:

P96 and CGX libraries are large enough for new functions, they are not create new. This saves a little memory and AFA will now work with safer patches program too and maybe avoid other problems.

Ken Lester has drawn a Prefs Icon for AFA (thanks to him)

A deadlock is fixed when on slow systems move the slider of Stormwizard GUI listview that use AA truetype Fonts very fast for longer than 8 seconds.

picture datatypes fixes

background picture in magicmenu is now shown

1-256 color pictures work now with dtm_readpixelarray.Amistart can use iff 1-256 color pics for backgrounds
1-256 color backgroundpattern draw in MUI is faster than older AFA picture datatype

offical AROS Fix from Georg Steger

penfree draw added. Work Source compatible to MOS and AROS

Now all important new functions of OS4 and MOS are added. If you still miss a function for your program let me know, I think its not much work to implement that.

execlibrary now uses only the funcs that need for new features. This helps that afa does not overwrite the patches that bvision powerup rom install early and hopefully allow PPC programs work

FreeMem (mempointer,size) now allow mempointer=0, to be compatible to AOS. This help some programs (rcftp,rawbinfo with pngicons) to not crash"

Running the 3.93.1 beta here
Works like a charm, the 3.92 versions slowed down the system but this new version rocks
