The translation fooled me, more than a surprise inside the raisin, I would say that this is a real "treasure hunt", an Italian saying

Im very happy with 3.2 so far. I use it on my A1200 with a PCMCIA network card. Everything works fine as long as I have this in my Startup-Sequence:

Code:
FailAt 11
CardReset FORCE
FailAt 10
The FailAt workaround is there so it won't abort during boot in my other Amiga that does not have PCMCIA, when I use the same CF there.

Would be nice to not have to use CardReset in a future AmigaOS

Agree, and we have tried to implement many fixes to pcmcia but then had to disable them due to compatibility issues with 3rd party hardware of all sorts that does not behave according to the book and does some funky things to achieve their goal. So you can't please everyone in this case. I do suggest to do a hardware fix, it's a very simple operation, and you can even get simple dongles that plug on the chips to do the same if soldering is not on your skill.

You could also build your custom kickstart with ResetCard blizkick modules like I did.

The trouble is that this is really quite unclear what this software does. There is no "software assisted reset" the PCMCIA hardware would be able to generate, so this is doing something else. Soldering a wire from the reset logic to the PCMCIA slot is the best possible solution for this problem as this seems to be a hardware problem, not a software problem.

I have found a bug in AmigaOS 3.2. Where do i report it? Here?

To reproduce, start Hippoplayer, go to prefs and enable ”doubleclick”.
Load a bunch of tunes to the playlist.
Now quickly switch songs by double clicking on them in the list.
After 3-4 song swaps it always leads to a crash here.

This doesn’t happend in any previous os version.

The theory from the developer right now is that the debug log spits out too much data and overloads con.. the beta works in 3.1 though something somewhere isn’t right.

I suspect Hippo may be slightly incompatible with 3.2. Investigation is ongoing

Does anyone know if they plan to release free updates to 3.2 or if they instead (sooner or later) will release a 3.2.1 version?

WANTED: SHELL IMPROVEMENTS

New Shell 47+ improvements:
  • after drag'n'drop shell window should be automatically selected, saving you an additional mouse click to continue writing into the shell window
  • CTRL+drag'n'drop should import the path only for the dragged item, not including the dragged file name (useful!)
  • scrolling (scrollbar) history like KCON/VNC
  • CTRL and ALT + cursors should move through end-of-word/next word/symbols as other shells do... only SHIFT+cursors is working (begin/end of line) ATM in Shell 47.47

The first one is a bug and we have already found a fix. The rest are feature requests and btw not related to shell but rather to console (of which shell is the main user)

I'm looking forward to IconEdit being brought up to the level of 3.9's.

I see. Hope you'll keep them and the others I posted in consideration for next release

In my mind the 3.9 version is nothing to aspire to. Sure it supports the colorful icon format extension but in general I'm disliking the user experience of it.

Actually, it's disappointing the OS supports ColorIcons but the icon editor in OS3.2 is not capable to manage them. I'm sure it will be added in the future.
I use PPaint + pio_icon plugin anwyay to create icons...

Yes it is easy to always wish for something more, but we had to draw the line somewhere knowing we have to address it in the future. There are several other things we would wish too to round off 3.2, but you can always continue to put more and more into a release and then the release would never happen. So what we did end up releasing was a good state which we could subject to a lot of testing and bugfixing over many months. We are very much aware of the need for an updated IconEdit, and I've been experimenting with it, even before 3.2 was released, but from wishes and experiments to a finished product is a long way.
