Individual Computers has just released a new update to the P96 graphics driver (formerly Picasso96). The changes include fixes for the disappearance (in some cases) of the mouse pointer, improvements in memory management with a higher blitter value, and minor changes to the configuration tool. The update is available for download from your purchase history.

Thomas Richter updated the popular SnoopDOS program to version 3.11. As a reminder, this is a tool originally created by Eddy Carroll and used to monitor system operations. The new version fixes a minor bug with the display of the redundant letter "r" in the log redirected to the serial port. In fact, this fix was included in version 3.10, but after its introduction, the program does not start from the Workbench, which is removed by version 3.11.

This version keeps the Amiga-chipset active, even if the focus is on an RTG screen. This gives the appearance of a multi-monitor system, although it is not possible to move windows from one screen to another, like you may know it from more modern systems. To keep the Amiga-screen active, please set tooltype "DISPLAYCHAIN" to "No".
The Pixel64 driver has been fixed: Older drivers from "random" sources of the internet didn't reserve enough memory for sprites, trashing the mouse pointer, This corrected driver now uses the ateobus.library if it's present - but the driver will also work without this library.
The CV643D driver has been completely overhauled. This fixes display artefacts in high resolutions, enables all modes in Z-II mode, enables again a 24-bit BGR mode (though no screen dragging there), includes support for a new(!) planar mode, fixes the line drawer, the memory window support, border blanking, allows chip interrupts also in Zorro-II mode and many many other fixes.
This new version contains a slightly reworked CVIsionPPC driver that fixes minor clipping issues of its accelerated line drawer.
The complete list of changes is available in this dedicated forum.
Peter Keunecke has just released a new version of icon.library. This library has been written completely in optimized ASM code with IconBeFast 2 already built in. It works much faster
now and is also a lot smaller than the original icon.library.
