The new version of P96 (old Picasso96) is now available for download to all existing and new customers - just re-download the file from the order history of your user account. New customers should make a user account and log in, as download products are only visible to logged-in visitors.
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.
