- gui library completely reworked for XaAes keyboard navigation
- nearly all dialogs updated with newer object types
(these objects require N.Aes, XaAes, or MagiC or compatible AES)
- new option to redirect /whois output to the console tab
- 2 minor bugs fixed
Have a safe and wonderful New Year Atari users. ;-)

aIRC has gone through several internal revisions and I can report now that the keyboard navigation works in XaAes. Currently not released to the public yet though.

He was a member of YesCREW as am I.
I didn't know him personally, but it's still very sad news none the less.
P.S. Sorry to SWE for borrowing the image from your site, but I thought it was important.

Sanitation Technician -> Garbage Man
Virtual Machine -> Emulator
See how that works? Don't be fooled by fancy names.
The Merriam-Webster Online definition of 'emulator'. You will notice right away it does not state how one reaches that goal. If it looks like a duck, if it sounds like a duck... guess what? It's a duck.
Note that 'Virtual Machine' is not in the dictionary.
However it totally does not work under MagiC. The call wind_set(WF_TOOLBAR...) actually returns an error condition.
A quote from The Atari Compendium:
"This mode attaches a toolbar to the specified window. parm1 and parm2 contain the high and low WORD of the address of the toolbar OBJECT tree respectively. parm3 and parm4 are unused.Set parm1 and parm2 to 0 to remove a toolbar."
This call works in Atari's AES, N.Aes, and XaAes, and maybe even Geneva? But not under MagiC. Yet another example of MagiC's lack of documented AES system calls. :o(

"Applications running under MultiTOS may use this function to provide a more functional title for the 'Desk' menu than the program's filename."
Under MagiC this call always fails and you get the ugly 8+3 file name in the 'Desk' menu no matter what. Far as I know this cannot be corrected with any GEM lib.
Just one example of a documented system call that MagiC does not support.

Note: This entry has changed. I have calmed down. Be that as it may, the above statement is still 100% true regardless of ones personal preferences.

Well another year past and NAS 2005 is over. It was a real treat to see the activity on the live webcam this year. My favorite image has to be this one. I stepped out for super and when I returned there was Ozk, smack in front of the camera! In the background is GokMase coding away on his trusty FalconCT60. ;o) Wish I could have been there.

If you have any information on the GFA-Basic Compiler (Atari version) command $S|, please contact me. It's not in my manual at all. I already have an idea what it does. What I am after is hard facts like a photocopy of the page from your manual, an OCR'd page, a snapshot, something in detail. Something official from GFA. ;o)
