Very impressive!

Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

When the work is appreciated you have more energy to create something, I am not a developer but in my small way I want to give my contribution.

The video of the Themes had a good success on Youtube, about a hundred views in a few days, now I created one on WBDock2 to show its functionality on AROS 68k

This is the best mindset! Everyones contributions counts, be it development, translating, documentation, distribution building or even advertizing. Keep up your work :)

I updated my Distro AROS One 68k with the Nightly Build "2021-06-21" but "About AROS" shows an old date of "2021-06-5" ?

Update to icon.library 46.4.548, 47.-1.548, 51.4.548 (experimental)

Officially released the experimental version of the Icon.library by PeterK that includes also the new icon.library for AROS 68k, as I requested now the new Icon.library on all supported Amiga OS and AROS 68k will be able to recognize 9 types of files through the Descriptors (Datatypes) or through DefIcons. The files will be recognized both if they have an extension or if they don't have an extension both from Deficons and from Descriptors (the ones to be modified), i enclose a quote from PeterK and a link to download the Iconlib package:

Added the ability to identify files by the datatypes system as a 2. chance to determine the names of default icons in case that DefIcons or Eastern didn't do that or supplied only a standard Project icon. The datatypes will try to load an icon corresponding to the (internal) datatype name, for example something like ENV:Sys/def_JFIF.info (use SnoopDos), or in case that this icon doesn't exist, they also try to it with the GroupID name again. There are 9 groups: System, Animation, Document, Instrument, Movie, Music, Picture, Sound and Text. So, in my example, the jfif.datatype would also try to load ENV:Sys/def_picture.info. On WB 3.0/3.1 this new feature won't work for the Workbench task, because that never calls GetIconTagList() with a file name. But a few other tools like SwazInfo may benefit.

There are 2 script based IconMixers included (using ProcessIcon) which can combine (True)ColorIcons with the planar images of MWB or old icons. The mixed icons will contain both image sets. One script keeps the MWBIcon settings, the other one retains the GlowIcon tooltypes.

Great movement for this new library, the v548 has been removed because it included a wrong argument, problem that I had reported to Peterk that at first I had noticed only me, yesterday evening the confirmation of Peter that has identified and fixed the Bug with the release of a new version for AROS 68k v.549 that I'm experimenting and it seems to go very well, also Peter is experimenting an AROS 68k version of Eastern.

Update to icon.library 46.4.549, 47.-1.549, 51.4.549 (bugfix for 548 and small improvement, delete 548!)

One script keeps the MWBIcon settings, the other one retains the GlowIcon tooltypes. My option "Reduce8PlanesTo3" might be useful for getting correct looking MWB images and without wasting space. PNG icon have to be converted with "ConvertPNGtoOS4" before adding planar images to them. Disable the options "DropPlanarImages" or "DropPlanar" in tools like RAWBInfo or CopyIcon. The mixed icons get damaged by AfA_OS, don't use these scripts there.

"Eastern" Also works fine on AROS 68k but currently only with 256 Color images, see screenshot

Imported all AROS x86 descriptors and icons to AROS 68k, everything was supported brilliantly :)

Updated AROS One 68k to the latest Nightly Build, also updated the supported "free" OS3 software park.
 The stability and speed of AROS One 68k is greatly improved but it's not yet ready for distribution, I'd like to remove all OS3 software and use only native AROS One 68k software, at the moment not yet available.

As for AROS x86 installed also on AROS 68k my little Application "Shutdown" created in Arexx to be executed through a proper icon or from WBDock, see screenshot,  the little Arexx Script through request allows to close the Workbench.

New version of the famous System Monitor for Amiga supported also by AROS 68k

On Aminet is available also the source of the new SnoopDos v3.10, maybe someone could create a native AROS 68k/x86 version.

https://aminet.net/search?query=SnoopDos


EDIT:

Today SnoopDos has been updated to version 3.11. The version distributed yesterday v3.10 has been corrected because it prevented execution from Workbench

Installed on AROS One 68k a new Application named "AmiGemini" "Protocol Browser" software, a kind of lightweight hypertext browser to provide a simple hypertext format that simplifies linking between files. The application is suitable for those who oppose the pervasive tracking of users on the web, those who are tired of annoying pop-ups, auto-starting videos and other annoying things encountered on the web, convenient even for those who have a slow network.

In preparation other 2 Themes inspired to GoogleOS/Windows11, I remember that the Themes are usable both on AROS 68k and AROS x86, the only thing that changes are the Pointers, AROS x86 uses different Pointers not supported by AROS 68k :-[
