I am happy for the release, did you receive my PM reply with my E-mail address ?

About AROS 68k, did you read my quote about the problem anim.datatype and picture.datatypes ?

I read the message about the email address. I will send the pdf and MultiView binary at the same time.

I didn't see the message about anim datatype and picture datatypes. I missed that one.  :)

I will compile Anim Datatype for AROS 68k and post it.

I will compile the latest GIF Datatype for 68k, x86 & x86_64.

Ok thanks, about the Web Page Viewer the datatype that doesn't work well is "picture.datatypes"

The newest MultiView is almost ready but DTConvertGUI has an issue that I need to fix. I believe the problem is getting an empty datatype of the destination file. Instead I'll use simple strings. That way it will likely work for AROS 68k, x86 and x86_64 also.

Also for MultiView opening a small image such as an icon image results in a tiny window in the top left corner. Minimum size is currently set at 50x50 pixels. It's so small you can't access the gadgets at the top of the window. It's so annoying.

So I will set a "larger" min window size such as 100x110 pixels.

Yes 100x110 pixels has a better view than a stamp ;)

The problem with Min Window Size set at 50x50 has been resolved. It's now Min 100x100.

I hope you don't mind but I set the default to open the window centered on screen.  ;)

The updates for MultiView have been completed. But there may be a slight delay. I have to verify & test all the new functions.

Here are the AROS 68k binaries for MultiView 1.8 and DTConvertGUI.

I included a sample MultiView Icon with ToolTypes. But you can make your own.

I have to set up a Build System maybe this weekend for compiling x86 binaries.

Then I can compile the updated datatypes and MultiView. DTConvertGUI for x86 will be available soon.

For the next set of updates for MultiView the Image resize function will allow saving resized images. Also Multi-Image support for displaying & saving icon images, Tiff images and other Multi-Image formats is made possible using WhichPicture & GetNumPictures that is now part of our Picture.Datatype. And the About Box will be updated to show more information.

If you've tried the MultiView version 1.8 the About Box now has two buttons - Continue & Cancel. At the moment both close the message window. But in the future update "Continue" will provide additional information based on the type of datatype. For example for pictures the Project About Box will no longer show width, height, depth & number of colors. Only Project Information for MultiView & Library Versions & Dataype Name & Class will show for consistency. The pic info will be part of Picture About displayed with "Continue" option. There will be Sound About, Text About, Anim About. It allows more flexibility.

The user can still use About to quickly view the Datatype Name & Class as well as the current version of MultiView & Libraries. Continue will simply provide more optional datatype information. Also when an image is resized the Picture About Box shows its current size not the original size as before.

Great miker, Multiview gets more and more interesting, today I will do a test on the compatibility of all supported sounds.
