Appreciate what you're saying, but most of the existing software and distros are for ABI 0 as far as I know.

I already develop for ABI 1 first. I'll aim to make my work available for both for now.

Thanks a lot for your work. Realy good you understand the ABI situation. We all wish we could have abandoned abi v.0 by now but it is not
that simple. We talked about this many times and the natural way is to go ABI v.1 with AROS64. Everything for ARM or AROS 68k is ABI v.1 already.
AROS i386 32-bit will probably stay ABI v.0 for many reasons.

Unucliky, it seems polybios for AROS has some limitation due to a missing C++ compiler. It can create PDF files (and, in fact, RNO Effects correctly creates them), but it cannot, de facto, read them.

This is from Hollywood FAQ:
 
 Q: Why doesn't Polybios support the conversion of PDF pages to vector
 brushes on AROS?
 
 A: That's because PDFium requires a compiler capable of handling C++11 and
 wide characters which is currently unavailable for AROS. But this will
 hopefully change in the future so that AROS users can convert PDF pages
 into Hollywood brushes too.

ompiler capable of handling C++11

we have such compilers, if only not for abiv0, perhaps.

I built a C++11 cross-compiler (GCC 4.8.3) recently, so ABIv0 is definitely not lacking on that front.
This is just like television, only you can see much further.

a very good approach. building with aros toolchain makes it anyway less complicated to develop for v1 while keeping v0 up and allowing for multiple target archs imho.

you should contact the author of the program, I refer to RNOPDF and clarify this, maybe bring the program on aros

I am in contact with the author of both RNO REffects (I sincerely hope you're enjoying this program as I am), and RNOPDF. I am just quoting his explanation, which was in turn quoted from Polybios FAQ.
If we have such a compiler, we definitely have to advice POLYBIOS author, not RNOPDF one.

I'll try to bring things together.

On Aros 68k RNOPDF already works

Which is good in absolue but - IMHO - quite saddening from another point of view. We should catch up with that, really, on i386.
