Hi All,

Here is a new set of builds, with many fixes, see below. Please follow the same steps integrating with clean releases and updating system components found in the zip. Please do not use your previous .prefs files - there were many bugs related to loading/saving them so they will not work correctly with these executables. Also not that Scalos_Prefs and FileTypes_Prefs need 64kb stack or you will experience random crashes. Happy testing and let me know of outstanding issues.

https://axrt.org/development/scalos-builds-20220721.zip

Fixed:
- Numerous crashes when working on 64-bit with 64-bit heap
- Wrong background color of Scalos logo on Scalos splash window
- Backgroung image of Scalos splash window and Scalos About window is not visible
- Icon labels on desktop and in drawer windows are displayed using Topaz instead of Arial font
- Font.prefs are not being loaded on 64-bit
- Font.prefs are being wrongly saved on 64-bit
- scalos.prefs are not being loaded on x86 and x86_64, scalos is using always default prefecens
- scalos.prefs are being saved on x86 nad x86_64 in format not compatible with m68k
- NewPopupmenu.prefs is wrongly written
- Plugins are not loading at Scalos startup
- wbrexx.plugin is crashing at startup on 64-bit
- Multiple controls missing on Scalos Prefs/Icons page
- System crash when clicking on def icon image on FileTypes Prefs/Recognition page
- Status bar, control bar, buttons sometimes don't have images displayed
- Buttons in Scalos About window have white corneres rendered where they should be transparent
- Crash when leaving out an icon
- Crash when adding a User-defined Button to Control bar without setting it's properties in Scalos Prefs
- Crash when removing any button from Control bar in Scalos Prefs
- Scalos Prefs allows editing TTEngine font properties when TTEngine is not present causing crash in Icons/Labels and Text Windows/Fonts pages
- deficons.prefs are not being loaded on x86 and x86_64
- Reset to default in FileType Prefs and Save does not save prefrences

Won't fix:
- Scroolbars visible on titles of TrueType Fonts, PopupMenu, Menu, FileTypes, Pallette and Pattern pages of Scalos Preferences

Not fixed:
- Wrong rendering on DualPNG icons
- Refreshing drawer windows is slow
- Starting Prefs/Locale or Prefs/Input from Scalos causes other preferences to fail
- Desktop wallpaper is damaged where Splay window was displayed
- When started from Wanderer, after saving Scalos Prefs, reload does not re-open main Scalos window
- Difference in behavior between Cleanup from popup menu and Cleanup from top menu - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1p-SWoWvuZFk8DxwDW5Q6NVFrY7Rjsc8n/view?usp=sharing - possibly due to missing plugin, check Cleanup association in Menu Prefs
- Scalos sees icons of some executables as project instead of tool - example MPlayer

Scalos has improved greatly, the buttons now look good even the backgrounds i edited look good.

Only problem encountered at the moment, is that after saving with Scalos Prefs, you are prompted to close applications, what ? there are no applications open ! after saving the screen stays grey !

See my reply #62  :)

I still have to verify if it is always reproducible but for me it now seems to crash when attempting to close scalos. If it is then i'll post the crashlog.

Yes I had read it, I had also replied that with the previous version of Scalos, I did not have the gray screen, but only a small flash of gray screen, which could be eliminated altogether by disabling "iPrefs" from the startup-sequence, see my reply #66/68

I confirm the crash if you exit Scalos, it doesn't always happen, it definitely happens if you use some part of Scalos prefs.
The crash also happens if you try to exit Wanderer, again it does not happen all the time !

Tested Scalos also on AROS One x86, again Scalos improved greatly, no difference from clean AROS.

About icons there is always the problem that Scalos "from its menu" can't fix icons automatically, you have to do it from Wanderer

"Browser Mode" on individual Volumes now works well, but you have to reboot the system to see the change !

What do you mean by that? What is "fix"?

I do not understand that either... just tested it and snapshot works

tested with the official win hosted version from Deadwood

Great now f.e. thumbnails prefs are there

I have also just updated my aros vision scalos 68k. Looks good. Prefs are working, no freezes anymore. And f.e. Thumbnails dialog is now visible in prefs

Is a problem that I had also reported in previous versions of Scalos, I made a small exhaustive video, used your basic version of AROS hosted Linux

Thanks for testing 68k version as well. I'm only testing x86 and x86_64 versions so it is good to know things work well also on m68k.

if you open scalos prefs and then menu you can edit the menu.

Amigasystem used "Cleanup"... if you look at it, it uses a plugin

Scalos:Plugins/Menu/Sorted_Cleanup.plugin

if you look in the files it does not exist

I'll added investigating this to the list.
