Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business
, are proud to present Hollywood 6.1. Hollywood 6.1 is a major update
with many new features and bug fixes. The most important new feature is that Hollywood 6.1 now comes with GUIs for Mac OS (x86 and PowerPC) and Linux (x86, PowerPC, ARM)
. Previously Hollywood could only be used from the command line on these systems. Starting with Hollywood 6.1 the Mac OS and Linux versions come with a native GUI which is identical to the GUI used in the Amiga version. Additionally, Hollywood plugins can now be linked into executables
compiled by Hollywood. Speaking of plugins, Hollywood 6.1 contains major extensions to the plugin interface which will be utilized by a soon to be released killer plugin
which has been three years in the making. This plugin (codename: Secret Weapon III
) will be the most powerful plugin in the history of Hollywood
and it will open up a whole new world of programming with Hollywood. And it will be released free of charge for all Hollywood users. So watch this space...
