Jack 4.7 now available

November 10, 2014 Leave a comment


I’ve been neglectful in the last few months in regard to updating this website with new information about Jack – but today I’d like to change that by announcing the release of version 4.7 on

This is a rather minor update which fixes a couple of things that have been drawn to my attention recently – it also includes the latest version of MUI Royale which was (very) importantly missing from the 4.6 update.


The changelog can be read here.

Jack 4.1 available now

November 28, 2013 Leave a comment


Let’s begin with the good news, a new version of Jack has been released today on OSdepot which fixes a small number of important issues all mentioned in the Change Log. This version also allows registered AppStore users to add their own reviews and comments on all software in the store and of course read those of other users.
Now to the bad news, still waiting for Andreas to release an update to the fatal crash which appeared in Hollywood thanks to the recent Kernel Update. All I can tell you at this stage is that the Hollywood function DownloadFile() is the cause of the DSI and that Andreas is working hard to try and fix the problem which affects all Hollywood applications that utilise this function

As always please feel free to leave comments on my website, bug reports over on the bug area at OS4Depot.

And finally do enjoy the new version.

Kernel Update

October 22, 2013 Leave a comment

The recent update of the AmigaOS Kernel has resulted in some Hollywood applications becoming unstable.

The issue has already been reported to the developer of Hollywood, although it is not exactly known at this stage what it is that is causing the “DSIs” to appear.

Hopefully a patch will be out sooner rather than later.

Screen Capturing improvements

February 7, 2012 Leave a comment

For some time Jack’s Screen Capturing function has been ticking me so I decided to revisit this part of the application and add in some improvements I wanted to include for a while now.  I trust you will like these improvements.

  • Now you will be prompted if you want to Crop an area of the screen (before entering the image editor).
  • Whilsting cropping you get a useful Zoom window in the bottom-right of the screen for pixel perfect cropping.
