Jack 3.2.1 Released – Hello Asynchronous Downloads

I am pleased to announce the release of version 3.2.1 of Jack for AmigaOS and Amiga-like operating system.

Please visit OS4Depot, Aminet, AROS Archives or MorphOS Files and check it out today.

What’s New?

The most significant change in this version is the introduction of asynchronous downloads in the App-Store.. asynchronous what?  This means you can now download more than one item at once or continue to use as normal without ‘blocking’ the interface.
This new version of Jack also sports an arexx port with (initially) a small selection of Arexx commands on offer.

What’s Fixed?

See the changelog.


Thanks for your continued support, I hope you enjoy this latest release.

Download Manager (Update)

A quick update on the progress of the alll-new singing and dancing Download Manager for Jack.

At present the Download Manager doesn’t allow for asynchronous downloads, this will come in the future when I’ve learnt some more about the HTTP Protocol, but for now just about everything is working and the next update of Jack will be available shortly – fingers crossed for the weekend.

Jack for AmigaOS, Jack for MorphOS, Jack for AROS, Jack for Classic….

Yeah thats right I’ve started porting Jack to the other Amiga-like OSes in the last couple of weeks and so far have most of it working under AROS, still a fair way to go mind.

I have set up a mailing list, if you want to Beta Test Jack under one of the ‘Other OSes’ please send an email to with ‘subscribe’ in the subject heading.

For the time being check out the increased number of options now available against each and every software released on OS4Depot.

Screenshot preview of the next upcoming version of Jack for AmigaOS.

Currently working on introducing asynhcronous downloads, in other words support for downloading multiple items at the same time.

Please comment and tell me what you think!
