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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
