Updates:

OS 3.9 with AWeb-II v3.4SE and the v3.3-3.4 update patch! (Dec./2000)

The new Amiga OS3.9 package just released includes AWeb-II v3.4SE. Initial copies of OS3.9 did not include some of the additional language catalogs for AWeb as they were not ready when the first CDs were pressed. These catalogs are now ready and for those customers we are making the archive available as a separate file for download. It can be found in the Language Translations section of this page click here.

DO NOT use this with a full version of AWeb, you would loose access to most of the docs, it is ONLY for the limited Special Edition.

Also, for those customers that have purchased a full version of AWeb v3.x or the upgrade package for v3.3SE, we are pleased to release a free update patch to v3.4. Simply click on the link below to download the archive.

Requirements for AWeb-II

The following hardware and software is required in order to install and use AWeb-II v3.x:

  • Workbench / Kickstart 3.0, 3.1, or above. AWeb-IISE requires OS 3.5 or 3.9.
  • Approximately 5 MB of free hard disk space for installation of the software, and 5-10 MB of free space for disk caching unless you have a lot of spare RAM.
  • 4+ Megs of fast RAM, 1-2 Megs of chip RAM. Less than 1 Meg of chip RAM may make image loading difficult or impossible.
  • A working TCP/IP stack, either Miami, AmiTCP, AS-255, I-Net 225, or other suitable software. AWeb supports MiamiSSL and AmiSSL for secure transfer.
  • The installation of internal AWeb image plugins (recommended as these support progressive/animated image display) or appropriate GIF, JPEG/JFIF, PNG, 24bit, and other datatypes as required. These may be obtained from Aminet in the util/dtype directory. Other external players for various audio/video/animation formats can also be found on Aminet.
  • The current recommended datatypes are:
    • ZGIF version 39.18
    • akJFIF version 43.xxx
    • akPNG version 43.xxx
    • For CyberGraphics systems, use the latest V43 picture.datatype.
    • For Picasso96 systems, use the picture.datatype included in P96.
    • AMS archive, including support for .au sound files and improved picture.datatype. ONLY those systems without graphics cards that have not upgraded to OS3.5/3.9 should use this picture.datatype.

Upgrading from Older Versions of AWeb

We regret to say that supplies of the v2.x to v3.x upgrade package for AWeb-II have now run out after more than 3 years and this option has therefore been withdrawn.

Users of a demo version of AWeb-II can purchase the full commercial version from various dealers worldwide, or direct from AmiTrix. Contact us via email at (webmaster@amitrix.com) for the current dealer closest to you. Remember to specify your location. For direct orders, see below for further information.

Upgrading from Other Browsers

Upgrading to AWeb-II is easy for users of other Amiga browser programs. AWeb-II will automatically recognize the TCP/IP stack you are using. If you are upgrading from IBrowse, AWeb-II is able to read your old hotlist directly. If you are upgrading from another browser which stores its hotlist as an HTML document, AWeb-II will be able to read it.
