General Development

Hollywood 6.0 has been released. Since I'm not so sure most of you know what it is, here's the official description.

Hollywood is a multimedia-oriented programming language that can be used to create graphical applications very easily. It was designed with the paradigm to make software creation as easy as possible in mind. Thus, Hollywood is suited for beginners and advanced users alike. Hollywood comes with an extensive function library (encompassing almost 700 different commands) that simplifies the creation of 2D games, presentations, and applications, to a great extent. It has been in development since 2002 and hence is today a very mature and stable software package.

I can mention Amiga games like Foundation, Napalm, WipeOut 2097 (Amiga Version), MYST (Amiga 68k version) to just name a few games. Then we have Deluxe Paint 5, Personal Paint, Digi Booster PRO, TVPaint, PageStream, iBrowse, Aweb etc to name a few Amiga 68k programs.

Well, he meant that it still feels like it is 1995...
Myst? Seriously?

Yes, but who is _impressed_ by that?

All-in-all don't take these things as offensive. The state of Amiga is quite good in comparison to that it does not have corporate backing, and for a decade it was available only a selected few hardware. Since both Aros and WinUAE matured, we do not really have any limit for preserving it to the future, and I am sure, even for 10 years from now there are going to be software released for it. Don't look over its limitations, but embrace them, and be happy that you can do so many things even with those limitations in place.
