CLOANTO SOFTWARE UPDATE


FILES BEING UPDATED

  - AExplorer (Amiga side)


INSTALLATION

  - Automatic (requires Installer to be available on system)


DESCRIPTION

This update set transforms the "AExplorer" v. 1.x, 2.x and 3.x Amiga
program file to the corresponding version 3.02 file. This update only
upgrades the server side of the software, i.e. the Amiga side.

Some of the very first Amiga Forever 2.0 units shipped had a floppy
disk which was duplicated before the CD-ROM went into production. On
these disks, the "AExplorer" program file is functionally identical
with the final file on CD, but has a few differences in the file
itself. If this upgrade procedure displays a message indicating that
the Amiga Explorer 2.0 program file cannot be upgraded, then please
install and upgrade the "AExplorer" file from the CD-ROM ("AF_Disk"
directory), rather than the one on the floppy disk.

This version of the Amiga side (server) software is compatible with
all clients v. 1.0 to 3.x, and is designed to offer current levels of
functionality to future clients as well.

This version, like all others, works in either serial (null-modem) or
TCP/IP modes. TCP/IP functionality requires a library fully compatibile
with the original (AmiTCP/IP) "bsdsocket.library", such as is provided
by AmiTCP/IP itself, Miami, or the TCP/IP stack which is part of UAE.


HISTORY

Version 1.0 was the first version released.

Version 1.1 introduced increased performance, and solved a bug whereas
in certain configurations, after a timeout, the Amiga side of the
software could crash. It also fixed a potential problem with certain
serial port settings, where the Amiga side could send more data than
the client could handle. Version 1.1 introduced a new option to create
a log file, useful to track and report problems.

Version 2.0 provided additional functionality, used by version 2.0 and
higher of Windows clients.

Version 2.02 solved a possible timeout problem when deleting and
moving very large Amiga files, and introduced support for features
to be used by future versions of Amiga Explorer clients.

Version 3.0 offered extended client functionality, and in particular
support for hardfiles (HDF) and double-click on Amiga data files. The
server (Amiga) side remained unchanged from version 2.02.

Version 3.01 solved a software failure problem when setting file dates
on Amiga OS 1.2 and 1.3 systems. It also corrected the fact that floppy
disks could not be formatted while validating.

Version 3.02 solves a case in which a blank or "bad" disk was not
available for formatting.
