TITLE

    Aminet CD 6


AUTHOR

    Urban D. Mueller  (umueller at wuarchive.wustl.edu)


CONTENTS

    Aminet CD 6 contains over 1 gigabyte of freely distributable software.
    The newest file included is dated Apr 28th. The space is used as 
    follows (uncompressed sizes):

      520M of software newer than Aminet CD 5
      500M of demos
       20M of top downloads

    These consist of:
      1800 demos
      1300 tools
       350 mods
       140 pics
       120 games

    The demos were collected from various sources besides Aminet, and almost 
    none of them have appeared on previous Aminet CDs.

    The disks also contains all Amiga Report magazines issued so far.


ACCESS SOFTWARE

    Amigaguide based user interface, allows easy unpacking and viewing 
    using a single mouse click.

    Extensive search facilities. Finds words in descriptions or readmes,
    and outputs matches as an index that allows direct viewing.

    New access features for the following categories of files:

    - Demos: All demos have been tested. Separate lists of best, good and 
      compatible demos. All demos startable from those indices. Another 
      demo index is the Amiga Demo List with extensive info about almost 
      all demos on the CD. It is sorted by demo group. Finally there is a 
      program called BootTool that allows you to view demos right after a
      reboot without much fuss, so you can quickly look at the demos that 
      force you to reboot.

    - Mods: All of the modules are listed in indices sorted by music style 
      and rating. There's also an index sorted by module author and the
      possibility to randomly play music of a certain style.

    - Docs: All Amiga Report electronic magazines that have appeared so far
      are on this CD, including a utility that allows you to search for any
      text in any AR article very quickly.

    - Personal: Aminet CD 6 allows you to easily create an index of your
      favourite files on the CD.

    - German: All the files (except demos) on Aminet CD 6 have a German
      description. Also included is an index of the SaarAG disks up to
      840.

    Other improvements are the possibility to use file requesters to
    set extraction and tool paths, and 'Clones' which are little programs 
    that, when started, unpack and run/view a file from the Aminet CD.
