CLOANTO SOFTWARE UPDATE


FILES BEING UPDATED

  - AExplorer (Amiga side)


INSTALLATION

  - Automatic (requires Installer to be available on system)


DESCRIPTION

This update set transforms any "AExplorer" v. 1.x to 6.x Amiga program
file to the corresponding version 8.0.1.0 file. This update only
upgrades the server side of the software, i.e. the Amiga side.

This version of the Amiga (server) side software is compatible with
all clients from v. 1.x to v. 8.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 that is fully
compatible with the original (AmiTCP/IP) "bsdsocket.library".


HISTORY

Following are some release notes for the Amiga (server) side of Amiga
Explorer. Changes on the PC (client) side of the software are not
described here. For additional details and intermediate versions that
only had changes on the client side, please refer to the changelog on
the Windows side of Amiga Explorer.

Version 1.0 was the initial public release (November 9, 1997).

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 large Amiga files, and introduced support for features to be
used by future Amiga Explorer client versions.

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 solved a case in which a blank or "bad" disk was not
available for formatting.

Versions 3.5 introduced a new PC-to-Amiga automatic setup options, and
a smaller default packet size (512 instead of 4096 bytes) to better
support slower systems.

Version 4.0 introduced a new UNIT ToolType or command line option to
run multiple instances (e.g. one in serial mode and one in TCP/IP
mode). Also addressed an issue whereby Kickstart ROM size would
sometimes be processed as 512 KB instead of 256 KB (pre-2.0 ROMs).

Version 6.0 introduced enhanced compatibility and support for newer OS
versions, as well as for AmigaOS 4.0 and MorphOS.

Version 8.0.1.0 introduces new functionality for software and operating
system version checks and for future client-originated updates. Once
these are implemented, Amiga-side patch releases like this one could
become less necessary.


NOTES

Cloanto has been creating Amiga software since 1986. Thank you for
supporting our uninterrupted development work.

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 free update is hereby licensed to be applied only to the original
commercial program files published by Cloanto. For additional technical
