Thanks Rajah, your work is much appreciate! I could not use Atari today without apps like Litchi.

^---^ seconded.
Between WongCK and yourself, we have good apps useable in the modern age.

Thank you!

And there is a third party program which install some GEMDOS-MiNTNet calls for MagiCNet.

The program should copy to the APPS folder. It needs Trapper!

Thanks for your thanks :)

Polarssl.ldg release 5: blog or directly
- built on PolarSSL version 1.3.12
- add: ‘MagX’ + ‘SCKM’ cookies in TCP layer type auto-detection, if found then MiNTnet API is used (developpers should call force_tcp_layer() before ldg_ssl_init() to avoid bad auto-detections).

Only the POLARSSL.LDG file is changed in the archives. I don't know how, but the LDG file is smaller.
Update is not necessary if your SSL connections are working OK.
Fixes from the previous release are described on mbedTLS site: 1.3.11 and 1.3.12

I discovered a new 1.3.13 has arrived. Next LDG version is planned for December.

KK Commander 1.6: blog or directly
- add: window option to decode filenames (ATARI ST, ISO-8859-1, UTF-8), selected charsets are saved in preferences file. When copying, moving or extracting, names are transcoded if charsets are differents.
- add: additionnal partitions (1:\ to 6:\).
- add: scrollable input field in infos dialog, if long names are enabled.
- add: display permissions column (MiNT only).
- add: misc option to keep permissions for copy/move files (MiNT only).
- add: UTF-8 conversion for PKZIP entries filenames (if bit 11 of general purpose bit flag is set).
- fix: in PKZIP headers: correct values in made by, version needed.
- fix: set default access permission when extracting (MSA and PKZIP).
- fix: discard very big files (> 2GB) from directory, info, copy/move, unzip.
- new: if saved paths are blank, starting on partitions list instead of KKcmd location.
- fix: existing file choice was not remembered in the saved preferences file.
- fix: « . » missing before *.APP files display.
- fix: RSC optimizations (some objects TEXT->STRING).

The new features are for enhanced systems such as MiNT, I upgraded it mostly to be at ease on my FireBee. Charset decoding is for long names (VFAT), found in PKZIP files or host filesystem.

Hi Rajah,
is it posible to somehow abort transfer in Litchi?

I mistakenly start to copy quite a big file (22MB) but I am afraid to kill Litchi process because I am afraid that it will corrupt FAT partition.


btw Litchi does not like memory protection under MiNT? It crash when I try to connect to FTP server...

- if you have enough RAM (TT-RAM is used, take care to have the latest version of Litchi), then the whole file is downloaded into RAM, then written on disk. So it's safe to kill Litchi while downloading. If you have not enough RAM, Litchi warns it in its console window and writing is made during the download. Here, it's less safe, though I often killed my Litchi during this type of transfer (MegaST 4 MB RAM, MagiC + STinG) with no effect on the disk.

Good practice is to use a temp partition, where downloads are targeted, where you can also uncompress the archives.

- Litchi is tested with memory protection on Lars's setup. I can't test is myself, but it's MiNT MP compatible. I would guess the crash is due to the GlueSTick part, in the resolver() function. Maybe there's a bug in Litchi if the FTP server name is wrong or not found. I'll investigate.

one offtopic question: for Litchi to use TT-RAM, tt-ram flag must be set on file OR Litchi regardless on tt-ram flag will use TT-RAM?
- This is general question: can Atari application override tt-ram file-flag settings?

Rajah Lone wrote:Good practice is to use a temp partition, where downloads are targeted, where you can also uncompress the archives.

I will do that.

hm. My MiNT setup is broken! And other application crashes!! Let me first repair or reinstall MiNT before you spent your time on investigation!!

Yes they can. Applications can explicitly allocate ST- or TT-ram as needed using Mxalloc(). Allocations made using Malloc() allocate memory based on the flags in the executable header.
Ain't no space like PeP-space.

Litchi uses Mxalloc() with TT-RAM preference flag. So you don't have to modify the program flags.

Litchi 1.3F: blog or directly
- fix: while download, if conflict name and choice for other name, this new name could be blank if period and extension were missing.

I don't think people uses this 'get other name' if conflict name when downloading. Thus update is optional.


Polarssl.ldg release 6: blog or directly
- built on PolarSSL version 1.3.15
- updated Polarssl.ca (from Mozilla’s ca-bundle.crt 10-28-2015)

Update is optional: if SSL/TLS is working on your setup, no need to update. With this release, I got an alert dialog for certificates verification, if you encounter this dialog, click ok + definetly.


KK Commander 1.6D: blog or directly
- fix: RSC and interface for 320*200 lowres.
- add: if several selected items, « add to archive » option in context menu.
- add: can abort safely zipping process by clicking ‘Cancel’.
- add: if selected zip file, « extract » (to folder) option in context menu.
- fix: if conflict name, problem in getting other name if « . » was missing.
- fix: informations dialog, renaming didn’t take care of encoding.
- fix: redundant code, reducing program size.

About PKZIP compression in KKcmd wrote:1. double window method (classic):
- create empty zip file.
- browse the .ZIP contents as if it was a folder, UTF-8 encoded names supported.
- add files from the other window. if a same filename, the old zipentry is deleted, replaced by the new one.
- extract files to the other window.

2. inside window method (new, like in MacOSX Finder, for lazy users, deflate.ldg must be installed):
- select one or several files and folders, then right-click for context pop-up, with 'add to archive' option. If one item selected, then it's the same name + zip extension. If several items, then it's called 'archive.zip'.
- select a *.ZIP file, then right-click for context pop-up, with 'extract' option. A folder named by zipfile name is created and populated with all uncompressed zip entries.

Tanks again for supporting and making life with Atari much easier and enjoyable!

I just wonder... do you have statistic: how many people download ColdFire (FireBee) and how many download MC68K versions of yours software...? I ask since KKCommander and Litchi are "must have" apps on todays Ataris... :cheers:

Thanks for your kind words.
No statistics: downloads numbers are unkown. I prefer not to track this kind of things.

Troll 1.8D: blog or directly
- fix: possible crash if destroying message in Trash or SMTP Sent Box.
- fix: unselection in Trash was not effective.
- fix: with POP3 server, if remote message big and available RAM low, did not retreive the message but wronly erased it anyway.
- add: with POP3 server, remote box, display too big messages for RAM with grey font.
- fix: wrong display in the internal editor, when backspace pressed from second character of a line.
- fix: slashes and antislashes removed in filenames built from message-ID (now can show some html mails in the browser).
- chg: show recipient instead of sender in IMAP Sent and Drafts folders.
- chg: filter recipient instead of sender in IMAP Sent and Drafts folders.
- fix: message header deselection when new message is created.

Thanks erOS for his bugreport and suggestions.

Sorry about the rare updates. I have currently other and funnier projects. Hope to resume Troll's upgrade late 2016.

Hi Rajah, I love your applications. One thing I would request which might not be too hard to implement would be to use ssl nntp server. Thanks!

Thanks.
I thought NNTPS support was a bit useless (possible but rare in France). The difficulty is to find a usenet SSL server, but easy to implement. In the TODO list. May appear in an update instead of an upgrade.

Troll 1.8E: blog or directly
- add: secure connection for Usenet (NNTP over SSL/TLS, NNTP with STARTTLS)
- fix: POP3 listing: reverse order option is not applied (too complicated).
- fix: POP3 filters: could loose email if target local folder didn’t exist.
- fix: POP3 filters: discard body analysis if transfer encoding is Base64.
- fix: POP3 retreive: deletion after retreive is discarded if number of retreived messages is less than expected.
- fix: if server or local box was removed, related messages weren’t deleted.
- fix: POP3, was not overwriting files for newly received messages.
- fix: Base64 contents wasn’t decoded if charset is not supported.
- fix: internal editor, unwanted scroll with Return key at end of text.
- fix: internal editor, Backspace and Delete keys at end of text.

SSL is now available with usenet, but if you are forced to use it with your nntp sever, choose a weak ciphersuites and SSL 3.0 or TLS 1.0: opening and closing are numerous with newsgroup management.

@arf: thanks, but it's a bit late. Already tested with news.aioe.org, which provides an option for SSL/TLS connections. See changelog in 1.8E version.
