AMIGA alive software: xiffview 0.4 (update)

IFF ILBM imageviewer xiffview for Linux computers has a couple of new features, one of which is a command mode that allows you to extract image data as C code for sprite creation.

If you're a C programmer and want to create sprites with your program, this might be interesting for you. xiffview now has a command that takes a couple of arguments, namely x and y coordinates, height, bitmap numbers and color indices, and saves image data from that region of the image to a C code file for use in your program.

Our AmiWest venue is back to business as usual. It seems that everyone is having a meeting now and using "our" venue to do it! Of course, we don't own the hotel but we do want our AmiWest attendees to get the best room rates available. Please book your AmiWest room as soon as possible. This enables us to increase the size of our room "block" if needed before attendees at other events take up all the space. Just go to our reservations page for both phone and online reservations. You can reserve now with no prepayment needed! Just pay at the end of your stay.
