Now I am asking for your creativity..
What kind of development (Aros related ) could be added to the project.

How about full memory protection?

I am semi-surprised that nobody has pointed out that using a shared memory OS for anything involving cryptocurrencies is a disaster waiting to happen.

The idea to run a fundamentally insecure OS / middleware on top of what is otherwise considered to be a fairly secure platform like Linux is comparable to installing a giant safe only to then drill a sizable hole in its door so you can see what is inside. For recreational usage scenarios, this does not matter too much but when money is at stake, things change.

I understand that you have been playing it fast and loose with the safety of your users (unencrypted transmissions of user names and passwords, for instance), but when you are marketing cryptocurrencies and wallets, you really should be more considerate.

I am writing this with the best of intentions, by the way.

install your preferred linux (i use lubuntu but maybe ubuntu inself or debian as such improved since).

install vmware tools to your guest to drag and drop data and share clipboard between windows host and linux vm, (important for convenience).

within linux, here are instructions how to build it:
http://aros.sourceforge.net/documentation/developers/compiling.php

and my additional info in post #3:

http://aros-exec.org/modules/newbb/vi ... hp?topic_id=10828&forum=2

its basically seting up necessary packages (note youll need proper version of flex 2.5.35 for few things like owb and grub2 but it depends if you want to build these at all) simple configuration command and make (eventually make bootiso).

you can test aros on:
1. hosted (linux and mingw under windows),
2. within vm(ware) (player), (youll need to install it from bootiso)
3. within qemu emulation, (youll need to install it from bootiso)
4. on a dedicated machine, (youll need to install it from bootiso)

hope that helps.

Just to provide some feedback from someone who had actually given this a try.

I followed your instructions with the latest Lubuntu. Right away, I had to install a few additional things that were not mentioned. When the compilation failed after over an hour, I concluded there were more productive uses of my free time :/

@ Georg

Thanks. I meant to add (hosted or virtualized) "on Windows".

(WE = whoever gets that part working first and this part is important enough to be a collective effort to get that part working for us and benefits us not just AROS/IcarosDesktop but also those on non-x86 systems like PPC Amiga platforms, MorphOS, etc.)

AROS, MorphOS and AOS all use somewhat different APIs for 3D graphics.

Anyway, leopard-webkit, which is based on a fairly recent Webkit version, does provide WebGL on old MacOS releases for PowerPC hardware. I tested this a while ago and it does work for simple WebGL demos at least.

That said, in terms of overall performance, this is more interesting for AROS. In theory at least. In practice, a lot of the existing users run AROS hosted or virtualized and lack proper access to 3D hardware acceleration so WebGL would be of little use to them.

Still, any improvements you can do add to Odyssey would be welcome I am sure.

You did not contribute to aros
You did not give any money for bounties as far as I know

You are mistaken.

I just read the full thread (more or less), propably cdimauro did not improve the situation but he was not the only one

Please feel free to be more specific.

perhaps leopard webkit engine mentioned by a siegel does better job.

As mentioned, leopard-webkit uses Apple Quicktime rather than ffmpeg.

In fact, Odyssey on AROS might behave differently as well because it uses a different version of ffmpeg, which might have issues not present in other releases.

Odyssey is not slow at all compared to other browsers. It is more a matter of using native gfx drivers that will speed scrolling etc. up a lot.

If there was a developer willing to accelerate Cairo and / or implement GPU acceleration for CSS animations, that would be worth supporting for sure.

i cannot watch youtube videos with it though. the embedded player starts the audio starts to play, but the picture remains black and after a while audio also stops. no crashes though. this of course needs to be investigated. however i would be amazed if this was just working fine out of the box, especially condidering all the codec updates since i dont even know when..

There are no codec updates that need to be considered. Thanks to widespread adoption of hardware video decoding, these things are thankfully very stable.

YouTube videos play just fine with leopard-webkit which utilitizes a version of Quicktime from 2009 or so for video decoding. They also work fine with Odyssey v1.23 from 2013, for instance.
