Gerard Putter has updated Virtual ][, the leading 8-bit Apple II emulator for Mac OS X to v6.3.5

Gerard’s announcement is attached:

The latest version of Virtual ][ contains a substantial improvement in the way Apple II interrupts are emulated, and corrects an error in the emulation of two 65C02 instructions (TSB and TRB). This enhances the compatibility; for example, the Apple II program “Publish It” now works fine.

What’s new in version 6.3.5

  • Improved emulation of Apple II interrupts; as a result, the program “Publish It” version 4 can now be used with the mouse.
  • Corrected an error in the emulation of several 65C02 instructions (particularly TSB and TRB). This enhances compatibility with Apple //e applications.
  • Relative mouse mode is now correctly restored from a saved state file. This was an omission in previous versions.
  • Fixed a few spelling errors in the Inspector and tool tips.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the text color on the Apple II screen to become white after clicking “Cancel” in the the configuration panel.
