I have today updated a few items on my website, and released a blast-from-the-past…

SAM2 goes to v2.0.5. This is a very minor bug fix.

Spectrum goes to v2.5.4. A bug was fixed, and a couple of minor adjustments were made. More importantly, Spectrum is now released as a stand-alone bootable 2mg disk image, that can be booted and used “as is”. A new Installer is provided on the disk, which allows Spectrum to be installed wherever you like, and for the required System files to be installed on any bootable device, not only to the current boot disk.

The three original Spectrum PDF manuals have now been bundled together as one zipped file, available as a legacy download, and the three manuals have now been reworked, so they are no longer split into before v2.5.3, and after sections.

Finally, I have delved into my archives, and resurrected an 8-bit telecommunications program that was commercially sold in the UK back in 1987. You can download both Gazelle, its PDF manual, and the updates listed above, from my website: http://www.speccie.co.uk
