What’s new for System 6.0.2

After 22 years, 2 months, 2 days and 2 hours since System 6.0.1 was released, this is a summary of the visible changes. There have been many bugs fixed and many features added that are not immediately visible–they will enable developers to create better future products.  Be sure to read the Shortcuts file on the SystemTools3 disk for more information.

Finder (see also Finder Help)

The list is FSTs now includes the RDOS 3.3 name.

You can navigate through the folders hierarchy with ‘Command-Up Arrow’.

Drivers

The Ethertalk driver is now included. This is the driver for the unreleased Ethernet for Appletalk card.

File System Translators (FSTs)

The HFS.FST bug is removed. Your HFS disks are now safe!

Some bugs from the PASCAL.FST were removed.

The DOS33.FST has been corrected.

Tools

The Font Manager bug is now squashed.

Some bugs in the Window Manager were removed.

QuickerGraph that accelerates some drawing routines is now included. This program is unfinished and your system may become unstable if you install it.

What’s next?

This is a proof-of-concept update. Updating the System Software can now be done! There are other bugs in the System, let’s correct them for a 6.0.3 update in a month or so…

Brutal Deluxe Software releases Merlin 32

Paris, January 6th, 2015 – Brutal Deluxe Sofware releases Merlin 32

Merlin 32 is a multi-pass Cross Assembler running under Windows targeting 8-bit processors in the 6502 series (such as 6502 and 65c02) and the 16 bit 65c816 processor.

It is compatible with Glen Bredon’s Merlin 16+ syntax, including support for Macros, Pre-processor, Logical Expressions, Conditional Operations, Variables, Loops, Local Labels…

It can build fixed position object code or relocatable executables (OMF v2.1) as we can find on 16-bit APPLE IIGS operating systems like ProDOS 16 or GS/OS (S16, EXE, CDA, NDA, FST, PIF, LIBRARY, TOOL…).

Merlin 32 has been successfully used to re-assemble classic Apple IIgs games and utilities such as Rastan, Sensei, Shuffle Puck Cafe, Final Assault, Lemmings, The Tinies, Cogito, Blockade, Convert 3200… without the need to modify the original source files.

Merlin 32 is part of the Brutal Deluxe’s Cross Development Tools Project, a full set of utilities available on Windows (and other) platforms to enable the creation of new Apple IIgs software : 65c816 Assembler, 65c816 Disassembler, 65c816 Simulator, Graphic File Converter, Resource Catcher…
