David Schmidt has announced the release of the latest version of the ADTPro utility.Â Here’s what’s new:
Just a few little niceties this go-round:
Inspired by Sheldon Simms’ project to stay serial for not only booting but also disk serving, I combined Speediboot and the Virtual Serial Driver so that you can boot into the ProDOS BASIC interpreter with VSDrive active.Â No floppies required, and all makes, models, and serial devices that ADTPro supports work.Â The process is described here:
Since AppleCommander is an integral part of ADTPro now, I added a little command line invoker for the embedded AC jar.
Then there’s the thing I really wanted for myself: fixing the batch numbering scheme to start at 1 and not 0, and re-starting when the prefix name is changed.
Finally something that only the occasional person will need… you know who you are… floppy disks that don’t have a recognized filesytem will always be written in DOS physical order.
