Eric Shepherd has announced the release of version 3.0.1 of Sweet16, the Apple IIgs emulator for Mac OS X. This release fixes a few bugs in the KansasFest-launched version 3.0, and adds one new feature to the debugger. Some highlights of the changes include:

  • Full-screen mode now works on Macs with Retina Display.
  • Arrow keys no longer “stick” when using certain software that accessed the keyboard at a low level; this includes Wolfenstein 3D, for example.
  • Clicking on a Sweet16 window to bring it to the foreground now also ensures that the clicked window is focused.
  • Apple IIgs alerts displayed at shut down time no longer have buttons that cause the emulator to quit.
  • The debugger now offers a “Break” button, which immediately halts the computer and starts single-stepping mode.
  • The Sweet16 application is now code-signed with Shepherd’s Apple Developer ID, for your computing protection.

Shepherd notes that it’s necessary to install updated versions of the “SweetDupe” and “SweetPrinter” extensions included with the software in order to make all of these fixes work. The user guide accessible through the application’s Help menu explains how to do this.
