GSport 0.31 released

The GSport team has announced a new release with significant improvements! Below is David Schmidt’s posting via CSA2.

The GSport team has been busy lately. Peter Neubauer’s AppleTalk emulation is the star of this release – making GSport the only modern emulator with this capability. Christopher Mason enhanced printer emulation capabilities further with a virtual ImageWriter II or LQ in slot 1. Several other items and fixes are aggregated as well.

GSport is a derivative of Kent Dickey’s KEGS Apple IIgs emulator.

Version 0.31 – 6/22/2014

New functionality:

  • Added AppleTalk networking emulation with bridging to EtherTalk (See: http://gsport.sourceforge.net/appletalk.html)
  • Added Imagewriter LQ printer emulation (more documentation coming – printing is highly configurable)
  • Added clipboard text paste capability (OSX, Windows)
  • Emulated serial ports are individually configurable as either IP or pass-through to real hardware ports
  • Apple II Pi build improvements

Bug fixes:

  • IN#1 and IN#2 now trigger the incoming IP port to listen when using IP simulated serial ports; previously, only PR#1 or PR#2 did
  • Fixed crash when parallel.rom is missing
  • Fix for real joysticks: unless the joystick is moving, GSport sets the values to zero
  • http://gsport.sourceforge.net

AppleWin moves to GitHub

Update your bookmarks. Tom Charlesworth announced today that AppleWin (the leading 8-bit Apple II emulator for Windows) has moved to it’s new repository on GitHub.

Hi,

Berlios has finally been closed (for OSS hosting), meaning that the AppleWin project is no longer accessible on the Berlios site.

I have been gradually migrating AppleWin over to GitHub. The move still isn’t 100% complete, but IMO it’s good enough now so that I can announce it here.

The new project URL is:
https://github.com/AppleWin

Releases are here:
https://github.com/AppleWin/AppleWin/releases

Issues (bug, enhancements and questions) can be accessed and raised here:
https://github.com/AppleWin/AppleWin/issues?state=open

NB. All the old issues and features have been migrated over.

I’m am still getting up to speed on GitHub and git, so bear with me during this initial period.

Tom
