E-Maculation News: March, 2015
SoftMac Beta News
The SoftMac beta page was updated this month. It says (among other things)
“The tenth generation of our 680×0 emulation products Gemulator and SoftMac is now under development. Gemulator version 1.0 was first released at the 1992 Glendale Atari Fair. For the version 10.0 releases, high priority issues are being addressed, including:
Touch support for Surface Pro tablets. Video resolution fixes and support for screen rotation and dynamic resolution updates. Support for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Support for EmuTOS (the open source Atari TOS ROM clone). Faster performance optimized for Intel's latest "Broadwell" CPU micro-architecture.
From the functionality point of video, the 10.0 releases should be as compatible as earlier releases. The same disk images and ROM files supported by previous releases should continue to work.”

PearPC has moved from SourceForge to Github, and an experimental .6pre release is now available!
From the site:
Hopefully this makes merging patches easier. Additionally, I made the repository compile under clang and the assembler shipped with Mac OS X.
Get it here.
