There’s a new
release out today, version 1.16, which is an enhancement requested by Derek
Stewart over version 1.15. It now allows you to use your own background image
rather than the one I installed at version 1.13, a NASA image of Jupiter.
Issue 6 of the
QL Assembly eMagazine is now, finally, available for download.
Things are a
little different now. I’m hosting all the code in the eMagazine, as well as the
source (LaTeX) for the eMagazine itself on GitHUb. Each issue is available as a
“release”. Don’t worry, if you happen to go to the old download
location, you’ll see a message telling you where to go to get the latest issue.
You will most
likely be wanting the pdf and the “CODE.zip” links, unless you want
to see how the eMagazine is put together, in which case, feel freeto help
yourself to one or other of the “SourceCode” links.
Oliver Fink in Germany, a PDF of the Computer One Assembler software manual,
plus another page relating to the linker software, is available to download
from the Assembler section on my website:http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/asm/index.html
Thanks to a
successful appeal for copies of missing Prowess utilities, I’ve also been able
to add Pflist, Pwfile and Fsearch (thanks to Simon Balderson for the latter)
plus a more recent version of Pfdata (thanks to Bob Spelten jr.) to the Prowess
Page on my site at http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/prowess/index.html
for Q68, but also a new SSJOB command courtesy of Per Witte, who also extended
the JOB_NAME command to work in compiled programs. Marcel Kilgus contributed
updated QL-SD drivers, while Wolfgang Lenerz provided some improvements and bug
fixers for the Q68 and Q40/Q60.
Downloads of the
binaries and sources plus list of changes at http://www.wlenerz.com/smsqe/
Version 1.06 of
the SMSQ/E and SBASIC guide is now available to download from my website at http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/docs/ebooks/index.html
The manual may be
read online (HTML file) or downloaded in a variety of formats (including eBook
formats) from that page. The SMSQ/E operating system sources and binaries are
available to download free of charge from Wolfgang Lenerz’s site at http://www.wlenerz.com/smsqe/
brought you news of Johan Engdahl’s QL wifi interface:
Back in November, Johan sent the following news about it to the “Sinclair QL For Everyone” group on Facebook: “For those of you that has bought my QLwifi adapter, for QL as well as ZX Spectrum 128K/IF1, and for those of you that has not yet done so 🙂 “To ease your life with the adapter I´m in the progress of coding server and client applications for easy file transfer to/from your machine and other useful stuff. “To be able to support both Linux and Windows, for the server part, I´m coding portable C++ code, which will work on both platforms. “I´m hoping that first release would be available around X-mas / New Year. “Files for Linux and Windows will be binaries ready to run, for ZX it´ll be TAP and for QL it´ll be MDV image.” Johan has also announced he can supply 3D printed aftermarket QL riser legs (QL feet!) at €5 per pair of feet plus postage and packing, and also he’s created a 3D model of the MDV collar which, according to Sinclair, is a mandatory modification and is supposed to go under the rightmost screw on MDV2 to prevent the lid from touching the microdrive thus misaligning the head. He provided the .STL file to download from the Sinclair QL For Everyone group on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/30699392074/
