CBM-Command v2.3 Final

October 18th, 2013 No comments

CBM-Command is a disk manager for the Commodore 64 / Commodore 128 / Commodore VIC20 / PET and Commodore C16 computers. It is written like Norton Commander or Midnight Commander, but is much simpler due to the target platforms. Both the C128/C64/VIC20/C16/PET have their own native version of the application.

Release Notes – Version 2.3 Final

This is the final release for CBM-Command Version 2.3. What happened to version 2.2? Well, cc65 went through several breaking changes and I wanted to make a clear delineation that this version of CBM-Command isn’t a simple fix and recompile of the last version 2.2.

New Features:

  • Provides Side-By-Side panels or Top-And-Bottom panels on 40-column systems.
  • Batch disk image creation.
  • User can select drive or partition number.
  • The disks have a little BASIC-language program that can update your configuration files.

Known Issues:

  • It can trigger the write-and-replace bug.
  • It can’t create or write back D80 and D82 images.
  • The REL-file copier doesn’t truncate old target files that have the same record size as the new file.
  • It will try to copy DEL files if they are selected.
  • Errors don’t stop batch operations; the file is skipped.

New Features:

  • (C64) Added double-buffering when displaying the directory in a panel. This eliminates the flickering that users were experiencing when scrolling through long directories.

Changes:

  • (All Machines) Changed the algorithm for displaying the directory in a panel. This greatly speeds up the scrolling of long directories, especially on the C128.

Known Issues:

  • None at this time.

CBM-Command v2.0 Release Candidate

January 24th, 2011 No comments

CBM-Command is a disk manager for the Commodore 64 / Commodore 128 / Commodore VIC20 and Commodore C16 computers. It is written like Norton Commander or Midnight Commander, but is much simpler due to the target platforms. Both the C128/C64/VIC20/C16 have their own native version of the application.

Release Notes – Version 2.0 Release Candidate – 2011-01-14

New Features:

  • Whole Disk Copying – Hotkey = “O” – This will copy a whole disk from one like drive to another like drive (ie. 1541 to 1541, 1571 to 1571) and also will copy a 1541 to a 1571.

Changes:

  • Bug fixes

Known Issues:

  • Deleting batches of files with more than 30 files does not work as expected as only the first 30 files are deleted. This is because of the way that deleting files alters the disk directory which prevents looping over the whole directory and selectively deleting files. Unfortunately I see no way around this as it’s impossible to cache the names of all the files to delete without some kind of temporary storage. This issue will not stop the release of Version 2.0.

CBM-Command v2.0 Beta 2

January 1st, 2011 No comments

CBM-Command is a disk manager for the Commodore 64 / Commodore 128 / Commodore VIC20 and Commodore C16 computers. It is written like Norton Commander or Midnight Commander, but is much simpler due to the target platforms. Both the C128/C64/VIC20/C16 have their own native version of the application.

Release Notes – Version 2.0 Beta 2 – 2011-01-01

Changes:

  • (64, 128, Plus/4) Changed the timing code back to version 1.7 because the clock() function in cc65 does not reflect accurate timing.
  • (VIC, PET) The time(NULL) function is not available on these targets and thus had to be removed.
  • Help Hot-Key Fixed – Now when you press either F1 or H you get the help file (if the CBM-Command disk is in the drive you started CBM-Command from).
  • Updated Help File – the new help file by popmilo has been incorporated into the disk.
  • Directory navigation hot keys fixed.

Known Issues:

  • None – if you have a bug to report, PLEASE do so to the CBM-Command website or mailing list.

CBM-Command v2.0 Beta 1

November 26th, 2010 No comments

CBM-Command is a disk manager for the Commodore 64 / Commodore 128 / Commodore VIC20 and Commodore C16 computers. It is written like Norton Commander or Midnight Commander, but is much simpler due to the target platforms. Both the C128/C64/VIC20/C16 have their own native version of the application.

Release Notes – Version 2.0 Beta 1 – 2010-11-25

New Features:

  • REL file copying between devices that support REL files.
  • D71 disk image support – now you can create and write dual sided disk images with a 1571 drive.
  • Configurable Hot Keys – Don’t like the default keys? You can redefine them yourself for version 2.0 using the Configuration program.

Changes:

  • Almost all code optimized for space savings to allow more features.
  • Issuing a drive command is now done on the main screen instead of in a popup box.
  • When renaming a file, the directory remembers where you were so you don’t have to scroll to the newly named file any longer.
  • Changed disk image writes to reposition the buffer pointer in the drive instead of rolling the data in CBM-Command which freed up a buffer and some memory in the main program.
  • Old keyboard shortcuts that required using the C= key now use the SHIFT key instead.

Known Issues:

  • Documentation is way out of date. New documentation is being written but is not yet ready for this release.
  • * Some of the default keys have changed. If you cannot find your old keyboard shortcut then go into the Configuration program and redefine the function as you need. These changes will be documented in the new version of the docs.

Changes:

  • Other bug fixes that I cannot remember right now.

Release Notes – 2010-07-13 – Version 1.0.3/1.0.4

New Features:

  • (ALL) New color picker for the configuration program
  • (64, 128, PLUS 4) 1581 Disk Image (D81) Support

Changes:

Known Issues:

  • (VIC 20) Many of the keyboard shortcuts on the left side of the keyboard do not work under VICE. After speaking with members of the VICE team they are pretty sure this is a problem in the GETIN kernel routine which is used by cc65. I would greatly appreciate it if someone with a real VIC can verify that the keys do not work on real hardware before I bring the problem up in the cc65 forums.
  • (Plus 4) Viewing a text file crashes the program.
