Exomizer v2.0 released

February 2nd, 2011 No comments

Exomizer is a program that compresses files in a way that tries to be as efficient as possible but still allows them to be decompressed in environments where CPU speed and RAM are limited. For some popular 8-bit computers using 6502 compatible CPUs it can also generate executable files that decompress themselves in memory when run.

  • 2011-01-22: Exomizer v2.0 released

Changes since the 2.0 beta 7 release:

  • Fixed a bug in sfx decruncher setup where data was copied unnecessary.
  • Added the i_line_number symbol to be able to change the default line number of the basic line of the sfx decruncher.
  • Added various improvements and documentation of the desfx command.

A complete changelog is included in the zip file.

OS Contiki v2.5 RC1 Binary released

January 8th, 2011 2 comments

Contiki is a small, open source, highly portable, multitasking computer operating system developed for use on a number of memory-constrained networked systems ranging from 8-bit computers to embedded systems on microcontrollers, including sensor network motes.

The name Contiki comes from Thor Heyerdahl’s famous Kon-Tiki raft.

The Contiki 2.x contains only very little assembler coding and even less target-specific assembler coding. This allowed for easy porting to targets beside the C64 namely the C128 and Apple II. Porting to other cc65 targets wasn’t done due to missing Ethernet hardware.

The major changes are:

  • Support of the Atari 8-bit machines with the ethernet cart described on http://www.atari8ethernet.com
  • FTP client app (only download although UI suggests upload too)
  • Twitter client with OAuth workaround (using SuperTweet.net)
  • New high contrast color scheme for Contiki UI apps on the C64.
