> Recent changes are King's Quest 4 updates from Guillaume Major.
> I will post the release announcement once it is out, but for now I am
> adding the most significant (or user visible) changes to the ChangeLog
> file. Please tell me if something is wrong or missing:
> - CoHR: Now supports COVDG control codes (Ken H.)
> - New MinTED - Minimalist Text Editor (Luis Antoniosi)
> - rb1773: Make 48 TPI floppy disks readonly in 96 TPI drives
> (Robert Gault and Gene Heskett)
Thank you, this bug could probably file for SS. :)
> - rbdesc/superdesc: Raise default SAS from $8 to $10 (Gene)
Helps keep a big file from using up all the FD.SEG's.
> - Gene's myram RAM disk driver renamed to MRAM and included
> on L2 disk images
> - Dragon: Fixed disk images (Tormod Volden)
> - Fixed ROM boot images (Tormod)
> - Added CoCo SDC driver (Boisy Pitre)
> - Added CoCo Deluxe port (Boisy)
> - King's Quest 4: Many updates (Guillaume Major)
> - New utils disk with Gene's bootlink and vfy utilities
> - Pacos9: Brought back to life (Tormod)
> - Major cleanup of Makefiles and build infrastructure (Tormod)
> - Everything now builds with lwtools (Tormod)
> - Most (all?) things in shape again after lwtools transition
> (Tormod, David Ladd, Bob Devries, Boisy)
> It is a bit unclear what is new since 3.2.9 since that one never was
> released properly. And too many changes to mention since 3.2.8...
> One question: For small disk images (utils etc), what is the preferred
> disk format? If there can be an agreement on that...
.dsk, in 35 track SS format for maximum compatibility.
