LisaEm 1.2.2 Released (bugfixes)

LisaEm 1.2.2 has been released. As usual, it can be downloaded from http://lisaem.sunder.net/downloads.html This version is mostly bug fixes instead of features.

VIA and printing bugs have been addressed, as well as cleaning up the code to allow compiling with Unicode enabled versions of wxWidgets, which is important for Linux distributions, and the version of wxWidgets included with OS X Leopard.

It is no longer necessary to manually flush print jobs, though you still can. LisaEm now times printer output. If there's no activity to a printer for 10* seconds, it will close the print job. If you are sending LisaEm printouts to a PDF or PostScript file, it is still important not to print out several jobs from within Lisa Office System at the same time as LisaEm will see them as a single large job. (This doesn't matter if you're printing to paper, or images.)

There are still some minor bugs in the ImageWriter emulation - the page size isn't quite exactly what LOS expects it to be, so multipage jobs tend to move the start of the page by several pixels.

I'm also cleaning up the Generator CPU code so that it can become its own library, and will do the same for the ImageWriter code so that they, along with libdc42 can be used in other emulation projects (i.e. for example by Apple II, or Macintosh emulators.)

Other bugs may still, of course, exist, if you find any, please let me know so that they can be fixed in future releases.

(* The 10 second value is relative to running the virtual Lisa at 5MHz, running it at higher throttle values will speed up the waiting time.)

--- 1.2.2 Release ------------------------------------------------------------

2007.11.11 - changed printing so that it auto-flushes print jobs.  Printing
            works but the page size is slightly off so it tends to not line
            up properly when more than one page is printed.

2007.11.10 - cleaning up build.sh script + source code

2007.11.08 - fixed slot preferences - browse buttons between high/low ports
            were swapped.

          - fixed parallel port u/l assignments - opposite from what LOS uses

2007.11.02 - more via6522.c cleanup/fixes.

2007.10.18 - Renamed Profile menu to Parallel Port as it's more accurate

2007.10.15 - cleaning up Generator code so as to build it as its own library

2007.10.01 - looking into cleaning up unicode incompatibility bugs, rewrote
            bunches and bunches of string routines and fixed up some idiotic
            char * <-> wxString gymnastics.

2007.09.25 - Looking into via6522 bugs for MacWorks and Xenix,
            no luck there yet
If you'd like to support this project, you can do so by sending me something from my Amazon wish list. (Used books and DVD's are perfectly fine with me.) The trains are for my kid. :) http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/14EOBF86ARMDT

Cool project, sunder!

I was reading about your frankenmac using the IIcx motherboard, and was wondering if you still had it? I'm a big IIcx fan and am still looking for a working IIcx motherboard to replace my broken one.

I still have the IIcx hackintosh, but I'm not sure I want to part with it, or for that matter if it even still works. :)
