1.28.6.0 - 2 Jun 2019

  • [Bug #651] Cycle-accurate interrupts:
    • Interrupts sources are checked after every opcode (full-speed after every 40 opcodes).
    • 6522 TIMERs in free-running mode now accounts for the underflowed cycles when resetting the count.

1.28.5.0 - 6 Apr 2019

  • [Change #631] Improvements for the RGB AppleColor card:
    • Relax the video-mode precondition to just ignore if VF_MIXED (previously required HIRES on) for Apple II Desktop.
    • Changing from DHGR B&W mode to HGR remains in B&W (color burst is off).
    • For '50% scan lines', don't blend in NTSC B&W mode, as this was inconsistent with the RGB colour rendering.
  • [Change #633] Improvements for the RGB AppleColor card:
    • Improved the video-mode precondition to ignore if 80COL ($C00C/D) occurs before DHIRESON ($C05F) for Renegade.
    • Support new switch -rgb-card-invert-bit7 to invert bit7 for Dragon Wars.

1.28.4.0 - 16 Mar 2019

1.28.3.0 - 3 Mar 2019

  • [Change #625] AltGr+<key> does not send the <key> value to $C000.
    • This reverts the default behaviour introduced from 1.27.6 (#558).
    • Use -altgr-sends-wmchar to allow AltGr+<key> to work correctly together.
    • NB. The reason for the revert was that it was preventing international keyboards from typing certain characters.
  • [Change #616] Vertical blending now uses 560-pixel granularity for half-dot shift support (consistent with all other video modes).

1.28.2.0 - 24 Feb 2019

  • [Change #616] Support vertical blending for 'RGB (Color Monitor)' for hires.
    • Support the old AppleWin 1.25 vertical blending for hires via a 'Vertical Blend' checkbox.
  • [Change #621] Support RGB AppleColor card's 160-color pixel mode by squashing 640 pixels into 560 pixels.
    • Squashing is done by losing every 8th pixel.
  • [PR #623] Do not reset on minor state load errors.
  • [Bug #609] Configuration dialog didn't correctly reflect lack of Mockingboard/Phasor when loading a save-state without this sound card.

1.28.0.0 - 12 Jan 2019

  • [Change #357] Resurrected the AppleWin 1.25 "Color (Standard)" video mode as "Color (RGB Monitor)".
    • This is equivalent to emulating RGB video, ie. a video mode with sharp text and pixels.
    • NB. Unlike AppleWin 1.25, this is now cycle-accurate, so demos that synchronise with the video scanner will work correctly.
  • [Change #603] Removed support for v1 save-state files.
    • Any v1 save-state files should be loaded into AppleWin 1.27, and then re-saved to a v2 save-state file.
  • [Change #597] Removed the functionality for CTRL+F10 to reveal the mouse cursor.
  • [Change #585] Added a 'Swap' HDD button to the Configuration->Input property sheet.
  • [Bug #608] Mockingboard's 6522 TIMER1 wasn't generating an interrupt quickly enough for Broadside's detection routine.

  • [Change #205] Added support for Apple II/II+ custom 2K video ROMs.
    • Extended command line switch: -videorom

1.27.12.0 - 17 Nov 2018

  • [Change #574] Add support for PAL/European or custom 8K video ROMs:
    • Added new command line switch: -videorom <file>
      • Replaces the video ROM for the Enhanced //e.
      • Support video ROM sizes of 4K, 8K and 16K (top 8K only).
      • NB. The rocker switch is set to the European video ROM position.
    • F10 (for //e or Enhanced //e models) emulates the PAL //e's rocker switch (under the keyboard).
      • Use to toggle between European or US video ROM.
  • [Change #583] Added new switch: '-no-hook-alt':
    • Used to prevent left/right ALT from emulating Open/Solid Apple keys.
    • For European keyboards where AltGr is needed to type keys like '[',']'.
