Version 4.1.0 (2019/04/13)

New Features:

  • Atari800 now includes Altirra BIOS-es for all emulated systems: 400/800,
    XL/XE, and 5200; as well as Altirra BASIC. It is now possible to use the
    emulator without providing any ROM images.

  • The Altirra OS-es and Altirra BASIC can now be selected by users in the
    "System settings", if they want to use them. Previously Altirra OS was used
    automatically only when no other OS ROMs were found.

  • joyhat support for all four real joysticks, configurable in CLI/cfg/TUI

Notable changes:

  • All documentation specific to building Atari800 on Windows has been moved
    from DOC/INSTALL to a new file, DOC/ This document
    has also been expanded with a new chapter covering building Atari800 using

  • Ability to use the built-in EmuOS firmware has been removed. Users wishing
    to run Atari800 without providing OS ROMs now have an option of using the
    built-in Altirra OS-es, which are compatible with much more Atari software
    than EmuOS.
    At the same time, it is still possible to compile a version of Atari800
    without any OS ROMs built in, by means of the --disable-altirra_bios
    configure option.
