Changes for 0.9.7 (2014-03-31):

  • Rewrite the assembler, adding support for labels, compile-time expressions, and literals in decimal and binary. Huge thanks go to @dustmop for this fantastic work.

Changes for 0.9.6 (2013-12-12):

  • Rewrite DEFADDRESS again and stop inlining get-byte. The new implementation is easier to read and allows upstream clients to monkey patch get-byte to use a given platform's memory map.
  • Reduce consing on SBCL > 1.1.8 due to modarith/type checking changes.
  • Make debugging easier by using named-lambdas for the opcodes.
  • Minor code cleanups and book clarifications.

Changes for 0.9.5 (2013-07-05):

  • Further performance improvements from type hints: Emulates the 6502 at ~50 mhz with SBCL 1.1.4.debian on an old Core 2 Duo.

Changes for 0.9.4 (2013-06-19):

  • Major performance improvements from rewriting: DEFADDRESS, DEFASM, and status-bit handling, again. Results in a 75% reduction in runtime on Klaus' testsuite!
  • Two new chapters in the book: Lessons Learned and A Naive JIT.
  • Incompatible change: Renamed 6502-STEP to STEP-CPU.
  • Incompatible change: JIT-EXECUTE was removed.

Changes for 0.9.3 (2013-06-10):

Changes for 0.9.2 (2013-05-14):

  • Substantial performance improvements from rewriting: overflow handling for arithmetic ops (overflow-p), storage handling for %status-bit (defenum). Results in a 33% reduction in runtime and an over 90% reduction in garbage generated for Klaus' testsuite.
  • Greatly simplified defasm macro replaces defopcode+defins.
  • New Addressing Modes implementation.

Changes for 0.9.1 (2013-04-01):

  • Add a very naive JIT compiler. Don't expect big speedups. Do expect bugs.
  • Improve error reporting on incorrect assembly.
  • Remove comment and label support from assembler.
  • Fix symbolic disassembly for certain addressing modes.

Changes for 0.9.0 (2013-03-16):

  • Perfect run on Klaus Dorfmann's test suite aside from decimal mode ADC/SBC.
  • Fix bugs in new symbolic assembler. Indirect and *-x *-y addressing modes were previously not working. Extended test suite to cover these cases.
  • Added and exported CURRENT-INSTRUCTION helper.
  • Fix stack wraparound in PHP, PLA, etc.

Changes for 0.8.9 (2013-03-03):

  • Add symbolic assembly and disassembly, i.e. sexp-format support.

Changes for 0.8.8 (2013-02-23):

  • Massive package overhaul and docs update.
  • Minor dead code removal (i.e. toy assembly progs).

Changes for 0.8.7 (2013-02-21):

  • Tweaked DEFOPCODE to fix addressing mode handling of ASL, LSR, ROL, and ROR.
  • Rewrote ROL and ROR, fixing bugs.
  • Emulate the infamous 6502 indirect JMP page wrapping bug.
  • Fixed incorrect break and unused bit handling in PHP, PLP, and RTI.
  • Fixed incorrect overflow bit handling in ADC.
  • Fixed incorrect result in LSR due to extra fetch.
  • Fixed carry bit handling in SBC, CMP, CPX, and CPY. Previous fix didn't correctly handle all cases.

Changes for 0.8.6 (2013-02-20):

  • Added NMI support.
  • Improved assembler error reporting.
  • Improved readability of generated code from defopcode/defins.
  • Fixed CPU initial state based on values in NESdev wiki.
  • Fixed incorrect carry bit handling in CMP,CPX,CPY.
  • Fixed incorrect jumps when using JSR opcode.
  • Fixed assembler PC tracking bug when using labels.
  • General refactoring and code cleanups.

Changes for 0.8.5 (2012-07-22):

  • Assembler supports forward references/jumps.
  • Assembler detects addressing mode of a label based on call site, not definition.
  • Fixed PC tracking in assembler.
  • Improved assembler unit tests.

Changes for 0.8 (2012-07-14):

  • Added assembler with comment and label/var support.
  • Miscellaneous improvements to docs and unit tests.

Changes for 0.7.5 (2012-07-11):

  • Huge refactor to status bit handling, correctness improved.
  • Improved correctness of ADC and SBC instructions.

Changes for 0.7.2 (2012-06-24):

  • Switched to BSD license.
  • Completed addressing mode unit tests.
  • Fixed load-time defopcode bug with eval-when.
  • Fleshed out README.

Changes for 0.7.1 (2012-06-17):

  • Disassembler correctly formats output based on addressing mode.
  • Added API docs.

Changes for 0.7 (2012-06-16):

  • Export 6502-step, execute.
  • Improved cycle counting.
  • Bugfixes to PC tracking (jsr, jmp, rts, relative mode).

Changes for 0.6.5 (2012-06-11):

  • Added disassembler.
  • Bugfixes and cleanups.

Changes for 0.5 (2012-06-10):

  • Initial release.
