This release adds support for:

  • The Alto Keyset
  • The Trident disk controller and up to eight T-80 or T-800 drives

Additionally several minor bugs have been fixed:

  • Ethernet encapsulation caused the emulated Alto to receive its own outgoing packets.
  • XM bank switching soft-reset behavior is corrected, allowing Xerox IFS to run.

ContrAlto-Mono.zip contains ContrAlto binaries for Unix and OS X.
ContrAltoSetup-Windows.zip contains the ContrAlto installer for Windows platforms.

V1.1

  • A few minor performance tweaks, adding to a 10-15% speed increase.
  • Switched back to targeting .NET 4.5.3 rather than 4.6; this works better under Mono
    and avoids odd issues on Windows machines running pre-4.6 frameworks.
  • Microcode disassembly improved slightly, annotated microcode source updated.
  • Nova disassembler now handles BRI, DIR, EIR, DIRS instructions rather than treating
    them all as TRAPs.
  • Fixed serious bugs in memory state machine, BravoX now runs.
  • Fixed minor bug in Constant ROM selection.
  • Raw Ethernet packets sent as broadcasts (matching IFS encapsulation behavior)
