Not dead yet!

As an FYI, AppleCommander is not dead yet. Really. There are just too many projects to work on at any point in time. I will get back to enhancing (and/or fixing) AppleCommander someday.

If you just simply cannot wait, please grab the source code and enhance AppleCommander. Send me the changes and I'll add it back into the source tree.

I've gotten a number of bug fixes and would love to see more fixes! If someone is good at GUI work, please re-do what I slapped together. Or, restructure the code. Or, add something cool (like finish the Applesoft/Integer basic compiler or replace it with something that works). Just some ideas. I'm sure there are tons of others!

AppleCommander 1.3.1 released!

New for 1.3.1 (2003-12-12):
* Short-cut keys have been implemented.
* Spent time ensuring that buttons, context menus, and shortcuts are enabled or disabled as appropriate.
* Implemented Save As and a save on a new image invokes Save As
* File preview added!
* Printing is available from the file preview.
* Copy is avilable from file preview except for images.
* Opening an invalid disk image (or a file that is not a disk image) no longer crashes AppleCommander.
* Provide a command-line interface - John Matthews "ac" is now supplied as part of the AppleCommander distribution. If AppleCommander gets no command-line arguments, the GUI version is launched. Otherwise, AppleCommander launches.... read more

AppleCommander 1.3.0 released!

* HDV disks are not always created to their full capacity. AppleCommander, however, assumes that the size of the file on disk is the size of the disk. (Really!) This is an issue because the ProDOS bitmap indicates there is a certain amount of space and AppleCommander just assumes that the data exists.
* Incorporated fixes from John Matthews. See: http://www.wright.edu/~john.matthews/ac.html
* Early release of Applesoft BASIC compiler. This currently is limited to assembly of small programs. If a command is not compiled, you are likely to just get an error about expecting a line number. Expressions are not very complete. Supported commands are:
END, FLASH, FOR, GOTO, GR, HCOLOR, HGR, HGR2, HOME, HPLOT,
HTAB, INVERSE, NEXT, NORMAL, PRINT, RETURN, TEXT, VTAB
Unsupported commands are:
ABS, AND, ASC, AT, ATN, CALL, CHR$, CLEAR, COLOR=, CONT, COS,
DATA, DEF, DEL, DIM, DRAW, EXP, FN, FRE, GET, GOSUB, GR, HIMEM:,
HLIN, IF, IN#, INPUT, INT, LEFT$, LEN, LET, LIST, LOAD, LOG,
LOMEM:, MID$, NEW, NOT, NOTRACE, ON, ONERR, OR, PDL, PEEK, PLOT,
POKE, POP, POS, PR#, READ, RECALL, REM, RESTORE, RESUME, RIGHT$,
RND, ROT=, RUN, SAVE, SCALE=, SCRN, SGN, SHLOAD, SIN, SPC,
SPEED=, SQR, STEP, STOP, STORE, STR$, TAB, TAN, THEN, TO, TRACE,
USR, VAL, VLIN, WAIT, XDRAW, &
Note that the compiler is not very sophisticated.
* Updated build notes and process.
