Fuse - the Free Unix Spectrum Emulator / News: Recent posts

Fuse: 0.10.0.1 released

The Free Unix Spectrum Emulator (Fuse): an emulator of the 1980s home computer and various clones for Unix, Mac OS X and Windows.

Fuse 0.10.0.1 has been released. This is a bug-fix release for 0.10.0, which fixes some critical issues:

* Fuse: overwriting a file would lead to a corrupt file if the new file were shorter than the old file (thanks, Matthew Westcott)
* Fuse and fuse-utils: ensure all necessary header files are distributed (thanks, various people)

Win32 port of Fuse available

An alpha version of a port of Fuse, the increasingly inaccurately named Free Unix Spectrum Emulator, to Win32 is now available from the Fuse website:

http://fuse-emulator.sourceforge.net/fuse-win32.zip

Credit for this should go to Marek Januszewski.

Do note that this is very much an alpha version, and probably won't work in all sorts of ways. It should be noted that I don't run a Win32 box, and Marek is currently busy with other things, so the best way to fix any bugs etc will be to give me patches to the code :-)
