fortress 0.7.5 released with some new features.
A nice animation is visible.
I added a function that detects CPU frequency :)
It works as follows:
1-Read current time strap counter.
2-Wait 1 sec.
3-Read current time strap counter again.
5-Divide by 1000000.
6-You got frequency in Mhz.
After support for Intel's x87 FPU finished a plan for cpu capabilities identification and support for MMX and streaming SIMD.
initial support for x87 FPU support will be avaliable. Which includes a lazy FPU context switch. And some libraries support.
Reading Intel's manual :)
