There are quite a few "feature requests" for GNUSim8085. While most of them are definitely worth implementing, we got held up in our "day jobs" so far. This project is still active and I'm happy to announce that GNUSim8085 2.0 will have many of those features implemented in addition to Windows support! Sorry for not giving enough attention so far.... read more

GNUSim8085 1.2.89 supports translation using gettext. If you're looking for the application in your language, why not consider doing a translation of GNUSim8085 to your language.
I have planned to implement the following features in GS85 1.3.0 (GNUSim8085-1.3.0).
2. Instruction reference (refer fr page)
3. Memory dumps
4. Register and flags modification.
So, keep your eyes on it!! ;-)
Sorry for the inconvinience caused. 1.2.1 packages were corrupted. I am not sure whether all the mirror sites contains corrupted packages. As a result of this I will release the next version 1.2.2 which is almost same as 1.2.1 except for the package corruption fix!
The new GNUSim8085 1.2.0 comes with the "Stack View" feature as promised before. But it is still in beta, so keep you hands wet on 1.1.9 also :-)
Well. v1.2 of GNUSim8085 is under development. It will be released soon. It differs from the previous version (v1.1) in terms of bugs. Most of the bugs from v1.1 are fixed. v1.1.9 is just beta version of v1.2 without "stack view" feauture.
Look out for v1.2 in the near future.
