Jewel for retro archaeologists!
Panda antivirus detects the installation file as suspicious (Windows 32bit). It should be sent to Panda stuff to eliminate the suspection if the file is not malicious. I will not install it and still use the previous version of Fuse.
IT PRETTY MUCH KILLED MY COMPUTER
Fuse is a very accurate and feature rich emulator. It emulates a great number of Spectrum models and clones, plus some peripherals. The monitor/debugger also is great, I use it regularly. Small improvements could be done in user interface and documentation, but this does not diminish it's value.
