+9640News Posted May 8 Share Posted May 8 OK folks. @InsaneMultitasker and myself, along with @hloberg with involvement with Abasic, are releasing a software suite including Version 7.40 of MDOS, as well as a suite of other programs with various enhancements. Some of the extra included programs have been released separately, however they are all included in this package to make sure everyone is using the most up to date versions. This is a big caution! If you are using a TIPI, you ABSOLUTELY need to update to the latest 3.16 image. If you do not, and you manually use the MDOS Command Line Interpreter COPY command to copy files to the TIPI rather than using DM or GDM2K, you risk file corruption following updates to both TIPI and MDOS source code. Myart with TIPI mouse support, GenREF document updates for most of the XOP's as well as the TIPI XOP driver and ANSI optional XOP driver are included as well. CYA has been updated, and barring any future feature updates, this version of CYA will not require updating for future MDOS releases. For those that did not know, this could be a painstaking task to locate all the locations in the MDOS file. Now, a table is built into MDOS with auto-update properties for us whenever MDOS is updated. Updates were made to Clint Pulley's Disk Manger and Peter Muy's Editor. Bruce Hellstrom's Mouse Driver Package has been updated to also include a TIPI Mouse driver so the Geneve user can use either a Geneve Bus Mouse, RS232 mouse, or a TIPI mouse drive for mouse driver enabled programs. GPL 7.40 is part of the package, along with EXEC V2.7, ABasic 4.09, PFM, and TSTAT. TSTAT can be added to an AUTOEXEC file with the ability to test the TIPI status for updates if desired. I will repeat this again! This is a big caution! If you are using a TIPI, you ABSOLUTELY need to update to the latest 3.16 image. If you do not, and you manually use the MDOS Command Line Interpreter COPY command to copy files to the TIPI rather than using DM or GDM2K, you risk file corruption following updates to both TIPI and MDOS source code. We hope you enjoy! Beery This message has been updated. The 20230514 MDOS and Utilities.zip file contains @InsaneMultitasker's updated PFM software released January 16, 2022 and MEMTEST V2.70 versus the initial release of 20230504 MDOS and Utilities.zip. The MEMTEST program has a minor update with the added MEMEX splash screen from work I was doing trying to capture Ron Walter's animated graphic screens in his original MEMEX test program. 20230504 MDOS and Utilities.zip 20230514 MDOS and Utillities.zip MEMTEST-V270.zip 20220116 PFM Release 2.zip 8 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
