Release Notes: Many improvements have been made to the build system, including several bug fixes, easier configuration, and cleaner output. Retro can now run under X11 using the Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL). The ATA/IDE driver has been tested further and now works under Linux as well.
Release Notes: This is an emergency bugfix release. Under some conditions, the build scripts could cause all files in a user's home directory to be erased. This has been fixed.
Release Notes: This is primarily a cleanup of the codebase, though it does have a few important changes. The first is the drop of compile scripts for DOS/Windows. The second change is a brand-new build system which supports automatic downloading and installation of patches and optional components.
Release Notes: This release has a working ATA/IDE driver, so blocks can be saved and loaded from a hard drive. The sidebar has been updated in several ways as the user interface framework is being designed. Also included is an improved build system for Linux users, and a set of scripts for downloading and installing patches.
Release Notes: A few new features were added in this release. The primary one is that the Linux port now works in VGA mode with the SVGALIB library. A framework for handling bitmap images and an improved array of drawing words were started. This release also fixes a critical bug in array creation under Linux.
Release Notes: This release is a major one as it breaks compatibility with older kernel codebases. It now uses Tom Novelli's new macros for generation of the dictionary at compile time, as well as a new build script to generate the driver and core word collections. A few minor changes have taken place in the Forth implementation (three alignment words were dropped and one was fixed). The sidebar has recieved a few updates including changable colors. It is also thinner, so less screen space is wasted.
Release Notes: This release has support for running under Linux (in text mode). A sidebar with support for various plugins has been added. The block editor has been modified to support text mode display, and work on stabilizing the directory tree has begun.
Release Notes: This release extends the Forth implementation and adds several new features. The graphics subsystem has recieved numerous changes including support for VESA, console scrolling, variable screen modes, and initial code for text and higher color depths. VESA is autodetected if the DOS or FAT12 loaders are used. A few quirks in the block editor have also been fixed.
Release Notes: The code cleanup was continued. A number of bugs were fixed, and a few simplifications have made the mini-assembler easier to use. Many enhancements were made to the user interface. The new look and feel is still simple, but more visually appealing. Finally, the block editor is now working properly.
Release Notes: A handful of new features have been added, including a simpler block editor. The Cards application now allows line-by-line editing of blocks, and initial support for IF/THEN has been added.
