Release Notes: A few minor changes have been made to the graphics output words and initial support for a second ATA/IDE hard drive was added. The ATA/IDE driver has been cleaned up, and is more efficient.
Release Notes: DDR (the debugger) has been rewritten and now uses a cleaner, easier interface. Cards has gained an updated interface, the ability to save/load cards, the ability to run code stored in a card, and several new editing features. The Forth implementation is cleaner, and moves closer to being a semi-standard dialect. There is also an experimental persistent data storage system and the ability to embed Forth code into the kernel.
Release Notes: Many things have been added in this release. There is a functional IDE driver, improved parallel port driver, swappable keymaps (dvork and qwerty), and the start of a serial port driver. Fifteen words have been added to the Forth implementation. On the applications front, Cards can now print to some printers. A debugger (DDR) has been added to aid in development. It is now possible to store programs in a card, and run them from within Cards. The interface is also more consistant now.
Release Notes: This release fixes numerous bugs, expands the drawing words, and adds a replacement for the buggy Hobbit editor. There is an prototype parallel port driver, a more robust assembler, and better organization of the primitives. There is also a new document (glossary.txt) that details every word in RetroForth and how they are used.
Release Notes: This release has several improvements. A massive overhaul of the source code permits compiling under DOS as well as Linux and Windows. Overall readability of the source code is improved and a few irritating bugs have been worked out. New in this release is support for booting from a FAT12 format floppy disk and easy loading under DOS/Windows 9x. The Thorin interface has been dropped due to its bloat and buggy design.
Release Notes: Some intial code for multiboot has been added. The merge between the Stable and Development code bases has begun. Both Stable and Development releases are built during each run. Also, the core documentation is included with this release.
Release Notes: This stable release includes Thorin (a menu-based interface), Hobbit (the BLOCK subsystem), and the RetroForth Assembler.
Release Notes: Several new features have been added in this version, including the start of a PC speaker driver, improved German keymaps, and initial Spanish and Dvorak keymaps. Also new in this release is support for CONSTANT values. A few minor bugs were also corrected.
Release Notes: New in this release is support for 256 color bitmap images and a redesigned user interface. The background color can now be changed at runtime. The size limit on the kernel has been raised to 32k. This release should be more stable than the previous one. Critical bugs in Hobbit and the output subsystem have been fixed. Minor bugs, including a problem with the initial stack, have also been fixed.
Release Notes: This release offers a solid subset of the Development codebase. There is a small but usable block editor/viewer, variable support, CMOS reading and writing, and a realtime clock driver. The startup mode has been changed to delayed execution, and several primitive variables have been moved into high-level Forth.
