xlife is a laboratory for experimenting with cellular automata. It supports loadable rulesets and palettes, different topologies, and up to 256-state cellular automata. It has rules and patterns for Life, Brian's Brain, Perrier's Loops, Langton's Ants and Loops, Wireworld, E.F. Codd's 1975 UCC automaton, some Prisoner's Dilemma games, and many others. It is very fast for step-by-step mode, bounded grid, and chaotic patterns. It has several unique features: a historical mode, a pseudocolor mode, and n-state statistics. It has been developed since 1989. The modern version of Xlife began its history in 2011.

Release Notes: Fast history record mode, fast oscillator check mode, speed indicator, more supported types of automata, a faster video subsystem, a lot of small improvements and fixes, and a new 'gen-multirules' utility to generate competing n-state rules for 2-state automata.
Release Notes: This release adds new pseudocolor mode, makes Xlife a bit faster and smoother, and fixes several errors.
Release Notes: Initial freecode release.
