18 <h1>Version history</h1>
20 <p id=dateentry>Version 1.16 - Februar 20th 2020</p>
21 <ul>
22 <li>Upgraded <A href="doc_ym2mym.htm">Ym2Mym</A> to the version 1.8 (New retuning options supporting Spectrum and MSX machines)</li>
23 </ul>
25 <p id=dateentry>Version 1.15 - September 7th 2019</p>
26 <ul>
27 <li>Upgraded the <A href="doc_compiler.htm">C Compiler</A> to version 1.38 by integrating all the latest changes from Fabrice Frances: Fixes some issues found by Goyo and Retroric regarding encoding of data tables by the compiler.</li>
28 <li>Changed back the default compile optimization level from -O3 to -O2 - there are still some cases of bad code generation</li>
29 <li>Fixed a problem with include/sys/sound.h containing invalid symbols that don't compile correctly</li>
30 </ul>
32 <p id=dateentry>Version 1.14 - June 8th 2019</p>
33 <ul>
34 <li>Upgraded the <A href="doc_compiler.htm">C Compiler</A> to version 1.36 by integrating all the latest changes from Fabrice Frances: Better code generator, float/int conversion fixes, better error handling.</li>
35 <li>Changed the default compile optimization level from -O2 to -O3 - providing significantly better code generation, both in size and speed</li>
36 <li>Upgraded <A href="doc_linker.htm">Link65</A> to the version 0.66: The new macro file generate lines that contain multiple instructions, the linker stopped at the first encountered instruction, this new version correctly parses that</li>
37 <li>The code generator macro file is now compatible with both XA and FRASM</li>
38 <li>Updated <A href="doc_filepack.htm">FilePack</A> version number to 0.2 to 0.5 after somebody reported an issue with a veryyyyyyy old version which happened to have the same version number of a much more recent one.</li>
39 <li>Tap2Dsk 2.1.1: Added a fix to avoid the tool to stay stuck on tapes with incorrect size specified in their headers</li>
40 <li>Fixed a problem with itoa not correctly processing negative numbers (the "-" was overwritten by the number printing routine). Also took the opportunity to optimize the code (removed the jsr itoa / rts as well as an unnecessary x register clearing (it's set to zero when we are back from udiv10)</li>
41 <li>Added support for %u to printf</li>
42 <li>A new environment variable, OSDKVERSION contains the version number of the SDK, it is shown when building a program</li>
43 </ul>
45 <p id=dateentry>Version 1.13 - October 14th 2018</p>

56 <li>Fixed the BomberZ sample program to use the new Bas2Tap syntax</li>
57 <li>Fixed the library functions 'scanf' and 'sscanf' (For some reason these files had not been converted to use the XA syntax when we switched from FRASM)</li>
58 <li>Upgraded the version of Sedoric 3 used by Tap2DSK with the patch that improves the handling of the "insert master disk" prompt</li>
59 <li>Modified the Oricutron batch file to use PUSHD/POPD instead of CD, this makes it possible to start the emulator even when the project is on another disk drive location</li>
