Title: 8X+[SE] - calcsys 1.4 - the forgotten update
Post by: the_mad_joob on February 10, 2021, 03:45:31 am
Welcome.

I recently discovered that the source for calcsys 1.4 (https://github.com/denglend/calcsys) is actually public since 2017, and was provided by its original developer, Dan Englender (cheers if you're reading this BTW).
Here are the documented changes :

> Flag byte 20 now displays correctly.
> Displays correct size information for archived variables.
> Hex Editor now views RAM pages on 84P correctly.

I was a bit curious to know why it had never been made available in its assembled form, so i tested it.
First, i discovered a few undocumented changes, but there might be more :

> Data location for archived variables now points to the actual data, rather than the whole archive entry.
> There is now a 1 pixel space between characters in the About screen.

Overall, the update is actually pretty close to be stable, so i performed the following :

> Discovered bugs were fixed, in a pretty clean way.
> Missing 1.4 information was added in the documentation, including undocumented changes.
> The source is now easier to assemble.

You'll find the updated source in the attached file.
To generate the application, follow the instructions in READ.txt (windows OS required).


I originally tried to contact both Dan Englender and Detached Solutions, but the email boxes are either full, or don't exist anymore.
I believe everything follows what's in the license.txt file anyway.

This is my tribute to an app that made history.
Have fun with calcsys 1.4 =]
