I have the pleasure to announce that OpenEmulator 1.0 has been
released. What's new:
* The Apple-1 emulations are working. It is possible to emulate a
stock Apple-1, a Briel Replica-1 and a Achatz A-ONE. Every emulation
respects the memory maps and features of respective systems.
* There are many virtual monitors that can be plugged in an Apple-1
emulation: the Apple Monitor III (with high phosphor persistence), the
Apple Monitor II, a monochrome broadcast monitor, and a composite
broadcast monitor. The broadcast monitors allow fine tuning of the
* OpenEmulator is most probably the first emulator featuring a fully
functional Apple Cassette Interface Card (ACI). The ACI can be plugged
into any Apple-1 slot, and allows sending and receiving data to the
host audio system.
* OpenEmulator is definitely the first emulator with a CFFA1 expansion
card emulation. This card interfaces CompactFlash memory cards with
Apple-1 computers. It can be used in this emulation to move files much
more quickly than with the cassette interface.
* The audio recorder is capable of storing the sound output to a WAV
file, and can play back any of the following formats: WAV, AIFF, CAF,
AU, OGG, FLAC.
* OpenEmulator allows to connect devices dynamically to an emulation.
Just open the Hardware Library, and drag virtual devices to the
* OpenEmulator features an advanced video rendering system, using GPU
shaders to implement advanced monitor emulation.
* OpenEmulator also makes it easy to change emulations internally.
Just edit the XML file and reconnect/reconfigure the software
components that make up an emulation.
With the best wishes,
