News: File2DSK 1.0.6 Now Available

Chipple has released File2DSK 1.0.6 and DSKExtract 1.01, updates of his wicked easy to use DSK creation and extraction programs.

The updates since the original release for file2DSK fix a couple of bugs, lets Linux users compile the code, and allows non-alphanumeric characters in the file names. The latter now applies to DSKExtract as well. If you CoCo on a PC, you need these utilities. :)

Addendum (5/26/06): see comment. Chipple has posted version 1.07 of file2DSK! Who rocks? That's right. Chipple rocks. :)

There's now a new File2DSK version 1.0.7 that supports file type 3 ("Text editor source file"). Very minor update, but just in case!

From what I hear, we should see quite a bit of output this year from CoCoists. Some really nifty games, utilities, and hardware. Not all of it nearing development soon, of course, but definately in the works. Should be an exciting year :)
