Simon Owen opublikował nową binarkę swojego emulatora (imo z dostępnych najlepszego) mikrokomputer Sam Coupe - przynajmniej dla mnie konstrukcji będącej ukoronowaniem historii Z80A w domowych mikrokomputerach. Dużo się dzieje przy tym emulatorze, w porówaniu do wcześniejszego okresu gdy trzeba było na aktualizację po parę lat.
