Weekly Software News Jan 27th to Feb 2nd


A relatively calm week on the repo, with several updates but few new releases. Let’s note that PtitSeb has released a nicely improved version of ZDoom, that Flashenv has been updated to become more practical to use and that Commander-Beef released a new frontend for the Atari 800 emulator.

Software Updates(12)

  • Non Session Manager: added QmidiArp, added support for latest Jack lib.
  • 3doh: a new version of this 3doh emulator, slightly faster than previously. You can now run Road Rash at solid 25 fps, while it’s not full speed yet.
  • Bristol: now compiled with Jack lib and jack-session support.
  • Courserian: updated with a few new features (now showing which courses you have already watched or not) and several bug fixes.
  • QMidiArp: compiled with Jack lib in this update.
  • ZynAddSubFX: this one also gets Jack lib! No reason to be jealous!
  • SunVox: updated to latest version which has tons of updates.
  • Flashenv: the flash games launcher now accepts mapping controls directly from the application itself (previously it was done through a config file).
  • GFMTSERFGJ: updated with some optimizations.
  • ZDoom: this releases makes it into the “Significant Improvement” category of the Alive and Kicking Coding Competition, and brings a new launcher for Pandora, along with nubs support, and Timidity support.
  • Pygrep: now supports regexp in the latest version.
  • KeePassX: a new release with libs included.

New Releases(2)

  • AZR-3: a tonewheel organ program. More audio awesomeness from Canseco.
  • Atari 800 EX: a new candidate for the “Significant Improvement” category of the Alive and Kicking Coding Competition, it brings a DOSBox Ultimate EX-like GUI for the Atari 800 emulator.

You forgot Guitarix as new release…

Anyway, no more updates or new releases until i finish post about audio apps, 😉

PD: I tried Pandian, similar OS as Pyra will use, only problem i found is snd-seq-midi module not loaded by default.
