We appreciate your continued support in the form of bug reports (with patches ;)) and general feedback. Feel free to ask questions and get support through Launchpad's interface https://answers.launchpad.net/gnusim8085

Source tarball and Windows installer can be downloaded from https://launchpad.net/gnusim8085

Internalization Support
=======================
The UI is now internationalized. Translations for Arabic, Asturian,
Catalan, Esperanto, French, German, Gujarati, Italian, Kannada and
Spanish languages now in place.

New Features
============
* Print support - Print your assembly programs and contents of
assembly lising window right from GNUSim8085 application.
* Improved Windows installer with multi-language interface. The finish
screen of installer contains a 'Run Program' option.
* Experimental file handling with GIO APIs. Disabled by default. Use
--enable-gio configure option to use.

Usability
=========
Several UI modifications to enhance user experience.

* Show/Hide debugging sidepane to adjust horizontal editor screen space.
* The assembler messages pane moved to the right to offer increased
vertical editor screen space.
* Cleared up icon clutter from the user workspace.

Bug Fixes
=========
Note: We have moved to Launchpad for all our bug management now. Below
bug numbers are of SourceForge's.

SF#1847830 - Make the UI i18n enabled
SF#1942893 - Assembler listing window is too narrow
SF#2356534 - Basic File handling errors
SF#2462607 - Keypad should not insert instruction code while debugging
SF#2462657 - Example programs must be read-only on Windows
SF#2580092 - syntax highlighting for labels with underscore in symbol
SF#2582426 - syntax highlighting for sp register (stack pointer)

Known Issues
============
Minimal testing of printing feature on Windows shows that it does not
work as expected. This is nothing specific to GNUSim8085. GTK+
printing APIs are not very well supported on Windows.
Internationalized UI is not available on Windows. This will be
hopefully fixed in next release.
GTK+ runtime needs to be installed separately on Windows. This will be
hopefully fixed in next release.

Happy Simulating!!!
