3.9.0 Release

The 8bitworkshop IDE build process is finally using a JavaScript bundler (esbuild). This improves modularity and startup time, among other things. It’s a pretty big change, so please let me know if you spot any bugs!

There are a couple of new features:

  • The Amstrad CPC platform is now available! It emulates a CPC6128 (128K) and includes the cpctelera library for C coding.

  • The Stellerator Atari 2600 Emulator is now available in the MAME/Other menu. This is a native TypeScript emulator that has CRT simulation and high accuracy, though debugging is not available via the IDE.
