    May 16, 2013 – CoCo/Dragon Emulator


       
       
         Joe Hagen has let me know that a new CoCo/Dragon emulator, called XROAR, has been released. XRoar is a Dragon emulator for Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, GP32, Nintendo DS and Windows. Due to hardware similarities, XRoar also emulates the Tandy Colour Computer (CoCo) models 1 & 2. The main XROAR page can be found at http://www.6809.org.uk/dragon/xroar.shtml.

    Arno Puder has advised that he has released v1.0 of his TRS-80 emulator for Android.
     
    According to the Google Play store description:

              This is the first version of a TRS-80 emulator. It is a port of xtrs to Android. Please note that this version is alpha-ware. At the moment you can only run Model 3 programs in text mode. More features are to follow as I find time. I’m releasing my work under the Apache V2 Open Source license. Instead of giving this app a one-star rating either wait or head over to SourceForge, create a patch and send it to me! If you have some graphic skills, perhaps you can help with by contributing a nice app icon. You can find the complete source code at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/trs80/.          
    Google Play link is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.puder.trs80.
