OK, I've made a raft of improvements since last week's release. All this is now available in the 2018-01-08 release.

 

  • NEW: Add _EXPMAC keyword, to force macros to expand in both the taken and not-taken branches of an IF. This is needed for IF-statements inside a RPT block, whose taken/not-taken behavior varies across loop iterations.
  • NEW: Increase resolution of release_date to include hours, minutes, seconds, and timezone.
  • NEW: Add build_date and version CFGVARs.
    • build_date takes the same format as release_date.
    • version is an arbitrary format string.
    • Both tags can appear an arbitrary number of times.
  • NEW: Add %z specifier to TODAY_xxx.
    • Reports timezone as +HHMM in TODAY_STR_xxx.
    • Reports timezone as minutes relative to UTC in TODAY_VAL_xxx.
  • NEW: Add _ROTL16, _ROTL32, _ROTR16, _ROTR32 operators.
    • Same precedence as SHL, SHR, SHRU.
  • Internal: Increase IF-ELSE-ENDI stack depth from 32 to 256.
  • Internal: Additional infrastructure for normalizing metadata between different object file types.
  • BUGFIX: Add missing __FEATURE.TODAY for the TODAY_xxx feature. This was supposed to be in the last release, but a fatfingered edit fail deleted it.
  • BUGFIX: Fix some nested RPT cases.
    • Multiple RPTs inside a nested RPT now work.
    • RPT guarded by an IF also now works.
  • BUGFIX: Fix some metadata tag behavior when loading ROMs w/ tags.
  • Misc: Start marking stuff 2018.
  • Misc: Update documentation for new features.

  • Correctly parse variables in CFG file when there's no whitespace between variable and '='.
  • Don't add metadata to ROM twice in bin2rom.
  • Add missing "description" tag description to doc/utilities/as1600.txt

Just downloaded it. The BACKTAB/display-enable synchronicity seems to be fixed. However, hitting F-11 crashes the emulation. I'll test some more.

It seems to be independent of display resolution, which is the other thing I recently changed in my build script. It is definitely something in this last build.

Oof, I had missed some of the places "gfx_tick" was called, out in the main emulator loop. This only kicked in when resetting the Intellivision.

 

I just posted a fix for that as jzintv-20180115 on the website.
