The version v0.38.1 of Xcpc has been released !
What’s new ? It’s been a long time since the last release. Well, in fact not so long, just some hours ! This version contains a patch for the Gtk3 frontend to force the use of the X11 backend when running on the Wayland compositor. So now Xcpc should run with Gtk3 under Wayland by using the XWayland protocol layer.
Thanks to Alexandre Derumier for the bug report.

The version v0.37.0 of Xcpc has been released !
What’s new ? This version includes the new Z80 emulation engine. The Z80 cpu emulator has completely been rewritten and contains no external code anymore.
This new Z80 kernel supports all documented and undocumented instructions and flags. It passes all (but one really minor) tests of the well-known and famous « Z80 instruction exerciser » (Zexdoc and Zexall). Some micro-bugs may be present but a lot of tests have been done.
