Release Notes

This is a release candidate for the new 2.1 version of CBM-Command.
Both D64 and D80 image files can be downloaded.
The D64 doesn't have the PET/CBM ports of the programs.
CBM-Command cannot create 8050 disks, yet; but, the image is provided, anyway.

The ZIP file download is a compressed version of the D64. It can be used to "bootstrap" CBM-Command on a Commodore computer, without moving it through a big PC computer.
It was compressed by Pasi Ojala's PuZip program. It should be decompressed by his gUnZip program, directly onto a 1541 disk.

New Features:
  • It can detect the formats of Creative Micro Design's partitions and sd2iec's disk images.
  • It knows automatically when to create either single-sided (D64) or double-sided (D71) images.
  • CBM 8050 and CBM 8250 (SFD-1001) disk copier.
Changes from 2.1rc2:
  • After showing a message, the status line always will let you know when you have tapped the RETURN-key.
Changes from 2.1rc1:
  • It won't create a sub-directory with a null name.
Changes from 2.0:
  • A better help file.
  • Fixed batch delete: it can remove many more files in one pass.
  • After a rename, it shows both the new and old names (you can verify that you changed what you wanted to change).
  • It is better at catching and reporting disk/file errors.
  • It is less likely to be jammed by missing drives.
  • It has improved support for RELative files.
  • It copies all of the data in IDE64 files.
  • The panels show the disks' format codes.
  • The image creater says which image format it plans to make. Now, it tells you before it asks for a file-name (to remind you about which suffix to use in the name).
  • Cleaner VIC-20 screens.
Known Issues:
  • It can trigger the write-and-replace bug.
  • It can't create or write back D80 and D82 images.
  • It can't create or read images with error-blocks or extended tracks.
  • The REL-file copier doesn't truncate old target files that have the same record size as the new file.
  • It will try to copy DEL files if they are selected.
  • Errors don't stop batch operations; the file is skipped.
