What's New in Version 0.4.0 See changelog
This release is made for the current Github master branch of the X16 Kernal and emulator, what is expected to become version R39.
The keyboard functions have been recoded in many ways. The code uses a custom scan code handler to detect modifier keys, and to support some keys not available in the standard Kernal. Some examples of the latter are PgUp, PgDn, End, Delete (not to be confused with Backspace), and the numerical keypad keys.
The cursor has been changed from a blinking line to a blinking block, similar to the Kernal's cursor. The cursor is not working the same way; when blinking it swaps the foreground and background colors which is functional both in PETSCII and ISO mode.
Apart from that, some code and UI cleanup to make the user experience nicer (at least that's my hope).
