From @Michael Steil (Discord: @mist64) over on Discord:

--------

Hi! And I'm back. For real now.

* For now, I'll mostly work on the ROM, mostly on bugs (not features), to target an r39 release.
* I am very happy that @StephenHorn  has offered to help me with the emulator. He has already done lots of great work in this field. There are many open pull requests, as well as fixes and features in his own fork that should make it into the main repo, ideally also in the context of an r39 release.
* I have also started trying to make the GitHub issue tracker as useful as possible. I am creating bugs for everything I can think of (or I have notes for) that would be necessary for the release and I'm tagging them accordingly, to have a better understanding about which bugs really need fixing before hardware can be shipped.

How anyone can help at this point:
Please add issues to GitHub! 🙂 If you find anything weird, or read about a bug in the forum or in Discord, please create an issue on GitHub. It doesn't have to be well worded, it's enough to link to the forum post, or cut&paste the Discord discussion. I'll take care of it from there. If you don't have a GitHub account, DM me here.

--------

And the Github repositories for the emulator and ROM, and documentation are here:

Lelz. That's me, by the way. I still expect I'm about a week away from having real time to work on x16emu and begin porting bugfixes and the like from Box16. But when I do have time, my plan is to go through existing PRs first, then port bugfixes and performance improvements from Box16. After that... we'll see. There are a truckload of issues in Github now, and we'd like to address some of them before releasing r39, I'll probably start working on those if nobody else beats me to them. Don't let me demotivate you, however! I have the power to accept PRs, and I'm totally happy to do so.

To add to this:

I won't have the time to participate too much in discussions here in the forum, but I don't think I'm needed anyway – there are enough people who are very familiar with all kinds of details of the X16.

I'd just like to ask that you do bring bugs in the emulator, the ROM or the documentation to my attention. As mentioned before, preferably as GitHub issues, or through any channel available to you.

Thanks, Michael. We're trying to log all the announcements here, to make it easier to see what's going on.

If you can cross post announcements here, we'd all be grateful. If not - it's not the end of the world. @Scott Robison and I both live in front of our computers, so we'll likely see and cross-post messages like this one. 😃
