I just put this on the Facebook group...


Now with ABC802 support, and the ABC80 model has been "upgraded" to
Mikrodatorn 64K.

Well, there it is. Any brave enough to try it out? Check it out from git, or I
have built a Windows binary for those so affected (I haven't *tested* it at
all, though...)



 I haven't ported the PR*: ROM to ABC800 yet, mostly because I'd like to
connect it to the real ABC800 serial port A (PR:), so that it could actually
be used (with abcprintd) on a physical ABC800 too, without even needing
special hardware other than a serial cable (USB is fine) with ABC pinout.
