GNU MDK 1.2 has been released. It is available from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mdk/ and mirrors of that site (see list of mirror sites at http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html).

GNU MDK provides a simulator of D. Knuth's MIX computer, and a development environment to write, run and debug MIXAL programs on it.

New in this release:

  • Graphical user interface (gmixvm) updated to gtk+ 2.4.x
    • gmixvm now uses the latest version of the gtk+ toolkit, including antialiased Pango fonts.
    • Individually detachable windows for the virtual machine, the source window and the devices notebook (there is no 'split mode' anymore).
    • Detachable toolbars.
    • Current source line and breakpoints are now marked via icons.
    • New menu option to change all fonts at once.
  • German i18n available (thanks to Mike Scholz). Set LANG to

    de_DE.UTF-8 to use it.

  • mixasm includes debug info in compiled mix files by default: the options -g and --debug are gone; if you want to compile without debug info, use -O or --ndebug.
