Title: No More Previous Emulator Work!?!? Say it aint so!!!
Post by: zombie on February 10, 2019, 12:34:01 pm
Quotei have stopped my work on Previous during the last month. It is unlikely that i will continue development in the future. I'm sorry for the bad news. I hope someone else will pick up the project and complete it. I'd be happy to assist with informations.

Thanks so much. I think I have the latest version then. I wonder if development did stop though.

You were reading news from 2014.  Andreas has been plugging away at it continuously, although recently there has not been much activity.  At this point the emulator is pretty much feature complete.

Aye, I didn't notice the date! Thanks.

Well there 2 features I hope it still gets. One, setting up a shared folder, and two, making it more compatible so it can get through a clean install (which it currently does not).

Agreed!  Those two, plus native networking and native GUI would be heaven!
