Default New version (1.11) of Catweasel Mk4 for AmigaOS4 up for download

Hi people,

A quick heads-up: at my Catweasel page (http://www.retroreview.com/iang/Catweasel/) I've just put up the latest version of my Catweasel drivers for AmigaOS 4. I've also included the source, and I've already done MOS and AROS in the past, so it wouldn't be too much work to port it to work on those systems either, probably.

Currently supports the following disk formats:
Amiga Double Density 880KB
Amiga High Density 1.76MB
MS-DOS Double Density 720KB
MS-DOS High Density 1.44MB
Apple Macintosh DS varispeed 800KB
Apple Macintosh DS varispeed 400KB
MS-DOS 40 Track DSDD 8 Sectors 320KB
Commodore 1541 (PET/C64/VIC-20/+4 etc.) 35 Track 190KB
MS-DOS 80 Track DSDD 1.2MB
MS-DOS 40 Track DSDD 9 Sectors 360KB
Amiga Double Density 880K 5.25" 880KB
MGT Sam Coupé 800KB
Texas Instruments TI-99/4(a) 90KB
Atari 810 SSSD 90KB
Acorn BBC Micro 40 Track SSSD 100KB
Acorn BBC Micro 80 Track SSSD 200KB
Acorn BBC Micro 40 Track SSSD 100KB 3.5"
Acorn BBC Micro 80 Track SSSD 200KB 3.5"
Sinclair Spectrum MGT +D 800KB
Amstrad CPC / Sinclair Spectrum +3 180KB
Tatung Einstein TC-01/TC-256 200KB
Amstrad PCW 8256/8512 180KB
Atari ST DSDD 720KB
Atari ST SSDD 360KB
Triumph-Adler Alphatronic PC
MS-DOS Double Density 640KB (8 sector)

Instructions for using this with WHDLoad to allow installation of copy-protected disks is all on the webpage.

Any feedback gratefully appreciated. Donations also very warmly welcomed.

As usual: any questions, just ask. Also, if you have a weird disk format I've not supported, it's because I don't have an example of that format. If you can send a disk to me I can probably add support to the next version.

Thanks for reading!

Great update, but can you still Buy a CATWEASEL MK4 PLUS anywhere?

Thanks for the update Ian
Any chance we get to use our old joysticks with the CW?

Not that I know of.
Maybe we can bug Jens into producing some more.
I'd like to have one for my Mac (if the driver gets ported to MorphOS).
I would be the only way for me to use a floppy.

Also I still have a 1.42 GHz iBook (with MorphOS 3.4).

Finally I still have an old A2000 for the days I'm into pain.

The archive does actually include a MorphOS version too, but it's not up-to-date. I can try and recompile it but I'm not sure when I'll get time. Frank Mariak was looking at the source a while back, he may be able to do more with the source as he knows more about MorphOS than I.

Great news. I have a Catweasel and I've pre-ordered an X1000. This will be fantastic.

As KLX300R said, I assume the joystick ports will be active?

Edit: PS, I've posted this as news on AW.net too.
