ExtenDOS 4 now available for free download

Postby anodyne » Mon Nov 26, 2018 8:00 pm

I've released the binaries of ExtenDOS 4 as a free download. Just go to my website (http://www.anodynesoftware.com) and follow the links. There are also PDFs of the French & English manuals. Once you have the ZIP, just unZIP it on to a disk, or into a folder, and follow the manuals.

At some point I will release the source too, but I won't promise a date right now, because it needs some tidying up first. Apart from anything else, it uses some of my unreleased personal libraries, so I need to get them into the source as well.

Think of it as an early Christmas present :D

CD/DVD drives get less important for Ataris since CosomosEx and Lightning as they provide access to larger medias or even server shares where ISO images and physical CD/DVD medias can be extracted, but anyhow this is a great move. Thanks a lot!

Nice gesture, Roger. ExtenDOS is probably less relevant nowadays but it sure is a heck of a great piece of software. Releasing the sources is an even nicer gesture. Cheers.

Many thanks Roger.

My Milan came with Spin! but I soon changed to ExtenDOS and the CD suite. You have put a lot of work into your products and always been great with support and advice.
