Over the weekend I stumbled over what I’d refer to as an incomplete implementation of the logic within the IECHost GUI client when sector retry attempts are exhausted for a track.
The consequence of this bug is that in presence of tracks with lots of errors, a track change would have been missed by the GUI.
Version 2.13 of the client is now available within my Software page.
Within the Software page I’ve just made a few updated packages available. These include:
- C2NEmu GUI client, including Raspbian binaries
- IECHost GUI client, including Raspbian binaries
- iechost-utils, including Raspbian binaries
Stay tuned for more!
Version 4.3 binaries of the DC2N4-LC multi-threaded GUI client were published within my Software page.

Within the same Software page I also published version 1.1 binaries of my filename extractors.
I also wrote a gist that uses the CBM ROM filename extractor in order to append the name of the first CBM ROM file found in each TAP file to the TAP filename itself. It requires a bash equivalent under Windows. If you have Git installed, you can use Git Bash.
Version 2.10 of the IECHost GUI client and version 4.2 of the DC2N4-LC multi-threaded client were published within my Software page.

Version 2.9 of the IECHost GUI client and version 1.6 of the IECHost CLI Utilities were published within my Software page.
Details of what’s changed in this version are provided within each package, through the changelog.txt file. Additionally, I am managing an issue tracker for the GUI application on Hosted Redmine.
Please be advised that a number of features in the recently introduced Tools menu require a firmware update, which can be performed through either client software once the device and bootloader ports are both discovered correctly, as per IECHost manual.

Version 2.7 of the IECHost GUI client for Raspberry Pi 3 Model B was published within my Software page.

Version 2.7 of the IECHost GUI client was published within my Software page.
Also available at the same page is version 1.5 of the IECHost utilities (iechost-utils) package for command-line usage.

Version 2.2-beta of the IECHost GUI client was published within my Software page. This version includes, among other changes, a rewrite of the software layers used to communicate with IECHost devices, which simplifies multi-OS support and maintenance cycles for myself. Therefore, version 2.x is the only one I will be maintaining moving forward.

Version 1.16-beta of the IECHost GUI client was published within my Software page. This update incorporates just a few rationalizations of the messages that are displayed in the logging tab and in the status bar.

In case you’re interested and missed my blog post on this one, be advised that a beta version of the DC2N4-LC multi-threaded GUI client for Linux has also been available within my Software page for a while.

Again, this is a very experimental version and not yet flagged as safe for normal usage: only use it if you are willing to help with testing it 🙂
