A new version of the Nowind firmware and PC host software is available. New in this version:

  • MSX-DOS 1 and 2 now combined in the firmware (use -2 option to boot MSX-DOS 2)
  • added: a more robust protocol (better error detection and correction)
  • maximum speed at 7Mhz about 320kBps
  • fixed: nwhostapp depended on BOTH libusb-win32 and ftd2xxx drivers being installed (dll not found at startup)
  • fixed: MSX 1 detection
  • fixed: -a option (accidentally broken)
  • romdisk support at 360 kB (disk is included in firmware at compile time)
  • faster firmware flashing (-g option)
  • firmware flasher now detects missing romheader
  • added: NIC.COM DOS utility to insert different disk images (included in romdisk)
