Krill: I wish you're right but you aren't. I reverted the modifications in this entry and locked to mods to avoid further alterations.

Pretty sure Bitbreaker is aware of that convention and would have added a new release entry without being told to.

I took his comment merely as a teaser. And that ZX0 stuff really looks promising. =)

- standard files can be linked to certain lines of dir-art
- dir-art now also sets blocksize, filetype and locked status of files
- more sanity checks during disk read
- loading of file number $ff now resets drive, $f0-$fe for requesting disc-sides
- 63 dir-entries per dir-sector
- sfx.asm can now be adopted and is integrated into bitnax/zx0 at compile time
- bus_lock feature improved
- an ATN-responder is uploaded to all remaining drives, so they can stay turned on
