Virtual II Version 7.6 Released

Gerard Putter has released a new version of the Virtual II Emulator.  The latest version, 7.6 is specifically updated to run on Mac OS X 10.11 and newer.

Version 7.6 includes the following fixes and updates:

  • This upgrade requires OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) or better.
  • Rewrote the full-screen feature; it now works for individual windows, using the familiar green button in the window title.
  • The main window can now be resized freely, and is not limited anymore to the small / medium / large sizes.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the application to incidentally ignore ROM files in the application folder.
  • Closing a virtual machine while the Inspector window is open no longer results in a crash.
  • Improved the screen refresh performance; this fixes an issue where the Apple II screen sometimes briefly showed gray areas.

Virtual II allows Apple II emulation on Mac OS X and comes complete with a full spectrum of capabilities.  This includes print to PDF, loading of large disk images and emulation of many Apple II peripherals.
