Applesauce FDC Software Updated

John Morris, creator of the Applesauce Floppy Disk Controller, has announced an update to the Applesauce FDC Software. The two successive releases, 1.69 and 1.69.1 include the following changes to the program:

Client Release 1.69

  • More Heathkit H-17 work. Improved disk writing of H8D files.
  • Added loading/writing support for 80 track disks. Imaging of 80 track H-17 disks still needs some work.
  • Support for Heathkit HDOS has been added allowing you to extract and view files as well as Fast Imager identifying affected files when disk has bad sectors.
  • Fixed loading of Apple II EDD files that was broken a couple releases ago.
  • Minor UX cleanup and bug fixes.

Client Release 1.69.1

  • Have I mentioned that I like to break the Heathkit H-17 imaging? Well, fixed it again.
  • Preserving file dates when exporting Heathkit HDOS disks.

You can download the latest version of the software by doing the automatic update through the client software or by downloading the updated version from the Applesauce FDC Software page at:
