I formulated some questions about DUMAS on HispaMSX which were answered by Daniel Berdugo, one of the developers of this new cartridge. I post them here translated because I think they are interesting:

Q: At what stage is the project now? Do you already have a PCB protoype to make tests?
A: It's still in a development stage, although there are some things already finished. Currently there isn't a complete prototype but each interface is being tested separately on an independent prototype board and, when all of them are working properly, they'll be merged into a last and complete PCB, that is, a DUMAS cartridge.
Now Néstor is working on the hardest part; programming the USB BIOS that, although being partly operative, has to be tested intensively and requires a lot of hours.

Q: Will DUMAS have its own case?
A: Yes, it's going to be a product completely professional, with box, case, etc. People who already acquired an Obsonet cartridge don't have to be worried as the Ethernet interface of DUMAS will be, of course, 100% compatible with Obsonet.

Q: Roughly, when do you think DUMAS will be available?
A: I can't estimate the launch date because in this project there isn't involved only one person, several people are working on it and each developer has predefined tasks.

Eager to see the cartridge finished.

I'd prefer an ethernet-only cartridge to prevent paying for things I don't need.

Have some faith, W76.... Call me an eternal optimist, but I think Dumas will definitely see the light of day in the future.
