I am trying to find the latest version of compass (1.2.9?). I have searched this forum on where to find it and can only find a demo version that can be altered so that it will "work". Does anybody know where I can find the full version to buy or when it has been made freely available to the community where I can download it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Related: Compass 2.0 was in development but I guess the project was abandoned, it would be great if the sources were made available.

As far as I know, 2.0 is/was last being worked on by Jon de Schrijver. I guess turbor is the best person to contact him about it, if he hasn't already.

Raymond got his personal copy of Compass last week.

Frankly, I'm surprised by the sudden uptick in interest for Compass. (Of course, it is the best IDE available if you only want to use an MSX for development Cool , but who isn't cross compiling these days...)

Compass isn't made public yet, partly because we told the old Compjoetania in the 90's that we wouldn't (although +20 years later that's less of a valid point) but also because the demo version most people got from the MCCM CD is a fully functional version (tough a bit slow on turbo-R Wink )

Also the 2.0 version that Jon was working on was/is already surpassing compass 1.2 but it needed a little bit of spit-and-polish before it could be released...

I'm gonna talk with Jon about this and see what we can do going forward...

Well, even if most of coders are cross compiling today, it is/was a great msx software and deserve to be preserved (and used, if someone want to...)
