Microsoft open sources GW-BASIC!
Another set of updates to my LR-87 #gemini client: fixed the damn "Back" functionality, released a Windows binary, added port number specification support, etc.
Windows build at https://bin.rainbow-100.com/
Linux build via "snap install lr87"
The Windows GUI version works okay, but it's missing some simple things like text selection, scrolling by "clicking" in the scroll bar, pressing enter in the address bar, other things... but it works!

Most of the rendering code is at http://git.rainbow-100.com/cgit.cgi/LR-87/tree/ag_render.f90
Episode 61 of the Jeff Reads His Book #podcast is now available! Listen in as Margaux gets bitchy at the help and her boyfriend, and I sound cheap while wondering if I should purchase a single video game.
I like how these headings look in this lr87 #gemini client update.
Second try... I posted the old headings in a deleted toot...
Oh, my bad, #snapcraft only needs to download that fresh image once...
It actually works pretty well. Because of the way it's designed, I do plan on implementing a Windows GUI client based on this code. Right now it assumes you're at a dumb terminal.
Hopefully any fellow Americans will remember that today is the 50th anniversary of the Kent State Massacre. Please take a moment to think about what happened 50 years ago.
