I very much hope all the goals are met. But for now the focus is on the firmware (OS/BASIC) and software (apps) which will run on any rev4.1 ZX-Uno or later. The underlying OS is pretty robust now. There's still a lot of work to do on completing BASIC, but it's sufficiently developed that it's possible to write apps for the system. So what I plan to do next is to write a framework that will make it easy to port existing Spectrum titles.

To avoid running out of free-space on Vimeo, we've replaced the promo-viddeo with a lower quality version. However, it does have the typo fixed:

We've posted a new video of the Kayahara spinning dancer demo:

I've updated the slideshow app. It now fades the images in and out and is synced to the vbuffer. Early access is availble for Patreon subscribers: https://www.patreon.com/chloe280se

This video shows the images included with the app: https://vimeo.com/381051308

UnoDOS 3.1.0 has reached RC (https://zx.itch.io/wolf). This version includes only the kernel, the RUN command and third-party TR-DOS support. You'll have to provide everything else yourself. Chloe sponsors get the download free of charge (https://www.patreon.com/chloe280se).
