The copyright message still says 2018...
Good point. I think the annual copyright update ritual might have been skipped in this case because it was neither applied to Free42 nor DMCP. I'll get that changed for the next release.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.12 / DM42-3.12

Hem, nothing special ! All went right and I can now display the date as DMY ;) You could do before but it wasn't immediately obvious without reading the release notes. Pressing [∑+] would have done it :) Patrick, Tours, France Je connais le coin ayant vécu 8 ans à Chinon :) (I know the area having ...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.12 / DM42-3.12

1. What is MSC mode? Mass Storage Class. The DM42 basically mounts the FAT drive to look at its contents. 2. Is the purpose of showing the reset.bmp image simply to know that a reset has occurred? It was Michael's idea so that we can program the DM42 units with a screen saying "Thanks for purchasin...

Re: DM42 Missing Firmware File on FAT Drive?

This is normal behaviour.

If the firmware file is there and its version is at least that of the firmware currently installed, it will install it.

After successful installation into the DM42's flash memory, the firmware file is deleted. It doesn't have to be there for the calculator to function.

Re: Alpha font ties to Last x

The font size for the message area wasn't being set explicitly at all, it was using the last font selected, i.e. the topmost displayed line of the stack.

The font size used is now set explicitly to the base font size.

Re: [DM41L] COR and T+X What do they do?

They are functions that are part of the Time Module and they're documented in the manual for that and in the manual for the HP-41CX.

See https://www.swissmicros.com/models.php for links to the HP-41CX documentation.

Re: Free42 has a new version, 2.022, time for a DM42 ROM update...

On the subject of functionality, these are the four items in Free42 2.0.22 that are relevant to the DM42: I was wrong about that. I've been in touch with David and there is a firmware version incorporating Free42 V2.0.22 in the works. ETA as yet unknown as it depends on whether or not other stuff w...
