The ROM for the PCPI Applicard for the Apple II surfaced. Unlike the already-emulated Microsoft-style Z80 card which runs the Z80 from the Apple's RAM and limits the Z80 to 1 MHz, the Applicard has it's own self-contained 64K 6 MHz Z80 system that talks to the Apple via a pair of 8-bit latches and is therefore much, much faster.

CP/M 2.2 is right at home.

That card was at one point the fastest CP/M computer on the market, wasn't it? It outpaced stand-alone equivalents.

It had to be right up there. Very few standalone CP/M computers had a 6 MHz Z80, let alone with no wait states.

Micro Musician II (.fdi floppy disks)

Does support the driver the MIDI-Out?
No problems with NP2 (FMgen version).

No. Sound board support is very limited as per now (only pc9801-26 / -86 are supported, and for the latter there's a regression with ADPCM sound too).

Cool. That UI looks heavily influenced by the original MacPaint.

Yeah, and also Will Harvey's Music Construction Set(tm), although the IIgs version of MCS was also heavily Mac-inspired.

The fixed 50/50 black/white background, fixed non-overlapping windows with gaps, and palette positions look like something straight out of Bill Atkinson's design book.
