  • Improved performance, with particular attention paid to screen output

  • The separate system files disk used by v1.9 is no longer required
  • All system files are pre-installed to the internal RAM Drive at boot
  • COPY and DUMP commands are now built-in, and not external programs
  • All internal commands accept wildcards, including REName and COPY
  • Ability to software-swap a pair of drives, so A:can be B:and vice versa
