Spectemu emulates the 48k ZX Spectrum, which uses the Z80 microprocessor.
This package contains common configuration files and utilities which are or
can be used by either the X11 or the SVGAlib frontend.
It emulates the Z80 processor as well as the 48k Spectrum's other
hardware: keyboard, screen, sound, tape I/O. The emulation is very
close to the real thing, but it is still quite fast (It was reported
to be working well on a laptop with 486 at 25MHz!). On the other hand,
the user interface is not the best.
Features include:
- Sound support through Linux kernel sound-card driver.
- Snapshot saving and loading (.Z80 and .SNA format)
- Tape emulation: loading from tape files (.TAP and .TZX format)
- Optional quick loading of tapes.
- Saving to tape files.
- Separate utility to save tape files to real tape
- Configurable with config files and from command line

2014-01-02 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-18) unstable; urgency=medium
* Switch to git; adjust Vcs-* fields.
* Add a couple more <stdlib.h> inclusions for exit().
2013-06-07 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-17) unstable; urgency=low
[ Colin Watson ]
* Build-depend on debhelper (>= 9~) directly rather than requiring a
Lintian override for use of 8.9.0.
[ Moritz Muehlenhoff ]
* Remove the spectemu-svga package, since svgalib is scheduled for removal
(closes: #711115).
2013-02-09 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-16) unstable; urgency=low
* Use dh-autoreconf.
* Remove config-guess-sub.patch in favour of updating config.guess and
config.sub automatically at build time.  dh_autoreconf does not take
care of that by default because spectemu does not use automake.
2012-06-22 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-15) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix passing of build flags to utils/Makefile.
2011-10-21 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-14) unstable; urgency=low
* Drop -ltermcap rather than unnecessarily build-depending on
libncurses5-dev.  Thanks, Sven Joachim.
2011-10-20 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-13) unstable; urgency=low
* Explicitly build-depend on libncurses5-dev, since libreadline6-dev no
longer depends on it.
* Use dpkg-buildflags and debhelper 9 to set default compiler flags.
2011-07-24 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-12) unstable; urgency=low
* Use architecture restriction in spectemu-common's Suggests field rather
than a substvar; this is sanctioned by policy 3.9.1.
* Update Vcs-Bzr field for Alioth changes.
2010-05-09 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-11) unstable; urgency=low
* Convert to source format 3.0 (quilt) and DEP-3 patch tagging.
2010-02-17 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-10) unstable; urgency=low
* Build-depend on libreadline-dev, not libreadline5-dev (closes: #553856).
* Use 'dh_installdocs --link-doc' option from debhelper 7.4.2.
2009-09-07 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
spectemu (0.94a-9) unstable; urgency=low
* Update DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS parsing code from policy 3.8.0.
* Imported into a branch on bzr.debian.org; add Vcs-Bzr control field.
* Convert to debhelper 7. I made extensive use of override targets, so
this requires 7.0.50.
* Build-depend on x11proto-core-dev rather than the transitional x-dev
* Quote value of needs= in spectemu-svga.menu.
* Update config.guess and config.sub from autotools-dev 20090611.1.
