|Miss Parker||Hardware||The hardware is up and running. We all enjoy our first batch of 5 Miss Parker devices.
One Miss Parker Plus is also available. One new v1.1 interface board is also running.
There'll be more to come with the Miss Parker v1.1...
|Firmware||The firmware has reached a quite stable state. MIDI support still needs to be added though.||Software||An intuitive project manager is available. This tool can be used in combination with Miss Parker but also supports more devices like the Wavefront (formerly Alesis) Evaluation board; anyone can add support for his own device through use of dynamic libraries. Memory map files, project initialization parameters and themes are also supported now. The Miss Parker Plus extension is supported as well but only for internal AL3201 effect for the time being.|
|VirtuAL3101||AlkAsm/AlkDisasm||These tools are finalized.|
|AgALag||AgALag is being modified to generate also project for the Miss Parker project manager, alpha test is ongoing with the generation of project, beta test is ongoing with the generation of groups.|
|AlkSim||The simulator is available and no development is planned in the near future except for generating the tool reports in pdf.
Some new functionality may be added as the graphical version will come; this graphical version is by the way under development now.
