ADTPro is a feature-rich communications platform for exchanging disks and disk images between the Apple 8-bit family computers and the modern world. ADTPro has two main purposes in life: transferring Apple disk images, and bootstrapping Apple II computers when boot diskettes are long gone. ADTPro uses any of three communications mechanisms: serial (RS-232, USB) hardware, A2Retrosystems "Uthernet" ethernet card, Audio/Cassette ports, bootstrapping chores can occur with zero software at the Apple II end over serial and audio communications links. Extensive help and tutorials are available on the ADTPro website.

What is new in this release:

New functionality:

- [Audio] Client sends test stream of data for volume tuning on host side
- [Server] Text bootstrapping data is packed more densely for faster transfer

Bug fixes:

- Server and client agree on more situations where a transfer should be aborted
- [Client] Don't hang on a GS on startup if a connection isn't pre-established
- [Server] Flush the serial send buffer occasionally for our native serial port friends

What is new in version 2.0.0:

New functionality:

  • New protocol (code-named "Wide") that makes transport more reliable and significantly faster with tunable payload lengths
  • [Client] Arrow-and-Return interface for choosing a file to receive
  • [Client] Arrow-and-Return interface for the main menu
  • [Client] Directory listing allows for wildcard filtering of files, paging forward and backward
  • [SOS Client] Slow driver-based screen I/O subsystem replaced with custom code, significantly speeding up display
  • Separated ProDOS and SOS boot disks for ADTPro client; VDRIVE boot disk remains common to both

Bug fixes:

  • When the server decides to abort, the new protocol will not react to the "spray of commands" when the client (re-)sends data that isn't supposed to be commands
  • [SOS Client] Keyboard interaction works correctly
  • [SOS Client, SOS VSDrive] Changing serial connected-ness to the Apple /// no longer causes fatal SOS $02 errors
  • [SOS Client] Bare-metal bootstrap more reliable with timeout logic borrowed from Speediboot and made prettier with a logo and better display management
  • [Client] Hitting the escape key on the configuration screen truly aborts changes; this prevents DHCP from requesting a new IP address, for example
  • [Build] Re-architected 'Ant' build system to be completely dependency-driven; allows complete granularity of build targets
