Mr. Atari has written a new DOS for Atari users, it’s small, only 2K so you have more free memory, boots in only a couple of seconds, compatible with DOS2, 2.5, MyDOS, supports wildcards, has a ESP8266/Rverter R:Driver: for WiFi connection to BBSes etc., an 850 compatible R: driver, a formatter for LitDOS disks and all the most used DOS commands.
Not bad for 2K!

Kay Savetz has been working on a Renderer for SVG files in Turbo BASIC. In a remarkably short time he has gone from simple lines to the results below.
Starting with simple rectangles, he has gone on to add Circles, Ellipses, Lines, PolyLines, Polygons, Scaling, Paths, Subpaths, Curves and Polybéziers. I’m sure we are all anxiously awaiting the Fill routine.
You can follow along with the progress and offer words of encouragement on Twitter here.MORE
