I've just uploaded the latest version of the Atari800 Emulator to my
web site:-

The emulator comes as source code for all versions or as an MS-DOS
binary. Sorry but I haven't got round to producing a new Amiga binary

Changes in 0.7.0

o F1 enters Menu System at any time. ESC returns you to the previous
  screen. Items are lcoated using the cursor keys and selected by
  either RETURN, SPACE, TAB or BACKSPACE. In most cases these keys
  can be used interchangeably, the exception is in the Disk Management
  Screen where RETURN is used to select a new disk and SPACE, TAB and
  BACKSPACE are used to eject a disk - If there is no disk in the
  virtual drive then SPACE, TAB and BACKSPACE will switch the drive
  off (Useful for Shamus).

o X11, SVGALIB & DOS - F5 is now Warmstart and Shift F5 is Coldstart.

o X11 - F8 Single Shot Screen Dump, Shift F8 continuous Screen Dumps.

o MS-DOS version runs about three times quicker now that the emulator is
  synchronising with a high resolution timer.

o MS-DOS version resets the screen back to text mode when finished.
