You can now get xtrs version 4.3, a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model I/III/4/4P
emulator for Unix and the X Window System, from my TRS-80 Web pages:


Version 4.3 adds emulation of the serial port (connecting to a Unix tty
device), and of both Radio Shack and Micro Labs hi-res graphics cards
for the Model III. There are also several small bug fixes. See the included
ChangeLog for details.

Thanks to the folks who sent me information on Model III graphics cards
in response to my request in the xtrs 4.2 announcement! Now I have another
request: can anyone send me specs for TRS-80 joysticks?

General xtrs blurb:

xtrs is a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model I/III/4/4P emulator for Unix and the
X Window System. It includes lower case, the real time clock, hi-res
graphics, serial port, parallel printer, mouse, cassette, sound and music
output (requires OSS), 5" and 8" floppy disk drives in single and double
density, and even hard disk drives. The emulated floppy and hard disk
file formats are compatible with the popular MSDOS-based emulators by
Jeff Vavasour, Matthew Reed, and David Keil, and (if you choose a capable
enough file format), all features of the original TRS-80 floppy disk
controller are emulated. Under Linux, physical floppy disk drives are
also supported. Physical cassettes can be read and written too. The user
interface is a bit spartan, but it gets the job done.
