Keir Fraser has released a new version of FlashFloppy (version 8.8), a new ‘open source’ firmware for floppy emulators. FlashFloppy will also read and write ADF and HFE images and is compatible with HxC config files and Autoboot selector. The FlashFloppy project started as a Free and Open Source replacement for the abandoned free Cortex firmware. The Gotek floppy drive emulator plugs into the Amiga and emulates a floppy disk. It accepts a USB flash drive which is connected into the front USB socket. Games and other Amiga disk images can be stored an the optional USB flash drive in Amiga Disk Format (ADF) and then loaded by a menu.
