The goal of the Gryphel Project is to help preserve software made for early Macintosh computers, the computers that Apple sold from 1984 to 1996 based upon Motorola’s 680x0 microprocessors.
The center of this project - a family of free and open source emulators that allow such software to be used on modern computers
The rest of this project - software for the early Macintosh, links to alternatives to Mini vMac, links to related forums, lists of books, and more.
Latest News : March 15, 2020
The latest Mini vMac Development source snapshot fixes compiling Macintosh II emulation in the Variations Service (that was recently broken). It also supports “-lto upd” for “-t imch” and “-t mach”; that is, the new LocalTalk over UDP implementation by Rob Mitchelmore now works for OS X on x86-32 and PowerPC.
I’ve been a bit distracted by a little travel, a mild cold (really, I’m pretty sure), and too much reading news. Less distractions are expected in the immediate future, sitting at home.
