Retro Downloads The oldest releases from Tom Novelli are: BIN Retro 1 BIN Retro 2 BIN Retro 3 BIN Retro 4 In 2001 I took over. Retro 6 was mostly focused on the native (standalone, no operating system) model, though some Linux support appeared.

It continued the platform support focus and gained a new option: support for running over the L4 micro kernel.

It was also the only release series to offer ANS support.

The code was totally rewritten to run on a portable virtual machine called Ngaro. By 10.3, Retro was fully self hosting on the VM and was used to rebuild itself.

It was the first series of releases to guarantee long term compatibility: I made a promise to maintain, as much as possible, source compatibility for a five year period. BIN Retro 11.0 BIN Retro 11.1 BIN Retro 11.2 BIN Retro 11.3 BIN Retro 11.4 BIN Retro 11.5 BIN Retro 11.6 Retro 12 The current generation is a marked shift in approach. It uses a new VM, based on (but simplifying) the Ngaro VM from 10 and 11, and a much simpler core language and implementation. It offers some benefits as it's easier for me to adapt to modern platforms since it doesn't assume a traditional TTY style interface.
