Tweet FreeDOS 1.1
FreeDOS is a complete, free, DOS-compatible operating system that you can use to play classic DOS games, run legacy business software, or develop embedded systems. Any program that works on MS-DOS should also run on FreeDOS.
It doesn’t cost anything to download and run FreeDOS. Even better, you can view and edit our source code. All FreeDOS programs are distributed under the GNU General Public License or a similar open source software license.

Blocek 1.5b editor
Blocek is a text editor for DOS with unicode support. It means that unlike other DOS editors you are not limited to your current code page. It allows you to edit multilanguage documents, translate texts from one language to another, write modern web pages and so on. Alternatively can be also used as image viewer (BMP, PCX, GIF, PNG, JPG and WMF). Blocek 1.5b is a minor version with new features, including: + now can display the Exif info in JPEG files and export the Exif data; + can resize big images to optimaly fit the screen; + can now properly display the semi-standard VGA fonts; and bug fixes. Download from here: Blocek website.
Podcast: FreeDOS keeps classic computing alive
The LPX Podcast recently posted an interview with Jim about FreeDOS. From the podcast website: "A generation of computer users grew up using Microsoft DOS in the 80s and 90s, but Microsoft started to phase out the operating system with the launch of Windows 95. Decades later, there are still people playing DOS-based games and even corporations using DOS-based software. For more than two decades the developers of FreeDOS have been offering a free and open source alternative to Microsoft’s defunct operating system. I reached out to Jim Hall for a conversation about FreeDOS, classic computing, and free software." The podcast episode is about 30 minutes.
Looking for new developers for FDSHELL
If you are new to FreeDOS and are looking for how to contribute, may I suggest the FDSHELL program? This project aims to implement similar functionality to the old MS-DOS DOSSHELL.EXE program: a file manager, application launcher, and task switcher as either a TUI or GUI. Written in VisualBASIC For DOS (with some Assembly) the program hasn't been updated since at least 2013; development stalled at version 0.10(beta). It would be great to see new development on this interesting program. For example, you might use FLTK for the GUI, or update the program to use C/C++.
On July 1, mikulas released Links 2.13, the lightweight web browser for both text and graphics modes. Read the changelog, grab (GPLv2+) sources, and grab DJGPP binaries, also mirrored on iBiblio. Thanks!
Mateusz Viste has released DOSMid v0.9. The new version includes a bunch of fixes and features, including: - solves buffering troubles on MT-32 gears - fixes around how OPL percussion instruments are emulated - support for custom sound banks (IBK on OPL, SBK on AWE) - sound hardware is initialized once, instead of being inited for every song - reorganized the display so more MIDI textual data fits on the screen. You can download the new release at dosmid.sourceforge.net.
GCC 6.1.0 (/current/ DJGPP 2.05)
On April 28, the DJGPP developers released their compiler builds of the GCC 6.1.0 suite for various languages (C, C++, Ada, Fortran). You can grab binaries (and GPL'd sources) from your nearest mirror. Thanks to DJ, Juan, Andris, Eli, and more!
Testing the latest pre-release
Have you checked out the latest pre-release version of the updated FreeDOS installer by Jerome Shidel? Things are shaping up very well. Jerome writes with this note: "Highly experimental FreeDOS 1.2 installation program. So, I recommend only running it in a virtual machine or on a test machine." The 1.2 pre-release is looking pretty good. Get it at the FDI website.
Updated picoSNTP v0.9.1
Mateusz Viste writes with this update: "picoSNTP v0.9.1 fixes an obvious bug that I somehow missed the first time (shame on me). Specifically, picoSNTP was synchronizing the system's time fine, but not the date. That's fixed now. Credits to Rugxulo for kindly reporting it!" Download at picoSNTP.
FreeDOS is a complete operating system. If you choose to install this on your computer, you may overwrite the operating system you have now (for example, Windows.) If this is not what you intend, please stop now.
To use, download the CD image ("ISO" file) for the FreeDOS 1.1 distribution. You'll need to write this to CD before you can install from it. Boot the CD on your computer (or PC emulator) and follow the prompts to install.
