GNU MDK 0.3.3 has been released.  It is available from and mirrors of that site (see list of
mirror sites at http://www.gnu.orgørder/ftp.html) [0].

GNU MDK provides a simulator of D. Knuth's MIX computer, and a
development environment to write, run and debug MIXAL programs on it.

New in this release:

** The output of the contents of binary devices in gmixvm can be
   configured to be in decimal or word format (for each block device).

** The main gmixvm window is not shown until it is completely drawn.

** The commands édit'and 'compile'are now understood by gmixvm. The
   external programs used can be configured using the menu entry
   Settings->External programs.

** The commands édit'and 'compile'can be now executed without
   argument (both in mixvm and gmixvm). When no argument is given, the
   MIXAL source file corresponding to the currently loaded MIX program
   is edited/compiled.

** Bug in CON fixed : 'CON wexpr'didn't compile correctly unless wexpr
   represented a valid instruction; now, wexpr can evaluate to an
   arbitrary value (Vasilij Ozmetelenko).

** The completion key for the gmixvm command prompt is now TAB
   (instead of RETURN).
** The gmixvm command prompt maintains now a history of previously
   typed commands, which can be visited using the arrow keys (UP for
   previous command, DOWN for next one).

** When a file is reloaded by the virtual machine (both in mixvm and
   gmixvm), the currently set breakpoints are conserved.

** When compiling a source file which is not in the current directory,
   correct path is now stored in the compiled file.

** Fixed a bug which caused gmixvm to segfault when creating the
   virtual machine (Andrew Hood)

** The GNU MDK documentation is now distributed under the GFDL
