For the owners of the C-One there is another update for the Minimig core. Version V1.21 makes use of the large memory chip on the FPGA extender: In addition to 2M Chipmem and 1M fake-fast memory, there's now another 8M fastmem usable from any program, resulting in a total of 11 megabytes of usable memory. The update also fixes a few memory-timing problems, so any startup-problems should finally be a thing of the past. You will need the FPGA extender card if you want to use the Minimig core.
