XL2S Entertainment released a new version of SjASM, the Z80 cross assembler. New in this version are:

  • An ENDMAP directive
  • PHASE and DEPHASE as synonyms of TEXTAREA and ENDT
  • DEFM and DM as synonyms for BYTE
  • FPOS directives to set the file position, and an expanded OUTPUT directive
  • The possibility to generate a symbol file
  • Minor bug fixes

SjASM can be downloaded from the XL2S website.

I haven't had a chance to test it yet but is the symbol file compatible with for example blueMSX?

Iwas expeting REPT working into the MACROs...You won't see this kind of 'big' improvements in SjASM 0.39 versions.
Have you seen the new features on sjasmplus?Yes. Most of them.
I haven't had a chance to test it yet but is the symbol file compatible with for example blueMSX?I made this for use with the blueMSX debugger, which crashes on some symbolfiles SjASM creates...

Yes its most likely a bug or rather a limit on the size of the symbol strings (not sure how big but its quite small, like 20-30 characters). I've fixed this in the current dev build so if you want an updated version of the debugger, let me know (maybe I should put the bug fixed version on the bluemsx website)
