RE: newRPL - build 1089 released! [update:build 1111]
I'm just catching up with the state of the PC simulator; does this work under Linux when compiled, and will it be the 1089 release, or the latest-at-this-time hot smoking 1111 release? I only see the 1089 release for Windows on SourceForge. Can I simply plug in the latest 1111 firmware anywhere?

Additionally, I couldn't initially get that 1089 to work, I kept getting the following error:

Code:
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "windows" in "". Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
... followed by the following error:

Code:
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I then removed the QT dlls and tried running e:\qt\5.9.2\msvc2015\bin\windeployqt.exe "e:/newRPL Desktop/newrplui.exe", but got a weird error message in QtCore.dll, understandably.

Code:
The procedure entry point _Z21qRegisterResourceDataiPKhSO_S0_ could not be located in the dynamic link library Qt5Core.dll.

I suspect that's because the newrplui executable was compiled against QT-5.8.0-mingw32. I reran windeployqt from the mingw53_32\bin and that gave me a working newRPLui. Finally.

Personally, I've found that running the newRPL firmware on x49gp is a better option, except for the png being the original HP50G keyboard instead of the modified one. It's nice that I can now click on each of the individual keys rather than just relying on the PC keyboard for the newRPLui.
