JavaCPC Desktop is a brand new Amstrad CPC emulator. It is based on JEMU (http://sourceforge.net/projects/jemu) and is an extremely improved release from JavaCPC 6.7.
JavaCPC Desktop is designed to be used on Windows systems only, but maybe can run also on other systems, but a few features will be missing then.
JavaCPC is no freeware any longer! It's new license is "Donationware".
What does this mean :
- JavaCPC and all of it's contents are free, and are allowed to be shared
- It's available sources are not complete but you are allowed to use them
- If you register JavaCPC, please also think about a little donation. (JavaCPC consumes much time in it's development)

- Other people who wants to offer JavaCPC on their own webpages, please contact me under webmaster at cpc-live.com
