Re: sQLux v1.0 (The Xmas Turkey)

With quite a bit of testing and some optimisations from Exile sQLux is now multi threaded, I have not had time to test on a slower platform like Pi0 v2 but on multi core systems like that it should show a good increase in speed of both CPU emulation and GFX rendering!

You can strap DCD, DTR and DSR together in the cable, and then rely on CTS/RTS only Considering none of those lines have been used on a PC for 15+ years, I wouldnt even guess at whether they are operat...
