This article contains links to download an early release of version 3.0 of the ForthTerm terminal program. ForthTerm version 3.0 should run on all newer version of windows (win7, win8, win8.1, win10). ForthTerm version 3.0 is available for both win32 and win64 based systems. Until there is a stable release I will update this article with the most recent versions.

New Features and bug fixes:

  1. Improved screen drawing functions.
  2. Cursor tracking was relaxed so screen display is less erratic when the view port is smaller then the terminal screen.
  3. New development tool chain (Rad Studio 10.3.1) used to develop and compile ForthTerm.
  4. FTP client now closes connection after loading/saving a document in the code editor.

NOTE: The FTP client was added to support the my MV4th32 Raspberry PI bare metal Forth (still a work in progress).

NOTE: The current setup program will overwrite your current settings with default settings. If you want to keep your old setting you must save a copy of the configuration file "C:\Users\my name\AppData\Roaming\ForthTerm\Config\ForthTerm.config", where "my name" is your windows user name. You may also want to save any terminal key mapping files in the folder "C:\Users\my name\AppData\Roaming\ForthTerm\Key Maps\".

You should uninstall any old version of ForthTerm before installing the new version.
