Version 1.2 of Q-emuLator for OS X has been released, allowing a limited free trial mode for unregistered users. (For a detailed list of all changes in this update, see the version history)
Q-emuLator for OS X emulates the following QL hardware:
display (512x256x4, 256x256x8)
Aurora and Q60 video cards
file system (access to Mac files, QDOS floppy disks, QXL.WIN files, .ZIP and .QLPAK packages, microdrive and floppy images)
built-in ram disk
partial Gold Card emulation (to allow SMSQ/E to run)
System requirements: Mac with an Intel processor and OS X version 10.5 or later.
(If you have a PPC Mac and OS X 10.4 or earlier, you may still be able to run the old version for 68k Macs (442KB).)
To register Q-emuLator, go to the order web page.
The registration code will also be valid for any minor updates that may be released in the future (versions numbered 1.x only).

You can use the basic version of Q-emuLator for free for personal, non-commercial use. The free version emulates a standard, unexpanded QL (plus access to the Windows file system and QL floppy disks). CPU emulation speed is limited to approximately match the speed of a real QL.
If you like Q-emuLator, you may want to support it by buying a registration code through the order web page.
Registration unlocks many extra features like faster CPU emulation, quick loading of SuperBASIC programs, a more advanced file system supporting subdirectories, access to QXL.WIN files, .ZIP files, Aurora and Q60 video cards, TCP/IP driver, etc.
The code you get when you register will also be valid for unlocking future bug fixes and minor improvements (any future Q-emuLator for OS X releases with version number 1.x).
