    [​IMG] DEV Tools Update

    Many of the NDS/GBA developer tools have received updates. My apologies for combining these releases into one news post, I felt this method better accommodates each update. I am quoting the original release information and linking to the homepage download. Hopefully this will aid developers in finding the new information without having to wade through my personal comments about each project.

    libfilesystem 0.9.1
    libfilesystem is a new library which provides support for the DS nitroFS. This code has mostly been contributed by Eris with modifications from WinterMute. Examples and docs for this will follow later. Use of this library with FAT filesystems will depend on a launcher which supports the libnds argv protocol.
