28th September 2012

The Z88 Development Team is proud to release EazyLink2 V1.0 Beta 2. This is our second public release after a couple of months of beta testing. The client is now finally available for Windows XP+, Mac OS X for Intel CPUs & Linux for Intel CPUs. To fully utilize all features, we recommend to also install the EazyLink popdown V5.2 or later on your Cambridge Z88, which this desktop client uses to communicate optimally with the Z88 (mandatory version is V5.0).
