Many thanks plouf for your feedback.

I'm going to put in place an Amiga classic environment to be able to test.

Btw, I would avoid releasing an FPU version of this plugin. This is very likely to cause all sorts of trouble because almost all FPU emulations are never as precise as the original hardware and so you might see precision issues when serializing data from floating point values to string and back. And there is very little gain in having an FPU version of such a plugin. FPU versions really only make sense when there's lots of floating point math going on like in plugins decoding video or audio...

OK thanks for the advice.

I was not aware of that.
