What was the July 4th plan for it?

I wasn't home on that day, but I have been trying to stream NES homebrew now and then. (KHan also uses twitch for stuff like that too, BTW.)

I was hoping that someone would put it into their mix on that day.

Lately I'm on an effort to make sure all my major projects on GitHub have at least one tag (that is, one release). So I decided to push out Thwaite 0.04, with mostly behind-the-scenes improvements from the past month.
  • Chain certain initialization functions
  • Group functions into conceptual sections using a call graph
  • Use other libraries I've since made (ppuclear, Popslide)
  • Pently audio: Rename subroutines to match the latest driver version
  • Build a second ROM as NROM-256 (32 KiB PRG ROM + 8 KiB CHR ROM), with libraries in the top half, in case I build a multicart
  • Fix a bunch of uninitialized variables (#5; reported by jroatch)
  • Port build tools to Python 3
  • i18n: Move dialogue, tips, copyright screen, and practice menu text to separate UTF-8 text files
  • Compress all text using DTE
  • Cut scene draws all 12 buildings and pans across them
  • Zipfile: No more zip bombing
