Emulith, my ETH Lilith emulator, is ready for download at :

ftp://jdreesen.dyndns.org/ftp/Emulith

Emulith is a register-level emulation, in C, of the Lilith hardware.

You will need a reasonably fast PC running Linux and having at least 1280x1024 resultion.
First feedback I got shows that it also runs on OS-X.

Documentation, sourcecode and two diskimages are supplied, I will try to offer some more in the future.

Great! Well done - I'm most impressed!

As I don't have a native installation of Linux I ran it on Windows XP using
VMWare hosting a copy of openSUSE 10.3 which seems to work OK. I was able to
create a Hello.Mod program using 'edit' but it failed in Pass1 of the
compilation complaining that InOut sumbol files were not available
(directory shows InOut.SBL though). I'll give it a more thorough workout as
soon as I have a bit more time to spare,

I will also look into this. The Kermit I used had a bug which means that I lost the last byte of each of the 6000 or files I transferred. This seems to be the problem here.
I am working on getting a sector dumper program to run, so I can reconstruct diskimages with less pain.
Emulit also runs under OS-X and CygWin/x if you prefer those routes.

I've now had a closer look. I've found that InOut.SYM isn't present on the
disk5 image. When I switched to disk8 it compiled and ran OK,
