Analogue has just released the 1.1-beta-6 firmware update for its Analogue Pocket handheld, and it brings with it some much-requested features.

The most striking of which is the fact that the system's much-hyped 'Memories' functionality is finally getting some attention. Screenshots have been added to your Memories, and you'll also get a thumbnail image for your save states, making it easier to identify which one is which.

Elsewhere, keyboard and mouse support has been added to the Analogue Pocket Dock, which will allow support for openFPGA cores based on computers, such as the Commodore Amiga, ZX Spectrum and C64. A few bug fixes have also been included.
