Conholio - A console for XaAES
Conholio sets out to replace other consoles like eg. Toswin with a faster and more accurate solution. This project is developed specifically with XaAES in mind but chances are it is useable under N.AES as well. The memory footprint might be considered high (probably a couple of Mb) but this is intentional - speed has the higher priority over memory useage. Since Conholio is in beta many things are still largely untested, so you use it on your own risc.
