OS v 1.1 for Analogue's Pocket retro handheld adds features like a new reference tool to learn more about your games and save states so that you can more easily pick up a game where you left off

The Library is a reference tool that will show you details about a game, including the system, developer, publisher, and even the game revision. Analogue wants Library to become a "scholarly cataloging of the entirety of video game history" that you can look through. The evolution of the Library is expected to be available in September.

You can save your spot in Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and Game Gear games with the help of the Memories save states. Analogue plans to make it easier to remember what you were doing if you come back after a while, by including a screen shot of the spot where you made a save state.

The ability to save images from the Game Boy Camera and full-button mapping are expected to arrive in September.

Analogue has just announced that it is now allowing developers to make games for the Pocket. The 1962 game Spacewar! is being released in a Pocket version.
