So, I'm curious what the plan is for support of the advanced Mega65 features like higher colors and resolution, better sprites etc. Will BASIC 10 support these, or will this only be supported with peeks and pokes?
Bit Shifter has made (and is continuing to make) many small and large enhancements to BASIC10, which are in their entirety now called BASIC65. But although some of the advanced features of the MEGA65 (such as enhanced DMA and 32 bit addressing) are supported in BASIC65, it’s not really supporting the new modes and capabilities. Think of it more as an urgently needed bugfix to the mess that Commodore has produced with BASIC10.
