No, I haven't heard about it. Maybe people thought it wouldn't be important
for me to know:-)

They're right. There's a special module named wildargv that needs to be linked
to the executable to add wildcard expansion. This module is copyrighted so I
cannot add it to the sources. The nightly build uses what is in the source
archive, which means it doesn't link in the wildargv module. I will try to
find a solution for it.

That's difficult, because it's not under my control, so it wouldn't
necessarily match the other builds. But I would be happy to add a link.

I'm pretty sure I cannot resolve all issues, but it's even more difficult if
people don't tell me about problems:-) cc65 has a lot of features, and
therefore it's not the tool for everybody. But if there are real problems, I
would be glad to know about it.

I don't remember anyone complaining. Are there known issues?
