openMSX 0.8.2 released!
« on: January 28, 2012, 03:48:45 pm »
We just released openMSX 0.8.2, including binaries for OpenDingux.

Release highlights (tuned for Dingoo users):

MSX device support:
- Bug fixes:
  - (regression) sprite colors in screen 7/8 (visible in Ikari for instance, as mentioned on Dingoonity forum)
  - VDP emulation bug, which was visible in Psycho World's 3x3 power up matrix
- Accuracy improvements:
  - MSX-MUSIC (YM2413 (Okazaki)): implemented SETTLE (or DUMP) phase
- Added emulation of the following mapper types:
  - Baby Dinosaur Dooly
  - Manbow 2 2nd release
  - Best of Hamaraja Night

New or improved emulator features:
- Video output:
  - Added horizontal stretch for SDL renderer (useful for Dingoo for instance).
    As horizontal stretching is enabled by default, the CPU usage of openMSX
    when using the SDL renderer will now be higher than before. Set
    horizontal_stretch to 320 to disable it and gain some performance (but have
    a less accurate aspect ratio of the screen).
- Sound generation:
  - Sync sound to EmuTime (greatly improves sample playback in e.g. Real Motion
    and TRAX Player
  - Added new sound driver based on libao
  - Fixed sound quality of blip resampler
- OSD menu improvements (mostly useful for hand held users):
  - added connector submenu
  - added support for running tapes
  - added support for horizontal stretch setting
- Miscellaneous:
  - Fixed 64k ROM mapper detection

Build system, packaging, documentation:
- Upgraded 3rd party libs
- Optional additional dependency on libao
- Moved Dingux port to OpenDingux: openMSX now only compiles for OpenDingux

And of course the usual various bug fixes.

Nope, Dingux is not supported anymore. However, OpenDingux is quite cool and almost ready for release. Just install the beta or wait for the final release...!

If you really want to run the new openMSX on legacy Dingux, you can do so by using the old startup script and changing SDL_HWSURFACE into SDL_SWSURFACE in the source code and rebuilding openMSX. But we are not going to release a binary for that anymore, please upgrade to OpenDingux instead.
