Big changes behind the hood are a change to the tile renderer so that it builds much quicker, and a swap of the Gtk port to C++ bindings, both of which should be unnoticeable. Michael Buckley also wrote a completely new macOS port, due to the complete deprecation of the classic APIs the old port used.

General:
  • Restructured tile.cpp tile renderer from heavy macros into C++ templates, significantly lowering compile time. (yoffy)
  • MichaelBuckley provided a brand new MacOS port that is completely rewritten based on newer, supported APIs.
  • Fixed an out-of-bound memory access in sound DSP. (Sour, byuu)
  • Revert default SFX2 clock speed increase.
  • Added a render position hack. Fixes glitches in several games.
  • Allow an SRAM mapping up to 128KB.
Win32:
  • Apply turbo mode volume when rewinding.
  • Added menu entry to load oops files, and an option to confirm before saving or loading states.
  • Fixed sound volume resetting when sound reinitializes.
  • Added a save-state preview dialog.
  • Added save banks for up to 100 states
  • Added support for relative-style save slots
  • Fixed blargg rf filter.
  • Show command line options on -h and /?
Gtk:
  • Added an option to show time. (taimoorgit)
  • Use a submodule for glslang, because it doesn't guarantee API stability.
  • Switched to GTK's C++ interface, gtkmm3. This effectively drops GTK+ 2.0 support.
  • Joysticks can now be hotplugged. (jraby)
Unix:
  • Added audio output threading. (yoffy)
  • Added screensaver prevention on joystick use. (greg-kennedy)
  • Fix YUY2 conversion. (greg-kennedy)
  • Add alsa output support. (cjacker)
  • Add I420 conversion. (cjacker)
