Re: [hatari-devel] Release time for 1.8.1 ?

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


I don't think next release version discussion got concluded.
I still propose it to be 1.9.0.

Fixing Hatari snapshot handling before release is too
large change, but IMHO we need to do it before next release.
It can easily be done in such a way that previous Hatari
versions reject new versions correctly.

IMHO these should be handled before release, first
is annoying and second one is user API.

I'll handle Fopen next and then maybe mouse warp.

Nicolas already fixed this.

At least the worst issues don't happen anymore,
so I think this is good enough for .0 release.

I think this goes after release, I don't have time
to look into it before.

It would be good if somebody would do some
lightweight testing for this (see below).

This is done.

I think SDL2 window position issue can be left after
release if Thomas doesn't have time to look into it
as SDL2 support is new and isn't enabled by default.

In my testing everything has worked fine.

If somebody on list could look at these,
it would be appreciated!

Instruction cycles should be now checked to be OKish,
but I would like data cache stuff to be fixed too.

If it doesn't get fixed, new profiler support for
data cache would need to be reverted before release
(memory needed for profiling 256 MB TT-RAM is
too much to keep useless data members).

If it gets fixed, I'll still need to update Hatari
manual a bit and remove debug warnings.
