It's finally here, Hatari 2.0.0 !

You can get it from http://hatari.tuxfamily.org/ or directly in http://download.tuxfamily.org/hatari/2.0.0/

Sources are available, as well as prebuilt binaries for Windows (in 32 bit and 64 bit mode) and OSX (thanks to Troed).

Many thanks to all the people who contributed to this version in different ways (code, bug report, testing, reverse engineering and documentation of the real HW, ...), see doc/authors.txt for a list of devs / contributors.

Major highlights of this new version :

    - Hatari can use SDL2, this will take advantage of HW acceleration
      on the host PC and greatly enhance perfomance on OSX for example
    - Hatari now uses one single CPU core for all machines (ST, STE,
      TT, Falcon). No more need for 2 different binaries
    - video emulation now supports the 4 STF wakeup states for MMU/GLUE
      and a much more accurate state machine for border removal
    - CPU emulation was improved a lot by using WinUAE's CPU and fixing
      some low level behaviour : IACK sequence, exception/interrupt
      stacking, 2 cycle accesses, bus accesses timing depending on
      memory region, instruction pairing, ...
    - Falcon DMA sound was fixed
    - support for MegaST and MegaSTE machine types
    - improvements to Gemdos HD emulation
    - SDL UI reworked with more options
    - resizable window when using SDL2 (using HW acceleration)

Fixed demos :

    - {Closure} by Sync, working in STE mode and the 4 STF wakeup
      states :)
    - many Falcon demos where sound was randomly noisy
    - ... and many more, see compatibility list for a list of programs
      improved with Hatari 2.0.0

See release-notes.txt for the full changelog

Stay tuned for next Hatari version, more improvements are coming !
