Re: [hatari-devel] Hatari 2.1.0 has been released

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Nicolas and the whole Hatari team, thanks again! I still remember the times of people claiming that there will "never" be an usable Falcon emulator (same as there "never" had been an usable mp3 player for the Falcon... :)) and you all have proved them wrong!

Also, it's incredible how Hatari has become an actual development platform to ease life for many developers.

Btw, I wouldn't be so shy and packaged your cool intro along with the release, ideally with Hatari preconfigured just to run it. :)

     correct bus sharing with the CPU

     displayed lines, video counter reloading, timer B in mono mode
   - Add full support for MMU/MCU RAM configuration at $FF8001, support
     more RAM combinations (256 KB and 2.5 MB)
   - Some STX floppy images were not correctly emulated when verify bit
     was set in the FDC
   - Support for undocumented STOP behaviour on 68000
   - Fix some rare bus accesses order and stack frames
   - Fix some flags after DIV and BCD instructions
   - Improved memory timing for 68030 depending on RAM type
   - 68030 instruction cache was not correctly disabled when EI=0 in
   - Improve caches accuracy for 68020/30/40/60, with optional MMU
   - Large improvements to FPU emulation, including a new softfloat
   - MIDI support for Windows and macOS (with PortMidi library)
   - Add support for AVI files > 4GB (up to 256 GB)
   - SDL UI shows refresh rate and blitter usage
   - Several improvements/fixes when using VDI

    Falcon demos should run better
