Just in time to celebrate the new year 2012, the latest version of Hatari has been released ; you can get it on http://hatari.tuxfamily.org/ or directly in http://download.tuxfamily.org/hatari/

Sources are of course available, as well as prebuilt binaries for Windows (if someone can supply an OS X version, it will be added too).

Please note that Hatari is no longer hosted on berlios.de, but on tuxfamily.org.

Small changelog :

- More accurate FDC emulation (correct status bits and commands' timings, DMA transfer by blocks of 16 bytes, floppy change detection). This should fix a lot of non working games, as well as a few demos.
- More accurate microwire clock emulation
- SCSI class 1 (ICD) command support for drives > 1 GB
- Improve shifter (add another method to do 4 pixel hardware scrolling,
    better emulation for 0 byte blank line)
- Some fixes to the IKBD emulation
- Better filters and model for sound emulation
- Correct VBL timings in TT monochrome (double clicking works now)
- More cycle accurate Falcon DSP <-> CPU emulation.  All the demos that
  needed 32Mhz CPU with the old CPU core in Hatari v1.5, work now at
  correct 16Mhz with the WinUAE CPU core
- 030 MMU emulation with the WinUAE CPU core
