Release notes for Milestone 3

===================================================

     4
Please note that this is a development release - many 
nkeynes@403
     5
things are not yet implemented, it doesn't run at 100% speed, and it's not
nkeynes@403
     6
particularly user-friendly. If you're looking for something to just
nkeynes@354
     7
play DC games, you'll probably want to wait for the next version.

Having said all that, some games are known to run to at least 
nkeynes@354
    10
some degree (aka everything we've tried), and most homebrew works 
nkeynes@403
    11
perfectly or nearly so - feel free to experiment and let us 
nkeynes@354
    12
know how it goes.

Changes since Milestone 2
nkeynes@403
    15
-------------------------
nkeynes@403
    16
* Implemented the SH4 translation core
nkeynes@403
    17
* A handful of minor bugfixes
nkeynes@403
    18
nkeynes@403
    19
No really, that's it. The good stuff is coming next version, honest

Changes since Milestone 1
nkeynes@354
    22
-------------------------
nkeynes@354
    23
* Complete rewrite of nearly all PowerVR2 code - The M1 code was largely a
nkeynes@354
    24
quick hack to get something running. It's done for real now.
nkeynes@354
    25
* Initial IO event system (not widely used yet)
nkeynes@354
    26
* Lots of bugfixes throughout the system

Known issues
nkeynes@354
    29
------------
nkeynes@354
    30
The following are known bugs (as opposed to missing features) that will be
nkeynes@354
    31
fixed in the next release, but are too large to be fixed for this version:
nkeynes@354
    32
nkeynes@354
    33
* Some games experience geometry corruption of varying levels. This is
nkeynes@354
    34
believed to be caused by an SH4 core bug.
nkeynes@354
    35
nkeynes@354
    36
* Polygons that are partially clipped by the view frustum can be distorted
nkeynes@354
    37
quite badly
