Please note that this is an alpha release - many things are not yet 
nkeynes@483
     6
implemented, it has many bugs (especially wrt rendering), and it's
nkeynes@483
     7
not likely to run at 100% speed.

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 3
nkeynes@483
    15
-------------------------
nkeynes@483
    16
* Speed improvements (translation core now runs at roughly double the speed
nkeynes@483
    17
  of M3)
nkeynes@483
    18
* GUI Overhaul - it's actually somewhat usable now. Also removed the gnome
nkeynes@483
    19
  dependency (now just needs GTK 2.0)
nkeynes@483
    20
* Sound fixes (aka, some sound actually works now)
nkeynes@483
    21
* A few minor bugfixes and tweaks.

nkeynes@403
    26
* A handful of minor bugfixes
nkeynes@403
    27
nkeynes@403
    28
No really, that's it. The good stuff is coming next version, honest

Changes since Milestone 1
nkeynes@354
    31
-------------------------
nkeynes@354
    32
* Complete rewrite of nearly all PowerVR2 code - The M1 code was largely a
nkeynes@354
    33
quick hack to get something running. It's done for real now.
nkeynes@354
    34
* Initial IO event system (not widely used yet)
nkeynes@354
    35
* Lots of bugfixes throughout the system
nkeynes@354

Known issues
nkeynes@354
    38
------------
nkeynes@354
    39
The following are known bugs (as opposed to missing features) that will be
nkeynes@354
    40
fixed in the next release, but are too large to be fixed for this version:
nkeynes@354
    41
nkeynes@354
    42
* Polygons that are partially clipped by the view frustum can be distorted
nkeynes@354
    43
quite badly
nkeynes@483
    44
* Limited depth precision causes tearing of view on some scenes.
