     1 Release notes for lxdream 0.8.4
     2 ===================================================
     4 Please note that this is still an alpha release - many things are not yet 
     5 implemented, it has many bugs (especially wrt rendering), and it's
     6 not likely to run at 100% speed.
     8 Having said all that, some games are known to run to at least 
     9 some degree (aka everything we've tried), and most homebrew works 
    10 perfectly or nearly so - feel free to experiment and let us 
    11 know how it goes.

    43 Changes since Milestone 3
    44 -------------------------
    45 * Speed improvements (translation core now runs at roughly double the speed
    46   of M3)
    47 * GUI Overhaul - it's actually somewhat usable now. Also removed the gnome

    59 Changes since Milestone 1
    60 -------------------------
    61 * Complete rewrite of nearly all PowerVR2 code - The M1 code was largely a

    63 * Initial IO event system (not widely used yet)
    64 * Lots of bugfixes throughout the system
    66 Known issues
    67 ------------
    68 The following are known bugs (as opposed to missing features) that will be
    69 fixed in the next release, but are too large to be fixed for this version:
    71 * Graphic artifacts related to triangle sorting and/of lack of depth
    72   precision.
    74 System requirements
    75 -------------------
