     1 Release notes for Milestone 1 ("Smoke and Mirrors")
     2 ===================================================
     4 This is an early development release. Most things don't work. Many things
     5 that do work only do so by sheer luck. Framerates are typically 1-4 frames
     6 per second on a 3Ghz P4. In short, don't expect to run any actual games on
     7 it at this stage (I have not even tried, myself).
     9 Having said that, the following are known to run with at least some degree of 
    10 success:
    12   * Most KOS based demos, and a number of other demos (An exact inventory of 
    13 working demos is not being maintained at this stage).
    14   * The BIOS bootstrap (you can boot NRG and CDI cd-rom images)
    16 System requirements
    17 -------------------
    18 GTK 2.0+
    19 Gnome 2.0+
    20 ESounD 2.36+  (if you want interrupted stuttery sound[0])
    21 GCC, Make, etc.
    23 [0] Actually the ARM chip can be run independently, in which case the
    24 performance is reasonably decent.
