As promised, the 0.9.1 release is now out. It is somewhat faster than 0.9, the core is around 30-40% faster, and MMU performance is nearly an order of magnitude better, but rendering performance is still holding things back overall. There’s also (finally) preliminary VMU support for anyone who cares about that – you can attach them in the controller settings panel.
As always, it’s available from the download page, release notes are here. And to make things even easier for Debian users, there’s now an apt repository available – just add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://www.lxdream.org/debian unstable main deb-src http://www.lxdream.org/debian unstable main
and do apt-get update, apt-get install lxdream.
Next version we’ll try and attack the rendering performance problem…
- Lots of core performance improvements, especially in the MMU
- VMU support (memory card only)
- GDB remote debugging support
- Quick-save states
- LIRC driver
- Now uses the ~/.lxdream directory (by default) to store runtime data
- Audio + input drivers are now built as plugins
