lxdream 0.8.2 released
Posted in Releases

Change of plans – because svn looks likely to become unstable for a little bit with recent work (mmu changes are fairly invasive, and there’s quite a performance penalty that I haven’t optimized away yet), I’m releasing 0.8.2 as it is now (without TLB) for the benefit of those who need the fixes since 0.8.1.
Note: There are no significant changes to the emulation (ie no change to compatibility) – If 0.8.1 runs properly for you, you don’t need 0.8.2

Changes from 0.8.1

  • x86-64 architecture support
  • Preliminary Mac OS X support
  • Pbuffer support (to support OpenGL drivers without EXT_framebuffer_object)
  • Support for more recent CDI and NRG image file versions
  • Minor bugfixes

MMU-in-progress
Posted in Development

Currently working slowly through the MMU TLB implementation and testing. If all goes according to plan (as if that ever happens), we should have a running linux-dc sometime this month. Once that’s working I’ll cut a 0.8.2 and then get on to all those lovely rendering issues…

In unrelated news I’ve had to install an anti-spam filter on the forum, as the spam levels were starting to get out of control. So far it looks to be working well – a little too well, possibly – if anyone is having problems registering or posting, please let me know by email and I’ll sort it out.
