WinUAE 0.8.8 Release 6 is out! - August 04,1999 by JoseQ
The much awaited new version of WinUAEhas finally been released! You can download it from theEmulatorDownload Page as usual. Weighing in at 629 Kilobytes this new version is nopuppy, it includes a long list of Fixes, Additions andChanges that are most likely going to make you droolwhile the download is completed. And here is the list ofeverything that has happened since the previous release,direct from the page:

  • FIXED: Picasso96 screen-modes are now limited by the amount of RTG memorywhich has been allocated. This way, if the user has selected 1-megof RTG memory, they can't try and open a 1600x1200 24-bit display.
  • FIXED: TCP/IP Networking from within WinUAE works better for some cases.
  • FIXED: .dms files FINALLY work again, provided that xdms.exe is availableon your system.
  • FIXED: Creating a new drawer from Workbench and changing its default nameno longer crashes.
  • FIXED: File-system bugs like renaming, and some obscure problems regardingsub-directories being in-use and undeletable, even when they're not.
  • FIXED: Obscure bug relating to the 'a' bit (archive-bit) as seen with theAmigaDOS PROTECT command.
  • FIXED: And yet more file-system bugs.
  • FIXED: Option to disable sound when WinUAE is minimized wouldn't properlyrestart sound when WinUAE became visible again.
  • FIXED: MIDI selection is only available in the GUI when serial-emulationhas been enabled.
  • FIXED: Second joystick button now works properly for some games whichdidn't initialize the POTGO register correctly. (B.C. Kid)
  • FIXED: Speedup in windowed-mode file-system access, due to use of aDirectDraw Clipper, and not parsing the clip-list manually.NOTE: This may cause a slow-down on some systems??? Feedback!
  • FIXED: Source-archive has been properly updated to include some missingfiles.
  • ADDED: DirectX 6.x support for a Picasso96 speed increase. This also letspeople have different refresh-rates for full-screen mode, asopposed to the old version's 60Hz limitation.
  • ADDED: DirectSoundNotification support, for better double-bufferedDirectSound under Win98 and Win2000 (if sound-card supports it).
  • ADDED: Refresh of the window while dragging the GUI around on top of it.Only works in windowed-mode for now. Fullscreen with a GUI willstill result in black painting.
  • ADDED: Support for serial-on-demand (shared serial-port) in the GUI.NOTE: Untested. Feedback!
  • ADDED: Enforcer-hits generate a beep and flash the window.
  • ADDED: Amiga In A Box (AIAB) link in About tab of GUI.
  • ADDED: About tab of GUI has a nicer look.
  • CHANGED: Line-mode default is "Doubled", so that the proper height screensare displayed by default.
  • CHANGED: Compile options and some source-code, for a speed increase andsize decrease.

    I'm sure you're out to enjoy this wonderful emulatoralready, so I'll let you go. Have a good time!
