Just see below an excerpt from WinUAE 2.7.0 news -> http://www.winuae.net/
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Updates:

- Chipset emulation compatibility improved, more undocumented chipset corner cases emulated.
- CIA TOD counting is now cycle-exact.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Till now have been tested over 7500 OCS/ECS demos/intros in last 2 and half months ... and yes, it is really a huge number ... and the goal is close but it doesnt depends only on me if it will be ever finished/reached.


Note: The main goal was not just to make some of non-interesting/boring demos to work in WinUAE, than to locate a possible errors an thus improve the amiga emulation in a way -> first to compare a possible problem in emu with a real amiga to be sure whether a problem exist.

p.s. In a case you want to see an improvement between WinUAE 2.6.1 and newest 2.7.0 just try to test the following demo in both versions (with Cycle-Exact = ON):
