WinUAE 2.8.0

WinUAE 2.8.0 released. http://www.winuae.net/

New features:

- Full A4000T and A4091 NCR53C710 SCSI emulation.
- A590/A2091 and A4091 boot ROM GUI selection.
- Separate graphics filter settings for native and RTG modes.
- 256k ROM image inserted in floppy drive emulates A1000 KICK disk.
- Super Card Pro image file support (.scp).
- SLIRP network inbound port support (default: 21, 22, 23 and 80, others can be added by editing configuration file)
- Input panel previously toggle-only events can be optionally set to on and off state, audio/video recording input event added.
- Joystick/joypad can be used to control light pen cursor.

Updates:

- Remaining 68000 cycle-exact mode timing fixes.
- 68000 reading from write-only or non-existing custom register compatibility improved.
- Big chipset edge case compatibility update, for example demos with vertical "copper" bars work perfectly, real hardware glitches in horizontal scaling are now accurately emulated and much more.
- 68040/68060 without emulating unimplemented FPU instructions is now fully compatible with Motorola FPU emulation library, FSAVE special FPU exception stack frames implemented.
- Programmed modes (Super72 etc) now automatically select best fit horizontal resolution and is more compatible with different filter modes, also display positioning is improved.
- Recently dumped Arcadia arcade system ROM images supported.
- Debugger full FPU and 68020+ bitfield, and other previously missing 68020+ only instructions supported in disassembler.
- Magic mouse + mousehack mode now always stops keyboard input when mouse is outside of emulation window, even if window still has focus.

2.7.0 bug fixes:

- Unformatted partition hardfiles didn't mount and had incorrect geometry.
- Resolution autoswitch was not compatible with new interlace scanline modes.
- 68020 CE mode FPU exceptions fixed, broke for example KS 1.3 FPU detection.
- Sound glitches in games that use OCS compatible "fake 60Hz" screenmodes.

Bug fixes:

- Keyboard led indicator state syncronization problems fixed.
- Fixed very rare JIT FPU bug introduced in 1.2.
- Vertical centering works again, improved horizontal centering.
- Full tablet emulation boot guru fixed.
- Graphics glitches in some borderblank and border sprite modes.
- Master floppy write protection setting was not loaded from config file.
- Some narrow AGA modes clipped some pixels from right edge of display.
- A590/A2091 didn't work in all supported CPU modes.
- CPU polled disk reading was unreliable in some situations.

And lots more.

Bugs reports in this thread will be ignored.

Wow great work thank !

- horizontal scaling are now accurately emulated and much more.

Is this the scroll register zoomer issues ? I remember Paradroid said it took him some effort to get his zoomer from Rink a Dink: REDUX working on real A500 and WinUAE.

Great work, thank you !

p.s.
Now when the emulator has reached almost 100% compatibility when working in A500 cycle-exact mode, I wonder whether there is still a way to detect for program/code does it works on WinUAE or a real Amiga ?!

Hi, first and foremost thanks heaps for the new release
That said, forgive the dumb question, is there a way for customizing this frontend? I mean something like MAME/MAME Plus etc.
Thank you

Yes, it is now 100% accurate, including correct glitches when "doing it wrong"

Thanks for this so much Toni!

I'm still addicted to real hardware, but WinUAE makes it possible to use the highest end Amiga I can NEVER afford!

Toni, I'm pretty sure if you had any interest in doing this you would have done it by now, but is there any chance you may decide to port the world's best Amiga emulator to Linux/BSD in the future?
