higan v096 Changelog:
This release adds many UI refinements, new features, and GBA emulation improvements.

I´m looking for Super Famicom console donations, so that I can include hardware PCB scans and document differences for my SNES preservation efforts. If anyone would be interested in helping, I´d be very grateful. More about this here.
Also, I´ve attempted to add a WASAPI audio driver for the Windows port, but I´m having trouble getting it stable. If there are any WASAPI experts that could lend a hand there, that would also be very helpful!
