ScummVM v1.8.0 is released. ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!Among the systems on which you can play those games are Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Dreamcast, PocketPC, PalmOS, AmigaOS, BeOS, OS/2, PSP, PS2, SymbianOS and many more...

- Alt-x no longer quits ScummVM. Use Cmd-q/Ctrl-q/Ctrl-z instead; see README.
- On POSIX systems we now follow the XDG Base Directory Specification for
placement of files for users. This effectively results in new locations
for our configuration file, our log file, and our default savegame path.
We still support our previous locations. As long as they are present, we
continue to use them. Please refer to the README for the new locations.
File locations on Mac OS X are not affected by this change.
