EmuCR:OpenMSX OpenMSX v0.13.0 RC1 is released. OpenMSX is an open source MSX emulator which is free according to the Debian Free Software Guidelines, available under the GNU General Public License.For copyright reasons the emulator cannot be distributed with original BIOS ROM images. OpenMSX includes C-BIOS a minimal implementation of the MSX BIOS, allowing to play quite some games without the need to have an original MSX BIOS ROM image. You can also use your own BIOS ROM image if you please.

OpenMSX Git Changelog:
MSX device support:
- fixed bug in ASCII-8 mapper of MegaFlashROM SCC+ (SD)
- fixed bug in border drawing in text mode with YJK/YAE bits
- fixed bug in LMMC VDP command that appeared in Baltak Rampage greetings part
- fixed bug in YMF278 (OPL4 wave part) preventing samples to be played sometimes
- improved R800 timing for the CALL instruction
- added missing hardware VDP delay in turbo mode of MSX2+ machines
- improved accuracy and completeness of the Matsushita switched I/O ports
- added bits on turbo status and presence
- added the device to the Sanyo MSX2+ machines (without SRAM and turbo)
- removed fixed VDP I/O delay (because it is linked to the T9769 engine)
- added support for the different fixed VDP I/O delays of the different T9769
engines and added these to the configuration files of the machine that have
these (as far as that is known)
- added support for Epson Chakkari Copy, thanks to Rudolf Lechleitner and
Enrico Barbisan
- added 2MB MegaRAM extension (thanks to Mauricio Braga)
- added MIDI Interface 3 extension (cart that implements turboR GT internal
MIDI without BIOS ROM)
- added support for mapper of Japanese MSX Write
- added support for Spectravideo SVI-707 disk drive
- added support for the V9990 POINT VDP command
- added support for more realistic TMS VDP pallettes: it's now possible to
specify the saturation for the Pb and Pr channel (this is dependent on the
analog electronics in the MSX video circuit) which affects the palette. E.g.
all machines with TMS9x2x have a brighter palette now, as they should.
- added weird color palette of the Fujitsu FM-X RGB output (3 bit RGB)
- added a high-resolution timer extension: a cartridge with a 32-bit counter
that counts at 3.57 MHz. Useful for debugging and reverse engineering. Only
one such real cartridge exists :)
- added new machines: Aucnet NIA-2001 MSXturboR (thanks to PiterPunk/NYYRIKKI),
Frael BRUC_100 version 1 and 2 (thanks to RJP, FRS, et al), Pioneer UC-V102
(thanks to PiterPunk), Victor HC-80 (thanks to Daniele), Toshiba HX-23F and
HX-23 (thanks to FRS)
- added new extension: Sanyo MRS-001 RS-232C cartridge (thanks to mtn)

New or improved emulator features:
- fixed bug in parsing remote command XML (causing e.g. ROM names with special
characters not to get communicated to openMSX correctly from Catapult)
- fixed crash in 'reverse goback'
- fixed inserting a slotexpander in a specific slot
- fixed slowness issue when taking screenshots frame by frame
- fixed support of files larger than 2GB (e.g. hard disk images) on Windows
- fixed VDP status flag when using cmdtiming broking (infinitely fast VDP
- fixed excessive delay on 'reverse goto' with ram watch enabled
- OSD menu:
- fixed (un)plugging (connectors)/pluggables with spaces in their name
- fixed loading savestate with more than one . in its filename
- support up to 2 hard disk images (just like ROMs and disk drives)
- fixed bug that cassette image was removed when doing reverse goto 0
- fixed save_msx_screen for 2nd page of screen 7-12 (thanks to FRS)
- improved robustness of DirAsDisk
- added progress update reporting when doing operations that take a lot of time
(like calculating a hash of a large file or doing a large step in a replay)
- fixed unintended extra calculation of hash for hard disk images when
- made joystickN_deadzone setting's numbering consistent with joystickN_config;
both are now 0-based
- added debuggable for printer port, containing strobe and data byte
- added experimental support for ALSA MIDI out (Linux): now it's much easier to
connect MSX MIDI out devices to a soft synth or other application on Linux
- improved support for UNC paths on Windows (network drives)
- added a script to speed up the type command: type_via_keybuf (thanks to
NYYRIKKI for the initial version). Default type implementation can now be
tuned with the new default_type_proc setting.

Build system, packaging, documentation:
- to compile with gcc you now need gcc 4.8 or higher
- updated Visual Studio projects to Visual Studio 2015
- dropped support for Windows XP, because it seems Visual Studio 2015 has bugs
in supporting it
- dropped support for Dingoo A320, because its toolchain is now so outdated
that it can't compile the openMSX source code any longer
- added build, packaging and documentation support for GCW Zero
- dropped support for universal binaries on Mac OS X, as all supported Mac OS X
versions require x86-64 CPU's
- updated Tcl to 8.5.18
- updated libpng to 1.6.20
- now optionally link to libasound on Linux (for the ALSA MIDI support)
- added debug flag to build system that shows which commands are executed:
make V=1
- improved description on how to use MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD
