ZEsarUX changelog:
Improved menu environment:

Added new menu window type: ZX Vision. GUI Windows can be moved, resized, scrolled, minimized, closed, and change the focus to the background
Windows can be scrolled using mouse wheel
Warning and Error window messages now show an animation
Added first-aid help windows
Added Z80 assembler
Added setting to specify configuration file
Added key to save text windows contents to a file
Added setting to send a final space after every word in the osd adventure keyboard
Added Dandanator CPC emulation
Added machine Amstrad CPC 4128
Added CPC machines support to ZSF snapshots
Added tape to wav converter (tap, tzx, o, p to wav)
Added text driver (curses, stdout, simpletext) for Chloe 80x24 mode

Improved Debugger:
-Now you can disassemble on the Step-to-step mode from the Debug cpu menu
-Now you can assemble from the Debug cpu menu
-Added Chloe memory Zone

Improved TBBlue emulation:
-Better CPU usage:
--Use 4% less cpu time (in my machine) when only ULA and/or Tiles enabled
--Use 1% less cpu time (in my machine) when all layers enabled
-Added TBBlue Tiles video mode
-Added TBBlue "reveal" setting to view which pixels use a layer
-Resized display: now is twice bigger
-Fixed Timex hi-res mode 512x192

Improved ZRCP:
-commands smartload and snapshot-load are more intelligent now
-running in verbose or limit mode, or cpu-step command, can now update the display inmediately (having real video setting on)
-added commands: get-cpu-frequency, get-cpu-turbo-speed, get-tstates, get-tstates-partial, reset-tstates-partial

Improved vu-meters: high volumes are shown in red
Improved sprite viewer
-you can view sprites up to 512x512
-you can export sprites to C source code file

Improved file selector:
*now it remembers the last files used
*Windows: now you can use up to 20000 files in the same directory
*Windows: added drive selector (press shift-u)

Improved audio: silence detector is disabled by default. That should fix some Windows audio problems. Check Settings->Audio->Silence detector if you have configuration autosaving enabled

Improved disassemble window:
*now you can export the disassemble to text file
*you can now see the full opcode when debugging Sinclair QL
*you can now show/hide hexadecimal dump of every opcode

Improved hexadecimal editor:
*now showing subzones information

Improved MMC emulation: allow non-standard mmc file sizes

Fixed visual glitches in some menus when Pentagon machine and real video: audio wave, visualmem, ay piano, wave piano, view sprites
Fixed timex hires mode 512x192 on tbblue
Fixed visual glitches in some menus when interlaced enabled: audio wave, visualmem, ay piano, wave piano, view sprites
Fixed audio bug: sending a sample to the DAC by using Next registers, it wasn't reseting the silence detection counter, so sound would probably be frozen (and repeated again, and again...)
Fixed autoload on tbblue (on normal and also fast boot mode)
Fixed error managing TBBlue Layer 2 vertical scroll
Fixed triggering "opcode" condition breakpoint
Fixed emulating Inves interrupt bug
Fixed segmentation fault when showing electron on debug
