EmuCR: DOSBoxDOSBox SVN r3979 is released. DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD. However, it is not restricted to running only games. In theory, any MS-DOS or PC-DOS (referred to commonly as "DOS") application should run in DOSBox, but the emphasis has been on getting DOS games to run smoothly, which means that communication, networking and printer support are still in early development.

DOSBox also comes with its own DOS-like command prompt. It is still quite rudimentary and lacks many of the features found in MS-DOS, but it is sufficient for installing and running most DOS games.

DOSBox SVN Changelog:
Implement INT 2E -- fixes Gold of the Aztecs and a few other games. Also, stop writing uninitialized junk into first shell's command tail at startup.
EXEC improvements, mostly for the load-but-do-not-execute function.
Prevent DOS buffered input function from hanging in an infinite loop when redirected input reads a linefeed or reaches EOF.
Graphics mode text drawing improvements: font source according to machine type, background color in 256-color modes, row wrapping.
Reset CurMode object when detecting that the video mode number in BIOS memory was modified directly instead of through the INT 10h mode set function. Fixes cases where BIOS behavior is influenced with the mode number, such as the status lin...
Map inactive video memory regions as empty rather than filled with RAM. Fixes later version of Sargon 3 on color machine types.
