ZEsarUX changelog:
Added ZEsarUX Network Gaming protocol (ZENG), which allows you to play to any emulated game, using two ZEsarUX instances,
located each one on any part of the world or in a local network. Games doesn't have to be modified, you can use any existing game

Added Pentagon 16C colour mode emulation
Added 1024 KB RAM emulation for Spectrum & Pentagon
Added support for .scl files: can be converted from file selector menu pressing space
Added SNA saving support
Added PZX tape file support
Added ZX81 online game browser
Added Spectrum online game browser
Added total run time statistics
Added checking for updates
Added sending anonymous statistics use
Added setting --disablemenuandexit: it closes the emulator when the menu is going to be opened.
It's the same behaviour as previous --disablemenu. Now --disablemenu only disables the menu but does not close the emulator

Added Borland Gui Style

Added ZRCP commands:
-cpu-code-coverage: working with code coverage
-cpu-history: working with cpu history
-get-ui-io-ports: to get keyboard state and joystick
-get-snapshot: get a ZSF snapshot from ZRCP
-print-footer: print message on footer
-put-snapshot: put a ZSF snapshot from ZRCP
-send-keys-event: simulates key press/release
-set-ui-io-ports: to change keyboard state and joystick
-write-port: write value to a port

Added internal zip decompressor: no more need to use external unzip program
Added setting to reset configuration file to default values

Improved Debugging:
-added setting to dump .zsf snapshot when a cpu panic is fired
-debug CPU window: can now resize height and have more debug lines
-cpu transaction log: faster when opening transaction log file
-added key 'n' for "run" on debug cpu. Does the same as closing all menus and returning back to emulation

Improved TBBlue emulation:
-added scroll x,y on ula layer
-optimized ula,lores render routines: 2% less cpu on my computer
-added 1-bit tile mode

Improved Hex editor: can now copy to a different memory zone

Improved file selector: when asking for a directory, only shows directories, not files
Improved curses driver: symbol @ simulates ESC on menu
Improved snapshot loading: now setting "--sna-no-change-machine" becomes "--snap-no-change-machine" and applies to .sna and .z80
Improved curses driver: now can use utf "blocky" characters and have 64x48 resolution
Improved accurate Z80 timing: IM mode 0 is 1 t-state shorter than IM mode 1
Improved real tape loading: acceleration is disabled by default, added setting to save configuration

Fixed Pentagon border: now ukflag demo is perfect

Fixed placing menu windows when using zx desktop and machines TSConf, TBBlue, CPC and QL
Fixed bug loading .sna files when rom 1 paged in
Fixed very-old bug when loading Rocman game. This bug existed even on ZXSpectr. It fixes return flags when using tape traps.
Rocman loading screen was shown wrong (having the "any flag loading setting" disabled), but loaded. Enabling that setting crashed the game

Improved breakpoint parser:
-full expression parser: parenthesis, functions, sums, multiplications, etc. Can be used as a full calculator!
-now it's a lot more faster. Up to 7 times faster, so it uses 7 times less cpu than the old version

Improved watches:
-using new expression parser
-up to 10 watches on screen
-watches are saved on configuration file

Improved tbblue emulation:
-updated to the last Next Version files

-fixed full ink mode border colour
-fallback (transparency) colour is now a 9-bit value

Improved Adventure Text Extractor: now it supports Daad games too. So it supports Daad, Paws, Quill and Gac

Improved Waveform window: now the wave adjusts automatically to the zxwindow size
Improved Hexadecimal editor: now it resizes view to zxwindow height
Improved TSConf layers menu: Added "reveal" setting to view which pixels are used by a layer
Improved Scale 0.75 function: now it has antialias
Improved Cpu Transaction Log: now logfiles can be rotated automatically
Improved debugging: added a breakpoint action "putv" to write values on a Debug Memory Zone

Fixed Pentagon interrupt handling: now effects on border and hi-res work almost perfect!
Fixed interrupt bug behaviour where last opcode lasts >=32 t-states and interrupt in the middle
Fixed "Jeff Braine" manufacturer to "New Horizons". Changed Prism machine name to "Prism 512"
Fixed bug having more than 256 text to adventure keyboard words
Fixed bug on CPC vertical scrolling
Fixed segmentation fault bug when drawing CPC machine
Fixed segmentation fault bug when displaying first aid messages
Fixed bug redrawing zx80/81 display, with realvideo disabled, and menu char width less than 8
Fixed bug drawing menu window boxes when char width less than 8
Fixed zxvision left button handling: no longer sends enter when the user is dragging the window
Fixed machine names to be completely right: for example, "Spectrum 48k" becomes "ZX Spectrum 48k", etc
Fixed saving sprites when memory zone is not default zone
Fixed bug when writing divmmv memory on Chloe machine and underlying RAM in space 0000-3fffh become overwritten
Fixed bug crash when a message error was generated from ZRCP and menu had a tooltip open
