  • Olivier Galibert fixed bugs introduced in u3 causing Atari / Midway drivers to crash
  • René Single changed where source filename based config files are stored to avoid conflicts with set name configs
  • Brad Oliver changed the static function implementations in memory.h to inline
  • Andrew Gardner and Andrew Zaferakis made improvements to Hyper Neogeo 64 rendering, 3d graphics can now be seen although emulation is still incomplete and Fatal Fury WA still needs a hack to boot
  • Nicola Salmoria added code to decrypt FD1094 CPU 317-0092 in states 0x00-0xff (0x00 is reset, 0x10 is IRQ) this is the CPU used by tetris, code is not hooked up yet
  • Juergen Buchmueller changed instr86.c: in the cpu/i86 code emulating the CMPSW instruction there is what seems to be a cut+paste bug: It calls the SUBB() macro where it should call SUBW(). Line 524 of instr86.c.
