  • FLAC compressed CD audio tracks supported (cue+flac or cue+iso+flac).
  • Automatic center, max fullscreen and tv-like fullscreen options added.
  • uaescsi.device SCSI emulation, including full CD audio support.
  • Pause uaescsi.device CD audio when emulation is paused or GUI is open.
  • Support for configuration file delayed CD image insert, for example CD32 games F17 Challenge and Last Ninja crash if booted before CD32 boot screen appears...
  • Right and bottom border, if outside of display area, is blanked instead of filling with current border colour.
  • Full "Portable"/USB key mode (-portable command line parameter) and relative path support.
  • Borderless/minimal/normal windowed mode option.

      • Subchannel support (CDTV/CD32 CD+G).
      • Audio tracks fully supported.
      • SCSI emulation, CD images and non-SPTI mode full uaescsi.device CD audio support, most common CD SCSI commands emulated. SCSI emulation enabled by default.
      • Near-instant compressed (mp3/flac) CD audio and zipped CD image startup time.
      • More reliable CD/CD image and CD image/real drive on the fly change support.

    • CD32/CDTV more accurate CD audio and animation streaming.
    • Rawinput keyboard handling improved.
    • Cycle exact audio and disk DMA sequencer, Paula DMA request line timing fully emulated, (previously DMA accesses were "immediate", all other timing was already exact)
    • Direct3D bezel overlays and "old" overlays separated, bezel overlays are in overlays-directory, old overlays should be renamed as masks.
    • Direct3D bezel automatic display area detection and aspect ratio correction.
    • Disk images inside archives are automatically "extracted" to Disk Swapper and floppy drive paths when dragged and dropped.
    • 68000 and 68020 cycle exact CPU timing updates.
    • 68040 MMU emulation compatibility improved, Linux and NetBSD confirmed working.
    • Keyboard led handling improved.

    2.2 bugs fixed:
    • Triple/double/single buffer option was not saved to configuration file.
    • Autovsync didn't work.
    • Rawinput GUI F12 key ignored window focus.
    • Gameports panel joystick/mouse type (mouse,joystick,analog joystick,..) was ignored when configuration file was loaded.

    Other bugs fixed:
    • Direct3D 2x+ shader filter bad image quality.
    • CDTV CD timecode (Built-in CD player time counter).
    • CD32 CD end of play notification only worked if play was last sent CD command. (Fightin Spirit)
    • CD32 CD audio status reporting when attempting to play data tracks (Mission Impossible 2025)
    • CD32 pad 2-button mode fixes (F17 Challenge, Quik The Thunder Rabbit, ATR)
    • Audio length detection error if MP3 audio tracks had checksummed frames.
    • Built-in image mounter CD audio timecode offset fixed.
    • Z3/RTG RAM leak when restarting.
    • Direct3D scanlines can be (finally) enabled on the fly.
    • Configuration file cdimage0=:\ at startup didn't work.
    • Dynamic hardfiles didn't work reliably with DirectSCSI filesystems.
    • Dynamic hardfile data corruption if physical file size grew over 4G.
    • Some demos had blank display (broke in 2.0 Denise updates).
    • Transparent clipboard support crash fixes.
    • Initial ROM scan didn't detect Amiga Forever ROM keys correctly.
    • Joystick axis bogus autofire in some situations when remapping joysticks.
    • Rawinput was not enabled if only one (physical or logical) keyboard was detected.
    • RTG mouse cursor problem in D3D mode with enabled filter.
    • RTG 8-bit fullscreen mode colour error in some situations.
    • Miscellaneous custom chipset and disk emulation tweaks.
    • RTS and RTD odd address check was missing, fixes also mysterious JIT crashes.

    I don't think it's ever going to happen, but still.. A couple of years ago my bet was OS4 emulation via PearPC, however it seems no one is willing to work on it, then there's the obvious Piracy issue.

    While I continue to hope that someone with enough talent skill will revive E-UAE PPC project and create a 68K JIT for PPC based E-UAE.
