Tony Wilen has released the latest version of his continuing efforts with the Classic Amiga emulator - WinUAE (1.0).

Fixes for this release include:
  • Fullscreen resolution reset if selected display mode's height was larger than width
  • Sprite emulation improvements (Battle Squadron missing high score character and Bubba'n'Stix background mountains)
  • Directory filesystem file/directory datestamp modification if file/directory's protection flags or comment was modified (broke in 0.9.92)
  • Picasso96 RAM autoconfig area memory size error (16M or larger was always marked as 8M)
  • proper AmigaForever ROM path autodetection
  • AMOS filesystem freeze (workaround only, proper fix unknown)
  • Kickstart 1.2 was not autodetected (wrong CRC32)
  • improved JIT direct access memory area allocation (fixes JIT direct mode problems with some Pentium 4 or NForce 3/4 boards)
  • In some cases all priority-levels were changed to "Above Normal"
  • bsdsocket crash fix
  • Fixed swapped audio channels
  • Picasso96 compatibility problem with Directory Opus 4.12
  • Random crash fixed while using external drive sounds or while loading new configuration on the fly
  • Emulation fixes (Shinobi, Double Dragon 2.., broke in 0.9.91)

New Features include:
  • Catweasel Windows driver support, MK1/MK3/MK4 supported (MK4 direct floppy support and Amiga mouse support coming later)
  • Nero Burning ROM ASPI is automatically used if Nero is installed (better compatibility than Adaptec ASPI)
  • Arcadia (Amiga 500 based Arcade system) game support
  • Disk swapper-panel improved (path edit box and history added)
  • bsdsocket emulation does not ask for internet connection if requested address is localhost
  • Emulation improvements (some Digital's demos, demo Tenebra partially fixed, 3v Demo by Cave, New Year Demo by Phoenix, game Sci-fi graphics corruption, Battle Squadron highscores, Bubba'n'Stix background etc...)
  • Sound sample ripper
  • Improved debugger
