WinVice 3.3


Die Neue version wurde mit dem GTK - GUI toolkit erstellt.
Deshalb öffnet sich jetzt eine Dos-Konsole zusammen mit dem Emulator.

Das ist neu:

* Changes in VICE 3.3
=====================

This release stabilizes and introduces the GTK3 UI as the primary user interface
for all major ports. For "lesser" platforms we still have the SDL1/SDL2 based
interface. All other user interfaces have been removed. RIP

We are still looking for dedicated maintainers for the Windows- and macOS ports,
if you want to help improving these and/or want to provide binaries, please get
in touch. (with vice-emu.sourceforge.net)


** General
----------

- Old, unmaintained, ports removed:
* MacOS Cocoa: use SDL or Gtk3
* WinVice: use SDL or Gtk3
* BeOS/Haiku: use SDL
* AmigaOS: use SDL
* Unix Xaw: use SDL or Gtk3
* Unix Gtk2: use SDL or Gtk3
* OS/2: use SDL

- Fix building against external ffmpeg >= 4.0

- Fix errors in multi-SID code

- added single SNES pad emulation (compatible to Ninjas adapter/TrapThem64)

- Make VICE much faster by using -O3 vs -O2

- add a slot number before the literal name of a game-controller, which is less
confusing when more than one controller of the same type is used

- fix parsing of the commandline with -config first

- added dutch to list of keyboard mappings

every 4 seconds on a 32bit machine with nanosleep()

** SDL UI
---------

- Add toggle button in x128 for the Go64Mode

- ignore 'dotfiles' in the fileselector on *nix

- added browsing inside disk and tape images.

- added pageup/pagedown/home/end key mappings, and support them in the menus,
file-selector and text viewer

- Terminal- or UI based monitor can be selected at runtime in all ports

- added a hack to get rid of spurious keyup/keydown events after switching
from/to fullscreen

- generate suitable fonts for the ui at startup, use some custom gfx for the ui.
fixes the problem that the ui chars will screw up when the user selects a
japanese chargen :)

- when changing color- or crt emulation settings, print a color matrix on screen
and update the resources in realtime

- UI cosmetics:
- fix slider length, use custom chars for slider
- make screen all black before entering the UI
- added basic default window icon
- fix display of literal key names for SDL2

- major rework of SDL2 video renderer to work natively with all supported
graphics acceleration technologies (OpenGL ES, DX11, Metal, etc). Fullscreen
support and resized windows now preserve aspect ratio properly on any screen
size.

- SDL2 now respects "GL" filter mode. As a bonus it does so even when the
renderer is not OpenGL.


** VSID (Gtk3)
--------------

- Remember last-used-directory for the open file dialog
- Add drag'n'drop support
- Add HVSC support:
* Support SLDB
* Support STIL


** VSID (SDL)
--------------

- implemented drag'n'drop
* Changes in VICE 3.2
======================

** General
----------

- New (experimental) GTK3 native port, this and the SDL(2) port will replace
all other ports (which will get removed) in VICE 3.3 and onward.

- Handling of the `-keybuf` command now works properly for all emulators and
RAM sizes.

- Fixed handling of LOAD"$$" with virtual devices.

- Fixed @CD, @MD and @RD commands for virtual filesystem devices.

- Fixed NEOS Mouse emulation.

- Call the new CIA "8521" instead of "6526A" (which is wrong) in the UIs.

- Added 4sid support.

- Fixed tape wobble.

- Erase timing fixes in flash core.

- Don't allocate sectors on tracks > 70 in the BAM of 1571 images.

- Ethernet emulation: fix register mapping in rr-net mode.

- reSID: fixed envelope bugs shown by testprogs/SID/env_test/.

- Fixed 6509 CPU port issues.

- Added support for TAP virtual network interface.

- Fixed drive clock overflow. Drive and host went out of sync on clock overflow
(every ~4G cycles), which would break loading or custom drive code in the case
loader/stuff is not idle during overflow window. Also drive would execute
~4G cycles out of sync, which made the emulator freeze for a while.

** Monitor
----------

- Fix monitor 'm' command buffer overflow.

- Added conditional on values in memory to breakpoint handling.


** SDL changes
--------------

- Cosmetic overhaul of the SDL UI.

- New drag'n'drop support for the SDL2 port(s).

- Fixed monitor display of printables with the 'M' (memdump) command.

- Fixed drive status display in statusbar.

- Added "advance frame".

- Disable the mouse pointer unless we really need it.

- Change MacOSX SDL menu key to F10 to accommodate old MacBooks etc.

- Change default menu key for sdl amiga based platforms to 'F10'.

- Added default hotkey files (with hotkeys similar to existing GUIs).

- Added various keymaps for use with keyrah in combian/retropie.

- Added controller mapping file for PS3 controller.


** Android changes
------------------

- Do not enable mouse emulation by default.


** Mac OS X changes
-------------------

- Reinstated the Cocoa UI's Video Settings dialog. Some of the controls
don't work properly, but it's better than nothing.

- Added a PET model selection menu to the Cocoa UI.

- Fixed Cocoa UI's CPU memory window display. It still requires the monitor
to be activated before it will show anything, however.


** OS/2 changes
---------------

- Removed native OS/2 port. The native OS/2 port has been lagging behind
severely, and the recently added SDL OS/2 port is up-to-date, making the
unmaintained native OS/2 port obsolete.


** C1541 changes
----------------

- Fixed illegal characters in filenames for the read and extract commands.


** C64(SC) changes
------------------

- Fixed enabling/disabling memory expansion hacks.
