Hello, All!

This week, I have released the first major update to VGBAnext (VGBA-Android replacement), and also updated MasterGear for Android.

As you know, I had to replace the VGBA-Android app, removed by Google, with the new Emulator app. I have since renamed the new app to "VGBAnext". Unlike VGBA, VGBAnext supports *both* GameBoy Advance and GameBoy Color games, and also GameBoy Classic and Super GameBoy.

In VGBAnext 1.1, I have switched to the Material Design theme, with the flat title bar, new navigation, and light backgrounds. I have also updated all the icons (including app icon) and redesigned menus to make them all work uniformly. People who could not save gameplay for DropBoxed games, should find this bug fixed now.

MasterGear 3.1.8 had similar updates, with Material Design, updated icons, and rearranged menus. See below for the complete change lists.

VGBAnext 1.1 -- Universal GameBoy Emulator (GBA, GBC, GB, SGB)
* Switched to the Material Design theme.
* Added new app icon showing both GBA and GB.
* Added "up" buttons to all title bars.
* Revised all menus, making them work uniformly.
* Fixed uploading state back to DropBox after playing.
* Updated all icons to the newest Lollipop versions.
* Retired some icons, replacing them with better fitting ones.
* Removed application name from all title bars, to save space.
* Now defaulting to the "light UI" mode.

MasterGear 3.1.8 -- Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 Emulator
* Now targeting Lollipop, Froyo+ still works though.
* Now using Material theme on Lollipop.
* Updated all icons to the newest Lollipop versions.
* Retired some icons, replacing them with better fitting ones.
* Removed app name from all title bars, to save space.
* GBA link now redirects to VGBAnext.

Best regards,
