Default WinUAE 2.3.0 Beta 11

A new public beta of WinUAE, an Amiga emulator for Windows, version 2.3.0, is available. These are the changes.

Beta 10:
  • archive dragndrop worked too well, it unpacked everything, including adf filesystem etc..
  • do not expand zipped filename when dragdropping if zip only contains single file
  • insert floppy image dialog in disk swapper also "extracts" images inside selected archive
  • MODE1 "raw" 2352 data tracks didn't work in CDTV and image mounter + uaescsi.device non-direct scsi mode
  • MODE2 FORM1 data tracks didn't work in uaescsi.device SCSI emulation mode
  • CDTV mode didn't close CD handle when reseting
  • CDTV frame interrupts in non audio CD play mode stopped working (broke when CD+G was implemented)
  • overlay height configuration file setting was written incorrectly if it had non-zero value
  • statefile configuration entry is not lost when configuration is load and saved again
  • scan zip directory even if compression method is unknown
  • hardfile scsi emulation block validation checked against physical size, not virtual size: direct-scsi filesystem installed on dynamic hardfile didn't work very well..
  • dynamic hdf corrupted data if hdf's physical file size grew over 4G
  • bezel overlay support improved, aspect ratio correction, visible area autodetection, (image positioning is not yet pixel perfect)
  • pointless bezel configuration file size parameters (temporarily?) removed, bezel overlay configuration needs to be reset (it had stupid design fault)
  • DIWSTRT/DIWSTOP writes didn't check if hdiw state should have changed since last hsync (has always been broken but it wasn't really needed until Denise "bug" update in 2.0) fixes Friday at Eight / Polka Brothers
Beta 11:
  • internal CD audio handling update, status change (starting, started, end, error) callback added, CD32 and CDTV emulation does not poll for state changes anymore, better accuracy in audio start and end timing. CD handling rewrite should be complete now.
  • CD image mounter is now thread safe, no more weird and random behavior if mounted image was in use and image was ejected or replaced
  • fixed rare crash in display emulation (introduced when right border blanking update was added)
  • improved CD32 CD sound/animation timing
  • CD32 CD timing now works correctly in NTSC mode (previously used hardcoded PAL values)
  • "non-path" kickstart rom configuration file selection now only allows normal KS roms in kickstart_rom variable and extended roms in kickstart_rom_ext variable
  • fixed D3D non-shader mode crash introduced in b9
  • bogus autofire mode was enabled if same joystick was custom configured in input panel and in gameports panel (missing masking of flags variable, time to wear brown paper bag again..)
Download it at the English Amiga Board. It'll be later available here.
