Raine  Raine - Debian  Raine (Source)

What's New:

Ok, finally here is 0.63.11. It is mainly around bug fixes for neocd/neogeo to my dismay, I won't enumerate all the fixes here, see the forum or the git log about that, just know that it's much better now.
Except that I finally added the choice of the opengl filter : until now it has always been "linear", now you can choose "nearest" if you prefer. It is very blocky, but it's your choice. Go to video options / Renderer options to change that. It works only with the texture renderer of course, and I hope there will be more changes for opengl next time.
Also it's the first win32 binary using my new gentoo installation, so it's with a new compiler, and it has brand new dlls. Let's hope everything is ok, it should be ok !

pfeMame  pfeMame - Linux  pfeMame (Source)

What's New:

Removed the setting of the memcard folder from the run game command line.  This command seems to have been removed in the latest version of MAME for some reason.  I cannot yet find a reason why.

Mednafen (WIP) (32bit)  Mednafen (WIP) (64bit)  Mednefen - Mac  Mednafen (WIP) (Source)

What's New:

- Fixed a piece of ancient mouse button mapping/reading code that was so broken it worked most of the time; fixes broken mapping of more exotic(other than left, center, and right) physical mouse buttons to virtual buttons.
- Lynx: Fixed a minor stereo sound emulation issue thanks to a patch from "sage".
- Lynx: Fixed a bug that could cause Mednafen to crash when a game attempts to power-down the emulated Lynx(which may occur if a game is left unattended for a prolonged period of time).
- WonderSwan, PC-FX, MD, NGP: Fixed several violations of C/C++ sequence point rules in relation to call order in expressions of functions with side effects, that could lead to undefined/wrong behavior with certain types of compiler optimizations and features(e.g. PC-FX emulation was broken on gcc 4.9.x with -fsanitize=undefined -std=gnu++11).
