FS-UAE 2.1.28dev Released

A new development version has been released. Changes in FS-UAE 2.1.28dev:

  • For directory hard drives, save file attributes in .uaem files (permissions, timestamp, file note).
  • Fix for directory hard drives so correct case is reported back to the Amiga when the Amiga opens a file with another case than what’s stored.
  • Report local time for files in directory hard drive.
  • Use re-entrant / thread-safe variants of time functions.
  • Reverted the scanline function to its older / simpler behavior, use the shader “scanlines-nonlinear” instead.
  • New shaders included: scanlines-classic (same as scanline CPU filter), and scanlines-nonlinear (a scanline filter which varies with pixel intensity and also introduces some pixel blending).
  • Text cache texture size is now 2048×2048 (was 1024×1024).
  • For automatic directory hard drive volume label, only use the part before an opening parenthesis (if it exists).
  • New options to configure what screenshots to save and where to save them.
  • A bit more compact naming of screenshots, and reset sub-minute counter for each minute (makes sorted names always cronological even with large number of screenshots).
  • Can now bind keys to action_screenshot, notification replaces previous notification (of same type).
  • Lua scripts can be used to read/write Amiga memory, position the output video rectangle, change shader (experimental feature).
  • Support /dev/tty as the serial output [Jason S. McMullan].
  • Patch for Linux CD ioctl support [Jason S. McMullan].
