FS-UAE 2.6.0beta1 Released

I am pleased to announce the release of FS-UAE 2.6.0beta1 🙂

The current stable version is quite old, and recent FS-UAE versions provide many advantages over the older 2.4.x versions. I am releasing this as a semi-stable version. This means that new users are directed to download this version, but users of 2.4.1 / 2.4.3 will not get in-app update until after the beta phase.

Improvements over version 2.4.3 include:

  • Updated emulation code from WinUAE 3.1.0.
  • Support for PPC emulation (can run AmigaOS 4.x) via QEMU-UAE plugin.
  • More emulated hardware support (Toccata, A2061, Picasso IV, …).
  • Better support for modern OS versions due to using SDL 2.0.
  • Built-in support for multiple displays, and fixes for HiDPI displays.
  • The Launcher supports modern OS versions better due to using QT 5.x.
  • Much improved FS-UAE Launcher user interface.
  • FS-UAE mouse integration (Workbench cursor follows host cursor).
  • Updated internal kickstart replacement from AROS.
  • Dual joystick/mouse mode for joystick port 0.
  • Official builds for SteamOS (Linux + Steam runtime).
  • OS X apps are now digitally signed (Apple Developer ID).
  • Many bug fixes.
  • … and a lot of other improvements. See the ChangeLog entries for full details.

Support for IPF disk images is now provided by a plugin which you need to download separately.

    • Thanks, glad you like it 🙂 (Btw, 2.6.0beta2 is just released, which mainly contains joystick related updates)

  1. The emulation core and interface were rock solid before on Linux, but now the interfaces and window management using SDL 2 work so much better — excellent work!

  2. Thank you for this great soft. As a novice in Amiga emulators I found FS-UAE to be the right choice.

    • Thanks for leaving the feedback 🙂 -and enjoy! I hope to make it even more user friendly in the future.
