WinUAE v2.7.0 Beta 14 - Only two weeks to go for the final of this great Amiga Emulator!

Emulated Consoles/Systems : Amiga, Amiga CD32
Release News :  Toni Wilen has just released another update for v.2.7.0, beta 14. Although we did miss beta 13, but not to worry as this beta contains even more fixes and improvements. According to Toni, we are just two weeks away from the final version of 2.7.0! If you prefer final releases, the previous final 2.6.0 is still available, but until the next release, enjoy this beta!

Beta 14: (max 2 weeks to go)
- GUI didn't work in fullscreen modes.
- Input panel lost all keyboard events (not even Test button accepted any key presses) in some situations, already non-working config files can't be fixed. Older bug.
- New frames interlace mode (without blacklines) now only redraws changed lines.
- 68040 without FPU: unimplemented FPU exception used wrong exception vector.
- 68020+ DIVL div-by-zero exception in cycle-exact mode didn't skip prefetch phase.
- Do not set lightpen triggered state when BPLCON0 lightpen bit is set unless lightpen is also configured in gameports or input panel.
- Fixed crash if disabled keyboard had (old) gameport mappings.
- Autoscale size change comparison used wrong value (width, not height) causing slow down, forced config change check every frame.
- Added configurable directory filesystem file/directory name length limit, currently config file only, filesys_max_name_length=x, files and dirs with longer names are not seen in Amiga-side (directory operations only)
- Really fixed sound sync timing issue, partly introduced in b1 and b13. 
Beta Discussion

From our previous article :

Also available are easy to install OS packages which again you may need certain legal files, but there is nothing more satisfying than having an Amiga OS running through an emulator. Further more, you can make separate installs of WinUAE by making a WinUAE.ini file in the same directory as WinUAE.exe. However make sure when you update, that you delete everything in the WinUAE.ini file(back up previous).

- We will not provide Amiga retail games or Operating System files

Another great alternative if you have the games and system files is FS-UAE which is a pretty damn awesome front end that uses WinUAE at it's core. They also have a game database which you need to register for, which shares everyone else s working configuration files for easy Amiga game loading.
