Bochs 2.3.7 released

Bochs is a highly portable open source IA-32 (x86) PC emulator written in C++, that runs on most popular platforms. It includes emulation of the Intel x86 CPU, common I/O devices, and a custom BIOS. Currently, Bochs can be compiled to emulate a 386, 486, Pentium/PentiumII/PentiumIII/Pentium4 or x86-64 CPU including optional MMX, SSEx and 3DNow! instructions.
Bochs is capable of running most Operating Systems inside the emulation including Linux, DOS, Windows® 95/98 and Windows® NT/2000/XP or Windows Vista.

Brief summary of changes since release 2.3.6:

  • More optimizations in CPU code - Bochs 2.3.7 is more than 2x faster
      than Bochs 2.3.5 build !
  • Implemented LBA48 support in BIOS
  • Added memory access tracing for Bochs internal debugger
  • Implemented Intel(R) XSAVE/XRSTOR and AES instruction set extensions
