bootaram 0.1 released

"bootaram" is a small DOL (GameCube executable file) which loads and executes another DOL previously stored into the Auxiliary RAM of the console.

A bootloader or an IPL replacement like the "bootdash" can load into ARAM an executable, and let "bootaram" launch it.

Simple DirectMedia Layer library port updated

We have added double-buffering and automagic vertical retrace sync to the libsdl port. This will avoid unwanted frame-tearing if enabled.
As a quick test, we have repackaged SuperTux again with these new changes, making the game even more enjoyable :-)
libsdl code is already on CVS, and supertux-0.1.3-gc-linux-takeII on the Files page.
