ZSNES v1.5 Released

I am pleased to announce another long awaited release of ZSNES. This time around we made many improvements to the software in general, fixed, and added many new features.
We also have made several updates to the emulation fixing bugs that never worked right before.
We also started a major rewrite of all the major emulation cores, but unfortunately it won't be ready until a future release.

People who maintain packages for various distros should use "./configure --enable-release --disable-cpucheck force_arch=i586 " to build this release, see the documentation for more details.... read more
