Changes in 2.6.5 (June 1, 2014): Brief summary : - CPU: extra 5-10% emulation speedup with new trace linking optimization - CPU: implemented new instructions (e.g. AVX-512, SHA, XSAVEC) - CPUDB: added 2 new CPU models - Bugfixes for CPU emulation correctness (including some critical ones) - Gui debugger output window now can be used as a log viewer - Added built-in slirp (user-mode networking) support (ported from Qemu) - Added global sound config option and volume control support to the devices - Added new experimental gui 'vncsrv" using the LibVNCServer library - Rewrite of the bximage utility in C++ for image creation, conversion and resize Detailed change log : - CPU - Bugfixes for CPU emulation correctness (critical fixes for XSAVE, VMX, TBM/BMI and RDRAND instructions) - Implemented FCS/FDS Deprecation CPU feature - Implemented SHA instructions emulation - Implemented XSAVEC instruction emulation and XINUSE optimization in the XSAVEOPT instruction - Implemented AVX-512 instructions emulation (experimental) ! CPUDB: Added Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU (Haswell) configuration to CPUDB ! CPUDB: Added AMD A8-5600K APU (Trinity) configuration to CPUDB - Replace 'SSE' and 'AVX' .bochsrc option with single 'SIMD' option which controls presence of all CPU SIMD extensions from SSE to AVX-512 - Extra 5-10% emulation speedup with new trace linking optimization. The optimization is enabled by default when configuring with --enable-all-optimizations option, to disable trace linking optimization configure with --disable-trace-linking. The optimization require to compile Bochs with at least -O2 optimization level on gcc. - Bochs Debugger and Instrumentation - Added disam for Bochs internal instruction representation, especially useful for instrumentation - Updated definition of instrumentation callbacks, see description in instrumentation.txt / Fixed instrumentation examples - added capability to use the gui debugger output window as a log viewer - General - Increased max. device log prefix size to 6 and added / modified prefixes - plugin version now uses the native DLL handling code for all Windows ports - critical bugfixes in save/restore functionality - Configure and compile - configure and compilation fixes for Cygwin and Visual Studio environment - configure option --enable-cdrom now only controls the presence of platform-specific code for device access - building plugin version with MSVC nmake now supported - Config interface - Added global sound control option for the driver and wave input/output - Added new bochsrc option to control the speaker output mode - Added support to specify the initial time for 'clock' option in ctime(3) string format - Added support for the LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH variable with MSVC plugins - All SB16 / ES1370 options are now changeable at runtime - textconfig: added menu item for saving configuration at runtime - Added bochsrc option for the Voodoo Graphics emulation (experimental) - I/O Devices - Hard drive / CD-ROM - seek latency implemented for ATA/ATAPI read commands - portable ISO image file access now available on all platforms - Networking - added built-in slirp (user-mode networking) support (ported from Qemu) - removed the "slirp backend" support (required external slirp binary) - slirp/vnet: all supported TFTP extension options implemented now - Sound - SB16 / ES1370: added volume control support for wave output - SB16: fixed audio distortion when playing stereo wave files - ES1370: added 'wavemode' support similar to the SB16 - soundwin: added capability to specify the ID of the MIDI device to use - Serial - Serial mouse detection fixes - Busmouse - Non-functional device rewritten to make it work in DOS and Win95 guests (use --enable-busmouse to configure and "mouse: type=bus" at runtime) - ROM BIOS - PS/2 mouse function: allow setting mouse packet size to 4 for wheel support - GUI and display libraries - Added new experimental gui 'vncsrv" using the LibVNCServer library - RFB: set maximum resolution to 1280x1024 (same as vncsrv) - RFB: don't wait for client connection on startup if timeout is set to 0 - Added mouse wheel support to the rfb, vncsrv and wx guis - wx: added viewer window for the Bochs log output - win32: fixes and improvements for the fullscreen mode - Tools - bximage utility rewritten in C++ for image creation, conversion, resize and redolog commit. Now vmware4 and vpc images can be created.
