Bochs 2.3 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, Pentium Pro or x86-64 CPU, including optional MMX,
SSE/SSE2/SSE3 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.

Brief summary of changes since vorsion 2.2.6:

  • limited save/restore support added (config + log options, hardware state)
  • configuration parameter handling rewritten to a parameter tree
  • lots of cpu and internal debugger fixes
  • hard disk geometry autodetection now supported by most of the image types
  • hard disk emulation now supports ATA-3 (multiple sector transfers)
  • VBE memory size increased to 8MB and several VGA/VBE fixes
  • updated LGPL'd VGABIOS to version 0.6a
