PocketNester still alive

Although there has been no update for more than 3 years since last public release, PocketNester is not dead yet and I'm trying to come up with a new release in a not far future.

PocketNester 0.6 released!

PocketNester 0.6 has been released! This release runs faster, supports more games, and has less bugs. It also introduced virtual pad support.

Detailed changes:

* Runs most games 5%~50% faster than 0.5.x(dependent on games)
* Added full screen and virtual pad support. Integreted CxImage lib by ing.davide.pizzolato@libero.it to load TGA format pad image. Notice that when virtual pad is in use(stylus is touching the LCD), the emulating will be unavoidably slowed down.
* Merged external sound support from unofficial onester
* Displays paused game image. Making screen * shots is now much easier :)
* Merged mapper 5(KOEI games), 8, 16(Dragon Ball Z series), 24, 26, 51, 66, 69, 77, 85, 119(PinBot) support from unofficial nester.
* Merged ROM correction data from unofficial nester. F1 Race doesn't has glitches any more.
* Auto detect and run MMC2/MMC4 games(Punchout, Fire Emblem etc) in compatible mode. Keep in mind that such games will run slower than other games, but I think it is still acceptable(20~30 FPS on my 200Mhz XScale) :)
* Auto detect and run Elite in PAL mode(you don't need to enable the PAL Mode).
* Improved compatibility of "lazy updating" PPU core. More games are OK now, including Shadowgate(wrong spr), After Burner(wrong bg), PinBot(wrong bg), Micro Machines(color problem) etc.
* Fixed a cycle accumulating bug in 6502 core. The temporary no sound problem is gone.
* Fixed a bug of fast PC handling in 6502 core. 68-in-1 works now

This release features zip support, faster speed and bug fixes.
