A bugfix release this time, but we couldn't resist adding a few new exciting features:

Added a new recompiling cpu core which is easier to port!

Added a x86_64 and a mipsel_32 recompiling core.
Fixed hangups on certain platforms after long gameplay of several games.

Fixed several joystick bugs.

Improved cdrom support. (fixes for audio, iso and detection.)

Improved SVGA and VESA. (detection and display)

Fixed a few textmodes and improved ansi emulation a bit.

Fixed pcspeaker and certain types of soundeffects.

Added undocumented mousebackdoor.

Made mount and imgmount a bit easier to use. (ioctl by default, support
for ~ and ~username, auto size guessing for images)

Fix a few compilation problems on various hosts and a general code

Several small fixes that improve compatibility.

A small fix in this release allowed me to install and play nba live 95 once again! Qbix was really fast at spotting the problem when I reported it providing a fix. Once again the dosbox team made a small micacle happen! :ok:

Does this work in all OS? I have vista pretty much installed everywhere... Except one old laptop...

That's what I was affraid of...

I'm having trouble with a lot of programs in Vista... Most of the time, vista is a joy to work with, but in some cases, it's soooo troublesome that it gets annoying realy fast...

I got a unlock key for my phone with a program, and I couldn't get it to work in vista... I had to dig out an old laptop to actually get it to work...

And beleive me I tried!

Anyhow, I will try it out! thanks!

Does anyone here bother with CVS builds of dosbox? If so, is there usually any noticeable benefits?

Well a new version of DOSBox again, in such a short time.

Here are the list of changes as shown in the website:

# Fixed unitialized variable in joystick. (Fixes crashes on Vista and Mac OS X)

# Some bugfixes and speedups to the 64 bit recompiling core.

# Fixed sign flag on soundblaster dma transfers (Space Quest 6 intro)

# Fixed a bug in keyboard layout processing code and fixed certain layouts.

# Fixed Dreamweb.

# Improved speed unlocking when running cycles=max.

# Fixed a crash related to the tab completion in the shell.

# Improved aspect correction code. Should now be like how a real monitor handles it.

# Fixed a bug in the xms status report code. (Blake Stone 1.0 shareware)

# Added a lot more keyboard layouts.

# Fixed crash related to changing the scaler before a screen was created.

# Hopefully fixed compilation on *bsd.

# Enabled auto cpu core selection for recompiling core as well.

# Made the used joystick selectable when 4axis is specified.

# Added some hints for inexperienced DOS users to the shell.

Get it: Here
