NovitÓ nella versione 0.137

0.137
-----

IMPORTANT NOTE: As of this release of MAME, several important things
about the system have changed. Please read the following items before
attempting to compile this new version.

1. A new tool chain for Windows, based off of gcc 4.4.3 prerelease,
is now REQUIRED. Go to http://mamedev.org/tools to get the new tools.
The code included with 0.137 WILL NOT BUILD with the old tools.
The new tool chain has support for building 64-bit MAME builds with
gcc, as well as built-in DirectX headers, and C++ support, which was
missing from the old tools.

2. Non-Unicode builds of Windows MAME are no longer supported. The
options to turn this off in the makefile have been removed, and
future changes are likely to solidify this requirement. If you are
still (God forbid) running on Win9x, you will need the unicows.dll
library to run MAME. Download unicows from Microsoft.

3. All code in MAME is now compiled as C++, plus there have been a few
small changes that take advantage of the C++ language. For the most
part, there is no effect on how drivers are written, except for some
nicer accessors to devices and address spaces. Future improvements to
take advantage of the C++ syntax will evolve slowly, and will be done
internally. We are not interested in outside attempts to do this work
for now.

4. The SDL OSD for MAME is now shipped as part of the main source
package. SDL builds for Windows are now regularly built as part of the
validation sequence for a new release. Thanks to R. Belmont,
couriersud, and Olivier Galibert for their work on the SDL port over
the years.

Doesn't do much at the moment, but the increase in documentation value is
significant (we're documenting the sample compression format, for one thing).

New driver for Sigma B52 system. ACRTC implementation is a bit hacky
due to its preliminary emulation status. [Roberto Fresca]

lethal.c - Verified clocks and vsync from orginal PCB
[Corrado Tomaselli]

- Moved compatibility validation into MAME core from MESS.
- Made GAME_NO_SOUND check done on MESS too.
- Removed MESS dependent checks
- Renamed GAME_COMPUTER_MODIFIED to GAME_UNOFFICIAL to mark
unofficial hardware modifications

hng64 : Initial implementation of 0x10-sized palette pages for 3d
objects. This makes most environment colors correct in sams64.
[Andrew Gardner]

[VIA6522] Read port A/B only if some pins are inputs. [Curt Coder]

Fixed Dip Switches and Inputs (after verification of the Z80 code)
for 'dambustr' and clones. [stephh]

Internal debugger using the mame rendering infrastructure [couriersud]
- added support for arbitrary number of containers for render_target
- added command-line parameter -debug_internal (-di) to use the
internal debugger when in debug mode
- internal debugger supports all views except memory view
- added "Debug" view to layout/vertical.lay to create more place for
debug views in vertical games.

NOTE: The colors are ugly. Font rendering needs improvement. There
are no shortcut keys right now. There is still a lot of room for more
improvements. However, it works and does not depend on any ui
toolkit. The interface has been designed to support displaying views
programmatically e.g. from the ui.

Short HowTo:
- Start MAME with "-debug -di"
- Console, register and disasm views will be shown. Place them by
dragging the view on the title bar.
- Views can be resized by dragging the bottom-right yellow square.
- The view having the focus has a green background title bar.
- Hit "Tab" (IPT_UI_CONFIGURE) to show the menu.
- Console and disasm views support a very simple facility to
support entering commands and addresses. Just start typing.
Hit "enter" when finished.

irobot.c - Added XTAL values from manual and hooked up to driver for
main/sound CPU. [Phil Bennett/Tafoid]

rungun: fix text tilemap lookup for big-endian targets. [R. Belmont]

Added Intel 8021/8022 CPU types. [Curt Coder]

irobot.c - Added/verified Dip Locations per manual and test mode.
[Tafoid]

Tatakai no Banka [Mamesick, Angelo Salese]

Fixed Dip Switches and Inputs (after verification of the Z80 code) for
'espial', 'espialu' and 'netwars". [stephh]

[couriersud]

Redumped sound roms in Cyber Tank
[Antonio Gonzalez Jr., Dumping Union]

psikyosh improvements: [PsikyoFan]
* Add support for per-scanline scroll/zoom and per-column effects.
This is adds a significant performance penalty when enabled.
Removed warning flag from s1945ii and s1945iii. s1945iii needs
confirmation of correctness and x-zoom is a guess.
* Virtually completed video rendering. Only flipscreen missing (and
conversion to tilemaps one day). Per-line effects now respect
per-line alpha, priority and bank. As a result daraku text works
without any hacks.
* Added various optimisations to get back all games to a playable
speed.
* Fixed missing soldivid effect on final boss that was broken due to
above daraku hack.
* Added accurate scaling effects based on measurements from hardware.

Created new template class tagged_list which manages a simple list
along with a tagmap. Changed memory regions, input ports, and devices
to use this class. For devices, converted typenext and classnext
fields into methods which dynamically search for the next item.
Changed a number of macros to use the features of the class, removing
the need for a bunch of helper functions. [Aaron Giles]

Replaced device_find_child_by_tag() -> device->subdevice().

Added Am29000 CPU core [Phil Bennett]

Removed stdlib.h from osdcomm.h. [couriersud]
- Added #include stdlib.h where now necessary
- Fixed Solaris build
- Fixed building unidasm for OSD=sdl on win32

Tools now include stdlib.h where needed. [couriersud]

Changed core library files to use osd_malloc/osd_free where
appropriate. [couriersud]

Added checkautodetect target to makefile. [couriersud]

Permit zlib and expat to be linked dynamically without changing the
makefile by specifying "=0": make BUILD_ZLIB=0 BUILD_EXPAT=0
[couriersud]

Improved vsnet sprite/roz alignment [David Haywood]

Converted the following drivers to use a driver_data structure:
[Atari Ace]
- bigstrkb, mugsmash, pass, sbugger, sderby, shadfrce, shootout,
silkroad, spbactn, sslam, stlforce, taitojc, tunhunt,
welltris, wwfsstar, xyonix
- 39in1, safarir, sbowling, shougi, skeetsht, skyarmy, sliver,
spoker, spool99, srmp5, srmp6, ssingles, sstrangr, sub, supdrapo,
superdq, supertnk, suprgolf

hng64 : Implemented low-res texture decoding. All red/green polygons
should now be textured. [Andrew Gardner]

Correct a long-standing design flaw: device configuration state is
now separate from runtime device state: [Aaron Giles]

* There is a new class 'running_device' which represents the
state of a live device. A list of these running_devices sits
in machine->devicelist and is created when a running_machine
is instantiated.

* To access the configuration state, use device->baseconfig()
which returns a reference to the configuration.

* The list of running_devices in machine->devicelist has a 1:1
correspondance with the list of device configurations in
machine->config->devicelist, and most navigation options work
equally on either (scanning by class, type, etc.)

* For the most part, drivers will now deal with running_device
objects instead of const device_config objects. In fact, in
order to do this patch, I did the following global search &
replace:

const device_config -> running_device
device->static_config -> device->baseconfig().static_config
device->inline_config -> device->baseconfig().inline_config

and then fixed up the compiler errors that fell out.

* Removed device_get_info_* functions and replaced them with
methods called get_config_*.

* Added methods for get_runtime_* to access runtime state from
the running_device.

* DEVICE_GET_INFO callbacks are only passed a device_config *.
This means they have no access to the token or runtime state
at all. For most cases this is fine.

* Added new DEVICE_GET_RUNTIME_INFO callback that is passed
the running_device for accessing data that is live at runtime.
In the future this will go away to make room for a cleaner
mechanism.

* Cleaned up the handoff of memory regions from the memory
subsystem to the devices.

Fix bug introduced with astring changes that caused malformed tokens
when writing out cfg files. [Aaron Giles]

Fix bug where memory regions were not properly enumerated for the
debugger memory view. Also, stop creating empty regions for disk
regions. [Aaron Giles]

Added Guru(TM)-readme to trackfld. [Curt Coder]

Refactored the CIA 6526 interface, adding SP/CNT callbacks. Fixed
serial transfer. [Curt Coder]

Convrted the rest of devintrf to classes and moved management
functions into methods of those classes. The most wide-ranging
change was converting device_reset() to device->reset(). Apart
from that it was mostly internal shuffling in the core. [Aaron Giles]

Added OS/2 autodetect to makefile. [couriersud]

Autodetection of PTR64 can be inhibited now by specifying PTR64=0.
On mixed 32bit/64bit targets identifying themselves as 64bit this can
be used to build a 32bit executable. [couriersud]

Added OpenBSD support in makefile/sdl.mak. Fixed XBSD detection of
PTR64 (uses amd64). [couriersud]

Fix bug that mistook a non-NULL token to mean that a device was
started. Fixes -video ddraw issue. [Aaron Giles]

Replaced vsnes bank installs with RAM installs, since the banks were
never changed. [Aaron Giles]

Exit from the unhandled exception filter cleanly now. Use
SetErrorMode() to disable the appearance of dialog boxes when crashes
occur. [Aaron Giles]

Fixed a typo in pgm.c that was causing a memory test error and
corrected some comments [XingXing]

Made direct accessors for device configuration state. Currently they
just call through to the get info function. Removed old macros that
wrapped calls. [Aaron Giles]

Removed some aliases between CPUINFO_ and DEVINFO_ to help clarify
usage. Also converted a few more places to use the new accessors.
[Aaron Giles]

Replaced drgninja set with one dumped from a genuine Data East PCB
[dlfrsilver]

Added MEC-M1 PCB layout to the dec0 driver and updated some clocks
and ROM names [Guru]

hng64 : Partially decodes translation-only geometry type 0102. This
makes the road appear in the racing games, the edge of the ring in
buriki, and a hallway during the buriki attract. [Andrew Gardner]

The return of the "misc" [couriersud]
- Added sdlmisc_<targetos>.c again. This was necessary since
certain tools create stubs for e.g. osd_break_into_debugger.
If we do not have this in a separate file, the link stage may
break.
- Applied OS/2 patch [Credit: KO Myung-Hun]
- Cleaned up #includes. Removed stdlib.h were possible.
- More malloc to osd_malloc rename.
- SDL monitor modes are read now when they are needed. This is now
consistent across platforms.

GTK Debugger work [couriersud]
- glade-2 can now be used again to edit the debug.glade file.
- No more need to edit the files created by glade-2
- All "activate" handlers now pass the parent window pointer.
- malloc ==> osd_malloc to prevent mixed c++/c window allocations.
- Run to cursor (main view)
- In place memory editing (memory view)
- implement key handling (Up, down, ..) like in windows
- Tab and ESC not yet handled
- Functionality now matches win32 debugger
- Further code review/rewrite/simplification
- Added more comment headings
- fix a compile warning for gcc-4.4 (not detected by gcc-4.2)
- Horizontal divider bar to individually size views.
- minimum height aligned to win32 debugger

ARM: preliminary SA-1110 support [R. Belmont]

Verified all deco32 clocks and corrected HuC6280 clock following old
Charles McDonald notes I had about internal divisor. Added a note on
the Arm cpu used by this game: it's a Data East 101 custom
[Corrado Tomaselli]

Changed the following games to use the 76489A variant (verified on my
pcbs): Green Beret, Do Run Run, Mr.Do's Castle, Jail Break,
Shaolin's Road, Yie Ar Kung-Fu [Corrado Tomaselli]

Fixed sn76489a periodic noise once again (and simplified a bit of
code), now should be closer to or match real chips as sampled. Added
true clock divider emulation, so emulation may be a bit slower.
[Lord Nightmare, PlgDavid, Kold666]

Popmessages can now be used in drivers which have an MC6845.
[Curt Coder]

Ensure that RAM and bitmaps are cleared when the ms32 driver is
started to avoid 64-bit build crashes [David Haywood]

Converted HD63484 ACRTC to be device. [Fabio Priuli]

hng64 : Hacks the camera to work in sams64. [Andrew Gardner]

Fixed crash issues with mchampdx [Fabio Priuli]

s14001a: updated comments; got rid of the squealing noise (hidden
behind a #define now, code is still there) until some other issues
can be resolved. [Lord Nightmare]

Dumped the proms in D-Day (Jaleco) [Chack'n, Team Japump]

Fixed background and sprites colors in D-Day (Jaleco) [Angelo Salese]

UI menu interface changes [couriersud]
- all ui functions now expect a render_container

0.136u1
-------

IMPORTANT NOTE: As of this release of MAME, several important things
about the system have changed. Please read the following items before
attempting to compile this new version.

1. A new tool chain for Windows, based off of gcc 4.4.3 prerelease,
is now REQUIRED. Go to http://mamedev.org/tools to get the new tools.
The updated included with 0.136u1 WILL NOT BUILD with the old tools.
The new tool chain has support for building 64-bit MAME builds with
gcc, as well as built-in DirectX headers, and C++ support, which was
missing from the old tools.

2. Non-Unicode builds of Windows MAME are no longer supported. The
options to turn this off in the makefile have been removed, and
future changes are likely to solidify this requirement. If you are
still (God forbid) running on Win9x, you will need the unicows.dll
library to run MAME. Download unicows from Microsoft.

3. All code in MAME is now compiled as C++, plus there have been a few
small changes that take advantage of the C++ language. For the most
part, there is no effect on how drivers are written, except for some
nicer accessors to devices and address spaces. Future improvements to
take advantage of the C++ syntax will evolve slowly, and will be done
internally. We are not interest in outside attempts to do this work
for now.

4. The SDL OSD for MAME is now shipped as part of the main source
package. SDL builds for Windows are now regularly built as part of the
validation sequence for a new release. Thanks to R. Belmont,
couriersud, and Olivier Galibert for their work on the SDL port over
the years.

Source Changes
--------------
hng64 improvments [Andrew Gardner]
- bbust2 now has 3d geometry.
- fixed improperly loaded ROMs in sams64* games.
- hacked 3d acknowledge in a slightly different manner. Sams64 games
now show 3d.

Implemented what looks like a 'dynamic palette' bit. Fixes the
colors in sams64 games, but not roadedge or buriki.

RSP DRC changes: [Aaron Giles]
- fixed misaligned 32-bit accesses
- disabled DRC_SQV implementation as it breaks music in mtetrisc

Converted RSP callbacks into device callbacks. Removed a ton of tag-
based queries in favor of using the device passed. [Aaron Giles]

Added profiler_mark() calls around rdp_process_list() so that the RDP
time is separated from the RSP time. [Aaron Giles]

Added more decrypted opcodes to cb2001. [robiza]

Added driver data struct to cave.c. [Fabio Priuli]

Changed inline_config to be allocated separately to avoid alignment
issues. [Aaron Giles]

- Updated the handling of interrupts to match the documentation.
- Implemented uPD7801 timers.
- Configured port A on the uPD7801 to an output port.

Removed the various HAS_xxxx for sound cores. To select sound cores,
just choose them in the make system. Further granularity is not
necessary. This also means that the samples core is always required.
[Aaron Giles]

Base tilemap hook-up for cb2001. [Angelo Salese]

Fixed the gfx rom loading for Race Drivin' Panorama [David Haywood]

Vs. Net Soccer improvements:
- Emulated DMA protection for startup-checks [Olivier Galibert]
- Fixed Data ROM loading, game now boots [David Haywood]
- Marked Sprite + Sound ROMs as BAD_DUMP [David Haywood]

Converted the goldstar, liberate, sidearms and sidepckt drivers to use
driver_data [Atari Ace]

Makefile changes: [Aaron Giles]
- Removed CPP_COMPILE flag; all code is now compiled as C++ except
for zlib and expat
- Mapped INLINE to "static inline" since C++ has real inlining
- Added new 'default' make target which just builds the emulator.
Use 'make tools' to build the tools, or 'make all' to build the
whole thing.
- 64-bit builds now get a '64' suffix on them.
- Removed UNICODE flag from Windows; UNICODE is always enabled now.
- If OSD is not defined, we look for the built-in Windows
environment variable 'OS' and if it is set to 'Windows_NT',
we assume OSD=windows; otherwise we assume OSD=sdl.
- If TARGETOS is not defined, we look for the same variable
and set TARGETOS=win32 if it is set to 'Windows_NT'.
- Windows SDL builds have an 'sdl' prefix on the executable
so they can live side-by-side.
- Added cheesy auto-detection of 64-bit Windows builds (based on the
PATH including 'mingw64-w64')

Removed hacks surrounding unicode handling in main(). They are no
longer necessary with the new tools. [Aaron Giles]

Fixed typo in 8-bit eeprom case that broke operation in some games.
[Aaron Giles]

Fixed x86 DRC backend codegen bug that broke kinst. [Aaron Giles]

Got rid of setjmp/longjmp for error handling in favor of exceptions.
Fatalerror now maps to throwing an exception. [Aaron Giles]

[PIT8253] Update PIT counter even if there was no elapsed cycles (this
only affects fast drivers like at586 in MESS). [Miodrag Milanovic]

Fixed a bunch of minor quirks, and fixed gfxs in the dwarfd driver.
[Angelo Salese]

Changed berlwall, arkanoid, bakubrkr, mgcrystl to use YM2149.
[Corrado Tomaselli]

Verified and corrected clocks in halleys and exctsccr.
[Corrado Tomaselli]

Add support for Mahjong panel for mjgtaste. Makes this the default
input and alters the default eeprom accordingly to match factory
default. Note that you need to change both the game and the controller
setting from the driver configuration when switching input sources
since the two are mutually exclusive. [PsikyoFan]

Fix zeroize protection simulation in lieu of proper dongle dump.
[Bryan McPhail]

Adds missing sample rom to Gals Panic 4 (Korea)
[Brian Troha, Dumping Union]

misc Konami wip: [Fabio Priuli]
* moved a few routines (used for sorting graphics layers) to
konicdev.c since they are shared by several drivers
* added driver data struct to ajax.c and aliens.c
* added driver data struct + save states to: asterix.c, bishi.c,
blockhl.c, bottom9.c, chqflag.c, crimfght.c, dbz.c, gbusters.c,
gijoe.c, lethal.c, mainevt.c, moo.c, overdriv.c, parodius.c,
rollerg.c, rungun.c, simpsons.c, spy.c, surpratk.c, tail2nos.c,
thunderx.c, tmnt.c, ultraman.c, vendetta.c, xexex.c and xmen.c
* updated some Konami drivers above to separately allocate palette/
extra/work RAM instead of appending them to maincpu ROM; also,
reduced maincpu rom regions where appropriate
* replaced memory_set_bankptr with memory_set_bank where necessary
* added driver data struct & save states to gradius3.c

Converted taitosnd (aka tc0140syt) to be a device and updated the
related drivers to use the new code. [Fabio Priuli]

Replaced all occurrences of cputag_get_cpu with devtag_get_device:
the former function was just an alias and now cpus are no different
from other devices. Also removed cputag_get_cpu and cputag_reset
(another alias, not even used in the source) from cpuexec.h.
[Fabio Priuli]

Fixed knights rom labels [Dlfrsilver]

Metal Maniax improvements [Phil Bennett/luigi30]
* Fixed frame buffer display
* Started to add the other CPUs
* Added PCB layouts for layers 1 and 2
* Hooked up TMS34020
* Started to implement the ADSP-2105 network CPU and the CAGE audio
system [Phil Bennett]

Added some missing header declarations and static qualifiers. Added
validity.h to the core for consistency as well as an explicit foo.h
in each foo.c. [Atari Ace]

Added driver data struct to taitoair.c and taito_b.c. [Fabio Priuli]

VIA6522: Refactored interface to use READ/WRITE_LINE. [Curt Coder]

Cyber Tank improvements: [Angelo Salese]
* Fixed bitplane order
* Decoded sprite gfx format
* Hooked up the two bg tilemaps
* Wrote bare-bones video emulation for the Cyber Tank sprite chip /
blitter
* Added video boundary checks for the blitter

The starting value for an output port is now the default value, which
is based on whether it is active high or low. So the device will be
called the first time the line becomes active. Changed the eeprom
device to assume that the reset and clock are cleared until it's told
otherwise. [smf]

Added driver data struct to taito_l.c & opwolf.c. [Fabio Priuli]

Added driver data struct + save states to asuka.c (cadash was not
supporting saves), rainbow.c, rastan.c, taito_f2.c, taito_h.c,
taito_o.c, taito_z.c, topspeed.c & volfied.c. [Fabio Priuli]

Renamed mamecore.h -> emucore.h. [Aaron Giles]

New C++-aware memory manager: [Aaron Giles]

This is a simple manager that allows you to add any type of object
to a resource pool. Most commonly, allocated objects are added, and
so a set of allocation macros is provided to allow you to manage
objects in a particular pool:

pool_alloc(p, t) = allocate object of type 't' and add to pool 'p'
pool_alloc_clear(p, t) = same as above, but clear the memory first
pool_alloc_array(p, t, c) = allocate an array of 'c' objects of
type 't' and add to pool 'p'
pool_alloc_array_clear(p, t, c) = same, but with clearing
pool_free(p, v) = free object 'v' and remove it from the pool

Note that pool_alloc[_clear] is roughly equivalent to "new t" and
pool_alloc_array[_clear] is roughly equivalent to "new t[c]". Also
note that pool_free works for single objects and arrays.

There is a single global_resource_pool defined which should be used
for any global allocations. It has equivalent macros to the pool_*
macros above that automatically target the global pool.

In addition, the memory module defines global new/delete overrides
that access file and line number parameters so that allocations can
be tracked. Currently this tracking is only done if MAME_DEBUG is
enabled. In debug builds, any unfreed memory will be printed at
the end of the session.

emualloc.h also has #defines to disable malloc/free/realloc/calloc.
Since emualloc.h is included by emucore.h, this means pretty much
all code within the emulator is forced to use the new allocators.
Although straight new/delete do work, their use is discouraged, as
any allocations made with them will not be tracked.

Changed the familar auto_alloc_* macros to map to the resource pool
model described above. The running_machine is now a class and
contains a resource pool which is automatically destructed upon
deletion. If you are a driver writer, all your allocations should be
done with auto_alloc_*.

Changed all drivers and files in the core using malloc/realloc or
the old alloc_*_or_die macros to use (preferably) the auto_alloc_*
macros instead, or the global_alloc_* macros if necessary.

Added simple C++ wrappers for astring and bitmap_t, as these need
proper constructors/destructors to be used for auto_alloc_astring
and auto_alloc_bitmap.

Removed references to the winalloc prefix file. Most of its
functionality has moved into the core, save for the guard page
allocations, which are now implemented in osd_alloc and osd_free.

Added driver data struct + save states to darius.c & othunder.c.
[Fabio Priuli]

Added driver data struct to ninjaw.c, slapshot.c, warriorb.c, wgp.c.
[Fabio Priuli]

Extended the astring class wrapper into something useful, and
useable as a stack object. Also designed the interfaces to allow
for chaining operations. And added a casting operator to const
char * for seamless use in most functions that take plain old C
strings. [Aaron Giles]

Changed all uses of astring to use the object directly on the
stack or embedded in objects instead of explicitly allocating
and deallocating it. Removed a lot of annoying memory management
code as a result. [Aaron Giles]

Changed interfaces that accepted/returned an astring * to
use an astring & instead. [Aaron Giles]

Removed auto_alloc_astring(machine). Use auto_alloc(machine, astring)
instead. [Aaron Giles]

Major header file cleanup: [Aaron Giles]
- Created new central header "emu.h"; this should be included
by pretty much any driver or device as the first include. This
file in turn includes pretty much everything a driver or device
will need, minus any other devices it references. Note that
emu.h should *never* be included by another header file.
- Updated all files in the core (src/emu) to use emu.h.
- Removed a ton of redundant and poorly-tracked header includes
from within other header files.
- Temporarily changed driver.h to map to emu.h until we update
files outside of the core.

Added class wrapper around tagmap so it can be directly included
and accessed within objects that need it. Updated all users to
embed tagmap objects and changed them to call through the class.
[Aaron Giles]

Added nicer functions for finding devices, ports, and regions in
a machine: [Aaron Giles]

machine->device("tag") -- return the named device, or NULL
machine->port("tag") -- return the named port, or NULL
machine->region("tag") -- return the named region

(Note that machine->region() returns a pointer to a region_info class
which describes a region, not a pointer to the region's memory.)

Made the device tag an astring. This required touching a lot of
code that printed the device to explicitly fetch the C-string
from it. (Thank you gcc for flagging that issue!) [Aaron Giles]

Added a PCM sample end/loop callback to the RF5C68 core
[Barry Rodewald]

galaxold update: [stephh]
- Renamed set kkgalax to ckongmc
- Changed descriptions for ckongg and ckongmc
- Fixed dip switches and inputs for ckongg and ckongmc
- Updated ckongmc memory map

Added the mameconfig version to the -listxml output [Oliver Stoneberg]

Implemented inputs and sound in Gunpey [Luca Elia]

Added new member function space() to the device_config, along with
shorter constants to be used (AS_PROGRAM, AS_DATA, AS_IO). With no
parameters, space() returns the first address space, which is
commonly the only space present. Updated a few devices that referenced
the old space[] array to call the new function instead. [Aaron Giles]

Implemented basic blitter support in Gunpey [Tomasz Slanina]

Converted Gunpey to use RGB pens instead of hardcoded palette table
[Angelo Salese]

Enforce that numbers are all the same exact width when loading fonts.
[Aaron Giles]

Fixed a bogus protection check in Victor 21 [Angelo Salese]

Fix assert for prmrsocr + clones - no whatsnew needed [Fabio Priuli]

Redumped program and sprite roms in Cyber Tank [Antonio Gonzalez Jr.]

Added a mostly-complete SunPlus u'nSP core based on the one in
Segher's "Unununium". [Harmony]

Add lots of comments relating to 56-pin Mahjong interface and Psikyo
SK-G001 interface pcb based on discussion with alien_mame and
documents from other Mahjong PCBs. [PsikyoFan]

Verified clocks on Poker Ladies and changed Z80 clock of Mahjong
Gakuen from 6Mhz to 8MHz to match the other Mitchell hardware games
[Corrado Tomaselli]

i386: Improved accuracy of the various emulated models, makes CPU
detection programs detect the correct CPU (in MESS). [Dirk Best]
- eflags mask added
- Initial values for the EAX and EDX registers fixed
- cpuid values improved
- feature flags improved
- initial value for the cr0 register improved
- changed 486 to not support the cpuid instruction by default
- take a trap on invalid instructions instead of throwing a
fatalerror
- emulated the undefined flag behavior for the DIV/IDIV instructions on Intel CPUs

SDLMAME: improved OS X and SDL 1.3 SVN support, try to autodetect
SDLMAME targets [Couriersud]

SDLMAME: add BGRA support to -video soft [couriersud]

Fixed period for both sn76489 and sn76489A periodic noise; fixes
pitch in 'smooth criminal' demo for colecovision and fixes pitch
(but not the waveform, which will require more work) of music in
dorunrun; More work is required before the code will be bit accurate
due to the way the real LFSR and periodic generator work.
[Lord Nightmare, Kold666, PlgDavid]

SDLMAME makefile improvements: [couriersud]
- Fix TARGETOS detection on OS X.
- Do not try to check TARGETOS when cross-compiling
- For non-windows targets, try to auto-detect PTR64
- testkeys now builds again
- for unix targets, added a depend rule to sdl.mak which builds a
.depend file.

Fixed a number of compiler bugs found by PowerPC MacOS X. [R. Belmont]

Added casting operators to the region_info class so you can assign
a region to a generic type pointer and have it automatically convert.
Also added a bytes() method which is safe if the region is NULL
(useful for saying machine->region("foo")->bytes() and not crashing
if foo doesn't exist). [Aaron Giles]

Changed the region field in the device_config to be a region_info *,
and removed the regionbytes field. Updated all users of these fields
to use the new casting operators and bytes() methods instead.
[Aaron Giles]

Added subdevice and subregion methods to the device_config class, so
you can easily query for devices and regions that are device-specific.
The device prefix ("devicename:") is automatically prepended.
[Aaron Giles]
