Default DOSBox 0.72 Released

August 30th, 2007, 08:32
Thanks to stealth for writing in to point out a new version of DOSbox has been released:
This release fixes a few bugs that slipped through when releasing 0.71.
Here a list of the changes:
  • 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.
Compatibility should be same as 0.71 and 0.70 aside from the game specific fixes.
More information.
