* Main loop rewritten; emulating speed and timing is now much more
faithful (i.e. speed in Pick'n'Pile).
* Added preliminary support for 'CTY' bankswitching scheme and recently
released 'Chetiry' ROMs. Special thanks to SpiceWare for adding music
support to this scheme.
* UI modernization (new widget look, dialog titles added, dialogs
refactored).
* The bankswitch scheme can now be forced by naming the ROM with a
specific extension (ie: .f8s for F8SC, .fe for FE, etc). The
supported extensions are the same as the ones from HarmonyCart and
UnoCart.
* Audio settings replaced with new 'audio.xxx' settings.
* FPS setting replaced with speed setting for adjusting emulation speed.

setting.

specific bank for its reset vector.
* Improved snapshots when phosphor is enabled
* Added Developer setting, which breaks on reads from write ports
* Fixed '_rwport'
* Added Developer setting, which breaks on reads from write ports. It
now detects such conditions in many more cases. This new way of
detecting RWP errors obsoletes the old '_rwport' debugger command,
which has now been removed.
* Added recently released 'Arkyology' prototype ROM to the database.
* Fixed 'Street Racer' and 'Video Olympics' ROMs to use paddles in both
ports.
* Added premliminary support for 'CTY' bankswitching scheme and recently
released 'Chetiry' ROMs. Special thanks to SpiceWare for adding music
support to this scheme.
* For UNIX systems: in the ROM launcher, when using symlinks use the
symlink pathname instead of the underlying filesystem pathname.
