    QEMU v4.0.0-rc3 is released. QEMU is a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer.When used as a machine emulator, QEMU can run OSes and programs made for one machine (e.g. an ARM board) on a different machine (e.g. your own PC). By using dynamic translation, it achieves very good performances.When used as a virtualizer, QEMU achieves near native performances by executing the guest code directly on the host CPU. A host driver called the QEMU accelerator (also known as KQEMU) is needed in this case. The virtualizer mode requires that both the host and guest machine use x86 compatible processors.

    dynamically created town names in 18 languages, plus NewGRF support for additional languages
    freely distributable graphics, sounds and music
    framework for custom (user) written AIs

    DOSBox-X v0.82.13 is released. DOSBox-x is a branch of DOSBox. DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD.

    DOSBox-X Changelog:
    Mac OS X SDL2 builds now use the native OS X menu
    system instead of the "SDL drawn" menus.
    Mac OS X SDL1 builds now default to the OpenGL
    output (if compiled with OpenGL support). Under
    recent versions of OS X, OpenGL output gives
    better performance than surface (CGBitmap) based
    display.
    SDL2 builds now have working XBRZ scaler support.
    Mac OS X SDL2 builds updated to completely ignore
    touch events, because SDL2 sees the touchpad on
    Macbooks as a touchscreen. Prior to this fix, the
    DOSBox-X UI was unusable due to mixed input events
    from both the touchpad and the mouse input from the
    touchpad.
    SDL1 High DPI support for Mac OS X users with Retina
    displays.
    SDL1 fix for display problems (blank windows) on Mac
    OS X 10.14.x (Mojave).
    Windows builds (compiled with VS2017) now have working
    MT32 (Munt) emulation.
    Adjusting CPU cycles with F12 + - / F12 + + (Increment
    and Decrement Cycles shortcuts) now updates cpu cycles
    property. This fixes a problem where adjusting the cycle
    count then changing the CPU core caused DOSBox-X to reset
    the cycle count back to the original value.
    Linux/X11 support fixed not to assume XRandR extensions
    are present, but to instead ask the X11 server first.
    Simple scaler rendering has altered the RENDER start line
    state so that detection of a changed line triggers a block
    of rendering without compare within a limited count before
    checking again. This means a reduced CPU load with scalers
    because it only detects frame changes every line before
    changes detected, and then on average every 12th line
    when running the scaler code. Hopefully this helps the
    Raspberry Pi keep up with DOS gaming better.
    Simple scalers now offer compile-time (not run-time)
    option to omit per-pixel compare in scaler and process
    the entire scanline instead as a performance adjustment
    for slower and embedded systems.
    Video debug menu added. First item is one that blanks the
    display to test screen updating.
    Simple scalers (normal 2x-5x and SAI) revised to process
    changes and scaler rendering in larger blocks for possible
    performance improvement.
    Simple scalers fixed to properly compare all pixels to
    detect changes properly, instead of only the first 4-8
    pixels.
    EGA/VGA text rendering combined to reduce code copypasta
    and reduce bugs.
    VGA 16-color planar modes now obey CRTC byte/word/dword
    bits.

MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.

    Raine v0.64.16 is released. RAINE is an Emulator for Arcade games. Raine is a M68000 and M68020 arcade game emulator. Raine emulates some M68000 and M68020 arcade games and is mainly focused on Taito and Jaleco games hardware. It started as an experiment with the Rainbow Islands romset, dumped by Aracorn/Romlist. Raine can emulate many nice games now, and new games (previously unemulated) are appearing weekly.

    Raine v0.64.16 changelog:
    enough fixes for a new binary I guess... !

    melonDS v0.7.2 Hotfix is released. melonDS is an open source Nintendo DS(NDS) emulator. melonDS is part of a second wave of DS emulators. There are a few other emulator projects that are part of it, which you might have already heard of. Either way, check them out!

    melonDS Features:
    * almost-complete 2D graphics
    * 3D graphics (software renderer) with texturing, alphablending, lighting
    * input: keyboard and joystick, touchscreen
    * backup memory
    * booting from the BIOS
    * resizable video output window, preserving aspect ratio of individual screens

    melonDS Changelog:
    It appeared that, due to an oversight, melonDS 0.7.2 would crash when loading a ROM if the physical microphone init failed.
    This has since been fixed, and a hotfix has been pushed. If you downloaded melonDS 0.7.2 before this post, just redownload it to get the fixed version.
