Until a short while ago, RetroArch releases happened every few months but with RetroArch 1.7.9, the team behind it committed to releasing more frequent updates in order to better respond to user feedback. Without a doubt, they committed to what they promised as RetroArch 1.8.0 was released a mere 3 weeks after the previous version and RetroArch 1.8.1 reduced that to only 8 days!
