Well I think it's time to get this out to a few people for final beta testing and if the feedback is positive I hope to release it before the end of the year, so time is ticking.
The first 10 people ( Windows 10 only ) that pm me will get a copy, I expect feedback from the testing so if you aren't prepared to do that then don't apply.
It's now all packaged up in a installer and going forward will only install/run under Windows 10 as some of the new functionality is only supported on that OS
The biggest change is that now it uses hardware acceleration for the drawing/scaling which takes a large load off the main and emulation threads resulting in much better performance and no more pixel creep, artifacts etc
It also now has a "Check for Updates" button that will download any future updates automatically, making it easier to maintain hopefully.
The version number is v18.0 ( which reflects the year of issue and won't clash with any past releases)
Bear in mind that any layout saved with this version won't then run on any previous versions! and please read the history.txt file for the list of changes/fixes or click the logo in the about box for just the latest changes in this update.
This version will also require a database rescan.
I'd also like to take the opportunity to wish all members a Happy New Year
